From the 7th through today (the 13th) I was in New Orleans for a Mardi Gras-related family vacation, and as a result I haven't worked on anything art related after finishing Mario Meets Patrick Star. I intend to resume work presently on my unfinished project that was supposed to be finished for Halloween.
Mario Meets Patrick Star is my first Flash submission to Newgrounds that actually got a daily place and on the front page since Saunich der Hejhaug back in 2009. The lesson is, of course, that people want quickly made, inconsequential videos in which recognizable characters do stupid, out-of-character things. I didn't really need to confirm this, especially after having been WalrusGuy for so long, but still, there it is. When I finish the long overdue Enthalpy Halloween thing I don't expect it to receive nearly the same level of attention or accolade as Mario Meets Patrick Star, and I accept this.
The smartest thing for me to do from the perspective of getting myself into some kind of sustainability would be to churn out parodies as quickly as possible and reap in ad money from Newgrounds, but I really don't want to be that guy. Still, I definitely need to regroup in some fashion instead of continuing the "OK GUYS I'M DOING THESE CARTOONS ABOUT CHARACTERS I MADE UP WHEN I WAS ELEVEN I'LL BE FINISHED IN A FEW MONTHS MAYBE" thing I have going for me and I intend to change up my game plan significantly when this video is finished.
So when I finish this Halloween cartoon, should I, er... I mean, I had accounted for it being late in the script, but I thought it was going to be... November late, or something. Not-even-the-same-year late, is that even...
