Back again, guess who's back

So! I have made the stop motion puppets, I got the props, and I got the know how to make a stop motion short animation.


Progress on the initial stop motion short has been rewritten so many freaking times due to the budget I have.  But I have finally made a compromise, making the short take place in one setting. 


I will be positng loops of my progress later on these nexr few days.

It's done, it's finally done, I made the props and puppets for the stop motion project. I'll be posting some pics later on to show yall my progress. 

Making Stop Motion puppets

2018-03-10 12:32:27 by GreenGuy8


So I am currently making the stop motion puppets for the project due to the one prior have broke. One has a broken arm, the other was rendered completely useless due to worn wires.


BTW, I use "wire amatures" as my stop motion puppets. Not only are they easy to mass produce, they are by far the cheapest form of armatures you can make ona shoe string budget.

I'm thinking of posting some pictures of my progress, but we'll see.



I'm thnking of msking videos showing the process on how I make my stop motion puppets.

Speaking of my stop motions, I am actually looking for  a music producer for the project. You know someone, or have that rquirement, send a message my way. No I can't pay you with money, but I can pay in exposure. Which is even less than a dollar,lol.

Closing note, I will be MIA for a good long ass time, since I will be putty my heart and soul into this stop motion project. It will probably suck.

See you later

So apperently being new here automatically makes me a target to get chewed out by veteran users of the NewGrounds website. First 2 comments on my last post where legit critques on my situation with one of my videos being taken down.


One of the two comments however was typed badly on purpose by a 25 year old aspiering animator. I get that I am making "noob" mistakes but does it really warrant  me to be trolled? I thought the NG community was chill and had a helpful understanding community. . . . it does.

But like anywhere else in the internet, there is an ugly side. And that side has no issue with making itself known. I'm not gonna let some petty 25 year old troll comment get me though. I'm still gonna make my stop motion, and I will progress as a better animator.  Hell even if it comes off as crap first, I will get better over time.

It's like these animators who got their skill down to a "T" forget how badly they started out. Well, I'm not going to be one of those animators.

My first video taken down

2018-03-08 09:33:15 by GreenGuy8

Context, the video that was taken down was NOT my very first video I uploaded here. It was a stop motion loop that had the lowest veiws. I find it off putting that videos that do not have a lasting veiw count are automativcally deleted. 

Just a reminder though, I am new to the NG community so maybe there is a logical reason to this method I do not understand.


In other news, work for longer stop motion videos are still in progress. This will be complete around the next month or so, given how much effort I am putting into it. 

This stop motion short will be all slap stick, physical comedy, and gun fights. Hope you all are looking forward to it.

Progress so far

Hello fellow humans, tis I. . . the "GREEN GUY"! Puns aside, work on these stop motion have been great, responses are as expected too. The feed back I get from comments are well welcomed critiques on what I could do to make my videos better. Shout out to this awesome person on the tip about, "in between frames"



Closing statement, now that I have the general know how and muscle memory to make stop motions again, I actually feel confident enough to go for making a 2-3 minute short. There is just one thing I feel I need to practice on, something mportant that well really show my growth as a stop motion animator.

Stay tuned yall, you'll see it soon.

Oh boy! Here we go!

Hello watchers, speaking of watchers, here is a shout to the newest member of our ranks


Thanks for the watch my friend.

In other news, Work on the stop motion projects begin "NOW"! Like right now.

The plan is that I will be making 25-60 second stop motion videos. Why you may aske? Because I am way out of practice to actually make a 4 min stop motion. I just recently made a stop motion test and BOY HAVE I LOST MY TOUCH!

But nothing like some practice will cure that. 

Lastly, I just want to point out how amazing the responses are for posts here. For real the moment I post a drawing or my stop motion loops the response is instant. I love it, and regret not starting with NewGrounds before YouTube, 

My first issue

2018-03-03 14:10:50 by GreenGuy8

So today like a few minutes ago before this post, I was trying to upoad another one f my stop motion loops. This loop was about the same as the first 2 of my stop motion loops. 

Then, for some un-explained reason, an Error was detected. Something about "audio files" and "not the correct file type". 

Thing is, it's a MP4 file. Secondly, the video is 100% mute, silent. I attempted a few more times and it just kept reading the same thing. I tried a few of the other files I planned on uploading, and the same thing happened.

I went ahead and messaged @TomFulp regarding this minor issue. Hopefully this gets resolved soon, because if I can't upload my stop motions here, I'll have to upload it to YouTube.

Post of the Week, MARCH!

2018-03-02 15:09:53 by GreenGuy8

Hello my 4 watchers, hope your days are going well. Mine is a bit bland and every second I am questioning whether I should go back to having a job.

Any way, progress on the stop motion project has been going slow. If you call me procrastinating since after I wrote the skript and complete the story boards "slow progress". But I made it this far to spend 300$ ona budget to make the props, buy props, and make the wire puppets, I might as well finish it.

In other news, I have been touching up on my editing and stop motion animating skills with some improvement. DragonFrame software really helps spped production up, so I am really not all to concerned with how long the vidoe will take.

Over all, this is the first week of March, hope you guys are having a great week, and I'll hear from you all again when I feel like posting another post.
