Earlier this week I found out that I tied for 6th place overall in the Summer Animation Jams! I was too busy to make a news post about this at the time, and at this point, I don't really feel the need to make a long post. I'm so happy to have participated. I've been exposed to so many talented people throughout each round and I'm honored to be ranked among them. Thank you to everyone who liked my stuff because you guys are the reason I tried to participate in every round. :)

I didn't manage to finish my entry for the last round of the animation jams, so I made a poster for the movie I came up with.


I'm sad I couldn't finish the project, but its not too bad because I can make it into a full video later on if I want. I've always tried to prioritize my life responsibilities over my personal projects, so there wasn't a high probability I would finish this with school starting. Still, I'm glad to have participated in the jams when I had the chance.

If you're wondering what's next from me, you don't have to wait too long. I animated a scene for wesmakowski's Toy Story 2 Redialed, which is planed to release on Halloween. There's a lot of cool stuff in this collab so you don't want to miss it.

Thank you to everyone following me! I feel like I haven't quite earned it because I know most of you are following for the animation jam stuff, but its still cool to see that number on my profile. I'm still going to be making more animations after the jams end, so look forward to that.

I'm sad to say that I won't be making an animation for round 3 of the summer animation jams. Progress was moving somewhat smoothly but I got too busy with some other stuff in life. The only way for me to finish my animation in time is to unhealthily push myself, so I'm making the call to cancel my project. Thank you to everyone who has recently followed me, I still intend to participate in round 4 so there’s more to look forward to.

And now with the sad news out of the way, go play Ashbelt. This is probably the Newgrounds game I've spent the most time playing. I played during a bunch of my classes earlier this year and it's great. My animation was going to be a fun little tribute to this game, so I thought I would mention it in case anyone was curious about what I was working on. I was actually on the leaderboard for like a day when people weren’t good at it yet.


My high score is currently 410 if you want a score to beat.

I got first in the jam thing less gooo! I'm genuinely really surprised by this. I actually had I really tough time making this one. I started late because I couldn't come up with an idea that I was happy with and that I was capable of creating in time. Even after everything started to fall into place, I had low expectations for its performance compared to my previous entry. I was very wrong. I think this is the most appreciated thing I have ever created. Again, I have to thank the voice actors a ton. They sold the effect so well, and that was what my entry came down to in the end. Selling the effect.

I think that after the jams are over, I'm going to make behind the scenes videos because man the making of these things are little journeys of their own.

The other entries where so good. I think the Pico and the Newgrounders one was my favorite, but there is so much to choose from. The Blockhead related ones are probably my favorite of the ones that didn't get top 15. Also shout outs to the madness cartoon because it got me to finally go watch all of madness combat. Good stuff.

I'm a bit stuck on what to make for this next round, but seeing as I made it through this before, I think you can expect at least a small effort thing to come from me.

Thank you all for being so dang supportive and congrats to all participants! See yall around

So I just finished working on my newest animation for the animation jams. I thought I should mention that I wont be home for the next few days, so I'm not going to be able to read most reviews or messages related to the video until I get back. Its a little sad to miss the live event, but I'll make sure to watch it in its entirety the following Saturday.

And until I get back, thank you if you liked the Tankforce video.

edit: I'm back now but I don't want to make another news post so yeah

I can't believe my animation actually made top 15! My baby animation made 7th place and I can't really express how I feel about it. Imposter syndrome really starting to hit because all of the other winning entries are amazing. I sort of feel like I have no choice but to participate in the next round, so I guess that's what I'm doing with my life now. This one's going to be tougher for me because I'm going to animate in a style I don't have experience in, but I'm determined to at least make something that's cool to see.

If there are any animators reading this who didn't participate in the first round, I highly encourage you to join in now. I loved watching the entries.

I managed to buy an rtx 3060 at msrp from best buy this morning. I wont be able to pick it up until next week but I'm already super hyped. I have a gt 710 in my computer so this is a massive upgrade for me. I currently render stuff from blender on my cpu because the 710 is that bad. Faster render times are going to help a lot with any 3d animations I make. Its a shame I couldn't get one sooner because I have to render an animation for the animation jam right now.

I don't have any other news really, I just wanted to share my excitement. :)

I was working on an animated short in December and I was only considering uploading it to youtube. On the 24th (the day I posted my animation) I happened to see someone talking about newgrounds on twitter. I was actually surprised because I thought it was long dead, but I took a look and immediately realized that I had to upload here. It's just nice to know that I get guaranteed views if I post something here. Its a real change of pace for me. It was awesome to get even a little bit of feedback on my work and I'm inspired to keep creating because of it.

So yeah, I'm new and I plan on being more active here. It will probably be a while before I finish another video project because life responsibilities get in the way, but I'm hopeful that I can at least post a drawing every once in a while.

Anyways enough with the boring stuff, here's a little animation I made that I hope to clean and color someday.
