Twisted4000's News

Posted by Twisted4000 - May 4th, 2012


Soooo here's a trailer I put together last night for the cartoon I've been working on for over a month now. It'll be a few weeks 'till it's finished though, so you'll have to wait a bit...

The first music track you hear in the trailer is "Derelict Trailer", which you can listen to here, and the second one is the "Epic Trailer Music" by Oney, which you can listen to here.

Alright, so, here's some updates, in case you were wondering.

The animation I'm working on, StarNova, is going pretty well. Progress is moving faster than it was for the past few weeks, mostly because my computer was dead and I had to use my brother's whenever he was out for work. But a big thanks to him for letting me use it nonetheless, otherwise nothing would've gotten done whatsoever.

Now that my PC is up and running again, it's coming along. For some bad news I have, I'm sorta scrapping the game I was making for a few months now, progress was just too slow, I'm working on too many projects, but, most importantly, it wasn't very fun. It worked, you could attack monsters, they attacked you, they respawned fine, but it was just too sloppy and pretty glitchy. HOWEVER, I do plan on making another game once I have a couple of other cartoons out (part 1 to Desca being one of them), and I'll make it more simple, that way... I'll actually be able to finish it. Just sorta planning a side-scroller with a couple of playable characters, unique voices will be needed for each. But that's a while from now.

So uh yeah. Just got RicePirate's voice in for StarNova a few days back, turned out awesome. He did some improvising to some of his lines, it was pretty amazing.

Anyway... that's all for now. Have a screenshot:

Some More Updates

...Is taking forever to finish...

Just a cartoon I'm making about these two girl people who defend this store from this other guy who's apparently trying to kill them or something. SirUndead and I voice the two characters. It's pretty neat.

It's just taking so long, it's ridiculous, I see all these other animators constantly surpassing me and releasing something like once every 1-2 weeks AND with decent quality, I mean they literally get like 5 videos out before I get one, ha.

Ah well.

In the mean time, there's also Desca, which I told you all about, and that's going alright, but the reason why I just randomly started making StarNova is because I'm trying to get something out there so I have something for people to watch for a while, because... well, Desca is going to take another few months even if I work 24/7 on it. I don't want to wait that long... let's face it, publishing work is fun, right?

I want to add shadows to the characters and stuff, but it's already taking an over-amount of time, but then again quality-over-quantity... who knows what I'll end up doing.

And to be honest I guess this is my best animation in a cartoon so far, but realistically I kinda doubt it will really do any good, but again, we'll see...

Oh by the way, Mr. Tom Flups, it's not going to have any references or memes in it, so I'm going to assume you're not going to get it front-paged when it comes out... just kidding.

But seriously it's not going to have any references or memes. I'm really just done with those... I can't stand seeing them in cartoons anymore, it's just an easy pass to the views and ad revenue.

ANYWAY, I am done with this post, I think.

StarNova...

This is my favorite holiday. I don't know what it is, I guess it's simply because it's so simple and nothing too special really ever happens, but there's just this strange aura in the air...

Anyway... what's going on, well, chapter I of Desca is coming along, all of the actors' voices are completed and ready. I think the animation's alright, and I'm experimenting with new effects. I have the entire story outlined, so if it does okay I have an actual plan set up for the rest of the future chapters, rather than just making it up as I go along... if you don't know what Desca is, well, it's basically an animation series I'm working on, which has to do with the future and soldiers and aliens and blablabdksgjskjgsgj.

Also I've been working on a game for a while, but it's getting progress VERY slowly, because I've been so freakin' busy lately I literally don't have enough time in the day to do everything I'd normally like to. BUT hey... it's St. Patrick's Day... and St. Patrick's Day is awesome.

St. Patrick's Day Updates

Hello, it's Twisted4000 once again, well for some reasons and things I don't feel like going into right now, I needed to make a new YouTube channel. Previously, my channel was "Twisted4000", but now, if you are subscribed or planned on subscribing... it's "Twisted4kStudios". Click http://youtube.com/user/twisted4kstudios to go to the channel.

In other news, working on the new series, Desca. It's going alright, practically all the voices are in now (just missing one more person, RICEPIRATE!!). But yeah. I have other short animations planned as well, but it'll be a while before I can start on those, to be honest.

Take care.

Alright, so here's what's gonna happen soon... if you recognize me at all, it's most likely just from the Generic Skyrim Movie cartoon I made. But the point is, for over three weeks now, I've been making an animation short, but it's stupidly taking much longer than it should. It's called You're Firing Me!?. Here's the preview for it:

Yeah.

But in other news, there's a series I will start soon called "Desca", which basically has to do with the future and planets and aliens and whatever. Got pretty much all the voice actors for it (obviously RicePirate is one of them), and hopefully it will turn out good. I won't make myself deadlines like once a month or anything so I won't need to rush to make worse quality episodes, because, honestly, what would be the point of that? I'll do my best to make them... respectable, at least.

But yeah, gonna put lotsa effort into them. Of course, I'll only continue based on the reaction of the first chapter (it's gonna be like 10 chapters total, the outline of the whole story is pretty much done). I just want to go for something more serious, I've made nothing but comedies for years, and now I'll try to bring in something new into the internet world (because, let's face it, there aren't a huge amount of serious Flash cartoons out there... not saying it's a bad thing, but I just want to freshen things up).

Have a wonderful day.

So I released a trailer for the new cartoon I'm making, "You're Firing Me!?".

That is all for now.


Posted by Twisted4000 - January 16th, 2012


Figured I'd do a post on this since it finally got taken off the front page...

As this is being typed, Generic Skyrim Movie has garnished over 65,000 views, the Daily Feature Award and 11th place of the week for 1/11/12, a score of 4.14, and around than 380 favorites. That's, so far, my record. Yes, the animation wasn't the best, but I didn't put as much effort into that one compared to some of my other movies because, when I DID put over a month of work into a cartoon to get some fluid animation, they still didn't get much recognition. So quit complaining, to those of you who are. To those of you who aren't, thanks.

Now, the future... well, there's still that game I'm making, but I'd expect it to be released sometime this mid-Summer or so, since it's one of my lower priorities at this point in time. For future cartoons, I have about 3-4 things planned, but I think I've decided on what I want to do, and I'm writing the script for it right now, as a matter of fact. Yes, I'll put a LOT more time into the animation and try to get the outlines for the characters very thin and clean.

Take care.

Edit: Oh yeah, I'm also helping DingoWalleyStudio with his "Candle Cove" series with some animation. Also I get to do a little voice, woohoo!

I finished the Skyrim parody I've been working on. You may watch it if you want.

My latest and not-so-greatest cartoon, "Generic Skyrim Movie", is in production. It's been so for about a week now, and I'm roughly 55% complete. You may watch the trailer below if you'd like.

If you watched the trailer, you may now know there's another character in it other than the Dovahkin and another Skyrim-related character, just so I don't piss everyone off TOO much... I wanted to do something different... I also hope to get some recognition with this cartoon when it's released... it should be completed in less than another week, I suppose.

Call it gimmicky... but that's because it is.

Take care.
