Hey everyone!


Just a quick update about my student film, Mr. Beachcomber.

The voices have been filled by @saminat and @dreojpuerte and myself, but seriously thanks to everyone who took the time to offer their voices. It made me really happy to see so many people showing support and excitement for this project, so I can't wait to have it finished for all of you!


I'm planning on having my film done between July and August. Normally this would've been finished in April but covid kinda fucked up my whole thesis process and I lost a good amount of time I had for the original deadline. Nevertheless, I'm making something I'm real proud of, so I'll let you guys know the exact release date ASAP. I've been working real hard and you will be seeing Mr Beachcomber REAL soon.


Here's an extra little sneak peak as evidence:



There's a lot more but I don't wanna spoil too much! I'll be back with more soon


Thanks again ya beautiful bastards!!!

HELLO I NEED VOICE ACTORS AND MUSICIANS FOR MY SENIOR THESIS FILM "MR. BEACHCOMBER."


Here is a link to the collab post with all the details.


This is a paid opportunity and pretty neat one at that. If you wanna work on a gross, dark, and funny film that could make or break my entire career as an animator, then please reach out! I'm willing to answer all questions if you got any.

You can PM me or e-mail me at RatChiliArt@gmail.com


Thanks y'all.

SO here's a new thing I made:



It's small but I felt like I needed to post SOMETHING.


Anywho, I've been surviving the pandemic fine thus far. I'm still working and doing what I can to produce content for school and for you wonderful people online. I'm gonna try and upload smaller things more frequently, so hopefully you'll be seeing more of me around. Not like I'm gonna be outside or anything lmao.


As for a life update, my school has been switched to an online curriculum for the remainder of the semester and we've all been kicked off campus. It's a very anxious, depressing, confusing time to be alive and a lot of young artists have had internships and jobs they worked very hard for suddenly cancelled due to everything happening. So if you can, throw some extra love to all the artists who are still doing their best to produce content for everyone in these dark times! Hell I'm broke but I'm still an NG supporter!


So stay strong and work hard, everyone!

Also wash ur fucking hands.

GO WATCH IT HERE!!

I'm trying things out for my upcoming thesis film that won't be done for another year lmao.

I'm SUPER early in the development stages and just wanted to try my hand at animating with texture and focussing more on backgrounds. So it's a little self contained thing but I'm hoping to make something similar to this that's much more developed in the next year. SO keep your eyes peeled for updates on that whole thing :D


Anyways, hope y'all enjoy<3

HELLO AGAIN, EVERYONE.

WATCH MY NEW CARTOON PLEASE:



(it's got food-related violence again, hehe)


It's a fun little animation I made for a studio assignment. We had to create a minute long animation that includes rotoscope in some way. I came up with this idea for a funny little old-timey PSA thing about the dangers of the real world. It was a bit of a challenge figuring out how to blend rotoscope with an originally animated character, but I enjoy the outcome.


It's been a very busy semester, so I haven't been able to keep up much around here. However, with how much shit I'm making, hopefully some of it will make it's way back onto my page once I get a moment to even upload any of it. Bare with me, there's plenty of stuff coming in the near future! (Or don't, worst I'll do is cry myself to sleep.)


SEE YA, BABES<3

HEY EVERYONE!

Good news, I'm still alive.

or bad idk.


CHECK OUT MY LATEST ART PIECE


SOrry I haven't posted literally since May lmao. I had a busy busy summer making that fast food cash and now I am back at school again. *Hooray for constant suffering.* But at least it means I will be producing more content!! I've got a lot of projects coming up, so hopefully I'll be able to post some more in the near future. Milk it while you can, cowboys. I'll be back soon!


BYE.

It's true, WATCH MY NEW ANIMATION HERE:




I put a lot of heart into it. It's a story told by my Dad about how he defeated an elementary school bully using only his wits and a Twinkie. I tried experimenting with some new mediums and such, so it was a lot of fun and I hope y'all will check it out!!


NOW FOR SOME UPDATES:

Who the hell is Rat-Chili?: OKAY so basically I needed to rebrand. I was Nosferaytu before but as cool as that name is, it's way to dang close to being "Nosferatu" which made it impossible to find me. I was originally just going to go by my actual name, but I remembered that my last name is literally impossible to spell. Instead, I have decided to make my alias a fun simplification of my real name.


THUS, I am now RAT-CHILI.


I'm gonna work a bit more on my image and identity on the site, but I think the current vibe I've got going will suffice for now. I hadn't had the time before but I just finished my second year at Pratt, which is my first year of animation. It was a tough feat but I made some stuff I was proud of.


My goals for this summer is to release another animation I have planned and to work on some animated gifs since I just wanna make some cool shorter-length stuff for the time being. So stick around and hopefully you'll see something you like!


Stay tuned<3

HAPPY PICO DAY EVERYONE!


I love this website to death, so it's always so great to see everyone come together for a day to celebrate the amazing community Newgrounds has fostered over the years. Hopefully one of these days I'll be able to come to a celebration myself! Maybe another year when Pico Day and college finals don't overlap teehee.


SPEAKING OF FINALS: On a personal update, THERE WILL BE A NEW ANIMATION VERY SOON.


It's all done and completed already, but it's also a personal piece made that features my dad. So, I'd like to wait until I'm back home to have a family screening before putting it anywhere online. You can expect my film sometime between the 21st and the 22nd. So mark your calendars!


It's my longest animation to date, so I hope you all will enjoy it<3


See y'all soon. Crack open a cold one for Pico for me and don't clog any toilets :^)

HELLO! I've been kind of quiet, but LOOK AT THIS GIF I MADE.


I'm gonna be brief about this because I have class in 15 minutes as I type this. But school's got me KNEE DEEP in work; some of it fun, some of it not so fun. The important part is that it's mostly all related to animation, which means at least if the work makes me wanna die it'll only make me more powerful.


I have been uploading little fun things here and there you should definitely check out. Mostly the first link, but HERE'S another little animated gif about emotion, and HERE'S a fun little animated gif I did as a logo for a couple of film dudes.


Also, be sure to check out this mixed-media animation I did that was inspired by a rap song I like:



You should expect another project from me within the next couple months. It's about my Dad which is cool.


Hope to see y'all soon again.<3

Here is my final for Animation Studio 1 at Pratt. The assignment was to make a 30 second animation and boy did I slave over it. It's based on a comic I made last semester for my drawing final: 

https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/nosferaytu/junked-food

I pulled 2 all nighters for this baby. Food characters really resonate with me for some reason, I worked real hard to bring them to life for y'all. With Animation Studio 2 coming straight towards me, you can expect a lot more of things like this in the future.

It feels good to upload something like this to a place I care so much about.

Tell me what you think, tank boys n girls!
