What's Been Up

Hello, anyone who might actually read this!

I haven't logged on to this site in forever. That sucks, 'cause I love Newgrounds. The reason behind it is kinda silly, but I'll tell ya why anyway.

Probably a year or so ago, I had a thread in the art forums that had to do with my daily art. If I didn't keep posting in about three days or less, then I considered myself sucky or something (I don't remember what my consequence was). There was a period where I stopped posting for waaay too long, and I felt ashamed. Therefore, I made it my duty to never come back until I make really great progress in the fields I'm studying.

I still feel like this is helping me get over my procrastination troubles. I've been reading a book about it, and so far, I've been extrememly productive. A lot of the practice I'm doing is becoming a habit, which is super awesome. In all, I want to fully come back to Newgrounds eventually, but if I did it now, it'd probably remove some motivation. This website is pretty much my incentive to get better. I want to get involved in this community again, and I'm getting closer. I recently got a lot of other resources for music recording and whatnot, and I've also learned some new things here and there. I won't spoil much, but I have a lot to use now. I just need to improve a bit more. I'll be back someday! :)

What's New!

I haven't made a news post in a while (or posted any music), so here's one now.

I've been working on music for a while now, pretty much. Sadly, I have this really weird case of "Whoa! That sounds really good! Let's save it for the future!" sort of thing. I'm a person that always jots down great ideas that I come up with and predicts how I can use 'em. I'm not sure if this happens with many others. When I think some music would sound really awesome for something I wanna do in the future, I hold it off until then. I like this because it gives me some sort of list of ideas to choose from, but I also hate it because I'm not submitting anything new, for that matter. To overcome this, I'll find some time to work on and post some music, whether I think it'll work great in the future or not. I'd like to make an album someday too, where I compile new tracks and remake some old ones (yep, the ones I made when I was just starting out). I'd rather not let that small dream fly by! Expect to see some new music soon. :D

I created an art thread to keep me motivated and persistent in art practice, studies, and whatnot. Feel free to check it out, and leave some opionions/critiques if you like!

I submitted music to the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest! This helped me get back into the swing of completing music and stuff. You can check it out here.

Oh, and I'd like to be more active here. I'll probably get back into the swing of things gradually. I'd really like to spend a lot of time seeing what others are up to! There are bunch of artists, musicians, etc. that I'd like to catch up to what they're working on. ^-^

That's pretty much it for now. Thanks for reading!

Oh Noes!

Am I really too late to participate in the monthly voting?! Aw man! It was the first time I was even asked, too. I guess I'll hope I can vote next time.
