Long time no see! I promised myself I'd make more of a presence this year, so despite not feeling particularly great (seasonal depression is it called? is that a real thing?) i thought itd be good to say hello.
Last year was kind of quiet for me creatively here, couple reasons for that, professionally, I've been doing more front-end than animation/art, i kind of like it, not sure if i like it MORE, but its rewarding in its own way, and the turnaround times are tighter and ship out faster. That said, I was short handed on my team for most of the year so there was no shortage in things to do myself. My commute to work was brutal, and the work was brutal, and while I learned alot, I had little time to dedicate to animation/game projects.
That said, I need to really put the pedal to the metal for a game for that Pixel Day event later this month. Didn't do as much work as I thought last week (i left my files at the office amongst other things) so got my work cut out for me. Still feel like its doable tho.
Thats all in a nutshell, I've been talking to more animators again, and starting to make other peoples work my business so hopefully that will inspire my own stuff. Ok thats all! Glad things are moving in the right direction here at NG, youtube, well i wont even talk about that.
