DISCLAIMER: At one point in this short I make a little joke about Machinima, I want to make it clear that, I have no problems with Machinima, I'm a Machinima director. I'm not the greatest animator in the world, but my opinion of SOME of the other Machinima animators is quite low, in fact because of how bad their animations are it INSPIRED me to animate, because if they can do it, anyone can.

Anyway, this is just a little animation about me making more animations. So every cartoon I make is essentially part of a series about me becoming a better animator, and potentially befriending other great animators! This was also a little tribute to every animator mentioned in the video, cause you know, I'm "fighting the best to become the best" sort of deal.

And the song at the end is "The Sunlit Earth," from Shadow of the Colossus.

EDIT: Sometimes when the video loads it might zoom in, just right click and "show all." I have no idea why it's doing this now.

Such a fantastic way of telling of an animators rise to fame. Where did you learn to animate that? you should pm me some time and let me know.

Hey thanks!

I just watched a lot of animations by Egoraptor, Harry, HotDiggedyDemon and already spent many years drawing (comics) in Flash, so I thought I'd start animating :D

I know just how you feel, wanting to get into this seemingly elite crowd. But man, you have a great original take on approaching the subject, even if it isn't an original one. Ever since I saw your first upload on this account about Dark Souls, I've been looking out for your animations ever since. You're a diamond in the rough, man. Keep up the great animations and I'm really digging this 'How I got through' series. Though I'm cool if you do whatever. Great job and good luck learning to be even more successful.

Btw, I'm glad I caught this in judgment. 8 prot points your way.

Hah, it's the dream! Becoming good enough to be friends with other animators, and good enough to make a decent buck :D

And thank you :]

Good luck Mortal, We'll be watching you. Its great to see someone/something new on the front page with fresh promise. I love our 'animating elite' as much as any NGer of course though. Your flash offers a very valid perspective on the nature of animators and their reputations around here. Well done, refreshing to see, and I expect more great things from you in the future. Keep on making those queer little cartoons :)
