Hi, I'm Jennifer P.
I played my first Myst game (the Myst Masterpiece Edition) a year or two ago, and I found it surprisingly enjoyable. Since then I've gotten part of the way through Riven (I'm stuck on various puzzles there at the moment and don't have much time to work on them nowadays, alas!) and part of the way through Uru Live (not enough time to finish, again). I like puzzles, mysteries, and beautiful scenery, but even more than that I like MAKING puzzles, mysteries, and beautiful scenery!
I have practically no 3D modelling skills at the moment, although I am learning OpenGL, a C/C++ polygon graphics program where you have to make your own interface window in code before you can draw anything. My first serious project (created last week
) was a linking book against the starry (there were 4 stars, if I recall.
) void. The book was perfectly rectangular, and incorporated 5 (yes, five!) different colors in its design. In the linking panel could be seen a blue sky and a white triangle which obviously depicted a snow covered mountain. This breath-taking masterpiece is the limit of my "3D" (it was a *cough* 2D pic in 3D space) skills for the moment. But I do know some C++, at least. I draw well and can do just about anything at a realistic level (although not always in color): animals (my favorite), plants, machinery, buildings, etc. I normally use pen, pencil, and colored pencil, because they are the simplest and cleanest to use, but I know Photoshop fairly well and I'm alright with computer graphics programs like Illustrator--although hardly an expert! I'm also very interested in languages, both created and real. I like to create my own scripts for fictional languages and I could create a language from scratch if I had a reason to. Finally, I enjoy writing, and can do multiple types: scientific, fiction, humor, essay, journals, etc. I can also make up storylines, scripts, and plots for IC Uru Live events, and do Uru Live acting.
At the moment I'm a concept artist for Ages of Ilathid (which I would love to have as part of Uru someday!) and I work on Uru storylines as part of Subterranean Restorations. In terms of scientific knowledge, my specialty is geology...so I'm always like, "ANOTHER giant crystal Age with glowing crystals that create energy from nothing and have impossible powers? How unrealistic!"
(My apologies to the fans of giant crystal Ages)
