Heya. Between trying out Blender 2.8, watching a thought-provoking video about self-improvement from JaidenAnimations, and now that whole Tumblr thing going on with Newgrounds looking like it could be the place to be, I'm making an account here. I first watched Oney and Egoraptor cartoons on YouTube and later really grew to respect all the effort that people put into their art here when I started listening to SleepyCast. I honestly never visited Newgrounds, I was far too straightedge to do more than watch a swearing cartoon once in a blue moon, and my "artistic" output was just on Youtube. While I am proud of that, it was all so derivative. Ancient memes, references and covers, trying to appeal to a niche yet mass audience. For the longest time I've been trying to push myself to make more original stuff, and I'm kind of at a place where I can do that now.
