HowardWimshurst's News

Hey guys, I've got some awesome news. I just joined Patreon!

If you have benefited from my videos over the last few years, Patreon is a simple way for you to contribute funding to my videos every two weeks, and get super cool exclusive rewards in return! It helps to keep the videos going and to improve the channel and the website

I also made a short animation for the opening of the Patreon page. I think you might like it:

Even a small pledge makes a big difference. Take a look at all of the cool things I have planned on the page and all of the cool rewards I give out.

Thank you for considering, I hope you are doing well,


Hello - just though I would make a quick update that we are now 1 week away from the Patreon page launch!

I also brought out a new animation walkthrough where I reveal some of my hot tips:


Hey yall, I am slowly creating a new video series called Sakuga Studies - this is where I deconstruct master Sakuga Animators, the techniques they use and the characteristics of their animations. Hopefully you and I learn something from the whole process!

Unfortunately I cannot bring these videos out very regularly. On average I am aiming for at least one every two months until it is over. I am only picking animators and artists who I feel stand out amongst the other animators around them.

So I suggest that you Subscribe to my channel if you want to stay updated and you will be able to find all of the sakuga studies videos in this Playlist so you can save that playlist and visit it any time.


Sorry that I can't update my newgrounds more often. It takes too long to make these posts for each individual video.

Here are some other links i mentioned in the video

  And in case you didn't catch it, i made a cool knife throw animation and the source files are now available for download here

I would upload these kind of videos to newgrounds, but they just don't seem like the kind of content that newgrounds likes, so they are just going to be on YouTube for now.

hey guys, i have kept a fairly consistent upload schedule over these past few months, creating tutorials for my YouTube channel. I would be posting them here on newgrounds but i don't know if the content it suitable for the flash portal. What do you think?

Here's my most recent two.


Hey guys,

Once again I'm going to promote my YouTube Channel where I make animation tutorials. This week I made a tutorial on my aproach to motion blurs.

Are you a Flash animator looking for freelance work? I'm expanding my freelance animation business.

Lately, I have been receiving too many freelance offers for me to undertake by myself. Instead of turning away these offers, I have decided to put together a contact list of animators and artists to outsource this extra work to. Think of it as a studio, but with flexible working hours and based completely online. Your skill, reliability and availability will determine how many offers come your way and also how much you are paid per second of animation.

If you're interested, check out the link below. There is more info explaining this concept in detail. Fill in the form and I will get back to you if and when I match you up with a project.
