LIVE A LITTLE!!

I'm staring at this Sengoku Basara ad on frontpage of Newgrounds and it makes me want to puke. When is anybody going to embrace that we have graphics good enough to make characters look like they GIVE A SHIT?

These bland, safe character designs are why there are no new interesting characters anymore. Sure, you've got cool clothes, but where's the CHARACTER, where's the PERSONALITY?

Game designers (wrongfully) care so much about story, well what's a story without likable characters? And how can I like a character when he's like this :-| all the fucking TIME. You even fuck THAT up. What hope do we have for ANYTHING anymore?

STOP DOING THIS. And stop, for the love of god, being INSPIRED BY THIS.

By the way Sengoku Basara is totally fun you should play it ehehehehe sorry tom

LIVE A LITTLE!!



Sup yo, made a new Awesome Cartoon.

WATCH IT NOW!!

This one's about Transformers: War for Cybertron. It was a simple little gag I did when I wasn't animating commission work for other stuff that takes up all my time. I wanted to stay loose and do something funny for Newgrounds... it made me laugh and I hope it makes you laugh too!

I have a couple more ideas for other cartoons to make, like Mass Effect and Dante's Inferno. I also have PLENTY of various comedy sketches to animatize and also to LIVE ACTION-IZE. I'll be buying a camera soon so I can film some funny live action shit. Hopefully I won't suck balls at it. I mean, I don't think Youtube allows that kind of stuff.

ANYWAY HOPE YOU LIIIKE <3

Transformers WAR FOR AWESOMETRON


UPDATE.

Man whatever.

Anyway hey guys I'm animating this like load of shit for an Xbox Indie Game/PC game including cutscenes and graphics. It's called Unstoppable and it's made by JForceGames so that's been keeping me busy. Sorry I've been slow on the comedy in Newgrounds front but I've been really busy not freaking out about eating and paying rent!!!!

It's okay I'm working on like this Transformers flash and I hope you like it. It's about War for Cybertron I think I'm gunna call it WAR FOR AWESOMETRONLOL I don't have much time to do other projects but I wanted to squeeze something in. I don't wanna stab myself in the face AGAIN like I ALWAYS do about release dates but it should be done soon and then I wanna start on something else about Mass Effectright away after that. Yeah and Girlchan 4 too don't worry I'm not, like, over Girlchan or anything. We actually just brainstormed some really great ideas for Girlchan last night that really cracked us up.

I've been having a great time designing games and writing stories lately I really can't wait until this one story in particular is fleshed out enough to start animating the first episode. It'll be really fun and I hope it catches some eyes. I don't expect anybody to really be up for an action/drama/comedy about three girls in the desert from me. SOUNDS FUN RIGHT?! Regardless it's one of those greedy projects that I wanna make, you know, regardless of who wants to see it or whatever. Something for me.

So as usual I have way too much ahead of me that one guy should never be able to juggle but somehow I'll manage and end up making cool shit as a result THE END

<3 you guys

GIRLCHAN CONTEST NOW OVER!

2010-05-29 17:22:32 by Egoraptor

The Girlchan Character Creation contest will no longer be accepting entries, it is now officially over!

Thank you everyone who's entered, all of the entries have been really amazing, and the turnout was so unbelievably overwhelming!

Tomamoto and I have been updating Girlchan.com periodically to include all of the entries. Right now we're not even CLOSE to having them all posted, but it's still a great way to view entries without having to click through a bunch of links. We'll have all of them up soon now that we finally aren't accepting anymore submissions. So go check them out, leave your opinions, and have a blast over at Girlchan.com!

We're still deciding how to handle picking a winner, but right now I'm leaning toward not revealing it until the next Girlchan is released. We'll keep you updated on what's what, and we'll certainly keep Girlchan.com up to date as well!

In the meanwhile, as I work on the million projects I'm always working on, I've decided to loosen up by accepting 5$ doodle commissions here at Fiverr:

I will doodle something for you for 5$!!

The prize for runners up of the competition is a drawing of your character, but if you can't wait, I'll doodle them up in Girlchan style for a measly 5 bucks! Or you could ask for something completely random, I'll draw you, or your girlfriend, or your character... whatever!

