Entry #75

Some good news and some (really) bad news.

2013-05-01 13:08:48 by Mottis

Well, it's been a while, huh? Sorry about that.

I guess I subconsiously decided to take a break from Newgrounds, animating and anything Bunnykill related and let me tell you... (here's the good news) I haven't been this relaxed for a long while. I have been more active in life and I'm currectly doing my best trying to get out of unemployment. My next goal is to get a driver's license and a car.

However, there's always the thought lingering, tucked deep in my head: "I need to get back to work, I need to keep working on Bunnykill, I need to, I have to, I must, there's no escape." No matter how long of a break I take, I can't shake the feeling of being "chained" like this. It's always there, causing anxiety and stress.

In addition to that, for the longest time now, working on Bk has no longer been fun, aside from a few rare brainstorming moments. The spark is simply... gone. Having to force myself to animate and then getting angry at myself because I couldn't finish even one kill today is not what I want from a hobby like this.

I think you know where I'm going with this. That's right... the bad news. I have slowly come to a realization; I cannot keep working on Bunnykill anymore. The stress that it causes is simply too much to bare. It is sad, yeah, but it's for the best. I'm sure you guys understand.

Now, Is this the end of my animating career? I sure hope not. Even though Bk no longer interests me, I have been playing around with flash, trying out fbf animation styles and doing other tests and I find it highly entertaining. So, stay tuned, who knows, maybe someday I release a completely new flash movie.

As for Bunnykill: a huge thanks to all my fans. It's been one hell of a ride <3

Everyone gets in some moment tired of a certain thing. The trick is to not stay too much on that certain thing. Now, I'd suggest to focus on real life first, and then try some new ways of animating and start a new series. Then, if the spark returns, do the last Bunnykill episode. If it doesn't, then it's okay. What you made is already beautiful enough.

Mottis responds:

Thanks. Yeah I'm already having a lot of fun trying different new animation techniques. We'll see how that turns out ^^


2013-05-01 14:00:54

I'm happy that you made this decision, really brave of you.
But I sure am gonna miss your livestreams. They were really fun and interesting to watch.

Mottis responds:

Really? I only streamed like 2 times. But thanks :D


2013-05-01 14:01:15

look for the light side, you didn't leave nobody in cliff hangers, like alvin-earthworm and his super mario bros Z series, i loved that one... :(

(Updated ) Mottis responds:

Well the ending in Bk5.2 can sort of be seen as a cliff hanger... I mean yeah, since the next part was going to be a prequel, I was never going to continue the story... But a lot of people don't know that, I bet.


2013-05-01 14:34:33

No need to keep working on it if you're no longer inspired. The series had an amazing run while it lasted, and Bunnykill 3 Vol. 1 was one of my greatest inspirations in animation when it first came out. Best of luck with your future endeavors!

Mottis responds:

Thank you and you're welcome! :D


2013-05-01 15:36:51

Honestly man, be proud. Bunnykill is amazing, unique, and just all around amazing. With all the madness stuff going around and random killing flashes, yours still stood out among the rest, and are all just classics. I really look forward to your future projects.

Mottis responds:

I am proud :)
Even though Bunnykill caused me nothing but stress towards the end, it's still the biggest achievement in my life thus far. We'll see if I can top that in the future ;)


2013-05-01 16:38:21

Man i'm sorry to hear that and anything you choose next i wish you the best of luck in your life :D

Mottis responds:

Thank you!


2013-05-01 19:06:43

Dude, fuck it.

Your life is getting better now. And Real Life > Internet Life
Keep improving it.
I wish you good health and a ton of motivation.

Mottis responds:

Yeah it's getting better, slow and steady. Let's just hope I can keep it up ^^


2013-05-01 22:08:32

Your right. sometimes u gotta leave on a high note. for real tho bunny kill 1 & 2 were some of my favorite flases as a kid and your backgrounds and character animation keep getting better and better. Im sure whatever you chose to animate next will be just as great of a series. Good luck, and enjoy your time off :)

Mottis responds:

Thank you, I will.


2013-05-01 22:09:33

well atleast your not like johnbro and you didn't quit in the middle
number five felt done and over with
just leave it if you can't keep it up

Mottis responds:

Yeah it could have been worse. I still haven't finished the ending for the JASF series...


2013-05-02 01:31:53

Yeah, man, I NEVER do sequels right away. You did the same thing for years. If you're just burning out now, consider yourself extremely patient, lol. Go make something else, and don't take it seriously. It's more fun that way.

(Updated ) Mottis responds:

^This guy gets it :D


2013-05-02 03:40:16

Can you please release what you did?
althrough it's not much, it's at least something...a COOL something

Mottis responds:

Hmm. I've never liked releasing unfinished stuff. I might show some pics some day, but I dunno. We'll see.


