Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 196 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

This is a lil image dump for the process of my halloween cartoon, "THE SONG FROM A DREAM"

Watch it here:



The winners were just announced and I snagged an honourable mention! Way too many good submissions this year :))


On to the dumping, here are some initial drawings:

This was the first doodle, just a weird arrowheaded guy beside a bunch of other dumb drawings, I like that fat, smiling teardrop rock guy too.....


Anyway I liked his style and Halloween was a good while away, I knew I wanted to do something where a guy gets lost in a new town and it was looking like it'd be this guy.

Actually made a 'model sheet' for this design.

But I had to dial it way back, Halloween was looming.......

Here was the final design, got it simplified with hopefully enough personality.


A lot of stuff was cut from the cartoon, not just for time but the concept just kept changing. Might update this later with a few of the cut shots. But for now here is James' model sheet and some cut characters:



Lastly here are a couple shots of the first storyboard pass:
