I'm back on newgrounds, doubt anyone missed me ;-; but anyways I just wanna let everyone know that I am going to pursue my dreams in music and not animating, I realized that it isn't for me, mainly because I procrastinate a lot, and music isn't something I'll procrastinate it's something I'll take seriously.
NOTE : I'll probably be on and off of newgrounds, so I won't constantly be on here everyday but atleast try to be on every month or so
Im feeling WAY much better than before, I wanna start drawing and creating music again sadly, I don't have ANY time for those things I'll be on-and-off NG, CWS is still alive (Hopefully)
WATCH THE ROAD MOTHERFUCKA! -Ryder
Besides that, I don't know what the fucks going on in the Madness community ;c
Update 420 and a box of number 9s: I have became more interested in GTA V than I don't know fuckin' what ( I mean grinding for money like its going out of fucking style) kek.
Update 136: I have no life, I am not even going to try animating again I have lost interest in this, but then too I am a lazy sack of shit, so you never know neither do I honestly.. I just hope I can get back to being productive probably... I don't know I just feel like I'm on a roller coaster with my life basically.
Has been a REALLY shitty month for me (which is ironically funny cause my birthday is during this month which is also on Christmas) First off, I was rushed to the ER for a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes which basically means my pancreas pretty much died and I'm insulin-dependent the rest of my life honestly, it's not confirmed but for the time being I'm a T1 Diabetic (I hate life sometimes) Second, I've been lazy and unable to do anything for this month (got out the hospital last week but relaxing because doctors said I can't stress on anything) and Finally, I don't feel motivated at all. Anyways, I hope your doing better than how I am. Merry Xmas 16' and Happy New Year.
I eh, posted some new art besides that I wanna welcome @Wkay to Crystal Wolf Studios he's like our, uh comicist... and also animator! Besides that nothing new. @spotsxd @ATP505 @DaskerKS @Dankon @iCreeper
Well, non-productive procrastinating me decided to do nothing I probably won't even be able to submit some art cause I won't have anytime to, I'm sure @spotsxd, @ATP505, @DaskerKS, @iCreeper and @Dankon have something you might like, besides that I've been lazy as always. Productive-ness amped up next month? Answer: probably not sadly. Anyways Happy Madness Day! (I'm still waiting for Madness Combat 11 Krinkels,) (At the time of writing this I realize I'm a day early celebrating, oh for Jebus sake.)
Hey everyone! been long time since my last post, mainly cause I'm enjoying the summer while it lasts, don't worry! I'm gonna be active again... Hopefully time to put dedication to animating. art, lyrics, and music producing! Hope you all seen the collab by @DaskerKS I was gonna be in it but I bailed at the last minute for obvious reasons (Enjoying summer break, 4th Of July, etc) honestly if any of you thought I was gonna quit forever and try to leave newgrounds like nothing happened, don't worry I'm here again in 101% Productivity.
What's new LuWolf?! Making random art and mor things coming your way :D
Hey everyone! Hope your doing fine, yesterday and today I had a little interview with @Cethic I really enjoyed interviewing him cause he gave long, and straight-forward information and in all it was just a great interview! Thanks Ceth!
Q:Where do you get your inspiration to make art from?
A:"When I was really little, I used to watch Sonic X on Jetex. So I started drawing sonic characters, and that evolved into Star Wars and I just kept drawing, I think I was about 7 or 8 years old when I started"
Q:What made you create the name "Cethic"?
A:"I became really fond of the name Seth. I used to go to a Christian school called the "Day School" where I met my friend Jasper Rector. He had a Gameboy, and played Pokémon. His characters name was Seth. Moving on a few years later, I'm playing a game called WolfTeam with my friends Tacoma and Colton at the public library. One of the guys we ran into there was named Sethic. I took a liking to it, and since my name started with a C I just modified it to be Cethic while still sounding like Sethic."
Q:How did you find out about Madness Combat?
A:"When I was younger as well, I played games on the elementary school computers. There I found Thing Thing and Madness interactive. Doing more searches for Madness related stuff ended up getting me into the movies."
Q:Who or What drove you to create fan-animations/tributes to Madness Combat?
