My goal in life is.... by BlazingBlueflash My goal in life is.... by BlazingBlueflash
You've probably gotten this question once or twice in your lifetime. You could have heard it in an interview. Your parents could have confronted you about it one day out of the clear blue. It was maybe gracefully slipped a piece of paper during class by your teacher. The question...

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I answered "To become a one-man army", proclaiming it as a do-or-die rather then a dream. It may sound vain to some, but in times the only person you'll ever be fully reliant on will be yourself. I don't want to lose sight of what I want to be in life.

"I want to do everything in my power to stake my claim in the gaming world."

In class we were issued a project. It was to create a collage featuring 10 pictures we could either make or find off the internet. The goal was to show an even better question that rang through my mind.

"Why did you want to do this in the first place?"

The answer was unclear to me. I've always said I wanted to see Majic in games, but as a nothing more then a sonic fan character he wouldn't make it far. I have no super talent of drawing exactly what I picture. I can't use photoshop amazingly like most. I'm too lazy to do almost anything because I feel that forcing myself is a hassle. So, why did I do it in the first place if I felt all of this anyways?

.....I decided to change how I felt about myself a long time ago. It has to start somewhere, and it starts from square one. I will do all in my power to change the way my life is curving now. As disney quoted long ago..

"I could hope that we never lose sight of one thing......that it all started with a mouse."

Its disgraceful to see that the slogan the great Walt Disney himself made is now trampled to death. But the point of it was to say that it started with just that one guy. That's what I want Majic as....my spark to an ever growing flame that will rival even the best of them.

I've made my own slogan of why I wanted to be a Game Designer. What I want to do with Majic in the future. Why I wish to be someone of such a grand caliber.

To not only create a game of excitement, but a tale of enchantment.

Majic is no longer a sonic character from this day forward. He'll have his sonic counterpart, but he's not a sonic character anymore. Wanna know something else? This picture with Majic in it now....isn't really Majic yet. I'm in the process of changing Majic into what I can have as my very own. This is just one of the many looks i've made for him. I'm kinda feeling it!!

That's all I got to say everybody!! I hope you enjoy this picture, because more will come in time. See yah!!

You and i share the same goal. Except my side is from a manga to a movie. Keep working and you'll reach your goals!

I hope the best for your Manga then!! America's side doesn't really appreciate it though, and i'm not talking about the anime fans but the society. A lot of americans disapprove of it because it has a generic styling unlike its former starting in the old days. Since its almost anyone that can draw it they tend to not care much for it.

I know of a story at my school. There was a gaming conference called "Intergrate" or something close to it. It had people from famous game companies there looking for new talent. One guy, who's been drawing Anime and Manga style all his life decided to give it a shot and present his portfolio to one guy. The guy opened his folder then directly closed it back. He then only flicked past the many pages with his thumbs and proceed to close the book....he later turned it to the side and ripped everything in half.

Unless your hoping to move to Japan, I suggest you bring in something new to the world and make American Manga as a claim to any fame.

Meh. America is a shit-hole for dreams if you tell me. Yes, I'm hoping to move to japan cause i was expecting America of being that way. But what that game guy did was totally uncalled for. Even if manga is a bit stale, it's the story it holds that counts. >.<

Thank god, because these are the kind of games I always look for but can never find, lol
And my goal is to bring other people's as well as my own imaginations to life through illustrations and concept art. The world of games included. :thumbsup:

And Oomph, Majic is looking goooood, even though it isn't quite Majic yet, XD

That's a great goal Melly. I know, if I don't make mines, that you could. I really enjoy your styling and your interests are very wide and interesting. Its refreshing.

Artists use any means acquirable to get that sense of personal satisfaction. Its a drive, and it'll take you to some of the farthest reaches.

Thanks!! But, I need good opinions on his later developing. My friends still think he looks like a sonic character. And after the recent poll I posted about his current look in that picture, most claim him as very close still. That means I gotta work harder. I love a good challenge XD.
