Random Update

Posted by illwillpress - August 29th, 2023

Still workin' on the 'Bits' series, getting the 7th season of the original series together for itch & Gumroad, another rant collection should be released on Spotify sometime in September, still doing Twitch streams every Wed & Sunday with pop up streams here and there and the usual stuff.

As for the 'Bits' series, people either like or don't. But that's been the case with just about everything I post here on NG, so I'll do what I do, 'cause it's what I do. And even though everything I make isn't for everybody, it's always meant for somebody. :)

From a creative aspect of it all, I generally need to change things up every so often or it just becomes boring and mundane. With the "Bits" series, even though they're shorter, I'm putting more time into the animation, having more fun with it and every episode isn't an uphill struggle that takes a week to put together. (Also gives me a bit more time to fix myself up as 20+ years of animating atrophy has caused a bunch of pinch nerves and other assorted issues)

So the Bits series is just fun for me at this point. As for the podcast & random rants. They'll happen when they happen. :)

Even that becomes tedious honestly, as everyone feels to need to argue with a cartoon squirrel for some reason when it comes to rants. *shrugs* idk. Humans.


Back to work!



Foamy on Spotify? For how long? Doh! Feeling a bit clueless now... (Fixed it - now following.)

I know you get a lot of hate from people on NG, but with the Bits series, it's even worse. You're now posting twice as many movies, but putting in a quarter of the work.

Why People Like Foamy's Bits:

- It's the same old Foamy everyone loves still.
- Still just as funny as the older toons.

Why Others Hate Foamy's Bits (as opposed to older Foamy videos):
- They're shorter, with ~15-30 seconds instead of ~1 min for regular episodes or 3-5 min for rants (this is generous given the outro often take up more than half that time. Without it, some "bits" go for 7 seconds.)
- More simplified visuals, it takes way less time to draw and animate
- AI backgrounds (or I assume that's AI).
- They still win Daily awards (your last one won 1st place), beating out higher effort submissions. This is the main issue everyone has with your series.

I'm not saying you shouldn't be making the "Bits" anymore. I, like many other NG users, just think they're not a good fit for Newgrounds, especially when compared to.

If you want to soften the blowback, you can either
a. opt out of awards like you did the reuploads and comic dubs,
b. upload them only as a compilation once a year,
c. just don't upload the "Bits" to Newgrounds.

At this point Foamy The Squirrel really needs to take a brake it’s 20 years old at this point it gets so old so fast and never improves and these new bits series sucks it’s even worse then the original foamy series make something new and not with foamy but in general

Nobody cares about your whining. How about producing something of quality instead of harassing old animators?

I'm not the biggest fan of your work, but I encourage you to keep making it if you want, plus you still have an audience after all this time which is no easy feat. I also noticed the improved animation, great job on that!

However, I really wish you would stop using AI generated backgrounds. They clash with the new character designs, and if you take a look at them for more than a few seconds it's easy to notice a bunch of weird stuff going on.

Lamps fusing together, clocks floating in air, chairs melting into the walls and floors, and much more.

Artists are worried about this stuff replacing them, despite still in its infinite stage and riddled with errors. I think you should use this as an opportunity to bring artists on board to do the backgrounds, to help fightback against corporations trying to replace them, especially during the WGA and SAG strikes going on now. You can find plenty of artists right here on Newgrounds to work with, and many will do it for little to nothing.

Just my two cents, but I believe you're in a good position to help keep artists busy, especially since your legacy and reach will really help get their names out there for more potential work.

Am ready for tomorrow for your next Crappy Foamy Bit

Ok he didn't post today which is good for now
