A YouTube animator on a Newgrounds podcast?? What??

Welcome to our first "outsider" interview! The idea is that as Newgrounds creators, we can get inspiration from anything - not just from other content on Newgrounds. We're creators of art on the internet, and why limit ourselves to just hearing from ourselves?

Yes, this is still a podcast for Newgrounds and for Newgrounds creators. Just with a different kind of guest. Think of it as a class field trip. And whether or not you agree with this kind of move, I can't wait to read your review. Seriously!

GROUNDS PATROL is a podcast dedicated to informing and inspiring Newgrounds creators. New episodes come out every other Wednesday and feature artist interviews and roundtable discussions.

That Character Animator program really does seem interesting... and one by Adobe no less! Expected it to be some small spin-off-no-one-ever-heard of thing. Will definitely look into that.

Also would invite GetMadz to join up at the place that really started it all too, NG, right here. Ain't no place like it! Maybe signing up for an NG account could be a pre-requisite for being in these podcasts? ;) He/you (if you're reading this) seem(s) like a pretty creative dude.

I like the idea of bringing in new perspectives too. And new people. Also feels like the YT community might be more like the lunch room that GetMadz describes, whereas NG is that small, enclosed circle where everyone knows everyone, and bonds overtime, overcoming mutual hardships and all those trials and tribulations that both smaller platforms and creators face. So y'know, that account's just a click away...

Anyhow: great convo. Looking forward to more of these, though hope you keep inviting certified NG peeps too. There's so many I'd like to hear here. Deathink, Sabtastic, Tom(noneedtotypeoutlastname), Cheetoh, ClockworkPixel, TheComet, ZebraHumor, TylerLandis, EdBound, MrNannings, MarkAnime, SouljaBoy, KarlSia, MLeth, SomeonesEx, Ant0on, ChazDude, artistunkown, MistyEntertainment, d-z, Deprixon, RadioTubeClock, Pop-Tart, SBC (and other clocks), Kol-Belov, BrentHeMan, Jaime-R, Kel-chan and sucho just to name a few. If for some reason you felt you were running out of interesting people. ;)

Keep up the good works!


willKMR responds:

Whoa! Thanks for the great list!

I haven't seen any proper storytime animators in Newgrounds so this might be a good way to introduce that here. The bit with the animated livestream idea is super interesting. I'm not sure what to say about the whole "outsider interview" idea itself, but this one was quite nice.

This should have a section on the front page.

GroundsPatrol responds:

Thank you! In fact, it does!


I dont see it as a limit interviewing Newgrounds creators given the choice. NG tends to attract unique artists who bust there ass doing what they love. If anything its inspiring.

I mean look at your episode list. Each one of those beautiful unique motherfuckers are on NG.
How many more interesting users are on NG? 10? 20? A billion?

Plenty to not feel limited in my humble opinion.

I hate to say it but this felt like a field trip to IKEA.
