      Additional Animations
      • As an animator I started out drawing little 8bit style cartoons in MS-Paint and importing them in to MS-Movie Maker, I then transitioned in to using Flash to create my animations. Unfortunately I no longer have my old MS-Movie Maker animations but I do have a link to some of my early Flash animations that I uploaded on Newgrounds.com. If you interested in looking back at my earliest stuff then please check out the links!
