I'm a 20 year old game design student on my way to the gaming industry. My main focus is design, but I also program in java and C#. Animation isn't so far out of my range either, though I've never done it before I'm willing to sit down sometime and get a grasp on it.
I don't play too many video games anymore, but when I do it's mostly League of Legends or Gears of War on the xbox 360.
Where I want to go or what I want to get out of gaming is have a job making them any way I can. Whether I'm working for a AAA company like EA or Epic or be an indie developer, if I can make video games for a living I can die happy.
Last week I got my HUD designs approved to be finished, then took on the task of designing the Main Menu and its functions. This week I focused more on the drawings of the functionality of the main menu.
Looking at it now, its seems pretty simple but it took a bit of feedback and revising for it to get to this point. And once again, since I am no artist, I only used a photo from an existing game as a reference for a template to lay out my designs(being the text/font/graphical placement and style).
