Opening note: I'm also very much interested in making new friends here, so if you feel we might be pretty compatible friends, feel free to shoot me a message!
Hello there! I'm an aspiring illustrator here to see what kind of interesting (maybe even a little bit eccentric) people I can meet here. :)
What I’m doing with my life
My ultimate dream would be to become either a 3D modeler or
character concept artist in the game industry. I was always
fascinated by the idea of breathing life into characters/creatures
from my own mind for others to experience, and in such a fashion
that they would be able to take control of them and interact with
various other ideas in a completely imaginary world. It's
definitely a tough field to get into, but I'm still keeping at it.
Currently, I'm looking into networking and submitting my portfolio
around to various game studios in hopes of being hired for the
aforementioned positions. In the meantime, I'm working at a
warehouse to hold myself over.
I’m really good at
- Drawing. As far as talents go, drawing is by far my strongest
skill. I can also paint, but that may be a distant second,
- Being there for my friends when they want/need someone to talk
to. Even if I can't necessarily help you solve the problem
(depending on the situation), I am always more than willing to help
out my friends and listen to what you have to say.
- Coming up with insane ideas for amusement's sake.
- I guess I'll also add that I'm really good at just being myself.
I consider myself to be a genuine human being and you won't see me
trying to be someone I am not.
The first things people usually notice about me
To be honest, I'm completely oblivious to this one. Someone will
have to tell me one of these days haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: The Winery Dogs, Richie Kotzen, GnR, Slash's Snakepit, Silvertide, Stone Temple Pilots, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Keys, The Police, Muse, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life. I'll admit I have a habit of analyzing and sometimes
over-analyzing things - must be some obsession with trying to
figure certain things out. I consider myself to be very open-minded
and am willing to hear what other people have to say, taking a look
at the reasons for our differences in opinions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sadly I work late shifts as of right now, that most of my fun/hangouts happen over the weekend.
While we're at it (and not necessarily on Fridays) some activities I enjoy are: billiards, kayaking, paddleboarding, indoor rock climbing, bowling, eating out, movies, relaxing and listening to music, sketching down new ideas/concepts that come to me, video games, and card/board games (especially "BANG!" :) ). This isn't to say I'm bound to these activities and that I'm uninterested in trying new things, but they're usually what you'll find me doing. Have also really been wanting to start having spontaneous city exploration days (anything outside where I live) over the weekend. Thinking that'd be a lot of fun!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a sucker for romance. When I can find an excuse to do so, I love coming up with romantic surprises for that special someone. I also thoroughly enjoy doing creative things for my closest friends. I'm a believer in the idea that the most flattering gifts are homemade, as you can customize them to celebrate the individual you're making them for.
You should message me if
anything I've mentioned interests you or you have any questions. I'd be happy to answer them and talk to you. :) Again, always interested in making new friends as well!
