Been a while since I made posts here. Anyway, here's the main website for it:

Finally, to avoid low scores, I'm uploading a batch of Blugrays shorts every couple of months.

 

God bless you all!


The Squishables is CANCELLED.

Title says all. Hopefully I'll reboot it in 2018 or 2019 with the new name Hublobs.

 

God bless you all!



Good news, animators who use the Creative Cloud! Adobe Animate CC is out, and so is my collab about it!

No More 2014 & 2015 Movies

2015-09-20 16:28:10 by Natty23
Updated

The downvoting has stopped for quite some time now, but since you can't vote on a submission multiple times anymore, some of my movies may never recover completely. As a result, all of them are unpublished, and may remain unpublished for good. The only ones still there are collabs I have participated in and Accountable Talk Prompts (since it was close to its original score). I will still upload new movies here though, but let's just hope they get good scores in the future as I hopefully make better content.

God Bless you, and thanks!


Someone is Downvoting My Movies

Okay, so this has been going on ever since Accountable Talk Prompts received it's Daily 4th. Apparently someone is downvoting all of my 2015 and 2014 movies every single day since Accountable talk Prompts got a daily award. I don't want to be rude, but if you're the person that keeps downvoting my 2015 and 2014 movies daily just because you didn't like one of my movies (possibly Accountable talk Prompts), then why are you coming back every single day to give not only that movie alow score, but the other ones I made in 2015 and 2014 too? Please leave the movies alone and just move on with your life. Hopefully this problem ends soon.


This Day is AMAZING!!!

Even though I didn't get a daily award for the PupilPath episode I uplodaded recently, I did get a Runner-up Award (6th Place), so I guess that means it wasn't so bad after all!

Oh yeah, and this happened!

So I guess this shows that The Squishables episode is finally improving! While I'll never use real voices for at least the main characters, it's because I could get episodes out quicker that way. Plus I have schoolwork to do too, you know. 

 

Overall, let's hope I get better and better at animating and drawing this year!


Just a reminder that...

...the first animation that I'll release in 2015 should be a Shapewolrd episode. Can you guess what it'll be about?

It'll be up on mrcontesty, my YouTube account.


I'm Improving My Future Cartoons

2014-12-12 23:33:15 by Natty23
Updated

All future animations I create will follow some of these Game and Movie Standards that are on this page here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/creator-resources/game-and-movie-standards

Starting from my very next cartoon, I'll try my best to include Ending Screens to all future cartoons I make from now on. Also, beginning from Webdings Episode # 5, the intro will be changed, but I'll make sure that it isn't that long either. I also came up with a new, snazzy walk cycle for most of the Webdings. I've already used it in The Bubbles' Thanksgiving Parade, as well as my entry for that Sheep Collab.

The next Webdings short should be about the new Voice Acting forum that debuted thanks to Piper.

And sorry if The RJL Show Episode # 2 isn't out yet, but I'll see if I could get it out before the end of the year. It probably won't be as epic as Episode # 1, though.

Finally, if you're interested in helping me, I need help choosing music for a future The Squishables short:

I may or may not update this blog post one more time (or maybe even multiple times) for more information.


RJL Show, The Squishables, and Other Stuff

If anyone is still interested in helping me out with the Webdings FLA Library, they could come here:

Sure, it's been almost a year and seven months since the last episode of The RJL Show, but I assure you that it won't get an outrageouisly high score this time, and it's not canceled either. It's just on a really, long hiatus. So I'm working on the series again, except that they'll upgrade to Windows 7 and only RJL pranks that are usable for up to Windows 7 will have episodes now. For instance, Click Start was going to be the next episode, but it's not compatibile for Windows 7, so it'll no longer have a The RJL Show episode. I also plan to have 36 episodes total, and 4 bonus ones in which you have to do something in order to watch them. So overall, that's 40 episodes, and there'll be four seasons overall. Each season will have a single bonus episode. I regained interest in continuing the series, so speaking of which...

As for The Squishables, I'm taking back a new style I previously made for the series (in which no cartoon on this Newgrounds account has), and I'm going right back to the Softball Telethon style, except that the outlines will be colored, like in The RJL Show. It too isn't cancelled, and should hopefully receive more cartoosn soon, and for once some of these episodes aren't based off of school events (great, right MistyEntertainment?)! I don't know whether to use smooth lines for this series still, or to go back to the slightly jagged and/or rough lines that I'll still use in The RJL Show. It's a possibility the jagged lines may return since Curtis Career Connections used that style, and it has better ratings than Softball Telethon. And the mouth style will be the same one like the one from Best of You too.

Plus, tomorrow will be the fifth anniversary of The Squishables! That's right, it started on October 6, 2009, and now it's starting to get even older! This series will end after Season 8 if anyone is interested.

Going back to The RJL Show, it'll still have it's unique shading style (unless you guys want me to use the shading style in The Squishables for that series) and the jagged lines like seen in Curtis Career Connections, but once again, the mouth style will be the same one from my Best of You animation, which is by far the best Squishables-related cartoon to date (at least according to me).

On another note, I'm making props that I may use in my series, and yes, some of these props aren't traced. A new technique is that I draw the prop in my sketchbook, then take a picture of the sketch, then trace it in Flash, color it, and shade it.

I might edit this journal if I feel like I forgot anything or to make sure something is correct, but I'm not sure as of yet.

So have fun!

RJL Show Episode # 2 will be released on October 29, 2014.


Webdings FLA Library, and more!

2014-08-29 00:31:51 by Natty23

I have just finished making the beta version of the Webdings FLA Library for my Webdings series. As long as you have Flash 8 or up, you could get the file for yourself and tell me if sizings are off, what colors need changing, and stuff like that. So basically, you could tell me how I could improve on my FLA Library before I release it to the public. Please PM me if you are interested.

On another note, The Squishables Season 6 is in progress, and will debut with a new and neater style. Although, for the moment, it may take longer to do the new style, but in a way, it'll be easier to animate the bodies of the characters and stuff like that! Anyway, see you then!
