New Short Animation

Updated

I've brought back some of my characters from one of my oldest series of animations. The new animation is titled Brother and Sister Short 1.

I would love to bring these characters back and tell many more stories with them (as I have plenty in mind), but first I've gotta go back to the drawing board and redesign them a bit, as well as change around my aspect ratio and color palette to get the proper look I want for these characters.

So anyway, this might not be the last you see of these characters! But on the same note, I have at least two other un-related projects that I started long ago but never finished that I would love to return to first, so it may still be a little while before I truly bring Brother and Sister back.

If you're at all interested, you can check out the horribly crappy original brother and sister animations that I made when I was 12 (using paper cutouts, a GIF animator, and a crappy $10 mic) on YouTube HERE.

Also, if you enjoyed this, be sure to check out some of my other stuff, such as Funny School Things Redux!

New Short Animation



Go watch Funny School Things Redux!
And once you've watched that, check out the Extras!

This is Funny School Things 1, but completely reanimated from scratch. I've rewritten all the skits, reanimated them, revoiced them with an entire team of voiceactors (compared to the two voiceactors from the original version), AND I've added two entirely new skits. Even if you saw the first one, there should be plenty of new stuff here to keep you entertained =).

I began work on this over an entire year ago, but computer troubles and college forced me to push it back this far. I'm actually amazed I even finally finished it...

Also, I am once again tired of working on these school-related animations. So I'm definitely done with the Funny School Things series for the time being. But, I hope to release something short fairly soon. At least, I expect it to definitely not take a whole year to get it out xP. But we shall see how that goes... Until then, check out Funny School Things Redux! (Also, if you haven't seen it, check out Funny School Things 2!)

Funny School Things Redux! Watch it!


Genius Cop II v1.1

2012-05-08 13:17:00 by Aqlex

Bleh, I know you're all gonna hate me, and I hate myself too, but I've been slowly adding bits and pieces to Genius Cop II, and now I've released Genius Cop II V1.1. I am now going to stop, and distance myself from these 1.1's and start working on my other projects. Some of the buttons are a bit glitchy, and the file is huge unfortunately, but as I kept adding onto the file, it started to grow very large and corruptive, and my computer could barely handle it. I'm amazed I was even able to get a working .swf file out of there. I'm definitely done messing with this project.

Inside, you'll find somewhat cleaned up animation (though much less so than Genius Cop v1.1), changed timing, and mainly lots of new extras. More deleted scenes, a new easter egg, more concept art, a new author's note, etc. The majority of the update is adding new extras. Okay, that's all I have to say about this, I'm done with this.

I'm now going to work on something else, hopefully something longer!

Shortest Animation I've Made

2012-03-12 11:16:16 by Aqlex

Ghetto people can be hilarious.
My High School was full of ghetto people. They are capable of coming up with some of the funniest quotes.
My latest, extremely short animation is about one of these funny quotes that has stuck in my head since the day I heard it. I think most people will find this animation a complete was of 22 seconds of their lives, but luckily the animation is so short that with enough ADD, most people probably won't even remember watching it.
Anyway, go watch it! I promise to eventually release something much longer; I do realize that 22 seconds is really not all that exciting.

Also, I'm putting myself out there as a voice actor! Here is my demo thingy. It's pretty crappy; I'm going to try and make a better one one day, but for now, that's what I've got to show.

Shortest Animation I've Made


Anyone need voiceacting? (and etc)

2012-02-20 13:24:04 by Aqlex

Hey guys! I put up a voiceacting demo thingy. If anyone is looking for a voiceactor, PM me or something!

Also, I recently designed a logo for A-Genius of Newgrounds! That's probably something I won't be doing often, but I did have some fun doing it =).

On that note of making something for someone else, I know I posted this a few months back, but I thought I would put up the link again. I did some flash animation for GiR2007's "Google Translate Beaver Beatbox" youtube video!

Hopefully, I'll be able to help out other people's videos/animations by being a voiceactor =).

Oh, you guys were wondering about my next animation? I just started animating something super short that I hope to get done within a month or two. Here is a preview picture, I guess.

Genius Cop v1.1

2012-01-20 10:53:57 by Aqlex

After months and months of no activity from me, I'm releasing....!
An updated version of one of my worst received animations.
I know, I know, you might as well start throwing the rotten fruit now. But, Genius Cop v1.1 is, in my opinion, a much cleaner version of the animation. I cleaned up lots of frames, artwork, and buttons, as well as replaced some of my voiceacting with the extremely talented RicePirate, improved the timing to some degree (this animation is 6 seconds faster), added some new content (okay, with that, it's only 3 seconds faster...), fixed some glitches, re-edited all the audio, and added lots of new extras! I'm much happier with this version of Genius Cop, and I hope that you guys will be too. Go check out Genius Cop v1.1 now!

My Film 1 Final

2011-12-14 23:37:11 by Aqlex

I just finished my Film 1 Final!
It's about myself, in 4th grade. It actually sucks a lot. I filmed it over about 5 weeks, and a LOT of stuff went wrong during the process, so I spent a good chunk of time simply trying to fix some things in the footage and sound instead of focusing on other areas. BUT, I learned a lot, so that's good. I have a much better understanding of how to deal with future film projects.
On the animation side, I'm about to go on a vacation for a few weeks, and then I'll have a week or so before my school starts again, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to animate out something short and sweet in that week just to keep the old tablet from collecting dust.

My Film Class Assignment

2011-10-21 14:42:20 by Aqlex
Updated

"The High Schooler" is my latest assignment for for Film class. The assignment was to describe a space. All sound had to be recorded separately.
I learned a bunch from doing this short film. You guys should check it out!

Also, I animated for the famous GiR2007 on Youtube.
You should check out that video as well!

I'm now attending California College of the Arts, as a Film major. It's awesome! I highly recommend it xD. I can't wait to expand my film and drawing skills!

On the animation front, my computer needed a reformat over the summer and it completely threw off the animation of my main project, but it's still sitting around. When I get the time, I will return to working on it. In the meantime, I might sit down for a while and animate something small to release.

So, what do you guys think of "The High Schooler?"

My Film Class Assignment



I just released Genius Cop II! It has RicePirate in it, so you know it's going to be awesome. Actually, who knows what you guys will think of it, but I really do hope for my sake that you enjoy it. The animation is a little better than the first Genius Cop, the voiceacting is better, the jokes are a little better(?) and it's a whole minute longer. If you never saw the original animation, check it out!
If you're new to my stuff, I suggest you go check out some of my other animations, maybe like my only ever front page animation, Funny School Things 2!

Genius Cop II, featuring RicePirate!



While in between working on another bigger animation, I challenged myself to animate something in one day. It became Right Where You Do It, based a true story.

Genius Cop really wasn't received as well as I'd hoped, which sucks because I wasn't expecting it to do well in the first place, but it actually did worse than my expectations. BUT, I'm still probably going to make a sequel, only because I have a last few jokes I want to make with that character, and so I don't go back to animating things that take place at school just yet (since a huge amount of stuff I do seems to relate to school). So, watch out for a possible sequel to Genius Cop =P!
