So this seems to be getting some pretty positive results to everyone trying it out, so I thought I'd give it a shot as well. If you like what you see on my channel here and you'd like to see more, but at even better quality and at a higher rate of uploads, this here would do the trick!
I don't expect anyone to donate anything, just subscribing or even watching my stuff alone means a lot and is very helpful. But if you choose to do so, that would be even MORE helpful and extremely appreciated. And no, in response to people's comments on other people's Patreon videos, this isn't "e-begging", it's more of a, "hey, if you want to support this animator and get more content out to you, here's something you can use if you'd like" thing. We'll see how this goes...
And by the way in case you're wondering, everything I'm saying in the video is true, it's just that some of the little sketches I draw in it are just over-exaggerated. lol. And I don't have like a billion little commissions allover the place, but I do have animation/storyboard work I need to do for people. With Patreon though, I'd be able to focus my efforts on my own content for you. UNLESS it's a video for RicePirate.
And BY THE WAY I was just kidding about the MLP Homestuck thing, I love you guys, too.
Also you can click here to watch it on YouTube.
Heyo everyone, you know those videos that all just copy each other and they show you little convenient tricks you can use throughout your day to make it a bit easier and they give it a really retarded name? Life Hacks, are they called? Well I made one of those! Well, a fake one. You'd have to be an idiot to think that it's real. But, then again, the majority of the population is pretty idiotic.
I basically just got new camera equipment and wanted to do something with it, and this is what we got. Also, I finally moved to Pennsylvania. I used to live in this general area years and years ago, and now that I just completed high school, I'm back. About a week or so ago I got a chance to visit the Newgrounds office and got to meet the great TomFulp and JohnnyUtah. They're pretty swell people. I plan on dropping by more often in the future.
Anyway, yes, I'm still doing animation stuff, I'm ALWAYS doing animation stuff. Hopefully soonish I should be uploading a cartoon here, but it may be a while, there's a couple that I need to get done.
And yes, the hat I'm wearing in that picture down there makes me look like I'm kinda drunk or something, but whelp what are ya gonna do
And it's done forever. Forever. I finished it. It's a weird feeling. Like, I don't feel super happy and relieved, I just feel like it's a little vacation and I'll have to go back to it in a few weeks... even though I know that's not the case, but hm.
But anyway, I'm moving back to my original location, Pennsylvania, this June 6th. That should be nice. I hope.
But that's that for now, still working on a game and like three videos.
So school for me ends this week... well technically next next Monday, but basically that's one week. I just have to pass my stupid math class and I'm home-free. It's been a little stressful, but we'll see how it goes. I'm working on a video still, the storyboard has finally been finished (the video is like 5-6 minutes long) and now I'm on the line-work. I want to finish it before I move, but uh... that's probably not gonna happen, lol. Hopefully though. Hopefully. And the game I've been working on is still going. I can't wait to add in the characters in such... but I'll get more into detail on that later, at least, if it hopefully ever gets to that point. Also I got a couple of commission animations coming up soon... I gotta hurry! Why am I wasting my time making these posts? BACK TO WORK!
So, I decided to publicly announce on this site that I do commissions. Yep. Here's a list of what my prices are generally, though they're not entirely fixed, it will depend on what you want. But here you go.
Sketch - $9.99
Colored Sketch - ~$14.99
Finished Character Drawing - ~$19.99
Painting Style Picture - ~$29.99
Animated GIF - ~$39.99
At this time I am not accepting anymore commissions for animations, I have enough of those on me right now. Unless it's like under 30 seconds or something, we might be able to discuss it.
Again, prices will vary depending on what you want and how specific you are. I will also make static or animated icons for you if you wish. For the right price, of course. Though that price probably won't be very much. Who knows.
Lemme know what you think of these prices, too expensive, too cheap, whatever. I haven't really made a post like this before, generally when I do commissions people come to me or I offer it to them personally and these are generally the prices that we agree with. They're happy with it, maybe you will be.
And remember, I'm still practicing. When you commissions me, more than likely, it will end up looking better than the examples I have shown up there. Some of them are kinda old.
