Look Guys...

I have a big announcement to make...

When I first made my first appearance to the NewGrounds online Flash Portal, I was... just--wow...
I was 10 years-old and I just got Adobe Flash CS3. I was so excited to make and watch all of these cool animations and playing all of the fun games. So I rushed and rushed, making crappy little animations along the way. Every time somebody gave me an honest opinion of my work that I didn't like, I would just brush it off and keep rating myself a 5 out of 5 rating. I would sit there for hours on end uprating myself rather than face the truth... that NewGrounds isn't about spamming the portal with all of your "great" animations. It used to be all about posting as many animations as I could and hoping they didn't get blammed, and then re-submit them if they did. But that's not the point. The point is to make something you put work and effort into, that somebody will ACTUALLY enjoy. I was 10, and I didn't know that animations actually take lots of time and effort... especially to make a good one. But time went on. I am now 13 years old, almost 14 and I truly believe that my animating "skills" went WAY up. Definitely passed what they used to be. In fact, I didn't even know what tweens were back in the day! xD

But that doesn't mean I'm going to stay here... I have a whole ton more of waaay better animations, but I have joined other websites, and NewGrounds is still quite higher then my current level on animating. The point of this was to let everyone know that I'm not a 10 year-old idiot anymore and I have improved on my work greatly (drawings too!). As I won't be on NewGrounds for a while, I thought this was necessary to tell everybody. If anybody would like to see what I'm up to now go here http://Dracado.sheezyart.com/

(as an added bonus I made a new banner, user-image, and profile picture that aren't butt ugly. Not to mention I deleted all of my old, crappy excuses for "animations.")

This isn't a sob-story, I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm not going to be here for a while, and that I'm sorry. And hey! Maybe in a few years, you'll see me here again much improved! :D

~~Cheers, Dracado

More Newz

Okay, I've got stuff to explain.
For "T3h Random 2" chances are looking...not so good.
I've made all of my animations alone and on a mac WITHOUT a computer microphone.

Sound hard?? It is.
Not to mention school. I have like 2 tests this week and like 2 quizzes and 4 tests next week.

Squeezing animations in there is pretty hard.
A lot of people on Newgrounds hate me for my crap animations, and about the rest (about 10 people) let me know that the quality's not so good but the ideas / concept were great.

I'm trying to change that.

I basically just started flash and my drawings and animations have none of the same styles.

If any of you can give me some E-mails or IM's or something about improving my work I'd love it.

I'm only 13 so I don't have a car to take me to any courses or conventions so I have nobody to learn from.
[ E-Mail / IM me at custarddoughnut@yahoo.com. I use YIM ]

So basically, I need advice. Such as, where to get a good, cheap mike, how to improve my skills/drawings.

And also; I might do "T3h Random 2" if I can get some one to join me in making it, or if I can get a good microphone. Other than that no more news.

Please comment here to give help + suggestions. You can PM me here a NG if you'd like also. Or IM / E-mail me at custarddoughnut@yahoo.com.


T3h Random 2?

2008-10-19 11:57:27 by Dracado

A couple People have asked me about making a "T3h Random 2"

Well I've taken that into consideration and I accept!!

it may take a while though because I'm not really bored enough to make it yet lol.
But be expecting it in the near future! It'll be better. I promise =D

Have a spooky Halloween...

[ steal some candy for me eh? ]



2008-10-13 12:12:11 by Dracado

It's October!!!

School's harder...
Day's longer...
Halloween is coming!!!

I'm not really in the mood to make an animation right now, but if I procrastinate, school will definitely get in the way. Therefore, I'm making a Halloween flash anyways!! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I mean, who doesn't like to scare random people on the street just for the heck of it! So yeah I'm gonna make a Halloween short. Hence the word "SHORT" it probably won't be very long...so quit posting "I loved it but I'm giving you 2/10 and a 1/5 because it's too short." I can't tell you how many people do that!

But I'm just talking to myself again so,



It's Finished!!!

2008-09-25 07:39:49 by Dracado

I finished "Madness Interception!!!!"


Madness Day 08

2008-09-20 12:17:25 by Dracado

I'm making a new flash for Madness Day 08! I think the quality is about 40% better than any of my other animations lol (I'm Hoping) . It's no where near finished, but I'm hoping to spend hours and hours to finish it up before Monday. It probably will be done a couple days late maybeh but "Madness Interception" must be complete!!
