Feedback on it would be appreciated!
By the way, I'm still working on Axl's Comeback, the sequel to my previous sprite animation, Axl.
That's what's new with me creatively as of now!
I mainly make sprite animations! If there's one thing you should know about my animations, it's that I place a great emphasis on the music I use in them...try to keep that in mind when watching them, have a great day! :]

For the past few weeks, I've been working on my latest sprite animation, tentatively titled Axl's Comeback, which is a sequel to my older animation, Axl. Looking back at Axl, I'm proud of the final version of it, which is why I decided to follow up on it with a sequel.
Here's a GIF preview of a section from Axl's Comeback (note: this may not appear in the final version, it may change later on):
I hope this preview and/or this post has you interested in my upcoming project and/or my older work on here...if you read/seen up to here, I appreciate it!

I changed my mind about my current sprite animation I'm making, in I think the post before this, I typed that I'm making an expanded remake of something I made in class a few years ago...well, what ended up happening is that I tried to continue the original sprite animation from my class, and I'm quite satisfied overall with what I made so far...as a result, when I'm done making the sprite animation, I'm most likely gonna upload that, the extension of my original animation I made for class a few years ago as opposed to the extended remake of it I originally planned to make

So the reason I made this post is to honor/celebrate that I've been animating/very minorly programming in ActionScript 2 in Flash, mostly sprite animations, for close to 10 years! (I think it might be close to 11 years actually!) I might've not uploaded that many things to Newgrounds and Youtube, but believe me, I have so many Flash animations from over the years in .FLA and/or .SWF formats and/or other formats like .MP4 videos , both sprite animations and some in vector Flash graphics as well!
Maybe sometime, I'll get around to uploading more of my older Flash content to here and/or on Youtube as well, but rest assured that I'm not resting on my laurels here by just uploading old previous content, as I type this post out I'm actually working on something new-ish, a expanded remake of something I made for class a few years ago, so there's that to anticipate (that is, if I get to actually finish it, right now I have many ideas for it, but something could happen where I encounter "writers block" or just lose motivation to finish it, or something else like losing the .FLA file or something...I hope none of these happen, but any of them might happen unfortunately :/ )!

So as the title of this blogpost pretty much states, I uploaded my possibly first Flash sprite animation to Youtube! I did that since when I tried to upload it here on Newgrounds, it got blammed. Also, down the line anyway, I think I was planing to upload it there as well so w/e.
If anyone's interested, this is the link to see it:

I decided I'mma go through w/ starting to upload some of my oldest Flash stuff!
For the next two uploads, both were originally made in 2007 I believe. They're both similar in animation style as well as the techniques used for both. Not to mention many of the same sounds were used in both.
Both can be considered my Flash "pre-history", as I was so inexperienced in Flash at the time, I didn't even know how to generate SWF files at all I believe! As a result, both of the sprite animations were made in such a way that they exist within Flash itself and not designed for SWFs in mind...so to upload them here and perhaps Youtube as well, I found out I can use OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) and record the entire Flash application to record the content of the sprite animations!
I'mma try to upload both of these, as well as possibly later Flash animations I made, in the date I've made them...starting w/ the oldest one first, and newer ones later perhaps.
Re: the credits of both of these animations:
Since both were made a decade ago, my memory is rather faint...so my attempt to try and list credits for both here will probably be missing so much stuff.
Most of the sound effects I beleive were from Findsounds.org or something like that IIRC, so I believe they're open-source/ok for me to use in Flash sprite animations and such. I think some were recorded from mine and my cousin's voice haha.
Megaman X and Megaman related sprites in general I believe came from Sprites Inc.
Sonic and Sonic-related sprites came from The Mystical Forest Zone I believe.
That should cover the major stuff I think...other stuff I failed to credit, I simply forgot where that stuff originated from, sadly.
I hope one or some of y'all enjoy one or both of my oldest, "pre-historic" Flash sprite stuff!

Hey people! I'm toying around w/ the idea of uploading my old old OLD Flash stuff, dating back from 2007 (which is very close to when I started getting interested in Flash/started to learn how to use it to create sprite animations...I believe I actually started in 2006-ish, but unfortunately don't have anything in possession from that era [that is, if I even MADE anything substantial during that period...most likely, I was still experimenting w/ how to use Flash at all] :/ ) and progressively going up in years until I reach the years before my earliest work uploaded to here was, the 1st ep. of Megaman X vs. Zombies series. I don't have EVERY SINGLE Flash animation I've made up until before I uploaded the 1st Megaman X vs. Zombies episode, and even if I did...I'm not sure if I'd be comforatable uploading every single one of them, for a few reasons.
I have several reasons why I'd want to upload my older work:
1.) To preserve/have backups of them somewhere besides my own HDDs and/or flash drives.
2.)To better show you folks the evolutions/de-evolutions of my animation style/styles over the years. It might make one or some of you folks better appreciate what I consider an increase in the quality overall of my current-ish stuff....who knows!
3.) I think this will be a great way to keep this account active with new uploads until I get an idea/ideas for my next new submission on here (currently, I'm on-off working on a new sprite animation, but haven't decided yet if I'mma upload it to here and/or on my Youtube account yet...I don't consider myself having gotten really far w/ it so far)
4.) I sincerelly like some of my old works...reminds me of the past in a good way...not to mention, I like to reminisce personally on my older animation techiques/styles that I no longer use these days...maybe at least one or more person besides me can like that stuff as well re: my older animation techiques/styles that I no longer use these days
I think I covered the major reasons re: why I'd want to upload my older work....I'd like to read your comments/thoughts re: this blog post if any of these things in this blog post interest you!

note: although the below is already present in the long description of the project, I feel I should repeat it again in a journal entry so here I go:
As the short description for this project kind of has typed out...this is all I have left of the latest version of the project unfortunately :/
I want to re-upload this again for a few reasons:
1.) To show any of you interested some of my ideas for MMXvsZombies III
2.) To provide some "closure" to the series, as I'm highly unlikely to create more entries in the series...especially as of now, for various reasons. I doubt though that anyone would really care this much for the series anyway, especially at this point in time, but I'm accounting for the possibility people might.
3.) I guess to sort-of show that I still have an interest in making more Flash content, especially sprite-based animations (which more often than not, are crossovers of two or more game franchises).
The above are the major, big reasons why I wanna re-upload this again...for any who enjoyed/still enjoy this rather brief series (mayyyyybe I could continue it in the future, either a sequel/sequels to MMXvsZombies II that are different from how this episode would've turned out, and/or make "spinoffs"/reference the MMXvsZombies in future Flash content I make, [the latter is MUCH more likely to happen if I do decide to continue on somehow w/ this series tbh]), I hope you like/appreciate at least one or some of the ideas I had in store for what would've been the full next entry of the series...of course, I had/I think still have several more ideas as well for what would've been the full next entry of the series, but I guess never got around to including them in animation form for various reasons...ehhh. Still though, the content that did make it into animation form here I feel should be representative overall of the ambition I orginally intended for, scope-wise, animation-wise, story-wise, etc. for this project. I hope any interested will enjoy what's left of the project!
