I've submitted two movies to NG so far, with lukewarm results. I've poured my heart and soul into this one, so here's hoping for a breakthrough.
If you're an NFL nut ( notably a Cleveland Browns or Pittsburgh Steelers fan ), you're in for a treat. Hope you all enjoy it!!
It's been nearly two years since I posted anything on Newgrounds, so here is proof that I'm still alive and well. SchoolHouse Browns is on Newgrounds!!!
It's been nearly a year since I submitted my CHEAPO COMPUTERS movie on here.
I've more or less been on a creative hiatus due to ongoing personal issues. I've finally came out of my deep funk and am in the process of creating something truly unique. This project that I'm working on is an animated music video with a crayon look and feel to it. It follows a typical boy-meets-girl plot, but the two being together sparks many abstract, fun, and artistic atmospheres around them. The song playing will be "Dreaming" ( covered by the Smashing Pumpkins ).
If all goes well, I should be done with this video in about a month or so. I promise you, this will be something really good. Wish me luck, folks. ;-)
So, I've been screwing around with Adobe After Effects for a week over an animation that I wanted to submit to Newgrounds. The movie is called CHEAPO COMPUTERS USA. It's nearly two minutes in length, and when you look at it, you can probably tell that I've been inspired by Egoraptor.
This is actually my very first animation project, and my very first submission to Newgrounds. I've previously had technical difficulties just trying to render the thing correctly and trying to implement a loader. When I first submitted the movie, it was without a loader, and the sound didn't play at all. Amazingly, that malfunctioning flash file passed the judgement phase, but I deleted it shortly afterwards.
The stable version that's on NG is still rough around the edges, but the public has responded well enough for the flash to get a modestly high score, and I'm really happy for that. Check it out for yourself. You may have to wait for the loading to be done, since it's almost 10 megs, but it should be worth the wait. :-)
This website is rather new to me, even though I've probably known it's existence since a few years back.
I know what you're probably thinking in your head. "F***ING n00B!!!"
...and you're right. I am. I don't know if that's the attitude that most people here carry or what, but I came here to represent myself in a straightforward manner. I'd like to submit games, and cartoons, as well as look and review other people's works here. If possible, I would also like to make new friends and interesting people.
Right now, I do not know much of this fangled thing we all know as FLASH, but I am eager to learn it and make some magic with it. For now, I am a programmer and a person that's be drawing since the hey days of Crayola markers on walls.
So, how's about a warm welcome and perhaps some intros about yourselves?
Oh yes, one other thing. The screenshot below is my game in development... "Dreamwave". It's a rhythm/space shooter game that I'd like to turn into flash and share with everybody someday.
