Thought I'd let you know my website is updated to include a quote generator for commission work. Check it out if you're interested in hiring an artist for custom art or animation!

Massive thanks to Lochie for putting the page together for me.

Goddammit I wish I were in Philly this year. Oh well, next year.

Anyhow, I hope you all enjoy your day! I made something to contribute. It took me around 10 hours, I'm pretty happy with the result.

Here it is on the art portal

And here's the speedpainting of it:

Hey all

I've started a segment on my Youtube Channel in which I showcase the artwork of people on newgrounds who send me their art. I've been sent hundreds of artworks and while I can't showcase all of them, I am reviewing everything sent to me.

In addition to being featured on my Showcase Videos on Youtube, Tom Fulp has agreed to let me pick one of the atworks every week to feature on the front page of Newgrounds!

I'm enjoying seeing and reviewing people's work, and have gotten a great response from artists who have enjoyed the extra exposure and sharing experience.

If you'd like me to review your art work, have a chance to be in a future artist showcase video, and perhaps win a spot on the Newgrounds Front Page, PM me a link to ONE of your recent artworks (Keywords: ONE + RECENT) and I'll review it and consider it for a showcase! Make sure the word 'SHOWCASE' in capital letters is in the PM subject title so I know what it's about, and make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel so you can see the showcase videos as they come out!

/* */
PS: I don't mean to come across as considering myself the authority on all-things-art, I just like the sharing experience, and I have an audience on Youtube that while small, is enthusiastic and friendly which I'd like to enjoy you participating in! :)

Hey all

As some of you know I've been pretty enthusiastic about making tutorials and speedpainting lately. Well I wanted to pop in to mention I've just uploaded a tutorial set on painting in Photoshop in detail so you can see how I go about it, and will be uploading a new part each day. Make sure to subscribe to get those updates.

/* */
I've been enjoying making lots of art lately, my most recent one being of the Game Grumps, and I have a few in mind next. I'm a huge Dota 2 fan so doubtless I'll be doing a few heroes from that game, as well as some tribute images to some books I've really enjoyed over the past year (in particular, Mistborn, and the Name of the Wind).

Any other ideas for some paintings?

Hai gais

I got instagram, so follow me if you're into that kinda thing ('josiahbrooks'). I'll take hipster pictures of food, I PROMISE.

I'm going to be trying to cultivate a pedo mustache this month for Movember, since pedo mustache is the only kind of mustache my body wants to grow.

Also a reminder to subscribe to my DrawWithJazza youtube channel. It's more than just drawing tutorials, I do a few speedpaints every month, for example, a few days ago I made a speed painting tribute to V, for the 5th of november:

Also, if you're American, you should vote, coz I can't, and your country effects mine unfortunately and I have no option but to watch as we all crash and burn. It's OK though because the world ends in less than two months. coz of the Mayans or some shit.

By far my personal favorite of the Game Jam submissions I've been a part of making, my team has just finished our entry to the Cabin Jam - and Here it IS

Big props to Matt, Greg and Zach for this one, we had less time than all of the other jams (2 days instead of 3), our talented voice actors for their last minute help, and lochie for helping with some in betweens. I've had only 5 hours sleep in the last 48 hours.

I hope this game makes you wee yourself a little bit.

Hey all

Greg, Zach and I participated in the second NG Movie Jam and just finished. I'm personally mega happy with it, as always I'm astounded by Greg and Zach's awesome work, and I personally animated the most content I ever have in less than 48 hours.

Check out our entry!

Also, If you haven't yet, check out (and subscribe to) my Drawing Tutorial channel on Youtube. Here's one of the many fun lessons to be had:

Hey guys

I've been pretty active on my DrawWithJazza youtube account where I upload drawing/animation tutorials and speedpaints. Most recently I finished this painting of Slender Man and uploaded the speedpaint for it too.

/* */
I also made a flash tutorial covering the very basics of animation in flash. For those who find it useful, I've also got other animation tutorials covering things like walk cycles and lip syncing etc.

/* */
Anyhow. I had a very productive day and felt like sharing it coz now my ass is sore and my hand is numb.

Hey guys!

Just pooping in to show you the result of my very productive day today, I painted this and filmed/sped the process:

I also made a video tutorial for people new to using flash who would like some basic tips and tools:

If you like this kind of thing (speedpaints and/or tutorials) make sure to check out my youtube channel dedicated to such things, and if you like what you see, subscribe, share it around, etc.

Anyhow, toodles!