I hate making an FP post when I didn't actually upload anything, but some may be wondering about this. Or maybe no one is. But either way, here you go.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, for some people) I won't be making it to Pico Day this year. This was a pretty big disappointment to me, as I really wanted to meet Tom and a couple others. I was GOING to, but a couple of things came up, for one thing, I can't miss like 1-2 more days of school this quarter (AVP, which is basically this thing where you go to college part-time of your high school day and get both college and high school credits for it) or else I'll get kicked out, and I can't afford to take any extra classes to get those last credits I need to graduate. Not only that, but money has been an issue.
But the good news is, I'm moving to PA this Summer! Late May or early June. Ambler, PA, to be precise, which is like a few minutes away from the NG office, so during that time I'll be able to meet the guys over there, so that's pretty nice. I'm really excited to see my days of school come to an end and finally start adulthood, with my new life over in Pennsylvania. Can't wait.
Other than that, there is a video I'm working on, OF COURSE there is, there always is, as well as commission work I've been doing. Oh and that game I mentioned a while back. Mhm.
If any of you are interested though, I upload artwork I'm practicing on over in the portal every-so-often, so you may want to take a look at it. Hopefully I'll get somewhere with it. I also have a Tumblr. Well I had one for a few years, but there's the news again. If you actually want a link to it instead of just reading the fact that I have a Tumblr, you can go ahead and look at it on my page here on NG.
Oh and I'll be accepting art commissions at this time, if you want a character of yours drawn or whatever lemme know and we'll discuss it. Thanks. The end.
Video I made, actually I wrote it like last August I think? But I finally had a little bit of time to actually make it a few weeks after I finished Magic Wand Infomercial.
I want to make a sort of longer video soon (oh what am I saying, I WANT to? No, I don't want to at all, but I want to FINISH one). Still thinking of a plot and such. There's also a LAN multiplayer fighting game I've been making for the past month or so, but it's still in really early stages so we'll see how that goes.
And a big thanks to Tom for the front-page and shoutout! Thank you so much, none of this would be possible without him.
Uploaded this here a few days ago, here it is on the glorious Newgrounds. And here it is on YouTube. Took maybe like a month or two of total time to make, but it was stretched out for almost half of a year due to other projects that were keeping me busy, such as A-Hole in Time, the one I did for RicePirate.
2014... it's uh... kind of off to a... start... to say the least... yeah, enjoy the film.
So I uploaded a year-in-review video for this year, just like I did last year. It is right here if you want to watch it.
So, for the typed version of the video, 2013 started with the publishing of Dual Force in April. As some of you know, it has so far been the longest video I've made to date. It's also been the longest time I've ever put into a video, partially because the file got corrupted and erased like a month's worth of work. Nevertheless, I pushed through and finished it.
Being disappointed with how much time it took me and how I really didn't feel accomplished at all after it's completion, I felt like making a short animation and finishing it fast. I pretty much always do original stuff, but this time I decided to make something about League of Legends. And less than a week later, Teemo's Birthday was born. Lol.
After which, Saminat, Rambojoe and I all got together and started to write a new script, and right about when Summer began, Sparkle Pom-Pom Squad was released. In comparison to my other projects, though it really doesn't mean much at all, it did the best. Huh, I wonder why...
About a month or so later, I started working on a video I called Automation, and in September, I released a trailer for it on YouTube, right here. Right after, I wanted to make a shorter video with a simpler plot, so I started working on that. Both of these videos are still currently in production and I'm really not sure when I'll finish them.
In early November, I got to work on yet another project, this one however was a commission animation for RicePirate, and I finished it just about a week ago. You should be seeing it uploaded to his channel and such whenever he feels like it, probably within a week or something, I dunno. He did all of the writing and audio-composing, while I did the rest. All I'll say is that I think it's pretty hilarious, the timing was executed very well, and his acting, as always, was phenomenal.
Other than projects that I have lent voices over for, that's about it for 2013. Hopefully in the next few months before Spring you'll see these other two cartoons out. I have so many ideas and things I want to do, but time is always an issue, especially with school being on top of everything. So here's hoping to a good, or at least mildly tolerable 2014, because to be completely honest, 2013 was absolutely horrendous and I hated it. It's been nothing but horny teenagers trying to be Spazkid making snarky cartoons and embarrassingly bad hentai. This was a terrible year, and I'm very disappointed in everyone for it.
