Totally forgot to post one of these.. For like 2 months haha.

First of all.. I got one of those Formspring account things. So feel free to come ask me some awesome questions and I'll do my best to answer them!

I was a VIP of Muse during the Big Day Out in Perth! Turns out my cousins family friend works for the band as a electronica.. guy?.. Anyway it was awesome. I ended up going to a VIP party afterwards at a hotel with all the bands. Birds of Tokyo, Dizzy Rascal, Muse and a shit load of other bands were walking around the party all night and I was getting off my arse drunk on the free booze. What a night!

Oh and I had my animation panel at Wai-Con in Perth which was really fun! I still haven't chopped up the video of that and put it on YouTube... its about 3gb. I'll get around to that some time haha.

I'm also planning to study abroad to get my Bachelors of Animation. Currently looking into the best way to approach this. Sadly such a degree is not attainable within West Australia. So I'll most likely be doing it somewhere in California. Should be neat!

Also I'm sure pretty much every caught the news about Dudley. Oh man, what stud.

Today, I'm embarrased to call myself an Australian. Internet Censorship Green Lighted.



Found these on DA, thought I'd share. Really neat. Gotta love the attention to detail on the transformations.

I'm hosting an animation panel at Wai-Con 2010 in PERTH WA! :)

So it appears I'll be hosting a panel at Wai-Con (January 23-24) at the Perth convention center. I'm going to be talking to people about how they can easily create their own animation for the web for near to no cost. I'll also be talking about my experiences and such. So I'll be working on a big ass presentation for that. Should be interesting! For those of you that don't know, I also teach animation at a film school during the week, so hosting a panel should be an interesting challenge.

I also plan to premiere a few brand new cartoons there! I'll also have a table at the convention with my friend Alex, who is a very talented artist. I've been teaching him to animate as of late and he's gotten rather good rather fast. We're even going to be working on a few things together next year. :)

Like Supanova in 2008, I'll also be bringing along my laptop and WACOM to animate random things in front of a crowd (I face the screen away from our table so everyone can see).

I'll try to make sure someone records the panel so I can upload it later on! Is there anything in particular you think I should talk about?

Also I should add that I'm almost done on my newest cartoon "Gameoverse 4" which is looking hilarious so far. The aim is to get it out by the end of this month.. But we'll see if I can follow through on that promise considering a few set backs.

Oh yeah and I totally forgot to post this old crappy remake of a even crappier 5 year old cartoon I created to accompany a friends audio manipulation of Half-Life 2...

New Cartoon Teaser!

Due to the unexpected amounts of requests I've got for this, I've decided to do another 2 episodes of "Gameoverse". For those of you who don't know what it is, its a seriously sarcastically written/animated series about a T-Rex and a Dolphin that have to save the universe. It was originally created as the mini series for Playboy's "Playmation Nation". But I decided to do more.. Because well, they're damn fun to make.

If you haven't seen them, check them out here.

New Cartoon Teaser!



Sadly didn't get to see this on my isolated side of Australia, but looking at the photos all I can say is DAMN! So cool. Parts of the east coast were covered in a blanket of dust, giving the areas a strong orange/red hue.

Check out these two galleries for all the photos.

GALLERY 1

GALLERY 2

The attached photo is a nostalgic one, because its the location of a Sydney Newgrounds meet group photo.

Peace,

Australia gets covered in a Newgrounds colour scheme?

Hey guys!

I'm currently looking for someone who would be willing to compose 1 or 2 fantasy tracks for an episode of my new series (this episode is a 2 parter). Think "Lord of the Rings". Was hoping to use a friend of mine, but I've been unable to get in contact with him. I'm hoping to release it near the end of November, I'm already in the early stages of producing the animation. If possible please forward me a link via PM to some of your work (preferably related content) and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Sorry I haven't really been active lately, upon returning from 6 weeks in California I've had a lot to catch up on.

Cheers,

-Ross

I was in There Will Be Brawl!.. And Blizzcon :)

When I was in California this July, I was fortunate enough to become friends with Zach, one of the creators of "There Will Be Brawl" on The Escapist. Because of this, myself and Faye (Princess Aurora) were invited to be extras on the 7th installment of the series. I play the jail break "Excite Bike Guy" and Faye plays "Jill Dozer". We briefly come in about 13 minutes or so in. If you havent' checked out the other episodes, do it! It's a great series, very funny! Check out the episode here!

Also I've been streaming Blizzcon all this weekend, since I was unable to stick around in California to attend. Some of the announcements have been fantastic and Starcraft II and Diablo are looking to be amazing games. Surprisingly the new WoW expansion looks rather pleasing. One this that really caught my eye was the improved water effects, which you can briefly notice in the trailer (the water looks very inviting!).

Some of the new animation looks rather neat, check out this transformation from the art panel.

They were talking about the monk class in Diablo III which looks extremely fun. Basically they plotted out the class so it'd play like a "fighting game character" through combo based fighting. Very cool!

.

I'm really looking forward to Starcraft 2 after seeing what the custom content creator is capable of! They showed a third person Ghost shooter built in the custom editor, which was really impressive.

Did anyone here end up attending? Did anyone stream it?

Peace,
