4338851_146741108651_ezgif-4124877029.gifHappy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians on Newgrounds. Let's go and have fun, shall we?

 

(Also, long news post/update coming soon from me? I've been meaning to do one for the past few months)



It's been a few months since I last did a news post on here, and I hope to do them more often whenever I release new content, but sometimes so much releases at once, I kinda forget.

 

So here's a shameless advertisement for my new cartoon!

 

Do you ever think to yourself and say, "man, those short people are EVERYWHERE." Well, I never thought that, but I made a cartoon about it anyways: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/672541

4338851_145919610893_78f9c029930a068e3f31c1f5a1f56950.png

I made Short People within a day by using a storyboard I created a few weeks before, because I felt like I won't be releasing anything for a little while, so here's something to remind you I'm still here!

 

I'll also talk about the latest cartoons I've helped out with since my last news post:

 

The biggest battle of the century has begun: Robot Jones vs. Flikkernicht will finally duke it out once and for all in this intense cartoon, http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/669849

Joey goes on a quest to find the meaning of his life, even if it mean's he must sacrifice his body to the greater good in Joey Testhttp://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/670050

A grand arguement between Sanjay the Squirrel and Timmy the Turtle (amazing names, am I right?) happens in this heated battle of hockey in Stream of Consciousnesshttp://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/670197

The collaboration that took way too long to make and made me go insane multiple times about an already forgotten Pixar character from an overrated movie is finally completed, The Disgust Collab. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/671287

I'm amazed about how much attention this got, for it being a collab about Disgust, and it also being the most viewed video on Newgrounds for February! We even recieved a few videos and parodies of this collab from other users on Newgrounds.

Mobile is a pretty cool guy, so check out how cool he is in Happy Birthday MobileSpider. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/671720

Mobile will soon dominate the world, by stealing one corgi at a time...

Also, the New Wave group has been releasing a lot of cartoons lately! Be sure to check out the Newgrounds and YouTube playlist for New Wave, as well as the Twitter to keep up with new cartoons from us!

I believe that is it for now, but I do have 3 cartoons planned for Newgrounds soon.

One cartoon is for Pico Day! Unfortunately I won't be able to attend to in person, which really blows because I wanted to meet up with everyone, but hopefully next year I can go.

Another cartoon, which should be out in the next few weeks, is actually about an upcoming show on TV! This one is quite long, so look out for that.

The last cartoon I'm working on is actually a series I want to begin. I probably won't do more than 1 episode, but the one episode (pilot) I do want to produce, will be fairly long, between 7 to 12 minutes. At the moment I am making a series bible for it, that way I can show it around if I ever want to come back to this idea in the future and revise it. It's a really fun project so far. I'll try to post the series bible when I finish it or release the first episode. At the moment, most of the characters and scripts are in drafts and are most likely to change, so I can't show too much of it yet!

 

That is all for now, and I hope you enjoy Short People and the other recent New Wave cartoons! STAY SAFE.


New Cartoons, 100 Fans, and New Wave, Oh My!

Updated

Whoa, a lot of things have happened recently, and its quite overwhelming.

 

 

I guess I'll start off that I was a part of 5 new videos since my last update on here, so I'll quickly go over them:

Ever wanted pussy but always failed? Watch this tutortial and find out how to get some instantly.

This collab was made with me and alot of people within 24 hours for fun, so be sure you follow everyone who helped out.

Donald's back and better then ever... Maybe.

It's a party with the boys.

A Pixel Day submission I made with MobileSpider, Flikkernicht, and Conahugh, even though no pixels were involved. We got third place, which is awesome!

Going outside with your pet can always be a challenge, especially if you want it to get something. We created this as a final project for our classes. Originally, we had a grand idea planned out for it, but all of us forgot to work on the cartoon until the last day! So we all spent around 24 hours making a 2 minute cartoon. It's a bit more slower paced than some of the other videos I worked on, but I think it turned out pretty good. So be sure to follow Lajbros, Conahugh and TheJanitor9k for making this as well.

 

 

 

Next up is a big thank you to everyone, as I just hit 100 fans this morning!

4338851_145400757863_11ccc2f660a194191c1dda0576fd52e1.png

This is unreal to me, as I always had a huge goal of getting 100 fans on Newgrounds, but I never actually thought it would actually happen.

4338851_145400781011_3220ef095880ff1d32dab6b03a972abe.png

A lot sure has changed within the last year, as I didn't get my first follower until late 2014.

 

 

Next is something I'm really excited for, and that is Pico Day!

I got the email to go one morning and I was pumped. At the moment, I would like to say I can go 100%, but it isn't confirmed. Financial issues are involved, so I have been trying to save up as much money as I can so I can go.

 

 

Something I would like to bring up is New Wave!

You probably have started noticing a New Wave logo at the end of some cartoons on Newgrounds. New Wave is a group some friends and I started back in late October. We don't have any major plans for it just yet, but stay on the look out when we do.

 

4338851_145400885591_NewWaveCrew.png

 

Here's a picture of some of the New Wave boys posing in a photoshoot. Lukas (lajbros) even put this picture in A Boy and His Dog, so keep an eye out for that.

 

 

 

Final thing I'll be bringing up is some hints towards new cartoons and collabs!

 

One collab in particular about a man and a robot which should be releasing this Friday. 

Another cartoon that I am working on should be releasing any day now, I have just been waiting for someone to finish a scene for it. It's about some good ol' hockey.

A parody I have been working on with Shulp and Alex Sarzosa should be releasing any day now as well. It's about a very special Canadian cartoon.

Final hint I'll bring up is a collab that I started back in late-September with Conahugh and Mobilespider, and It should finally be released around late-February. It is probably the biggest project I have ever been involved in, as over 30 people are working on it. I have posted a lot of hints about it on Newgrounds, so stay tuned for that.

 

 

This has gone on way longer than I expected, but hopefully you will look forward for what's to come!

 

STAY SAFE

The battle that all of Newgrounds has been waiting for has begun. The war against Flikkernicht has begun against Robot Jones.

Flikkernicht has sent his death threats towards Robot Jones in this recent video. We hope both supporters of each side will stay safe and not be harmed.
