Hi, fellas so yeah, I haven't been pumping out new content lately because I've been so drained. Mostly creative fatigue and trying to graduate highschool, but I'm also incredibly upset with how the Friday Night Funkin' community is turning out. To me, the negatives are outweighing the positives. Mods aren't enjoyable anymore, the crew all decided to leave twitter because of how annoying people on twitter are, and honestly I don't blame them? The community is turning toxic.
With Friday Night Funkin' being the thing that got me into Newgrounds (since it wasn't a part of my childhood like it was for most people here, I stayed away from this site when I was little because of how adult it was) seeing people attack others and all the drama going on is honestly super draining. It's ruining my creative motivation, with how people seem to nitpick and judge absolutely everything. It makes me feel ashamed to be a part of the community.
On top of that, I'm kind of tired of the ship wars and people telling me who I shouldn't support? I recently had a friend get outted on youtube/tiktok because he ships picandra (Pico x Cassandra) and kyman (kyle x cartman from South park) and I'm really really REALLY tired of being grouped in with anti-shippers and pro-shippers. It's stupid. And I only ship oc x canon garbage anyway so it's not my problem.
And I don't support behavior in that form. I don't support (or hate) any sort of ship. Like do what you want, but I'm not going to comment on it because that's you doing you. It's not my place to step in. And who's been poking all this drama?
The FNF community.
So? I'm not part of the FNF community anymore. I'm sticking with classic newgrounds content. Pico, Tankman, maybe some ocs, Starbarians, etc. (Not that I made any FNF content recently besides my two songs and the cassandra vs BF thumbnail)
I'm currently working on two more things associated with Friday Night Funkin'.
-An animation with CootieGirl
-A Private Skittles mod. It'll only be a reskin with one custom song. I'm not as motivated to make a whole story with it anymore.
those will be the last two FNF related things I make. I'm not referencing it in any future animations (unless it's a collab with another animator and it's their choice) and I'm not making any more songs with the boyfriend's beep-boops.
I hope you guys understand. I'm not really sure how many people actually care because I'm not popular and I'm not a huge content creator. But either way, if that's what you guys are looking forward to, I apologize.
I do understand that ALL fandoms have their drama and flaws, but it's gotten out of hand. For me anyway.
If you guys have any art suggestions, please drop them below. I need to produce more art since I'm getting more freetime. Yes, I'll draw ocs, I'll draw anything except NSFW. If you guys could help me out, I'd love that <3
