GoodL's News

Posted by GoodL - 17 hours ago


FlowDownStream Season 2 premieres February 23, 2019. One week from today.

Here is the trailer for the upcoming episode:



We hope to see you there. I'd like to say thank you to the Newgrounds community for all the support we received in the first season, and I really hope you all enjoy the second season even more! We've got a lot of things planned and we're using a new system for developing the episodes that should hopefully bring the series to new heights.


If you're not familiar with the series, you can check it out on our page here on Newgrounds. We are an art collective that formed here on NG; I am very privileged to work with a such a wonderful team of like-minded individuals.


The majority of the music in the show (as well as in the trailer above) is made by Sro (@DoctaBGL) who just happened to drop a great new album last month that you can listen to on bandcamp.


In other news, the podcast @littlbox and I have been doing weekly (A Couple Of Crickets) has had the pleasure of featuring some lovely guests recently, including @DoctaBGL, @PoliWall (briefly including special guests @BarfBart and Dad Wyrick), and most recently @WillSpencer. We include a "Newgrounds Spotlights" section in every episode, in which we give shoutouts to our favourite submissions every week, and then we generally proceed to talk about movies, cartoons, music, and the like. We'll be having @CzySzy on the podcast next week!


That's all for now. Tune in to FlowDownStream on Saturday, February 23rd at 5 PM Eastern Time. See ya there!

Figured I should make a little post welcoming in the new year. 2018 was by far my most active year I've had on Newgrounds since I started coming here in ~2012. I'm pretty proud of my collection of work from last year and I hope to surpass it again this year. A pretty big milestone for me was hitting 100 followers, which I know isn't a lot, but it sure is meaningful for me. FlowDownStream did much better than I ever could have expected, and we're starting Season 2 in February, which I expect to do even better. We've got some wonderful new team members and the first episode is already looking very promising! Most of my creative output for the foreseeable future is going to be FDS-related, but I am currently working on a fun little podcast with @littlbox called "A Couple of Crickets"!

Here's a fun thing that has happened to FlowDownStream recently: I made a frontpage post from the FDS account a few days ago, and within 25 minutes it got its first reaction. Also, for 2 whole days, its only reaction. Sounds like it would be a bit of a bummer, right? But look who the reaction is from:

Tom was also one of the first followers we had on the FDS account, and I can't even begin to describe how amazing that is to me. His support really means more to me than I could ever put to words.

Just a few more things I'd like to say here:
First of all, on January 18th my friend and frequent collaborator Sro (@DoctaBGL) is putting out a new album titled "wot". It's definitely something you're going to want to check out if you like trippy, mind-bending music. He makes most of the music in FlowDownStream and also provided the soundtrack (the only good part, lol) of my first game, Platform Picasso. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. You can follow him on his website, his Twitter, and his Bandcamp.

@littlbox is working on a full feature-length film called "Talentless", which is a massively exciting project. Keep up to date with its production from his website.

And I guess that's all that I really care to write about at the moment. Thanks to everyone here on NG for making this such an awesome community for small artists. Best place on the web, by far. I couldn't be happier to see how well Newgrounds is doing right now, with the flood of new artists and the supporter milestones, not to mention all the great site updates. I can't wait to see it continue growing and improving.

Thanks again.
-GG

First new animation from me in months. It's just a little thing I put together for fun. My girlfriend's been talking about babies a lot lately, so I thought maybe I'd shed some light on how I feel about those horrible little monst...babies.

Hope to round off the year (my most productive year on Newgrounds since I've been around) with a couple more maybe little shorts like this one, and for those of you who follow FlowDownStream - at least one more episode as well. 
Thanks, NG. Love ya.
-GG

Hello, Newgrounds!

I am very excited to announce that I've just released my first game on NG ever! Now, I know "first game" is often a big red flag, but I am really pleased with how this little project turned out!
It's called "Platform Picasso" because it's a platformer in which you have to paint various types of platforms in order to reach the end of each of the 15 levels. 
There is also a "free play" mode, where you get infinite paint to play around with, or to draw, or to do whatever you want, it is "free" play, after all!
If you make anything cool in free play, I'd love to see screenshots! The Platform Picasso Discord server has a channel called "creation-sharing" specifically for sharing screenshots from the game, 
feel free to stop by: https://discord.gg/E4TwMwz

Here are some screenshots from the game:

Many thanks to @DoctaBGL for providing the lovely soundtrack. 
Check out https://sromuchsound.bandcamp.com/ for more tunes.

Also huge thank-you's to the awesome beta-testers:

Thank you @Kolumbo for your help and support.

Today marks a pretty major milestone for FlowDownStream. We just published our 10th episode, a Newgrounds special made up mostly of our team's Bad Dream Jam clips (with some fresh extra bits). 7 out of our first 9 episodes have received daily awards (including one Daily Feature) and one episode even got frontpaged! The success we've seen so far makes me very hopeful for the future of this project. I've never been more proud of anything I've made, so thank you so much to all of you here on NG who have shown such lovely support (special shout out to @Cyberdevil and @The-Mariner ). I also want to thank the entire FlowDownTeam, y'all do some amazing work, it's been a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to continuing to do so.

Haven't been posting about the new FDS uploads for a while now because I ran out of fresh gifs (or stopped making them, rather). So, here's some news and a new gif!
FlowDownStream has some special plans for the pieces our team is making for the summer jams, which is real exciting, so keep an eye out for the next FDS episode coming out on June 30th!
Throughtout the course of the jams, my main goal is to work on perspective animation (hence this new gif, in which I also practiced some frame-by-frame stuff). I did that a bit with my submission to the Bad Dream Jam, which you can check out at the link below if you haven't seen it yet, but I hope to do even more than the little bit I did there.

Anyway here's the new gif. Probably the first forward-facing walk cycle I've ever done:
