Animation is coming to a close soon. I have about 2 scenes left (not counting camera angles/shots) and I'll be done with the animation. Still got some backgrounds to draw up and add music, but those aspects won't take that long.


Plus, the animation process is actually becoming faster now!

Using Toon Boom as of late, and what would've taken me 2 or 3 weeks on a phone, just took me only 7 days whilst still using the same art style and framerate (no tweening, only hand-drawn) and having minimal to zero wrist pain!!!


Release date might be pushed a little further, however, since I've been busy with school and such. Expect it to be done by August 2021 at the latest.


Oh, and here what my new tablet looks like, Cheers!:

Don't animate on a phone :(


Taking a break for my hand's sake for the rest of February. Maybe I should switch to Pencil 2D afterwards - it's about as good as Flipaclip (and yes, I remove the watermark lmao).

Hope everyone is having a good year so far!! I have to be honest, after all the stuff that happened in 2020, both politically-speaking and in my personal life, I feel like a totally different person - compared to, say, last September for example. I have a different outlook on things now and I feel much more positive than ever (whilst also cringing at things I've said in the past lmao). I hope everyone is excited for 2021; just remember that even though 2020 has sucked major C0CKkk, it has changed us for the better. We are truly heading towards a much brighter future. 😊


Also, don't forget: I haven't given up on my new animation. Expect it to be completed by June 2021 or earlier!!

This is the last preview I'll show you guys for quite a while, because from hereon it goes into more spoiler-heavy territory (I don't wanna ruin the fun for you guys).

(sorry for the reduction in quality. Apparently the size of the initial GIF was too large for Newgrounds as an independent news post)


Also I'm ditching my current alias., so alongside this new project you're looking at, I'm going to have a new username as well. I don't know if I'll have a main OC or anything like that, but we'll see!

I try not to talk about drama or anything, but I just want to say I want to move on and improve myself as a person. For the past year or so I had been dealing with some sort of depression cycle, and that largely has to do with being isolated in real life (due to COVID and not attending a school I actually like for the second year in a row but have to put up with due to budgetary or pandemic concerns) and drama that I accidentally caused online for myself. I've had at least three situations of drama due to miscommunication and being depressed because of isolation and overexposure of social media. This drama deals with people who know the name of my YouTube alias, which is what this Newgrounds account has been named as since creation. Up until 2019, never have I expected or experienced so much drama in my life, and that was until I started using Discord. All of what is discussed in this post is why I deleted my two Twitter accounts, YouTube channel, and Discord.


I don't want to be known as a pathetic, miserable individual who keeps making hell for himself with his own actions, one who's been affected by online negativity and huge amounts of stress and continues the onslaught of negativity and toxicity brought onto him to other people. It seems that being online has done more harm than good for me, and I was slowly becoming more and more depressed around and more and more angry with everybody I knew online, even to people who used to be close to me, due to mistrust, miscommunication, and lies about me and others. Now that I finally got rid of all my social media, I can finally make a new beginning for myself. I can finally stop worrying so much about life and move on with a brand new outlook. I will be making a new persona for myself for my artwork and will also refrain from being so personal with my thoughts online. I just want to be a positive person, and I think reducing social media will really help. I can focus on my art projects and release them online for others to enjoy with me. I will be making a new username for myself as well! :)


I will be making another YouTube channel, don't worry! You'll still see new content on there and here on Newgrounds! I also have the best of the videos I made on that channel archived, so expect some reuploads!! I'll eventually make a new Twitter too but only for status updates about my channel or sharing links of videos, not so much for personal reasons like following and liking other people's content on Twitter - because that can get mixed up with insanely negative posts from others as well.


As much as I want to complain to you all about some of the things I've gotten into, I know some of the things I've said and done are my mistakes. Some of the drama, however, were heavily exaggarrated by others due to being blown out of proportion and overlooked by large groups of people online, but I acknowledge that even the ones that are inaccurate or not true to what the actual circumstances/statements were are all mainly due to my lack of caution. I've been more and more cautious about what I say online since these events, and I know that most of this drama is not something I ever had or will see in real life. I'm just glad I can finally make a new beginning for myself, yet do the things I enjoy.


I hope to share more content with you guys again soon enough. Anyways, back to working on this animation!! Hope to get it done by 2021 and then create and share more frequent projects and videos for the rest of that year! ;)

I haven't really been active here, but for the past four months I have been working on this animation. I believe it will be my first-ever completed animated video, as I have not seen any purpose of forfeiting now that I've been working on it for so long. I cannot wait to show you guys when it's done by the end of the year! ;)iu_127712_7044560.jpg

To avoid spoilering any surprises and to keep working on this project longer, I'm not going to show you guys too much until its completed and uploaded to Newgrounds. Here is just one of the more mundane scenes, just to give you an idea what it could look like beyond this:

iu_127713_7044560.gif*this is before other characters or camera pans had been added.


This project is *almost* halfway done, and then the more wacky stuff of the video will be animated. Stay tuned for more updates if necessary! ;)


Edit: Did i seriously just write "spoilering" instead of "spoiling?" 😅😅

I apologize for my inactivity. I've been going through some personal issues that have really put my mood into a pit, and I just wanted to shelter myself from others and not do anything anymore. I'm still trying to get used to college but this semester has been really bad for me socially and mentally, and I feel as if I'm alone most of the time and that there is nobody on campus who I could hang out with or reach out to - everyone is busy.

I'm getting a new job next semester as well as maybe joining some more campus activities or whatever, but right now I literally cannot do any activities or meet new people because of my awful, awful class schedule.


Fortunately, I'm taking more and more actions in enhancing a positive mood of mine and be more open to talk to whomever. I'll get back to making art again - one of them I just started this week ;) - and finally be comfortable with myself and my campus environment. I assume next semester will be much better, now that I will likely have more opportunities to finally be a mentally-healthy and sociable person again :)

I know this is a filler post, but I just wanted to let you know I'll be posting two drawings here pretty soon. One is already finished, but the other one (a surreal/weird drawing) is almost complete - it's been taking over week to make so I hope you all like the final result!

They'll both be posted on the same day, so stay tuned! ;)

I was going to work on this project of mine, but doing some reworks again.  I want to do this in a different direction.  For a while, this video series or whatever was going to be more like an adventure/comedy/slice-of -life story.  Now I realize that with the resources and time I'm working with, that wouldn't work out so well, too ambitious.  

Instead, I'll keep the same visual style and humor, but I'll do it in a more controlled setting, while still having a ton of moments of absurdity.

Apologies for being very vague about all the details, but I've actually been changing plans and styles again and again.  Also, I say "but" a lot.  

Because of the changes, I'll be writing more.  Won't take too long though, and even then I'll still be uploading art here.  I'll still be myself! :)
