Animation is the illusion of movement. It doesn't matter how you pull it off just as long as you have a way of doing it in order to bring your characters to life.

MylesAnimated

2015-03-15 08:57:42 by MentalMyles

So I decided to create a twitter account recently as a way of trying to motivate myself but when setting it up, I noticed that MentalMyles has already been taken. After I settled with the username "MylesAnimated", I felt that it was high time I thought about changing my name.

The Origin

MentalMyles originated as a breif nickname at primary school where the kids in my class would play a pretend game where we were all serial killers working at a hospital, we would give ourselves a title which matched with our first initial such as "Doctor Darren" or "Janitor Jake" and I went for "Mental Myles". We only every played that game once because if I can remember correctly, the girls told the teacher who warned us never to play that game again (yeah, we were banned from playing a pretend game, the same teacher that tried to ban us from watching South Park...). Later in life when online gaming was only relevent to PC gaming, I would go for the name MentalMyles when playing games like Counter Strike and Team Fortress. Me and some people would play game regularly on at the Internet cafe/ Corner shop until I eventually got bored and noticed a guy watching Mario Vs. Sonic on this mystical site called newgrounds. I became a member in 2003 and....thats pretty much it in terms of where I got my nickname from.

The biggest problem I keep coming across with the nickname was always the fact that it wasn't ever apropriate for professional use. It looked really bad on a business card and it would leave people thinking that I may be a pshycopath.....which isn't completely wrong. Also theres the surprisingly common use of the name I discovered. the name "Myles" may be rare but I would be lucky if I come across a site where it hasnt already been taken.

 

Original and Best

So yeh, with the exception of Newgrounds I would be using the new name MylesAnimated on other sites. Why? Mainly because people around here refer to me as such and since this was my place of origin, I would rather keep MentalMyles as is on Newgrounds where it all began.

And yes, I am aware the Sam T. recently changed his name from Ebolaworld to Saminations which was why I decided to explain why I'm changing my name to save a bunch of misunderstood people accusing me of being a copycat.

Stay sexy newgrounds ~<3
