Hey there Newgrounds, how's it been?
I figured since it's been a while since I've made an update id do one now!
For starters i'm currently working on the next EXCITING* adventure of No-Man! This time arround however, my good friend Liam has graciously offered to do the layouts for it. Being that he is an actuall professional Layout artist and my backgrtounds are ehhh... modestly adequate to put it lightly i definitely couldn't turn down that offer. Now being that his layouts are so much better than my previous ones and since i now don't have to worry about making a bunch of backgrounds this is opening me up some time to really improve on the animation side of things. So needless to say this is going to take a while. Definitely coming out this year but its going to take a bit of a while.
In the meantime here is a small preview of what it's looking like at the moment!
Now you ASK* what's this episode about? What is episode 5 about?
Well what I can say is that it's not episode 5 just yet and is something verry special to me. So yea you'il just have to wait. Thankfully newgrounds has like a billion animations you guys can watch in the meantime.
On a side note for the people who've not seen it yet i put out Under The Couch last month. Its a new series thingy i made so i'd be able to animate quick little episodes whenever i had some spare time and a creative itch, but not the time to make anything big. I may have a few out this year. I'm going to be pretty damn busy until october so i think NoMan might be the only really big thing i get to put out this year, but who know??
Oh and on a final note here's a thing i made an animation for. Its a creepy type reading of a bunch of Gaster related Undertale stuff. I animated gaster in it. It's pretty short but it was a fun little side thing to work on!
Thats it for now! Time to get back to work on No-Man!
*No-Man is never exciting
*Nobody is asking
Hey everybody, the No-Man Christmas special is out! My 7th and last animation this year. Even tho none of them are fantastic and mostly pretty short it feels really good to have managed to be more productive this year compared to 2015's measly 1 animation. I've got loads of ideas for new stuff and I'm really excited to work at improving my and the background art for my toons. I think these are the two elements i want to work out the most.
This animation was especially fun because i got to get my two young cousins involved. These two kids are probably my biggest fans so it was great to get to teach them about the voice acting proces and have them be part of one of my toon.
Lastly i want to thank everybody who's watched my stuff and given me feedback this year! Making cartoons is probably one of the things I like doing the most and the fact that anybody watches them at all means a lot.
So hope you all have a good holiday season and a happy new year and for the love of god 2017, please don't be as much of a dick as 2016 kthanks.
And as a asside note I'm getting ready to host a bad christmas movie night at my place so anybody who's into that kinda stuff here's a list of the ones we will be watching. I recoment loads of alchool before the viewing of any of the following.
I recently just released my new Animation Mr.Roots, my first creepy animations and i thought i'd write a small blurb about it and about what i have planned for the future in terms of animations.
This animation was a bit different then what i'm used to. I mostly make silly cartoons so doing a creepy more serious animation was an interesting challenge. On top of that this was the first time i ever had other animators help me do cleanup on an animation. Work has been pretty crazy lately so without the help of @cecameron and @amenduhh there is no way this would have been done on time for Halloween.
Re-watching this again i can already see some earea's of improvement i could work on to make my next craapy animation scarer. Slower pacing and allowing more room for suspence is definitely one of them.
For anyone interested here is a pic of my storyboarding process for this. Had them taped up on the wall next to my desk this past month, It il be kinda weird to see them off now.
Now looking to the future i have tons of ideas for future animations! I probably won't have much time until nect year to get into big projects but I am going to do my best to do some sort of small No-Man christmas special episode. I'm hoping to start working on it as soon as Halcon is over in about a week.
I'm also hoping that sometime early next year I'm hoping to finish an older animation i started all the way in April. I lost interest in it and got side tracked by the Summer Jams but i'm hoping to be able to recruit a few friends to help finish it up.
I also have some storyboards for a full Teyeler episode that I'm looking foward to get to as well as a few animation Ideas @cecameron and I came up together. So provided that my schedule allows it next year should hopefully be a really prolific year!
And that's all for now!
Thanks to everyone who has watched my animations so far this year.
Pico Day 2016 was amazing! This was my second time going and i can't overstate how fortunate i feel to be part of this comunity and get to meet so many friendly and talented people. This year instead of flying we took the plane which was a great stress off our backs, we drove from Halifax to Philly last year and barely had time to sleep/hang arround. This time we got to hang arround the NG offices on Sunday as well and do some retro game shopping which was a blast!
Anyhow, without further ado here is the collection of awesome sketches that were left in my sketchbook by you lovely people. Hopefully i get all of your usernames correctly, and if you've done one of the unsigned drawings lemme know, i'd love to know who did some of these great mistery drawings!
Page3 Tom gets a swanky new look!
