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: 


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!

Lookie what I made: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/719833

I've been doing a lottttt of traditional animation for my studio class this semester, with a lot of the animations being types of exercises. However, this last assignment was to create a fight scene so I was able to make something that others could enjoy. It was also done in pencil, however I used some compositing for things like backgrounds and such. Animation is CrAzYyYy.

I have the final for the semester upcoming and everyone's going to try and make something great. I'm hoping to do the same. This time I'll be working digitally, so hopefully I'll have a nice and polished, 20-30 second cartoon for you all come early December.

Everyone watch this video, it's very good. A very accurate depiction of city lifestyle.

Hey, LOOK AT MY ART: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/nosferaytu/spring-dong

I spent a lot of time on this baby and I think it looks pretty dang good, probably the best digital piece I've ever done. Please roast me.

Also I'm starting my second year at Pratt, so ya boy's about to get busy again. At least there's plenty of tasty bagel places nearby to wipe all my tears with. Wish me luck!!

Hello again.

It's me, NosferGAYtu. Honestly, I've been a somewhat unproductive sack of doo-doo (excuse my language) lately. However, I've pumped out a piece of Papa's Day if y'all are interested: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/nosferaytu/old-crow-2018

I spent a good deal of time job hunting and finally found myself as a "Sandwich Artist" at Subway. So now when I apply for jobs in the future, I can note that I do portraits in both charcoal and mustard on coldcuts. Plus I think it's reviving my dead corpse back into a semi-living art man by forcing me to live a more productive life which is cool. Hope this means I'll upload again soon, but who knows??

Anyways, see ya l8r sk8rs.

I uploaded my first piece o' art here on Newgrounds in 2018, GO SEE: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/nosferaytu/junked-food

Anywho, I'm just here at Pratt in the midst of FINALS HAHAHA. In fact that latest piece I uploaded was the final assignment for my lovely foundation drawing class that I will actually miss. I've never worked so hard in my life yet I've never been so happy either. Maybe it's stockholm syndrome?? Regardless, I got NO sleep for that piece and it was totally worth it in my eyes.

Now that my first year at Pratt is coming to an end, y'all can look forwards to more uploads in the near future. If I intend to maintain my skills, I gotta practice. Otherwise my arm will just deflate into a useless meat balloon and I'll probably end up on TLC for being a lazy sack of shit. Overall, it was a very good year that definitely benefitted me as both an artist and a person.

I'm sad to see it end but excited to make more art for here.

Be back soon, lovelies.

Today's the magical day where baby Christ had to violently claw his way through Mary's thick, untouched hymen to claim his spot as the true son of God. And much like our lord and savior, I had a wonderful morning clawing my way through presents in the spirit of the holiday.

Now even though neither me or any of my direct family believes in most of that, Christmas is the most wonderful cult celebration and definitely places itself as my favorite holiday. Honestly, no other holiday gave me such a large amount of free time combined with such good food and gifts all around. But if you're one of those BOZOS who thinks Halloween amounts to anything as great as Christmas, feel free to let me take your days off so I can keep jerking off to how great the holiday spirit feels. I sure do love me some gingerbread.

Anywho, as far as an update goes, I survived my first semester at Pratt. Feels pretty great, but I can get more sentimental about it if I do a New Years update. But basically, it's been a positive experience all around and I definitely feel growth in both my skills and myself as a functioning human being. Being home with gifts and loads of time to relax definitely feels like a good reward that'll help me recharge for my next helping of "what the fuck this is too much work."

As for my art, I don't know if I'll upload any more before 2018, but if I do, I'll be sure to announce it. As for now, here's that Fat Albert piece I did about a month ago: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/nosferaytu/phat-albert CHECK IT OUT, WON'T YA?

I hope y'all had a merry as HECK Christmas and that Santa didn't use too much tongue this year.

Hello, everybody.

I am officially a college student.

"A college student??", you ask, drooling from your pale swollen lips that whisper about the fading days of mario flash parodies. Yes, a college student.

I'm currently attending Pratt Intitute, majoring in 2D Animation. That's right, your boy's finally taking a big leap towards a career in animation. One that is hopefully successful and not composed of direct-DVD Barbie films you find in the 2-dollar bin at Wal-Mart. Needless to say, I'm very excited.

I've been at Pratt for about two weeks now, the first being orientation and the second being my first official week of classes. It's very unique atmosphere. I'm still wrapping my 3rd-grade-reading-level mind around the fact that I no longer have to worry about math classes anymore, and that I'm finally at a place of creative people for creative people. I'm finally a place I stressed so much about getting to, a place that meant everything to me. I'd call it home, but it's more like RV taking me to a place I want to be in life. But don't get me wrong, this RV is cozy as fuck.

