We're all on livestream at the moment. Hania and Jazza are doing a music collab and I'm animating the clip. View it all happening here! http://www.livestream.com/jazzastudios
We'll post our creations here on NG when we're finished :)
We've wrapped up 24 in 24, and we're currently compiling everything together. It's a much bigger job than we initially anticipated, so it's still a few hours away (for those that I had told that we'd get the video out soon after completion)
Will put it up on NG as soon as it's ready
Hania and I are doing 24 animations in 24 hours, and you can watch live on Stickam here: http://www.stickam.com/24in24
Come and watch and let us know your ideas. We'll credit you as inspiration if we use your idea.
You can also follow our progress on Twitter: https://twitter.com/jameslee03
Hope to see you there :)
Just posting a quick update to let everyone know that I'm still alive and working on new projects. I have two completed films called 'Purged' and 'Short & Sweet' which I'll be preparing for release over the coming couple of months. The bulk of my time has been spent preparing for a currently secret project which I'll be announcing around September.
Aside from keeping busy and laying low I got myself a Twitter account which you can follow here: http://twitter.com/jameslee03
Hopefully next time I post I'll have a new film released :)
Hania woke me up at 8AM today to watch the awards live on stickam - it was a shock to see that both of us had come away with Tank Award each! I can't tell you how grateful the two of us are for the awards! I've been coming to NG since I was making stick figure Flash's in highschool, and this place has always been a huge source of inspiration to continuously improve my animating skills.
It's been a long time coming, but we finally knuckled down this week to finish off the soundtrack release of Tarboy.
Some of the tracks have been extended, but what I'm excited about is the new remastered 'Two's a Party' which ended up at 3 minutes in length. Hania put a lot of work into it this, writing new material for it. She's also included some concept music for Tarboy II.
There's also another CD of bonus tracks, for those that are interested in hearing more concept music that Hania created for Tarboy I - and some different variations on the existing music.
The albums are free, but you're welcome to donate. It would be greatly appreciated :)
In other news, I'm reworking the Tarboy site from scratch as a Wordpress blog, hence why our latest updates and releases have come through Hania's blog. Once it's up and running, this should give me much more flexibility to update as I'd like to a lot more in the future.
After a few months of Newgrounds/Tarboy inactivity, I thought I'd give a brief rundown on whats new and where I'm at.
Latest news is I've posted Popstar to youtube:
Lately freelance work has consumed most of my time so all of my creative projects have taken a back seat for a few months. Good news is that from March I'll be back into working on my own stuff, and getting started on a larger, top secret project that's Tarboy related. :P
If all goes well I'll have something Tarboy related out by the end of the year. Before then I plan on releasing two other films that have been finished for a while, one which was created before Tarboy, and another I finished last year.
Aside from that, there's still a bunch o' other stuff that I promised which is way past it's due date (tarboy store, shirts, album soundtrack etc)- They'll be out at some point, just don't give your hopes up that they'll be out any time soon :P
Below's a WIP painting Ive been doing - I'm thinking of introducing some more painterly elements into Tarboy, might make a nice contrast against the crisp vector graphics?
We have three Tarboy shirt designs currently getting printed, and I thought I'd make a news post letting people know. We only have a limited amount, so if anyone's keen to make sure they get one, email the following details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Which shirt design
There shirts will be ready in about two weeks. We'll be uploading photos so that you can confirm your order after you've seen them. Payment will be available through our online store, credit cards and paypal will be accepted.
Check out THIS LINK for the selection and details.
The Tarboy soundtrack will also be available to download on the same day the shirts are out.
I've taken note of all the comments about the shirt designs, and we've condensed it down to these 4 most popular designs (please view it large to see it in detail) I've included the image from my avatar, which quite a few people had suggested.
So if you could please let us know which of these 1 or 2 are your most favorite, that would help us select our final designs for print!
Thanks everyone for commenting!
It's been a while posting because we've been hard at work getting the music of Tarboy ready for release. We've also been getting some designs together to start printing Tarboy t-shirts!
We can only run with 2 designs (3 max) so we just want to gauge which of these designs are the most popular. Could you please view all of the designs in larger detail here and let us know which one or two would make the best shirt? If you don't like any, let us know why :)
In case anyone's wondering, there will be women's shirts as well. :)
