They say no news is good news, but around these parts it usually means you're gone, and not coming back.
Obviously, this is not the case for me. Until a week or two ago, it had been over a year since I posted anything new on here. Some of you might be wondering why. So here's the best explanation I can give:
I have a life outside of this site. It takes up most of my time and energy. Sometimes, I get home from work and all I want to do is play video games. Sometimes I'm hanging out with a friend or two, and sometimes I have a date with a real-life woman, instead of one on a computer screen. Sometimes, I just don't feel like doing anything at all.
Motivation is difficult for me to manage. When I don't feel like drawing, I don't draw. It's as simple as that. When I get that creative impulse, that drive to make what I have in my head into something that other people can see, THAT'S when I draw, animate and code. I don't really make any of this stuff for any reason other than "because I want to," and sometimes, I just don't want to.
Mind you, I haven't been doing nothing all this time. I've been working on a variety of things, experimenting, learning. Some on my WIPs have potential. Others don't. Some might be overreaching. But I'll finish what I can, when I can, and post it here.
Now that that's out of the way, onto more specific things:
MY NEXT FLASH GAME: It is definitely still happening, though I've suspended work on it in favor of finishing a few other small projects I'm working on. Trust me, I've already put too much work into this thing to just let it die. It's going to be awesome. But please, PLEASE don't ask me for an estimate of when it will come out, because I don't want to put a specific deadline on it. I'll give you a rundown of some of the features, though:
1) It will feature an original character as the protagonist.
2) It is a fantasy point-and-click graphic adventure game.
3) It won't be as ridiculously easy as 40 Days. It will be possible to lose, and you probably won't beat it on your first try. In terms of complexity, it is MUCH more so than 40 Days.
A SIX-PICTURE SERIES: I haven't mentioned this before, but I'm one half-drawing away from completing a six-picture miniseries of a new OC. Unfortunately, this drawing is the third entry in it, so you won't be seeing any of it here until it's all done. But trust me, you'll like it.
ASSORTED HITGIFTS AND STUFF: I haven't forgotten about you. I'm working on it.
Gahh, I'm tired of writing. Keep it real, y'all.
