Shock-Dingo's News


This week, (specifically yesterday) marks the 10th year since I first picked up a mic and started to seriously pursue voice acting.

It started back when Rina-Chan had the first and original Voice Acting Club thread on the Newgrounds forum. I was in highschool on break and after I tried applying for a failed voice acting project on another forum weeks earlier, I did a google search which lead me back to Newgrounds (I had been away for a few years) and I signed up that afternoon.

From then on, I got a chance to meet and collaborate with a variety of authors and other voice actors from Newgrounds and eventually other places online. I've been happy, been blessed, and hope to keep going forward and learning! Here's to the future!



Hey guys, I'm not sure if you're all familiar with Hyper Dragonball Z made by Team Z2, but check out the latest progress video featuring Freeza (voiced by me) fighting Majin Vegeta (voiced by RicePirate). You'll be glad you did.

Watch this space for more!

 


Huzzza! New Releases!

2015-02-14 15:25:19 by Shock-Dingo

Hey everyone! February's got several new offerings!

First up is the newest entry in HadoukenDude's 4 Swords Misadventure series! Stop by, collect some medals and hear me as the cranky and the impossible-to-understand Oshus!

Need a pickme up after that adventure full of questing? Grab a glass, pour some Tequila and bash in some Zombie skulls in IriySoft's Tequila Zombies 3! I'm Jeff, the charming President of Los Lobos MC!

Waking up after a bender from blazing brutal Zombie Bashing? Well matey, you may need to slowly build yourself up and build up your knowledge with FlashChaz and Danish Goel's latest game, Age of Wonder: The Lost Scrolls!

Have fun folks!



Hey everyone, how's the new year been treating you all?

2014 had some ups and downs and several fun projects, but I'm hoping that 2015 will be a very productive year. I want to work on more projects, release more things and really plug in with the community. I also think I'll point to updates on Newgrounds and off of it, just to let you guys know I'm still doing stuff.

If you want to see more of what I'm about, check out my main Youtube Page, or my Blogger home page.

Until next time everyone!


New Release: Bobby Da Arrow!

2014-11-22 12:41:46 by Shock-Dingo

Greetings once again Newgrounds! I've got a newly released project to announce. If you haven't already checked it out, Bobby Da Arrow is up in the Games Portal.  I teamed up with the talanted and friendly duo of Danish Goel and FlashChaz once again (seriously love these guys) to bring you all a voiced final product. I'm really proud of this!

Check it out and let us know what you think!



Heya folks,

How's it going? Still alive, just haven't been active on Newgrounds as of late. I've been keeping busy and having adventures in voice acting across the net (and even on some iOS devices).

I recently updated my website, which should cover all the main goings and comings and activities inside and outside of newgrounds. You can find the link here:

http://electricvoicebox.blogspot.ca/

I also recently reteamed with SkyGoblin games  to work on chapter 2 of The Journey Down. It's available now on Steam and various devices!

I'll catch you all later! Enjoy the October festivities!



Hey guys, I've started a bit of a reflection series on my Tumblr page. I call it Electrifying Entries (zounds... I cannot stay away from Electricity themes can I?)

Since Once Upon a Life just came out, I started my first entry with a reflection on the game.

I don't have a set schedule on when I'll be updating these, but they'll be rather frequent and give some more insight on why I made the acting choices I did.  If that type of thing interests you, head on over! :)

Until next time!



Hey everyone, how's it going?

It's only a few days into February, but I've got a bit of news to share.

FlashChaz has released a new game: Once Upon a Life. A fun journey inwhich you accompany an old fellow who's on one last adventure in the twlight of his years. Take Harry and his Rocket Powered Walker and blast through the craziness to reclaim something dear to his heart. You can hear me as all the voices in the game, I hope you all enjoy!


Up next, I just recently released my 2014 Character Voice demo. I have to give a ton of thanks to D-Mac and Antfish for their guidance on the assembly and production of this. I think it paid off don't you think? I feel this particular demo better showcases my range and is better organized in comparison to my past efforts.

 

Take care everyone and see you later!  



Hey guys!

I recently worked with Danish Goel and provided vocie work on a Spartan themed physics game called Spanthera! It just got released. You'll join Leonidas as he tries to quell the invading forces of Slithrix by wielding your holy spear Vibrissa! Save your people, bring down the invaders!  It's fully voiced, has a stirring soundtrack, challenging puzzles and great cutscenes! Take up your spear and check it out now!


New year, new possibilities, new plans!

Hey everyone,

I hope you all had great holidays and are doing well. Man, I'm always caught off guard by how fast the year moves, but 2013 was more than a bit crazy.

End of the year releases:

Up first is the latest episode of HadoukenDude's 4 Sword Misadventures. Currently it's on youtube and the NG release with bonus content will be along at a later time.

Four Sword Misadventures ep 9:  The Hyrule Fantasty II

 

Next is a send up of a meme I'm sure you all are familiar with. This is my first time working with Aviticus Dragon, and I had a blast. It's pretty short, so give it a looksee if you'd like.

Over 9,000 (A Skyrim short)

 

The last release was my main release for 2013 on my youtube page. I was really proud of it. First, a bit of a background on it. Growing up, I really loved the title cards and commercial bumpers that were part of 80's and early 90s cartoons. I felt they gave a certain aesthetic quality to the whole thing. With Marvel now expanding its properties, I frequently wondered what a Marvel-only channel would be like, and thus I married the two ideas to make a reel of commercial bumpers for fake Marvel shows like  X-men Legends, The Amazing Spider-man, The Hulk and The Avengers. I released it back in October, but figured I'd spread the news once again. It's a bit long at 6 minutes, but that's mostly due to some bonus content at the end of the video that I hope you'll all enjoy!

Reflection on 2013

Overall, 2013 was a mixed bag for me. On the plus side, I made contact with some great new pals and had the pleasure of working on some amazing projects (some have been released and the others will be out soon), but on the negative side, I did not meet many goals I set, stalled out on my personal projects and my personal life kind of crapped out.

Plans for 2014

I'm not going to let my setbacks get me down, I'm going to get back on the horse and try to do more this year. I'm hoping to:

- Release more videos- Not sure if you're aware, but I have two youtube channels (a primary one for big releases and a secondary one for tests and hopefully original content) I've had several videos planned and in production, but I got sidelined and only released one major project.

-Reconnect with Newgrounds- I used to be a lot more active on here in years past- working with different flash creators and writing up reviews for games and flash toons. I'd like to do more here than just be a voice actor.

-Get out there and better my skills- I'm very happy for my peers and have seen them blossom beautifully throughout the years. I feel that I have hit a slump in terms of my own growth, I'd like to challenge myself more, take on meatier roles and get out there! I sometimes only land a gig once every couple of months and I know I really need to step it up. I'm usually happy with my performances, but at times in reviewing them I feel that I could have been a bit more authentic or hit harder with emotional depth.

-Create more art- I'm a so-so artist, but I love to dabble. I've been learning Adobe Illustrator for a bit and am feeling a lot more adventurous. I've only ever posted three pieces on my page and those were for the old Girlchan contest by Egoraptor in yearspast and a reference to my old entry for a NG VA contest. I'd like to put up my doodles and such up here, get some feedback, and maybe grow as an artist? I dunno, I open to the idea! :)

 

Well, this is getting a bit long. I don't think I've ever blogged this much on NG, but I think I may do it more in the future and talk about more than just releases.

Thanks for reading everyone, take care and all the best!
