It's because I noticed my favorite creators stopped creating episodes in their sprite series. I greatly wish for them to return one day. So I took it upon myself to "sub in" and create sprite animations myself, not in the hopes of stealing the spotlight from them, but to keep sprite animation alive, until they return. One of those creators did return. He commented on two of my animations, and even followed my Newgrounds account! The funny thing about all of that was, I never expected or hoped for such a thing to happen. For a favorite creator of mine to comment and follow me on here...that's truly the stuff of dreams. In a hypothetical situation where the creator or creators did return, I feel like I'd still animate too, I won't give up sprite animation once they return, if they return.