A:"Most of the stuff happened when I was younger. I used to play around in the Madness Scene Creator games, moving parts around and using my imagination to create stories. Eventually around 14 or 15 I ended up getting a copy of flash, because an old friend of mine who goes by the name of Macaronisasofa lent me his when I asked. After that I started watching tutorials on how to animate madness, and things sorta lifted off from there."
Q:Have you told anyone else that you do this for a living?
A:"I don't do it for a living, I don't make ANY revenue off of my animations actually. Most of my artistic related income comes from doing commissions and the rest comes from my factory job. My parents and friends full well about my flash cartoons though, and are always excited to see what I do next."
Q:Do you think that you'll ever get tired of animating madness one day?
A:"Nah. I thought I had for a while but I think I just burned myself out on it after animating it for 4 years straight. As long as it's not the entirety of my main focus, I can probably keep it up for as long as I want."
Q:How did you come up with your characters design? And does it represent you in any way?
A:"Originally my character was meant to represent me, and at one point I even had proper attire to do a cosplay of his old design. Shades,headphones,the hoodie, all of it. Only thing I didn't have was red hair haha. As time moved on though, he stopped representing and became his own character. Beyond the animations, he does have a personality and relationships he maintains. One of which is actually with another madness character a friend of mine created, her name is Pashmina or Pash for short. The most current design stage for him was sorta strewn together randomly. I didn't sketch out ideas, I just sorta drew it. I remember I drew the right side view of the sprites first, and they were originally only red. Then I was like, what if I added some white here and here? So, I gave him a white highlight in his hair and added white tips to his hoodie and shazam, he was made."
Q:How do you feel for having a 650+ fan base?
A:"It's pretty crazy, to me, actually! I never thought I'd get anywhere close to having as many fans as I do, especially considering I don't put out madness movies very often. I'm really thankful though, it's a huge part in keeping me motivated to do what I do."
Q:What do you think you would be doing if you wouldn't have discovered Madness Combat?
A:"Probably everything I do now, except Madness Combat. It didn't really branch out and connect anything else I do, other than animation. But I had really been pushed to want to animate because of Eddsworld, so I guess I might have been doing some sort of flash series mimicking the Eddsworld style of cartoon."
Q:You've mentioned that you started animating at 14-15 did you ever get in trouble for animating Madness Combat?
A:"Nope, Not at all."
Q:Do you personally enjoy animating Madness? Or is it more of a hassle for you?
A:"It's a personal thing, I enjoy animating it but there are times where it feels like a hassle. If I ever feel like that, I take a break."
Q:Does your actual life interfere with your animating life?
A:"Not really, no."
Q:Do you have any advice for aspiring animators?
A:"Practice makes perfect."
Thank you so much @Cethic for taking time of your day to respond to my questions.
I have done my first test (http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/a804e5848fab20754987c69c8ac22e11), I'm digitalizing my comic (the paper one looked horrible but I will post that later) I want to take time to welcome spotsxd into my group he is a new member! Speaking of that me and Dasker will be hosting a tournament for another member with @Atp505 and @spotsxd judging the contestants. if I have anything else to update you guys on I will, but later :3.
Update 1: you guys know I said a tournament right? Well I've decided to cancel it and just continue with the stuff that's normal, @Normalium is now in the group and my group is closed.
I have little time this week for the Madness collab that Dasker_KS is hosting but I will have most of my time doing my animations (Hopefully :P) I'm not expecting my parts to be great (It is a test collab after all) I have two parts planned for it.
On the brighter side, I should have my art that I have been delaying for the past week posted by Friday or Saturday, I'll probably have more music next week, gonna try to make a personalized sprite sheet, and thats all so far.
I recently said that I created two art pieces (Don't worry they'll be uploaded in a while) one of them was a comic...YES A COMIC! it was a totally original concept that I thought of. I'll tell you guys behind the story why I thought of it, I recently heard that Dr. Pepper was going to go out of buisness and were going to close down the factories during the summer so before they shut down I wanted to make a comic out of that situation but anyways
Mi groupo es terminado (My group is finished) but there's one more spot that is empty that will probably be empty for a day or so.. but I've came up with a few designs that I'll post later...
EDIT 1:I recently got audio portal-scouted which I'm glad and a little shout out to @Mynok now all I need is a art-portal-scout.
EDIT 2:I'll probably have two parts for the collab I'm in done by Sunday (Hopefully :P)
