I took a loooooot of photos of my proboscis yeti, for my upcoming flick “SAVAGE DEATH VALLEY”
Is anyone interested in helping me with removing the backgrounds?
Cause it’s gonna be a dickload of work.
I won’t be able to give much in return, but you’ll have your name in the credits.
If you’re interested, please shoot me an e-mail at waldemarschuur@nekrotherium.com
or contact me on discord: nekrotherium#2217

This preview is clearly not high quality, but it’s a nice example of the sequences I shot.

EDIT:
All the photos are in .psd files, let me know if you prefer removing the backgrounds in photoshop or in premiere or in some other fashion

FURBABY LOVES YOU: the beginning

2017-06-02 14:26:56 by W-P-S

I have never really blogged properly. The only textwalls that are on my tumblr right now are either april fools jokes or answers to questions. I thought I'd give it a go.
I'm gonna try to occasionally write a blog entry about whatever I feel like or whatever you guys wanna read about. I'm thinking about posts about my own work, my theories on art, stuff from my life, and I guess things from history and mythology that fascinate me.
Let me know if you guys dig it.

I decided to make my first proper blog entry is going to be about a project of mine that's very close to my heart
FURBABY LOVES YOU

1562541_149642781862_meditatjpg.jpg

In case ya haven't seen it,
here's part A http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/554386
and here's part B http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/554389

I guess I'll start about how I came up with the idea of the format for Furbaby Loves You.
Just like the war in Bosnia, it started somewhere in the 90s.
I was the first kid with internet in my school, so I still experienced the magic of the world wide wild west.
One of the things I really digged on that old school internet was the early flash and shockwave toons and games! As a kid I always wanted to make cartoons, and seeing these crude and vulgar cartoons made by people in their own bedroom really fascinated me. I knew back then it would make my dream of becoming an animator far more accessible.

1562541_149642784362_Marshall_Applewhite.jpg
Only true 90s kids remember Marshall Herff Applewhite

One popular thing on the old net was the “click-to-torture” type game. I don't know the official name for these types of games, but they were everywhere.
Joe Cartoon with things like “Gerbil in a Microwave” and “Frog in a Blender”, Tom Fulp's “Assassin” series. Basically, you click on something and you hurt something (usually a cartoon animal or a celebrity)
There was one specific type of click-to-torture game that formed the main inspiration for “Furbaby Loves You”.
You see, back when the Pokémon hype all started kids were spending their allowance like crazy on those damn cards. However, over time, some kids began to realize what a waste of money all of that was. They didn't blame their own stupid asses though No, they blamed Pokémon.
As such, they made websites and forums dedicated to hating the little pocket mongrels.
They made shitty ms-paint edits of Pokémon pictures in which they give them bloody gunshot wounds and what not.
I was one of those kids, absolutely pissed off that I wasted my allowance on those fucking cards.
While browsing anti-pokémon websites I found a .exe game someone made which was a Pikachu tamagotchi, but instead of taking care of Pikachu, you ended up kicking his ass.
Food would be poison, if you played with him you just kicked him around, things like that. I don't remember the details it was quite a while.
So the idea of doing a click-to-torture type game disguised as a virtual pet came from there.

1562541_149642787953_doom2.gif
The 90s were dangerous times

I wanted to make my own click-to-torture game ever since I first played em.
However, I kept animating cartoon shorts, and over time I became better and better at animation.
For some reason, making a simple click to torture simply didn't seem challenging anymore.
I wanted to make a click-to-torture game that went over the fucking limit! A giant within its genre!
I wanted to make one in which every choice you make is a short cartoon.
So that's what I did!

1562541_149642797783_SLEEPTITELILFAGGIT.png

The reason I chose the idea of a creature half furby, half human baby, was because I liked the idea of crossing two things that were cute and making it into a horrid hybrid.
Also, me and my friend would joke about furbies a lot, and make silly drawings about em.

Some early sketches of Furbaby:

1562541_149642794661_FURBABBYSKETCH2.png

So that's where the roots of “Furbaby Loves You” lie.
I might go in depth on the actual cartoon itself, the scenes, artistic choices, inspirations, in another blog entry, but for now this textwall is big enough for me.
I can animate a lot better now than I could in 2010, and if I would've made it today I probably would've done things differently here and there. Despite that, I think the end result is a little gem, and of all the finished flash projects it's probably my favorite.

Lemme know if you like blog entries like this, then I'll write more in the future.

Golfinho steals my shit

2017-04-18 07:44:58 by W-P-S

Hey everyone. I didn’t really want to make this post, I don’t like calling people out on things, but I think you guys oughta know Golfinho has been ripping off me and some other artists (Ansel, Aztraz and Catoblepas)

My good friend Zekey already talked about how Ansel got ripped off by Golfinho here:
http://zekeyspaceylizard.tumblr.com/post/151911544805/so-this-cartoon-while-lovely-and-cute-and

Here are some of the things he copied from me, lo and behold:

1562541_149251589292_tumblr_inline_ook3tzruam1qh48hm_500.png

another thing he drew based on the same scene:

1562541_149251589182_tumblr_inline_ook3uvjCt81qh48hm_500.png

He has been doing this for quite some time, and I already contacted Golfinho before. I asked him to stop this shit, and he hasn’t. It’s a shame because he’s not a bad animator himself and should not have to rely on copying other people’s work.

Thank you for your time, and that would be all.

CHANGE OF CAREER

2017-04-01 08:12:48 by W-P-S

Ladies and gentlemen, we live in politically turbulent times and parties left and right are abusing this chaotic situation to slowly take away our freedoms.
What is a man to do in this whirlwind of conflicting ideologies?
I no longer wish to be “above” it all, sneering at everyone like a cowardly fence-sitter. The time to take action is now! And one can only take action by adhering to an existing political body, now is not the time nor the place for individualism.

Hence I have decided to defend my beliefs as a LIBERTINE from the jaws of the establishment. And how shall I do this, you’re probably wondering?
Simple, I hereby abandon my career as an animator and devote myself to the most noble and divine of professions, I shall become a political cartoonist.

This will become quite a task for me, however, because being a political cartoonist is probably the most challenging task within the creative industry. You must brilliantly analyze the current zeitgeist and political flow, and contextualize it with brilliant visual gags to make your truth bombs stick in the minds of the hoi poloi.
Imagine if there were no people on this globe sitting comfortably on their buttocks, telling other people what to think, through cartoons, blogs and youtube videos. Without these noble warriors society would surely collapse!

And to quote John Wilmot; “I have to speak my mind. Because what is in my mind is always more interesting than what is happening in the world outside my mind.”

So here is my first political cartoon of many:

1562541_149104876511_libertinecartoon.png


By Bacchus and Eros, I feel like I’m born anew. I know the intellectual brilliant and magnificent deconstruction of the contemporary zeitgeist and the authoritarian rule of displaced moralism pictured above may be a tough pill to swallow for those who have not yet been enlightened by the ecole de libertinage, but it MUST BE DONE.

TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE!
EXCELSIOR
