Alright. I'm going straight to the explanation,so you know what you're getting into.
I'm looking for a Mentor to guide me and support me on my path to becoming a game developer(or somewhere along the long lines of the field...). It's a dream, really. Video games have given me so much happiness and lifted me through the dark depths that I've reached; that I just want to pass it along. I want to make other happy, and feel that sheer, irrevocable happiness of your hard work bringing joy to others.
The problem is, I'm 17. With a burning passion to learn. Don't see that too often, do you? It all started with an introduction to HTML/CSS. I found that it was an overwhelming sensation to put such hard work into something, and see the fruits of your labor bloom so eloquently before you. Granted, HTML/CSS is webpage language, so I did my research,and finally clicked my love for gaming, with the desire to make them. I know it's hard work. I know it's not for the weak of will; and that's all the more why I'm ready to start. However, it truly seems to be difficult, in the beginning, to break into something like this. Without guidance from someone with experience, I feel as if I'm simply going to meander about,without a truly recognizable goal in site; unable to understand exactly what's next to go. That's not to say I haven't looked up guides, but they're all so... off. So vague, or unexplained.
As for what I *can* do,I have a vivid imagination, a fiery passion to learn and work, a mediocre ability for art(if it should live, I can't draw it), good--or so I like to think--writing skills, and a sense of humor(that's clearly the most important part)! I don't seem to have much trouble learning code, and I like to think that I'm a fast learner in general. Hell, half of my teachers--in high-school,mind you-- seem to just let me fly free; confident in my drive for education.
So... yep. That's all I can think of for right now...I'm probably leaving out a lot.
But, that's that. With sincerest regards, and fingers crossed,
