That's awesome, Jali!  Your hard work obviously shows through and you've got an incredible talent that's up there with the pro's!

thanks, i'm always trying to improve and build upon what i have learnt, I work really hard on the animations, on average they take 12 weeks, unfortunately i'm not getting the youtube views I would have hoped for, maybe someday I will be a successful youtube animator :chin:

Your hard work really shows!

Sorry you aren't getting the views you were hoping for - if you have a website then maybe put them on there with a link to your site in all your sigs and stuff?  Don't you dare give up, the views will start slowly increasing and you might get overwhelmed then!
Money talks, chocolate sings!  :-D

May your life be as pleasant as you are.

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for the kind words, I wont give up, it's just that I work so hard on my animations and get very little recognition, I know I just need to keep pushing forward and maybe some day I'll catch a break, who knows :chin:

here a new animation, it's an intro for one of my favorited podcasts

Who are you animating for, Jali? 

Maybe take a look deep inside your heart and just make sure that you're doing it for the right reasons (ie for you instead of for the views)?

You sound like me in many ways when I first started doing my blog - I was searching for things to put in it for other people instead of myself and I got very low and even suicidal when I didn't get as many views as I wanted each day but I came to a realisation that I need to do it for me and if other people want to read my mad mutterings then that's a bonus, but my main reason is that I need to get things out of my head and somewhere that I can hold myself accountable.

What I'm saying and probably failing at, is that you need to look at this selfishly... do it because you enjoy it rather than for getting the views... they should be a bonus rather than the main reason.

Sorry if I've hurt you by saying that.

:arms: if you'll accept it from me now?

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply, I create these animations for myself, yes it would be nice to get the views, because lets face who doesn't like lots of views right?, ultimately I do it because i've  always loved art, animation and all things creative, I studied animation at university and even worked for a big graphic design studio, but I was creating the art they wanted and not my own, that was the driving force behind doing these youtube animations, I know as long as I keep creating theses animations I will eventually get the recognition I would like, I've had a good few people on youtube tell me my animations are cool and my channel is underrated which is always nice,

anyway I just finished another animation hope you guys like it

I've got no idea who Scott Pilgrim is, but the speed of their speech must have taken forever to animate!  This is your best one so far, Jali!