I've made a good deal of friends so far, people who've already begun to inspire me and show me new ways to look at and interpret art. It's fucking crazy. I've met people from all sorts of grades and majors, all from different parts of the world. It's one of my favorite things to see such different people be so similar simply because there's something about everyone's experience that led them to a place where they could create or design content for the world. No matter how everyone's lives were tailored, they somehow found themselves at Pratt.

I know I haven't been around much at all, and I'm sure this post kind of explains it. Getting shit together for such a big change isn't exactly a 1-hour task. I wish I could upload more here since I feel like I owe it to NG, but for now I'm gonna focus more on college tasks and see what I can do from there. Newgrounds gave me the chance to discover my passion, so it's only fair that at some point that I start giving back.

I made my Newgrounds account when I was 9 years old. From that age, I discovered the power a person has to create and produce content. It amazed me how anyone with the passion and resources could create the most amazing, beautful, imaginative, and even hilarious things for the world to see. I knew from that point on that I wanted to be an artist, specifically an animator if I could manage that. I never stopped watching cartoons, I never stopped drawing, I never stopped taking inspiration. Newgrounds was my first step towards a creative career, and here I am now, typing this message from Pratt. As I take this next big step towards being an animator, I'll never forget the uniquely inspiring world of creators that led me down this path. There's nothing quite like Newgrounds, and without it, I'm not sure if I'd be where I am today.

I hope to be back at some point soon, maybe even with some quality diarrhea to digitally smear across the web's face. Or at the very least, new skills and knowledge about art and animation.

Thanks again, Newgrounds, for everything (by everyone).

Where has the scrawny, essay writing, future failed art student been at? Where's that whack, curly haired, swedish-fish-for-dinner half normie who laughs when it's least appropriate? He came and he left like Newgrounds was a porn set. I need to know where that limp dick, artsy muppet's been at. I miss him.

I was at Applebees, fuck, calm down.


Now if I'm being real, I been busier than a bee if that bee was also a business man. Sure, a lot of the shit I been saying lately is a little race-based, but I guess that's what happens when you spend the past few months focussed on reality in a town full of mostly white people. Sometimes the craziest thing I'll see all day is a chinese person. 

Again, now let me be real, I been up to so much shit. First and foremost, I graduated. Your boy's about to hit the grown up world and the grown up world about to Mike Tyson my life apart with college debt. But hey, sometimes you just gotta spend tens of thousands of dollars to become a trained artist in the world. Seems fair, at least they're not asking for my first born child this time around.

On top of that, I went on my senior trip, held back tears at the senior bash, I got a new job and got fired from it for being busy with graduation, been hanging out with friends nonstop, and partying a lot because that shit is real college prep. I'm headed to Pratt towards the end of August and I'd like to not end up embarassing myself and/or dying because I was unaware of how to handle party situations. Plus all that fun and freedom I been experiencing lately has been with a great group of people who I can safely say I'll miss once I'm out of this milktoast town of mine.

The past few months I been gone, I changed a lot. I been a lot more social, confident, energetic, and pretty healthy. Unfortunately, I also haven't had any DANG time to make any DANG art pieces. Now that all the graduation shit is slowing down, I'm hoping to make some more stuff I can upload so stay tuned. Even if I don't upload much, I'll try to be more active here with posts and whatnot. Hell, who knows how much college will consume my time once I'm there. Hopefully I'll be able to upload higher quality shit with all I'll be learning though.

Thanks for being patient, babes<33 I can't promise I'll be back soon, but I promise if you keep your eyes peeled, you'll see some mint garbage I'll have uploaded.

Aight, allow me to once again spew the contents of my life onto this digital journal like some halfbrained "Diary of a WImpy Kid" fanboy. My life's been moving fast, especially the social aspect, so it was bothering me to see that same goshDAMN post from last month sit so long.

Most importantly, LOOK I MADE ART AGAINhttp://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/chat-man/super-monkey-baller-julian

Oh, also I'm legally an adult now. I can legally be in the army, smoke, sell alcohol but no consume it, and be charged as a pedophile. Truly a magical age to exist at.

A lot's been going on over the past month, with my birthday, prom, 4 AP classes I survived, losing friends but getting closer with ones I have, and mmmmm that new Gorillaz album tho. Basically I been busy as fuck but now my schedule cleared up, especially with no more APs in my way. Especially AP Art jesus christ I was up until like 5am painting pretty pictures and sculpting out clay peepees for that class. Guess I'm ready 4 college now!!!

With all this free time I plan on getting more digital stuff done, so hopefully y'all will see more from me very soon. And who knows, maybe I'll upgrade this blog from toilet paper for my personal life into something better. Maybe the headquarters for the Jimmy Neutron hentai fanclub?? Anything's better than this.

Anywho, expect to see me back real soon, fellas!! I got plenty more arts in store for your precious lil retinas to beat off to<333
