Hello
« on: January 21, 2004, 09:53:28 PM »
Not sure if I ever introduced myself here, so here it is.

I'm an illustrator from North Carolina looking to get into comics or creature/effects design.  My major genre interests are fantasy and horror, but a good sci-fi story never hurts.  I guess a little about my tastes...

Favorite RPG system:
GURPS

Books:
"Perdido Street Station" and "The Scar" - China Mieville
"Conan" - Robert E Howard
"Drawing Blood" and "Lost Souls" - Poppy Z Brite
"The d**nation Game" and "Everville" - Clive Barker
The "Dune" cycle - Frank Herbert
Asimov's Robot stories.

Comics:
"Poison Elves" - Drew Hayes
"Hellboy" - Mike Mignola
"League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" - Alan Moore
"Transmetropolitan" - Warren Ellis
"Kabuki" - David Mack
"Sandman" - Neil Gaiman

TV:
Anything by Joss Wheadon, especially Firefly.
Babylon 5
Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet and the History Channel

Film:
The Howling, Altered States, Labrynth, The Dark Crystal, Fight Club, Dark City, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Dragonslayer, Romero's Dead Trilogy.

Okay...I guess that's enough crap about me.   :twisted:

"D'ARR!"

From above, a loud whistling sounds, and a massive reinforced barrel crashes down into the lawn. The reinforcement bands hold for a few seconds until buckling, and the entire set-up explodes, unleashing a tidal wave of foaming green liquid. A small figure rides the tidal wave outward and tosses Gottgen a frosty mug of foamy, salty, bubbly, green grog, filled from this very wave of the stuff.
The figure is a penguin in a ridiculous pirate outfit, complete with tattered jacket, floppy wide-brimmed hat, massive feather plume, rose-lensed goggles, and a wooden toy sword painted gold.
"Yarr! The reinforcement bands didn't work! Curses!" he says, and turning to Gottgen, "Yer' a man after me own heart, yeh' are! Welcome teh' th' Citadel!"

Ah, Dune!!!! Have you read his others, like the Santaroga Barrier, the Dosadi Experiment? I would DEEPLY advise this if you haven’t. Frank was a genius. I’m new here, but hi.

Bah! The Dune books beat any of Herbert's other books, hands down.
I'm reading the Conan books right now. Fun, aren't they?

Welcome.

"What!?"
"You just grabbed the sword of the god you were just personally responsible for banishing from the world for the next ten thousand years. You just got zapped by around a billion volts of Angry Divine Power. You're dead."
