This is very important *TPS related*

Okay, I've got some good news and some bad news.

The bad news:
I've been thinking about this for a while and I think I've finally made a decision. I'm sorry to say, but with the way things are going its beginning to look like I'll never finish TPS. I just plain don't enjoy it like I used to and it's becoming a bit of a hassle with all the voice switching and stuff. It's a shame because I'd finally figured out the problems I was having with Flash. But the whole project is becoming too stressful for me now and I can't go on animating a series that I don't like.

The thing is, when I started this project I was VERY depressed, as I was going through a VERY rough time at school. All the stress of school and animation just sucked the fun out of the project. If I was in the right frame of mind when I started it maybe I could finish it, but as of right now I really don't like TPS. At the time all I was thinking was "I'm going to be the next Kirbopher15!" whom I see as a bit of a animation idol, but I realize now that I was being a stupid kid, and was reaching for a goal I just plain couldn't achieve. Again, I wasn't in the right frame of mind for starting a project like this. I always wanted to do an animation series, but I never really wanted to do TPS, the only reason I did it to begin with was to get all the bad "practice" animation stuff out of the way. I continued because I didn't want to be a quitter and I didn't want to let people down. But now I just can't go on animating a series I don't like and adding unnecessary stress to myself.

I'm sorry to all the voice actors who have done voices in this project, especially the ones that have stayed with me the longest. You guys are awesome and I hope we can still be friends. I'm also sorry to all my fans that have enjoyed this series and have supported me through the downs. You guys are great and I'm sorry to let you down. I'm also sorry to all the people who have helped me with sprites and audio. You guys did excellent jobs and I'm sorry I'm dropping the project like this.

Now for the good news:
Fear not! I'm not quitting animation! I still have another series in the works. This is the series I REALLY want to work on, I've been planning it since I was about 10, although the ideas for it have gotten more mature as I've grown up. I really wanted to start with this series but I thought I might as well do another series first to introduce my characters and get all of the animation bugs out of the way.

This series I'm going to take proper care on and I won't release it till I KNOW it's ready. I will practice with my flash skills before releasing it. Sadly I won't be using voice actors for this series, well... not completely anyway. I think I might use, what I like to call, the KirboEarthworm technique. By that I mean, having clickable text boxes with what the characters are saying in them. But I will still have the occasional grunts, groans and single lines.

I'm going to take proper preparation with this series. By that I mean, getting all the sprites ready, getting all the backgrounds ready, getting all the music ready, and getting all the scripts ready etc. The problem with TPS was that I didn't properly plan it. But with this new series I've learned my lesson and will make sure I've got everything ready before starting. I see this new series as a fresh new start for me.

Again I'm sorry about all of this, but I just can't go on animating a series I don't like. I think it's time to start on the series I will like and that I really want to do. But I will need help with this new project, such as helping with the sprites, script writing, preparing music etc. But I'll say more on that closer to when I need the help.

I won't release any key information about this project, but I will tell you its name. It's going to be called: TVA. Some of my online friends already know a little information about it, and I will release more information about it in a few weeks time.

As for TPS, soon I will post up a summery of what was going to happen in all 3 series arcs on my DeviantART page, it's only fair.

Once again, I'm VERY sorry about all of this, and I hope we can all still be friends.

you apologize too much, it's understandable if you stop doing a series you don't like. some of the fans may get a little upset, but hey, life goes on. i was actually looking forward to seeing part 2 of that last one though.

what types of sprites are you planning on using. no doubt your custom characters that had no relation to any video game (Jack and that other guy), but i'm sure that you have some others planned. just make sure that you have a large sprite sheet that will make their animations look more fluid, and less choppy (like what happened in your practice series for instance). but why am i giving advice about flash? i haven't even used it once, or any audio/video animation programs for that matter.

it's good to hear that you aren't using voices for your next project. no offense, but the voice acting wasn't too great. they weren't putting their hearts into it (a big issue if you want to have someone do voices alone), some of them had no emotion at all.

good luck with this next series. btw what is TVA anyways?

KHF responds:

Of course. I'm going to take proper care with one :D Thanks.
