Some of you may have remembered that I had a couple of series in the past that haven't been updated for a while. Well, the thing is...a few of them have been cancelled as of last year. And those cancelled series are:
Lower My Bills Toons
Firstly, Bloom was something that I have started long before The Squishables series has, but after Balls and 1PointerMation came to be. It featured a girl named Bloom who was somewhere between the age of 9-13, had bright pink hair, and went on several adventures. Either way, I made that character older than I was at the time. It was animated in Artoonix, but I stopped creating animations about the character just two months before 1PointerMation went on its two-year hiatus. The only time she ever made an appearance again after that was in an unreleased The Squishables animation of its first season about Box Tops, but sadly I lost that portion. However, she may return someday, though. But not right now, especially when I should be working on a certain The Squishables animation (of Season 7 by the way).
Secondly, The Clippys was a series that went through the adventures of three paperclips made by MrRandomTux. They were mainly about holidays like Pi Day, Arbor Day, Columbus Day, and etc. This series got cancelled just sometime last year. In fact, there was even a new short and episode released last year, and technically, none of them have actually lived an entire year yet!
Thirdly, Shapeworld was about the crazy adventures of different Wavatars created by Shamus Young. In one episode (in which I found out that the shapes that I've been using for a year were Wavatars), a MonsterID (in which I regret using) even made a cameo! But that was cancelled shortly afer I was going to change up the series a bit (like making its new name Wavatars). Besides, the last episode was released on October 5, 2013.
And as for Lower My Bills Toons, just ignore that nonsense. It just featured me lazily animating the adventures of some of the faces, heads, and etc. that came from the Lower My Bills ads.
There was also Character Fun, a fake TV channel made by me that has begun sometime between Balls/1PointerMation and The Squishables (most likely on June 30, 2008). It was on Dailymotion, and almost all of the videos there were made in 2008. Only three of them were made in 2011 when it made its quick revival. One of the 1PointerMation animations, which was a parody of a Geico commercial, even featured a couple of Character Fun posters, including one about crayons, but that series never got a chance to debut (and it'll probably never will), along with a series about ICQ, althoughy they were also supposed to be two more series that ran on the Character Fun channel. Anyway, all of the series that were on the channel are over as well. By the way, all but one of the series were animated in PowerPoint. Another one (the latest and last show of that channel) was done using a Sothink software and was only had two animations that were created in September 2011.
Not only that, but even before any of my series came to life, I used to draw a lot of piano-like characters until sometime in 2006 (or a bit later). They were sort of like this:
The only other characters that I still use today that had even existed back then were the scribbles and possibly the pointers as well. That's right, not even the balls are older than them! I think I gave up drawing those guys a long time ago (at least before The Squishables existed). Not sure when or if those piano characters will ever return, although I do play piano now, so yeah.
A Bunch of Artoonix Characters that You Don't Know Yet
Jemin may have been the first Artoonix animation to be released online, but it wasn't even close to being my ACTUAL first one.
Now, it's possible that my first MsAgent character was created in 2007. However, a couple of months after making some more, I discovered Artoonix and tried it out. In March 2008 at most, I had created a number of animations about characters (like a Binmonster who I regretted making and giving to a character). Unfortunately, one of them (the Binmonster one) lost its original sound thanks to one of my cousins, but oh well, I don't know where the files of those old animations are or if I can even get them anymore. Either way, they existed before both the Balls and the 1PointerMation series.
The Flixprod Stuff Series MAY Return
Now you may have noticed that I've been pretty silent lately about The Flixprod Stuff series. Originally, it was cancelled, but now I'm thinking about bringing it back. There a ton of new characters for it too, so when it returns (if it does), it'll have a huge set of characters. But again, I'm not 100% about it returning or being cancelled right now, so please don't ask me about it's possible return.
In conclusion, that's all I have to say about everything in this big blog post. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to show you some sneak peeks of some of my series.
But anyway, God bless you, have an awesome day, and see you then!
Been making animations since at least early 2006!
Want to Make Videos Similar to My Father's Videos?
Use PowerDirector 14 Ultimate Suite to make them, but for timelapses, use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. He uses Lightroom 3.
By the way, go to PowerDirector University for tutorials of that program.
