Halloa.

"I think, Sebastian, therefore I am."

I'm a Weaver of Creativity, and love everything to do with the arts. I'm hoping to become a published artist, and writer; along with working with my art group, on graphic novels, music, films, and other projects, as well.

For fun, I play video games, namely almost everything by Nintendo, as well as fighting games; Soul Calibur, and Tekken, by Namco - and another old time favourite: Castlevania, by Konami. I also like to watch old television shows, and old movie classics. My taste in music is generally that of '70s-'80s, along with beautiful music, such as Irish/Celtic, medieval, and classical symphonies.

Someday, I hope to become a freelance artist, and be able to draw concept designs, and promotional artwork for video games; other than the games my art group plans to design someday.

...I'm also a replicant, known as Pris.

I'm writing a series based on the Manjitou of both Soul Calibur, and Tekken; featuring our beloved Yoshimitsu, and of course, his faithful Manji clan, including Soul Calibur's Ukon, Sakon; and my custom created character, Shadowmitsu (or Sha-mitsu, as Yoshi-san calls her, which is her birth name,'); along with Kunimitsu, and an unnamed male Manji member, for the Tekken stories, which are currently under development, at the moment.

Currently, I'm working on two stories for the Manjitou Soul Calibur series; along with working a third, which will be a team project with my brothers. I'm currently working on getting a homepage up for these series, as well as in honour of Yoshimitsu, and the Manjitou; with the help of my brothers, whom are also big Yoshimitsu fans, too. ^_^

You could all just call me Pris, though; even if my screenname is taken from my homemade character. :P

welcome to YOT "Sha-mitsu"!!!! HELLO!

yoshimitsu8861 : welcome to YOT "Sha-mitsu"!!!! HELLO!

Thankyou. :) It's nice to meet you. ^^

Hehe, someone else's been watching Blade Runner, too. :)

Welcome aboard!

Yours cruelly,

Hey Pris!

Welcome on board! I´m impressed by all those projects u have going on :D
Have u got a deviantart account or could u show us some of ur work? I´m really curious about it.

And please keep us informed about ur Yoshi projects, sounds like it´s gonna be cool ^^

Working on video game designs, whether places or characters is also a dream of mine XD
That would totally rock. I´d love to add my own Tekken character to the series for example hehehehe ^^""
Thinking about a good story, moves, clothes, habits of the chara...

Hey, have u got one of those boards (dunno the name) on which u can draw on and it´s pluggend into the comp? :D

drawing yoshi concepts/ pics?, post them here at YOT!!! thatll be verrry cool!!!

Welcome Sha-mitsu! you sound like a fun creative person

yeah! and, a freelance artist! very nice!

Welcome, Sha-mitsu. :) I hope that soon we'll have the pleasure of seeing your arts. :)

Hello and welcome to YOT Pris;

WOW you certainly are very ambitious and have a LOT of projects going on right now, it's impressive. Is the straw holding tight? X)

I like watching old tv too, (How far are you going back?) and like just about anything traditional or that has a bit of history to it. I get some kicks when watching Eddie Cantor, laural 'n' hardy and I LOVE watching various old cartoons and Laugh-O-Grams. Ahh.. Those were the days when tv taught a moral - If not propaganda LMAO. My fav artists are Max Fleischer and Walter Lantz <-- Kudos to him!!! :P


Sha-mitsu:

COOL! I did something like this once, I made some concept sketches of game characters and a map for a game company (ATD 'Rollcage Firebugs') and had my own level and in credits n all that.. On that note, I hear how people want to work 'inside' on games all the time but working inside on the actual games isn't as pretty as most people think. I've been in and seen the studios. (Unless they think it's ideal to work on the same game for up to 3 years sipping on coffee all day stuffed in a hot room full of computers is great.) :s

Anyways, I've read everyone's fan fiction on this site. I am most excited looking forward to reading yours! :D

Yo yo welcome to the Manji clan.

Another artistic one I see. I'm getting jealous of you guys, wish I was artistic lol.

Kogamitsu : Hehe, someone else's been watching Blade Runner, too. :)

Welcome aboard!

Yours cruelly,
~ Kogamitsu

Oh yes, I love Blade Runner. :D Roy Batty's my hero! ^_^ And I can definately relate to Pris, with the eccentricity, and childlike mannerisms... I'm quite the strange one, I suppose. :P (And it's rare for me to have a character to be able to relate to so much, lol).

Gattsu : Hey Pris!

Thankyou, I'm glad I have my brothers, and friends, to help me out with those projects, hehe. :)

Yes, I have a dA account, one for my fanworks; and one I share with my art group - I think my original artwork (which I've been working on recently) probably shows the... erm... best? (I really do not want to sound arrogant)... umm... the most potential, I'll say, of my recent artwork... because it takes me days on ends to finish colouring now. X_x

I'm not sure if linking to them would be allowed? :O

Okayies, I will. :) I currently finished one chapter of a story... I'll see if I can post that up sometime soon (am I allowed to? Gosh... I ask too many questions, mm? :P)

Yes, it's fun to work on concepts... I'm still trying to get the hang of backgrounds - so far, I think that my brothers have been most impressed with how I colour/draw... wheat... you know, the gold fields on farms; since I've used that for a couple of backgrounds now. :P

Anyhow, I'd love to see your Tekken character, as well as read anything about them that you may have already written. :)

Yes, I have a tablet... a Wacom Bamboo, I think... and it's very nifty. ^_^

yoshimitsu8861 : drawing yoshi concepts/ pics?, post them here at YOT!!! thatll be verrry cool!!!

