OMG OMG OMG Walking Dead is on tonight!! Years ago I got into the comics and when the show came on; and the story was changed, I absolutely LOVED it! Because... now I can continue to read the comics as they come out AND watch the show; giving me twice the storyline! *fandrool
So I made a song to celebrate.
Oh I'm so pumped for this!
I've been posting a song per week on YouTube with a video for the last... oh... 7 months or so. I've also been posting a Thursday video telling everyone about my art on Etsy. NO MORE!
I was asked by fans and friends alike to make a vlog. This was the first time I had heard about this vlogging thing; so I gave it a shot last week... and it went well!
So this week I made another!
Based on the questions from my fans, I created this little video.
1. Million Second Quiz experience (those living in USA know what I'm on about)
2. My first Kiss
3. How I compose!
4. General la-dee-da's.
Because it's animated; I posted this on Newgrounds! I focused on frame by frame stuff! So let me know any tips/suggestions that you have as animators so I can learn, learn, LEARN! :D
Newgrounds submission to my song "Tempted To Say"
Oh! I also went to Washington DC two weekends ago and it ... was... AWESOME! I did this sweet ride at the Air & Space Museum, where I had to shoot enemy planes while my friend piloted a jet. (Simulator) - We did so many barrel rolls and hung upside down for most of it. What else does one do in a full-moving simulator?
Then we went to Six Flags America in Maryland! Oh man... so much awesome stuff!!
... be kind!
It took me 11 hours to make, on a Friday. It's my first Newgrounds Movie Portal submission, I don't expect to win awards, but today is a really special day for me. I've always wanted to start animating and I'm finally gutsy enough to try.
Hope you enjoy this!!
And here's the one on YouTube :)
Creepy creepy stuff! Take a look at my new music video; DEMON!
It's gotten a nice little response on The YouTube so far, I'd love it to reach everyone that enjoys my music so feel free to share! (please) Like it, love it, comment, subscribe, request, critique, enjoy, laugh, hide... you know. :p
In other news, my art has turned into SUMMER TIME GOLD! (photo) Like it? Buy it! It's under $20!
I'm sure there are Newgrounders on here with money... and now that I'm only living off music and art sales, I call upon you!
Go take a look at my art (ranges from $5 to a couple hundred buckaroos) ;)
Better yet - commission me to make you some music! About whatever you want! Seriously... whatever you want.
<3 LOVE <3
NOTE: There are swear words and inappropriate references made in this song... want it? Take a listen. Don't want it? Don't take a listen. Simple :D
The song is available for download on my website ! Woo!! (which is also new and exciting!!) **thumbs up
It's really just a play on what I see online these days with cartoons about stuff... not meant to offend, just meant to entertain. :D
I had an absolute blast composing this song, singing it is so fun! And I really liked filming it. Heh, I actually super enjoy playing on a free-moving keyboard!
So far it's had a nice little response so I thought I'd share it on Newgrounds to see what you all think of me stretching out my legs a little and relaxing with my subject matter. Can't always be serious and deep with my music making. *wink
***SIDE NOTE*** MUSIC FOR YOU ALL!! ***
If you need music for your game, let me know! I have a little bit of time where I can make a few things for you all :D
I had a strong urge to make a video clip starring my friend Lori Pacholka. So I asked, she accepted and wham, bam, DONE:
My friend Patrick directed and shot this film clip - and it was SO MUCH FUN!!! He and I came up with the concept earlier in the week, we did a few test runs together to work out the finer details and then Lori came up from Philly to get involved. We did one practice run, one dress rehearsal and then filmed it on the 3rd go! I am so thrilled and thankful to have had those two on board for this. <3
My favorite part was teleporting from spot to spot. I think I've got that down. ;)
Squirtle Got a Gun, Squirtle Got a Gun (oh yeah he got a gun...)
This started off as a project that was meant to be animated but it never happened so the song was put out on its own with some web cam shenanigans!
I've got the song for sale on my site & iTunes so if you'd like to support me, go buy it! But I feel it should be available to download here for free as I was lucky enough to be able to head to the NG Office in Philly months back to try out some vocals for this in their recording booth! I didn't end up using those vocals, but the trip allowed me to brainstorm and practice and that's just as important!
If you feel like downloading it here for free, make sure you still go check out my NEW website! MyHaniaArt; and maybe click the "Donate" button to buy me lunch while I work on more music and art! :D
For all those people following my art stuff; here's my Etsy Store !! :D A lot of cool people have been buying my artworks and it's so humbling to be able to walk them to the post office every few days! Keep it coming beloved art collectors!!! <3
So much has happened in the last few months I don't know where to begin - so if you've got questions, PM me. :) I'll leave you now with a photo of me walking down some cool looking train tracks in Byron Bay when I visited Australia a few weeks ago. It was great to see my parents, but I can't help by think of USA as my home now. *wink
Hey Newgrounds!! It's been a while!!
AND, I opened up an Etsy Store! The most popular item is the personalized lyrics that I'm writing out for people. I've sent them out to UK, Netherlands, Germany, Australia, USA... it's so exciting and awesome. :D
This year has been so hectic so far, and I'm sure it's only going to be getting more busy! But I just HAD to post to NG as this is where it all started, and I'll never forget this amazing community. Love you all and I hope to be sharing more with you soon!
ps. Go Devils! <3
I grew up on MLP, Rainbow Brite, Lady Lovely Locks, Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z. And everything Disney. But that's beside the point; MLP was awesome. It still is! (yeah, I watch it) :p
So, I thought I'd combine the original theme song that I grew up on, with the newer version to make a cool little cover.
And a video to go with it...
On the 1st June, I move into my new home, with my amazing studio set up that we're in the process of obtaining. Then I shall work super hard to get something out every week. For the next 12 months.
USA has been awesome so far!! Did 6 Flags already - will do it again. And again. Who wants to go?
I just found out there's a mermaid parade at cony island in June... feel free to send me mermaid costume ideas !
I'm writing a song at the moment without the aid of a keyboard... should be interesting when I finally record it. It's about the China Town Bus that takes you from PHL to NYC. Had a run in with that one the other day... fun times.
Again - if you're heading to Great Adventure and have an extra seat in the car; count me in!!
The Newgrounds meet-ups were awesome!! Pico day rocked socks and then the NYC meet-up was so much fun! It was awesome meeting everyone that came and getting to finally put faces to names. :D
There's too much to tell, but thank you to all those who have been emailing me and messaging me during this time, with welcomes and well-wishes! 1 month in USA and we feel at home! :D (and the food... oh man... the food is so moreish.)
Right, hopefully the next time I post, I'll be linking to a new song.
