Good morning everybody, and Happy Piconjo Day! :D

I hope you're all doing well! To start off this newpost, I just want to apologize for not posting on here much ;-; other than checking my notifications and doing icon mod stuff, I haven't really been active on here much and that kind of blows. I've been trying to wait until I got done with my animation series to post on here, but I've been making good progress and I made something recently so I think now is as good of a time as any to be active again!

Speaking of doing something recently.... HAPPY PICONJO DAY!!

I hope you're all having a great day celebrating not just @Piconjo's work, but the work of all Piconjers that made Piconjo even more special. I made the gif above and the "wall of legendary Piconjers" below for my animation, you can look up some of these people if you'd like :P


Please go ahead and check out the Piconjo Day Jam that @ProsciuttoMan set up, as well as my animation which is currently under judgement!

Next on my list, I want to say thank you for both 100 fans AND User of the Day!


I can't express how thankful I am to have people support me when I haven't even made anything good yet :P and I don't mean that in a self-doubting way, I just mean that I think I can do way better then what I've put out and there's no place to go but up! I've been working very hard on my animation series, and I'm so excited to show you guys what I have in store soon.

Also, thank you for User of the Day! I got it back in April and it was really cool to see ^_^ I especially want to thank @Luis, @kruno5gaming and @supfool for letting me know that I got it when I woke up!

Ok, the last thing I want to do is to let you guys know what you should expect to see soon!

  • Promo art for my show! And the show itself at some point, but one step at a time...
  • Newgrounds merch posts! If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know I collect a bunch of Newgrounds merch and that I love showing it off ;) I have a few framed posters that I need to get hung up and then after that, my Newgrounds room is all set up!
  • Forum posts! Well, probably. I just love Photoshop threads ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Would you guys be interested in me sharing photos of events that I go to (concerts, conventions, etc) and blogging about them here? Let me know!

That's it for now! Although real quick, I just want to say that I'm so glad that I got to know so many wonderful and talented people recently and whether you follow me on here or on Twitter or wherever else, I want you to know that I 100% appreciate you <3

(Also, I'm so sorry if I worded any of this weirdly. I'm very tired rn!)

Happy New Years, everybody!! :D

I'm gonna talk a little bit about some of my favorite notable things to happen this year on here, although you should definitely check out @TomFulp's 2020 retrospective here because I'm kinda just going over my thoughts on what he's already talked about :P (And like usual, I'm making this post when I'm super tired, so sorry if everything I say here doesn't make any sense LOL)

First of all, I know the year has been crappy in general, but I'd reckon 2020 has been a pretty great year for Newgrounds! Friday Night Funkin' has become wildly successful and has brought in a ton of new members to Newgrounds, and I know @ninjamuffin99 has been doing his best to make sure that people who come here for Friday Night Funkin' know what a wonderful community Newgrounds is.

The TANKMas Adventure was such a fun experience (especially with @Snackers' Duncan & Jones 3 Premiere!), Dead Estate was one of the coolest games I played on Newgrounds in a while, and @Xinxinix's Secret Santa was such a wonderfully happy occasion.

I think the @TheNewgroundsPodcast Block Party is probably not only my favorite thing to happen on Newgrounds this year, but my favorite thing that happened in general this year. I had such a blast and it helped me forget about some of the events I was supposed to go to this year that got cancelled.

Also, this wasn't mentioned in the "official" 2020 retrospective but I want to give a little shout-out to @Little-Rena's BBS Awards 2020. Although I sadly don't post nearly as much in the BBS anymore, it's still a very nice community and I'm happy that the tradition of the BBS Awards has been able to continue with this much love and care put into it!

Now time for the fun part! What are my plans for 2021?

Well, I'm glad you asked! First of all, I really hope to get done with my animation! I've been working very hard on trying to make it the best it can be, with constant revisions and different versions of flash to try and make it the best first episode that it can be. I know it's probably a bit silly to spend this much time animating on the first episode instead of just getting it done and making the next episodes better, but I really want to have an end product that I can be happy with as my starting point!

Here's a comparison between one of the first versions of one of my characters, versus one of my latest:


The one on the right actually isn't very accurate to how the end product will be, I've decided against shading it so I can do frame-by-frame easier. I found out the hard way that tweening just isn't really my thing ;-; But hopefully this helps represent how much I've been working on it!

My other plans include going to more events (mostly concerts and festivals, but I might also be going to conventions like TooManyGames!) and getting caught up with schoolwork.

To end off this post, I thought it'd be fun to shout out some of my friends!

I'm gonna be specifically shouting out friends who I've known for a long time outside of Newgrounds, so that people in the Newgrounds community can check them out. Most of these people have more followers then me so I guess it's kinda pointless for me to do this, but I still thought it'd be fun :P

@KOLSAN - Kenny is legitimately one of my best friends, I've known him for such a long time and he's always been such a cool person and a great bro to call with. He's an amazing artist and he recently got his art frontpaged on here and I could not be prouder! It's been such a wonderful experience seeing your art grow. Hopefully I'll be able to call with you and the rest of the gang again real soon!

@WooDeeWoo - David is not only the most multi-talented person that I know, he's honestly one of the kindest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He's also one of my best friends, he does absolutely amazing art and I even commissioned him to make a piano piece for my animation!

@FlorenRED - Floren is a very great friend of mine and he's also one of the kindest people I know! He's also a very talented artist who mainly draws video game and anime related pieces. And he also draws a lot of butts, if you're into that kind of thing. Go check him out!

