JazLyte's News

Posted by JazLyte - September 23rd, 2009

Despite my extreme apathy toward Madness, I recently played Krinkels in a cartoon by the one known as Dirtshake that was his Madness Day submission, oh boy the effects of alcohol on Newgrounds animators unfortunately :P

Click here to watch, candy ass. I'm Krinkels. And the black guy.

Oh and for those interested who didn't see, I put out the first episode of my new Necropolis series on DA. NG will get the special closure edition at whatever time I see fit, where Jazz-kun and Kiara-sama have hot yaoi dojinshi sex! XDXDX X3x3 lolololoroflmayo.


I'm a Madness Whore

All these damn keyframes you better be glad i love you

Hey Newgrounds

Posted by JazLyte - September 7th, 2009

New toon out, Necropolis: Episode I, exclusively for DA.

Enjoy. Unfortunately, I'm not putting this on my first love Newgrounds. I've been here long enough to know that original series don't get too much play unless they're just the fucking shit, so next year, when the story arc is done I'll release it here as one big 17 minute movie (Xenophobe, of course).

All pre-production is done for the next 2 episodes, so no quits on this one. I've been working all year on gathering the acting, mixing audio, making a soundtrack, doing ALL the rough animation and just general pacing back and forth around my room.

I hope you love it! Saying that always works for Krinkels, and people would eat a burger if he shit on it.

Update: Oh, and to clarify due to a few comments (meanin one comment :P), I'm not just keeping it off NG solely because I know it won't get any publicity, I really do just want NG to get the best possible version. NG will always be the shit over DA, that's why I'm gonna have patience and make it something big instead of some of my usual "To be continued because I was too lazy to finish the story" bullshit.

New Necropolis first episode out!

Nothing important, just random completion percentages and release dates that probably won't be realistic. I just do this for kicks, really, but the production stats are real.

//Xenophobe -
Storyboard: Complete
Voice Acting: Complete
Overall Audio and SFX: Complete
Animatic: Complete (Length: 10:27 minutes)
Finalized animation: 65% Done
Expected Completion Date: October

....is that I'm watching you. It is not I that is through the looking glass, but you!

The truth about my vanity and insecurity....

So I watched the Japanese sub of Ponyo....

And wow, Meeyazacky-sammuh was TRULY making something for the kiddies. It didn't just have a youthful charm like Spirited Away, I mean this movie like some Dora the Explorer shit, sans the pauses that create the illusion of interactivity for a gullible mind.

Visually, I don't believe it beat Spirited away, though the animation was significantly more present than an any of his previous works (I still would've liked some shading and some more stylish colors, it just came across as old-school to me). But nonetheless, it was enjoyable, and Ponyo and Sosuke's interactions were completely fucking adorable.

I say watch it, but it's no Princess Mononoke (Pleasefortheloveofgodhayaomakeasequel ), This is truly made for 8's and under.

Oh, and dis-n***a-ry-cheer, is shockingly a man.

Watched Ponyo in Japanese

I just got back from seeing GI Joe, and it was pretty damn sweet. Nothing revolutionary as far as plot, mythology and storytelling, and the 3D parts are less than realistic, but the action scenes will give you the sex face. The highlight of the movie being a chase scene in Paris involving metal steroid armor, the best character would be Snake Eyes because he says nothing, and the most stupid, annoying character would go to Rex. Shocking to me was the fact that Marlon Wayans had a subtle enough presence as the comic relief to where he wasn't that annoying guy in every action flick that's supposed to be funny but isn't.

tldr: GI Joe was good stupid fun.

Go watch it.

GI Joe is Kul

Hey Newgrounds. You'll be seeing a flash from me soon, next weekend at the latest. I'm down to the last scene of my toon Xenophobe, it'll be 7 minutes of crazy futuristic African bullshit with no apparent cause. The story as a whole is a 2-fer, so this is the first tale I'll be giving you this year. The first scene is here in the portal already so you know what's in store for you.

Hope you're frothing at the fucking mouth with excitement,

Love, Jazz

Also, look at what I just came across. Hahaha, who's the fucking artistic genius who made this shit XD

Xenophobe Nearing Completion

Posted by JazLyte - July 17th, 2009

The Cure for Animator Laziness!

Amateur animators, ever find yourself in that position where you've started an ambitious project but you've become bored with it? This is more the rule than the exception for me, I know that much. I love the idea of making another movie as long as my first submissions, but these days it hasn't been as easy because I'm a little impatient.

Me and my buddy Matt came up with a cure, and it's simple. Animate with other people. He wrote an article in his blog explaining it and it's advantages. Matt is the same as me wherein we start a bunch of shit and never finish it, many times it's probably because we're probably off somewhere getting fucked up at the same party. WELL, READ IT. TRY IT.This may only work if you have a laptop though :P

Make sure if you compliment the article to leave it on his page, or in the forum thread he made for it.

Xenophobe 2nd Audition

I need more voices for my new project, Xenophobe, which is close to completion and even though it's only half of the project I originally came up with (which was too big for me at 15 minutes, the rest will come later and ALL the pre-production is done, it will not be ditched). I'm adding a scene because the first story needs closure, I refuse to slap a "Part 1" or "Episode 1" on this submission when it's done. So humor me and audition for these 2 parts!

I really won't go into detail about the parts, because either you have the voice of the character or you don't and if your acting is good, that won't really help too much if you don't fit the part all. You don't have to be the exact race of the character, since I know I'm asking for two very rare things on Newgrounds, a black female and an adult black male in his 40's.

- Spiral (Spy-ral): Young black female, age 19. I don't want any really squeaky, high-pitched giddy voices (Sorry, I know you're out there though). That's really all I ask. The age is most important.

(ROLE CHOSEN, SORRY GUYS)- Percy: Middle-aged black man, age 40. I kind of picture him having an African or Jamaican accent, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU AREN'T GOOD AT IT. I'm taking what I can get with this one lol.

You know the drill, drop me a PM telling me you want to try out, with a sample of where your voice was used, and your email address. I email you the script with your parts highlighted, and you go for it. I LISTEN TO EVERYBODY, give it a shot.

2nd Voice Audition & The Cure

Posted by JazLyte - July 10th, 2009

Founds meh employment, I'm officially a...telemarketer.... until school starts this semester. Look, 40 hours a week 9 bucks an hour for a 19 year old with no experience in the state with the shittiest economy in the US, yup, I'm grateful.

ANYWAY, that embarrassing news aside, I am back to animating, in the weeks since I submitted Shut Up and Evolve (A cavalcade of randomness that is supposed to be a preview of Xenophobe). I've made significant progress, and come across a snag.

After 6 months of planning and 2 months of finalized animating, Flash has stopped obeying me. This movie is supposed to be 14 minutes long, I get all the rough animations done and 1/3 of the finals, and flash quits obeying me, just won't export or anything. So I'm chopping the project up into 2 parts, and you'll probably get to see something from me sooner than I intended initially (the first 7 minutes of the cartoon) since the movie was 2 stories anyways.


Back on the grind.
