I'm better off alone anyways

2014-09-26 18:26:59 by TheEB

After my collab failed miserably (my fault entirely) I decided to look at everything that had happened and figure out how to prevent a mistake like this from happening again. Obviously I was unorganised and slow and because of that everyone gave up on it. But normally I put more effort and care into projects like this, especially when I get so many people who are depending on me to keep things going.

Im just not motivated anymore. When I started animating I did it because I wanted attention and I wanted to impress others. It was easy to keep going because I had a massive ego and I thought I was great at what I was doing. Things have changed quite a bit since then.

I still enjoy animating, but not for the same reasons. I like to try new things and be artsy with my animations. I dont want people to look at one of my animation clips in some collab and see the same thing they just saw in the part before. I dont even want to be in collabs. I want to stand out and inspire people with my animations. I want people to be glad they took the time to watch them.

The thing is I've been creating all of these sprites and coming up with all of these ideas and never really tried taking action and finishing a project. I never really cared about releasing a project and getting a ton of fans (although I do appreciate the few I have) so whenever someone told me my idea wasn't good I would just give up on it. It wasn't a big deal to me.

The thing is it seems that because of my lack of activity on NG because I don't really show anyone anything I create people have started to think I can't animate. I have posted numerous pictures of guns I drew and people really seem to like them for whatever reason. I get people asking me to work with them all the time because they want me to draw guns for their video. But when I ask if they need any help with animation they sort of go silent and then give me some excuse like "theres enough people animating already". Sometimes they just tell me they can animate better than me and that I would probably ruin the whole video.

I'm not easily offended, but this is really starting to bug me. I know where I stand in terms of skill and I'm not the best, but I'm not that bad. Its really frustrating.

Im going to make an animation just to show you guys and to see for myself what I'm really capable of. I'm motivated now. I find I work really well when I'm pissed off.
