Work & Series Updates :

Working on a Chibi episode which I will probably rework from the ground up using the current sketch style of animation. As with the current series, adding new characters takes forever because each character is about 100-200 separate drawings that need to be scanned/cleaned/colored. Once that is out of the way, it makes future episode a lot easier to create.

 

With this in mind, I'm also trying to get a Pum'Kin Guy series together as well using the same workflow. Once all the classic Foamy episodes are finished and posted in HD, I want to move on to creating a secondary series for everyone. So assuming the work gets done, I'll bounce back between Pum'Kin Guy & the Chibi series, so hopefully there will be something different each week.


So I have plenty to work on for the future, though certain projects may take a back seat to the animated series. Probably the games and written books. Though a visual novel will be easier to put together once all the drawings are done for the characters.


We'll see. I could wake up tomorrow and want to work on the multitude of novels I have sitting in my mind. Back to work!

Doing work as usual. Working on continueing the Chibi series from a few years back or working on a Pum'Kin Guy series. Either will take awhile to get things together so who knows when it will happen. I have a ton of stuff planned and usually not enough hands to get everything done. So we'll see. That's about it. Posting here so folks don't think I'm dead.

2 Albums have been released and if you're helpin' out on Patreon, you get 'em both! If not, that's ok too! They're on Bandcamp! (The Foamy album is a collection of rants from the current series & the Pum'Kin Guy album is an extended version of the original EP that includes music I created and play during the Twitch streams. A lot of that type of music is on "Chibi Music For Chibi People" as well, also available on Bandcamp.)

Thanks for helpin' out :P

Apparently I haven't been a "scouted artist" so my art uploads just end up in the "aspiring artists" section. (Hey! I know I'm not THAT great, but c'mon.) For folks who want to help out... i need to be scouted! It's like 2002 all over again! :o

Thanks for helpin' if ya can.

The Hatta & Sue Z. June! :

Spent some time coloring in various doodles of both The Hatta' & Sue Z. June for future cartoons. Sue Z. & Hatta wont be paired together like Germaine & Foamy, at least as far as backstory goes, but they may have a few episodes together. Though with the sensitivity levels set on "explode" I'm pretty sure ANY episode with him in it is gonna cause problems on YouTube, regardless of context. At least people still have a sense of humor here?

Finished up a bunch of Hatta drawings for the cartoons, so he'll be popping up soon! (Sue Z. June is in the works too) That is all...

For those who don't know, in addition to Foamy The Squirrel / Neurotically Yours, I also do a live Twitch stream twice a week (Sundays 12PM & Wed 1PM ET) It's an interactive stream with a puppet named Pum'Kin Guy & Pauline (below). The content is the opposite side of the Foamy coin, so Pum'Kin Guy is all about good vibes. (Though he tends to rant depending on the topic brought up, but doesn't get too vulgar. He has to add $5 to a swear jar for charity if he slips up. (Year end money raised goes to the local food bank.) Anyway, it's a chill thing with a small group of folks who like to talk about all sorts of things. Feel free to stop by if you like. It's a fun creative "down-time" for me, so it's not a super-serious atmosphere. I'll save that for the squirrels.

(Highlights are generally on YouTube only because I tend to think of NG as an animation/gaming community, and I'd rather not clutter up people's feeds with a 2 hour VOD.) Been doing this for almost 4 years... so I figure I should mention it here at least once.

421628_154837249213_1.jpg(This was just posted here for folks who don't stop by Patreon for the random updates... so if you missed it there... and don't want to click on another link today... )

1 : YouTube seems to be leveling off for now as far as monetization goes, but a head's up for those waiting on older HD versions of classic Foamy... A LOT of later episodes from season 7-8 will NOT be able to be monetized on YouTube (Or even posted at all in it's current "Speak no Evil" climate.) So I'll be looking for other outlets to showcase that content.

2: Blu-Ray Collection: Working on the logistics of getting together a BluRay collection of all the Classic Series & Reboot Series. They may be split into volumes or a box set, depends on cost of course, but I'm looking into it. (Worst case, digital download will be made available.)

3: Sue Z. June : The roller derby girl who was Foamy's short-lived room mate will probably end up making a return in the current series. When? No Idea. How? No idea? Why? I don't Know!!! But I've been working on doodles. The thing is, I'm trying to keep the "Sketch" series as bare bones as possible in order to avoid making the same mistakes I did with classic series (i.e. bogging it down with Germaine soul-searching stuff.) It had it's place then, and those who "got it", understood what I was going for, but generally it kinda just made the series "too serious" for the average viewer. So if other characters make a return, it will be for a humorous reason, not some multi-episode, introspective character development with social commentary kinda thing. I did that, and I'm kinda done with it for the most part. I think at this point I can just make my observations about humanity during rants or using other characters to play off of without making it too heavy handed. So that's my goal for the current series. Bagels, Cream Cheese & Haunted Toasters.

4: Pum'Kin Guy & Pauline : Both characters have been a thing on Twitch and I've enjoyed the ease of creating content with viewers twice a week. The downside is, I have enough ideas to flesh out the characters into a full series, but not the time. So I'll be trying to somehow manipulate the space-time continuum to free up some more minutes in the day. At the very least I'll try to get some books written and some animated specials done. Currently around 30 pages into a novel, have 2 other animated specials written and rough outlines for other books and specials. I'm not sure if I'm glad or annoyed that I still have ideas after 17 years, but it's frustrating not being able to keep up with them.

5: Music & Pauline : Working on getting Pauline an instrument to play during stream. (Wha?) Yeah, since she's a silent character (and there's a reason for that) I thought it would be good to give her some sort of musical outlet. It's something I want to add to the stream every so often, but it'll take time to implement.

6: Foamy Rant Albums! Yes, for those who want audios of all the current Foamy rants, I'm working on an album for everyone. Should be on Bandcamp when I get a chance, but obviously this is going to take some time... I haven't even mentioned the game development!

7: Game Development : Workin' on it. Have some rough outlines for visual novels and I'll slowly be mapping out dialogue and such. It'll take time, but it's in my brain.

8: An Analog Tail : Yes, that book I wrote awhile back called "Power Down" An Analog Tale does have a second book in the works. 70 Pages in so far. Again, slow roll on that front. The first book didn't sell a lot, but then again I just put it out there and posted once "Hey, I wrote a book". Clearly I don't do this for the money. lol.

9: I will try to leave the house in February.

At the end of 2018, I kinda said to myself; "I should probably do some self promotion in 2019". And so, with 2019 being here, I'm self-promoting. (I really haven't made an effort doing so in 15 years... so let's see what happens)

There's a bunch of links below & on my profile page of all the Foamy related goodies, social things & stuff out there. So clicky a link! There's stuff everywhere!

Other than that, it's back to work for me!
