The Green Ranger Episode 1

2012-07-06 19:24:15 by TheGreeNate

I originally was gonna put this animation on deviantart, but it has been giving me problems and the animation has not processed, maybe it just takes a long time. Hopefully, I can put this animation on newgrounds. It took 5 months for me to make, and I got it done on my birthday.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rrBf1eJ p2E&list=UUsDW9sD2sk32pW4_4dLcrTw&index=3&featur e=plcp

The youtube version has missing drawings in it....three in total. If I can upload it to newgrounds, you will see the complete version. Might be a little laggy though.


New animation.

Okay so I made a new animation. It pretty much explains how I attempted making my own sprites. Check it out if you wanna see it. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/

Item obtained: NINTENDO 3DS!

2011-04-16 13:57:33 by TheGreeNate

I am doing the fanboy dance right now. Because this thing is so awesome! The game i have for it is Super Street Fighter 4. I was having lots of fun with the online matches. Man there are spammers online. After that I got a chance to try out the AR cards. I'm not going to question it at all, I'm just going to assume that it is technology from another planet. At first I wasn't too comfortable with the dragons popping out of my living room table spewing fire and acid at me, but I got used to it and it was really fun! The next game on my list is Rayman 3D, then Ocarina of time when it comes out, then Star Fox 64 3D. Now excuse me while i play it some more!



Hey this is TheGreeNate. Don't know if I mentioned it, but I have received the rest of Vero-Chan's lines....and they are AWESOME! Still waiting on Droux the Shredder to finish some of his lines as well as Lycoris-moon. Now about Rina Chan? I really have intentions on asking someone else if the wanna do the characters. The reason why is because I sent her the script lines and the characters, and she has not responded. Maybe she is too busy, or maybe she just saw the first two installments of my blue vs. green series and thought they were garbage....I dunno. All I know is if she doesn't respond by the end of the month, I'm gonna look for someone else. I had intentions on asking a really good voice actress who has been in tons of things. You might have heard of her, she goes by the name of Hnilmik. Unfortunately, she has way too many projects to finish and if you are extremely busy, I'm not one who wants to get in the way of what you're doing. But there is one va I have in mind though.

Now here is the big thing I wanna talk about. Another animation program (NO! NOT ANIME STUDIO!). All throughout 2010, I had my eyes on Toon Boom Animate, an animation program that takes a dump on Toon Boom Studio. I have some money coming in two weeks, and I plan on getting Toon boom Animate. I also plan on animating Blue vs. Green 3 in this program! The reason is because this was originally the program I wanted to get, but I didn't have enough for it so i got Toon boom Studio. Animate has all the things that I want in it. It even exports videos faster! Don't get me wrong Toon Boom Studio is an excellent animation program, but it took me a long time, just to export Blue vs. Green 2 an animation that was like 5 minutes long. There were also times where the program would lag while I was animating so much so that would eventually...well crash. I also wanna show Blue vs. Green 3 on newgrounds so what I'll have to do is export it as an swf video and put it into flash. However an animator uses flash and Toon Boom Studio (his name is Kyutwo) was quoted as saying "Trying to get a toon boom animation to work in flash is like trying to get a PS3 game to work on a PS2." Things missing from your animation, black spots and stuff you can't fix! Whoa! So yeah the mario project may be my last animation in Toon Boom Studio. Speaking of Mario project i only have one more scene to complete!

Let's see here.....OH YEAH! Here are some other things on my list when my money comes in!
-Adobe Premium Suite
-Camstasia Studio
-A scanner
-Internet (Don't have it on my laptop LOLZ)
-A 3D program (for making backgrounds...I dunno we'll see how that goes.)
Yup that's pretty much it! See ya!

