I enjoy crafting things well and well crafted things. I enjoy all things for what they are. I especially enjoy a good tale. I hope to be involved in creating some interesting games design in the future, but at the moment I'm just as happy to apply my skills to a good team with an interesting project.

quick blog update

I've recently attended the Imagine Create Festival in Derry. Firstly I must commend ImagineCreate orginisers and the speakers for coming together and doing this. It was a fascinating experience that educated me greatly into the workings of developers and studios and the relationships of the various departments in game and film production. I learned alot about the processes involved in the design and production of a movie and a game, from insightful and well delivered presentations. Check out these guys; James Foster, Craig Mullins, Phil(lip) Campbell, Greg Maguire and Doug Ikeler.I only wish I found out about this event sooner, so I could have gotten in the first day, and so as I could ask them some good questions and/or prepare some work for their perusal.

If theres anything that has been stressed by all the speakers, is the costly nature of production. The faster you are at doing whatever it is you do to a high standard, the better chance you have at success. Also, getting your foot in the door of the entertainment industry, anywhere, will get you experience that you can use. These are obvious truths, and by the speaker's testimonals, keep them in mind!

Artist lf mod team thread post

I've had a change of heart. I withdraw my request to get involved on a project. People have inquired about numerous related aspects of modding that I have little knowledge of. So little that being an additional team member I believe that I would contribute to chaos, only impeding the team's performance. In order to become in any way useful on the mod scene I have alot to learn. To that end I have drawn out a list of what I need to do and I'll get on it in my own time.
Thanks to everyone who got in contact with me. I wish everyone the best in their modding endeavors. There are alot of talented artists out there so it shouldn't be difficult to get someone else to fill the gap.

I am interested in joining a game/mod team with a strong focus on narrative/plot.
I enjoy playing well written and visually appealing games - I'd like to be a part of making one.
Mod teams that are making tidy, clever mods using all their own content turn me on.

{edit} At the moment I'm looking for smaller active projects

I can draw, paint and sculpt (clay, plaster, wood, metal).
I can edit images using Adobe Photoshop CS 2.
I can edit film using Adobe Final Cut Pro
I have dark room editing experience with 'black & white' film.
I have some experience with Audacity.

I have access to a scanner, stills camera, video recording equipment and sound recording equipment.

If I can be of assistance in the creation and realization of your game/mod please drop me a line and I'll get back to you via PM.

{edit} here are some sketches I had lying around.
