Hey, I actually haven’t been doing nothing lately…I is been graduated. Nevertheless however, bad grammar and talking about my graduation isn’t why I’m posting here today.

I entered the “Gummy Dwarf” animation in the mytoon’s “Get with the Times!” contest and now I need you to go vote for me. The “Gummy Dwarf” is making a come back in widescreen HD (meaning four more trees), so go to http://mytoons.com/animation/play/16179 and vote. You can vote for my animation once every hour, so if you have an extra free second each hour…please go vote for me!

…and just in case your lazy like me, I figured out 4 easy steps to voting.

Hey everyone! I have a some of new things to talk about – some really good and some extremely bad.

First off, I’ll start out with the good news (good news is always better anyways).

I won the mytoons bumper blastoff contest. Did you hear me? I won the mytoons bumper blastoff contest. And Not only did I win the contest, but I was the “Super Rising Star Winner”!

The contest was setup with two different ways you could enter – Super Stars (for everyone) and Rising Stars (for people in school). Out of those, they chose three Super Star Winners and six Rising Star Winners. Out of those winners, they chose one Super Super Star Winner and one Super Rising Star Winner. I was the Super Rising Star Winner!

You can check out the contest page here and my winning bumper here.

….And onto the bad news.

My hard drive crashed on Monday. Which means I’ve lost just about EVERYTHING! Well, not everything, I at random backed up my flash files in January…So I’ve only lost the most recent stuff that I’ve done (the cooler stuff). I should have a new hard drive by next Monday so I can get back up and running and I will be able to try to save some of the data on my old hard drive. Hopefully not everything will be lost.

Whats makes this really sad is the timing. I have been planing on upgrading and building a new computer in the next couple of weeks….so if my old hard drive would have just waited to die until AFTER I had moved all my files to a new computer, I wouldn’t have cared if it died.

And, I just won the Mytoons Bumper Blastoff Contest. Being the “Super Rising Star” winner, I get my portfolio review by some really great animators…but guess where most of what I have that would be defined as a portfolio resides…yes, on the dead hard drive. Timing is everything…

I’ve got tons more ideas and things I want to work on, but with my hard drive being dead, those will all have to wait.

Until next time,

James

PS…sorry if this is a bit sloppy, I haven’t had the greatest week (except the part where I found out I won the contest) with being sick a bunch and my hard drive crashing…

This is a collection of of unfinished animations I started for the Bumper Blastoff Contest…most of them didn’t get finished either because I didn’t like the way they were turning out or I was too lazy 😛 (I also have this sickness called school, and that hindered me from finishing these too)…

Enjoy!

Hey, just thought I’d mention that both the Lord of the Things animation and the Abyss Run game were featured yesterday on the Mytoon’s “Famous Today”!

Sorry I’m a little late with this new, but I was incredibly busy yesterday…

Also, I originally didn’t plan on finishing any more bumpers for the mytoons contest, but I was inspired today and spent a ton of time working on one. All I have left is to polish it out a little and add some music/sound. Hopefully I will have enough time tomorrow to finish it…

Until next time,

James

Today I have two things for you:

  • Second, I finished this really dorky flash game called Abyss Run today. I actually made this flash game several years ago, but jsut finished a few things and added music today. Enjoy!
