I just record my voice in the living room, where the computer is. For this, you don't need a studio, just the microphone and a recording program.

I think mushrooms would have to make up only a small part of  their diet, at least in the raw form.  All mushrooms have some poison in them in the raw state. "Safe" mushrooms lose the poison when you cook, them, but even button mushrooms will make you sick if you eat a lot of raw ones.  Fish is a fine substitute if you can get them, but they are as sentient as the lions. Also, mushrooms have a pretty low concentration of nutrition in them, and carnivores like lions need high nutriton (like in meat) because they have short intestines which means not much time to digest things.
I really like your storyline, though!  If we knew how the animals got halo brains, maybe we could figure out a way in which the phenomena that created it could also effect some plant or fungus/mold/slime stuff in such a way to help make a meat substitute for carnivores?

Actually, I would rather not have you use Sedulous and Limn as I have a specific story in mind for them...though I've barely gotten around to writing it (rats! Dern schoolwork!) If they were shown in any other way than the story I imagined them apart of, I think it just wouldn't feel...right to me. Just throwing that out there. <3

No, not the color mentioned, but your voice for them in the videos... It sounds like you're in an auditorium speaking at a bit of a distance...

I just want to let everyone know that a NofNA fancomic is A-OK with me.

Especially if it's an arc of your own design!

Hey, I've had the same idea. =D I was pondering drawing a short fancomic centering on my fancharacter Mentality. So I think it's a pretty good idea. ^^
I've only posted twice in the forums, but if you wanted to use Motion, that would be fine by me.

About drinking milk. Human originally couldn't drink milk. They actually evolved a gene that allowed them to digest lactose even after they'd reached adulthood. People who are lactose intolerant are actually people who don't have this gene. Therefor animal could also logically develop this gene. However it is the question of whether they did or animal would allow other animals to drink milk from them. It's relatively easy for us because we've domesticated cows and they don't really have a say in the matter.

Another thing was I though of that carnivores may be able to get nutrients is through specially bred plants or fungi. Most likely when animals first developed halo brain they didn't suddenly begin to get along. They may have even had wars or at least skirmishes with other groups of animal, which carnivores could have eaten the dead from. Then as society progressed and they became more peaceable they began to breed plants with more of the nutrients they needed and as they did, adapted to eat them more than they did other animals. Until they reached the point where they didn't need to eat other animals, even though they still could. That would also solve the problem of their teeth being the same, because they would have used them for fighting.

Just some thoughts.
-------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:
Here's an example I thought of for the breeding of the mushrooms/plants and society developing from a violent to a more peaceful one (I kind of made it a story because that's what popped into my head). I'll use a pride of lions for it because they're already social animals:

Animals already have halo brains. The lions are currently at war with the wildebeests. The lions have always hunted the wildebeest, but now that they are smarter the wildebeest have started fighting back. The lions occasionally entitle the help of other local predators like hyenas, leopards, and cheetahs occasionally and they wildebeest are allied with other herbivores such as antelope, oryx, or even elephants. The predators eat the dead from the battles or just straight out hunt the herbivores.

Some generations later...
The lions have discovered a new kind of mushroom that gives them enough nutrients that they don't have to kill the wildebeest as ofter, provoking them less. They use the mushrooms as a good that they trade with other lions and predators.

Some generations later...
Some of the lions may have begun to feel there is something morally wrong with killing another creature that can think and feel and are feeling the losses from such a drawn out war, but as a majority they still hunt the wildebeest. They have begun farming the mushrooms and they are in high demand. They have also begun breeding special strains of mushrooms that contain more nutrients.

Some generations later...
They lions and other predators send embassies to the herbivores offering peace. It takes a long time to negotiate as they struggle through language barriers and old hatreds, but perhaps the war has finally stopped. The lions can now live totally on a diet of the mushroom, fish, bugs, and maybe other plants they've begun to grow. Some still hunt the wildebeest, but they're generally shunned.

Some generations later...
All the animals are at peace. They have developed a primitive version of common in the area (they haven't socialized with animals from other regions yet). A few groups still live as 'wilds' and some fall to their inner animal and eat the dead or buy illegal meat (like the whole meat/drugs concept).

This story may have been echoed throughout the entire animal world until society has reached what it is today.


Sorry I'm rather long-winded, but the idea just popped in my head and I couldn't help but make a story about it. I'm not saying this is what happened, it's just an idea.

I dunno if anime would work. Some pople (me included) aren't that fond of anime, and an average animation would catch more attention, yes?

anime studio is a program -_-
