I feel like talking about old video games because... I dunno, I'm feeling nostalgic or something.  >_<
When people ask me what my favorite video games are, it always makes me feel really, really old.  Since my favorite games are the ones that I used to play throughout my childhood and early college days.  :p

I'm going to talk about my favorite games and why they are my favorites.  Feel free to add your favorites in the comments below. 

These are in no particular order since It's so hard to choose an order! They are all my favorites for some reason or another.

Eternal Darkness:  Sanity's Requiem
I've always been a PC gamer, so if I really love a console game, it usually is something special.  Holy crap.  This game was a console seller for me.  It's the entire reason why I bought a Gamecube back in the day!  Phenominal story, great graphics for the time, good voice acting.
If you're into Lovecraftian Horror, I highly recommend it, since it is Lovecraftian in everything but name!

Gauntlet:  Dark Legacy
For when I want some mindless fun just pounding enemies to oblivion!
I've played this game all the way through at least 20 times and I often do find myself going back to it even today.  >_<

Star Wars:  Knights of the Old Republic  (The Original one!)
Another game I've probably fully beaten over 20 times.
Just a fun little Star Wars game.  The little twist completely blew me away the first time that I played it.  :)

The Original Sonic Games for Genesis... especially Sonic 3
These games were my childhood.  >_<

Skyrim
I've probably logged more hours into this game than any other game I've played.  'Nuff said!

Afterlife
I... would be very surprised if anyone else remembers this game.
It's a fun little twist on the old Sim City style games.  I totally sucked at this game, but I always had fun playing it.

Arcanum:  Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Another game I'd be very surprised if anyone remembered.
A great fantasy RPG with steampunk elements.  The graphics were nothing to write home about, but so much fun to play!

The Sims 3
Well... all of the Sims games, actually. but I've had the most fun playing the third one.
Although I'm not going to buy the Sims 4 straight away.  I still have too much fun playing the third.

Roller Coaster Tycoon
Dammit, Jet!  You got my playing this game again!
I had a lot of fun building roller coasters and managing my own theme parks.
However, this game also let out my sadistic side.  I would build bobsled coasters that flew off hills, waterslides that landed the rider in a near bottomless pit and drowned anything that my little pinchers would pick up.  You want to leave my park?!  NO!  You want to drown!  MWAHAHAHAHA!

Star Wars Galaxies
I've played several MMOs, but very few of them could be classified as a favorite game for me.
I was playing this game almost from start to end... it consumed years of my life!  I miss iiiiiiit!

Honorable Mentions 
Neverwinter Nights
NiGHTS into Dreams (Both the original and Wii games!)
Black and White
Spore  (Yay creature building and space exploration!)
Plants vs Zombies 1 and 2
Mortal Kombat  (All of them!)


Also.. I have a feeling that Mass Effect will be on my favorites list after I finally get around to playing it!

Traci Vermeesch
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
A science fiction obsessed geek-ette from Michigan. I've been drawing and making up stories as long as I can remember. I don't really know what else to say about myself, so here are some random things that I love/like: Firefly/Serenity, Star Wars, gryphons, tea, parrots and other cute birdies, mythological creatures, the male form, art history, learning about different cultures and mythologies, space and astronomy, imagination and creativity, The Spoony One, musical scores, people who actually think before they speak, cooking, tattoos, cheesecake.

Dislikes:
Most anime/manga (sorry), potatoes, Oreo cookies, Furry/Brony/Whatever terms and lingo ('yiff', 'What the buck?!', 'fursona', 'pegasister', 'mate', etc...), atrocious spelling and grammar, art thieves, copycats, earwigs (they look like something out of my nightmares), people on the internet who act like entitled little brats.


I am....
* A colorist primarily. I do draw as well (obviously), but my skills lie mostly with coloring.
* A Fantasy and Sci-Fi Illustrator
* While most of my gallery is anthro art (95% of which is done on commission), I actually consider myself to be a science fiction artist above all else. Sci-Fi is my first love by far!
* I draw anthros/furries for the same reason I like to draw aliens and mythological beasts... because there can be a lot of creativity in the characters. I'm really not much of a "furry" since I'm not very involved in the fandom. I don't really consider myself to be one, but I don't care whether or not you call me one.
* I'm originally from Michigan, but moved to Canada after marrying my Quebecer husband. I'm now residing in Michigan again.
* Browncoat
* All around sweetie pie.

This is how I roll....
Some things you should know about me
* I am not a one-note artist. I draw a variety of things from anthros to humans to space art. Keep that in mind if you're thinking of watching me for one specific thing that I draw!
* I'm easy to talk to and very laid back. Don't be afraid to leave comments or ask questions. I won't bite. :)
* Although I don't respond to every comment, I do take time to read all of them and appreciate each one.
* I'm more likely to respond to an intelligent question or a well thought out comment then a "ZOMG! Awesome!" I don't really don't have much to say in response to one-word comments.
* Most of the work in my gallery is done for other people, Most of them are commissions or works I intend to sell. My goal for most of these pictures is to make the client happy. My personal work is very different than work I've done for others! For one, I don't put as much 'sex appeal' into personal work and characters.
* I'm not into role playing. I wish I was, but I just can't get into it.
* As much as I'd like to... I don't give one on one art lessons. I just don't have the time. I may go back teach art at my local community centers from time to time, though.
* I'm too old to argue with trolls. Don't waste your breath since I'll just ignore and hide any trollish comments.
* I consider this site of mine to be a business website. Therefore, 'douche-baggery' will not be tolerated here. Harassing, namecalling, trolling or just being a general asshat to myself or others in my journal or in my submissions is uncalled for and will automatically earn you a block! This is your FIRST and ONLY warning on the matter so play nice when you're on my sites.
* No. Seriously. If you behave like a total douchebag while you are on my site, then I -WILL- block you!
* Pretty much all textures I use are from CGtextures.com An AWESOME texture resource site. I can't tell you where I got most of my photoshop brushes from, since I have a big folder of freeware brushes that I use that I didn't keep tract of where I got them from. Sorry. >_<
* Gay and racial slurs are not welcome on my site, and if you use them here, neither are you. This is an art site, not the place for that.
* nocreepycommentsplz.

The bottom line... I am a ridiculously nice person. Unless you give me a reason not to be!

If you have questions or comments about commissions or other services that I offer, please send me a note rather then publicly announcing them on my front page since I consider such things to be private conversations between artists and client. The exception to this would be specials that I run in my journal or egg adoptables.
- DO NOT thank me for watches and faves. I don't want my front page filled with them. If anything, I should be thanking you for making such beautiful things.
- If you see a typo in one of my character sheets or other image that has heavy text, for the love all things holy please send me a note about it rather than publicly announcing it! I do fix things and I only hide trollish comments, so forever having it in my comments after it has been fixed really annoys me!
- DO NOT advertise contests on my page or leave comments asking me to buy something from you or look at your gallery. It's just annoying and it really makes me NOT want to participate/buy/whatever. I will ignore these comments and mark them as spam.

Hey there! I'm in charge of commenting on your profile for OC training task 10~

First of all, your art work was already at a very good standard since the beginning, and your confidence in it was an even bigger plus. However through the past few weeks, you have managed to express your character in very different ways and through your artwork, giving this new sense of flexibility.
Your character Deren was also already very developed before entering OC training, but through the past weeks, along with the art, you have expressed him in many different ways helping us understand him from different perspectives.
I believe your biggest improvement is the development and expression of Deren's character and personality~
It really has been inspiring seeing your efforts in every single drawing!
