Hey, fellas! I know I haven't made one of these in a while, and I haven't had a good opportunity to sit down and write one, so I thought it'd be a good idea to make a crude little update on what's been going on in my err.. artistic life for the past year. I've been very quitet for most of it, although I've lost count of how many times I've tried writing a news post and quitting after 2 sentences. This post will not be too long and have prestige, journalistic level structure, as it is 12:30 AM and I'm simply too exhausted to give a shit about that.
Anyhow, it has come to my attention that I've garnered over 400 followers on Newgrounds, for which I'm seriously incredibly fucking greatful. For when a time when I was a young little boy my childhood dream was to make a name for myself on the website that fed me hours of enjoyment every day of the week for years to come that is Newgrounds. I've always believed and always will believe that newgrounds is the apotheosis of creative online entertainment and collaborative spirit, and my stuff being acknowledged by over 400 people, It's fucking incredible, seriously, thank you! <3
In 2015 I took it up on myself to explore different artistic mediums, try new things, be more involved in the creative process, as well as be more productive in the animation realm. As a result, my ambition and interest for producing animations have been increasing more than ever before. Below I've listed a few notable things I've contributed to and made on my own this year.
ok here we gooo
- Sheep Collab! - that was loads of fun to do, I admit i didn't think it would turn out that great but i was so very wrong.
- Pico: High-Fly - This was a strenuous one since Pico Day was right around the corner and I had dabbled with a few other different concepts for a pico cartoon, making an elaborate story and considerable amount of progress on one of them, but there was no way I could've finished it on time as there were very complex scenes I had planned to do so instead I just shat this out in 3 weeks. I did attempt to compensate the shitty story for at least decent animation, though. And that is actually very evident. I still hadn't learned well enough what I needed to sacrifice in given circumstances in a cartoon.
- Picollage 2015 - I'm so happy I got to be a part of this. Thanks so much to @Sabtastic for the opportunity! Wonderful collage, being able to follow progress on other people's pieces was also a great treat! Definitely would collab again!
NG 20th Anniversary Collab - This could very well be the biggest collab on the face of the site. And not in the slighest way am I disappointed with anybody's contribution to it. It's one giant mesh of awesome into a single collab, all celebrating the greatness of NG.
I have plenty more things to touch on but I'll leave those for another time, for now all I can say is that the future is looking bright. I'm tumbling head-first into the world of animating and I have something very exciting in store which I hope to show you bits and pieces of along the way. That is all for now. Stay tuned!
