Entry #8

I'm Still Alive!

2012-01-10 09:30:14 by FlashfireEX

So, it's been a good 8 months since I made one of these front page posts so I guess I'm well overdue for an update. Okay, let's see here...

First, I've decided that I'm pretty much done with sprite animation. As fun as it is, I know that it will never get me anywhere in terms of professional work so I've decided to end it. It's a good thing I didn't start a series or anything. Hell, I have yet to even post a solo project. I've been taking a long break from animation and still intend to define my artistic ability before I ever release an animation.

Going back to the thing about not releasing a solo project yet, in it's evidence, I can never finish anything. I've started so many projects since I've joined Newgrounds that I can't even count them. These include, but aren't limited to: short movies, first-parters to a series and even huge games. What happens with every project is that I seem to slowly (or quickly) drift away from a project until I completely halt production on it (and of course I rarely return). I also tend to keep coming up with great ideas for them and can't keep up which obviously doesn't help. I've developed so many great project ideas yet I can never finish or, occasionally, even start them. The only way I seem to be able to finish things is when I have others motivating me with their optimism and own big contributions to the project (which is why all my projects as of now are collabs). I suppose that sort of pressure sort of force-motivates me. I hope to find a better way to keep myself dedicated to projects in the near future or I guess I can say goodbye to an animation-based career (though I've been thinking about getting into special effects lately).

Also, Youtube. As overrated as I am there, I have almost 5000 subscribers. If you've ever liked anything I've made, help me out by subscribing. If not, you should probably have stopped reading this a long time ago. I haven't posted a video in a long time, let alone an animation, but I'll get back into it eventually. I'm still very active on there. I've been posting a lot to my alt account though. Subscribe there too if you care at all for anime and Youtube Poops.

Oh, yes. Abobo's Big Adventure. Be sure to check this out if, for whatever reason, you haven't heard of this yet. I can't wait for tomorrow to play this beast.

People usually mention their personal lives (things delaying their projects) in these things but I can't say school has really been that hindering for me lately. I'm still only in high school after all.

Well, that's really all I have for this update. I can't say I'm the most productive person in the world but I hope that I'll develop better habits in the coming future. Thanks for reading my update and have a good day.

Does this mean the stuff I voiced for you is now trashed?

FlashfireEX responds:

Sorry. I'm afraid so. :(
