Greetings fellows, i am known as Klomster to most.
I have a problem though.
I really want to make games, and by make games i mean knowing how to best approach my game idea, what platform of creation i should use and have someone who can teach me how to do things.
So at the moment, i have a really cool idea, a sort of revolutionary fps game (i know, they all are in the commercials, but this is rather different)
The problem is, that the only things i can do is come up with looks of different factions, background and draw some sorta good looking concept art for them, i feel that i can easily project my idea towards, perhaps a 3D modeller and get what the style of the character itself will be.
I have tried 3ds max, but i've run into problems i don't really know how to explain, and solve, but have created a model that at least looks somewhat human. But it needs tweaking.
I can also work some basic ideas through photoshop, i can edit pictures to some extent, and dramatically change how a picture is composed. But not very neat in my opinion, an i need some extra work to get it pretty.
I have the ability that in an instant, come up with a whole setting, and then flesh it out with extra content over time.
So you might see my problem here, i have passion and an idea. But no means to create what i want.
I'm sorta halfassed about everything, i can make some models if i set my mind to it and someone helps me iron out the problems. It won't be the best models though unless i practise.
I can make photoshop things, but nothing heavyweight.
I have a bad habit of giving up on things too, if i run into a problem, the project can severily crash and burn, even if it is a really simple problem that if i knew what was wrong, and someone told me personally how to correct it, i would be fine.
I guess what i want is a private mentor, or someone who would like me as a concept and story arc designer.
Know any such people? Preferably in northern sweden
