2birds1stone reflection

alright, so i released my animation, 2birds1stone, a while ago, and i think i've finally come to a conclusion on where i went wrong with it.

the first, and most clear, conclusion would be that it needed more gore. i feel like that's what people expect from uncensored cartoons on the internet: insane amounts of violence, pornography, or insanely inappropriate cock jokes (sometimes all three). so i've decided that in the relatively near future, i should make a very graphic version of 2birds1stone that shows their gruesome deaths. maybe i'll include some more clever ways to kill them.

the second conclusion i came to was that i need to figure out how to get my timeline to work correctly when it's effected by actionscript. as some of you may have noticed, the music didn't repeat when the animation did. hopefully i'll have that figured out for next time.

the third thing, and this was more so a personal conclusion than something that people complained about, was backgrounds. i mean, people mentioned losing their attention because there wasn't much happening, but that was more so because of the timing than the lack of backgrounds. either way, all future animations should consist of fairly well drawn backgrounds.

and the fourth and final thing is voice acting. i feel like voice acting would be a lot of fun to do, especially getting my friends to do voices in animations. my next animation doesn't have much of a voice, more of a gasp really, but the one i plan to do after it should be entirely conversation. i look forward to recording the voices, but i'm sure animating the lip syncing will certainly suck. we'll see how it goes.

another thing that some people may not have realized, but the name "2birds1stone" was definitely a reference to 2girls1cup. hah, i thought it was funny.

hello, my name is Evan Armagast. you may know me as evanarmagast. i've been on newgrounds for a while, but i made this account because i prefer the idea of using my own name, and wanted to distance myself from the immature little shit i was. i'm here to draw. sometimes those drawings become animations. sometimes those animations become games. i don't know what exactly i'll have in the future, but i have plenty of ideas.

in this post, i actually plan on organizing a few of my ideas. hopefully this will result in me reminding myself that i have plenty of work to do, but also will let you know what to expect.

projects in the pipeline:
Big Dirty - a crime noir mouse avoider
Balloon Boy's Adventure - a tale of a boy and his dream of flying
Lion Eating Spider - exactly what it sounds like
2birds1stone - aka How to Kill Two Birds with One Stone: A Guide to Killing Fowl with Limited Resources
New World - this is the big one. this is going to be a made up universe that takes place in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world. it'll branch off into a LOT of different, smaller stories. this series is supposed to be very dark and gruesome. the art style is going to be a mix betwen crime noir and steampunk. so far, i have a story about serial killer, a story about robots, an entire story inspired by music, and a story about a government body trying to hide the fact that the nuclear war even happened.
Zombies! A Love Story - this is actually a huge game that i want to make. it's basically a game made from a survey of all of my friends plan for the zombie apocalypse.

so that's what i have "planned". nothing is garunteed, but everything is a dream.
