lots of stuff going on. :)

LARRY 2:
will be 8 minutes long, I'm well into the animation (big opening fight scene). I've recreated Kikket's entire training room in 3D to make some dramatic scenes even cooler.
If you're keen on getting updates on this movie, join the JazzaStudios Forums, where I'll be sharing weekly updates, as i did with Larry and the Gnomes.
ETA is roughly 8-9 weeks.

TUTORIALS:
I've been getting requests for a long time since I last posted flash/drawing tutorials, so I'm going to put more together and this time I'll take requests. Some of the more common ones I've gotten have been things like:
-villains
-lip syncing
-layer organization
what would you like to have? post a reply.

ROBOT DAY:
moonkey and I will be making a simple game, nothing major, just something fun, I mean, how can't you? it's ROBOT day!

I'd also encourage everyone who can to help Back the newgrounds Docco, I did, your mother did, so you should. How exciting! :)

Game Team: ASSEMBLE!

2010-03-28 07:20:51 by Jazza

The team has gathered for the making of what is planned to be a BIG game.
"LARRY and the GNOMES"

ANIMATION/ART/VOICES - Myself

CODE - MOONKEY
this guy is EPIC. I worked with him on the Paladin game and Brotherhood of Battle. Everything he touches turns to gold. Best coder I know.

MUSIC - DAVID ORR
EPIC! Davids orchestral mixing and synths bring to life big games (IE: sonny)

VOICE - GEOFF EDWARDS
Ever heard of the Xombie series? well, you know that main guy? Dirge? yeah, that's Geoff. One of the richest voices ever to be heard in a flash series. Well, he'll be playing a big role in this project!

ADDITIONAL ART - KAMIKAYE
This dude makes some of the most incredible imagery. He's on board to do some incredible work for cutscenes and story progression!

SOUND EFFECTS/VOICES - ZACH STRIEFEL
There's a reason i've involved this dude ever since i started working with him. He's GREAT, that's why. Check out a demo reel he scratched up, keep in mind that aside from the music in the video below, ALL SOUND is custom made by zach. (he's very affordable so anyone interested in sound, TALK TO THE GUY!)

.

DETAILS ON THE GAME:
-sidescolling brawler (IE dad'n me)
-BLOOD n GORE

New GAME, New WEBSITE, New WEB COMIC, new VIDEO...

NEW GAME:

"Larry: Doug-Out"
it's a relatively simple game, endurance based, played as the Alesman of Karryon, selling as much ale as possible before the Town Drunk, Doug, can get to your supply!

While Larry is not in the game, it is based in the world of his series, and my overall aim other then his main story, is to convey a rich world of recognisable characters, and this game is another one of those small steps. in time i hope there to be many larry games, but also many games based around other characters and events!

NEW WEBSITE:

www.jazzastudios.com
After years of crappy designs and manual updated in dreamweaver, i finally have a website with a great back end, nice database setup, and it look a lot more inviting then any other version of the website i've made.

NEW WEBCOMIC:

Check it out

The Webcomic based around the LARRY series is also released, it will be weekly, top keep those who are interested in the series from asking me constantly for more larry content. Hopefully it will tide you over until each new submission!

NEW VIDEO:

i had an urge to make a music video a few weeks ago, so i did, it's of my cover to owl city's fireflies. To those of you who hate the song, i don't apologise, i love it. and that's ok. after all, where would the world be without differences in musical taste?

.

CHECK EM ALL OUT!
i've been working my bum off lately and i really hope to offer you guys some valuable entertainment!!

New GAME, New WEBSITE, New WEB COMIC, new VIDEO...
