Horror movies probably did it for me. I would always think: "One day I want to make one of those!".

Well I heard about the animator life style as a kid. Non stop partying, a girl for each day of the week, drugs and all that money.
Definitely the best decision I made in my life.

Well, a lot of things inspired me to become an animator. But the main thing that inspired me to become an animator was something that had nothing to do with animation, but it gave me an idea for an awesome Cartoon.

"The Book of Enoch" The story of how Satan has became the Fallen Angel.

"David and Goliath"

"The Odyesse"

"Wizard of Oz"

"Journey to the West"

"Hanzel and Gretel"

And many other Fables. My teacher would read these books and they had amazing illustrations. I loved the stories. I imagined them like a cartoon. I wanted to tell epic stories like these. So I became an animator. Though still working on my first piece. The script is nearly finished and I still haven't decided on a title.


To aspire to "fit in" or achieve normality, is to achieve mediocrity. Mediocrity is the painful reminder that you are nothing special.

Seeing Unbalanced (The first one) I had no idea what 'Flash' Was, so I tried to make it in pivot. xD

It failed.

Same, LF made we want to try out animation for the first time. Once I saw Adam Phillips and "Bitey of Brackenwood" though, that's when I decided I wanted to be "an animator" It's been the continued influence of my fellow newgrounders that has convinced me to try to pursue a career in this.

Quite simply, it was this movie:

John n' Richie were the reason I picked myself up a copy of Flash. At the time, CS3 was brand new, so I saved some money by buying Flash 8. Yes, it was a legal transaction. Perfect Kirby presented the idea that many video game characters can come together under a single world, or story. The idea had been done before, but only in sprite form. I wanted in. My spiritual tribute to Perfect Kirby became "Nintendo Story and ran for four episodes until I lost interest. Actually, I started losing interest sometime after the second movie. It had gotten off to such a rough start that I couldn't bring myself to continue. Animators often delete their previous works that they're not proud of, but I kept mine. I'm not sure why.

But regardless, even though Pikanjo have seemingly quit Perfect Kirby altogether as a result of college and adult life, I continue to find reason to keep trying, even after my list of failures. I like Flash, I just need to realize that more often.


I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

Stickmen and sprites... I consider them to be hindering and tumor like to proper animations and animators of the internet. They're simple and extremely easy to use; with sprites you don't have to draw anything and anyone can draw a stickman... and so many people who can't draw or just can't be bothered spending time on animations resort to sprites and stickmen movies. Then for some reason so many people enjoy all the many crappy stickmen and sprite movies that are made and all the better animations are extremely over looked and ignored in comparison.

truthfully, and I hate to admit this, but I kinda like sprites, and if it wasn't for sprites I wouldn't be on newgrounds probably. I am sick of all the naruto vs sasuke sprite movies that come out every day though, those suck.

Disappoint... I prefer stickmen to sprites, people who use sprites don't have to draw anything at all, they just tween other peoples work around the stage.
