Level 8, beotches!

Lol, I know it's not much to post about and that lots more peeps have way higher levels like 18 or 25 or something, but still, I thought it was worth posting.

I've also been working on blams and saves, so maybe I can reach 'Town Watch' soon. And maaayybee up my whistle status? Idk.

Oh, and being scouted would be nice.

Oh, and I also changed my aura to light, cuz I felt like it.

I finally got it out! Take a lookie and give my some feedback, I tried some of your tips and a new style of animating. Let me know what you think!


I put out the new Assassin Test!

Posted by Tarantulaben - June 19th, 2011

Alright guys, I haven't posted in a while. So anyway, here's a little Madness Assassin update; I've finished school, meaning I'll have more time to work on my projects, including The Madness Assassin. I have an almost complete storyboard and I've got almost all of the sprites finished. I've also picked up some new animating techniques of the net to assist me.

So, good news, you can probably expect The Madness Assassin within the next couple months. In fact, if it were the only thing I were working on, I would probably be able to complete it sooner. However, I still need to improve my animating skills and learn how to compress audio properly and how to use less space. Also, I'm moving to Ontario soon, back closer to family, and a lot less french. So, I'll be busy there too. Don't worry, I'll start animating it soon!

Oh by the way, I've redrawn the assassin's body to a more customized feel and less copy-and-pasted. I completely redrew it myself, as now that I've gotten a lot better at drawing Madness sprites. Anyway, check it out:

The Assassin's new look!

Alright guys, I've finally got my hands on a few things that everyone will be happy about. Or at least, happy that I had in the future.

First of all, I've got some real Madness Combat sprites on me now, and I'm editing them now to re-make the characters that I built before. Check out the picture I've included below to see the big difference.

I also have some awesome Madness Combat sounds, from the actual animation. No more scrambling over the net to find some sweet gunshot sounds!

And, another thing that is great, is that I have an audio converter now! Meaning I can make my microphone files in wav. format and put them in flash. :D

However, the mic isn't the best quality. Yet, I can use it for now to perhaps make some... James & Jim? Of course.

Anyway, I'll probably make another test with the new sprites, audio, etc. Based of the tips you guys gave me I will hopefully have improved. See you then!

New Madness Sprites and more!

Alright, so I've made my first animation! It's short, but it's mainly for feedback purposes. I find that animating using madness style characters is very easy, so I will probably continue animating this way.

Consulting my James and Jim series that you guys have heard all about, I have a new mic that I can use to voice the characters. However, flash only accept mp3 format audio files and my recorder doesn't save them as mp3. So until I can convert audio into mp3 format, James and Jim will have to wait a while.

So until then, expect more madness style animations from me, as well as a possible full length Madness Assasin animation.

Argh! My freakin' Mic wont work so I can't to the voices for "James and Jim". I recently got this voice changer program so I could do one or to other vioces more easily, and then all of a sudden my Mic wont record the sound! Trust me, I've trying inserting the Mic plug into every socket of my laptop, it just won't work!

Maybe it's the program that screwed it up... Either way, I'm not going to bother working on James and Jim until it works again, so until then I'll just be uploading some art that I drew in Flash. So James and Jim will have to wait, until I can do the voices. So, um, yea. I'm not too happy.

I'm thinking abot starting a Newgrounds series based on a comic I've been making in real life called "James & Jim." Now alot of you are gonna start thinking, "He makes comics? How childish." then think again.

James and Jim is about a cool guy named James, and an anoyying guy named Jim. Simple, right? Well, at the beggining, yes. But later on we introduce a talking dog named Steve, a Proffesor with a time machine, A shady man trying to kill James, Guns, and some alcohol references. Sometimes, story will progress throughout the episodes, like about James' missing brother, who was kidnapped when he was 5. Now, some of the younger audiences might be thinking now, "I don't know if this is right for me." Well, don't worry. There is gonna be only some mild language, guns, and maybe a drunk dog.

So We'll see what happens! Later.

It got me intteerrested! Soz, I had wEnt to gOEUs to seArch 4 itz on teh Utube, and- Oh, sorry... got carried away there. So I found some videos, and sure enough, i found some. Then I realised i didnt have to download it, and it was on Newgrounds!!!!!! =P

Well, hey everyone. For those who don't know me already, I'm Tarantulakid96 and I do parodies and funny videos on YouTube. So Super Mario Bros Z Ep8 just came out, and I couldnt wait for the YouTube version, so I went on newgrounds here and watched it, thought I'd make a newgrounds account, and, well who knows. So far and just favouriting, rating, and commenting, but you never know, I might make and upload some flash animations!
