It's been 9+ years but I'm finally back on Newgrounds. Unlike my last post from 2008, this time it's real...I'm back making Flash animations. After I made that Sephiroth vs Mogs parody and those (once part of the old Collections now sadly removed from NG entirely ) AMVs in 2003.... I "left." This was due to life's many challenges and my career paths over the years that just,well...sucked. The cards are back in my favor again and I gave myself a refresher course in Flash. Thus, I'm trying to fill in the long gap between late 2003/early 2004 and now.
Over the past week I've made three short animations based on my fiancee's sketches and ideas... two of which are now here on NG. I'm waiting for my drawing tablet to arrive so I can make much better and longer animations with my own writing and direction; plus more that my fiancee wants me to make with her.
Some ideas on the table are my own Game Grumps Animated clips, a long overdue next episode to Sephiroth vs Mogs, my own series based on my old employment at Friendly's Ice Cream and other ideas that pop up in my head. I can say that my return to Newgrounds was thanks to artists like Egoraptor, RedMinus and Oney. They inspired a NG old fart like me to get my ass in gear.
(2014 update: I'm still here ^^;; been working on my site and game but I do want to put up a better flash animation in due time)
Well, I wasn't able to quit my job just yet since they gave me free health care on a part time schedule, but my days in the job world are coming to a close soon.
Anyways, I've been working on the 4th version of my anime web site which will include an interactive gallery featuring anime pics, anime figure pictures, fan art for fans to submit, japanese idols and more. Other features will be an iphone/mobile section, a better amv section, more features for my blog and of course a better, bigger anime store.
This all should seal the deal and get me in the anime business full time and finally, finally not have a boss over me. With the free time, I'll have the chance to make original Flash animations, finally make a sequel to the Sephiroth vs Mogs animation and even make my flash video game currently called "Project Fumi" This after the 6 some odd years of no new stuff from me since life likes to kick me in the teeth on a daily basis and there is much more to do in life than be stuck at a job all day working for someone else. Anime voice acting is also on the table and I've even got myself working a bit with BusinessWeek so life's been busy but I can never forget that my semi-web stardom was because of Newgrounds and I'm looong overdue for some cool new stuff here.
I'm back. I know....its been about 4 years since I was last here really. I'll be finally, finally be retiring from my job in September 08 at the ripe old age of 24, lol and I'll just be working on my anime site and back to doing FLASH. Currently I'm in the development stages of the big project I wanted to do before which is my first Flash video game. I do want to continue the award-winning Sephiroth vs Mogs and maybe some other surprises.
