Hey guys, it's been a really long time since I've been involved with some Newgrounds projects! Some of y'all recognize my name and some of you might be newer to Newgrounds, but my name is Ethan Gallardo and I'm a professional actor/voice actor. I haven't had a lot of free time to help out with projects lately since I've been spending my recording time at Funimation lately, but since we're just now starting to dub a new season of anime I have a fistful of free-time until things might pick up again.
You can check out my demo reel here.
You can see what past projects I've worked for Newgrounds here.
You can also check out a few credits (this hasn't been updated in quite some time) here, in case you're just curious.
I just have a few rules before taking requests.
1. Have something to show regarding your work/project.
This is big. I will NOT do project that have no WIP (work in progress) status. If it's just an idea in your head with nothing to show, please ask someone else.
2. I might say "No".
As an actor I have every right to turn down a project that I don't feel is right of me. With that being said, it's unlikely I'll be voicing projects with excessive heavy language or pornographic content. It's just not my thing.
3. Send me a message here on Newgrounds.
I usually work for money, but I wanna work on some other things right now. With that being said I WON'T always be working for free and I can't guarantee that I still will be by the time you see this. This is first come, first serve.
Or we can just become best friends...you know, whatever.
I'm actually going to start with Pico Day. I have tons of pictures to upload, so I'll probably update this post with an album when I finally get around to it. Either way, Pico Day was by far one of the most magical experiences I have ever been a part of. The amount of talent, individuality, and passion that was crammed into that single office space was overwhelming at times, both emotionally and conceptually. There were some Newgrounders there who traveled from half way across the world just to share in that moment with a community that becomes seemingly stronger (to me at least) as time goes on. If that doesn't drive home what kind of an impact a place like Newgrounds has made on someone's life, I don't know what does. I got to hang out with long time friends and first time faces, and felt completely welcomed at all times. When I first joined Newgrounds in 2012, some of the first people I ever became acquainted with were @tyler and @redminus, and here I was, in 2015, standing face to face, without introduction, chatting with them as if hanging out over the weekend was a regular thing. It was no different for those who I met for the first time that weekend either. I unintentionally bumped into @Ukinojoe and @Stamper (not at the same time) and was instantly greeted with hugs and conversation. @jaxxy & @TomaMoto you guys were amazing! I really hope we get to hang out again in the near future! @Sabtastic you're an absolute sweetheart, it was so lovely getting to meet you finally! @TomFulp is one of the most kind hearted and hospitable man I have ever met, and I can't possibly thank you enough for not only allowing us to spend the weekend with you, but for making all of this possible in the first place. There are so many people I met, and I can't even begin to describe how much of a pleasure it was to shake your hands, hug your bods, and touch your butts. If you're one of those people, know you'll always be an inspiration in my eyes. I can't wait to see you all again next year~ <3
On another note, the week I got back from PicoDay I was informed some projects have been placed on hold, so the company I work for will be experiencing a reduction in force. In turn, I received a 2 weeks notice and this Wednesday is my last. I'm a little anxious about where I'll end up after this, but I can sustain myself for maybe another 2 months before I'm going to find myself in a pretty tough situation. I moved to Dallas at the start of the year and that's about 10 hours away from any immediate family. While I search for a new job, I really want to re-evaluate where I want to go in my career. My previous position was as a Junior QA analyst, and I'm really glad I learned a new skill and can apply that to an ever growing industry, but I would really like to find myself in a more creative position. I'd like to be searching for entry level positions for animation/ production, even though I realize that entry level positions are a dime a dozen in this industry. If I could find consistent (paying) voice work, I'd be dedicating all my time to that in a heartbeat. I really hope I can come up with something soon and I'm even looking into offsite positions since I'm signed to a year lease at my place here in Dallas. I'd really appreciate your best wishes, prayers, and positive thoughts while I try to get through this unfortunate event.
Thank you Newgrounds!!! I love you all! <3
The time has finally come! I'm flying out to Phill tomorrow for PicoDay, which is on the 25th!
I really hope I get to see so many of your wonderful faces there and I really look forward to meeting all who are attending! If anyone recognizes me come say "Hi!", It would be my pleasure to shake your hand, hug your bod, or squeeze your buns! If you're not attending, and might not have access to the stream, or want a closer look at what's going on throughout the day, follow me on Snapchat at "ontheedg3" to recieve some behind the scenes of what's going down! I'll try to be posing regularly!
I ALSO MADE THIS ARTWORK FOR PICODAY #picoday2015
I hope you enjoy it!
Also, follow me on Twitter for updates!
