One year animation anniversary

Posted by bakertoons - July 16th, 2021


One year today, I posted "Ask a Cat" here on NG, as well as YouTube.



I've animated before, but this is the first time I truly animated a short from start to finish. I actually wrote the script back in 2018, when I was still working for "Pencilmation". I pitched it to them, but they turned it down as they decided not to produce other series.


Fast forward to 2020, early in the global pandemic, I decided I wanted to give animation a shot again when I remembered I wrote this script. I dug it out and decided to finish it. This took some doing but after about 2 months I had enough footage animated.


It got a good reaction, even winning a Daily 4th Place on NG. This sparked a huge boost in me wanting to do more with animating, and I saw a huge potential as at this point I felt I hit the brick wall with webcomics, which I've been doing non-strop for years at that point.


Looking at it again, I've gotten much better at animating since then. Here's hoping I'll continue to improve a year from now.
