KidneyThief's News

Posted by KidneyThief - December 1st, 2013

To my great disdain I haven't done any real personal work in quite awhile and as such haven't done more than lurk here on NG in that time. The past year I've been focusing on my career and handling my post college finances. While tiring, my efforts have been far from fruitless and I have been doing a some commercial design work outside of my day job.
So while I have nothing of my own to show, I do have this shameless plug to my current posting grounds with my commercial stuff.

Shameless Portfolio Plug

So feel free to check that out, and leave some feedback, and hopefully I'll be back with something a little more interesting for you guys soon!

More Lurking and Shameless Plugs

Happy Robot Day!

It's coming.

Paper wheels fly too few in number in this summer breeze. The hot sun angers the tree people but the sky falls in thunderous heaps leaping clouds and pouring excess of fluid upon the soggy paper children What is this element but the bane of the unsheltered? Flee existence Embrace insanity as though it were an old friend from the bottomless depths of your street gutters. Even the timid rule those without passion.,

Just thought I would share that with everyone.

So all my animations so far have been done in Flash MX. Recently I upgraded, quite a bit, from MX to CS4! I am working on two projects, but the process has been rather gradual. The rain has finally let up after almost 3 weeks straight, so hopefully I will be able to get out more, and won't feel so lethargic... also, I would kill to change my username....

Edit: Huge thanks for the username change! I really appreciate it!

I finally figured out what I'm going to do. I don't know when it will be complete but I plan to be finished by the end of August at the very latest. This animation will not be another FBF submission. While still predominantly black and white it will include (behold!) color! So here is a little preview pic.

That aside I am still unemployed! Hooray!... not. However I recieved a suprise paycheck from my school for my position as a resident assistant which I will return to in August. I don't know why I recieved this paycheck, but I'm not complaining.

EDIT (approx. 4 hours later)
Mood: Irritated
So... after writing this post around 1 in the morning I decided to go to sleep considering I have a job interview this morning. Now despite the fact I went to bed at 1, I didn't fall asleep until 330. My alarm was set for 730, but I was woken up shortly after 6. Why? Because there was a squirrel in my room. Thats right. A F***ing squirrel. It chewed through my screen for a damn bag of chocolate..

New Animation Finally In Progress

Posted by KidneyThief - May 6th, 2009

So my Frosh year of college is coming to an end. Finals are here, and so is a huge lack of sleep. How I wrote a research paper and completed an entire antomy/figure drawing final in one night I have no F'n clue. Havn't slept much this week. Can't remember most of the week. Tonight should be the 4th and last all nighter. Then I shall return to animating. Hoping to land a job at Turbine Inc for two months, I will be rolling in money!.... or rather not because I will spend it all. CHEERS! %///..9-::K/

After much anticipation it is finnaly here! I'm pretty excited with my new animation. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it =D

Haha wow, Front page! One of my animation goals complete.

Posted by KidneyThief - January 26th, 2009

Working on another FBF like my last ones. Black and white as usual. This one will be bigger and better, I'm aiming for about 2 minutes this time. Heres a picture, enjoy.

Another FBF on the way
