LittleLuckyLink's News

Posted by LittleLuckyLink - July 25th, 2017


Hello hello. This is probably the 500th time that I've gone several months without posting anything. About a year ago I was hyping everyone up for a 2017 release of Dusk of the Madness Overtime. With further issues surrounding the old computer that the file is stored on as well as life and its fistful of turmoil, I have only worked on it on a few occassions. That being said, I unfortunately don't see a 2017 release happening. It is NOT cancelled though. I can't stress that enough. It's just delayed as fuck. 

Between a full time job and painting, I couldn't see myself finishing it unless I dedicated every second of my days that weren't working to animating. 

I recently got out of a very parasitic and toxic relationship/living situation. I'm still in Colorado living happily and quietly with my cats. It's a bit of a financial stretch but it's doable. I've been able to focus on artwork and expression like never before. I've got several really huge painting projects going on at this moment, and I'm excited to share them in the coming months.

One of my more recent pieces, Truth Patrol, was recenly front paged! I'm very thankful and delighted to have something of mine featured on the front page once more. 

Anyway, I'll have more updates surrounding Overtime and artwork once things settle down just a tiny bit more. 

Y'all have a good'n ya hear now

Hey there! Sorry I missed last week's weekly Overtime screenshot, I try to upload them during the weekends but in my current state without internet, that's a little difficult and I've been busy all week otherwise. So here are two screenshots!

I also uploaded a new painting today, titled For the Land, check it out!

I've been sucked into the strains of working weeks upon weeks of overtime. I'm not talking about that long-paused fourth animation I still have intents on finishing one day, I'm talking about my regular-jack-off job. 

While I don't animate as much as I'd like to these days (as in at all,) I have been steadily putting out some new artwork. As a result, I've been making out of state trips to Arkansas-based art and music festivals known as Flux Festivals hosted in part by none other than NG's very own FatKidWitAJetPak! In fact, in just a little over a week from now, I'll be making the trip again to attend Cosmic Flux. Anyone in the Arkansas area should check it out! 

I really owe it to Nick (FKWAJP) for helping me realize my potential by welcoming me into the Flux Family. It really is a wonderful experience, a paradise if I do say so. It's a personal goal to be self-sustaining with my art, at least to a degree in which I can phase the days upon days spent not painting as a result of either working or attempting to recuperate myself from the stresses of such a strain. 

If I can somehow fucking pull this off you can guarantee Overtime and many more animations will follow. To whoever out there is still curious about it, (I know there are quite a few out there,) please just know that I have not forgotten about it, and I absolutely do not intend to let it die. It's too fucking cool of an animation already and there is so much more I want to put into it.

I shall be participating in Chrono Flux, an art festival centered in Little Rock, Arkansas on January 3rd!

This will be the first time I've participated in an art festival, so I'm pretty damn excited. I'm pretty thankful and excited to have such an incredible opportunity like this. I seriously can't wait. Check out the Chrono Flux page for more info!

My brother helped me out a shitton by sending me a new computer and phone. Both of those things just happened to start withering and decaying at exactly the same time interestingly enough. I've been offline mostly for these past few weeks but I've been painting a shitton and just dumped some of the art here on NG.

I'll be posting it gradually to other questionable social media sites (I've got my eye on you, Facebook) but I'll always keep a tradition of having it up here first regardless of the fact that, in all honesty, they're getting more views and gaining me more followers elsewhere. 

Newgrounds has always been a special part in laying the foundation for my general inspiration and dabbles with various arts, as I've been a frequent visitor for over ten years now.

 

I'm still breaking this new computer in but it looks like it's a pretty good system and I might be able to branch out and revisit certain things. 

 

Meanwhile hey look http://littleluckylink.newgrounds.com/art/

I've been pretty goddamn fucking busy to start off with. Lately I've been focusing my energy towards controlling the chaos. I think I've got a pretty good idea of how to do this, and I'm thoroughly looking forward to the next few months. I intend on being more active online as well. I'd really like to get Overtime out as soon as possible but I might just need to get ahold of a new computer in order to do that. This one's pretty decent, but technology really takes huge leaps forward in such short amounts of time.

Anyway, all I'll say right now, is expect more from me. That means everything.

