Great Destiny Man 2 is on its way, I'm thinking it will take a few more weeks, and will hopefully be up here early-mid July.
Thankyou again to Newgrounds who is sponsoring this glorious and noble film.
I didn't think I'd make another Great Destiny Man because I had so much trouble drawing the weapons and the backgrounds last time, but I found that I kept having ideas for him. I'm finding this one a lot easier than the first one, 18 months of practice has made a difference.
In other news, I recently tried to grow a glorious manwhore beard. It got as long as the photo below, but my girlfriend complained every day and eventually I caved in and trimmed it. Just between you and me, eating was getting a little challenging.
Also, I've put a new song up. Well its not new at all, but I realised I'd never put it up here.
Some guys over on the GreasyMoose forum are making a Pleasure Island RPG with RPG Maker 2003, and we're looking for anyone who might be interested in contributing:
Stages (i'm told the program is easy to use)
Music (strictly in midi format)
Monster and battle sprites
You play as Fernando, and your task is to regain your glorious squidhunting spear.
Here's a playable demo of the first couple of stages of the game. Give it a whirl.
(installation notes: The options will be all like ?????????????????? and ??????????????????. The one on the left is continue, the one on the right is cancel. You can set the path and whatever. Defaultly it will be under ProgramFiles>rpg2003>Pleasure Island and then run RPG_RT. You may have to give it a moment, it takes a few seconds to start.)
So just to be clear, this is not a flash game that will be appearing on Newgrounds. This will end up as an executable file that anyone can download.
Here's the thread on the forum if you want to learn more. If you want to contribute, sign up and talk to Velex, he's the guy co-ordinating it.
A few people have asked for the lyrics:
Gaze into my chocolate eyes
Let my music sterilise
Give to me your hard earned coin
I'll share with you my tortured groin
What you're feeling is not weird
You want to burrow in my beard
Gaze upon my chiselled abs
I no longer have the crabs
My rhymes will grab you by the throat
And ride you like a sturdy goat
I will drown you in my scent
with or without your consent
I am a whore of some renown
Your buttocks are my hunting ground
I am a manwhore without peer
Absorbing sex from the atmosphere
Pressure building like a cyst
I want to share with you love's fist
I'll lick your feet, I'll wear a collar
I'll do anything for a dollar
I will fit you like a glove
More precious than a father's love
not that i would really know
I like my women rich and young
The kiss of yoghurt on my tongue
I wield a fleshy latin sword
Raptor jesus is my lord
Let me be your phantom limb
Crack and yoghurt keeps me slim.
Struggling with modernity
A whore for all eternity
I have cast my vote, and shame upon everyone who didn't try to influence my decisions with vast sums of money. You have to live with yourselves now.
Yet again Tom Fulp has conferred a huge amount of personal power to me and asked me to be a judge for the tank awards.
Given that with this honour comes a huge amount of influence and responsibility, and that I have demonstrated in the past that I am willing to wield this power without a shred of fairness and objectivity, I am a little surprised by the complete lack of offers of bribery I have received. There is still a few days to remedy this situation.
What are your picks?
I'm working on a sequel of sorts to Dance of the Manwhore. I should have it done in 2 weeks or so, but it may be a little longer. I am proud to say I am making it with the help of a Newgrounds sponsorship!
In the true spirit of method acting, I am inhabiting Fernando's way of life in order to better portray his wild, savage beauty in the film, but only up to a point. No, I am not sleeping with beautiful women for money, nor am I subsisting on a diet of crack and yoghurt. Basically I'm growing a beard and not wearing a shirt. I'm sure there are those among you who don't consider this method acting. Well, I challenge you to not be bound by the constrictive fabric prison of a shirt, nor the cruel kiss of a razor, nay, even the moist oppression of pants for an extended period of time, without experiencing some lightening of the spirit.
Captain Planet has had a rough couple of decades, but he's still around and still rocking the mullet.
This was one of those projects where I really thought it would take less time than it did. However, Captain Planet is an awesome character and great fun to draw (especially that mullet. I had a hard time keeping myself from constantly exaggerating it and making it huge.), so it wasn't really painful until the end when I had a whole bunch of lame stuff like blinks and backgrounds to do.
For my next project, I'm thinking of doing another Fernando rap film. I've written lyrics, but I think they're only 80 or 90% as good as the first song, so I should probably work on it some more. Or maybe I should finally finish Pleasure Island 4, hmm...
Also, DID YOU KNOW that Captain Planet has a blog? I recommend reading it, its pretty fucked up.
Back in May I came up with the first verse of this song but couldn't think of anything else for it. I put the call out here and on my forum to help write the rest.
To me it is not rap or trance but manly poetry captured and beaten, then welded in place by sweaty, hairy wrists.
So thankyou Ultius and SPace, the two Newgrounders whose contributions I used, and thanks to everyone else who contributed, there was a lot of stuff that I wanted to use in the song but was too many or few syllables.
To those who are afraid that their manliness will be assaulted, don't worry, Fernando will hand you back your free will once the video has looped several times. And to those who expected Pleasure Island 4, this is Pleasure Island 4. This is what happens directly after the credits roll.
Also, if anyone wants to see more Raptor Jesus related adventures, I've started a comic called The Velocirapture that is all about his return to Earth.
A while ago I met a producer who mentioned that ABC3, a TV channel for kids, was looking to develop new shows. I came up with an idea for a show called Ragemelon, based around Ragemelon and Bananacles, both invented by my friend James, whom I occasionally draw comics with.
Ragemelon wants to be a famous champion, but is clumsy and incompetent. Ragemelon meets Bananacles, and together they form a posse and cruise around a fantasy fruit/vegetable world looking for lost relics. (I won't post the script I wrote because that would be too embarrassing. (but don't let me talk it down it was totally awesome.))
I sent it to the ABC, but they weren't interested. I also entered it into a pitch competition run by a Canadian production company, it was a finalist but did not win.
So, with nowhere else to go, I may as well post the character designs here!
*edit* I forgot to mention that Ragemelon has appeared on Newgrounds before, he sits on the panel in Ask Raptor Jesus
i've done a short comic called Gooseman goes on a date, you should, like, read it or something. if you don't, i'll know.
anyway, i finished up at my job yesterday
i have bought 2 cartons of beer and stocked up on both real and junk food
how should i spend however much time off i have before a temp agency calls me with something, (or failing that enough time elapses that i start to feel guilty about being unemployed and seek work out myself)?
a) embark upon a ruthless regimen of yoga, rigorous exercise, healthy foods and protein supplements; this is a good opportunity for self improvement
b)drink the beer as quickly as possible, hit the local dvd store like some kind of vacant-eyed cyclone
c)endless back to back pornography marathons, avoid girlfriend
d)do some arty project or something
Although for a while I was bragging about being a prophet because the events depicted in Parliament Deathmatch more or less came to pass, I wasn't prepared to put any sort of prediction in writing before yesterday's election. But I actually thought a narrow Labor victory was likely.
It looks as though there will be a hung parliament but at the moment the Coalition has two more confirmed seats and has actually won the popular vote. It appears that there was large swing against Labor amongst younger voters on the issue of internet censorship, and since it came so close to winning in so many seats, its not unreasonable to say that they might have gotten over the line in a few more seats and therefore had a greater chance of forming a minority government if it wasn't for their plans to censor the internet.
So i'm confident we've escaped that noose, for a few more years anyway.
