Hey there, Newgrounds. It's been a long time since I made a news post, so here I am to sort of give you the backstory and to shamelessly selfpromote.
Before about half a year ago, I had been working at a nearby audiovisual company. They were a friendly employer, but the stress was getting increasingly hard to deal with. I had to be available almost 24/7, often worked on unnanounced projects and a lot of what I had to do was web programming (which is something I only have a base knowledge of). The pressure was getting to me and this all culminated in a small, but meaningful mess I had made in 1 of the 'sudden' projects.
Long story short; about half a year ago, I both quit + lost my job and finding a new one has proven a massive bitch. In order to stop some of the financial bleeding, I am open to do some freelance stuff. For example; I opened up a Fiverr account which you can visit here:
If you have are in need of any illustration work, drawings or artwork, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am open to a lot of stuff and can really use the help. Even if you don't, just sharing this anywhere (friends, Newgrounds, Twitter, Facebook, etc) would take 10 seconds of your time and could help me tenfold. I hate asking for this kind of stuff, but it really does help.
I am currently also improving my character animation, especially in After Effects. Considering how many companies love that nice, inoffensive, bland, corporate and flat style of animation, I am currently working on making that creation process run faster. This is how I made my Pico Day animation loop, as well as my latest movie (Based on redlettermedia's parody podcast Nerd Crew)
However, I'm also doing some character animation in Adobe Animate with FBF animation, in order to not lose my own sanity. Again, if you need any animation loops done, feel free to let me know. If I'm practicing, might as well help someone in the process.
That's the basic gist of the situation. I would like to thank Newgrounds in general for being such a fantastic environment and even in this situation, I wouldn't dream of not supporting it. I hope you all have an amazing day and hope that my next News Post won't be literally a year later and with a bit more of a positive message.
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!
