If you're thinking what I'm thinking, get help.

Hey everybody, I'm your newest (at least for now Tongue) member! Been lurking for a while now, and I thought I would go ahead and register.

And to ramble on a bit about me.  Grin

I've been programming a little over five years now. I started in VB 6.0 in college, and I made a ton of games back then. I eventually got into the VB gaming community, making a few games and writing a few tutorials. I also was co-leader in a large online group writing an RPG in VB/DirectX. We never finished it, though. Tongue

About a year ago, I started getting really interested in Java game programming, but a few slumps between there and now have held me back. I have yet to finish one game in Java. I'm hoping you guys can help me "run the gauntlet" in that respect.  Wink

Oh, I'm also an artist. Much better at that than at programming. Go figure, eh?

They say all great artists are insane. I'm not saying I'm a great artist, but I'm certain I have what it takes.

Welcome Smiley

>Oh, I'm also an artist.

That's an advantage. You don't need to be the programming god himself for most finishable game projects. Good art and a consistent style is much more important in that case.

Yes welcome. You must be the first in a while, with 1 post, that isn't a spam bot or maybe you are a nextgen spam bot tricking us, building up some confidence with some initial normal posts Tongue

Hey man.  Enjoy your stay at the boards. Smiley

Heh, we are like opposites.  I'm a programmer that would like to be a better artist. Sad

After dabbling around in 3D for over a year, I'm back to programming again.  I like to program, but I like to do art as well.  Problem is, my art is mediocre.



OK!  My art sucks. Sad

It's time to prove to your friends that your worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying; sometimes that means killing a whole lotta people.

Thanks for the welcome everybody Grin

DrBizzar0, I'm not quite a nextgen spam bot. I'm something far more annoying, I'm afraid. Tongue

Virum, try not to feel so bad about your art. A lot of it has to do with practice. Some people are naturally good at it. The rest of us (me included) start at crap level, and have to work our way up. I've read a couple of art skill development books that read, "we have about 10,000 bad drawings in us."

With some guidance and a ton of practice, you can get better. Of course, if anyone wants to use my stock art or would like some pointers, that's cool too. Smiley
