Working on Kill Wolfy 2 and a Hyenaville comic when I'm not selling my soul to corporations who don't know I exist.

Here, have a new chapter of the Hyenaville comic ya skank!



and have a gander at the last 2 chapters if you're into it B]



I'm gonna make a concerted attempt to put out one of these a month while I'm working on Kill Wolfy 2, they're honestly pretty quick to make compared to that fuckin thing. Enjoy!

Hey ya'll, it's your dear old gay Newgrounds auntie from the 00's, it's been a while since I've finished a film so my uploads have been sparse - Kill Wolfy 2's kicking my ass, but it's gonna be fuckin' dope! Currently, half the animation's done!


If you haven't had a chance to check out the animatic, watch it here on NG and imagine the misery of trying to animate this thing by yourself with a 9-5 job :D



In the meantime, have two new Hyenaville comics I stitched together <3



Enjoy, hopefully more content soon!

Hey ya'll, for the first time since I was a kid it's been over a year since I submitted a finished cartoon to the 'Grounds, but I am about to rectify that bullshit in a big way as I'm putting the finishing touches on a new film. This film is the most animated thing I've ever made and contains without a doubt my most ambitious(read: fucking overdone/regrettable) fight sequence, I've been working on it on and off since fucking 2015.

After the Hyenaville content I dropped last year, I ended up in a pretty time-consuming studio situation and started dreaming that I could have any confidence as an artist without making internet cartoons and well... I woke the fuck up B] So if anybody remembers my ass I'm not dead and also get hype, I'm about to steal another 2 and a half minutes from you <3

For those of you interested in production art, the animatic for the next Hyenaville movie is online. I work in storyboards  full time and like to keep my portfolio up to date, so the storyboards always end up public on my professional portfolio anyway months before the actual movie is done; might as well share! Soundtrack is by ZOOLOO75!

 

See you in a few months with manimation, sluts!

Hey guys, thanks for votes on Free Ride for Best of May! Awesome to be contrinuting seriously to the 'Grounds again, this was definitely incentinve to keep it moving!

Unfortunately I don't quite have time at the moment to jump into the next Hyenaville movie; as some of you know I'm also a greenhorn with a lukewarm future in mainstream animation that I need to secure, so I need to spend my last months at Warner Bros revamping my portfolio and probably taking classes to ensure that I'll be able to eat in the Winter. As easy as doing indie shit comes to me, I might as well be a toddler at work so the chances of another Free Ride-ish thing happening before snow hits the ground is slim.

I won't be a stranger though, I have a few Hyenaville shorties frontloaded in case I hit a crisis about who owns my right hand again. In the meantime, I'll try and make a point to share my portfolio work here and on my other social media as well. Here, shut up and have some example drawings.

This is just something to get the post about the now-defunct Hyenaville webcomic off of my page, because I'm just animating Hyenaville instead. There should be at least one more this year after Free Ride, depending on the comfort of my work situation.

I generally post gifs of animation I'm proud of on Twitter @JazLyte for my current projects, you know what to do. See you in a few months.

Hey guys, been awhile! After 6 years of school and trying to grow the fuck up, I have finally found time (I say this very loosely) and an outlet for all of the ideas I had planned on tackling with my old Necropolis cartoons, a new webcomic called Hyenaville! 

It's an drama/comedy/action diddy about a shit city full of depraved people eating each other alive. Figuratively in most cases. Check out the new pages every MONDAY and FRIDAY here on Newgrounds in my ART SECTION or at http://hyenaville.com!

Also, LIKE HYENAVILLE on Facebook and get the new pages every week with no fucking effort! Hope it makes you smile, sluts!

Here's the first 3 pages to get you started, slugger.

See you FRIDAY with a new page!

HEY ASSHOLES, another Saturday another LiveStream of our animation studio pathetically clambering to make a cartoon in 3 hours! Come in and notice us, sempai B)

(Last week's cartoon!)

Oh boy, I have not uploaded a cartoon in damn near 8 months and I am sorry if anybody actually remembers that I exist. I used to make flash anime and now my life is consumed by making art for the man, man. Jesus, this needs to change. 

Anyway, I'm currently and for the past 6 months been haunting ShadowMachine, (where in the kitchen I met animator badass DonkeysBazooka by complete accident, who works there on Bojack Horseman) first working on Greatest Party Stories for MTV as an animator, and even a "lead" animator at one point, and if you've seen the show you've seen animation by yours truly including but not limited to: (I'd show more, but they're from unaired episodes)

If you haven't seen the show, check it out on Thursday nights whenever the fuck it's 10:30pm in California, figure it out yourself, I'm an artist, I'm not gonna fuckin do math for you. There's a hell of a lot more of my animation in this show and it's some of my best.

Also, between productions I did storyboards for SpindoTV, a collection of web toons for a demographic I've completely ignored since I've starting making cartoons. I boarded these two things: 
 

WHAT I'M SAYING IS NEWGROUNDS, I'M NOT DEAD. I'm just a working stiff and my personal stuff is taking significantly longer, but don't worry, it's coming. Boy is it coming. An action toon. The be all end all. Watch, you'll love it, go away though right now.
