CobaltRogueX's News

Posted by CobaltRogueX - January 2nd, 2024


Greetings, all. Happy new year, indeed. Sure hope it's better than 2023, which was rife with human rights violations across the pond and corporations making every platform from emails to image-posting even less creator-friendly than ever before here within Western borders. Bravo! Our world gets a little more dystopian every day.


Well, on a lighter note; luckily we have Newgrounds, still. Sweet, uncompromised Newgrounds. Knock on wood. Last year I surpassed my goal of 150 illustrations with a total of 182! Wowza! I still have a lot to learn, and thus a long way to go, so this year my goal is to make 200 illustrations using both pen and paint, with a few of my usual touch-ups in Photoshop whenever required.


In other news, I'm in the process of publishing a new action/thriller called Death Under Candyland's Eye, and I'm super excited about it, so allow me to shamelessly plug this thing for a second. It's about two men linked to the CIA whose private war soon escalates, forcing the involvement of their former employers and outside parties before a truly horrendous scandal can be brought to the world's attention.


I'm rather excited about this one. And it's the first book with cover art not done by myself, but by a super cool dude named Arial ZB, whom you may know as the artist responsible for a plethora of synthwave covers, like Perturbator's earlier LPs or Trevor Something Does Not Exist. The paperback will be out on the 4th and can be found among my other books if you follow the Amazon link below!

Anyway, I hope everyone on here stays safe and I hope your 2024 is better than your 2023 was, whether your 2023 was good or bad. With everything that's been happening in the world, I didn't think we'd make it this far. Hopefully in that regard I'm continuously proven wrong.

What the title says. Hopefully next year will be better.


Posted by CobaltRogueX - October 3rd, 2023


I won't be following the official list of ideas, but I will be completing one black-and-white piece per day for the entirety of October! Currently working on the third day as of this writing. Pretty excited about this year's, as last year was the first time I managed to complete the one-drawing-a-day challenge in its entirety. But last year, I was aimless and just passed it by the seat of my pants. This year, I'm maintaining a visual theme of darkness and consistency. This year shall be better than the last.

Hello, all. Bit of a minor setback. I've been working on BRITTLE FIST but I didn't get to make my summertime deadline for it. So I guess I'll aim for a fall release. Death Under Candyland's Eye is still on schedule.


BRITTLE FIST is a dark cyberpunk story about a boxer who attempted to cheat the oppressive system that demanded he lose a fight. When he wins, he's severely punished with the death of his family and the mutilation of his fists. He soon bounces back for revenge, training to take his life back from the nightmare forces who stole it.


Look for it this Halloween!


Death Under Candyland's Eye is a political action thriller about a former sleeper agent seeking revenge and salvation at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. As he chases his former mentor and new enemy through the streets of New York to the jungles of Cambodia and the red-light districts of Bangkok, the CIA seeks to silence them both before they can expose the dark truths of 'Project Candyland'.


Look for it this winter!

Hi, everyone! I've just released The Laughter in the Woods, the third instalment in what I'm referring to as The Coldwater Tapes, a series of psychological and technological horror novellas and novels about a grisly and disturbing mystery that consumes the entirety of Coldwater, Ontario and its surrounding areas. Cults, home invasions, homemade videotapes, supernatural inflictions, technological anxiety, and other things descend upon the good people of Severn Township. Somehow, it's all connected...


Fans of analog horror and late nineties/early 2000's horror will find something to enjoy in these. FOR MATURE READERS ONLY.


If you're interested in reading The Coldwater Tapes, check out:


BODYCAM (1997)

iu_828000_7141760.jpg

A husband struggles in the aftermath of an attack that left his wife in a catatonic state after he receives a videotape recording of the assault in his mailbox. Soon he begins to feel strange, like someone's watching him, invading his mind and his home. When he receives another mysterious tape in the mail, he knows the same assailant isn't finished with his family, or him. Fearing for his young daughter's safety, he prepares to kill the assailant, but the assailant's means of entering the house may be more complicated than anyone could imagine...

SHE WATCHES ME BURY HER (2000)

iu_828001_7141760.jpg

One fateful Friday in October of the year 2000, at 6:52 PM, Cameron Morgan will kill his wife and bury the remains in the backyard.

He's been doing it every night, for years. The problem isn't necessarily that Cameron keeps killing his wife.

The problem is that his wife keeps coming back.

Things are different this time. Over the course of a single weekend, Cameron and their three children are about to witness just how dangerous mommy dearest can be--and mommy will test the limits of how far a desperate father will go...

THE LAUGHTER IN THE WOODS (2000)

iu_837388_7141760.jpg

December of the year 2000. The Carmichael Family Reunion is something everyone looks forward to every year, hosted by Grandma at her wonderful house in the woody outskirts of Coldwater, Ontario.

But this time, no one will be going home, because something is out there, lurking in the shadows cast by the sunset... watching from the darkness of the night... and slowly, it approaches. The Carmichaels don't know what it is or where it came from. All they know is that it wants to get inside.

I didn't make my publication goal but I did get a fair amount of work done still. This year has not been too kind to me but fingers crossed for 2022. Please don't suck...

Got a few plans for this year--to get a decent job (doubtful these days, lol), to paint very well, and to publish three more works this year. Got two of them almost finished, which is a big yay for me. I already published one this year, called BODYCAM: the story of a grieving husband struggling to protect his daughter from something that wants in. It starts with mysterious and disturbing videotapes arriving at his house. When that doesn't work, they try a more direct tactic. This is a horror novella that I'm pretty proud of. If you're interested, you can check it out in the links below!

Alright, got 'er inked! I want to do a few more practice pieces before I go ahead and run paints over something this intricate. If I can get more successes like Death Awaits I think that's when I'll tackle this one. I need to get the hang of skin tones and steadying my hand for more intricate details. Kind of excited.

A quick preview for something I plan on doing over in watercolours once I get the inking done. Just a matter of getting markers that won't smear when wet. Currently waiting on finer-tipped pens for that purpose to fill in the little details.

iu_239627_7141760.jpg


Will probably do one or two more drawings before I get back to finishing this one, at least till those markers arrive. Stay tuned.
