Alright, time to report some good news for once!

:bulletblue: My job search is at an end for now, as I was fortunate enough to get a paid internship doing storyboards and animation for a pretty awesome project.  It involves some crazy stuff, but I'm really pumped up about it.  What's even better is that I earn credits from the job as well, so I can drop one of my classes during the semester to focus more on the internship and whatever else I want to work on, haha.  Hoping things go well!

With the job search out of the way, things are starting to lean more towards my own projects again.  I also recently took a vacation to Disney World, and came back refreshed and excited about my own projects and a lot of new things. :happybounce:  I do have a couple goals that I want to try accomplishing before the semester starts again, so we'll see how that goes.  Lots of exciting things to look forward to!

:bulletblue: As for shoutouts, I'm going to mention something that's rather unknown right now, but is still a really cool project:

ShipAntics, an adventure game geared more towards a younger audience, is now out on iOS: www.shipantics.com/  Been following the development on this game for quite a while now, and I'm happy I did.  If you like the Humongous Entertainment games, this game borrows a lot of the good stuff those games had and brings it all into a really appealing package full of great art design and animation.  The only real qualm I had with it is that the first episode is really short, but hopefully this is addressed more in the next two episodes.

:bulletblue: Lastly, a question for those of you who have read this far:

If I started a Patreon campaign, would any of you be interested in helping fund my animated works in exchange for getting a behind-the-scenes look at how I make my animations?  I actually have a campaign mostly set up (which is only focused around my animated works on YouTube), but I'm still working on making a video for advertising it and figuring out other details.  The idea I have for it right now is to allow backers to access a Patreon-only feed, which will be devoted to posting works in progress and showing certain animations early before they're released to the public.  And whatever else I can come up with for rewards, lol.  You would only pay every time I release a finished animation on YouTube, which isn't something I do all that often anyway, so there shouldn't be a big problem with paying for too many animations.  You can also set a limit on your account for how much you pay in a month, which also prevents paying too much in case I do go insane and post a bunch of animations in a month. :P

The goal would be to allow me more time to animate and manage my own projects, and less time doing unrelated freelance work to help cover bills and pay for equipment.  And of course, the money earned through Patreon would be completely devoted to buying equipment, software, bringing in other talent and covering bills to help make more of my animated projects a reality.  If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, let me know in the comments or send me a note! :D

That's all I have for now!  Take care everyone!

Hi there! My name is Nick, and I usually animate stuff. They usually consist of fan stuff, like for Sonic or even My Little Pony, but I also work on original stuff as well. I absolutely love making stuff for everyone to enjoy, no matter anyone's background.

Sometimes I draw stuff too. Usually designs for characters and things like that. I love working in different art styles, but I always seem to come right back to my own "style" of a cartoon-y loose feeling for everything. Not too much though; just enough to give the impression that it's a cartoon on the outside. :)

I sometimes make games as a hobby. Almost none of them ever get finished, but it's the thought and experience that counts! Right?

...am I Right?

You going to say something?

Hello?

Are you still reading this? Because I'm just gonna stop with typing stuff in this box if you're not going to read it.

FINE. BE THAT WAY.


GOSH.
