Interview & Forum Feedback
Elwin Bachiller from Skyguard, recently hired to CIG.
Q1 - 24:10 - Sirphasm - First of all, your skills & ideas truly impressed me, I thought right away "this guy should work for them (CIG)". Glad I was not the only one thinking that. Now that you're on board, what are you working on? And what do you wish you'd work on?
A: Can't tell you exactly what working on right now. Putting finishing touches on one of the variants. Redone the turret for constellation, Engines for the M50, some paneling.
Q2 - 25:44 - BlackJack21 - What (if any) science fiction artists have inspired your work. And has that influenced any of the work you have done in SC.
A: Yes. Karanak of Team Troika, before the competed in TNGS. Hobbins. Todd Lockwood, way he works with colors.
Q3 - 27:38 - Mr Bump - What has been the biggest change for you since going from a fan and a backer entering TNGS, to working for CIG?
A: Moving to Santa Monica. Went from wanting stuff fast, to wanting to slow it down so things aren't going so fast. Now has a bigger appreciation for how complicated and how much work each one of these ships really are.
Q4 - 30:49 - AngelusRex - What alien race ships would you find an interesting in modeling?
Can't say any (ship) names. But Xi'an are really fascinating. And really wants to work on the 890 Jump (bonus answer).
Thanks the fans for the support throughout the TNGS competition.
Sexy sexy boxes... and an Idris! UEE Banshee looking good.
