Posted by MasterHand4444 - 2 days ago


Hey everyone, just wanted to give an update on the projects I’m currently working on!


First and foremost is Christmas in July ‘24. It’s coming along nicely! Be sure to sign up before sign-ups close in a few days!


Second, I’ve been working on my second EP - a very, very special one that’ll be a gift for someone. I’ve already spent $100 on its production lol…that will launch in September!


Third, I’ve recently started on my THIRD album / EP project, which will consist of reimagined songs I made up as a kid / teenager. No ETA on it yet.


Fourth, I’m composing another game mod OST - not FNF this time, though! That’ll be out when it’s out, lol.


Lastly (that I feel like sharing here), I’ve got a small but fun music competition idea planned for next month - with a comedically small amount of money on the line! Keep your eyes peeled for that!


Thank you everyone for all of your support - I’m incredibly grateful for folks who listen to my music!

Da Works

“Da Works” will be me going over three works from this month that especially stood out to me here on NG. It may be popular stuff that I want to celebrate even more, or it may be more lesser known things that I think need a bit more love. Who knows! Anyways, here’s da works for this month.


Da first work from last month is “2 Kitties” by @DicesNSlices! I really enjoy these designs for these two characters - this art just feels very cute and sweet to me, and I think the idea was very well executed. That’s all I have to say LOL


Da second is “rudebustrr” by @TheReq, which is a Rude Buster remix that is sexy in its simplicity. The instrument choices and the decision to not go overboard with the remix works a lot in its favor, and I think this is an instance where not remixing the entire song works in a track’s favor. Seriously fantastic interpretation of such an iconic track.


Da third and final work is “NG Dublin Meetup 2024 / 12 / A200” by @Aalasteir! This is a very fun and energetic recap of Aalasteir’s experience in Ireland at the Dublin Pico Day meet! Give it a listen if you can; it’s a short podcast but an informative and interesting one!


Da Spotlight

This segment is meant to celebrate the cool users on the site who I just think are plain awesome.


Da first spotlight goes to @mihar34! mihar34 is an artist who typically draws multimedia fanart of characters from FNF, MLP, Madness, and more. His style is saturated with rich and fun colors, and the way he draws characters makes you acutely aware of the shapes each character consists of in a way that I can’t fully describe - it’s such a cool style, let me know if you see it too after you check out mihar34’s full gallery!


Da second spotlight belongs to @DaThugWizard, who has mastered PhantomArcade’s art style in all of its charming glory while still injecting a great deal of personality. Def peep his X / Twitter to check out his original (currently in early development) game inspired by FNF called Underground Rapper!


Da News

It’s time for da news! Here I’ll share some exciting or interesting news posts from around Newgrounds.


Plenty of users had Pico Day stories! Check out a handful of them here:

Da Rest

May has been slow but good! After graduating, I’ve just been keeping my head down and working, both at my Real Job [TM] and on my projects. Been doing a lot of fun music stuff, both deliberately and spontaneously. Still need to start learning how to draw…


My Pico Day track is one of my favorite things I’ve put out in recent memory; go check it out if you haven’t yet!

Yesterday, I finished my last college class and got my grades finalized. I graduate on Saturday. (The FNF update was a great grad present, let me tell you!)


Next week, to celebrate this chapter of my life closing, I will be posting a 5 song EP called "Loose Ends" containing two old songs and three new ones to Newgrounds and Bandcamp. I hope you enjoy it.


I'm also working on a good few collabs, including Christmas in July (which you can join!), a song for Pico Day featuring four other musicians, and multiple other projects that will keep me busy creatively.


Frontpage blogs will resume on June 1st. Thank you for your patience.


That's all! I hope you're having a great year so far.

Hello vro…


Would like to announce that May will not have a frontpage blog. I graduate college very soon and ya boy’s gotta LOCK THE HECK IN!!!!! So I won’t have much time to get any creative stuff done, unfortunately…


However once summer starts we gonna get crazy. Christmas in July collab will hopefully pop off (musicians and artists and voice actors please join), and I’ve got a few other things rattling around on both my brain and my hard drive that are just itching to be put out into the world…like this! Take the third song from VS. 9090 as a consolation ;P



So! With that said, thanks for your support and readership. Writing FP blogs for y’all is a treat and I love being able to further engage with the wider NG community. It’s no secret that NG has helped carry me through college, giving me a creative outlet unlike any I’ve had before. I’m very thankful for this site, these people, and this warm reception to my ideas and thoughts.


