I hope your Pico Day celebrations were a blast this year and you kept it going all weekend long! I spent the evening hanging out with some NG homies and we played some games online as well! Throughout the day though, as I checked out all of the AWESOME submissions, I was polishing up my special tribute to Newgrounds.
I initially came up with this idea months ago: an audio project where I impersonate some of my favorite Newgrounds characters. However, I never followed through on creating it, mainly due to just being so damn busy. So it looked like it was just going to be an idea left on the shelf.
Thankfully, when Tom made his initial Pico Day post, it sparked my interest to create this project. I thought to myself, "Let's make this happen, but let's also have it be a submission that celebrates Newgrounds." So instead of this project being a simple VoicesByCorey impersonation video, I took the time to choose characters and scenes that resonated with me. Scenes that led to memorable moments in my life.
Blockhead initially brought me to Newgrounds, Tankman made sure it retained my interest on the site. Metal Gear Awesome provided hilarious content and sparked an interest to voice act. Leo and Satan continued to provide comedy, but it did so through some rough patches in my life. Every clip that's included in this project means a great deal to me. This was my way of saying thank you to Newgrounds, Tom and to all of you. I wouldn't be where I am today without this website. I hope you hear the dedication I put into it and it brings a smile to your face as it did with mine as I recorded it. :)
This was my very first project ever for Pico Day. I knew releasing it as a Pico Day submission would be more satisfactory, and meaningful, than releasing it on a random day. In my eyes, it was, because I woke up on May 2 to find that it was front paged. I was so happy because it truly showed that my project resonated with the Newgrounds crew just as much as it resonated with me.
Please take the time to listen to my homage to Newgrounds if you haven't yet. If you have, thank you so much for your support! The love you guys show for my voice acting career means so much to me, truly. Let me know which impression you liked the most! :D
I LOVE YOU ALL AND I LOVE NEWGROUNDS! EVERYTHING, BY EVERYONE, FOREVER!