Thanks again to everyone who entered, and good luck!!


LAST DAY FOR GIRLCHAN CONTEST

2010-05-28 15:05:41 by Egoraptor

Today is the FINAL DAY for the Girlchan Character Creation Contest. If you haven't entered, DO IT NOW!

I will close the contest at 4:00am Pacific Standard Time, 7:00am Eastern Standard Time. That will be the point where the whole entire world will officially be May 29th. I'll post a comment in the entry thread, and any comments past that will be LATE and thus forth INELIGIBLE.

All day I will be updating Girlchan.com to include all the eligible entries. Today is also the day to DELETE YOUR DESCRIPTIONS if you wrote one. Remember, it's ineligible only if you describe the character and his/her relationship with the existing girlchan character. If you describe how you drew it or whatever, that's fine.

THANKS EVERYONE! <3<3<3

Girlchan Character Creation Contest EXTENDED!


Contest extension!

2010-05-15 01:43:42 by Egoraptor

Hey! Just a quick update for those interested and keeping track. I am extending the Create Your Own Girlchan Contest for another two weeks! I will make a more formal announcement within the next 24 hours!


Girlchan Character Creation Contest STILL GOING STRONG!

Hey Guys!!

The Create Your Own Girlchan Character contest is going GREAT! There have been a lot of fun and hilarious submissions to the contest and we still have a little over a week left! If you didn't catch the contest, click here!!

If you don't know about this contest, I'm running a contest where you can design your own Girlchan character to be included in a future Girlchan episode!

A NOTE TO ALL ENTRIES I want to be clear though, as I've said,if a submission has a textual description, IT WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. This rule is has two purposes. The first is because it challenges you all to describe something in picture format only, which is hard but also a lot of fun to do. The second is because the universal joke about Girlchan is that it's supposed to be a translation of a Japanese show, so the information that is lost or added in translation from contest entry to final product (into the show) is half the fun. Maybe I will choose your submission for a completely different reason than you intended, who knows? That's the fun!! If you submitted something already with a textual description, please delete it!! It to be entered into the running when judging happens at the end of the contest!

So go check out all of the current entries, and read how to enter in my previous blog post here!! Good luck!

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER IN THIS THREAD. READ THE RULES AND ENTER IN THE ORIGINAL THREAD FOUND BY CLICKING THIS LINK.

CONTEST IS NOW OVER. VISIT GIRLCHAN.COM TO VIEW ENTRIES!

Sup guys!

Girlchan 3 has been a great success and it's incredible to see all of the fan support for the series! All the fanart is amazing and there have even been fan animations about the series!

.
/* */
So now I've got Girlchan fever. To celebrate the following announcement:

GIRLCHAN 4 IS COMING NEXT!!

I wanted to start a little contest.

How would you like your character to appear in Girlchan? Would you? I would love your character to. So here's the deal: Draw your character interacting with a pre-existing Girlchan character. Your picture MUST imply some kind of relationship/past/connection to the existing character, and the picture MUST explain it ON ITS OWN. No textual descriptions or your picture will be disqualified.

That's the deal. This isn't a drawing contest, and by that I mean the most pretty drawing is not necessarily the winner. I'm judging based on how I like the character and I like the interaction. I will use this for an upcoming episode of Girlchan and it will be funny.

To enter, submit your drawing to the Newgrounds Art Portal and link to it IN THIS THREAD. I do NOT want submissions sent to my PM box. Deadline is May 14th.

Good luck everyone :)

EDIT:

I have EXTENDED the Girlchan Character Creation Contest another 2 weeks. The official deadline is now MAY 28TH.

I have also added the chance to become a runner up, winning a drawing of your character by me. :)

Continue to post your entries here. I need to be clearer to entrants though:

NO DESCRIPTIONS OF THE CHARACTER. SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY TO THE ART PORTAL ONLY. I'm letting the Newgrounds Dumping Ground submissions slide. If you are an entrant who has put a description in your entry, please delete it before the deadline if you want it counted. Then PLEASE repost it, saying you've updated it. Thank you guys!

Create your own Girlchan character contest!!
