I've been drawing since at *least* 2nd grade. I do have a Deviantart: http://skaiano.deviantart.com/ but I've actually only uploaded the more digital stuff, I got cases and cases of hand-drawn stuff that'll be much more interesting to share! As far as my pixel art, you can probably just surf through my twitter, as I tend to update my progress frequently there: https://twitter.com/skaiano/media Hope you all like what you see, and I hope to share even more in person!
As far as my favorite games, I think I'm most into the classic Namco stuff. Galaga's a classic, Bosconian is a TON of fun to just sit down and play, and Dig Dug is just a surreal type of masterpiece! I'm into more modern stuff as well, over at the .GOG sale I just purchased every cRPG known to man pretty much, more RPG content than I could probably cram into a year!!! Which brings us to JRPG's, they're great as well! Dragon Warrior Monsters was a childhood favorite, I absolutely love the job system in FF3 on the DS, Suikoden had some great dynamic in combat, and the Breath of Fire series is just a wonder to behold in both art-style and gameplay. I emphasize JRPG's because that's the genre I'm currently developing at the moment. In the wake of RPGmaker's "2014 Indie Game Maker Contest" (which sadly I missed due to sickness D: D: ) I got a "secret project" brewing that involves that engine... anyway that's all for now! xD
Have not been to convention yet. ): PAX sells out quick yo, QUICK. I have a relative that heads down to AKI-Con, and it's always neat to see the cosplayers on the Light Rail when Sakura-con comes around, but no. I've never had a chance to go. D: Maybe that'll change one day? xD
I'm an artist and gamedev, I mainly do a cartoony style along with some pixel-art! Though I mainly just do solo projects, it'd be cool to finally start reaching out and meeting people with similar interests / hobbies!
