I am happy to announce that my madness project is getting worked on again, luckly some of greatest madness animators are willing to collaborate with me and bring it back to life! :)
Currently story needs to be rewritten, as well as new concept art has to be made.
VOICE ACTORS will be needed, so if you are one or know about one, pls shoot me a PM :)

It has been 10 years since I started doing animation.
Madness themed movies were getting really popular at that time and it really motivated me to start working on my own videos.
this is the very first video I have actually released, called Madness Masaker http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/447220
It was nothing more than fun and I had no idea what just had started.
During those 10 years, newgrounds got me into music, which became huge part of my life too.
Especially when I won 1.st place on Madness Day AUDIO contest with Ryder Revenge theme http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/504118 composed for my best friend from Madness community Dj-janer. (who got it really far with his animations)
In year 2009 I discovered something trouly special for me, something that changed my life.
It was BLENDER, 3d modeling/animation software.
One fo first images I released was this dark grungy room http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/sunshaft/stream I eventually started using 3ds max and vray and it went really well.
It went so well that I started to think I could apply far a job at 3d modeling as soon as I graduate.
During my finals at University of Economics in Bratislava I started working on my personal portfolio.
I also applied for several job offers, which turned well for me, and I was accepted for all fo them! Best offer was from UPP - company that does VFX for films like The WALK or Gods of Egypt.
This is my showreel, I was hired before I could finish it. https://vimeo.com/140078117
At this point I though my days of madness animation are over, however animation kept dreaming within me for those years.
Almost exactly after 10 years since my first flash animation, I had to do an animation test just to check if I can animate. It resulted into shifting me in animation/rigging division.
Animation test, it took exactly 127 hours to make from start to finish, look how I created it
Today, Im animating in films casting actors like Jessica Chastain (played in Interstellar and The Martian)
and even greated projects are comming.
I am really happy site like this was here, I always could share cool stuff I made.
I want to thank everyone who supported me and kept following my on my way.
I am glad you like my stuff I made so far, and even more art in all forms is coming...
