Update! (and Demo Reel)

2017-06-28 18:25:18 by RyanStorm

This has sorta been a long time coming, because I've become sort of in-active in making personal stuff, especially here on NG. So I was hoping to quickly fill in the gaps and field any questions.

First of all, Anime Amigos, if anyones curious about the progress of that I honestly can't say for certain what my plan is for the 4th installment at this point. All of the key poses and audio were completed for it about a year ago now, but then I got super super distracted by a multitude of other things and I sort of lost my focus on it. The cartoons about 11 minutes in length. I dislike how most of it looks now because my overall artistic sensibilities have almost completely changed since I first made it. So I basically wanna re-make the whole 11 minute thing now to bring the art more up to par with what I think Im capable of. However considering reasons I'll go into, thats not a terribly plausable idea.Worst case scenerio with it, I'll release whats finished of it, just so anyone who is curious can still see it. I don't know when I'd do that.

As for what caused me to loose my focus, well at first it was college, but then it more so became that I'm working as a freelance animator full time now. On the posistive side I'm a lot more efficient, I think the fastest I completed a minute and a half animation was 2 weeks. The negative is obviously that I literally have no time to make personal animations anymore. Acceptions being the occassional doodle or quick practice animation, but I don't consider most of those to be of Newgrounds quality. I'd like to get back into making some personal stuff, so still be on the look out for that! but as of right now I think the most you'll see from my own account will be Demo Reels or stuff I made sound effects for.

If you basically want a summary of what I've been up to for the past year and a half as far as animation, then check out this demo reel! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZZ3mp_o7zY

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! And sorry for being unable to produce much on my own account in recent time!



Anime Amigos 4...what am I doin?

2015-12-24 20:18:43 by RyanStorm

Hellu, its been a while

First of all, genuienly honored that my characters are featured on the border in the front page, and drawn by the amazingly talented Harry Partridge!! I gushed about this a bit on twitter when it first popped up, but I feel like I should extend a proper thank you here on NG. So thank you!

Second, I've gotten a lot of fan art of the characters recently. If you ever draw them, tweet them to me or send them to me. I genuienly love seeing the Amigos done up in different arts styles. Hell, I like every rendition of the Anime Amigos someone else has drawn more than my own drawings of them!

Now, to keep everyone on Newgrounds up to date on where I'm at with the fourth installment of Anime Amigos. For starters, right now this episode is 11 minutes long, this is just from animation, not counting an outro and opening titles. I'm also going to be working on a giant robot fight with several other animators, including Unseriousguy and Mackle-Mouix, who are helping me out with some extra key poses. I've also expanded the overall ammount of animators who are helping me out with the next installment, so hopefully it'll be out soon, despite School, my job,  and its overall length. If you haven't already checked out the previous episode and all the other people who helped work on it. Please do so!

Without further adu, heres some status screen shots!

Anime Amigos Update

2015-08-18 12:16:52 by RyanStorm

It's been a while since I've updated, believe it or not I don't have much to say despite how longs its been.

Anime Amigos 3.33 is going well, the October 4th release date is currently feasable(pheasable?) (fesable?)  but shit can happen that could ruin that.

As for the progress of it, all the inbetweens bits are done, and currently I'm pushing through lip syncing and sending stuff to color to friends.

Still waiting on some people to send me stuff/finish stuff, but their good people so I have faith in them.

The list of people helping out has also increased in size...I'll leave it as a surprise as to who those people are.

So, because I have nothing interesting to type, heres some progress pictures.


(above image was done from scratch by @remusyurov )


And allow me to just plug in my twitter: plug https://twitter.com/RyanStormah bzt plug. I'm pretty active there if you wanna catch the occasional update/drawing/porn/weird stuff I find

Anime Amigos 3.33 is happening right now! I've just started on doing layouts.

I'm not alone this time, I actually have some help from some very sexy people, including the assossiation I am a part of known as The Politicians.

Here are those beautiful people

@NabibbleJr doing animation on the mechas, as well as inbetweens, clean up, and coloring

@Remusyurov helping with some inbetweens and coloring

@RedAndrew doing the color palettes for the Evas, as well as helping with coloring and clean up

@Mackle-Mouix Doing some additional art, and helping with clean up, coloring, and inbetweens

@Sirbrickrock Doing some additional art, coloring, and clean up

@Mossler Rei pin-ups, as well as potentially doing some inbetweenies

Christian Hanson (Lord Bababa:) doing some clean up, inbetweens, and coloring

http://octaviosblog.tumblr.com/ TAV is doing some kickass additional art work

https://twitter.com/WilliamBGooode William B. Goode is providing the voice of Robin Williams

and a few friends of mine are doing some girl voices.

Now then, here are some hot pics from the layouts I'm doing


I'll quickly preface this by adding a link to my last cartoon:


Cole Phelps Still an Arse-Hole was me one-upping my old cartoon, Cole Phelps Arse-hole, by making a funnier cartoon. They're parodies of the game L.A. Noire. Neither of them really did all that well on NG heh.

ANYWAY, Anime Amigos!

I'm now onto the third installment of the Anime Amigos series, this time I'm planning on making a satire of the movie Evangelion 3.33 You can (not) Redo. If your not firmiliar with Neon Genesis Evangelion, have no fear, I'm stream lineing it, same as all my other parodies, so you don't need to know the source material to get the humor.

Pending Release: October 4th

Title: Anime Amigos 3.33: This is (Not) Kawaii

I might actually make good on my pending release date this time around, as I've actually gotten some of my fellow animator buds to give me a hand with inbetweening, clean-up, and coloring. This will also be the first cartoon I do that actually features legitimate clean-up.

So thats something for all of you to look forward to! Don't forget to check out Cole Phelps: Still an Arse-Hole.

Pico Day Okay?

2015-04-21 19:40:33 by RyanStorm

Already mentioned this in a post, but goddamit I'm so excited that I felt like doing it again. If you don't know already, I'm gonna be attending Pico Day this year.

If you wanna say hi, heres an up to date picture of me:


If your going and you wanna talk or play smash bros or something, PM me. Just be warned, if you challenge me in smash, we're playing Street Rules. NO MERCY(except I suck so don't wreck me 2hard)


Just a Bunch of Smear Frames

2015-04-03 01:10:56 by RyanStorm

I'm working on a parody of the game, LA Noire right now as some of you might know. My focus right now is on createing strong action poses. Also there are quite a few smear frames in there.

Pico Day and Political Podcasts

2015-03-01 23:51:05 by RyanStorm

First off, I'm working on a new cartoon now (yayyy,) it's a parody of the game L.A. Noire. I've done one before, but since I did it, I've actually played the game, and have thought of soooo many more jokes. They're good, I promise!

Also, I'm going to be in attendance to Pico Day this April, same week as school vacation, and shortly after my birthday...Aprils a good month! To anyone going, hope to see you there and if your feeling it, just say wassup!

Lastly, I've joined up with some other animators on the NG and the YT, on their pre-existing show: Politcal Podcast.

I've done two things with them so far...

The first is the 6th episode of their podcast:


It's funny, I swear.

And me and RedAndrew did a let's play of the Hidden:


its two parts and is also pretty funny!!


Will the podcast end up on NG? I DUNNO MAYBE!! For now though, subscribe to their channel for more, I'll be a part of some of it.

Also I might animate a bit of the podcast I was in sometime, not like full animation, but like, the slide shows you see in SleepyCast and Game Grumps animated...what do I look like to you? The Ricky Gervais Show???
