1. I went to art school for undergrad, but work as a producer in games.
2. I own a dog... well, I don't. My parents do, but he's my baby and I miss him.
3. My favorite color is purple and has been purple since I first picked one. Although sometimes I wonder if it has stayed consistent simply because it's easier to stick to one than have to pick another?
4. I've played piano since I was 4.
5. I was great at math in high school. Then I sucked at it in college.
6. I can code when forced to do so.
7. I graduated grad school in 2010. Guess how old I am?
8. I used to love doing these thing via email when I was in high school.
9. I got in to games thanks to J-RPGs. But the first RPG I ever completed was Septerra Core.
10. I played Septerra Core with a page-by-page walkthrough I printed online. It was the only way a noob like me was getting through it.
11. I hated video games as a kid. Loved watching others play, but was afraid to pick up the controller myself. Questions sent
(why are your questions so much more difficult than the ones you got?):1. What is the thing you're most passionate about in life? That is, excluding relationships and obligations. This is the thing you most want to do with your life.
Fantasy and stories. And yes, it's vague. 2. What's the last thing you sat down to learn by yourself because you wanted too?
Skill-wise? A couple of weeks ago I spent a few hours trying to learn Visual Basic in order to manipulate this one Excel doc so it would push data to an internal wiki so I wouldn't have to do it manually. I had to stop after awhile b/c I had a meeting to go to.
I think my mode of thought is I learn things as I need them.
Learning about comic page layout, pacing, etc is an on-going thing. It blows my mind how Nobuhiro Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin) does action scenes, or how Takehiko Inoue draws his characters with a sumi brush. 3. What's something you always wanted to do but you didn't because it was difficult to learn, expensive, or time consuming?
Languages. I think it'd be cool to be able to speak the native language wherever you travel. But that's a lot of languages to pick up, isn't it?4. How do you usually use deviantArt? To promote your art, find friends, etc?
I post art, I hope to get feedback but I have no idea how to get eyes on what I post.
I've never been one to have online-only friends. It's weird when I've never seen the person face-to-face... guess I'm paranoid or something. 5. What's the job you'd like to have the most if you could create your own destiny?
I'd be Neil Gaiman.
Creating stories in all media.
Haha. I'd like to be successful enough so I could take vacation whenever I want and travel the world. 6. How do you usually spend your time after you've met all of your obligations for school, work, family, society, etc?
I hate routine. So something different is always good. 7. If there was one thing you could change about how you live your day to day life, what would that be?
I wish I didn't get tired so easily. I find a lot of those hours I sleep could be used elsewhere.8. What's the one big lesson that you learned from your life experience?
Don't get so paranoid about what others think of you or what you do. Do it for yourself, no one else. You'll find, especially in the internet-connected world, there's always a crowd who will share your interests. And even if you're not the best at what you do, being the best won't really matter because you're doing it for you.9. Why do you watch the anime that you do watch?
It's fun? I don't know. I kind of treat it like any other TV series, just with simpler emotions or more expressive characters.10. Why do you do art?
For creativity's sake.11. For question 1, 3, 5, 7: Why aren't you doing it? (If you are, then totally keep doing it)
1. it's harder than it looks.
3. That's a bit... unrealistic. Unless I spend ALL my time learning the languages. In which case, i'd have little time for anything else. And without practice, I'd forget them all too, so it becomes pointless in the end.
5. The starving artist alternative is very unappealing and has a higher percent chance. I'd like to be able to pay my rent and have health insurance.
7. I'm trying to be healthier. And my body says I need 8 hrs sleep per night.
