I practice in film, animation and drawing. I plan to go to the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I intend to get a major in Sequential Arts.
I do sprites edits and sprite animations in my spare time, but I also work around with some drawn animation every now and again.
I'm aware it hasn't been long since my last journal; however, events have happened that require some news and an update for everyone who watches me.

First off: my laptop got sorta fried and has issues such as not being able to charge and keeps booting up in "Quick Web" mode when I turn it off. I'm currently in the process of raising the funds to send it in to get a full repair on it. Thankfully, I have this old desktop and all my files still on an external hard drive so nothing of major importance was lost.

Second: I was in a car accident 2 days ago.To be clear, yes I am okay. I was not injured, neither of the people that were hit were injured and the vehicles in question were not damaged too badly. It's gonna cost a little money to repair my truck and I do have to pay a fine. While the laptop was my top priority, due to this happening, I've had to change that plan.

For those who don't care about me and my personal life: Yes, I'm still working on some art and slaving away at Chaos War. There are sprite sheets that need immediate attention and work on cause I got some plans for the episode ;). While that's going on, I have a little something special planned to hold you all over. Maybe along the lines of a series of back-stories leading up to the episode? Who knows, I could be lying to you and I'm just pulling some major douche moves in episode 9.

That's all I can think of to say right now. You're all beautiful people.
God bless.

Hi there John. I am Lusenchi,I've seen your Flash tutorials and they are quite accurate. I liked your way ls on how you do your animations and it inspired me to start animations. I just have one question. Can you do a tutorial on how you add mp3 files onto your flash animation?
JohnTheBaratrian Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
It's as simple as dragging and dropping the .mp3 file into the Flash library. Or, you can go to File>Import>Import to Library. That also puts files into the Flash library. If it says it can't be imported due to some error: get an audio program (I use Audacity) to reconvert it to a new, fresh .mp3; or, save it as a .wav (though sometimes converting it to that will change the pitch and speed once imported into Flash). Just take some time to mess around with the settings too. On a final note: make sure to change the publish settings (in the properties panel) so the sound is at least look like this: for the best sound once the Flash movie is exported and/or rendered.
Hope this helped!
