I O U One Explanation

2015-09-08 19:08:33 by DigitalBluez

I guess I owe the people who follow me an explanation for my absence. Sorry. :P

Basically, it's been a long, roller coaster of a hectic life I've been living the past seven months since my last post. Between graduating from college, insufficient equipment, finding employment to pay off student debts, and a severe lack of motivation, I haven't been able to sit down and crack down on things I've been aspiring to be. This is mostly due to responsibilities to not only others, but to myself. However, I look back sometimes and feel like it's not much of an excuse to leave my creativity in the dark, and after some self-evaluations, I feel as if I now know what I want to do.

So here I am now; a graduate with an advanced diploma in New Media Production & Animation, working somewhere not related to my field to support myself and my own projects. I've been swinging back and forth between the things I've learned and the things I want to learn. & after revisiting a couple of favorite NG artists (Short-Factor, Waterflame, Mattashi, and Alvin-Earthworm, in particular), I've realized that, as much as 3D animation has awe inspired me, I had completely forgotten my interest in sprite-animation; the one form of media that initially sparked my love for animation (aside from Anime and Cartoons) in the first place. Since then, I've been making time for myself, trying to learn the tips and tricks of sprite animation, since I'm fairly familiar with how to make pixel art.

I just want to make this clear; just because I've chosen to teach myself sprite animation in flash, does not mean I'm forsaking music making. In addition to chiptune music, I want to try other genres of music to make. I've learned so much these past three years, that its opened up a lot of possibilities for me to experiment and go forward with; like post production artistry, score composing, CGI, cosplay, etc. So sit tight. I promise to whoever already follows me that good things will come around soon from me. :)
