The Beginning of March

2018-03-03 13:18:26 by TheDyingSun

So as Febuary is wrapped up, one of my drawings is being wrapped up as well! Hopefully later today! And to those going bowling tonight see you there! (I will be beating @IvanAlmighty in bowling! Well, hopefully.)

Continuing into this month, I will be busy, especially with two robotics competitions arranged on my weekends (which is when I usually draw now). April is kind of booked as well, as I have to study up on Blender for ANOTHER competition. After that is all my Pico Day prep, and then... Demon Week. Demon Week is a little something I'm posting a drawing a day of either demons or creatures from the beyond. I want these to be high quality, and I've already started on two of them. If you want to join me with that, go right ahead! It's the week of May 24th and it starts Sunday.

See you at Revolutions!

(I can't mask my excitement for tonight!)

40 fans! (and My Birthday!)

2018-01-15 22:22:40 by TheDyingSun

So between Christmas and now I reached 40 fans! I'm still going to celebrate the small numbers. 40 people is most certaintly enough to make a good art group, ey? Possibly even a small business. Anyway, THANK YOU!!!

And today is my birthday! I didn't get around to doing a birthday drawing (yet, hopefully tomorrow), and whoo! It's been (insert my age) and they haven't killed me yet! Though I got a 4x4x4 Rubix's cube that will be the bane of me during robotics season. And yeah, that's in full swing, I forgot to mention that my twitter is slightly more alive. 

And yup, I should have something ready for Pixel Day, I have it marked down.

See you guys then!!! Cheers!


(Yes, I whipped that up in a minute)

Wrapping up the year

2017-12-30 17:38:18 by TheDyingSun

     The other day I uncovered my reflections from last year. The old me was saying there's so much we could have done in 2016, and in 2017 I'm very happy with everything I've been able to do. WIth robotics, my drawings, animation, 3D animation, and getting a bit of everything.

    As for this upcoming year, I'm slowing down on drawing to work more on animation. If you've read one of my earlier posts, I have Project Noir, Tiyaka, and Madness Discoification as animations I'm working on. Adding on to that list is Jimmy and his father, a series I'm working on with @StreamMachine00 . (I've been telling him to spruce up his Newgrounds) This was more of a sparratic story that came about, Steam had gotten a mic for Christmas and started sending me voice lines of a father and his son Jimmy. I asked if I could animate the voice lines, and then we started to work on a series for the two.

     Well, with these animations I want to do, that means I'm going to be finishing less drawings. Still working on anatomy, getting better. I have gotten my feet wet with 3D animation and will be part of a SkillsUSA competition.

     And build season for robotics starts in about a week. Funny thing is, this year is an 8-bit game theme, so I'll be drawing for Pixel Day. (It's not like I've drawn something correlating to the years game theme before *cough* Steampunk Scraps *cough*)

     This year was a personal best for me, and I want to top it in the new year. That said, Happy New Years and Happy Build Season!


(This was just a sketch of a drawing I wanted to do for the New Year. Anyway, cheers!)

An Unofficial Chat

2017-11-09 11:40:56 by TheDyingSun

So yesterday I started up an Unofficial Newgrounds Discord Server, so come on in!

Any other news at the moment? Just working on a drawing (and a safety animation) as usual, nothing special.

Plans, Projects, Projectors, Pumpkins and Pixels.

2017-11-01 18:36:50 by TheDyingSun

(Not in that order)

Projectors: I was at the Ambler Theater Sceening last week, which was AWESOME! It was really fun to meet up with the other artists on the site, big and small. Tom really has to do something like that again. And now I have a tankman figure staring down at me anytime I'm drawing... (There's so much I could say about this)

PROJECTS: Also last week, well, two weekends ago, I was animation for Jazza's animation challenge. Didn't finish, entered it anyway, etc. HOWEVER, this experience really got me to love animation! This brings me to....

Plans! In 2018 I want to work and finish three animations (Probably two will actually be finished): Project "Noir" (Place holder name), Madness: Discofication, and Tiyaka (Possibly a place holder name). Now, Madness: Discofication is ofcourse, for Madness Day, and I'm going to be working with @StarButterfly17 on another animation about Madness.

Pumpkins: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I didn't finish up Day 3 of Goretober yet (sadly), and I don't want to do the Huevember challenge because....

PIXELS: So... for the majority of you, you have no clue what FIRST robotics is! This year is themed around arcade style video games, and I'm doing a safety animation... to try and help my team win the Safety Animation award... (back to late nights) I still should be doing something for Robot Day... hopefully.

And as a last kicker, this is the animation I finished for the challenge I was talking about:

SO! Back to my insanity!

30 fans! (and other things)

2017-09-26 21:23:26 by TheDyingSun

All I can say is thank you. I know it's a slow start and I haven't really posted frequently, but I'm glad I've been able to share drawings with you guys.

I know I didn't make a "Happy Madness Day" post, but madness day was nice this year. I enjoyed drawing Tricky.

Anyway, already working on a new drawing, something a little brighter (litterally and metaphorically). Hopefully I can stay up on the schedule of either Inktober and Goretober (I want to double up using boths prompts for the day). @jackajam and I are following a Goretober schedule from last year. Happy drawing!

Fun with Vectors!

2017-09-16 21:11:24 by TheDyingSun

The obligatory, "each new drawing update", and this time there isn't a three month gap!

School has started back up for me, and  I have a digital drawing class (that the school didn't tell me about)! We're currently using Adobe Illustrator so some vector drawings may show up with my drawings. Sweet huh?


This is part of our first project where we were told to show that we understand the shape tools. This is only the beginning so the final should be coming in a couple days!

Well, see you guys then!

(I've draw more with a mouse over the past week than I have in 5 years in this class.)


Finally, some glimmer of life on this account

2017-08-11 13:51:36 by TheDyingSun

Greetings! The last time I posted a drawing was Pixel Day... stayed up to midnight, like usual. And after that... I'll just say robotics was busier than I expected (still awesome though).

Oh yeah, and the Twitter and Twitch? My laptop can't handle streaming unless it's really glitchy and takes away from my drawing. So that's dead, and so is the Twitter (probably), I don't like posting frequent updates, my personal life, or about so many things I do but aren't finished. (Hence why only once in a blue moon there is something new on here) So maybe stuff will pop up. Maybe sketches? If you guys are ok with that.

So see you at the next drawing update!

Sincerely, (The name wasn't supposed to be edgy)

-The Dying Sun

So Apparently...

2017-05-01 20:08:49 by TheDyingSun

So yeah... I now how a Twitter and Twitch for some reason. Still under the name The Dying Sun. Luckily things are clearing up and hopefully I'll be able to draw more. The set up for both right now is in the works so don't expect anything AMAZING. Twitter won't be used often, probably teeny updates...

And when I hear "Twitch" all I think is: female gamers, they're evolving!

All I can say is HOPE and PRAY TO YOUR MOMMA, that all should go well.

P.S. I did a (really quick) test stream, why the heck were there 10 people?


Edit: Been testing stream etc. for the past week. The stream HAS improved... but still has issues...

Happy Pico Day!

2017-04-30 15:16:19 by TheDyingSun

Happy Pico Day peeps!

Not much to say but, all the drawings on the front page are what I expected of the Newground community XD. (*cough* *cough* Deathink's PicOrgy)

Three cheers to another year for Newgrounds! And for many years to come!
