to sprite, or not to sprite? that is the question
I just released what is probably the best cartoon Ive ever done, not because its long or as funny, but because I had never made an animation i truly had put my feelings in. I hope you guys like it. It is my sweet goodbye to sprites.
I had never put so much effort into a solo flash.
Im also working on a super zelda collab! go join guys, we need more recruits
here is another screenshot of my link´s design.
bai bai! I have lotsa good stuff coming your way!
also I noticed that in firefox my user image hasnt been updated :/

Hey. hows it going everybody umm.
Im here at my house... watching vids on Ng. I entered school past monday.
Well I simply wanted to make this post to explain people some weird stuff related to me that happened recently on this site I wIll present it as a FAQ.
First of all:
IS IT TRUE YOU HAVE A HENTAI OF YOUR OWN?
yes. YEs. stop PMing me about it >: (
here is a link. The people involved are very talented, so naturally im really offended. there will be a sequel. I hope this time they type my username correctly and win another "worse of the week" trophy.
WHERE DID ALL YOUR SPRITE A DAYS GO
as most of you noticed I am no longer co-authored in the past sprite a day episodes I once was part of. And I even have one less trophy now.
The reason for this is because I decided to remove meatwadsprite from my contacts permanently. I knew that by doing this, I would lose my connection with the sprite a day series and the trophys that I won with it. I simply removed my co-author with them because I realized that the series was just a pile of rubbish. When I started spriting, I didnt want to produce that sort of "quality-forgotten" animations, I didnt know all the other guys were producing all the "BSBSBSB great job" shit and... well... you know what I mean.
To all the ex-members of sprite a day: I recomend you to do the same. simply REJECT those dirty trophyes. Its hard, but you will feel better with yourself at the end. Leave those dirty, undeserved trophyes to meatwadsprite and yoshi77777777777777777777777
DIDNT YOU SAY YOU WANTED TO QUIT SPRITES BEFORE?
I did once. as a matter of fact. after skittles n dickz I made a post about it.
I think I sorta acted like a hypocrite joining sprite a day : (
However, I already had 2 invitations to sprite collabs long before Snd came out. The SPRITE TV 3 collab, and the animax team one. Now I MADE stuff for the TV one but I already had some couple of clips in my computer, and I decided to send them into the animax team collab 1.
wich takes me to the next important matter
DID YOU LEAVE ANIMAX TEAM?
yes. That team was pretty disorganized and most members had absolutelly no "vision" or aesthetic sense. sorry guys. I believe its better to just rip off the band-aid right away.
ARE YOU MAKING OTHER Non-sprite STUFF?
good you asked! : 3 well I am currently making 3 non-sprite shorts. its nice trying new stuff. but I have to say Im sorta in the "animator limbo" as Oney here would say. After showing my stuff to some of my friends I decided I should make a compilation with some of them. But Im really uninsprited nao.... I cant make any flash now really. no sprite, not normal. no satire. Im really uninspired. it sucks : (
if you feel like watching a REALLY SHORT clip of mine thats spriteless check out the animax collab again, (there are sprite shorts by me too, but they are not that good).
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT SPRITE ANIMATION?
this is a point I want to touch with delicacy. I know how the common artists of newgrounds see sprite animations. And I have to say this.
The flashes that I have done until this day, I made them for FUN, and because I wanted to put some of my Retarded videogame jokes into the internet. But I perfectly Understand the discrepancy between the Ng members. I knew from the beginning that sprites had no real artistic value, because the graphics part is covered. I understand that. Also, I didnt know the sprite buisness was to overrun when I started... I sorta tought I was one of the few who wanted to do that.
But my mind has been troubled lately about this, mainly because of all the damage sprite a day caused to the "decent" sprite animators, (please dont be so mean with me, let me explain myself a bit and then have your way with me)
I mean...SPRITE A DAY proved that THE SPRITE, dirty and efortless... beated down the poor, hard working artist to death.
What Im trying to say is this..... if you are making a sprite movie....
A) make it for fun, not for trophies and views, AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DONT VOTE 0 ON EVERYBODY ELSE, LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE IF YOU SUCK OR NOT >: 8 this goes for most of the ex-sprite a day members.
B)DONT STEAL SOUNDS FROM AUSTIN POWERS AND FAMILY GUY N SHIT.
C) Please... AT LEAST be sure your quality is somewhat good. ask someone BETTER to help you.
D) Making sprite movies is cool. IF YOU ARE LEARING FLASH, but I believe you will always ask yourself for more, and you cant stick to sprites forever if you want to be respected amongst the rest of the Ng users and artists.
E) ANIMATED GIFS ARE FOR LOSERS
F) and the most important one, Dont be an ass... HOLE, if someone tells you in a review that you basically suck or whatever, but like... sugar coating, being decent and stuff , dont go isulting him/her because he didnt like your movie, Let peope speak their minds. Accept constructive criticism. OH, i think I owe an apology to SaltyPeach, I once insulted him for making this, and I still feel bad for doing so. If youre there man, please accept this idiots apology.... friends? < : )
and now, a final point I want to sort out.
WILL YOU MAKE A SPRITE COLLAB WITH ME : 3 ?
STFU NO0B. from now on, Im only making sprite collabs with who I consider,are the "decent" sprite animators around.... I dont want to go sprite a day over again.
No, seriosuly, please dont invite me to sprite collabs.
OH MY GOD WATCH THIS
Additionally, here is a fat dude I drew. I know I draw a lot of them, LEAVE ME ALONE!
