Now, as I'm sure you can see this is one of my few posts (if not the only one) that has no emoticon.
Well, here comes the shit storm of things you're going to read.
Let's start with the bad news.
After a recent incident (Which has caused me some serious trauma and injury) I've become a bit less motivated to do anything. That being said, my school grades dropped and I haven't done a lot of art stuff lately. Recently I have gotten them back up, things are starting to stabilize. But, this certain incident has a way of working itself back into my mind.
I have severe depression and emotional distress issues; Which I will be going to see a professional for help this week.
Now, I am hoping that this counciling doesn't delay any of my work, if it does I apologize. But I must make a few things clear first.
1- I won't be finishing my christmas cartoon.
With everything that has been going on the past few months after madness day, a lot of stuff has hit the shitter and I just don't have enough time anymore to fully work on it as much as I would like (Because I am also attending my senior year)
2- I am working on Madness: Affliction
This is a collaborative effort between Kelzad, Gibb50, TheEB, DarkSignal and I to bring you a tale about a son out for revenge after his father was murdered.
Kelzad, TheEB and Darksignal are working together on sprites, while Gibb50 and I handle the animation.
With all that is going on I'm not sure when this will be able to come out, and I don't remember if Kelzad planned this for madness day 2015. I don't think so.
3- I have a few shorts started and in mind.
While shorts may be, in fact, short they still take some time to make. If I worked solid hours on one I could make a nice one minute madness short in about a day. (Because of all my fucking BS detail adding to my cartoons).
"But Cethic, we want movies! Not shorts!" > To that, I say I don't give a shit. The fans that enjoy my work will continue to enjoy my shorts once they are out. Not to mention they are a good stress releiver for me.
Now, to the good news.
I am joining up in Shadman's "Design a Shadgirl" Contest.
This could be not only a chance to make some good money, and get some good publicity, but also a chance to have my work featured on one of my favorite artists websites, so wish me luck.
As far as everything else goes, I can tell you what to EXPECT from me at some point.
A short, involving Kelzad and my character "Cethic"
As well as a good 'ol fashion TF2 animation. (Also a short.)
As long as I keep myself at a stable, calmed, maintained level everything will be alright.
That's all. Just thought you guys should stay updated.
