I was just checking Twitter and I was strangely surprised to see RIP Edd Gould on the trending topics; my first thought was "is the Edd Gould from Eddsworld?" then I saw the video and a lot of Newgrounders tweeting it and I had to came here to confirm the sad news.
What the fuck man. He was incredibly awesome and I'm so sad that this happened :'(

Check later posts in this thread. I have accepted that it is real after Luis and Wade confirming it.
I seriously never heard of Eddsworld before now. I feel uncool.
For I am and forever shall be... a master ruseman.
i feel bad for all the kid eddsworld fans dude. their audience was largely 12 year olds and shit who aren't used to handling this kind of stuff. if my favorite animator died when i was 11 i would be fucking devastated.
Oh my god, this is really getting to me. I've been a huge fan of Eddsworld for years, there was a period where I was almost obsessed with Edd's work and checked the site every day for months. I actually started drawing, one of the biggest features of my personality, by learning Edd's style in 5th or 6th grade and spending the next few years developing as an artist and making my own style.
R.I.P Edd. You inspired me so much, gave me so much entertainment, and helped to make me who I am today.
Knowing Edd, I was waiting for it to be a joke at the end of the video.
I'm still going on with the fact that he's about to upload another video within the next few days stating it was a joke. At least, I hope :/

If anyone's coming here to troll, it would be best not replying to them and allow one of the mods to clear the crap out of this thread.
I made this for him.
I think the first flash I have seen by Edd was his Sugar Sugar flash back in 07. I found it really funny that there is probably some one out there more obsessed with cola then I am. He was a really great guy. Never heard him say anything bad about anyone. It really couldn't have happened to someone nicer. Everyone on NG will miss you man. Rest in Peace Edd Gould.
"I need a katana to slice a banana"
As the person who did all of his icons for the newgrounds redesign I feel as though I have lost a good friend. He will be missed very much.
See you on the other side bro.
He will be missed very, very dearly.
I used to watch EddsWorld all the time...
Wow. I'm in disbelief.
He's part of what inspired me to start becoming an animator.... Please, please tell me this is a joke?
No. It can't be.
Goodbye, Edd....I'll miss you....
I've been hearing about edd's struggles through the last six years and this is heatbreaking, I thought for a while he'd leave cancers bloody corpse in a dark alley and emerge a champ, looks like cancer slit his throat after escaping a headlock
we all lose loved ones to cancer, we just lost one more
I am deeply saddened by this loss, when I found the YouTube video, I generally refused to believe it. We all just need to comprehend this for a minute, Edd Gould, one of the most amazing, inspirational, and brightly humorous creators ever, and he's gone. I, like many, found myself tearing up. It's sad because of his death, but it's also sad why everyone missed him, all it seemed he did was create animations. Looking back now, I did see quite a fight in him, he seemed to be a very cheery, happy, and nice person, those descriptions even shown in his little cartoons, and not even cancer could get him to detract from that feeling. I have been writing all this without tearing up, and I hate myself for that. RIP.
Go fuck yourself.
I'm going to miss Edd too. He provided me with many laughs with the animations he released. May he rest in peace.
I just remember watching Hammer & Fail 2 a week ago, laughing and enjoying myself, completely oblivious that the show I was currently watching would be his last....
We'll miss you, Edd. We'll miss you.
Oh my god, I have not the words.
I've e-grown up with his flashes. They really are important to me-one of my most potent memories of winter was voting Xmas Day into the portal and then playing out in the snow with my friend, which was awesome. None of that would have happened if I hadn't called him up to tell him that Xmas Day was under judgement.
Ultimately, his flashes, among others, helped me through a really shitty time in my life-in some cases making me laugh shortly after I had cried. His presence has had an overall positive effect on me, and he will truly be missed.
Goodbye Edd Gould. Rest in peace.

Two days after his birthday...
Today Newgrounds lost a classic NG artist - one who shaped countless other animators during his time here.
I see his animation style in new artists' flashes all over this site, which gives me confidence that eddsworld's legacy will carry on.
Edd served as strong inspiration for many of us.
The thing about him, was that he had an undeveloped talent, which after many years, he improved through hard work and dedication. His writing had remarkable wit, it was just pure comedy. Pure comedy that was appropriate, yet targeted at people of all ages. He really showed that anyone can create a story as long as they put their heart into it.
I feel for his family, Tom, Matt, Psychicpebbles, Rubberninja, and anyone else who knew him personally. He truely was a top bloke.
