It's basically a homage to the first 40 seconds of this opening:

You will of course be credited and will be invited to the NG Project. Your help will allow me to focus on the animation n junk. if thats not okay with you then thats fine, please dont apply

Earlier this week Duncan & Jones 2 came out! If you haven't already, go watch it here:



I thought I'd do a little blog thing and talk about the making of this one, I would've done this sooner but I'm currently in the process of trying to get the PC I built to work, so I'm kinda stressed out atm lol.


Anyway, this one took 4 months to make, which is much shorter than the rough 7 or so months I spent on the first one. Which is funny cuz I think this one is much higher quality than the first, guess that shows improvement, but also mostly I think better management of time. I've gotten better more efficient at doing things, I hope I can carry that out in the

future to make episodes faster.


It also helped that I didn't have to work on a full 1 minute animated intro that I don't even like anymore lol, I didn't use it in this one because I think it's already outdated, and I didn't want to extend the length of the cartoon with something that I personally would skip every time.


So yeah, things went alot smoother this time. I wrote the script, did the voices and started work on the animatic. One of the first things I did was do up some model/design idea sheets for the new guys that'd appear in this episode.


iu_77992_6376162.png

These are some (horrible) first sketches for Doogle. I was originally gonna go for more of tough-guy kinda scum fella, the type of guy you'd see walkin around Dublin wearing a beanie. Then I changed my mind and decided to go for more of a weirdo/loser anime type guy. These sketches are kind of like those two ideas meeting together in the middle, and it's gross.


iu_77993_6376162.png

Here's where I think I nailed the final design down. I really liked the idea of this mysterious, intimidating edgy lookin guy that seems all cool, but then you realise ''Oh, his name is fuckin DOOGLE, this guys a loser''. And he is.


iu_77994_6376162.png

Here's the initial sketches for the big dude. He literally doesn't have a name, in the script I just referred to him as ''BIG FUCK''. I remember showing these sketches to my dad, and all he said was ''That's Ninja Turtles''. I was so confused at first but then I realised that this guy does kinda look like some Ninja Turtles character. He's not an important character at all so I guess it doesn't really matter lol


iu_77995_6376162.png

Here's the sheet for those two thugs that appear alongside Big Fuck (I think we started calling him Brock or something actually? Idk). Flash glitched out and didn't let me fully colour the guy on the right so that's why that's like that hehe. I do wanna take up a philosophy where no matter how minute a background character is, I want him to have somewhat of a unique design. I don't mean overly-design everyone, but just make them not look plain and with no thought put into em, ya dig? I wanna take this up more in future episodes for sure.


iu_77996_6376162.png

And finally here's the robot guy. Not much to say about this one, just designed a simple robot that I thought would be easy enough to animate while still lookin kinda cool.


You might have noticed that Duncan & Jones's designs have also changed slightly. This is just to make them more bouncy and expressive, I think it looks alot more pleasing. Similarly, something I wanna improve on is making the animation more fun to watch and expressive in general, while not using a million frames. I look to inspirations like Lupin III or stuff that Trigger does in anime like Kill la Kill, dynamic poses, using limited animation to the effect of comedy, all sorts of stuff like that I wanna employ to make it so that I can pump episodes out in a somewhat decent time-frame while also keep it fun to look at. I also wanna try and make some shorter episodes, so keep an eye out for that.


In general, I'm gonna make sure things start to run more smoothly. We had a few issues on the audio side with this one when we first published, @dogl and @ninjamuffin99 got into a few disagreements with the audio mixing and music, I heard Cam ended up punching Dogls girlfriend and they don't talk to eachother anymore or something? I dunno, point is we got it fixed eventually and we replaced the NG file so it's all good. I was just too giddy and uploaded the cartoon before Cam got a chance to hear Dogls final audio render, that's another thing I need to work on lol, PATIENCE.


I have a ton of inspirations. Stuff like @ChutneyGlaze's cartoons or @aalong64's Sublo & Tangy Mustard series, while they don't inspire Duncan & Jones directly, just the fact that these independent creators are making their own original web-cartoons on a consistent basis really inspires me, and I wanna get to that level someday. I think Duncan & Jones is a very flexible format, and I wanna use it as a catalyst to try new things and improve.


As for more direct inspirations, as you can probably tell, alot of buddy-cop stuff and action movies. Also weirdly, Eurobeat. It mightn't be so prevalent now but for the world and action and stuff, I wanna inject more Eurobeat flavour into it, if that makes any sense. No, no it doesn't. WHATEVER. I also wanna get better at backgrounds n stuff so I can make the world look all cool and futurey, not necessarily cyberpunk, but I want alot of neon and electronics.


