Decky's News

Posted by Decky - February 1st, 2019


Becoming a new tradition, this was ment to be posted yesterday but better late than never.

We're getting very close to a decade as a Newgrounds member. At this point I've seen a few come and go (phrasing). IRL I've moved into my own place in the last 12 months, kept my job in the golf Industry and I'm generally happy. So nothing to complain about there.

But before I note down the stats. I swear, once again, that I'm gonna upload something this year. I just never seem to find the time and after 10 hours behind a computer at work I'm less inclined to draw something up for fun.

Anyway...

First off, whoops! As it was the eighth anniversary of me making my account yesterday and I forgot to make this post (an ironically fitting tribute to my activity this year).

The past twelve months have been somewhat hectic for me. I keep stating that it's just growing up and not having as much time for the things that I enjoy anymore and, of course, this is completely correct. Once you hit twenty-five I think it's time to give up on fun and just try to enjoy what comes around. Sadly I'm approaching twenty-seven.

As for Newgrounds life, not much at all. In fact I have removed more content than uploaded this year. Never what you want. I hope to get more time in the up coming year.

Anyway....

Seven years. What a time it's been. So many things are different now, both in my personal life and the world we live in.

Good evening folk of Newgrounds. Hope you are all well and enjoying the start of the run up to Christmas. I got all of my present buying done early this year, in the hope for a stress-free festive season. Fat chance of that happening but I live in hope.

Talking of Xmas I'm currently working on something for @Lintire's Secret Santa Collaboration, a fun project where you create an image depicting one of Santa's nefarious schemes and ploys throughout history; on the grassy knoll, shooting at JFK, sinking ships in The Bermuda Triangle or a fat cat at the top of the world's banks. The sky's the limit. If you're the arty sort you should definitely check it out (deadline: December 23rd).

Secondly, I have a new poster out. It was uploaded to the portal a couple of days ago and I'd sure appreciate a few more views, votes and maybe even a review or two before it's left to the pages of history. It's a design that looks back on the events of the past year and how "memorable" it was...yep it's another Trump piece but I rarely do portraits so it's a slight leap from my mainly vector based style.

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO LOOK

Finally, I'm still working as a freelance graphic designer. If anybody has any inquiries about design work please feel free to PM me, I'll get back to you ASAP, I'm usually on here at some point during the day to answer any questions.

Take it easy Newgrounds.

Evening Newgrounds,

Not so long ago I asked the Art Mods to remove a number of users from my art scouts as they'd deleted their work at some point over the years (read up on "art scouting" here) and this got me thinking "if I was to get 'Pruned' how many would go down with me?" In other words, how big is my art scouting branch?

I currently have 84 scouts. I'm proud to have given so many opportunities to up-and-coming artists and some have turned out great things. @JackDCurleo is an Art Mod now.

So I decided to crunch some numbers:

Starting with my 84 scouts.

Who have in turn scouted a further 53 others.

Who have scouted another 23 artist.

Those artist have scouted 4 more.

Leading to 1 final scout. (@mysteriouslila - the end of my art branch.)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A total of 165 artist.

(166, including myself.)

Nothing like figuring out that 165 other users would lose their Art Portal privileges if you broke the rules to make you feel more important to the system. 

In other news, I plan to get at least one more thing into the Art Portal before the end of the year.

Congratulations to @FinnMK, @PirateCrab & @Papkee. I hope you like your new forum signatures (view them here) and thanks to @TaintedLogic for granting me the opportunity to get involved in the competition.

If this years competition completely passed you by then you can catch up using the links below:

The Tryouts - The Knock-out Round - The Final Round - The Final Round Results

If you would have liked to tryout but missed your chance, don't worry, there's always next year when hopefully I'll be back creating the sigs again and you can always PM TaintedLogic to be added to the mailing list.

Until then keep Newgroundsing and I'll hopefuly have more artwork to upload here soon.

It's been a while since I posted any news (nearly six months in fact) so I thought it about time I gave somewhat of an update about what I'm up to.

Firstly, I'm still at my job as an inhouse graphic/web designer and all is going well on that front. I seem to be spending more time working on freelance projects though and if anybody wants something designing feel free to drop me a PM

Secondly, I'm always writting down new ideas for animation scripts and I hope to have something in the works at some point this year (at least).

Keep on being awesome Newgrounds. Hope to exhibit more stuff here soon.
