Well, it looks like i don't get to be an animator after all --:( thanks to that old chesnut, the old boys network. Dang. However, all is not lost cos i just found out an old friend of mine is working for another video games co in Brighton, so i might just give the 'network' a shot!
In the meantime, I'm off to work for an insurance co as from tuesday, where people will phone me and tell me all about their accidents. Unfortunately i'm not allowed to laugh at them.
Anyways, the point of this meandering post is to say a great big CHEERS!! to everyone that helped me out with the interview and stuff. The whole experience has got me right back into making quality art again. Hopefully i'll even have something for the fan art thread soon...
lots of virtual hugs,
Tanky x

During my recent frantic job hunting attempts, i've managed to score an interview for a local games developer's art department. Go me! However, i'm a bit nervous cos i haven't animated anything since i was at uni. My old showreel is in a shocking state, being 5/6 years old and done on 3Dstudio. Unfortunately i have no decent graphics software on my pooter either, or cash to purchase with. I still have plenty of storyboards and most of my coursework.
So. What i'd like to know is: what should i be working on? what should i take to my interview? And do i have a hope in hell?
My interview is a week today. Please help me get a really cool job! Many thanx and much luv, tanky xx

Off Topic / where did all my cash go??!!

Hey guys, me again!
I seem to be suffering from the traditional travelling cash crisis! I'm currently in san diego and have about 100quid left!!! Then i got a call from o2 saying i had a phat phone bill and there gonna cut me off. To add a bit of adventure i'm having terrible trouble changing my ticket home. i'm not too worried, just don't wanna use the ol credit card if i can help it!
Still, on the bright side it's lovely here, v sunny and there are many many cool people. Also (thankfully) it's very cheap to eat and keep a roof over one's swede.
So, i guess i'll be back in bloody portsmouth soon!
Still having a great time, luv xTGx

News / Tanky Update!!!

Hey everybody! Hows it going? what did i miss? Hope yer all playing nicely. Anyways, just a quick update...I'm currently in Coffs Harbour and heading up to Byron Bay this arvo (ooh, get me!) where i'll hopefully be spending about a week or so drinking beer, visiting the peculiar little legal hash town of Nimbin and lying around on beaches. Yaay!

Since moving on from Melbourne, i spent nearly a week of solid debauchery in lovely Sydney, chilling on Coogee beach and mucking about with a boogie board by day and drinking til 4am. Ouch! I also acquired some stupid english sunburn. Ouch x2! Couldn't do the bridge climb this time unfortunately due to it being shockingly pricey and having a bit of a waiting list, but i'm DEFINITELY gonna be coming back at some point, so there's one for next time!
From Sydney i did an overnight stop in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, where much walking and photography was the order of the day. It's verrrry pretty up there, once i get me photos done, i'll try an post some. Since Katoomba i've been working me way up the coast, stopping in Newcastle and Coffs Harbour, which brings us up to date. I've only got about a week an a bit left in oz, then it's on to middle earth, erm, New Zealand!
Have fun me darlins, xTGx

So, have fun one and all
Til next time, take care of yerselves aaaaand each other!

Well, it's out and i got one. And suprisingly good it is too. Yuna's angels indeed! I love it, most of the grown men here will probably hate it! The costume changes and platform bits are there, as we feared on the 'advent chidren' thread, but they work quite well. Platformy bits are very basic and won't piss you off (so far), costumes are part of the development system and work the way that jobs do in FF11. A bit of a handful (arf!) to start with, but it does keep the battles flowing nicely. Not much to report yet so's i don't accidentally spoil anything, but just thought you'd like to know! Anyone else played?

Help! / Hewligan's Haircut: Should I?
« on: 14 February, 2004, 12:04:33 AM »
Hey all! I notice Hewligan's Haircut has been released as a GN. As you may have guessed, I'm a bit of a Jamie Hewlett collector but I 've never read this story and i've heard loads of Very Bad Things about it. So what i'd like to know is: Is it really that bad? Why? And should i get one?