2013-05-02 13:24:00

It doesn't matter, we won't judge you.


2013-05-02 14:06:42

you really had no way of continuing bunnykill
the main char is dead the progtagonist is injured and now what


2013-05-02 16:20:53

It's ben long enough for us to think Bunnykill is over.
If killing still entertains you and you find too hard to start a new series, the Madness world is always open.


2013-05-02 17:57:26

Better to end on a high, rather than carry a franchise after the spark has gone. Some TV studios could learn from you. Hope you succeed in real life matters too dude


2013-05-02 19:07:52

Interesting. Do you ever intend to return one day?


2013-05-03 11:43:11

While the end of BK brings me no joy I wouldn't want you to continue it if your heart is not in it.
It's been great run, hard to believe it's been over 8 years since BK was begun.
You be good Mottis and if/when you return I'll be there, eager to see what you will have created.
Until then I wish you the best of luck, it's been a pleasure.

I don't want to end this with a "goodbye", it feels to final. Instead I'll just say: See you later.

PS: For what it's worth, having these conversations with you have been a great experience.
As a fan of yours it has meant a great deal to me. Thank you for everything. =)


2013-05-04 04:55:53

Well, at least you came out with a bang. Bunnykill pt. 2 was simply amazing. Thank you for your Bunnykill series, it was was a a very good ride, and I hope you return some day. Life without your flash movies will be a sad one, but your personal life is more importrant and good luck luck with that. Best of luck and I hope to you again, someday...


2013-05-04 14:41:52

RIP Bunykill: 2005 - 2013
As of you, we wont be angry if bunykill is gone, we will still support you. good luck on your life

P.S: Good luck with the license, too.


2013-05-05 11:35:39

Hate to see it end, but I'm eager to see what you produce next. There's absolutely no way for you to go inert, you'll be up to something for sure.


2013-05-08 02:05:31

Well everything haz to have end and bunnykill isn't a exception hope the next series you make gets a lot of fame.


2013-05-08 02:05:32

Well everything haz to have end and bunnykill isn't a exception hope the next series you make gets a lot of fame.


2013-05-11 03:21:23

Nothing is fun if you do it too much. Any spark will burn out if you just keep forcing it to burn. BK may be no more, but it was among the first Flash series I ever watched, and I'm glad I got to watch it through to the end. And I'm glad it DID actually have an ending of sorts, rather than just dying mid-story like so many unfortunately do. Thank you for creating it for us, I know many of us are still eager to see what you come up with next.


2013-05-14 18:25:49

You know what man, good for you. If BunnyKill is tying you down then the time has come. No one has any right to judge you for that. I wish you the best of luck in all your future pursuits.


2013-05-16 16:18:33

Dude, I can't believe you were even thinking about a quadrilogy man. The needy fans are gettin' to 'ya. You DO seriously need a break. Who knows, after a few DIFFERING style, you might inspire yourself to animate a lil cameo to say "hey, I used to do this lol" in your later animations.


2013-05-19 12:54:15

IT's been great. Bunnykill 5 part 2 was a great finale, feel good man. It's more important that you're getting more relaxed and active with life. That's the most important thing, and it's great to hear. Right now I'm trying to get my license and a car as well, albeit making very slow progress, but haha yeah. I'm a procrastinator.

The Bunnykill series did well, feel accomplished, you did great, now be happy and keep your life moving forward!!


2013-05-19 13:10:49

I mean if I want Bunnykill there's more than enough length in the already made ones to go back and re-watch. IF you ever, EVER do feel like getting back into it though, maybe another big theme change would put the spice back into it for you, such as how 4 was changed to a chinese/japanese ninja and samurai theme, which I actually found to be a very interesting theme that worked out real well. Maybe a new them would spice it up again.

Either way as said, it's good to see you getting back up there in life, and I look forward to any nw flash series you come up with!


2013-05-19 15:45:03

I definitely see where you are coming from on this. I signed up to years ago and it got me into advancing my drawing skills. However, as the years passed, I was getting bored with constant studies and having to force myself to draw when I wasn't in the mood to do so. What did I do to relieve my frustration? By making music of course.


2013-05-20 11:28:21

almost 10 years of bunny kill.
Amazing stuff man thanks for making them.


2013-05-20 14:09:13

I can't really say anything new, everyone already wrote my thoughts.
I just want to say that You did the right thing. I could say it's like farting: if you push it too hard, it will be sh*t. :D
And thank you for making these good movies, I watch them a lot, they give me strength for the future. :)
I wish you the best in real life!!


2013-05-31 14:02:50

Oh, too late to post a new comment, but...