So I’ll see you guys in June with another FP blog! Remember to join Christmas in July — let’s make this the biggest NG audio collab of the summer!


(BTW if any of you would like to be featured in the interview section of the blog, let me know!!!)


(BTW also, I’m trying to brainstorm ideas to help next year’s collab album stand out from the previous ones…I’m open to suggestions, including ones that have nothing to do with Christmas!)

“Da Works” will be me going over three works from this month that especially stood out to me here on NG. It may be popular stuff that I want to celebrate even more, or it may be more lesser known things that I think need a bit more love. Who knows! Anyways, here’s da works for this month.


Da first work from last month is "Aderlass" by @yCarl0! This piece speaks for itself entirely - my words won't do it justice. What a beautiful piece.


Da second is "AhWham / 25 / A100" by @Aalasteir, featuring @AhWham! This podcast episode is a brilliant look into the mind and philosophy of one of NG's hardest working collab organizers, directed masterfully by Aalasteir into a funny, heartwarming, and intellectually stimulating conversation. PLEASE give it a listen!


Da third and final work is "Crossette" by @sparkymessi, recommended to me by @xanxoepico! This track is incredibly fun and energetic, and just puts me in a great mood. The driving bass, vocal samples, and drum breaks all compliment each other nicely in a lovely piece that doesn't overstay its welcome. A great tune overall!


Da Spotlight

This segment is meant to celebrate the cool users on the site who I just think are plain awesome.


Da first spotlight goes to @shroeshrock! shroeshrock has a style consisting of rough linework and rounded shapes, giving his work a grungy but approachable feeling. Featuring a great deal of fandom-related artwork, shroeshrock brings new life to already beloved characters with loose yet clearly definable design work, showing an understanding of anatomy - and how to properly distort it to great effect. Go check out his gallery!


Da second spotlight belongs to @tom-atom, recommended to me by @SamaadBae5! tom-atom is a composer who does a lot of VGM work and whose music is very reminiscent of tracks from an era I’m sure many of you reading are nostalgic for. The jazz influence is laid on thick with tom-atom’s tracks, with a plethora of progressions, percussion patterns, and groovy basslines that scratch my brain in just the right way. Seriously go check out their work!

This is a segment where I send some interview questions to a cool NG user and showcase their answers!


This month, I interviewed @Ditchu, a pixel artist and pixel animator most well known for his DELTARUNE fan creations! With an incredibly detailed and distinct style, Ditchu is absolutely a modern NG artist icon in my eyes. I hope you enjoy this interview!

Interviews are presented as-received with no edits unless otherwise specified.


What are the main inspirations you draw from in your work?


When I first started doing pixel art, I can definitely say that one of my biggest inspirations was Temmie Chang, her work on UNDERTALE at the time really solidified a presence in my mind that I can't really forget. But throughout the years, I've been sort of * absorbing * quite a lot of inspirations when developing my own art style.


MoawlingAshley NicholsSAINTTUFA, and ceno0 are ones that come to mind, but there are many others for sure-- I would say that I've been trying to lean on making my pixel art break the conventional way that pixel art is usually drawn (like the classic 8-bit and 16-bit), so the viewer has a "HOW IS THIS IN PIXEL ART!" surreal feeling.


How did you discover Newgrounds?


When I was a kid actually-- but *because of my mom catching me watching Madness Combat I was blocked from ever using it again--*. I only remembered it existed once FNF got popularized, and my mind raced to that ancient childhood memory and I realized I can finally see what I've been missing. And honestly, *I did miss quite a lot*. The wonderful, almost immediate positive response from the Newgrounds community to my art really made me feel welcomed tho, and now as I use it more and more, it feels like this is one of the best places for an artist to be in.


What’s your favorite thing you’ve submitted to Newgrounds?


Everyone believes that it would be my countless DR: Minis, where I make a crossover between a game that I like, with DELTARUNE-- but the things I enjoy more are my animations, like Distant-ssaura and UNDERTALE's Intro Remade.


They are so fun to make, write and produce, *if they weren't such troublemakers to do I would have made a thosaund more by now--*. If we are talking souly about which art of mine is my favorite, that would definitely go to Death Bun-ttle | Empowered-- One of my best work ever!