@distemgla - Ivan is, again, a very great friend of mine! He's also one of the more "experimental" artists on this list, seeing as how he always changes his style and tries new things. He has a ton of potential, and I'm glad to see him grow as an artist. Go check him out, and let him know what you think works and what doesn't!

And that should be it for now! Thank you for reading all of this, and I hope you all have a great new years!!

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a good day! This'll probably be a pretty short post, I just wanted to say....

Merry late Christmas!! :D

Here's photos most of the stuff I got, the Ms. Pac-Man arcade machine was actually my present to my mom but it was too cool not to include!




OH YEAH, it's also worth mentioning that I recently made a tweet about my appreciation for Newgrounds!! You can check it out here, I also have it pinned to my Twitter profile so if you follow me on there you've probably seen it already ;P


Last but not least, I want to give a HUGE shout out to @gatekid3 for making my current avatar! He finished it literally the day I paid him, and I couldn't be happier with the result. If any of you need an avatar, I highly recommend commissioning him!


That should be it for now, thank you for reading! I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful New Years ^_^



Posted by CarterSterling - December 20th, 2020

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a good Sunday ^_^

First of all, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to @ReNaeNae for gifting me these Calendars and the extra goodies!! :D


I honestly appreciate this so much, I've always wanted Newgrounds merch like this and I'm so proud to be a part of this community.

And speaking of community, the Duncan & Jones 3 Premiere in the Christmas TANKMas Adventure game was so much fun!


And I'm pretty sure I was the only guy with a Salad Fingers skin during the event, so that was pretty cool! Anyways, great job to @Snackers for making such a cool animation and great job to @BrandyBuizel for coming up with this event idea! I hope there'll be more cool events like this one and the Newgrounds Podcast Block Party in the future :D

That should be it for now, Christmas is in 5 DAYS so I hope you all are in the Holiday spirit!!



Posted by CarterSterling - December 17th, 2020


Pretty cool, right? ;D

I'm mostly working on updating the thumbnails of older flashes, recreating them as close to the original thumbnail as possible so that they're the best quality they can be. I'll also be making thumbnails for submissions that don't have one.

If you want to help us out, you can head over to this thread!



Posted by CarterSterling - December 15th, 2020

Hello everyone! First of all, I want to say good morning and that I hope you all have a good day!

Second of all....



This is absolutely crazy to me and I'm honestly so happy right now, I never imagined this would happen in a million years! Thank you so much @TomFulp, and also thank you @ninjamuffin99 for making such a cool game! :D This will always be my favorite site.

Secondly, since my account is getting some traction and I'm getting some new followers/fans, I thought I'd let you all know about the animation I'm working on!

I'm currently making the first episode for a series I'm calling Red Kitty, featuring a character of the same name I made when I was 8 years old (and back then he was called The Loose, but I changed the name because I don't want it to be confused with the great series Loose Ends by @JacobLenstar :P). It'll have voice acting by me and @oblivi8e and music by @WooDeeWoo!

I'm hoping it'll get done by the end of next month, but since I'm doing it frame-by-frame I honestly have no idea if it'll get done sooner or later. It all depends on my laziness *shrug*

Don't expect anything great, it IS gonna be my first animation (unless you want to count my crappy Clock Crew spam), I just wanted to let you guys updating on what I'm planning :D

That should be it for now, thank you for reading! I hope you all have a great holiday season!



Posted by CarterSterling - November 19th, 2020

Hello everyone! This isn't really any big news or anything, but I just wanted to show some things off.

First off, I just started a little corner in my room where I showcase my Newgrounds merch! :D


I bought more Newgrounds-related pins too, but they haven't arrived yet. If any of you still have any merch let me know! I'd love to buy from you, and even if you're not selling I'd still love to look at them cause I think they're cool ^_^

Secondly, I got an SNES and a Nintendo 64! :D



Both were pretty good deals, the SNES came with the 8 games shown and the N64 was custom painted to look like a famicom! I basically have all the consoles I'd want now, and now I'm just looking around the marketplace for a GBA so I can play some Gameboy games...

That should be it for now! I'm still working on my animation but honestly I'm being a bit lazy with it LOL. I'm not gonna rush it though, it's my first animation so I should take my time with it and get used to the program a bit I think. I hope you have a good day!



Posted by CarterSterling - November 7th, 2020

Hello everybody! Sorry for not updating anything on here in a while, I know not a lot of people actually look at these but I still like blogging on here :D

First things first, I hope that during all this political talk you guys are remembering to enjoy yourselves!

It's alright to be passionate about politics, but remember not to get too annoyed with people.

Second off, I went out of town recently! First photo is of me and my mom at the park, the second photo is all the games I got while I was out of town.



Oh and speaking of games, I started up my game collection! This doesn't include all of my games, I have a bunch of loose disc PS1, PS2, and Wii U games that I need to get replacement cases for but I think it looks pretty alright so far.


Here's a few more things!

  1. I slightly changed my username on here! It used to be "ECarterSterling" and now it's just CarterSterling. What a huge difference!
  2. I have my social media linked to my account on here! If you want to be even more in contact with me, you can check me out there. I wouldn't normalize advertise this, but 2 of the people who followed me on here deleted their Newgrounds accounts. :/
  3. I had a pretty good Halloween! I had planned to dress up as a Slipknot member but my mask didn't come on time (now I know not to buy masks on Etsy!), so I just put on some eyeshadow and looked spooky that way.
  4. I'm working on an animation! Well... sorta. I made all the voice clips and everything, and now I just need to remember how to use Flash! It's been so long since I even opened Flash, not to mention I'm a bit lazy, but hopefully I'll be able to get it done soon enough.

And that's it for now, I hope you all have a great day!
