Since the beginning of this year, I've been reorganizing myself. I need to be productive. The past few years I have not been animating or even drawing as much as I would have liked to. I couldn't keep the promise I made to myself to be active and productive. It got to the point where I couldn't even bring myself to animate when others asked me to for collabs. So I apologize to those people, who I've let down. Especially those who I've let down on several small occasions (Hi Luis. Sorry.)
This whole year, to me, is about starting new. Starting on the right foot. Making a name for myself. Being where I want to be. In the past, Newgrounds has been amazing to me. I even got my first tablet from here. I was even lucky enough to be able to join, a now dead group of animators. The RWD. For someone who wasn't known very well in the Newgrounds community, I was given an amazing start. Now, I'm going to give back what Newgrounds has given to me. Awesomeness.
As a start, I'm moving away from this old Darkshadow8181 name. I plan to upload all my new cartoons under the name Fungasm ( http://fungasm.newgrounds.com/ ), to match my Deviantart name. I also plan to cross-post all my animation onto a new youtube account I have made, FungasmTube. ( http://www.youtube.com/fungasmtube ).
I really want to be active on Newgrounds again. I look back and see all the awesome collabs and flashes that inspired me when I just started out, and I regret not being more active in the community sooner. Newgrounds is an amazing place, and I want to help make it even better. The same way it made me even better, by giving me inspiration to even start animating in the first place.
tl;dr: I'm starting new and moving to the name Fungasm. All my old cartoons will stay on this Darkshadow8181 account. All new ones will be on the new Fungasm one.
also, here's a small facial expression loop for your amusement.