Page10 @barnhouse (leethompson) did a really cool skelesnake @fgijonc makes an appearance and i got a signature by the legendary @strawberryclock . It was awesome to get to talk to SBC about B and other questions i'd had since i was a kid.
Page15 I don't remember the name of the person who drew this but i do remember him telling me he was some sort of bug mario. I think it's name is Gario?
Page17 A friendly crab by unknown?
Page23 I have no idea who drew this unicorn, but it looks fantastic!
Page26 Two of the last people i got to meet @misterchris and Katelyn. You guys were really nice and talented, wish i'd got to meet you guys sooner! Another great artist CF, will have to sort through my buisness card pile so i can find your NG username again.
And that's it for this year's sketches! I can't believe how many i got this year, you talented bastards. It was great to see so many people from last year again and to meet so many new fresh faces. Wish i coulda talked to even more of you guys. An enormous thanks to Tom for making such an event possible and gathering so much talent under one roof!
Hope to see you guys next year!
Happy Tuesday everybody!
As my month and a half off from work draws to a close i thought now would be a good time to make some sort of an update post. Having this time off was awesome and gave me some time to actually focus on some personal projects which I'd wanted to do ever since putting out No-Man ep3 last year. I've already managed to double my output from 1 submission last year. : P
I have some other projects I'm working on but they may not be ready for a while since i will be back to spending most of my time working soon, but I'm hoping to have at least 2 or 3 more toons out by year's end! This is the most motivated I've ever been to be creative in a long time and i hope i can maintain it for the rest of the year.
In case anyone might have missed them here are the two toons I've put out so far this year. One of them a collaboration with cecameron!
And finally I'm getting really excited for Pico Day and to see everyone again. Last year was a blast and i have a feeling this year will be even better, especially since we're flying this time instead of driving.
I just decked out a fresh new sketchbook and i hope I'll be able to collect lots of you guy's amazing art!
I'm thinking about making an illustration celebrating all types of Newgrounds
related super heroes for Pico Day. I want to make sure i'm not forgeting any
essential ones so i thought you guys may have some suggestions.
Here is who's on my list so far.
-Burnt Face Man
-Team Lazer Explosion
These are the ones that came to mind, tho there's so many amazing
animations on this website i'm bound to have missed some. So if you
guys can think of any i should include that would be awesome!
Yo guys! Just a quick post to say No-Man ep4 is out!
It's pretty short so if you have a minute and twnty seven to spare
please give it a look!
Thanks to everyone who helped me on this doing voices as
well as the awesome NG composers who allowed me to use
their awesome music!
Hey guys! I'm back from not posting anything to let y'all know that No-Man episode 4 is on track to be out in a couple weeks so keep yer eyes peeled to Newgrounds for another mediocre adventure! It's been a long time coming since my last animation but im pretty excited about this one, it looks much better than the previous episodes and should have higher quality sound as well. Thats about all i can say about it since it's pretty short, but from the title card you can tell it's obviously about No-Man doing something cool and heroic..... yeaaahhhh heroic.
Just wanted to make a quick post to comemorate my 100 (101 now, daming i was too slow!) fans on NG!
To comemorate this arbitrary number enjoy as sexy pic of sexy bare-chested Torso Warrior louging on some numbers.
I got lots of fun stuff planned for this year, and hopefully most of it will actually get done and nobody will regret clicking that heart button!
Thanks to anybody who follows me here or elsewhere.
No-Man continuity update!
So it has come to my attention recently that i messed up the continuity in a couple of pages and decided to go back and fix it. They’re not huge changes but the mistakes bugged me enough that they had to be fixed!
Firstly, i forgot to draw the window be broken when the apple mech falls in page 26. How did no man get in there before i don’t know because i sure as heck forgot to draw him punching his way in if he did!
Secondly, this one is a big mess up on my part but in page 29 i drew them flying off the apple bot except it was still standing so that’s done and fixed now! Don’t know how i made such an obvious mistake but that’s dealt with now!
And finally since i was in the process of editing older pages i decided it was a good opportunity to revise the whole comic and make it more appealing to he masses by making use of modern 3D technologies! This will allow me to tell the true tale of No-Man in a way i couldn’t do before, and so behold a small preview of the changes to come!
INTRODUCING YOYO BAR! No-Man’s lovable CG companion!
YoYo, he speaks funny, that should bring in the young reader demographic! Watch as this lovable alien from Xlarg0n 12 flips the story you know and love upside down.
His inclusion really enriches the world of No-Man… heck maybe i can get rid of No-Man and replace him with YoYo.
I’ve also gone back and added more background characters to scenes, a feat that would have once taken days to draw now only requires only MINUTES of work thanks to Stock Photo technology!
So yeh basically get ready for No-Man on Roids! This shit is getting REAL!
RIP in peace YoYo
