A concept artist or illustrator (like splash arts and stuff). It’s only an internship, I totally forgot to mention that ;n; But, it MIGHT turn into a job, so… whoohoo?
So I applied to Riot Games..
and ike, I don’t know what to do now… other than wait… and hope it’s good news D:
Mom tells me I need to call my dentist to confirm an appointment and sends me their number.
I call it and it’s some random guy.
Alistair: Describe something someone could do to make your heart melt.
I dunno. You know me, I’m not real big on romantic stuff. I just like staying at home, watching movies, playing games, that kind of stuff. I’m super simple and kinda meh when it comes to romance haha.
Mabari: Tell us about the dearest pet you’ve ever had.
Seriously? You gave me this one? I’ve had 5 dogs and 5 cats and you expect me to pick just one? If I had to choose, I’d say Max and Kieko. I’ve had each of them since they were born. Max was always a big snugglebug and just loved playing fetch and being outside and being with people. He had a huge fear of everything that wasn’t in his immediate family, but he was still a good boy. Kieko’s just a fat ball of fluff. He was hit by a car when he was maybe a year old, and now only has one eye and probably brain damage. Despite that, he’s still super fluffy and occasionally decides it’s time for you to love him. Then he’ll get distracted by something, then something else, than another thing…
Wynne: What is your definition of a good life?
Good family, comfort, doing what you love, and just be generally happy.
Varric: What is your favorite fairy tale?
I’m just gonna go the Disney route if that’s alright. Not the Grimm Tales, and not the super original fairy tales even before the Grimm Tales. Just the standard disney version. I’ve always had an attachment to Mulan. I don’t think it’s anywhere near the original poem, but, you know… I just really like the story!
HA! I hated living in a shared flat in university and unlike most Americans I know, I had my own room with an ensuite bathroom. Still- people can be infuriating so I get that. Also the console thing is probably the most adorable thing ever.
It’s really hard to tell them to stop being loud and obnoxious when your RA is a part of the problem too. I don’t mind my roommates as much, but everyone in the common room can just go home.
And yeah, Dad’s always got me with consoles. First he borrowed a Sega Genisis from his friend and gaveit to me (the console that started it all), then the N64, then for Christmas he bought me a Gamecube controller and game, we went through all the presents, and no Gamecube. He told me to look behind the couch and lo and behold there it is. I still have no idea how he got it there without me noticing .-. And then as a graduation gift he bought me a PS3.
Fenris: What bothers you?
Uh, everything :3
No, not really. Let’s see, what’s bothering me today…? I hate it when people are loud, obnoxious and otherwise annoying. Like, in a public setting, a cafeteria, a sports arena, a store, whatever that’s okay. But I’m in my dorm, and there are people in the common room (which is about 5 feet from my room) who are soooo freaking loud. And then there’s one guy who keeps jumping down the stairs and shakes the whole dorm. Like, where have your parents failed you?
Merrill: Do you like history? If so, what culture are you most interested in?
Yes and no. I enjoy history, it’s pretty cool, but I am soooo bad at history classes. As for which I enjoy, basically anything that isn’t American History, because all that is is “Britain and America getting into a slap fight” and then ‘America and America getting into a slap fight” and then “America pisses off the entire world by existing so it gets into a huge slap fight”. I want it to be “America needs to calm the fuck down and realize it sucks a lot of dick”. For what I do enjoy, specifically, I enjoy Mideval Japan and Europe, Ancient Greece and Egypt mostly.
Sebastian: Do you think revenge is a reasonable solution?
Had you asked me this a year ago I would have said yes in a heartbeat. For now, it’s either a no, or I don’t know. Everyone wants revenge at some point or another, but it just eats at you, and it’s never really satisfying. I just let karma do it’s job.
Shale: What is your earliest memory?
Uh… The first thing that came to mind was playing street hockey with my younger sisters? Though a time before that, my dad took me to the store on my birthday and bought a Nintendo 64. He told me it was for his office, and, being like, 6, I believed him. We got back, and he gave it to me and I was just so dumbfounded. He always manages to surprise me with consoles, now that I think about it….
Riot finally released all of the information for interships next summer… and like, I don’t know how to feel.
I had a mental breakdown last night thinking I wasn’t good enough, that I still have a thousand miles to go with my art, but I still want to apply. This is what I want, and Riot’s been a great goal for me.
They want a cover letter, my resume, and… well, my summoner name. The only thing I’m confident in sending is my summoner name. My resume is kind of thin, and I have no idea how to write a cover letter.
"Hey, I’m Andrew. I wanna be at Riot because it’s my dream. I have like a lot of Character Designs for champions that are pretty alright if you guys need more fanmade stuff. I also want you all to teach me how to art.
Here’s my portfolio and I run a small League Tumblr blog called Newbs of Legends.”
There it is. That’s my cover letter.
And then there’s the extra stuff they aren’t telling us about yet ughhhhhh (I’m guessing for art it’ll be design a character or something… at least I hope so, because I have those).
But then I remember if they really like me this could turn into a job and I could have a stable foundation once I get out of college and ughhhhh….
Needless to say I’m a wee bit nervous.
So I won a contest over at lolking.net the other day (like, a month ago w/e) and I finally received my prize. The prize was any video game from the store G2A.com. I would have prefered a simple League merchandise, but I decided to take a look, and the only game that really caught my eye was Tomb Raider.
Honestly, I expected to get it, and not play it until I built my gaming computer, but I was bored so I gave it a try. And you know what. It might be laggy at points, and really really low quality, it plays great! So far, I really really enjoy it! I’ve never played a Tomb Raider game, but I think me and Laura are gonna have a lot of fun together!
If the game doesn’t rip my heart out, of course, because god damn it’s actually really dark.
I’d just like to apologize to any of my non-League followers (and hell, even my League followers) about the over abundance of League spam. I promise that I am done for the day, and will not post again unless I do something really really awesome.
Good day to you all.
So I uploaded Gilus to Facebook and this was my mother’s response.
I finally realized where I got my sass from.
