Greetings people of Newgrounds.
Just an update on what I'm working on. If you didn't know already I'm now working full time as a Web Designer, and I also make music. I combined the two to make a website for my music. And so without further ado I present... *drum roll please*
Please check it out and listen to the EP teaser! The EP will be released on 19th Feb to iTunes, Spotify and a load of other stuff, as well as on physical release, of course! Enjoy.
If you're wondering where Gravity's Just A Theory 3 is, keep wondering. I have a full time job now doing web design which is great, although it doesn't leave me a great deal of time to work on other projects.
One thing I have been working on though is music. Hurrah! I've uploaded the odd track to the Audio Portal but most of my recent music is going on my music website: maffiss.com
I'm working on a 6 track EP and it's going quite well so far. I just finished a new song called 'Wings Like Eagles', it's an instrumental track based on Isaiah 40. You can hear that with your ear boxes here!
You can keep up to date with all my music stuff on my bloggage, here.
Shameless plug complete.
GJAT3 is coming along nicely. I've got 22 seconds done for a 2 and half minute long song. So there's still quite a way to go. The song I'm using is 'Rapid Eye Movement' by Jimmy Wahlsteen. You can find it on the internets if you want to give it an ear listen.
Here's a still image that I made in Illustrator as an idea of what the finished scene might look like (this one isn't animated yet, but I've started). So far the hills, mountains, skyscrapers, sky and windmill have all been animated and brought in nicely. The rest is still to be done but I have a feeling it's not going to fill the whole song so I'll need to add some more stuff.
Hello again, Flash. Long time no see!
p.s. if you have bionic eyes you may have noticed the file name is GJAT3.
I haven't done much flash animation of late and I think it's time I did. I feel my imagination tingling and my flash senses... sensing. So I'm giving you lovely people the chance to have your say on what you think I should do. I want to make something in the style of Gravity's Just A Theory or Colours (ie. something that makes people feel happy, without words). I can do a sequel to Gravity's Just A Theory or Colours, I think my animation and art style has improved a lot since those and I could probably do a better job of them now. Or I could do something completely new.
Let me know what you think in that comments section thingy below.
Lo. So if you've been following my music under the name 'Ogvidius' (probably not, as not many people do) then you may want to know that I'm making music under a new name now, which is 'Maffiss'.
I have a Remixes EP out which is available for free download, and I'm working on the second, as well a debut album type thing. These will both probably be released for free too, when they're done. For now, you can hear and download free tracks from all over the place!
Prepare for the link bombardment!

Well, I know that's a lot of links to face all at once, I do hope you can contain your excitement. Please let me know what you think in that comments section thingy below. Or by participating in one of the many various ways on one of the above links.
Here's some album art:
Sup. I mentioned Connected a couple of days ago, well it's out there now so go take a look! Also, I do a bit of music stuff as you may have known from the audio portal and I've recently done a remixes EP which is available for free download. Woop!
For more info on the remixes see this website: http://ogvidiusmusic.tumblr.com/
and here be your download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?cx00zi2jk3o
Enjoy! And let me know what you thought of connected, thanks!
Ok, just to keep you all updated:
I'm working on a flash animation called 'Connected' (pictured below) which was originally meant for the Animation10 competition, but as I missed the deadline that won't be happening, but it's nearly finished and it seems a shame to let it go to waste so I'll finish it off and post it here on Newgrounds as well as on my website. Which brings me to my next point....
I have a new website which is very minimal and simple and Mmmmm-shacka-tasty! It's got stuff on it so go and have a look and let me know what you think! http://www.ogvidius.com
I'm in a collab that will be coming up soon, not sure if I'm allowed to mention what it is because it's a bit of a private thing but it should have some really interesting results, so I'm looking forward to working on that.
You may or may not know that as well as doing flash, I do a lot of design and film work. Well, I launched a new blog this January called '365 Designs' in which I'll be designing something every day for a year, which is really tiring! I've made it to over 100 so far so you can follow that on Tumblr at 365designs.tumblr.com
Yes, I have this Twitter thing too so you can follow me at twitter.com/ogvidius
Ok. Quick update. I finished redesigning my website, so go check it out!
Let me know what you think and if there are any problems! Thanks
I mentioned in my last post that I was working on Gravity's Just A Theory 3, and another animation, well, the two have merged and become 'Happy Up Here'. A new animation that is in a similar style to the Gravity's Just A Theory toons, but with the song 'Happy Up Here' by Royksopp, which is more electronic, upbeat, fast and, well, happy! It clocks in at just under 3 minutes, and so far I've done around 15 seconds, so it could be a while yet!
So that's it. Have a great Christmas everyone!
So I'm going to be working on GJAT3 fairly soon, or at least something very similar, it may become something that isn't part of the GJAT series. So what would you guys like to see in the next installment, or what would you not like to see? Any suggestions on content, music or anything else, let me know!
In other news, I'll be doing a short animation for a competition which should be done fairly soon. I'm also working on redesign of my website (again!), and working on some new musics.
