Another "Animator" has joined! Empty Another "Animator" has joined!

on 11/20/2015, 4:15 am
15 year-old American male who does nothing but sit at his computer, go to school, eat and attempt at getting better at this enjoyable hobby called animating.
Like many I suppose, I grew up with the many flash games and the regular Kirby, Sonic and Mario stuff that was found on Newgrounds back during 2008~2012. I've attempted to pick up animation quite a few times until finally getting serious about it maybe 5 months ago. I first tried out ifureadthisdie's tutorial on the subject. Of course, the results were pretty terrifying to say the least. But in these last few months I've gotten better!

Found my way here a while ago to tell you the truth, though. Laziness has really prevented me from getting serious about what I've wanted to fill my time with. I've also checked out a site called Still-Framed back a year or so ago? I got pretty bummed out because I had JUST got there when the site was closing down. I'm working with MapleStory and Kirby sprites at the moment, and for now, I'm just working on getting the sprite sheets down. I probably won't be doing anything Sonic related until I've worked out an OC/FC that I feel comfortable with, or unless it's for a future team effort or pure boredom.

Anything else...? I don't really know what else to type here.
- Terrible at drawing. I have a very hard time even spriting. It just isn't one of my strong suits I suppose.
- Lazy. Of course, the work can get done on time. That isn't really a problem for me.
- Terrible with dialogue scenes. This factors back into the laziness thing. I just find in unexciting most of the time, which takes me longer to do.

And that should wrap it up! I would've probably been here a while ago, [I registered a month or two ago I think..] but my account just got activated today! I'm here to improve, so forgive me if I seem a little slow at times. Other than that, I hope to make the time with you guys awesome.Dance

You're welcome! : )

Actually I should apologize cuz I went and looked through some of the users settings and realized there were probably some inactivate accounts because for whatever reason we had it set such that Admins/Mods were responsible for activating accounts. And when I went to check, turns out we had like a little over 100 accounts that were inactive o.O

But they're all active now so hopefully they start showing up sometime soon.

Anywho, welcome to The Spritas, star!

I'm Rapidfir3Pho3nix and I'm one of the admins here.

Yeah, Eric (ifureadthisdie)'s tutorials are pretty bad but they're what we all started with here lol And yeah I am absolute shit at spriting like, good lord, I'd probably be better at it if I were blind. I can sometimes make edits and scratch something together but that's the best I can do.

I remember Still-Framed. I was really surprised when I found out about it shutting down; it was a pretty cool place to check out from time to time.

Well anyways, welcome to da site and hurry up and get animating so we can see your animations! : )

Damn, ifureadthisdie's tutorials back in the day were gold (especially for his comedy). Nowadays they're pretty dated though, there's much better tutorials around. I don't know if he ever made updated ones or not, but we've definitely got better ones in the Tutorial section.

Good to know! Thanks

Thanks! And sure thing! [Might be slow with this until the next year rolls around. I gotta get a new laptop that doesn't crash randomly as much as this one is doing. Makes it impossible to even play a simple game on Steam.]

To name a few... Cave Story+, Just Cause 2, Phantom Breaker, Left 4 Dead 2, Starbound and many others.
I tend to get a lot of games that you can play with others, but I tend to enjoy all kinds of games all around.

From my Steam library, Lethal League would have to be my favorite. Simple, with not much objective, but very fun.

Congrats! I've been meaning to try out Binding of Issac, but whenever I've actually gotten to refill my Steam wallet, another game I would've had my eye on at the time had this amazing sale. Like the last time, Borderlands 2 was only $5.

 I ended up having to return the game after maybe 30~40 minutes of play because for some reason, my laptop simply couldn't run it Sad

Damn I understand that.

Most of my games I either got from humble bundle or while it was on sale.

And yeah if you like Dungeon Crawling, Rougelikes, and/or Achievement Unlocking then yeah you should definitely get The Binding of Isaac. Make sure to get Rebirth tho cuz the original Binding of Isaac game was made very poorly and in Flash so yea
