Sorry for not replying before, I was just very busy.
Create a goal, take a break, start charging.Thanks for the advice, 2Dee. I've actually considered doing comissions multiple times tbh.
He's just givin' useful advice. Chill, dude.Create a goal, take a break, start charging.Not everyone's like you charging people for things. Stop preaching man.
I second that.It depends really. If someone paid me to make a PotS-Styled DBZ character (for example), I'd be glad to work on it, haha.
If you are burnt out Mr. Ansatsuken then you should absolutely take a break. Last thing you want to do is take commissions and make it a job. When I was cranking out custom ports for Legacy I got some wild requests for shit I had no interest in, and last thing I wanted was to take peoples money and be obligated to work on whatever weird weeabo furry cartoon nonsense that I had zero motivation to complete.
or not, maybe you are into that. What do I know? you do you man.
Now tbh, I'd rather shoot myself in the head instead of making someone's "fursona" for Mugen, yikes.
You know... chances are I'll be back anyway.Oh, and... after helping DJMouF with Goku, Gohan and Vegeta... I'm most likely quitting Mugen again, tbh.All the best man, will wait for your return one day if you have time to waste for Mugen creation as always
Perhaps I'll still lurk in the forums for some time, but I've come to the same conclusion I did 3 years ago.Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
Mr. Ansatsuken's reason to quit sounds vague and I don't get why. He was pretty hyped about releasing more characters in this style and now he's just quitting. He even said he planned to update Bardock after Broly finishes. I hope my comment doesn't have anything to do with it. All I was doing is giving him feedback on him that I held out as I promised. I wouldn't pester him if I knew.Well, yeah, it sounds vague, because I haven't given a real explaination.
MAN THIS BROLLY IS SOOO FREAKING .......... COOL +)......... man I been a Fan of Your work for yearssssssssss WOW.... ...…. KEEP GOING YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSThank you so much, Mike! Haha
Don't quit, Mr. Ansatsuken!I'm glad you enjoy my stuff, haha.
Your works are godly! You shouldn't quit again! You can't give up on Mugen again right now!
But... it's not much of a matter of choice, tbh.
He says he’s gonna quit Mugen, etc every time he releases a character then reappears with a new 1 the following year then says the same thing..... there’s definitely a patternYou definitely see a pattern because there's clearly one.
I guess I’ll sound preachy, but you never know what someone is going through.. People behind those screens; It’s not always about mugen, links etc. Also your words have more power than you realize.. The amount of work/detail you put into this stuff, it’s easy to get burnout. I mean, you all know that despite having bad carpal tunnel/vision guy keeps pumping this stuff out as fast as he does. I don’t know one creator who isn’t putting 10+ hrs daily into it. It’s a job practically. Rest is an essential part of it.2Dee gets it.
Well you see, I don't usually like to talk about personal stuff on the Internet, mostly because it's full of asshats.
But now... if you really care about the situation, here goes I guess.
I've been dealing with chronic depression for 11 years (and I'm 20).
I have several mental problems tbh.
Depression used to be what brought me back into Mugen over and over.
And now... it's the reason I decided to leave again.
But why? Well, here's why.
Life was great this year. And so was for the majority of last year.
I was working out every day. I had money. I was meeting with a ton of friends.
However... shortly after I got back into Mugen...
At the end of february, life started to go downhill. In every single way.
I won't get into much detaily of "why" it happened, but from the end of February 'til the end of April, I started to lose things every single day...
What truly managed to break me was losing my job 3 weeks ago, after 2 and a half years..
So much shit has happened in the recent months...
I thought I had finally overcome depression. But turns out I was wrong.
Now I need to get my life together again. I need to get a new job, for example.
What's holding me back from fixing my life? Mugen.
But why? Yes, it is possible to balance things in life, I know.
However I'm an obsessive guy. That's just one of my other problems...
I am wayy, WAYYY too obsessive.
I have not (and apparently, can not) managed to balance MUGEN with the other activities in my life.
Mugen always ends up consuming me. At first I spend barely 2 hours coding.
But eventually I end up spending 10+ hours a day coding Mugen.
If you want to tell me to find balance, thank you, but it's useless.
I've tried for years now, and it seems what didn't work yesterday, won't work today.
I like making Mugen stuff. Of course I do.
However I can't seem to fit Mugen into my life without becoming its slave.
If I want to get a new job (which I MUST do as soon as possible), I need to quit Mugen for good.
(This is one of the reasons why I've considered doing comissions btw)
By the way, don't worry about my mental state. I've been dealing with depression forever.
Besides, I'm not suicidal and haven't been in a long time.
Thank you for caring enough to tell me to seek help. And yes, I've already done that.
I've lost count on how many psychologists I've talked to. It doesn't matter. They cannot do anything about it. And while I truly appreciate the effort, neither can you... I think.
Like I said, life was great UNTIL I got back into Mugen.
Now, of course there's no DIRECT connection between the two things. But mind you, to me, there are no such things a "coincidences".
If life was great for a long time until I went back to making Mugen characters, then life will be great again if I stop making Mugen characters.
I didn't want the thread to derail, so let's get back on topic now, haha
