A Final Farewell

2017-04-30 15:27:41 by Chongo

Well this was two years too late.

Yeah, I haven't posted anything here in two years, so I honestly wouldn't be surprised if none of y'all even remember me, but I thought that today, on Pico Day, I'd spend some time reminiscing. Because even though I haven't been here in a while and even though I've moved elsewhere, I wouldn't have traded my time here for anything else.

I first came here in 2010, and I was just posting a few little songs I made with my first DAW. Outside of posting my occasional music piece I didn't do much until 2012. When 2012 came, I started to become a part of this community. I would always scour the collaboration board to see if anyone needed a piece of music or a bit of voice acting. I wasn't always great at it, but I got out there. I got to collaborate, and I got to be a part of something with others, which was something almost entirely new for me.

2012 is when I learned about NATA, the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation. I managed to make my way into the NATA Skype Chat, where I made a ton of new friends and met a bunch of fantastically talented artists, animators, other voice actors, musicians. All of these people were fantastic, and the time with everyone I collaborated with were some amazing years. I'd spend every day checking out the new movies everyone put out, I'd occasionally put up some of the music I was making. It was also when I changed my online alias from my old name to Chongo, which I think meant a lot to me.

Ever since I left Newgrounds, I've made other friends and I even started a band with one (it's called Go! Child if you're interested), but I couldn't have gotten the skills to improve my music without y'all's feedback. I'm not on Newgrounds anymore, but you guys helped me to become the person I am today (as sappy as that is). And if you're still interested in following what I do, I have a tumblr you can follow.

In short, the community of Newgrounds has been nothing but fantastic to me, and while I've moved on to different projects outside of Newgrounds, the time I spent here has been and will continue to be looked back on with nothing but fondness.

Thank you. All of you.

NATA and Spagoots

2015-07-13 12:14:42 by Chongo

Whats up Newgrounds? Quick update as to what I've been doing lately!

First of all, some voicework I did for NATA! I always love the NATA season because I get to work with super talented NG animators to make some quality stuff! I had a heyday helping out wiht Open Round (and although I'm late to announce these, they still deserve recognition!)

First we have An Absolute Fact by Perrobang! This is a VERY thought-provoking animation about mayn facts of life and about the potential end of the world. It's a riveting script with some star animation along with great voice acting from my friendo codeblackhayate and Rixian

Next we have Lay down the facts by Cyan Sandwich! This one was SUPER fun to record, and is quite funny!

Finally we have Jakes Presentation by MCakeri! A very fun piece where I play a teacher, which funny enough matches my summer job as a camp counselor!

Now for Spagoots!

Some of you may have peeked at a song I released last night called "Spagoots"! In short, it's basically a theme song for a new webseries I'm doing by the same name! Basically it's me and four friends just talking about stuff we love as we create! It's super fun, it's new and you should totally check it out!

HERE IT IS!!!!

Specifically, if you happen to be a fan of Steven Universe, check this out!

 



Well it's been a few months, hasn't it? I've had to take hiatus to make sure that classes were going well for me, but classes are over now. It's summer. Time to kick back, relax, and chill. And you know what other time of the year it is?

That's right! NATA Season!!!!

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation has officially begun, and I'm just as excited as the rest of us are! This is probably my favorite thing ever, and once again, I am open for helping anyone who needs it! Whether it be with voice acting, scriptwriting, musicmaking, I would be more than happy to help any animators with whatever they may need!

Also I may have a bit of a surprise for you all. But only time will tell if you all ever find out or care about it!

Till next time, take care Newgrounds!

LIFE HAX 2 OUT NOW

2015-02-11 01:24:40 by Chongo

 

Hey guys!! Remember about a year ago when a video came out called "Life Hax:Autosave"?

 

 

Well that was part one of the series between TalltotheSmall and I! Check out the new one (below) and follow TalltotheSmall

 


PATREON!

2014-11-15 09:51:10 by Chongo

So for those of you who don't know, along with voice acting, I also make music in my free time! You can find a random example here!

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/591300
(Sorry for no formatting. I'm on mobile...)

Anyway I'm hoping to publish my first album soon, and I would love any support possible for this hobby of mine, so I started up a Patreon!

http://patreon.com/ChongoMusic

For those who don't know, Patreon is a website similar to Kickstarter, only you pay a monthly gift and it keeps on going over time! If you want to support me, I sure won't stop you, and support or not, I'll still make music!

Thank you all very much!


NATA NOVICE ROUND COMPLETE!!!

2014-06-19 12:01:33 by Chongo

Hey everyone! NATA's all done and complete! So now I'll be showing off some of the awesome animatinos that I had the honor to be a part of!

