Name someone in the game industry you would like to meet in person. 

 

 

 

Andrew Pieper. AKA @TaleSpinner I love his realistic approach on animals.

The Komodo Dragon for example was a joy to paint.

Tom Meier. He was my first and has always been a favorite sculptor, but he also changed the course of my life in a sort of bizarre way.

And Erol Otus. I love that dude so much and wish I had a fraction of his imagination and style.

Aww, thanks! Be careful what you wish for, I may just show up someday with a bunch of dog minis and some treats for Brutus.

Sounds good to me!

 

Really I painted your komodo dragon, the cow and the goat.

Looking forward to paint the Goroloth and the Arakoth next year.

Oh, that's a pretty loaded list right there. But for just a few highlights:

- Tre Manor, because he's awesome.

- Bob Ridolfi and Julie Guthrie, after learning from a Reaper Live episode that they basically sculpted my childhood toys, I owe them a thank you.

- Patrick Keith, seems like a nice guy and I like his artistic style.

- Ronnie Renton of Mantic, for going toe-to-toe with the titan in the industry.

- Leonidas Vesperini of Mythic Games, because he looks like he genuinely enjoys what he does when promoting the games his company does.

 

I'd be content to have a 10-minute chat over a beverage with any one of the above, and several others mentioned.

since I've worked in the game industry, my bucket list of meeting people has been checked off.

 

A few Origins ago I checked off you and Brian from mine.

I'm honestly not sure. Years of traveling to gaming conventions and hanging out at game stores has brought me into contact with a bunch of industry people. There are obviously a lot more whom I haven't met, but I'm not sure who I would put on my wish list.

 

At this stage, I think I would much rather get to hang out socially with Industry people whom I have already met, but only see at mile-a-minute events when they are super busy. (I don't want to name drop, but it would be nice to get to hang out with people like @TaleSpinner at a time when neither of us have to be anywhere for a few hours.)

Kevin Siembieda comes to mind for both categories.

 

I've met him, and we were both perfectly friendly towards each other, even in the middle of certain crowd-funding... events. It was a side effect of meeting the Chuck Walton at Gencon. Chuck was super nice, and I am delighted to have a photo of the two of us together, and some of his original pencil art hanging on my wall.

Do you wear shoes in the house or take them off at the door?

Straight up Mr Rodgers protocol up in here.

This! Including the sweater... at least when the weather calls for it. During the summer it's apartment flip flops rather than shoes, but...

I wear my shoes pretty much constantly. This is due to a birth defect that causes one of my legs to be about 3/4" shorter than my other leg, necessitating walking on tiptoes on my right foot if I'm not wearing shoes. Coupled with the overall poor condition my feet have been for the past two - three years due to my generally bad gait and I have pain walking without shoes for much distance, even with a foot brace worn almost all the time.

I honestly don't follow the game industry that closely, so I don't know many personalities. I'd say "Wayne Reynolds" but I've technically met him already.

I take 'em off, but I switch to moccasins for inside. I learned a long time ago that stepping on Legos barefoot sucks, so I got in the habit of always having something on my feet

Pass.

 

It’s not that I don’t want to meet anyone in the game industry.  I’m just not sure how to behave around them and I don’t want to come off as a total loon.  Social anxiety fun times.  Yay.

So so many! All the talented sculptors including, but not limited to

 

Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi

@TaleSpinner

Jason Wiebe

 

Artists like Anne Foerster, @Wren, @Corporea and Angel Giraldez 

 

Basically, I just really want to go to Reapercon someday. It's not likely, since I'm on a different continent, but one can dream.

I totally get that! The times that I've accidentally ran into celebrities were much easier to deal with because my brain didn't have a chance to overanalyze everything and trip me up.

If they don't know by now, then they fail the "need to know" minimum standard. :lol:
