So, I haven't posted in a realllly long time.. but that's because I've been hard at work trying to finish my previous projects. I started using maya and learning 3d and I'm almost done with my first animation, which is the newest episode of my series Little Big Apocalypse. There is a big chance I will stick to mostly 3d animations from now on, so the next episode of Reboot might be in 3d, and to be honest would probably be better because of it. Here are some images from my first 3d episode of Little Big Apocalypse.

Ok I think that's enough screenshots for now. This will be my first 3d animation, wish me luck :P If you also make 3d animations leave a comment or a link or something, I'm just getting into this so any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Posted some new Little Big Apocalypse art today, make sure you check it out. It's the cover for the second volume of my comic, Little Big Apocalypse, I've been working on Reboot 13 and Little Big Apocalypse 3. I also have a new camera, a black magic design camera, that I've been filming with. I'm going to start filming scenes for Reboot 13.

Check out my new art!


Finally finished the 10th chapter of my comic

Just finished and uploaded Chapter 10 of my comic, Little Big Apocalypse to both littlebigapocalypse.com and mangafox. This also means that if you own a tablet or smartphone, and you own a manga app, you can download the newest chapter by just searching Little Big Apocalypse.

Chapter 10 ends the first volume of the comic, which all-together, is about 150-180 pages. It ends on a cliffhanger, so now I can finally take a break from comics for a while and finish up my long-due animations.

First up is Little Big Apocalypse 3, which is nearly complete, and then my magnum opus, Reboot 13. I'm actually waiting until I buy a new camera to finish it, because I'm going to be filming scenes.

Little Big Apocalypse and Reboot/Damaged Bads are connected, so even if the comic might seem a little slow, it's very deliberate... and will all be very fulfilling when the connection between the two is more clear.

Oh and... HAPPY MADNESS DAY :O

Finally finished the 10th chapter of my comic



After way too long, I've finished Chapter 9 of Little Big Apocalypse... and wow, did I spend way too long on it :3 . I'm starting to realize this whole comic was a bad idea! (not really) It's taken up too much time for sure, comics are a lot of ****ing work, well, at least when it's all a 1-person job. All that said, doing the comic gave me so much experience drawing that I have a feeling my animations will be much better when I finally get around to finishing them. I've got some cool things in the pipeline, i'm just waiting to get a new camera so I can shoot some scenes for Reboot 13 (the last episode). It's been a long time coming, but my ideas/concepts for Reboot 13 will really blow people away, lets hope I can pull it off.

New Art, New Comic Chapter + Animations



I haven't posted in a while, been busy! I won't get into it but I have embarked on AN EPIC JOURNEY OF ART!!!!

I'll be releasing an animation, LIttle Big Apocalypse 3, and 2 chapters of the Little Big Apocalypse comic, which is actually fairly long at this point (8 chapters). I'll be working on Reboot 13 next, which will be the final episode. I've already finished a fair amount of it, but I'm excited to do more because I've been taking some art courses and I think I'm finally ready to make my master epic :P

In the meantime, know a 10 min animation is coming in the next few months, and in the next month, both new chapters of Little big Apocalypse (chapter 9/10). Things start to get really strange in Little Big Apocalypse and I think fans of Reboot, and also fans of comics in general should stay tuned, some really crazy, not-done-before stuff is coming :P

Releasing animation + 2 comics soon :O


New Chapter of my Webtoon - Little Big Apocalypse

Updated

Haven't been on Newgrounds much since the update, I started a new job and have been working my butt off. Luckily, in my free time, I've been able to work on my comic. Here's the newest chapter. It's 12,FULL-COLOR, HUGE, VERTICAL pages. I'm still improving but I think this chapter shows a significant leap in quality and a lot more color. For anyone curious what the series is about:

Little Big Apocalypse is about a stuffed animal that wakes up after the world ends. With little idea of what came before him, he ventures out into the wasteland. After many lonely years of wandering, one day he discovers a building. Inside, he comes face-to-face with "The Eyes", a computer A.I program. The Eyes tell Sackboy they are dying and without his help they will soon pass away. Sackboy agrees to help them, but it's not the fun adventure he had expected...

My Reel

I put this REEL together recently, although I'm still thinking of making a few changes, probably have to shorten it. I haven't done a reel in a while, so I'm feeling a little relieved to have all my work up to date. The last few days, I've been alternating between editing and playing Rayman Origins... which is probably one of the best looking games I've ever played.

The art style of the game actually reminds me of a few people on Newgrounds. The music is also insanely good, and makes it really exciting and fun to play. I snagged it for only $15, which I almost feel bad about, since after playing you can tell how much effor the developers put in.

Go buy Rayman Origins... then check out my reel:


Space Channel 5, Power Stone, Jet Set Radio and THE END

As I've been animating the final episode of my cartoon Reboot I've been cracking open the Dreamcast library and playing some of my old favorite games. There seems to be a lot of nostalgia surrounding the Dreamcast, and for good reason, Sega really took chances with art and gameplay back then, something Nintendo should try these days..

To be honest, I think the videogame industry, or at least the console/PC industry is in a bit of a funk. It seems like the only people taking chances are indie devs, all the commercial games are sequels. During the Dreamcast's release, Sega really gave it all they had to try to make the console a success. Those games could still be highly profitable I think, as the people that played them enter their early 20's and start to get all nostalgic and contemplative about death :O

The art style of Jet Set Radio looks great even today, it was a bit like WindWaker in that the art trumps the technical limitations. I feel the same way about Power Stone too, probably my favorite fighting game of all time besides smash. It's a real shame Capcom just sort of gave up on this IP, a Power Stone with updated graphics would sell very well.

Since Space Channel 5 is a big part of Reboot 13 (the last episode, ahem), I've kind of been studying it. I'm also motion-capturing some of it, so Ulala can use some of her dance moves from the games in the episode. I think I'll leave it at that, since I don't want to spoil anymore.

Epic last episode coming in the next 3-4 months... pretty much looking to break every taboo in the episode as well. It's the only true way to send the series off.. a fun, nearly illegal, chaotic... orgy of violence :D

Working on a New Horror Comic

Well the redesign is awesome! I think it looks exactly how Newgrounds should... an explosion of creativity. Don't get me wrong, there are a few things I think need tweaking, namely the frontpage descriptions.. but apparently that's already in the works.. so no worries there.

Because my brain is constantly spasming with weird new ideas, I wrote a new horror comic, 30 pages are done, now I have to finish the other 30. It's horror.. and it's pretty strange... and bloody :) It was inspiried by my many trips to the dentist to deal with my wisdom teeth... it was really pretty nightmarish.. and painful... and the drugs given to you to numb the pain really make it feel like a bad dream. Very inspiring though :D

I took a little break from my other comic, Little Big Apocalypse because coloring it in is getting really exhausting. The pages I have actually colored in look great, it's just so time-consuming. When I was recovering from getting my wisdom teeth removed (all 4) I couldn't sit that long and paced around because they hurt. It made it so I couldn't really sit down at the computer and concentrate... I could sort of lay down and sketch though.. and so that's when I started working on this new comic.

Have about 4 projects going on at once. Teeth is sort of a one-shot so it's not a series and it will just be DONE with it's finished, unlike my other ongoing animation projects. I'm working on Reboot 13, Little Big Apocalypse 3, Little Big Apocalypse 8 (comic) and Teeth(comic). Good stuff.. now to find a better job -_-
