hey there whoever's reading this i got an update for ya! the new animation is coming along and it should be done by the end of this week - woohoo!! unlike my last two animations, and much like the ones before that, i'm at the point in working on it where i'm going "holy shit this sucks this was a terrible idea." but hey - maybe by LIKING the last two, i jinxed myself, and that's why they didn't do well! (that's entirely irrational, but this is how my brain works). partially kidding, but i'm still excited to have something out. i really like the feeling of having something new out there. there was a time when i wasn't doing that and HOO BOY am i glad that's not now!
two years ago right now i had just come up with the idea for my first animation - and man, did it suck! glad i never posted it here. i'd have prob been ripped to shreds. haha. very glad i'm still hard at work on this journey and thank you newgrounds friends and anyone who has ever watched one of my animations for giving me a chance and your time. i hope i entertain you!
i'm not quite sure what animation i'm going to do next. i have a backlog of ideas i can choose from (scripts, thoughts i can develop, etc) but the one thing i planned to work on may not work out. i had a short i started around november of last year and i've spent all year refining it and going back to it, but unfortunately now that it's time to begin animation on it, i feel like it's severely underdeveloped (even with a year of time spent). there are two things i can do: say fuck it and make it anyway and not "save my good ideas" (ian-jones quartey expanded upon this in a tumblr post) or just keep chipping away at it. i'd love for it to be rid of my mind forever but for some reason this story is special to me and i want to keep working at it. so here we are.
i've definitely got more plans for my animations looking at the fall, though. around november i'm gonna start on one and have it out around christmastime. ive been working on it for a year (script-wise) and i'm really excited for it. that one is for sure already ready to animate.
wow, this got long, i should stop. kudos if you're still reading. new animation will be out hopefully by friday! weeeee!