What’s your favorite color?


Now, look at me. *Isn't it obvious that it is pink*


What’s your LEAST favorite color?


Green--

*I don't know what it is, but I can't wrap my brain around it, how do I use it properly*


Give a shoutout to one Newgrounds user!


So many to choose-- but from my mind right now, I would say @Notakin. Their work with Fighting Games styled pixel art is fantastic, and it's something not many people can make it right like they can--!


What’s your message to the NG community?


Never stop doing what you think it's fun!-- Whatever you make, rather being art, music or writing, make it because you love what you are doing. For the longest time, I've been focusing too much on the numbers and algorithms that the world pushes down on everyone, but once I realized how that impacted my enjoyment of drawing and making art, I switched into focusing on just making what I find fun. If I can make myself laugh or feel happy from my own drawing, then that's enough for me, and I think you should think like that too.


Da Rest

March was a rather interesting month for me. I finally wrapped up the music for the FNF mod I’ve been working on for a while - plus made a few unrelated Funkin’ tracks - I’ve just been very funk-pilled recently in case y’all couldn’t tell. Also had some highs and lows in my personal life, but it’s all chill homie. Entering my final month of undergrad - it cannot be over with fast enough LOL.


I'm excited for what April has in store! I hope y'all liked my April Fools thing ;P


That’s it for this month’s frontpage blog! Thank you very much for reading.

Da Intro

Howdy and hello, folks, and welcome to the tenth monthly blog post. Double digits, baby!!!


February was a pretty cool month for NG, I think! That’s all I have to say, really lol. Let’s get into the stuff and things!


Just as a disclaimer: I’ll only be showcasing submissions rated E or rated T. I have the M and A ratings turned off for my account, so if a user I showcase here has submissions with those ratings on their account, I may not know about it. Viewer discretion is advised and all that!

Da Works

“Da Works” will be me going over three works from this month that especially stood out to me here on NG. It may be popular stuff that I want to celebrate even more, or it may be more lesser known things that I think need a bit more love. Who knows! Anyways, here’s da works for this month.


Da first work from last month is “3 years since the accident” by @NateAnim8, which serves as not only a great art piece (excellent usage of colors, fantastic composition, and great use of thematic/symbolic elements), but an excellent retrospective on a character that exploded (lol) in popularity - for better and for worse. Please give that retrospective a read (and check out that sweet artwork) if you haven’t already.


Da second is “please dont listen to this song” by @AZALI00013 - sorry for disobeying the title but this track is way too catchy not to share! I originally heard this through an Instagram ad of all things, and then learning that AZALI has a Newgrounds meant I needed all of y’all to hear it as well. Using “memeish” samples to create something genuinely catchy is always a treat, IMO, and this track is a prime example of this.


Da third and final work is “Rise Above!” by @MattMoney, recommended to me by @xanxoepico! This track is a heavy anthem about rising up against all odds. Fantastic guitar work combined with a very fun vibe overall make this track a great listen. The nearly five minute track felt like it flew by thanks to its powerful energy.


…and breaking format this month, the fourth and truly final featured work is “heart hands” by @SamaadBae5, recommended to me by @Tritnew! The floaty feeling the track gives you has all the same energy of that floaty feeling you get when you’re with someone you care about, and that feeling being captured here is genuinely impressive. The mixing on this track is phenomenal, and the “I luv u :3” makes me smile real wide lol.


Da Spotlight

This segment is meant to celebrate the cool users on the site who I just think are plain awesome.


Da first spotlight goes to @Astrawitch, a pixel artist with a breathtaking style. They way they render effects and backgrounds is like eye candy, and it compliments the characters wonderfully. Be sure to check out their website for some fun prints and stickers!


Da second spotlight belongs to @TeffyD, organizer of last month’s uber popular NG Mall Music Collab! TeffyD is a highly capable musician capable of composing in multiple genres, and has a knack for great mixing and energetic tunes. Check out their website for more info!

Da People

This is a segment where I send some interview questions to a cool NG user and showcase their answers!


This month, I interviewed @Sony-Shock, an artist whose work you might have seen on the frontpage before! With a captivating style I can only describe as “flowing like a river” similar to watercolor paintings, Sony-Shock’s work is best experienced firsthand. I hope you enjoy this interview!

