So far, all I see is a realization that I'm getting old, inactive, outdated, and poor.
Well, not entirely poor, but definitely not as good my family used to in terms of dough.
And I will kill to stop the time. Like, srsly time, c'mooon. Don't be a kill joy and stop, would ya?


Instead of listing my progress, I decided to list down the projects I left hanging.



The list:
to give fans more reason to hunt me down
-An iOS game about artworks (all 60+ of them in HD)
7 Not So Deadly Sins by Mikeinel
-A music video featuring Megurine Luka and a young talented music artist
Lie :WIP: by Mikeinel
-The making of Katawa Shoujo animations
Hanako's Reflective Eye by Mikeinel
-OutT game port to Unity web player (instead of Flash, and with better controls)
OUTt :Browser Game: by Mikeinel

Naw, but really, the main reason I'm posting that list is to remind myself (and guilt-trip myself while I'm at it) of the things I left behind everytime I visit my page.

I really miss my old self when I used to scribble every single effing day.
Welp, can't be helped.



Looking at the bright side:

The OuO sequel is almost done. This one is a big, big, biiiig expansion compared to its predecessor, but sadly, it can only run on 3GS and above... (and will require a buck. That or jailbreak, rofl) I will make a lite version too, of course.
The original OuO is available on Appstore: itunes.apple.com/en/app/ouo/id…

And I got hired by a studio to work on a big-ass project. Hopefully it will solve my financial crap soon. I'm personally excited about this, been researching a lot ever since I got in. But that would also mean I will have lesser chance to work on the unfinished projects.
Oh well, priorities.



Welp, that's that. Advance Happy New Christmas Year!


Update:
Thank you everyone for the kind words. I'm really glad people understands.

I sympathize with your sentiments about feeling old and inactive. Given how much you have accomplished, though, I'm also tempted to swear angrily at you, because some of us actually *are* old and inactive. ;D

In all seriousness, though, congratulations on getting hired. These days it feels to me that any time an artist gets paid, it's something to celebrate. And you certainly deserve it, sir.

FWIW, I love the idea of seeing Luka in a video drawn by you!

Are you still working on the Draw With Me sequel/prequel? Are you going to do another Object-tan contest? Either way, hope your work at the studio is very helpful, and moreover, enjoyable--you don't "work" of course, if you enjoy what you do!

It's great that you've been able to increase your quality of work from things! No one judges you for not being able to finish those kind of projects. I'm in awe that you manage to complete anything!

I feel as if I'm the same way--not being able to finish things--but that makes you more relatable as an artist!

It;s so amazing that you've had the opportunity to be noticed and hired for doing art. (Even if doing it on your own terms is more fun than for work but eh what else would you want to work?)

Congrats!

it's fine, we're always waiting patiently for your projects.
Also, I sort of empathize with you on the whole "not drawing as much anymore" thing. Given the fact that I am not so old may be weird for me but it must not be for you.

Best of luck!

I don't know how old or poor you are, but i 'll just say you were an inspiration to me, still are, in the field of animation. I came to DA first, found you, and spend every single frickin day searching for ways to emulate your lowpolygon works quality. Ultimately failed. But still came back after all and be amazed here.

Perhaps it's just an artblock. Cheer up. Lotsof japanese directors live and create even as they grow old and weary... even the animators too.

I am really looking forward to your future works.
