Favorite color What am I, a child?
Favorite number 2147483647
Favorite animated show Dragon Ball series for sure, but the Avatar series (ATLA and Korra) round out the top 3.
Favorite non-animated show Probably Game of Thrones, Modern Family is really great too. House gets an honorable mention.
Favorite movie Not much of a movie person, idk.
Favorite video game Probably Battlefield 4 since that’s all I play, but in terms of nostalgia there’s Tomba 1 and 2, Spyro, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter among others.
Favorite food I don’t know, tacos? They’re good. Mini hotdogs are pretty good too. Oh, and sign me up for boneless buffalo wings any day.
Ralph started making Stick Nodes one day because he was bored. He grew up practically addicted to a stickfigure-animation program called Pivot which sparked his interest in both animation and game development.

Eventually he got into Flash animation and Flash game development. He released quite a few games into the Flash gaming community, check out his portfolio for links.

Once mobile devices started taking over, he moved over to attempt Android games. After a few failed attempts, he released Plunder Peril – a quick 2-3 week project that was meant as Android-development practice.

After Plunder Peril, Ralph began work on Stick Nodes and in August 2014, Stick Nodes was released on Android with the iOS version following in November. Stick Nodes is built in Java with the LibGDX framework and uses RoboVM to port to iOS.

Sean is the site administrator and creator of the stickfigure submission system as well as a majority of the DBZ stickfigures. He also has a funny accent.

At around age 12 he discovered Pivot, ended up on Droidz.org looking for stickfigures to use in his animations, got fairly good after about 2 years.

He decided to make a website to host his animations on after having been on the forums for a long time. That’s what got him into webdesign since the first iteration of his website was a terrible looking flash-based thing that at the time he thought was the best thing out.

After a while he realized how stupid it looked and behaved. So he looked into HTML and CSS, got it looking slightly better but it wasn’t until he found WordPress that it started looking decent.

After that he went off the grid for a bit, got his Cert IV in IT and Webdesign, cemented his understanding of the internet protocols.

Lately he’s been helping out around the Stick Nodes community and has been managing Animation Alpha. He’s also been looking into game development and has begun a project that he hopes to finish one day soon, he can’t really reveal anything about it but it’s for mobile devices and will be a 2D sidescroller.

Days random things.

I broke one of my favorite ps2 games yesterday, it was DBZ Budokai tenkaichi. I’m not really into DBZ, but the game is really fun.
So, since it’s broken, I bought it’s sequel in my “retro” video game store. The game originally costed 4.85€ but I paid 4€ instead since I’m good friends with the shopkeeper. Plus, he gave me a Titanfall 2 shirt for free, which is really cool.
So I went home, plugged my ps2 in and played the game. And this game is 10 billion better than the first one, cuz you can transform into super sand on the battlefield instead of choosing which form you want on the character menu. Also they explain the story a bit better in adventure mode lol.

Why am I talking about this? Maybe because Ralph likes dbz and I would totally destroy him on Budokai Tenkaichi.

I am also a fan of Dragon Ball.

It’s quite the delicacy.

Also anyone would destroy Ralph in any game ever.

And Sean magically comes out of nowhere.

Ralph only knows how to play Battlefield, yet I have doubts.

Mini Onehighjump stories:

So for our computer lesson we learned about cyber bullying (A.K.A: Bad to Cringe) and empathy. So the first, FIRST picture I see is a girl crying or whatever with text boxes like THIS: “NO 1 LIKES YOU” and “I’LL RUIN UR LIFE” and “I HOPE U DIE LOL” with a pink highlighter. F’ING PINK. Then the next thing is “Describe in one sentence what the girl is doing” So I write “(How’d it change pink to yellow?) Face palming” Which is the correct but the teacher deletes it. Next question is “Have you witness someone being cyber bullied” And no I did not see “Somebody” Get cyber bullied but I have seen people get cyber bullied. Then the cringe. The ultimate cringe. She wants us to make an animation using *Epic drum roll* GoAnimate For School. F’ing GoAnimate for schools. You want to kill us don’t you. And of course I am forced for this poor soul…Help I want to say. But I create it while cringing then we finish computer and leave. Also we I also seen a paper with someone’s name saying “Jasper Cox” F’ing brilliant. Well by F*ck ta-

GoAnimate omfg it reminds me so many weird times back in 2008. Oh man you made my day with one single word.
You should have made a riot and say “LET’S USE STICKNODES” instead of using that bootleg program. Like how do you even GoAnimate, this thing has no soul, so are the characters you use on your animation.

Just a thing that I thought about for a while but Ralph, What if you were to add built in backgrounds into the app? And I don’t mean like an image, I mean a background that you can edit an everything. But if you were to make a background and upload it as a stick figure it takes 1 of your 20 figures. Could you add an option or button for that please? Or don’t and just explain why?
Btw I’m kind of new to the site.
But I’ve had the app since last November.
