Doodles for Donations part 2
As far as animating goes, you can pick whatever version you want from Flash 8 to CS6, as there aren’t that many notable differences. Only if you wish to use actionscript 3 you need to get CS3 minimum, but it’s not really needed for most animating needs.
My latest two animations were made in CS6, but I found it way too unstable so I’m reverting back to CS4, which I’ve used for most of my pony animations. However, Flash 8 would be my go-to choice if it wasn’t for AS3 and some other quirks.
I don’t watch anime too often, but recently I’ve finished watching Giant Gorg and Space Pirate Captain Harlock (it was recently released on Amazon, check it out if you like oldschool stuff!). Also did a write up on of my childhood favorite (StarZinger) here.
From the more recent shows I greatly enjoyed Steins;Gate.
Other favorites include Lupin III, Cyborg 009 (80s and 2001 versions), Super Dimension Fortress Macross, and bunch of others.
Sometimes it’s not easy being scaredy pon.
For this animation I asked people to send in their ideas, and this is the result. Kinda wanted to make it grander, but oh well.

SDA’s Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 starting in a few minutes.
Welp, rip any meaningful productivity for the next seven days.
As some of you might know, I’m Finnish. What most non-Finns might not know is that Finland has a mandatory conscription for all of its male citizens, which includes serving time in military. The actual length of the service can vary a lot depending on a few factors. However, there’s also an alternative to the military approach, called civil service. Unless you’re physically/mentally unable to do any service, the third option is going to jail.
I’m a massive sissy I do not support the Finnish military, I’m taking the civil service approach. If you’re too lazy to read the wikipedia article, it’s essentially working extremely low wage (+ some decent bonuses) at a place of your choice for a year.
In fact, I just returned from a job interview for a technical support position. I got hired on the spot.
What this effectively means is that I’m going to halt my university studies for a year, and around March I’ll be going to a dedicated training camp for a month, after which I begin my duty.
So as you may notice, I have two months until March, so I can use that however I want (like finish that long over-due Lily short and then some). Also given the nature of the job, I’ll likely end up with far more free time than what I do while studying at the university, so I may be able to push out stuff more often.
So yeah, that’s what 2014 is basically gonna be for me. Hope the rest of you have fun ponying, drinking, blowing yourself up or however you decide to spend New Year’s Eve.
Been catching up with WoY, and decided to do this.