Interviews are presented as-received with no edits unless otherwise specified. Some links have been added to mentions of media.


What are the main inspirations you draw from in your work?


Inspiration is a pretty abstract thing to talk about! Usually people brings other artist's work first so for me some that come to mind are Demizu Posuka, Inu Curry and Kaneoya Sachiko as artists that really inspire me. Oh, and Kawayoo, too, who is my favorite Pokemon TCG artist.

Aside from that, I remember taking one of these tests you find around on the internet to find about 'what emotion inspires you' and I got nostalgia, which resonated with me.

When I'm working for myself, I often draw things that align with the ache I feel in my heart when I remember Spain (my home country), as well as my childhood. For me nostalgia is a feeling that fills me with uncertainty and dread, but in a comfortable way. Have you ever seen liminal spaces and your body fills with 'emptiness you've grown used to'? That is the best way I have to describe [it]

And lastly, at times I just draw things with the intention of creating 'not a better version, just a version I'd like' of something. I'm very self-serving in that sense.


How did you discover Newgrounds?


I can't say I remember! I feel Newgrounds has been a site I've known in the back of my mind for forever. One of these many sites I could not afford to browse freely because I was either not internet-savvy enough, or because my method of accessing the internet was the friggin DSi internet browser (this is true!).

I do remember when I decided to join, however! I had just moved to USA. I felt disconnected from my usual internet activities, as well as the world. For a few weeks, I kept it secret to others that I was here and that gave me back a sense of control.


What’s your favorite thing you’ve submitted to Newgrounds?


I post almost the exact same things I post to any other website so this is almost like asking me what is the favorite thing I've created!

Now, there's some stuff I only feel comfortable posting here... Would that be it? Nah... I think it'd be my Papercut webcomic. I spent a lot of time organizing it before newgrounds got it's multi-image update so there's this special investment on it.

Also my animation 'Croma's magical transformation'. I don't animate very often, so posting it here felt like a bit of a test. I feel the fact it has a lower score than my usual art postings is humbling


What’s your favorite color?


BROWN! I love brown with a passion since Professor Layton rearranged my brain.

It used to be yellow, but I guess, like my soul, it darkened with time.


What’s your LEAST favorite color?


Orange. It's like brown, but actually the worst and I'm objectively right about this.

I think learning it is used to incite people to buy in corporate environments influenced my opinion too. This might be wrong, however, I read it many years ago. My reasons to hate orange really are 99% bias.


Give a shoutout to one Newgrounds user!


I'm going to be a bit cheeky and say @DIGIMIN! Despite being a big professional artist I could have found out in many other ways, I vividly remember finding them through Newgrounds first, completely unaware of their other work, which is a bit funny.


What’s your message to the NG community?


You're all very cool!! I love checking Newgrounds more than any other site, and I hope the site becomes the main place for artists once Twitter burns to flame because it's so much easier to follow people here 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏


Da Rest

February treated me well! This was my first Valentine’s Day to be with someone and I won’t bore you with what all I bought her (I made sure to do good lol), but @confetticuddles got me the LEGO rose bouquet set and it’s been very fun putting them together when I have the time to.


I also did two submissions for upcoming (at the time of writing) collabs, so I hope you’ll look forward to those. One is a song, the other was me writing, and the writing was a fun challenge because I hadn’t seriously written a story in a while…I hope y’all enjoy that!


That’s it for this month’s frontpage blog! Thank you very much for reading. Shoutout again to xanxoepico and Tritnew for recommending me stuff to feature for Da Works; I seriously appreciated the help. If anyone has any recommendations for stuff they want me to cover in future blogs, hit my PMs!! “FP Blog Mail!!”


Also - for any interested musicians (as well as a few artists and voice actors), please remember to sign up for the Christmas in July Collab Album ‘24! Applications are open until June 27th but are first come, first serve - sign up today!

Hey everyone, I decided to make some FNAF YouTooz themed valentines! I don’t usually post about it here, but those who know me more personally may know that I am a huge FNAF fan as well as a YouTooz collector. I figured this’d be a cute, seasonally appropriate way to express that.


You can download the valentines on my GameJolt (where I do most of my FNAF posting lol); link below! I hope you enjoy them.
