Hey hey everyone! This news post has been a bit delayed, but I wanted to wait until all the necessary pieces were done to make it. Work's been keeping me quite busy, but hey better late than never right?
As you no doubt were aware (one less than the other) two major things recently came out! And their releases were so close to each other which is kind of crazy to think about.
But one was the Ultimate Showdown Redux Collaboration!
I was lucky enough to get a spot and make something for it, even though it was very short I made the most of it by jam-packing it with as many characters and references as I could.
I even made a video which covered all of them! Sort of made it a challenge to pick and guess who each character was, so if you don't want to be spoiled I suggest you have a look for yourself and see if you can guess them correctly before watching!
And secondly the other big thing that came out, this was the big enchilada and the one that everyone had been asking for. Persona 4 The Animated Comic Dub Part 3!
The last part for this came out around four years ago, lots of people thought that I had just given up, but nope! Still going strong!
Both parts 1 and 2 were being made when I didn't have a job so I was able to work on them every day, though even I had lots of time to work on them they still took a year each to make. Part 3 was made with having employment, so I was only able to work on it on the weekends which significantly slowed down progress. But hey, here it is, finally done!
Can't say when Part 4 will be done, hopefully I'll be able to get some extra help on it or something like that to speed up the process, but stay tuned for more news about that in the future!
And that's all I had to cover! Since I won't be making any posts about it, now's my chance to wish you all a happy Christmas and a swell New Year!
Until next time! Catch you on the flip!

Hey everyone, been a while since I did a real news update here at NG, thought it was about time.
First of all I want to say thank you all very much for 1000 followers. It's not so much in comparison to some other users on here. But hey if anyone at all likes my work enough to desire to see more, that just means the world to me. So thank you very much.
In terms of cartoons i've been working on, been putting all my artistic efforts into Persona 4 The Animated Comic Dub Part 3. I published both Parts 1 and 2 a while back, if you haven't checked them out I highly advise it.
The third part has been in the works for some time now, it's slowly chugging along, but I did post a showcase of everything that I had made so far at the end of 2020. You can check that out here.
In terms of other projects I may as well plug The Neverhood Reanimated, a reanimated collab that I am hosting. Essentially taking the cutscenes from the 1996 PC game and reinterpreting as each artist sees fit.
This project is constantly needing new talent, so if you wish to participate feel free to sign up. All you need to show is a showreel or some work that shows that you have a basic understanding of animation and you're in!
And with that, that's essentially what's been going on with me. Still keeping at it and I will be doing so for a long time to come. Even though my creative output isn't as frequent at it once was, getting older and finding less and less free time to myself, though regardless i'll always be using whatever time I can to be artistic to my greatest ability and more! Always trying to improve my art however I can.
As a final thought, treat yourself, you deserve it.

Announcing my first reanimated collab! Remaking the cut scenes from The Neverhood 1996 PC game.
Whether it be 2D, 3D, claymation or anything inbetween you're more than welcome to join!
No gore, nudity or adult themes. We want to have this viewable by everyone.
Aside from that, feel free to be as creative as you like!
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, send an email to email@example.com with a demo reel or the best example of your work, and if you're successful i'll send you a part so you can get started!
Make sure to include which name you'd like to be credited as, otherwise i'll use the name that's associated with your email. Your Newgrounds username so I can credit your account here once submitted. And if you happen to no longer want to work on a part, tell me as soon as possible so I can trade it off to someone else.
You can tweet any kind of work in progress or completed pieces to @neverhoodreani to spread your work around with others.
Upon completing your part, if you'd like to work on another don't hesitate to ask! Some parts are certainly shorter than others so if you don't feel that you've put in enough effort I can certainly assign you another if you so desire. I have over 200 parts ready to send out, so there's plenty to go around.
And that's it! Good luck and hope to see you there!

I did a new cartoon.
With this I was playing around with traditional cartoon elements. Rather than sketching the keyframes, cleaning them up and then inbetweening, with a lot of this I sketched all the keyframes and the inbetweens then cleaned them up afterwards. Which took way longer than I expected it would, probably be going back to the old formula, but it was fun to try.
It's real short, so won't be taking up much of your time if you'd like to check it out.
Or not, whatever man.

Started work on this about a week ago. Second part of the animated version of Hiimdaisy's Persona 4 comic dub.
The audio is 5 minutes and 20 seconds long, split it into 19 parts, can go about animating those in whatever order I like.
Probably won't be done until sometime in 2017, be cool if it was released in conjunction with Persona 5's overseas release, but it's really unknown at this point.
Follow my Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr if you want future updates on this. I'm always posting little tidbits about whatever i'm working on.