HERE HAVE A PICTURE OF MY DUMB FACE SO YOU CAN FIND ME ON SATURDAY
Hey guys! I just wanted to drop by to say "hey" and lay down a tiny update!
I just moved to Dallas about a month ago and am working at an app development company called Bottle Rocket. It's been a total blast so far and I look forward to these next few months to see where my career goes!
If you didn't see, there was a recent upload entitled, "Pokemon Superfans" where I voice the skinny guy with the spiked hair and the Pokemon announcer. It's been so long since I first recorded those lines and it blows my mind to see where I was back then and where I am now with voice acting. I just want to thank ArtistGamerGal for giving me the opportunity and for believing in my ability to aid her wonderful animations. Check it out here!
Lastly, I just wanted to share that I'm in a movie coming out next year called "Ingress"! I play a character named Adam in a post apocalyptic environment that deals with time travel. It would be awesome if y'all could check out the new trailer some time and show some love! CHECK IT OUT HERE!
Also, I will be attending PicoDay this year! I hope to see some of your beautiful faces there! I would love to meet each and every one of you! HAVE MY FACE!
I had mentioned in an earlier post that I was hoping to have a Google Hangouts session with whoever wanted to join.
I'm thinkin this would be a fun way to meet and collaborate with Newgrounds users!
This post is just to get an rough headcount for those who are interested, and I'm thinking Friday around 7 pm central time would be a good day to do this! Hope to hear from you soon!
Just a plus, I drew a little portrait picture today trying to learn Paint Tool Sai until I can get photoshop reinstalled on my computer. Even though it's just a doodle, feedback would be appreciated! You can check that out here or on my page under the art tab!
Oh, my beautiful, BEAUTIFUL newground-(ers?) How I've missed your bright and shining faces!
Here's a quick update! First off, I GRADUATED!!! The single most happiest day of my life thus far was finally being able to say, "I never have to go back to school." Gosh, what a load off of this ol' soul's chest! So now that I have a degree in visualization with a specialization in game design all I have to do is find a job, but I'll save that frustrating process for a later post maybe.
Right now I'm spending a few days in Colorado for a spontaneous road trip that me and some dudes decided to take. Driving from Texas to Colorado wasn't that bad either and it really does feel amazing to get out and enjoy the change in scenery. Tomorrow we'll be heading up to Pikes Peak to enjoy the sick view I'm sure were bound to see, and then maybe be descending back to Texas later that evening or on Sunday afternoon.
I was thinking that once I get back it would be cool to host a Google Hangout for who ever would like to join and get to know some new people (or old friends) from the NG community!!! Let me know if its something you'd be interested in, and I'd love to meet you all!
ALSO! If you're reading this and I owe you voice overs, do not fret! Now you know that I've been on a little vacation and I intend to have those lines to you ASAP!!! <3 In the meanwhile check out this picture of my sexy self trying to be Giovanni from Pokemon. I LOVE YOU ALL!
Thanks yo! Super stoked to rock this tee everywhere I go and grace public places with these rad stickers!
I missed sending out Christmas cards this year because I waited to long! School has had me tied down all semester, and by the time I realized it Christmas was a week away. So I'll be sending out New Years cards soon!!! IM SO EXCITED! Let me know if you'd like one! I don't care who wants em' I just wanna send some!!! You don't need to send anything back, but it would be cool. I'm going to try and get these all send out by Thursday so PM me ASAP! Each card will come with a nice little message (Who doesn't love those?)and a doodle, and one will come with a bit extra! ;)
On a side note, I'm sorry (Newgrounds & my beloved Fulp) I haven't been that active lately. School kicked my bootay this semester, but its finally over! I'm super excited to work on more content soon and get it out when I can! I also helped act in a student project this semester for a student in the level above me. It's a really cheesy "power ranger"- ish kind of video, but if you want to check that out then the link is here! I also helped with some of the coloring and in-betweens for El Cid's latest toon, "Pegassus", so check that out too RIGHT HERE!!!!
I love you & God bless!
So I have a new animation up! It's a pretty simple, short DeathNote parody.
I'm not totally crazy about it but felt like I should finish it before moving on to something else.
I hope you all enjoy it!!!
WATCH IT HERE
Man, it feels good to be back and busy. How is everyone?
I recently got to enjoy going back to College Station and hanging out
with my favorite Newgrounds buddy, Matt (FrozenFire).
I even gave him a temp tramp stamp and watched him gargle gummy bears, hot and uncensored.
I've also recently done some voice work with ArtistGamerGal for her new series on Machinima called
Check em' out and show her some love!!!
Happy Pico Day! That is all!
Oh, I helped Veselekov with writing and voices for this little shindig. Check it out HERE!!!
