ive been on newgrounds for ages and since the age of about 11, i wanted to make cartoons. i did so on aniboom shapeshifter. but it was good enough for me back then. i have discovered you can make flash cartoons a couple of years back in school.

On the offchance that someone will read this post, I have some stuff to explain. Not to you reading this as much but for me to know somepoint into the future if I come across this crappy post but if you want to read this post, you might as well keep reading it if you want to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I started my account on newgrounds hoping I can make some cartoons so I could follow my 7 year old dream of becoming a well known animator and I only submitted one cartoon. That cartoon I so dearly hate because I thought of submitting it as a cartoon test type thing when I only had 2 days to work on it in the springtime earlier this year of 2013 and since then, I have shown friends around newgrounds some "cartoons" I put onto my newgrounds dumping grounds which I have a screenshot of here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/19cdac194f3fb62966d44d0c82b2b28d

The point I'm trying to make here is that I make such rubbish junk without realising it's even rubbish compared to anything else submitted here on newgrounds and lately I have submitted more artwork I made since late october and it's fun because I sort of know they have potential to be shown into the art portal. These drawings usually take me around 20-30 minutes to make but with animations, it takes lots of people here weeks and months to produce something great which is nothing but trouble for me as I'm currently at college and due to unemployment rates in britain, it's the law for me to have at least one year in further education for free.

Here's where it gets complicated. Oh boy.

I have to retake GCSE english in order to stay on an art course. art for 2 years and english for just one year. if i was to fuck up in english then bye to college which is alright by me in a way as I can spend more time learning to make cartoons for a living but if i get the english course done and complete by spring and have another year in art, then i could get my qualifications and move into university which financially, doesn't sound as great to me as I don't think I will gain thousands of pounds per month to repay loans or stuff like that if I just want to make cartoons for life so I could go either way I guess.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Now that I bored the shit out of you, let me take the time to say there will be a platform game partially made by me and this guy who i've known on newgrounds since summer who goes by the name of GhostDataForgers on newgrounds and that will be online this month and I am working on a cartoon for christmas but Im afraid to say that it won't be animated by me but someone else with voice actors because theres liek only 3 weeks till christmas but i have half of the story done already so thats good.

I have stories which I could offer to other people on newgrounds if they want to animate like me who actually have the time on their hands to do.

I have the series of "Laura"

The "zombie" series which I had in mind for around a whole year now

I think thats about it so if you want these ideas or know someone who would want them, please PM me or leave a comment below to see some special arrangements or something other like that and I hope you haven't died of complete boredom whilst reading this. Thanks.

Hello there.
Unlike a lot of people on NG, I don't find myself bored with walls of text, unless that wall consists of gibberish or jargon (funny, because I'm on a course that involves programming, which literally seems like jargon to me right now.)

I don't think you should make movies and art solely for the sake of Newgrounds. Yes, there is mad creativity and talent here on this site, but a piece of art or an animation is going to turn out much better if YOU are happy with it. Like when I submitted my 1st piece of art here, I kept worrying about 'Oh, but will it be good enough for NG?', and since I was drawing it for a musician favourite on here, I worried whether she would like it also. So it was done in a rushed, unrelaxed way.
I haven't done much since, and I'm still a beginner at drawing, but whenever I practice drawing I try and immerse myself in it more, instead of thinking of the reactions of others.

I think it's great that you're doing an art course. I wish nowadays that I paid more attention in Art class back in secondary school, because it's suddenly become something that I want to improve on and be creative with.

I did some Flash back in college, although it was on a very basic level. Animation is rather fun, but I haven't done it in months.
I think you'll walk over GCSE English, personally. If you can write loads, then it's in the bag. At least, that's what I did in one of the exam papers.

I can't really say much on the subject of your university education and your financing methods. I myself had to get a loan from Student Finance, but university life will be cheaper for me since I'm living at home and accommodation costs are nonexistent.

Good luck with the platform game, I look forward to it. University is worth going to: I am in the first term of my first year, and although some of the information is a little overwhelming, I am really enjoying it and I reckon that I'm going to pick up a lot of skills here.

Anyway, take care, don't worry about English (you'll pass with flying colours), and I'll be sure to check out your movies and art. :)

wow thanks. your review helped me alot with thinking stuff through and it helps so much when theirs more people on newgrounds who have been through the same problems as me like you, its very inspirational. ill try my best at college and maybe go to university but one thing im not gonna give up with is making the best cartoons i can make so thanks alot. i never thought someone would read this post until today even though i made it a day ago so thanks a lot

No problem, man. You'll go far, I'm sure of it. :D

Things that you make, and draw. Are not rubbish!!!! Everyone has different style.And each style is beautiful in its own way, so just do what you love and like.That's when the best work usually comes out. Good luck on English, and kick its butt!!!!! (^_^) And don't worry about what other people think.

yeah probably but its quite hard though lol
