MartinPortugal's News

Posted by MartinPortugal - March 19th, 2021


Hello, the one person that is reading this, aka me.


Let's get the elephant out of the room, Friday Night Funkin' is a [sorta] Newgrounds thing that got mainstream, cool, i guess.


Ok now let's get to the boring stuff:


  • COVID sucks so my guitar lessons just started yesterday instead of in January.
  • This week I became interested in art again, but I'm not gonna take it as seriously as I did back then, and I'm not gonna try to animate anything [yet].
  • Bought a tripod today [been waiting 3 years to get one but everytime I had the chance I just ended up being a stupid kid and buying a game instead]
  • I also got interested in programming again, and I'm definitely gonna choose Sciences and Technology in high school so, I might as well be interested in something I'll probably learn anyway.
  • Might be getting a new PC in April (this one has specs that would be considered awful even in 2014, like a Celeron and 4GB ram, the new one will have at least 8GB RAM and at least an i5/Ryzen 5), just so you get the idea, everytime I misspell something as I'm writing this exact post, I right click to see the correct spelling and it takes 7 seconds to show the right click menu, that's just sad.


That's about it, as for my activity on this website, well, it depends. I don't wanna sound like a gatekeeper or like an old man but I prefer being on Newgrounds when there's not a lot going on, and since it is now popular as it was back in the 2000s (cuz of FNF) I might not come much often (sorry, but I as I said, I prefer when things are calm around here)


I'll be making some reviews with the tripod I bought (maybe some vlogs too). When I do, I'll put the YouTube link here, if you're interested.


that's about it, thanks for my future self for reading this [who knows when] in the future.

Ok, so it's been a while since the last post so I thought I should tell y'all what's going on with me.


  • Didn't get infected with COVID [yet]
  • Deleted my twitter account, got too addicted [advice: don't use twitter, there is TOO MUCH toxicity in there]
  • Started using reddit WAYYYY more often than I used to, but I'm afraid I'm getting too addicted, like I was with twitter.
  • Stopped being interested in programming [for now, I'm more interested in video/audio/photo editing, but I might get into programming again]
  • Got a guitar [Squier Affinity Telecaster] this christmas and ima try to learn it (I'm gonna start having classes this month)
  • Completely gave up on art (If I ever make art again, it'll probably just be pixel art. I'm sick of not being good enough, and I don't wanna try so hard to get better at it, specially since now I have like 3 more hobbies [guitar, photo/video editing, kinda programming] )


anyways, bye and have a good 2021 (even if 2021 is so bad that I honestly just wanna go back to 2020 bc COVID wasn't so bad here 2 months ago)

Not doing much digital stuff (besides this pikachu thing I did 2 days ago, it's the image below.)

Been sketching a lot tho (like, on actual paper)

My Twitter grew, A LOT (90 followers in 1 month is pretty good for me)

and people there like my stuff, and I'm not getting critiqued every single minute because I'm just a kid with a hobby and not someone working at disney.iu_157621_6503308.png

what can I say, I just stopped enjoying creating stuff and seeing other people's work only lets me down even more.

I don't know if this pause will be permanent, but who cares, REALLY?

There was a problem on the pen's button, I thought it would be easy to replace it, turns out wacom ctl-470 compatible pens cost around 80 bucks. I ended up just buying a new tablet (it's a XP-Pen Deco 01, its specs are better than some 200 dollar wacom intuos pros. and this one only cost me 55 dollars, which is even less than the pen.)

OK, 2019 passed way too fast, I didn't even remember I did the Sonic drawing was almost 2 years ago! I did nothing in 2019, gave up on Martin The Human (the animation, c'mon no one should give up on the character that is supposed to be themselves.)

Now I gotta do something since I've been stuck at home for 14 days now. I had some school work to do, but now Easter break started, but I'm still stuck at home. Bought a Wii this Christmas, yeah I know, I'm useless, but I want one since like 2011 (yeah it was already a bit late then) so I got one, never had a Nintendo home console, only handhelds, and it's pretty great, got one with Wii Sports of course, bought Mario Kart and Smash Bros. , ffs it's the Wii of course it's fun.

But yeah, that's basically it, I know none of the 16 followers care about my life (why should you), but i like to use my keyboard so I'll do anything to type on it.

how do you think the "martin the human" intro should be? I don't have any ideas :\


I am talking about the intro animation, not the music.

Ok, school is almost over (that's why it looked like was dead for the last month) and 2 out of the 4 voice actors recorded their lines for the REAL 1st episode of Martin The Human, I NEED to get all the lines recorded before I start animating, and that's a problem, because one of my friends' mic is shitty as fu- so i don't know how his lines will be recorded...


anyways... see you in june


[in june 2029 because that's when I will REALLY want to animate this.]

btw im obiously not serious

in case you don't get it, google changed its "doodle" just for me or any other person whose birthday is on april 18, you can see in that box the phrase: Happy Birthday MartinDisk! (martindisk is my main username on any social media, except newgrounds.)
