I think most games these days are lacking in everything but pretty graphics and the game itself is seemingly forgotten about.I would love to be a part of making a difference in the industry and at the very least, have something for my resume to help me get paid work (but who's to say I couldn't continue to help with such projects as this in my free time).Interests and Hobbies:Comics (reading / creating)Video games (playing / designing)Reading books (novels and skill development)Watching films / documentariesCommunity:deviantART; Smackjeeves; Gamespot;Favorite Games:The Age of Empires seriesThe Metal Gear Solid seriesThe original Assassin's CreedTotal War: Shogun 2Anno 1404 (AKA: Dawn of Discovery).... So basically: strategy and stealth games (although, I'm more a fan of historical / mythological / fantasy stuff than modern / Sci-fi).Work Examples:http://marchodgson.w....com/index.htmlA lot more work will be added soon (in the next month or two), including character animation for a student game project.Also, some illustration work: http://occasionalheroics.smackjeeves.com/comics/ Edited October 29, 2012 by Khopesh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
