    Hello Maplemation! I'm Nineb! I'm 16 and I have always been a fan of maple/sprite animations ever since I have seen the first entry of "smash the wall" back in 2009. When I saw its latest entry earlier this year I told myself "That's it! I want to be an animator!" I tried to learn as much as I could about flash and bought macromedia flash 8. At first, I was confused... and then I discovered Derek's (aka spritefan2) and project revival's tutorials and I was able to make my first animation here:
    I had so much fun animating that after finishing it, I already wanted to animate something else! And thanks to the advices I got on my first thread, I improved a lot more! I hope that I can become as talented as everyone here! Thank you for welcoming me!

    That's a lot of content for someone who just started animating. Not many people start off by making 2 minute long animations. If you keep that passion up, you'll go far here. Feel free to ask me anything if you need help regarding animation or just stuff on the forum. Enjoy your stay here.

    Welcome to Maplemation! Saw your animation, and I can tell already that you hold a lot of ambition and seem really dedicated. I have no doubt you'll go far and develop vastly if you stick around, continue sharing your work, and learn from what we have to offer. Definitely make sure you hang around the Maplemation Discord as well for more direct feedback and to just chill out with us. I look forward to seeing you around more, and I hope you have an excellent stay.

    Welcome to Maplemation! Linking an animation with an introduction is great. That's pretty rare, to be honest. Hope to see more from you!
