Posted by Twisted4000 - December 2nd, 2012

So me and a bunch of other dudes got invited into the Flash Advent Calender 2012 hosted by PuffBallsUnited.

Basically, we each made a little Flash cartoon that will play depending on which object you press on the screen. Every object on the screen has a number next to it. The number represents the day this December the video for that object will unlock. So let's say it was December 8th. That means that object 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 will all be able to be played that day. Sorry for such a dumbed-down explanation, but I'm getting pretty tired of seeing all these people giving it a low review because they think "the links are broken". Well, they're not broken... just locked for now.

You can play it here. There's 23 total cartoons, so there will be a new video unlocked each day until Christmas Eve.

What's funny is that my submission to it was marked for December 1st. You can also watch it here, on YouTube. Saminat and I did the voices. Saminat's funny. He's cool.

So a a big thank you to PuffBallsUnited and TomFulp for inviting me in this and giving me this opportunity to work with some pretty cool guys, and a Merry Christmas to you all!

Oh and I'm working still working on a bunch of projects. And art. And voice things.

k bye

Alright so Thanksgiving Break started for me, so that's a full week to have a bit of extra time to get stuff done. I'm still working on the first Dual Force episode as I mentioned, and it's been nearly a month and a half and I only have about 2 minutes of footage complete, but that's mainly because I've been working on like 3 other things, and school. :S There's one mini animation I'm making for something to upload to YouTube, and then I was also invited into that Christmas Advent Calender thing, so I decided to make a little video for that as well. And as I've been saying for like 3/4 of a year now, I'm still doing design and planning for the game I want to make. And I'm still thinking of a title.

Happy Halloween, peeps


More filler content from yours truly

So anyway, now I'm working on a series I wanted to do for a while, I'll have a preview of it up when I get enough progress on it. I'm also doing some designing and stuff for the game I wanted to make, which I've been mentioning for like half a year now.

Right so there's a series I wanted to start for a while, but so far couldn't because I'm still waiting to gather some audio for it, so instead I just made this anime-mocking type thing to hold some things over. Practicing some new techniques and drawing overall, of course.

There's a game I wanted to make for a few months as well but it's gonna be a while before I get to work on that, if ever.

Also I might make another quick animation thing soon if I still don't get the audio, plus it's all practice in the end anyway so. Yeah enjoy.

Oh yeah one more thing, if you ever wanted to get a camera movement effect but didn't want to use a v-cam or anything, well I have this tutorial on that, it's basically about moving the camera with graphics, directly in and solely with Flash, and you can watch it on YouTube here.

This took half my life but I hope you like it.


Also I have ideas for a game I want to make and a series sometime, but who knows, we get there when we get there. For now I just need to practice getting better at drawing in general before I start another big project so.

Edit: Also, have a free voice demo! I just treated up my closet so I decided to test out my mic in it so yeah here. http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/501281?up dated=1

Sooo this took me like forever, and I want to finish the movie within like a month or so, but for now here's a trailer. The audio and video quality are just dreadful thanks to all that converting and rendering I had to do, but nonetheless, here it is.


The music you hear in the trailer is "DenX - Lurking" by lhceist41. I'm going to be using a bunch of this user's tracks, they're pretty amazing...

So I opened up a Formspring account, in case anyone was wondering anything, or perhaps people just wanted to ask completely random things to see my responses. If you are interested in any of that, here you go.

Posted by Twisted4000 - July 14th, 2012

And now I am back. During the vacation I was on, I had a lot of time to practice drawing, sketching a bunch on paper whenever I could. And now, it's time to work on the movie once more...

Posted by Twisted4000 - July 7th, 2012

Starting this Tuesday, the 10th, I'll be gone until the 14th on Saturday. During this time I won't get any progress on The Freelance Police cartoon, but I'll practice drawing some more. Lot of stuff with my art I gotta work on.

So how's The Freelance Police coming along, by the way... it's going, but slowly. I'll be lucky if I finish it by the end of Summer, since some scenes in it are going to be pretty crazy, and I want to take my time and have a DECENT finished product rather than rushing it. Quality over quantity is the way to go. Also you can watch this update video I just released. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNb4cnvfLbA

Also I'm thinking of starting a series once it's finished.

That is all.

Just yesterday, a small associate for my projects and a very good, close friend had just left for US Navy training. deadlycheese123 voiced some small and big parts in a couple of my videos, he was the archer from The Knights of Twistalia, Bates from You're Firing Me!?, and Jimmy from StarNova. He always enjoyed the things I created and was very encouraging. For the rest of the Summer he will be in boot camp, until he returns this September, then he'll be off to serve in the Navy. I wish him good luck.

And if you're wondering about anything to come in the near future... well I've been working on the next project lately, "The Freelance Police", basically a buddy cop sub-genre thing. It's coming along, though slowly, it's getting there. I'm attempting to improve my general drawing skills and make the overall style just look nicer, because I know it's gravely needed. At some point there's this game I want to make with my cousin, I have no idea when it'll happen but at some point it will. He's going to college and he's pretty amazing at character design.

That is all for now
