**4-5-12: This little bio is old, soon I'll be writing up a new version, but I've been very busy in Indy Game development working with Mercenary-Games.**

Well I consider myself a Meight, (it's a Five Star Stories term for mecha creator, among other things.) My dream job would being a mecha designer for anime, or even manga. hopefully I'll get to make a living off it.

my mentor (though he doesn't realize it) is Mamoru Nagano. to me, he's a huge inspiration, he's a writer, a concept artist spanning many different design fields, and a musician, and i find his diversity empowering.

i started off drawing evangelions in 98... (more or less), and did so till '06 cause i was frustrated that i couldn't express myself. so studied gundam and then in summer 07, i decided to study Mortar Headds, and found a gold mine of info that could not be found in books... or at least, none that i've seen.

i love japanese mecha... i think it's become a problem XD. i see a robot and i want to play with it. too bad they cost pretty pennies XD. personally, i like to joke about it and say i'm a mecha junkie. seriously i LOVE mecha 83

Current Residence: Berkeley California
Favourite genre of music: metal, and alternative
Favourite style of art: mecha, Mamoru Nagano
Operating System: OS X
Favourite cartoon character: Slappy Squirrel

Journal History

Things sure have slowed down almost to a complete stop for me, much of it relates to my moods and how my body has been feeling lately.

Since June, I've been getting more and more anemic, and it's been hard to do anything. Writing, Drawing, Playing + Writing music. All of it has gradually become uninteresting and gives off little liberation. My health also isn't what it used to be, and I think once I get the money it's time to get some things checked and straightened out...

In conjunction, there has been good things in the summer despite the lack of accomplished works, but rather than naming them I can name 1 inhibitor, I purchased Natural Selection 2 for 75% off (~$7) and have been hooked on it for some time, not only is it very fun, but it takes time to master cause of it's steep learning curves and I've been going to bed at odd hours.

I've been keeping my eye on a local Indy-Gam-Dev studio and I'm gonna try to get into that, but for now I'm keeping its name hush-hush. Their game is far from the usual stuff I do: Anthromorphy with Martial-Arts. And not the usual, Hyper-Humanoid, Sexualized, or uber-Cute anthro stuf (which doesn't appeal to me,) but a far more serious tone and with culture. I have a variety of great ideas in the works, but lacking the drive to get them done at the moment.

I have been drawing here and there (clearly), but only when the mood permits. I have been designing a transforming tank for one of my other stories (it hasn't been uploaded yet), but again, I left it to the wayside for completion.

So... There has been a wrench-in the-gears for me. Progress has slowed down cause I'm really lacking the enthusiasim and gusto, and I'm not really sure when I'm gonna get back to the swing of things. Sooner than later is my guess, maybe around November I'll get back into drawing cause I want to burn off this gaming-marathon (LOL it's like my old D2-L.O.D. days!! 8E)

I'm gonna be looking into that new "food" called Soylent, created by Rob Rineheart cause the feedback from it is exceptional, and I think it's something that I've been looking for and been needing.

I apolgize for the let-down.

Things have been rather mellow in terms of Art, however today I got a job designing Mecha for Sector 13 Studios! 83.. SOOOOooo Expect a lot more Mecha -FINISHED Mecha in the coming weeks.

It's been a little hectic at the homestead, as well as my day job, but that's nothing new.

How about you? =D

LOL. I've got a ton I like too, but I haven't made a top 5 yet XD. Thank you for sharing =)

Oddly, the only Tri De Colus MHs I like is the Berlin. I'm not really a fan of the Engage Octavers, or even Junchoon. Something about their style doesn't appeal to me.

The Auge is good, though I tend to prefer the MM Auge.

Yea, the Mighty Beta is pretty sweet, but I think I prefer the old Bang Doll to it.

Where did you read the rest of the stor? I have all the english books, and I can only find incomplete scan-lations on the net for the equivalent of book 27 and I'd really like to finish the story.

MM Auge rocks!:D by the way, there are 27 chapters?:o I thought there were only 26--[link]

Nope, there's more. Like 2-6 equivalent for english readers, cause I think there's 2 more japanese books, which is roughly 2-3 english books.