The Anime Studio Pro Story

2011-03-20 00:25:28 by TheGreeNate

When I was 18 years old, I bought a program i thought would bring my ideas to life. It was called Anime Studio Pro 6. I saw some videos on youtube liked what I saw. I thought it was really good.....I was DEAD WRONG. For one the drawing tool is AWFUL! When you draw something, a bunch of dots appear on the screen and there is no way to get them off. Secondly, literally everything you do needs a layer! You can't animate by keyframes, you have to draw one thing, go into another layer, draw something else, go into another and the cycle continues. Somebody made an action script tool where you could use keyframe animation, but even then that was a pain. I had never touched that program all throughout 2010.....SO WHY DID I INSTALL IT ON MY COMPUTER AGAIN!? Well there is a very talented animator who uses sprites. You might have heard of him, his youtube name is ifureadthisdie. He wanted to combine 2D with 3D elements so he tried to make a background in Anime studio Pro 7. He said the program has WAY TOO MANY glitches. They messed up his sound, his background, or as he put it "the video entirely" was messed up. He got so angry he didn't even thank his viewers. While he hated the video I actually thought it was pretty legit. So i tried out the 3D feature in there, and it was actually kind of cool. I told my friend John, a stop motion animator, and he told me that Anime Studio has way too many things missing in it.......Oh man. I might try and make a background in it one day. But for now, time to finish up this fight scene on my Mario project. I'm out!


Blue vs. Green 3 Uptdates and..The rock Returns?

Hey waddup! This is TheGreeNate! Okay so far the script is already done and right now i'm working on character designs and storyboarding. I've got one voice actor who said she's up for it. She's known as Vero-Chan. I heard her demo and she's really good! She's gonna be doing a couple of voices. She hasn't seen the script yet but i plan on sending it out this week. With all the work going into this project it may take a while for me to complete but hopefully I can get it done by the end of the school semester. I've already got a lot of people as well as two art professors who want to see the conclusion and that is driving me to complete it. I hope ya'll are looking forward to it.

Now for the next topic, THE ROCK HAS RETURNED TO RAW! No, i'm not kidding. My sister had an avatar of him on her facebook profile and told me he returned. I didn't believe it. So I went on youtube and looked it up and there were a lot of videos with titles of his return to raw. i thought it was one of those fake edited WWE videos that most people have made. Then I clicked on one of them. Sure enough, the rumors were true! To no one's surprise, he still has that electrifying aura that has always been with him throughout all of his years in the WWF/WWE. When you hear "IF YA SMELL!" the crowd still goes insane and shits their pants, and to tell you the truth, I'm one of those fans. I was literally abusing the replay button on that video I saw. On top of all that, on top of all that he has a new theme arrangement AND I'M DIGGIN IT! Man not havin cable sucks right now Oh well I'm sure somebody will upload Wrestlemania on youtube like always. One more thing, why did people think Justin Bieber was gonnna host Wrestlemania? LOL I'm out! Will coninue with more updates on the project!



Yes this is the final installment to my Blue Vs. Green series. Right now i'm doing what i did for the second part of the series,which is study other animations and cartoons. While i'm happy with how my second installment came out I feel like since this will be the final installment it really needs to be good! I also am going to be going around looking for voice actors fir this project. I feel like since i voiced the characters, voice acting will be expected in this new project. I'll need a fighting announcer and crowd spectators. I'll give voice acting another shot by voicing blue and green again. anyone interested? feel free to hit me up! Til then i'm out!

Until then ya'll take care, PEACE!!



WADDUP NEWGROUNDS!
Well I announced before. that I'm working on a project in toon boom. But I have to do it since it was an assignment from my professr at West LA. And get this, he's my painting professor! I have to finish this by tuesday! Here is how it happened:

I'm In class. I had no painting tools so I busted out with the laptop, the tablet and booted up Toon Boom. Everyone saw what I was doing and had a good laugh. Then my professor saw it.

Professor: Wow! That looks really good. *laughs*
Me: Thanks man! I really-
Profesor: Finish it and bring it back tuesday. That's your assignment. I wanna see how it turns out.
Me:....

Also I have been looking at alkot of animations and cartoon shows for reference and stuff like that. Expect something from me by the end of this year, or by the beginning of next year. With that being said, PEACE!