Meanwhile, check out my entry to Rammstein's 20th Anniversary design contest! Click the heart icon if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I'm hoping to be able to view this as a new beginning. I have held back from this post for a few weeks. It's all good news now, I have a home. A huge apartment with two great roommates. It's a nice place. Things are still coming together but we're almost done. We just got the internet set up today actually. I'm not entirely sure how these next few months are gonna go, but I'm thinking of giving myself a unique goal, a promise started in 2012, but unfinished to this day. Regardless of whether or not anyone is still interested in it after all these years, it's a really good flash and I have to share it. In fact, I want to get back into flash entirely. I am hoping to do that, but I'm trying to settle down just a bit more. Over these next few months, I'll be preparing my savings and funds to take classes in glassblowing.

At this very moment, I am still in setup mode. At this point I'm mostly just arranging my room and organizing. Decoration is something that will come over time but is still important to me as I enjoy having a stimulating and inspiring environment. Onward, I'd like to take a moment to wish thanks to all who have helped me through these past eight and a half months. For the record, I still have not talked to my mother at all, and as each day comes and goes that I do not, I feel myself just a little bit fuller on the inside. A lot of shit has happened and my life has gone through quite a few changes, but I am satisfied overall.

I think after this final week of setup, I'll take a moment just to fucking rest. I'll come home, get back into gaming, watching movies, then soon enough onto more productive things such as furthering my art and picking Flash back up. I am definitely not done making flash movies.

But yeah, home sweet home. My roommates are awesome, respectful, and half basically the exact same ideas for how to run a home as I do. I have three hermit crabs and a beautiful ball python that I adopted from a great friend of mine. I live in a two story townhome-style apartment, second and third floor. My bedroom on the third floor has the most astonishing view of the eastern horizon.

I shall depart on that note, stay tuned, my fellow droogs.

My painting Nihilismus Orcinus, created for Serj Tankian's (widely known for being the lead singer of System of a Down) Orca Symphony art contest won second place! The prize being a pair of fancy UE 600 Headphones (worth $120!) and a signed CD copy of his Orca Symphony! But the real prize was being recognized by such a talented man, and reading what he had to say about my entry;

"This piece makes me think of the starry night and the accompanying poem makes it a powerful multi-sensory artwork."

Hello. I've kinda neglected posting here mainly because I'm trying to avoid answering that one question I frequently receive in comments, reviews, and private messages. That question being "When is Overtime coming out?"

Honestly at this point I really can't say. No, I haven't been working on it, nor even really touched it for months. That was a bad mistake on my part. That movie is pretty huge and extensive, and it's been quite some time since I've been mentally capable of creating a satisfying animation. I'd have to re-read all of my old scripts, scene descriptions, and take a look back at all the concept art as well as the main influences and inspiration for the movie to properly reconfigure myself to take on such a challenge. But some skepticism comes even with that. While I am finished with a good chunk of the movie, some pretty heavy scenes toward the end of the movie that I have planned out might end up taking a bit of a toll on my computer. Many things need to happen for that to start coming again.

I realize it's been a year since I've worked on it. Here we are in summer again. But this isn't exactly my typical summer. For one thing, I've graduated from high school. But otherwise, well, I won't go into detail, but let's just say an urgency for me to drown myself in work has suddenly come up. It's not my choice, nor is it even really urgent since financially the household is doing pretty well. Certain people don't take my interest in pursuing a career in art too seriously. I don't know, I kinda figured maybe I'd get a part-time job I'm happy with for now, sort out college shit, and perhaps at the end of the day still have time to be able to cool off and do a bit of art? I mean, there's no urgency for me to get a job, we're not starving, we're not dying. We have it pretty well off, and despite the opinions of certain people, I'm not wasting such a privilege by simply "laying around the house doing nothing." I do realize many people have it worse off than I do. I'm not a wasteful person at all, especially when it comes to time. These are such things I feel as though I shouldn't have to explain to people who should know me. Anyway it's basically come down to immersing myself in some random shitty job or, eventually, ending up homeless.

You'd think the mistakes and the missed opportunities one experienced in their lifetime would serve as a constructive learning experience with knowledge gained to save someone else from such ultimate fates, rather than serve as a fucking template to fuck them and their dreams over.

Well, there's me ranting.

Anyway, as usual, I keep painting. I recently sold one of my paintings, entered one into a contest (we'll see how that one goes) and one was featured in Jazza's Art Showcase.
