New cartoon and competition

New cartoon! =)

I'm also running a competition for some Loon artwork (details below)

The Newgrounds version of this toon has MEDALS and other interactive bits and bobs for shats and gaggles =D enjoy

The score is by the very talented Hamstercake, check out his page here

Competition details
Loon is a graffiti artist mate of mine who paints ducks in various different pop culture contexts. He has been so kind as to donate some of his art to me. These pieces will be given away in a competition to my YouTube community.

The conditions for entry are that you be subscribed to my YouTube account and Comment or favourite my new short gladiator cartoon titled; “A battle to the Death”. The winners will be picked on July 1st 2011 and will be notified via YouTube message shortly after. The Winners will have 3 days to respond to the message and provide an email for further contact or they forfeit the prize. These details will only be used for postage reasons and then discarded.

There is 1 major prize and 5 minor prizes to be given away. The major prize is a Loon spray paint on canvas duck riding a bomb, and I’m jealous to be giving it away. The minor prizes consist of 5 unframed signed and numbered spray paint on 300GSM paper works, a Spiderman duck and a BettyBoop duck!

I am happy to pay for standard sea postage but insurance or quicker postage will be the option and responsibility of the winners. The winners will receive the art work and nothing more or less.

Apologies for the formal bits but apparently you need all this information to run a competition. I guess it makes sense.

Anyway good luck and I hope you guys enjoy my latest cartoon =).

Much love

Deadlines due dates and taxes?

First things first... introducing Mayor Awesome

For this months 11SecClub competition they selected some Bouncy happy cartoony audio =) So Mayor Awesome is a logical end result =)

Everything and anything seems to be due in the next 2 weeks so I've been trying to finish some projects, which has been exciting...
I've been trying to make a short anaglyph 3d Pre visualization with little success, but I'll get it working in the end said captain optimism.

I animated a short toon about 2 fighting gladiators in February and I've been wanting to finish it for a while, but organising music for it has been difficult. But I'm happy to say the project its up and running again =) Now I have one of my own projects on that crazy todo list of myne =).

Last night I was on an expedition with the Shock crew to check out the shoots location, which was cool and exciting. I'll post some pictures when I get them sorted out =).

I animated a terribly caricatured Nicolas Cage

The lesson I learnt (again) is never to start animating with just the head, get the keys and strong gestures first =).

And yes, if only I built something in minecraft my week will be fulfilled... but It'll have to wait untill next week =)

Thanks for reading =)

Stand back boys i'm painting

I don't usually venture into trying to complete my drawings or adding details, so I thought I would give it a try. We have a pitch for Viko the Viking due in a few weeks and the judges consist of 3 females... so I present to thee a female friendly Viko the Viking poster =)

His ship sails the clouds as he travels the lands in search of fame, fortune and a hearty meal of course

Apart from that I've been working on my todo list and decided to take a day off and play some minecraft =) playing on a SMP server with no hacks =0 which is a new challenge and mining gets very addictive.

on with it =)
