Fanart Showcase

Sorry my next video is taking so long. Between reshoots, scheduling, and general technical BS, it's taking a lot longer than I thought (I friggin' hate doing late holiday specials). However, you guys have been very patient with me, so here's a little chunk of fan appreciation to tide you over for a bit. Over the years of doing these videos, people have done fanart of me. I figured it might be nice to showcase some of them for everyone to see. So without further ado, let's get started. (Note: All of these pictures link to their respective artists' pages)

I like this one a lot. It's cool, sexy, and somewhat anime-esque. I especially love the pose that just seems to say, "I'm awesome and I know it."

I'm not gonna lie. This one is straight-up adorable.

Jesus Christ, that chin...

So, there's actually a story behind this one. Apparently someone commissioned one of my college friends to draw this one, but never paid for it. Because she never got the money from them, she wasn't going to upload it, but decided to anyway because she thought I would appreciate it. Guys, don't be like that jackass. Pay for your commissions.

This is a very impressive vector. Although I'm not sure how to feel about the fact that people apparently really want to see me as a pony.

So, ever since that gag video where I accused the Nostalgia Critic of ripping me off via time machine, a very common theme in my fanart is the two of us going against each other. This one seems a little one-sided, though.

I really like how this one outlined my eyes under the shades. Fun Fact: Sunglasses give a +10 Bonus in staring contests. Also, Lindsay Ellis (formerly The Nostalgia Chick) is in there for good measure. Why not? We're both Johnson City natives.

LEGOs. Because why not?

This one looks kinda like an action movie shot.

Now there's a team-up for a good cause.

Until I post my Santa Clause 3 review, let's just keep pretending it's still Christmas. It's slightly less sad that way. I really like the style of this one. It's simplistic, but cute. This artist also did a random comic where the three of us, along with the Angry Video Game Nerd, start fighting for silly reasons.

Now this one isn't actually fan art of me per se. But the artist clearly credited me as a design inspiration for their Rise of the Guardians OC. I just think it's really cool that I was able to inspire something like that.

And that about wraps it up. If you have any fanart of any kind you'd like to share, send it my way, and I might feature you in another one of these showcases when the time comes. Until then, thank you guys for being some of the greatest fans a guy like me could ask for.

There's Another Santa Clause

I know I said I'd stop doing late holiday specials, but I've put so much time and effort into these videos that I refuse to just shove them aside for next December. Besides, technically the Christmas season isn't over until Epiphany in mid-January. So like the Three Wise Men, these three videos took a long time to make the holiday extra special. Expect the next two soon...

Special thanks to my new title card artist Heather Warren. You can check her out here.

I get requests all the fucking time from anime nerds who want me to review this garbage. So, here it is:

He Lives!

Sorry about the hiatus guys, countless IRL problems have been hitting me hard and stress from other botched projects have been murdering my motivation to make videos for a while. But that ends today. I already have two more videos in production as we speak, and they'll be up somewhere around the end of the year. Hopefully, you guys won't mind one more late holiday special.

Regarding the Mass Video Takedown

UPDATE: I've been accepted into Dailymotion's official program. My videos will be distributed through them from here on out.

I’ve been purged from

Since their company was bought out, they have drastically changed their user policies in ways that have completely screwed over a wide variety of independent content creators (especially internet reviewers) including myself and several TGWTG personalities. Due to their new Terms of Use policies, they have decided to purge a large number of their users. In July, I was blocked from uploading videos, and as of yesterday, my entire account and everything uploaded to it has been deleted.

Now this doesn’t necessarily mean the end of The Necro Critic. However, this does mean that I can’t upload anything until I find a new video host that will let me monetize my videos. While I do have a YouTube account that I have most of my videos on, their particular approach to copyright and fair use is a constant pain to deal with. Considering the fact that I’ve spent the past two months trying to dispute alleged copyright claims from the Spanish distributor of one of the movies I’ve reviewed, YouTube isn’t exactly a viable option in that department.

Now, I know some of you are wondering why I’m putting such a high priority on monetizing my videos. It’s true that when I started out that this was just a hobby that I was doing for fun. However, I’ve recently been struggling to keep up with the hardware required to make my videos. On top of that, a few months ago the bandwidth for my website had exceeded the amount that allows for a free account. So thanks to webhosting fees, equipment costs, software updates/upgrades, and various personal finances, I have reached the point where producing videos for free just isn’t an option anymore.

So until I can figure out a solution to my video-hosting dilemma, my videos will remain unavailable from this site. Until then there’s always my Youtube and Facebook page. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions as to how I can handle this situation, feel free to comment to let me know.

PS: I'm still working on the my next review. Expect to see it shortly after I find a new video host.
