Blimey mate, you might be able to start a business on the side charging a fee to draw people's characters that send you a description. Seriously! I'd pay to have my character drawn up so I can put it on my form at the very least!

Then you'd be able to tell "work that gets in way" to sod off! :gtfo:

Think about it mate... Think about it.......... :pimp:

Personally, I can't wait. Sounds great! I hope that the picture is NOT the bathtub "hung like a goblin" scene. I use other Internet sites for those kind of pictures! :wink:

Meh, now I know your in your twenties----you haven't been working professionally long enough to have learned that everyone is replaceable. Six months after you leave, they'll "update" the website and it will have a new look & feel based on the 'new guys' design.
:sew:

j/k

But seriously, all great career moves start with that first step. All you have to do is check out the map at the bottom of these pages to convince yourself of the diverse audience you have on these boards (being just one example). Ever go to GenCon in Indianapolis Indiana USA? They have gaming artists there all the time! Now I'm not saying quit your job tomorrow and expect to make a living, but you'll never be able to make a living doing what you love until you start doing it---i.e., build a network of clients and charge a fee for your services.

You could probably make a killing if you were to start applying your art skills using a computer medium--that way you could 'reuse' previous characters altering them slightly instead of starting from scratch. There is a great web comic artist I know of, Scott Kurtz of Player Vs. Player fame (http://www.pvponline.com) who wrote a book and has excerpts for artists who want to get started doing web comics and computer artwork. Here are some links to whet your appetite:
Main Comic: http://www.pvponline.com
Podcasts with some instructionals: http://halfpixel.tumblr.com/
Group Scott works with podcasts on 'the web art business': http://www.halfpixel.com/
Scott's "How to Make Web Comics" book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co..._pr_product_topSome quotes to wrap things up:

"Do; or do not--there is no try." :yoda:


Think about it mate... Think about it.........:pimp:

Being from Detroit, let me close by quoting Henry Ford: "If you think you can do it, you're right. If you think you can't do it, you're also right."

I wish you the best of luck! Make the right call on this--the last thing you want is to look back on this 10 years from now and regret not at least trying for the dream. If not now, when???

I haven't finished listening yet, however on the subject of moving into an invisible creature's square. I had to do some searching but I found the answer in the Errata on stealth and invisibility.

You have to combine 2 parts of the errata to get the whole picture though.

1st

If an invisible creature is hidden from you
(“Stealth,” page 188), you can neither hear nor see it, and you have to guess
what space it occupies. If an invisible creature is not hidden from you, you can
hear it or sense some other sign of its presence and therefore know what space
it occupies, although you still can’t see it.


This means if the creature isn't making a stealth check to actively hide, then everyone knows what square he's in. Therefore he must be making a stealth check to hide in addition to being invisible.

2nd

2nd

Enemy Activity: An enemy can try to find you on its turn. If an enemy
makes an active Perception check and beats your Stealth check result (don’t make a new check), you don’t remain hidden from that enemy. Also, if an enemy tries to enter your space, you don’t remain hidden from that enemy


So to conclude, if said creature made a stealth check to be hidden and invisible, when someone enters his space he's no longer hidden (but is still invisible) and the player knows there's something there. The movement does provoke an OA but the creature is still invisible until and unless he makes the attack.

Wow , Steve posts on the site after they say he hasn't posted in a long time ! ! ! Cool , can't wait to hear your voice again when you visit Hal and Linds' across the pond .

Secondly - ALL HAIL NYESS ! !
First of all , I say that 'cause you are the most compelling character . Always interesting to hear , and lastly , Thank you for using my curse , " Rachmaninoff ( sp ? ) Funny how the phonetic pronunciation was a topic of contention . As far as I was thinking , it was " Rock-mahn-in-off "
I digress . Keep up the good work . It's always so much fun to hear you all .

the funny thing i am currently 28 years old.. and have been working for Kawasaki for about 6 years now, as a mechanical Engineer/ designer. (designing trains, motorcycles etc.. ) i totally agree with you on the aspect that companies really don't care about individuals. something similar happened with the website "update".. which i found funny.. (you must be a mind reader.. lol)

but i also own a Dojo, and currently teach 5 different forms of martial arts. so sometimes it is hard to find the time to draw.. but i would love to create images full time.. hopefully one day i will be able too. :)

yes i have been to GenCon a few times, as an artist.. (i was working for a few different companies as a freelance artist. battlefield press, Malhavco etc..

i am very familiar with Scott .. he is a very talented artist, and i really enjoy his work. (met him a few times) i also enjoy crtl+alt+del. that is another great online comic..

but i agree with you. when graduated collage, i was hell bent on becoming a concept artist. (mainly for movies, or video games.) but for some strange reason, my father ended up pushing me into the field of engineering. (don't get me wrong i have done some work on the side for a few years now.. but not enough to call it a living.)

thank you so much for the vote of confidence, and all the advice! because of such, i am going to send Hal a bonus image today! i hope you all enjoy it!

I've never seen art in a Malhavoc product that wasn't exceptional (is that an oxymoron?), so now I too am eager to see your work.
