Special thanks go to Oliver Moore who joins us again in working on Chapter 1, where his hard work will provide the beautiful score to this episode of our story. You can listen to his other work (including the High Hopes Theme) on his SoundCloud (soundcloud.com/mercurymusic-4) and his Instagram, @mercuryolie This would be a much harder and slower process without him, and the final product would be nowhere near as good.
We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have an audience both so patient and so kind. You have waited an awful long time for this episode and I can say with confidence that it will be worth the wait. Alex (@abdillustrates), our illustrator and Amy (@bin_witch_illustration), our colourist have been hard at work producing beautiful frames, just like this one. So far this episode has taken over 200 hours of work, which we have had to fit in around full time jobs, moving, and family - this is why we only just now find ourselves coming towards the end of the process. Thank you again for your patience.
You can continue to support us by sharing our story with your friends: like and comment on Chapter 0, Subscribe to abdillustrates on YouTube, follow us here, and finally follow us on Instagram, @theshriekingwizardco
High Hope Low Rolls is a bumbling Dungeons and Dragons game turned animated show, by Matt Kemp; Beth Smith, Alex Brennan-Dent, Jazz Slater, Amy Manning, and me, Jenny Budd.
Inspired by: each episodic adventure of Geralt & Jaskier
Style: violin x piano duet
Notes: recording done will in the library + added piano track
Look, I heard your note, and, yes, you're right, maybe real adventures would make better stories. And you, sir, smell chock-full of them. Amongst other things. I mean, what is that? Is that onion? It doesn't matter. Whatever it is, you smell of death and destiny. Heroics and heartbreak.
**THE STRUMMING OF HEARTSTRINGS - AKA - BAR/BAND PART 3**
Hello!! So, for the third (AND FINAL, I MEAN IT THIS TIME) part of my not-so-oneshot, Bar/Band (part 1 and part 2 are here as well as on ao3), I will be posting exclusively on Ao3... it’s a long one fellas... and in the tradition of out-doing myself from the chapter before, this time I have included a song alongside artwork.
The song posted is an original I have included in the third chapter, so if you’d like to listen along to my acoustic rendition... it’s there.
**DRAWINGS FOR THE STORY ARE BELOW, WARNING SOME SPOILERS MAY FOLLOW! THE PICTURES CAN ALSO BE FOUND WITHIN THE STORY ON AO3** I hope you enjoy it! :D
wanted to post something without keyboard clicks. excuse the accidental nondiatonic notes and technical flaws (aka mistakes and constant arpeggiation because my hands are too small to play my own music. class is in a few minutes so I'm not redoing it). also I only realized after the fact that the chord structure at the opening is very similar to satie's first gymnopedie but oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
