Wow. It's been a long time since I've been on Newgrounds. Alot has changed it looks like. But change is always for the better!
I apologize to everyone that a new version of SDR hasn't come out. As graduation time came closer and closer in college, I seemed to have less and less time. I ended up switching my major in 2008 to Film, since the animation department wasn't teaching how I think they should have.
But I'd like to pick up flash again and delve back into it, since I've definitely gotten better with drawing. Who knows, maybe something will pop up in the future!
Hey all! Hope your sprite animations are going well.
In reguards to my tutorial SDR, I have listed you can PM with any problems.
If I may be so kind to ask however, please do not send me any more messages asking me where to get sprite sheets. A quick google search or whatever engine you prefer to use will get you pretty much whatever you need, be it sprites or backgrounds or sounds or anything.
Also for those of you having trouble with faulty or jpeg'd sheets, open the picture in Fireworks or Photoshop and use the Magic Wand tool to remove the excess. Easiest way to do it!
Thank you though for all your support and keep your questions coming if you need help. Once I get alot of free time and more flash experiance here in college, I will be making a major overhaul to SDR like I promised, one that'll cover all the bases and hopefully will answer all questions right off the bat. Plus it will look more 8-bit and just plain cool.
I must say the Newgrounds team has definately outdone themselves. The updates are pretty BA, I won't lie. Keep up the good work!
In other news things couldn't be going any better, animation wise.
For those who don't know, I'm currently going to college with my major in Animation. This last semester has been the most difficult yet most fun. The only bad thing about taking Animation in college is the almighty deadline teachers set on projects. It struck me funny that the project I got the best grade in was the one I started/finished the day after springbreak. If you'd like to watch it, check out Sombre Robo here on Newgrounds.
I'm really excited this semester since I get to put my porfolio together for admittance into the main program. Hopefully my other projects are good enough to catch the eyes of the program heads. Wish me luck on that.
As far as projects on here go, I plan *sometime* to update Sprites: Done Right which will include a better intro and also a title screen from which you can select different frames of the tutorial you wish to look at. I might throw in some different music and most definately add in a bit more information since alot of sprite newbies would love to hear about how to work with backgrounds. Don't worry guys (and girls), I have you covered!
Also eventually I'd like to go back and redo my Peanut Butter Bears flash and make it more "commercially" and all that jazz. I get all these cool visions in my head, almost dream in flash, but it just takes so much time to create quality works of entertainment...
I just have to make it through a semester of media classes and I think I'll be alright. Atleast fraternity stuff is picking up. I make T-shirts for the guys so I have a bunch of designs waiting for them when meetings start back up!
That's about it really. I don't want to whore up too much of your time. Go watch something.
