Stagnate's News

Posted by Stagnate - January 10th, 2019

So Madness Combat 11 has been released and that was pretty amazing! The long wait doesn't matter when you know Krinkels makes it worthwile and always delivers.

I think there are plenty of amazing stuff to come from Krinkels and I'm really looking forward.

I have not worked very much on this short madness thing I'm planning to submit because of time constraint and I've wanted to do other stuff really. Since 4-5 months ago I've joined an education for construction with the direction to become a bricklayer and alot of things start feeling out of place to my life making it hard to get motivated to work on something if it doesn't suit me which means i have to twist and turn things into finally suiting me. This is probably nonsense and uneccessary to say but that's the closest to an explanation I have.

I have worked on other things though that I thought I'd share for whoever's interested, for one I had a short short animation planned with a song from burggg ( https://burggg.newgrounds.com/ ) but I just ended up never being pleased with it, here's the only completed scene. 

https://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/f5f0904d042c5188294cd5b2038d272f You could basically sum it up as a random collab part, hell if anyone's looking for a short part for a collab we can hash it out.

I have also started with more traditional animation in Krita where i'm able to animate in raster graphics instead of vector which flash uses and it just opens up a ton more possibilities, I would start lagging so much as soon as i reached 15% completion on whatever fbf piece I was working on in flash because of  the vector but with this I can spend as much time as i want on a single frame as I want with no lag, here's a gif from a test I'm working on. 3766755_154712984823_Foot6.gif

As for when I'm in this school for construction I tend to draw on lunch breaks and test things. I started on this a few weeks ago sorry for the low quality on the phone.3766755_154713053213_.pngOther than that I've been planning on starting with wood carving and engraving, but I don't think that's something for here. For Newgrounds specifically I will in the future be making animations that will be submitted here, first this madness one and then I will move onto full fledged traditional fbf animation with features from older animations and their story and plot will be just about anything I'm interested in making and I have very many ideas of things to make in the future. But somehow I feel as if it's not suitable for this account, I don't know. I will always be making things but they will not be the same as I've made before here or that of the things I'm 'known' for having made so I'm not sure how that will pan out.

That's all I have to say I think, a little more than needed but then again I'm not great at making posts. Happy new year and good luck on this year.

Happy Madness Day.

I thought I could submit this little thing I have been working on for Madness Day but I won't be able to finish it in time, I have underestimated the work it takes to complete something for it to actually be satisfactory and I want to take more time to do what is needed for me to be happy with this short film. It's not a massive film project it's just something I would like to work and build on sometimes, like a painting.

I don't really have much to say about the submissions for Madness Day, somewhere along the line I lost interest in anyone's work but Krinkels. But I think it's great that people are still involved in the madness scene and it's certainly a great way to get started in animation, it was for me.

Here's a frame from the short film, the leading animation will probably be animated effects. Also it is madness related if I forgot to mention for some reason and may be completed in a few months or weeks, just forget it ever existed and some day it'll just appear.

My profile has gotten very red lately, maybe just a coincidence or i've really started liking the color red.

Anyway I am working on something brief that's madness-related but not typically madness, just something I'd like to make.


Here's a very red screeny.

I´ve been listening to this compilation from Blockhead relatively over the midst of 5 years or so over and over and just noticed how actually great it is, check it out if you´re a fan of Trip hop or something of the like.

Madness combat is one of the coolest and most fascinating ways of animation and I'm glad it exists, I dont think it will ever leave me completely.

Thanks Krinkels.

On another note, I haven't been very sincere with this site and I'd have to apologise for that. I wont become some sort of full time animator focusing solely on making animations here on newgrounds or giving it my all, but I wouldn't leave it either. I'll just come back every now and then and post things/animations and stay semi-active for the heck of it. 

The madness animation i've been working on has been on an hiatus because my stationary pc is currently packed down and my laptop can't handle flash animations to that extent so it's gonna have to go on a break for a bit, it wont really be released until a few years probably anyway since it's just something I'm working on for fun when I feel like it.

Take care!
