Hey there NG. Welp, I caved in.
Times are weird, and there's no room on the internet for pretentious long-winded productions on the internet unless the author's in high school and has nothing to worry about but better ways of being an ass-kissing wannabe gangster and a little job at Arby's. Since that phase has passed for me, I think it's time I let go of this thing I've been holding onto forever re-doing and trying to get right, and that is my schizophrenic series Necropolis (DevilSlayer, Nightgun, whatever you wanna call it).
I had aspirations to make something that would be on par with my favorite web series like XIN, Xombie and all those, but I've come to the realization that doing this by myself with no revenue and no help, it'll never be what I want it to be. Now suddenly I understand why Freetown and Story of Khale fizzled out.
Mainly, I've decided to cultivate my animation and storytelling skills separately, because together I feel like I haven't really accomplished shit. So, it while it was fun reading all the reviews about how I'm a talentless hack sniveling in Aaron McGruder's shadow, I'm closing the curtain. Bi bi Necropolis!
I'm actually 100% sure this is more significant for me than it is for you guys, but I figured I'd say something at least. :3
Here's to growing up! :P

Hey there Newgrounds, I just wanted to remind you that tomorrow is the return of our lord and savior Jesus Christ! Not that it matters for any of you horrible debaucherous sinners! :3
Breeders, marry your live-in girlfriends and faggots get back in the closet, THE END IS NIGH!

I've seen it happen to many of my favorite artists on this site. They make it to college or farther in college, and since their stuff didn't go viral and instantly present them with opportunities to make bank online, they disappear from Newgrounds and go tween for "modern" cartoons and kid's commercials forgetting their S.I.N.s, XINs, Xombies, Stories of Khale, CCCs and Apocolypse Pleases. I hate this, but I really truly feel it's coming on for me and I DON'T WANT IT.
I don't mind tweening for a paycheck, I'd much rather do that than cook fries, but as time goes on, the "logical" reasons for me to continue making Necropolis slowly start disappearing. I feel myself disappearing from this site that I haven't gone a day without visiting since I was 11.
I don't want to stop contributing to the indie toon world just because I'm becoming "financially independent", I still like NG WAAAAAAAAAY more than television, but I guess I had an unrealistic perception of how the entertainment world works; contrary to popular belief, it's very rare that people make a living off of their ideas/passion projects without compromising. But something needs to change before I fall off my pretentious indie high horse, fuck views and money, I just like being a cartoon whore for personal reasons.
I will figure out a way to get back on the corner >:(
Oh, and umm...penis. Ok I'm done being dramatic.

Hey there, NG. Thought I'd break up the self-induced monotony by actually updating on some of my latest misadventures.
It's been about 10 months since Synergy, and I'm afraid I'm not even close to finishing another Necropolis flick. Things have been oddly busy for me since I resumed school, so it'll probably be awhile before there's another. Hopefully by the end of the year. I haven't stopped practicing techniques and trying to improve my talky storytelling though, whatever the fuck happens, it'll be epic (at least in my own head). Many of the voice actors I started this whole project with have bailed on me, so I'll probably be holding auditions soon.
So currently, I'm working slowly but surely on a Pico Day toon, and I'll also be visiting NG headquarters for the puurty on April 30th, can't wait to see this years submissions. They better be violent or so help me >:(
Also, I'm considering starting a comic for the busy times, something nice and easy I won't have to cry and beg for cooperation with.
Keep ya posted <3