Like last time, I'm going to show someone else off first, because I really liked his animation! So first, CHECK OUT MihaP's entry!  I worked with him last round, and this round, he has only gotten better! I'm just confused as to why he's only got 58 Fans! Go check out his stuff, because it's great!

Now onto what I voiced in! First off, I got to be with the fantabulous Sandwich-eater once again, where I drink alcohol and stab people, aka me in about three years.

 

Next, I got to work with Cenaf who took the theme and made something great! There's action! There's drama! And there's a goddess! What more could you want?

CHECK IT OUT HERE SINCE IT DOESNT EMBED!!!

 

Finally, I got to work with Whirlguy! Remember his Open Round Entry? Well his Novice round entry is actually a prequel to it! Watch them both for awesome added effect! (Featuring sketcheffect)

 

Also, if you notice, all of these also feature the stellar voice acting of my good friend codeblackhayate! Give her a follow too, since she just rocks the socks out of everything she voices in!

 

Also also, might as well make the subtle announcement that I'm making a game for Power of Four! Details will be revealed as they come...


NATA OPEN ROUND COMPLETE!

2014-05-30 16:10:00 by Chongo

Hey everyone! I'm a little late making this post, but in case you missed some of the Open Round entries for NATA, here's some of the ones I voiced in!

but before I show off my stuff, a couple of my Newgrounds friends, dylan and codeblackhayate joined forces and made one that just rocks


Now onto the stuff I was in. First we have Quest for the Cookie! It turned out really awesome and I think that MihaP did a great job bringing this through to fruition.

 


Alright! Next we have one that didn't get entirely finished, but it was still really quality. So here's the operation


Next we have one made by scottwjsm! It's a ton of fun to watch, so don't hesitate to check it out!


This one turned out to be a lot better than I expected at first! Made by the younger but talented MartinLarsson, I jeopardize the human race. Yay~


Finally, we got Slam Dunk! Made by the epic sandwich-eater, the most important question is asked! What is it with sandwich-eater making hilarious animations in a white void?


NATA Open Round was awesome! Hopefully these talented animators (and maybe more) will want me in their future stuff. Until then, this has been a spectacular open round, and I'm honored to have been useful to these guys!


THE ADVENTURE OF NATA BEGINS!

2014-05-03 16:02:21 by Chongo

So that magical time of the year is upon us! It's time for NATA!!

 

Anyway I like the theme and my mind has been juggling ideas around. Although I may actually compete this year and try my hand at animating (let's see how that ends up going)

 

Also, as usual, I'll be offering my voice acting and writing to any other NATA contestants who would like a hand! So PM if you want help.

 

EVERYBODY ENJOY NATA, because I know I will...

Good to be back

2014-03-28 11:56:14 by Chongo

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've been on Newgrounds. Figured I'd come back to here, and maybe participate in some collaborations or make some music.

One reason Ive been out is because I've been making some music. Originally for games in the making, these projects got pretty much abandoned as far as I can tell, so I'm putting the music on here.

Another thing I've been doing is getting all sorts of stuff going on Youtube, such as a show I call "What the Fanfic", which can be seen here.

Basic gist of reading bad fanfiction and commenting on it. I'm considering putting the audio on NG, but it probably wouldn't make enough sense.

 

All in all, I'm back on Newgrounds, and I'm lookin around to see if there's any sorts of Voice Acting or Music stuff I can do for this site. Can't wait!



Hey everyone! It's been too long! So here are some updates! First of all, I've still been hard at work on What the Fanfic: The show where I laugh at fanfiction. You can see an example below. Part 2 and 3 (JUST uploaded) are available on my channel! Hope you enjoy it and/or throw me a sub!


Now for something even cooler! WHO HERE LIVES IN ALABAMA? If any of you happen to live anywhere near Alabama or just so happen to be visiting there from February 14-16, then you should come to which is the local anime convention!

There's gonna be a ton of cool guests, such as cast from various animes like Sailor Moon and Cowboy Bebop, SEGA (showing off a new project), gaming tourneys, and a WHOLE AREA DEDICATED TO POKEMON!!!

"Chongo, why are you bringing this up?"

Well, my friends, because I'm going to be working as staff at said Pokemon area as a Gym Leader! So if you happen to be in the area, it would mean the world to me if you came to visit, said hello to me, and beat my Pokemon!

Hopefully I'll see one or two of you there! If not, then at least you all can be knowledgeable of my success!


Hope you all enjoyed the update! Until next time, stay classy, -Chongo
