If you're not interested in anything I have to say at all and were expecting something Pokémon-related from me, then scroll to the bottom for a silly video. If you'd like to be better educated in what's going on in the lives of all the NewGrounders in the world, then read on to add another to your checklist.
HEYYY, I haven't posted anything here in a long while so I figured it was time for just a general update on shit I'm doing that nobody cares about.
The first thing you might notice if you've for whatever reason been frequenting my userpage is that I've replaced my old profile image and banner with Donkamule ones. That's right, I'm trying to get rid of all the video game shit around my page (CHANGE MY USERNAME TO JUST "LON", TOM!). I'm ringin' in the new decade with original content. Video game parodies are enjoyable, but they're just not nearly as fun to make or show off as something that you can truly call your own. I'm glad my Pee Red Flash got all the attention it did and set me up a small fanbase, but it really is time to move on since I got my tablet and all.
That being said, production on Donkamule: Episode 1 is going well I suppose, but very, very slowly. I may be able to draw stuff now, but it's just so hard to find the time between school and work and social activities. Oh yeah -- work -- I work in a local game store my uncle owns now (it's a pretty Goddamn sweet gig). I also got a 360 for Christmas, taking up most of my time that wasn't already taken up by family gatherings and such. But it's inching toward completion each day... I have maybe over 30 seconds done out of what is around a 12 minute script, so I'm gonna need to work my ass off during March and Summer Breaks if I want this thing out before the end of the year.
Trust me though, it'll be worth the wait. I have some big-name voice actors involved like sonicmega, who did the excellent Oak voice in my Pee Red flash, Sapphire voicing the female characters, Vivvav voicing the lead, Donkamule, lucawesome being a retard, and, uh... skullman... I won't link his page because I haven't heard from the dude at all since I cast him... >:/
Actually only 2 of the 5 VAs have sent their lines in... I won't tattle on who the other two are, but SHIT, Vivvav and sonicmega, I need those lines!
Also, Vivvav and lucaweomse haven't been in any NewGrounds flashes (at least not released ones), which surprises me because they're both REALLY talented at lots of different voices... So, if you're looking for a voice actor, check out these guys! (EDIT: Dumbassery! I somehow didn't notice that lucawesome DID have a flash he was in. Oh well, he's great anyway!)
Ahhh, what else, what else? Ooo, I have a guy doing the music and theme song for the series. That's pretty cool. I haaave... voice actors!... No, I said that already... Damnit, this is why I don't update that often. Okay, I'll throw in the full body shots of all the characters below so you can know what they look like better... but not before you watch this awesome video (WARNING: explict lyrics and shit):
