There are two main aspects of any form of entertainment whether its a movie, book, game, or work of art. Quality and content. You guys all seem to be focusing on quality. Working on making animations smoother or better looking as you learn. Thats great. But the thing about most madness animators is that you can't seem to grasp the fact that content is more important. Just look at how popular the old eddsworld cartoons are. The really old ones were very poorly animated but still quite popular because they were funny and entertaining and every animation had something new to it that made it different from the last one. Edd didnt animate the same thing over and over.

I've noticed that its becoming really painful to watch some of the more recent collabs because all of the parts are the same. People just walking and shooting your generic bad guy at low speed. Some people even submit tests to collabs. Nobody wants to take a break from the action to watch people punch at the air or reload a handgun. Thats not entertaining at all. When you enter a collab think of it as your chance to show what's interesting and unique about your animation. Make your part stand out as the funniest or the most epic instead creating a high quality cliche.

Another problem is people try so hard to be like krinkels and then wonder why madness animations all look the same. STOP TRYING TO BE KRINKELS!!!! Do your own thing. Think for yourself for once. Its really not that hard. Look at people like Gabriel Barsch. He has more fans than DIMB and Delamortes together because even though he may not be quite as good at animating as them he brings something new to all of his animations and tries to keep them original. He uses krinkels sprites but instead of taking his ideas he builds off of them.

A ton of madness animators are leaving newgrounds because madness is getting unoriginal and boring. Its almost like people don't realise you can control what you animate. If you animation comes out boring and unoriginal it's not because its madness. Its your fault. Put some thought into your animation. If anything try to come up with a cool style or interesting fight choreography.

I want everyone to realize that there is no way to stay "true to madness" (when people say stuff like that to me it makes me sick). Just because krinkels hasn't animated something doesn't mean you're not allowed to. Do your own thing. Come up with your own ideas. Make your animations stand out.

And for the love of god just because you can't draw doesn't mean you have to decompile MY sprites.
