I haven´t been as active a member of Newgrounds as I used to be, but i am still drawing a lot and i might jump back into the flash scene once i´m done with college.
I recently created a facebook page for my illustrations! Go and check it out! like it and tell a friend! cause it helps me a LOT.
this is for lalos birthday so pleeeeease just vote 5 this time around. its in spanish so must people wont even understand what the fuck is going on. but if you like the animation thats cool too right? just let me keep this on the site.
after a prolongued absence of ng in my life i came back today after hearing about Edd Gould and reading about it all on facebook.... r.i.p. edd
Coming back to Ng for a few minutes led me to opening a 10 day old PM from an old friend. and i think what i wrote was very.... i dont know. i just wanted to share it with you,
my response (slightly edited to remove names/locations/personal details:
Maaaaaan i havent been to this site for so long, its been really weird. as i write this email to you i feel like im in an elderly asylum reunion where im finding out what everyone i knew has been doing with their lives.
in fact, if you can believe this, i juust found out randy solem, one of the first sprite animators DIED about a week ago, it bums me out because without him i probably wouldnt have gotten into this in the first place, and i never would have met you! or talked to tons of other awesome people. without randy solem, i think my life would be really different today.
i also found out earlier today that eddsworld passed away. i dont know the details of his death but while i was not a big fan of his cartoons nor met him personally, it bums me the fuck out to learn that a good guy like that had to leave... :(
its strange and sad and in a way it feels like feeling a family member, when you spend so much time with these folks constructing the spirit of a site or organization, when they are no longer around you TRULY realize what a great guy we all lost.
Its fuckin weird man. its so weird.... how much this site has changed who I am. even if ity sounds very stupid hahaha
its true you know. even if i keep it inside.
Maaaan, im just glad to hear youre doin fine. are you done with --------------------? i think the last time i talked with you was about 2 years ago. i remember well.
sooo much shit has happened since then, ive met a lot of newgrounds people, some of which we have actually made cartoons with (-----------).
im so sorry for my late response, i really dont come here that often these days, but keep lookin! you might find something new by me next summer. when i release my new cartoon i hope that will also get me more involved in the coimmunity again.
anyway i was really happy to recieve this message from you and i hope we talk more often and hopefully crate something again in the future. be well man!
-C. O a.k.a Eman
yeah this one is all about fucking. basically.
and about music too! but mostly fucking.
im just working on the animatic but im very certain ill be able to finish it faster than most stuff ive made.
ALSO im looking for someone who can help me out with it too! send me a pm for more details about this very vague idea.
2011.... this year got me really worried about the sanity of people in goverment, and overall sanity of people both in Mexico and in the U.S. Theres something wrong about the way politics are conducted in this system. And i think its because there is a flaw in democracy. Something about elections in both of these countries (both of which i hope the best for) troubles me because i do believe everyone should have a say in how a country is run, but at the same time you cant have democracy in a society where media manipulation clashes with insincere values and ignorance. I think the flaw with democracy is that it assumes that if all votes are equal, then ALL votes will come come from people who are equally as intellectual/informed. But a vote from someone who can be more easily manipulated can equalize the vote of a legit, informed vote.
In my experience, education provided by the goverment is dangeous becuase it doesnt teach you how to be skeptical. And it is so damn dangerous when something like this occurs and the future these countries is in jeopardy.
Remember friends, Ignorance is NEVER bliss. and the enemy of my enemy is not my friend.
If you think american politics are totally out to lunch you should see the guy who will probably win for president of Mexico...
im trying to create the habit to update my account on this site ocassionally. wether it is with news, art, or other shit.
for now, all I have is this
i might upload some more shit soon tho... but for now plz enjoy and vote 5!
also those of you who STILL play tf2, feel free to add me on steam so we can kick some ass together. its emanhattan (obviously). just leave a note over here so i know thats you.
man i spend waaaay too much time playing tf2
i dont have much to show you this time except some relatively recent drawings. I havent been able to work on flash for some time now because in short during most the year so far i havent had access to a decent computer that would let me work in flash without making the process slow and tedious. Aditionally, i cant log in to NG from school so i didnt really have the drive to keep posted.
This new comp im using right now is quite the badass. ill try to get back on the flash making aspect of the community as time goes on.
anyway i have a few arts
thats about all ive got for you tonight
btw check out this nic shit
How yall been?
Its been some pretty slow months for me. School is extremely demanding and I dont really have the time to finish any flash projects. Altough I feel ive improved a lot, wich im glad about.
I have a lot of ideas that Id like to work on but some of them consume enough time for me to lose my momentum and not want to work. Aditionally, my computer has become consistenly shittier over the course of these 5 months. Its got a really bad bump next to the screen that makes it clank whenever I close it (were talking about a laptop here), and about 75% of its memory is full of shit I probably wont ever again use.
Do you guys consider a 2006 dell laptop with windows xp too archaic by now?
On the other hand, I think im happier around here than Ive ever been. I dont know if I posted about this before but during my 2 first months living in washington I got to live with a creep/packrat/conspiracy theorist and essentially my life has become consistently better ever since I left that place. My new roomies are really chill.
ALSO in a totally unnecessary announcement, a week ago I played Zelda: Wind waker for the firts time, and I plan to beat it TONIGHT heh
So, there you have it. I hope I can come up with a quick spring break short and animate it for you guys. if theres any cool collabs around I might jump in just to get my flash instincts back in action.
And now a picture of my dog laika that I took 5 years ago
These vacations have been really good for me. Got to sell some arts, hang out with buddies and got to see my family. Aditionally, ive been drawing a lot and WRITING a lot wich is weird because I think im really bad at making up a story, characters, and whatnot.
Recently I had this idea for a cartoon that I think a lot of people could enjoy. It is a Cyberpunk-Noir inspired story about 2 guys who are paranormal investigators, and live in a city where it is always nighttime. Aditionally, they live together in an abandoned, haunted appartment. They are Pox & Floo, who are almost never working, and actually spend more time doing acts of vandalism than fighting the many paranormal phenomena that ocurrs in the city.
Pox secretly escaped from the mental assylum. He got in there in the first place because he likes to start fires and has commited acts of cannibalism. He does not like relationships of any kind and mistreats his best friend, Floo. He is always provoking people, but always manages to annoy them without getting his ass kicked. He is also the love interest of a fat valkyrie that lives in town.
Floo is his sidekick, he thinks Pox is the coolest person around and will always assist him in anything, even if such activity involves hurting himself, or other people. Floo is not aware of Pox´s malice and thinks that they are just playing a game, even when they are commiting acts of crime together.
There is no police in the city, so they never get busted.
Originally I wanted to make a comic out of this premise but I think animation suits the humor style of the story more. What I want is to make a cartoon in wich all of the characters are horrible, but people keep identifying themselves with them.
I will now proceed to eat delicios spagetthiez
P.S. i went to see megamind 2 days ago it was ok 7/10