Well, It's over. I enjoyed Bunny Kill series for many years, and I always have known that you would finish with it someday (obviously), more or less in "Bunny Kill 6" ... Well, almost! haha

Meh, the most important thing is your health and your interest in BK, so... All right!
At least you're alive (?) lol
.. (Well, I can check this by Skype, but.. haha)

Ok, I talk too much.
See you! Good luck :D


2013-06-03 09:08:25

No hard feelings. Sad to see it go, but I understand the feeling. It ain't a hobby anymore if you freak out over it. Hope to see you back around sometime!


2013-06-03 20:38:05

Sad to see this but I am glad for the work you did. You were the reason I found Newgrounds. Saw Bunny Kill on Armor games years ago and this site through that.

Thanks for all the awesome animation and I hope you do well getting your life in order.


2013-06-07 18:33:46

I dont care what you make, I can assume that whatever is next will be awesome. BunnyKill was great but it is good to move on.


2013-06-08 05:48:28

a few years back when i frequented newgrounds i would have been devastated by this news. however now i realize that bk has had a good run. i am sad to see you wont be making any more however if it is not fun for you then you should not feel compelled on our behalf to keep doing something you don't like


2013-06-09 18:13:50

What matters is that you are doing better, and we are all glad about that. It is sad that Bk is gone, but like everyone is saying, it had a good run. We hope you do well in the real world and we wish you nothing but the best. Just don't forget us and feel free to check back here from time to time. We'll get over it. We adapt to situations. Get better and do what you will. We don't want to cause you any unnecessary stress. It's lie everyone says: It's a hobby until it stops being fun. Then, it's a job. We do not want to overwork you. I think that I should stop right here (because I am really making this longer than it needs to be). So to summarize: Thank you for some of the best Flash ever, we wish you good luck, and we hope to see you around.


2013-06-18 13:17:45

I enjoy your series alot more that piece of crap madness series(sorry franchise)
I enjoy since i was kid now it sad to see it go
One thing is...
Are you planing release the source files for BunnyKill?
It Been Great. I can't wait see what you come up with next. :)


2013-06-23 02:17:03

The series was amazing man!
I'm glad your taking a better turn in life though, sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do. Do what you want to do, and not what other people want you to.
Don't give up on your dreams.


2013-07-13 11:51:36

DAAAAMMMM that sucks, i was a massive fan of the bunnykill series and have been watching it for awhile, couldnt wait for the next episode, then i saw this. but hey, everything ends one way or another, and im glad your doing better, theres no reason for you to force yourself into working on BK if your not having fun doing it. Good luck and if you ever make anything else il probably go watch it. Thanks for all the years of amazing gory violent action.


2013-07-18 23:31:44

Real shame that animating bunnykill has went to that point, it really is good series. but yeah if animating it doesn't please you or make you excited in anyway, yeah maybe it is time to move on and do something that really fills you with joy. mitä työttömyyteen tulee niin on valitettavaa kuulla että säin kuulut tähän isoon osaan suomen nuorisosta. ajattelin muuttaa kouvolaan halpojen asuntojen perässä mutta kuulin että siellä töitä on vielä vähemmän kuin omassa kaupungissain :/ autokortin hommaaminen on hyvä idea ja avaa paljon uusia mahdollisuuksia työrintamalla. no voimia ja toivottavasti löydät sen mitä etsit


2013-08-05 02:15:30

Will you hand over the .fla for someone to finish it?


2013-08-12 02:17:27



2013-08-13 23:56:03

I was really excited for the and probably last episode where the boss bunny would have gotten what he deservers but like everyone said not everything goes on forever like a few newgrounds people i can think of 1 who took a nice break from newgrounds after uploading a long a tireful animation he did what you did after he put out 3 long parts he is Xionico. I respect you for do what you thought was right congrats dude


2013-08-18 19:37:04

Hey, have you ever considered passing over the torch to another animator that would want to finish the series? I think that would be a great idea so there's some resolution at least. Good luck with your new project! :)


2013-08-21 04:30:44

i say that you should start doing a different series or just branch out from this one series of bunnykill. i mean if you want just make the final one be the next one and right after either start a new series or just do something different like a collab with a game or something, you have the potential you just need to know how to use it


2013-09-02 02:30:09

"sign" i knew this day would come.
Most badass things always end and we will never find out what happens in the end. ._.
First super mario bros Z and now bunnykill is gone.
I still got madness but some people don't make those anymore.
Will it get worse?
I hope not.


2013-09-07 15:28:55

I'm not sad because Bunnykill is over...
But I'm actually sad because it ended with an episode where Snowball dies...


2013-09-14 08:37:42

well is over ):


2013-09-14 20:38:46

That was a great series. You did a great job!
