Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (111)
My Bio
I grew up in San Jose, CA, at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay Area. I got tired of the dry, and moved up to Portland, OR, where it's green and moist. I like temperate rain forests, so it's a good fit. I like the motto "Keep Portland Weird", too, although it isn't nearly as weird as that motto implies. I have a degree in Business Economics, with a side order of Mechanical Engineering, and Graphic Design for dessert, although I never finished all of the curriculum because I started my own business, and just didn't have the time. (There were two of us doing the whole suite of user guides for a medical laser company's entire product line.)

Up until recently, I was a technical illustrator in my day job. Now I am between jobs, and will probably end up doing something more graphic designerly. With most manufacturing happening in the Asian countries, there isn't a lot of technical writing/illustration required (one of the casualties of the United States' new "service economy"). :-/

Still, technical illustration is my favorite, whether its working from exported CAD files, or phototracing, or just holding the part in one hand while drawing it in the other!

Maybe not. The Expanse does a good job of showing battles at appropriate ranges. And Star Trek (TOS) did it the same way: you see one ship fire phasers, then see the phasers hit the target. You never saw the two combatants in the same frame.

As for your art: it's awesome. Keep it up.

Yes. I (and others) worked on the Epona Project from about 1993 to about 2000, with more content added later. Thanks for the compliment, by the way. We like to think that we did some pretty good work. There is some info about the project here: http://worldbuilders.info/