And that's about all I have to say about that. This year was very good for me I think. I'm always so thankful for Newgrounds and my friends on here, for giving me the opportunities to make what I love. Seriously, @TomFulp and the rest of the NG team, can't thank ye enough.


This ended up being a very long post so if you read it all, thank you! Look forward to more Duncan & Jones in the future, 2020 should be a good year. Christmas Special? Yes. Halloween Special? Yes. Pico Day Special? Hell yeah, I wanna do all of those eventually lmao. But not all in one year obviously


Thanks for reading, and thanks for watching my cartoons. Have a Merry Christmas Newgrounds!!

Hey hey Newgrounds,


I've been doing a whole bunch of junk all over the place so I've decided to make a lil news post just to round stuff up. First off!


ShoeNan


I helped my friend @Carmet with his new cartoon. I wrote some lil jokes and even did a terrible voice for it. Go watch it, it's great!



A Couple of Crickets


I was apart of the latest A Couple of Crickets podcast, it was a community episode where they had me and and a bunch of other cool people call in and do little interviews! PsychoGoldfish said it ruined everything he liked about the podcast, so that's how you know it's really good.



Animation


I released a tiny SuperMega animation last week, it's nothing much but I had fun making it. Also, it's frontpaged now? wtf? And ShoeNan is gone? god damn it newgrounds



I also released the intro to Duncan & Jones, that's nice.


Collabs, collabs, collabs


Christ I overdosed on these. I was apart of the Rawest Forest Collab which was pretty cool, and I'm also apart of an upcoming Ninja Sex Party collab, so look out for that.





That's it I think! I'm still working on Duncan & Jones, there really isn't anything new I can say about that, It's being made and it's taking forever, but it'll be out. Eventually.


I love you Newgrounds and also DRINK WATER!!

And I don't know how I'll get them OUT''

Happy New Year's and all that NG!!

look forward to some juicy stuff from me in 2019, including my next cartoon, Duncan & Jones

Episode One of a new web series I'm doing, that's right, Episode One

remember this piece of shit I did back in December last year?

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/703691

 

yeah I don't know what the fuck that is either, I made it and I still have no idea what I was thinking. the way you can't hear any of the voice acting and how there's virtually no sound effects and the ones that are there are way too loud. the reasoning behind all that actually is because I tried doing all the Sound FX in Flash back when I was doing it, but when I tried exporting it as a .SWF there was just too much shit in the flash file that it would not export. So I panicked and got rid of all .wav files (besides the voice acting) and downloaded this weird free piece of shit video editor thing that I didn't know how to use and did all the sound FX there.

And well I mean, you can see how all that turned out.

anyways, that cartoon is an embarassment that I would honestly rather just completely forget about, so chronologically I'll be counting it as Episode 0 of Duncan & Jones. the pilot, but not really even.

 

with that out of the way, now that I feel I'm better equipped as an animator and that I know more about this stuff in general now, I've been working on the animatic for THE REAL Duncan & Jones for about three months approx. now, and I just completed it earlier this month. I'm honestly very proud of it so far and I'm having alot of fun doing the animation. so far it stands to be about 7 minutes long, without the 45 seconds ish intro animation! my longest thingy yet..

6376162_154630380163_duncan.gif

 Some snippits from the animatic, please excuse the colours, Flash 8 never likes exporting nice colours into gifs for some reason

 

as I'm animating the first cartoon I've begun writing the second one, It's honestly the most fun shit, I love putting in all these jokes I've had in my head and writing these funny little stories and I can't wait for everyone to see them. I have to thank @HenryEYES and @Carmet for helping me animating and cleaning up some shots and making the production a bit faster.

my good friend @Thriftman is voicing Jones as always and @doggenhausen is voicing a new character too, they've both done fantastic jobs and they deserve your hugs and kisses.

 

Well anyways, that's about it. if you've read all this then thank you! and look forward to Duncan & Jones, debuting this year!

At last! Never again will I have to wake up in a cold sweat at 2am with the reminder that I have under 100 Newgrounds fans.


I can now obtain a College education, thank you guys.


Obtaining 100 fans has also allowed me to unlock the ability to pee upwards.


The Gorillaz asked me to animate their next music video, but I instead requested to replace their lead singer. They accepted.


I beat Metroid Zero Mission.


Donald Trump called me in for a meeting, in which he asked me to make out with him. He tasted great.


My wife left me.


But I got a better one now! She's cool.


I owe it all to you guys. Thank you. Who knows what'll happen at 200 fans? Maybe I can finally beat Donkey Kong Country.

So I made a new cartoon, but it's not on Newgrounds. In fact, it's not even on my channel. Yeah, I worked with JimmyRS and made a cartoon for his channel, so you can check that out below.

Anyway, time to get to work on another cartoon for Newgrounds..
