Hey Newgrounds!

Sorry for my low output in terms of Amazin' Comics, school has been keeping me very busy. I recently did a part for a collab with the cool guys from New Wave, check that out here: 

I'll be still doing Amazin' Comics whenever I feel inspired, but I was thinking of doing another comic alongside it. I've been throwing a few ideas around in my head and I haven't decided what to do it on yet, so I made a strawpoll that you can vote on to decide the genre the comic would be:

No matter what it will be a comedy that follows actual characters along a loose plotline. I'll be actually trying artwise (to my limited abilities) so it'll look a bit better than the Amazin' Comics. 

I also did this little collage of all my videos (which you can find here and/or on https://www.youtube.com/AmazinLarry) in msPaint so here:

That's about it for now!

Animation

I hate the state of the animation community. There is no ambition to create anything worthwhile because it takes a lot of effort and thought, and simply isn't profitable. Very few are able to juggle being able to make a career out of it while still making content that is artistically satisfying. I'd say about 98% of every independent (not made by a studio) cartoon ever made because irrelevant and worthless within a month of being released. Some are irrelevant before they come out. People praise these shitty parody cartoons that have no relevance or value beyond perhaps a cheap laugh because you understood a reference that was made within the video. I'm tired of seeing things like that. I'm just tired of it. It will always be popular and always get a lot of views, and if that's your aim as an artist by all means go ahead. As long as you are transparent with your intention to amass popularity and views rather than create anything that will be worth anything a year from now, then you can continue mass-producing uncreative, unoriginal shit.
Now a lot of animators are discouraged because of the state of animation. Why work hard and long on one video that won't get noticed at all? A lot of them turn to parody and topical comedy because its not only easier, but it has almost a guarantee of garnering an audience. I only see this as noble when they use this as a stepping stone, by first gaining a large fanbase with shitty videos then to focus on more serious projects so you now have an audience to present them to. Honestly very few animators have done this because they get a taste of the easy e-fame that corrupts them into a life of sloth and greed.
That's not to say that there are no worthwhile animators or animations, just due to the nature of the system it is harder for me and others to discover them because they get very little attention and thus do not spread far. I will link some animations below that I like. If you want you can click them and look.
