I was tagged by
to fill out a simple list of questions. I suppose I've got nothing better to do, so I might as have a go at it.
1) Pencil or Ballpoint Pen for drawing?
Mechanical Pencil. I like not having to worry about keeping a sharpener handy.
2) Do you like school?
It all depends on who's teaching. I only enjoyed attending the classes of the teachers that were all around cool people.
3) Do the Aesthetics/Visual Graphics of a Video Game matters to you?
Sure, graphics are important and many a game has won my heart by it's art style. But I have strange graphical standards. For instance, a FPS of this day and age better have good graphics, because it's basically the same gameplay that we've had since the first FPSes back in the early 90s(shoot badguys, maybe capture some flags). But I won't be looking for such high standards if the game actually manages to create a unique and truly memorable experience. Ideally I want to play a game that's so immerse and engrossing that I don't even notice the graphics.
4) Are you an self-taught artist?
Yes and no. Yes, because I've never taken an art class in my life. No because I've been taught everything I know by fellow amateur artists on the internet, mainly by drawing alongside them in online drawing/chat boards.
5) PC, Xbox 360 or PS3?
6) Your favorite quote?
Too many to list. But this is the first one that comes to mind: "The Americans spent millions of dollars to develop a pen that will write in space. The Russians, use a pencil."
7) Stealth or Guns Blazing?
Both. I prefer to use stealth to analyze the strengths of the enemy before leading a quick and decisive assault to eliminate them.
8) Your favorite TV show?
Stuff on the History channel, mainly. Dogfights, Battlefield 360 and Patton 360 were all good ones. They all had good animation teams too, as they would depict realistic ranges and formations, giving you a real sense of how things went down. That new show, World's Greatest Tank Battles doesn't do that, they depict the battles like they were all playing command and conquer or something, it would be a horrible show if it wasn't for the interviews with the veterans.
9) Your favorite Movie?
probably Snatch. Or the 5th Element. I don't like a lot of Hollywood movies.
10) Your favorite firearm?
Whatever is in my hands at the time. But, if I had the choice, I'd probably go with the M14.
11) Do you like been tagged?
No. I hate it. Which is why I'm not tagging anyone else.
Anyways, If you're bored and looking for some time to blow while doodling. Try doodleordie.com. It's like the old Broken Picture Telephone game, except filled with internet trolls. I warn you, it can be addictive despite the trolls. Recently I've had a sudden influx of people giving me "likes" in my gallery, so I guess people like the stuff I draw. Here's a link to my gallery www.doodleordie.com/profile/re…
And for those of you who found me one way or another through Dwarf Fortress related stuff... If you've got some time to burn and don't yet know about this, here's an old MS-Paint adventures style forum game I started ages ago involving everyone's favorite long eared, tree hugging hippies: www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.…
(You can see how my art improves as the updates progress. heh.)
I'm getting the hankering to work on it again because people keep bumping it.
