The time is coming

After months of production work, license acquisitions, and schedule adjustments; Newgrounds will be seeing a new cartoon series. Practice Toons served as a pilot as mentioned previously. With the loyal support of my friends and collaborators, Newgrounds is about to be rocked out loud.

Tweaked Out Episode 1 technically has been in production for almost 2 years. I know what you're thinking "that's a really long time for 1 episode to be in production." Here were the reasons why: graduation, unemployment, re-employment (HOORAY!!!), adjustment to schedule, purchasing software license, rewritting story, developing characters, normal home demands, holidays, illnesses, blah, blah, blah pfffttt

Screw it man. The internet can't wait anymore! It demands entertainment. And it wants Tweaked Out RIGHT NOW.

With the long production, I've decided to break Episode 1 into a 3-part subepisodes. This is awesome news, because now I can post the show back-to-back. Watch out Newgrounds, Tweaked Out is just around the corner >:) And to celebrate, I'm reuploading the pilot with updated sound and teaser trailer. Watch Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just call me Saikex

The name's Saikex (or Sai for short). I've been a Newgrounds viewer since 2006. I've been animating since like 4 years ago, but I've never had the opportunity to upload to Newgrounds up until now.

Reasons why: (1) lousy animation software called Anime Studio Pro and (2) I've been practicing so I could submit quality videos. Anime Studio Pro was ok at first, but then I learned I couldn't submit it to Newgrounds because it didn't support any of its video formats. Everything here is flash-flash-flash!!! So when I finally got my hands on Adobe Flash CS5.5 Professional two years ago, I had to relearn how to use the software.

Having waited so long got me upset, so finally I'm uploading stuff. I'll be posting every now and then, hopefully 3 times a month. It's time I started having fun-- no more waiting.

Currently I'm working on 3 projects:
- An original series coming soon. Practice Toons serves as the prequel.
- An action packed music video. One unlike never before seen-- one to remember for all time.
- A Kingdom Hearts test video. If successful, I may consider doing something MUCH bigger with Kingdom Hearts.

I'm proud to finally be posting in Newgrounds, wish me luck on my new adventures. :)


I give you, Saikex Promotional Test 01

The Promotional Test (Special) has been removed

Due to complications that I cannot describe, I have been forced to remove the video. Nothing serious with the law or anything, but the video had become a burden.
For those of you who even watch my videos (let alone visit my newgrounds webpage), please be patient with me. The Saikex Promotional Test 01 will be posted soon. I have another week of summer classes to worry about and will take most of my concentration. But I am working on the vid and will be posted before the end of July (hopefully).

Has anyone seen my Girlchan pic? Take a look at Jinpachirama-sama, I entered it in the contest.


My second video is now available

Go to my site on youtube, and check out my new vid. This video isn't Saikex Promotional Test 01, rather its a special tribute to an uncle of mine whose birthday was a while ago. Anyone ever heard of Juan Luis Guerra? This video would probably be easier to get if you could read spanish.

Have fun! And happy birthday to my uncle.

My second video is now available


So hey guys, the name is Saikex (sahh-ee-kex)

I'm a new guy to the whole animation gig, so I'm fresh with ideas. I have taken months of training with Anime Studio flash and have recently enrolled into a traditional animation class. I'm learning differnt ways of making cartoons come to life.

So here's how things are gonna go. The first few videos are called the Promotional Tests. They are practice videos that are meant to merely show off my current skills. I want to learn about what you guys are interested in, and I will do everything in my power to make it happen.

My videos, unfortuantely are not available in newgrounds. You guys need to go to youtube to see them. For formatting complications, I can't upload videos here (at least not yet...). Just follow the link, or look up my youtube account, Saikex.

My first video is already out. Expect more on the way.
