Oh, you saw that?

2012-01-08 01:21:26 by GuitarKirby

Thanks for dropping by my page from my most recent animation. I'd advertise for it, but you obviously used it to get here. Instead, I'll advertise my DeviantArt (here), and enjoy my awesome artwork.

For those of you that favorited me, I just saw you today. Thanks, guys, I hardly deserve it. This next little bit is aimed at you.
I worked on this for about three months, total. It took longer than that to come out because I got bored with it, and suffered from animator's block. I've also had a slight bout of depression recently, which seems to spur me into animating after I escape it. I've also been writing, and my finals started this week. I wanted to manage to get this out before finals completely take over my life. I mentioned some projects before this, scratch pretty much all of them. I might do little things once in a while, but I want to get into voice acting and finish writing my book. Keep up to date from my DevArt, since I hang out there more than anywhere except here, and I update it more often. My skill in drawing is superior to my animating skill anyway. Have a nice day, folks.


YEP I'm lazy.

So yeah, completely been ignoring animating for a while. Even though SvMK P3 is 90% done, I've been having trouble opening my copy of Flash for some reason. Probably because I haven't opened it in like two months. That's due to the fact that I've been mostly writing a novel lately. Enough of that, though. I'll finish it after I turn in my Driver's Education Final in a few minutes.



Well, looks like SOPA failed on the first go-round. On to the Senate, where we'll hopefully kick butt again. Internet forever, man.


Go to my DevArt.

You shall be pleased.
Now.


IT CAME TO ME IN A DREAM.

2011-09-28 14:18:10 by GuitarKirby

No, I'm serious. At about 5:00 this morning, I woke up from the most incredible dream I've ever had. I don't know who or what, but something out there wants me to be an animator. This is a dream I can't explain in words, only in visuals. And the only way I can do that is to animate it. This will be a frame-by-frame, drawing everything that happens-style animation. I big leap for me, but I'm going to do it.

To be honest, I feel like I don't deserve this dream. It should have gone to somebody who can already animate really well, or someone who's already doing their own artwork, rather than using sprites. But I have to share this, and since I can't put it in words, I'm putting it in visuals. What does that mean to Newgrounds, though? Well, after SvMK Part 3 is finished and out, I'm going to ask for voice actors. It's necessary. More on that in the Forums at a later point.

It's been my dream to become an animator for the past few years. I think this is what will make me truly start to fulfill that dream.


Progress Report

2011-09-26 21:42:43 by GuitarKirby

I know nobody's reading this, I just felt like typing;
SvMK Part 3 is now, officially, the longest animation I've ever done, coming in so far at around 50 seconds. It's not done, not hardly, but it's quite nice overall.
As for my regular "life," I have a D in Geometry, which sucks, but at least it's something. My birthday is coming up, and I'm going to Six Flags Marine World (I still call it that, yes) with my girlfriend. With any luck, I'll also be getting a 3DS. Have an enjoyable day.


Removed.

Took away my stupid logo flash, as it was dragging my batting average into the dirt, and it doesn't belong on NG anyway.


Hey, holy crap, a post!

2011-09-15 01:56:03 by GuitarKirby

So, for those who care, -COUGHCOUGHNOBODYCOUGH-
- Sonic VS Meta-Knight P3 is making real progress, and looks all fancy now.
- School has begun again, and it actually gives me more animating time, since I'm not getting invited to parties, and my school is online.
- Looking for colleges -gulp-.
- I have joined The Spritas, anyone who animates sprites should hop on down there today.
- I have also joined the lovely group creating Cameo!, a new RPG game. I'm currently developing Meta-Knight.
Have a good rest of your day/evening ignoring me.


Site Redesign, huh?

2011-05-05 18:01:13 by GuitarKirby

Read about the new site redesign, seems like it'll be a bit more new-user friendly. Still, I'mma miss the classic NG. Gotta move on eventually though. Let's hope things look nice!



So, I am now on the final day of my spring break, all of which was spent playing catch up on school. I DID get about ten minutes to play Spiral Knights, which I think all of you should go play right now. Because it's awesome. Kinda reminds me of the gameboy zelda stuff (overhead view).

In other news, SvMK P3 has been on hold for the last month or so. I've worked on only about ten frames, and I'm feeling somewhat beat down on that front. I'm starting to run out of creative ideas, and I don't like using fighting styles from other artists.

As for my other projects that were previously secret, I'm finally going to divulge three categories; What will be 98% likely to happen, what will be seventy-something% likely to happen, and what is almost guaranteed not to happen.

98% and over: Kirby's Dream Adventures (series): This is something that I've been wanting to do for some time. Kirby was my favorite character as a kid, and I just can't wait to try this out. I have ideas flying around my head, but I'm not sure what I'll use yet. All I know is that this is definitely happening.
Videogame Fallout (movie trailer parody/series?): Not even sure what this is going to be yet. I originally thought about making fun of the grand scale of Hollywood effectmovie trailers, but now I'm leaning toward creating a serious little series. This is a confusing one, because I know what the plot would be, but if it turned into a series, I don't know if I could work on something that long. So, this will almost certainly happen, but I'm not sure in what format yet. We'll see.

7something%: Triforce Unleashed: I threw around ideas for a Zelda based thing a couple of times, but I never settled on something I really wanted to do. I think this series would be the story of how Link became connected with the Triforce, but I'm not sure I want to make it. There's already so much Zelda-based stuff out there, and I think it's too easy to rip someone else off without realizing you're doing so.
Kirby Tourney: Another idea I toyed with. From the name, I think it's obvious that it's a tourney with Kirby characters, all of them fighting to be the victor. But again, this kind of thing has all been done before. Bleh.
Starfox Something: What a screwed up thing this is. Starfox is another of my favorite games, but it's something that's hard as all hell to do. I always worry when I start thinking about this about "well crap that's going to alienate every fan there is," etc. etc. Point is, it's just not an easy thing to do. Still, I've had ideas I liked, so I'm not going to toss this one into the circular file just yet.

Virtually not happening: ANYTHING MARIO RELATED. Not kidding. There's so much goddamn Mario crap that I don't feel bad not putting anything from his games on my list of todo. Next please.
Games: I don't program well enough yet. I might look back at this after high school, but I don't really want to go near this until after college. I'm just not talented enough.
Custom Character Stuff: Well, this one my friends have wondered at, since my name is GuitarKirby, which is, in technicality, a custom character. HOWEVER. If you look at it my way, it's just a power for Kirby that hasn't been invented by Nintendo yet. So, outside of Kirby powers, I think I can say that this is a big, fat, N-O.

Now, if you'd like to keep reading, I'll give you some of my ideas about my first mentioned guaranteed work.
Kirby's Dream Adventures is essentially what happened between the games Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland (for NES buffs, that's Kirby's Adventure. I'm just using the GBA title) and Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. Kirby has defeated Nightmare, and is in a relaxed point of his life. However, before he can truly take a vacation from protecting the world, disaster strikes: Meta Knight is possessed by something strange, which also begins to haunt DeDeDe. With MK as the main villain and DeDeDe as the helper, I feel it would be a nice change of role and make for an interesting story. Of course, DeDeDe maintains control over everything, so he sends minions after Kirby, who fights through all of them to reach the Dream Fountain where they reign from. No spoilers further than that, but I hope people like the ideas!

Finally, I have a favor to ask everyone. I want to hear about some sweet sprite battles, so I can glean some inspiration for the final, climactic episode of Sonic VS Meta Knight! Comment, PM, send me anything you can as far as that is concerned. Thank you for your time, here's a picture of a Kirby candy.

Well, it seems I have time to make a post. What a concept.
