TANK YOU NEWGROUNDS!
First of all, I have to thank this awesome and magnificent community for 1.000 followers! I never thought I would reach this many, it makes me really really happy and motivates me to keep going!
This year has been full of music, I could feel myself improving with every song, I'm still pursuing that dream of becoming a full time videogame/animation composer, so thanks again, one thousand thanks to everyone that keeps helping me achieve that, for real, y'all are AMAZING!
LIFE THIS YEAR
Fortunately, this probably was my best year related to music, not a lot of -jobs- but thanks to Newgrounds and the Frontpages I've been staying afloat in terms of listeners and smaller scale commissions.
I did music for:
Koa: A Gluttonous Wizard (alpha) [check out the OST on Spotify]
Chocupixel [check out the OST on Spotify]
I'm still working on Squirrel Bytes Hyperstacks, I made 8 tracks (and still making more!) this year for them, and I'm super excited to show you guys those songs!
I also made another commissioned track that I still haven't shared here, hopefully soon!
And last but not least, I participated on this year's ADVENT, you can check that out right now! :D
Tankmas ADVENTure 2022by BrandyBuizelOpen a new gift every day in this spirited Newgrounds Advent Calendar!
That was pretty much it, not a lot but it was all honest work <3
If you guys want music for your project, I'm open for work!
But now, talking about my [personal] life situation...
This probably was one of the worst years of my life, from start to finish.
I'm emotionally drained, and really tired of so many stuff. I'm officially a dropout student, and I can't really see myself joining back college soon, mainly because i can't really afford it right now, and don't have the sufficient skills to get a scholarship anywhere, but oh well, that can be fixed by being patient and trying again I guess, I just have to wait.
Another thing that happened was that I lost all of my irl friends, not a huge biggie since I hardly shared anything in common with them. I makes me feel alone but nothing I can’t really handle, and thankfully I do have some online friends that I love and support. Which kinda takes me to this other thing, losing a really important friendship. That has me in a state of depression that I can't really explain or move on as easily due to my current emotional state, one day you open your heart and start caring for someone that in the end can easily replace you when they feel complete, or emotionally better in some way. It's scary how you don't even expect depression and it just... hits you, and you are so alone in life that the struggle to get out of that hell-hole is very much real.
But I'm still here to bring you interesting music!
I also should mention that I'm still jumping from place to place, hopefully this year I can land and be stable and get my own place.
INTERESTING MUSIC TO CHECK OUT
First I gotta thank the Newgrounds staff for the Frontpages, every song I uploaded this year was actually Frontpaged! Thank you!
I would say the highlights of the year were:
My song She Storm, which is probably one of the most meaningful songs I've made, it really shows how bad those times were by those experimental and emotional melodies.
Derpi Rush, a hyperactive/chaotic song that makes me happy~ haha, it was made for AND inspired by Cutsu-Art!
And of course Snowygrounds, the song I made for the ADVENT
You can check out my latest song, Goth Pirates! A song inspired by Castle Crashers, and dedicated to Newgrounds <3
COOL ARTISTS TO CHECK OUT!
You guys should check out my broskis from RadTunez
Shoutout to TomFulp and Waterflame!
I think that's it for now, thank you everyone again for all the support, may the next year be better for all of us~
