midgetsausage's News

Posted by midgetsausage - 8 days ago


Before we begin this news post, I'd like to thank my sponsor Raid: Shadow Legends. They have provided me with such joy and I am so proud and honored to have them sponsor my news post. They have been very kind to me and my wife and kids, and they have also made the best mobile game in existence. Raid: Shadow Legends is an absolute banger. It features 3v3 combat, along with original gameplay mechanics and the best character designs ever seen in a mobile game. Raid: Shadow Legends is truly a masterpiece. It saved me from depression. It saved me from cancer. It saved Tom Fulp and his wife April. It saved Newgrounds, and it saved my asshole. I truly love the people who worked on it. I love Raid Shadow Legends. I wanna be sedated by Raid Shadow Legends. Raid Shadow Legends is the best mobile MOBA game in the world, and I hope you totally download it because they paid me $5,000,000 to say all that crap that i copy pasted from the script they sent me. Link in the description.


anyway, vanilla ice cream fucking sucks. that's all

Time for me to take a break like I’ve said a week ago.


I won’t be leaving, no no! I just need time to recollect, and maybe fix my personal life first. I will be back, but I don’t know what I’ll bring...

I think I ticked that fancypants "Post to Front Page" button hehe


it was fun

... at least for me. idk bout you guys. Especially what happened in December, when I got the chance to make not one, but two illustrations for @GeoKureli's Advent Calendar!

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/project/1555658


by this year, I

  • took part in my first collab!!!
  • got more than a hundred followers
  • have submitted/have appeared on at least one submission in all 4 NG Portals
  • took a piss
  • got followed by @TomFulp <3
  • got frontpaged
  • met tons and tons of wonderfully lovely people
  • got followed by said lovely people
  • etc etc


epic character development

I *actually* improved my art skills! I went from redrawing an old piece with same boring colors and messy bg

to drawing a dude rocking the contrabass on a live stage.


... nothing interesting from my music.


I'm also planning to be a game dev, though I'm not gonna make my games as serious as other games on this site. One of the games, the biggest one out of the bunch, is literally called "A Waste o' Time: A Stupid Amateuristic Platformer That Very Much Lives Up To Its Name".


... no, still nothing interesting for music.


Animation has been quite rocky, for reasons I don't wanna repeat again. I managed to squeeze out two videos, one of them voiced by @GrantTheHeirophant! (He's probably making another half-hour documentary on why Jimmy John's is pure jackshit. Love you Grant)


..... alright, fine. I kinda improved on my instrument choice and overall musical knowledge. If I had to pick, my current inspiration is Koji Kondo's works on Mario and Zelda, since I've been playing a lot of the old stuff ever since. (Don't ask how I got the games please)


a love letter to Newgrounds

before I end this newspost, I'd like to give a really big, like really really big, dinosaur-sized-times-50-times-50 big thanks to Newgrounds. I've always felt like home here, and everything I've done has always been for this site. every artwork, every animation... everything. I've done a lot of stuff in this site that I might never even be able to do on another site. I feel safe knowing what Newgrounds truly is, a site resembling the vibe of a small town just near the big cities, a metaphor for all the mainstream platforms like YouTube and Instagram.


here i've met many people, lots I would never meet hadn't it been because of this site. shoutouts to @ninjamuffin99 for making the Newgrounds server, which helped me meet most of the people I know now today. I've learned a lot from them.


thank you all, and happy new year! I want to go!

oh, and @PotatoMunch says hi.

Oh no, here we go. I have good news and bad news. Or good news and more good news if you hate me for some reason.


I'm gonna make this quick.


1 - ADVENT CALENDAR. DAY 25. GIFT. OPEN IT.


made this to thank the people in that collab. play the game here


2 - I'm taking a long break.

No, not immediately. Around January, I might.

Finally, to the important news. Where do I start?


Look, first of all, it's not because I've been working on a big important project, or that I'm occupied in something else... listen. Listen very closely. I don't feel like myself anymore.


This isn't a joke, this is serious. I no longer feel like myself. I feel like I've changed for the worse. I noticed I've turned into a toxic person, and I might have been a bad influence even. I've set aside all the important things in life... and what for?


What for, indeed.


I wasted time trying to impress this site. Yes, I wasted my time and effort into trying to be one of the best, or to be recognized as one of the best. Why? Because I'm a lonely kid. I don't have that much self-esteem, and seeing you compliment my work makes me smile. It's weird, and to some it's understandable. But I hate it.


I don't hate Newgrounds, no. I love this site. I've met many wonderful people and even made friends with some of them. But it's time for me to calm down a bit, pull the brakes, hold the horses. Listen to me. I've gained an online following before I gained proper self-awareness.


After talking to some friends of mine, I decided to take a break. I don't know for how long, but I am gonna be under a hiatus. You might find me in the BBS, or talking in the Newgrounds Discord server, and that's fine. But I'm not gonna be uploading major art pieces, or joining anything big. I need to take time to recollect.


I hope you respect my decisions. I just need to take a break, that's all.

Merry Christmas by the way, and I hope this year ends sooner.

okay let's get this started


1 - ADVENT CALENDAR BABYYYY

GUYS IT'S OUT IT'S OUT IT'S OOOUT


I spent 3 weeks making this illustration, and it was damn worth it!!!

It's the gift that appears in Day 13, which is St. Lucia's Day! My illustration is the reward you get when you collect all 99 saffrons in the minigame! (And if you collect 99 saffrons in 1 minute and 30 seconds, you can unlock the skin that resembles God.)


2 - HAPPY 100 FOLLOWERS!!!!

Since my channel got terminated before 1k, I figured I'd just put all my efforts into building my Newgrounds presence now instead of juggling betwern Newgrounds and YouTube.


Take that, YouTube!
