No-Brainer's News

Posted by No-Brainer - February 5th, 2013


Sorry that I've been quite over here. We're making the new No-Brainer short, but we've kinda had to put it off for a bit. It's for a good reason, and that's so I can just focus on school. Yeah, it's always school that seems to be the reason I can't animate anymore.

I'm really trying my hardest to get to the point in school where I don't really need to be super concerned about grades and what not. It's my Senior Year and Semester 2, so I need to be busting ass on whatever. I promise we'll have the cartoon sometime in February just like I said. Just don't worry, everything is under control, but please be understanding that we are still in High-School, and we have bigger responsibilities JUST THIS SECOND. We promise to make time for you and the animation very soon!

BTW: I'm saying we because i'm working with more people now to make the cartoons, and I feel it's appropriate to say so.

February Release

No-Brainer 5: Racing Finished


Posted by No-Brainer - January 7th, 2013


Everyone, I have great news.

No-Brainer Episode 5 will be premiering at Evercon '13. As this will be my first ever Convention as a special guest, I'm very nervous about showing off the cartoon. It WILL be done by 1/12/13, and then put up online the next day 1/13/13. It's going to be awesome, and I hope you enjoy the cartoon.

Once again, if you're in the area of Schofield, Wisconsin, I urge you to come and check out Evercon. It's pretty sweet, even if it is a school video game convention. I will be selling posters, stickers, and sketchs.

Evercon NB5 Premier!


Posted by No-Brainer - December 21st, 2012


Hey all!

So BIG UPDATE HERE! Evercon, a local convention here in Schofield, WI, is happening on January 11th - 12th, and i'm attending as a Special Guest. I'm somewhat known around here as the "animator dude" so yeah of course i'd be there. I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO COME IF YOU'RE AROUND THESE PARTS OF TOWN!!

I will be having my own table where I sell Signed Sketches for $5 and Posters for $7. I will also be having a Panel at 5:00pm on Saturday the 12th of January.

CARTOON STUFF
__________________

So NB5, yeah. I'll just basically sum that up for you. 7150 Frame (about). And it's almost 5 mintues long. Just hang in there, i'm rushing it now because it's just fucking taking forever now.

I WILL have to cut into NB5 Progress and start making something else for Evercon. That's all happening over everyones Winter Break. Wish me luck on that!!

Evercon is Coming!!

No-Brainer Episode 5 is still in progress, and that's not the only project I have in-production!!

Let's talk about the things that matter to Newgrounds first. No-Brainer Episode 5 is up to over 6000 frames of animation, and god damnit is it a joy seeing this thing get to be so long. I have been working on it for 3 hours a day for the past week, and it's a lot of work but it's worth it. I'm putting in more Frame-by-Frame animation into this one. Though I may cheat and tween if I want to rush a part or two. You should able to see the cartoon very soon, maybe around January, Late December is you're lucky.

The Comic Book I mentioned is being developed for a convention I plan to attend as a special guest here locally. It's in Wisconsin, and it's called Evercon. I urge you to come and check me out if you're around these parts of town. The comic book is going to have 20 pages of exciting information on the series, special activities, and comics (of course) !! From what I've read from the publishers, it will cost about $10 to produce them each, so they'll be priced around $15 each! NOT BAD EH??

So yeah in short, working on the cartoon PLUS a new comic book you can buy from me soon. Ok, goodnight.

Animation and Comic Book!!

Yeahh I know what you're thinking..

Ok so yeah i've decided to get back into animating. Games just weren't my thing, i've been interested in them, but I think I just realized over time that making games just wasn't me, it's not what I was meant to do. I've had a Sinus Infection for the past week, and have missed a lot of school, and I've had a lot of time to myself to draw and do other things, and during that time I took a brief moment to think to myself. I thought, "What happened to No-Brainer? Do I still have any fans who aren't just fans of the Game Grumps stuff on Youtube?" and sadly I said to myself: "I don't even know."

I watched my older cartoons, and kinda got motivated to re-amp my cartoons back up for work. So I did just that.

I also noticed an animator named Jae who is for some reason inspiring me to get back into the swing of things. I guess it's his whole thing of starting small then rising to the top. I have potential, people do keep telling me that, but I never take it seriously.

Hopefully, I can get NB5 out to you guys very soon. I won't bullshit you again.

No-Brainer 5: Racing *COMING SOON AGAIN*


Posted by No-Brainer - November 5th, 2012


My brain is fried with everything that has been going on.

I've been trying my hardest to get by for first quarter in my senior year. With that being said, i've rarely had enough brain power to focus on doing anything in Flash. But thank god the quarter ends tomorrow, so now I can relax and focus on stuff I want to do for a bit.

Remember Todd from No-Brainer? He and I are going to take a shot at making a small game together. It's a regular old platformer, but in this game, you can control both characters No-Brainer and Todd! It's a team work game, so you need to use both characters to achieve the goal of the level and move on.

Evan (todd) is a pretty good AS2 or AS3 programmer, so hopefully we can dish out something rad. It's going to be small though. Hopefully 30 levels, and a boss fight at the end.

So look forward to that!

Stress

Our game wasn't finished in time for us to compete. Jazza would've won any way, but who cares, I was mainly making a game to just get into making games. I really seem to like the idea that we have going on here. It's like a zombie survival, but then mixed with some elements of tower defense. I won't give out too much.

I really hope to turn gaming from a passion into a career. If that's so, then (Incoming sad part for NB fans) don't expect No-Brainer Episodes to be happening anytime soon. It was fun for a while when I actually dreamed of making awesome cartoons for everyone to watch! Now that that has (kinda) happened and I've felt what it's like to make animations and stuff, it didn't feel like it was quite enough. I didn't feel like it was a proper way or a way I actually wanted to express myself. Making games can make a person feel so much, because they have to play through and actually go through certain things, witness things when they do something, it's all about immersion basically. I want people to feel immersed in the stuff I make, and honestly I have done a horrible job at that, making No-Brainer and what not.

To be honest, making No-Brainer is just such a pain in the ass that i just don't enjoy it anymore. It has a kind of set thing that happens when making No-Brainer. Storyboard, Voices, Animate, take a month break, Animate, take another break, Decide cartoons fate, Either A: Make the rest of it and publish it, or B: Cancel it, leave it in purgatory. No-Brainer is something I'm kinda proud of, but not really. I could've done more with it, but I never felt like I wanted to. I never had the actual urge to make anything with him or the others.

TL;DR

Making games, probs no more No-Brainer. Sorry folks :U

Game Jam 8 ==> HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR


Posted by No-Brainer - October 11th, 2012


I'm in this. It's going to be rad.

But yeah seriously let's talk about this; I asked to join the Game Jam 8 and found myself a team almost instantly. I'm gonna be animating the thing (shocker) and pretty much just doing all the art. I'm very excited to be joining this. As most of you know, I've tried making games on my own, they have not turned out well. Hopefully with this Game Jam becomes a turning point, so maybe I can focus on Games if I like it that much.

I've wanted to make games for a long time, and hopefully with this I can make that happen on Friday through Sunday :)

ALSO: Realms is still going, you can read here at Aimless Adventures

Game Jam 8


Posted by No-Brainer - September 24th, 2012


I'm making REALMS currently. There will be no No-Brainers or Game Grump animations for quite sometime, unless I can squeeze it in to my schedule.

You can check out REALMS HERE!!!!

I hope you like REALMS. Oh, just for the sake of confusion, It starts as animated .gifs, then goes to normal images due to color issues. Also, there will be flash animations and games, so look forward to that.

PIC: Me working on the next update as of 9/24/12