Okayies, I will - don't worry. :D One of my brothers is probably the best at drawing Yoshimitsu; although, I'd like to draw more Yoshi-san myself, too. ^_^

Yoshimattsu : Welcome Sha-mitsu! you sound like a fun creative person

yoshimitsu8861 : yeah! and, a freelance artist! very nice!

Tenshimitsu : Welcome, Sha-mitsu. :) I hope that soon we'll have the pleasure of seeing your arts. :)

Thankyou, I'll try to post some things here, if I may. :)

I always try my best with holding up with my creativity, and inspiration; but sometimes, that's hard with the stress of life, and the weird weather we've been having... it's like it's summer early here. X_x

Most of the projects aren't online at the moment - my brothers, and I, are still working on revamping our website (webserver has a blasted virus, so we're moving that soon :X,'); and most of our projects are on the old family computer's harddrive, but that computer... umm... melted in the fire we had last November (which was the start of most of the stress; but I do not want to go into that).

Umm... pretty much anything on Turner Classic Movies - such as old Sherlock Holmes movies, Dean Stockwell movies (he's a great actor ^_^), and various other things, from black and white, to early days of colour... do you watch Gunsmoke? (known as Gun Law, in the UK, I think... Gun Law was a title my group took for one of our film projects, too, actually, hehe ^^)

What game did you work on? I'm curious about checking it out... is that the company you worked with? ATD 'Rollcage Firebugs'? I hope you don't mind me asking so many questions, hehe. ^^; And I would mostly like to do freelance - I don't think I'm much for committing (longest I would imagine working on a project, would be... erm... a year, or so; but I'm not entirely sure how it works).

I did write one chapter of a story, and am working on the second chapter of that said story... I fell asleep after two paragraphs, would you believe it? :P But then again, to be fair; I've been tired, and sick... bloody virus going through the house again. X_x

Grey : Yo yo welcome to the Manji clan.

Another artistic one I see. I'm getting jealous of you guys, wish I was artistic lol.

Hehe, don't be jealous! Be inspired. :) Besides, anything that one puts their heart, and soul, into - is an art, in it's own right. :) Forgive me, I'm partially Native American, so I believe strongly in everything having it's own spirit, as well. :P

Anyhow, I want to thank all of you for the warm welcome (and apologise for this long post X_x), so... thankyou all. :)

Oh, I have lost a lot of creativity through stress. Now I don't know what to do with a blank canvas - I just sit and stare at it.. then get browned off. I'm gradually losing the ability to paint and draw. :( I'm sure soon this will all change. :)

I don't remember either titles 'Gunsmoke/Gun law', but I just checked it out on Youtube and I think seen it and have watched them with my granddad once or twice. Westerns are quite rare on terrestrial tv, but I'm definitely drawn to it. I will be watching more of these shows. :3

The game company is called 'Attention to Detail' located in Warwick, England. The game is called 'Rollcage Firebugs' for PS1. I won the opportunity through a playstation magazine. Though, I think really making concept sketches for games is generally an inside job (Don't take my word for it), as they like to save money and use staff to do their spider-grams and all that. But you can be freelance on company logos (I've made ?100s on 30 min doodles) LMAO. Also I think concept sketches for comic characters are more or less freelance too but I'm not %100 sure...

I used to fall asleep at the computer all the time. Was bad for me, and contributed to the mindless/creative less state I am now. Take a break! :)

Stress is really not good for creativity... it's an absolute killer on many levels. :X Anyhow, I'm trying this thing; where I'm going to be taking music - songs, lyrics - any sort of inspirational themes, to try to make artwork, stories, projects inspired from those themes that inspire me... which is actually how I got started on my current Manjitou story - I took a song, and used it for inspiration; although, you probably wouldn't even be able to tell, unless you were familiar with the song, because I did not write it in the typical 'songfic' style. You should try something like that, it could help - like paint while listening to a song, or with a certain song in mind (or any subject at all), and hopefully that could produce some creativity of the moment. :)

I just use music as an example, because music is so powerful, and inspiring. :)

Heh, I really hope you're able to get into Gunsmoke/Gun Law - it's a real great show, has made some history in it's own right, and I've been a big fan for a few years now. :D Which reminds me... have to get back to watching the DVDs, or even finding time to just turn TV Land on... erm... except I got to check the schedules - last I heard, Gunsmoke was playing at a different hour than what I was used to. :X

I'll definately be sure to check that out. :) I think that's quite neat that you won the opportunity through a PlayStation magazine - so, was it fun? Tough? What kind of things did you work on? and did they drastically change any of your concepts? :O ...there I go again, asking too many things. ^^;

Bad thing about working on my laptop late at night... laptop's right next to my bed, and I don't even have to get out of bed to work. :P So, I was writing, I got to the second paragraph... then I rested back a moment, to take a break, and was thinking to myself, 'I'll just take a break... while Yoshi-san runs through my computer files... and I'll just... zzzzz..."

LOL. :P

Bumm.. I wrote a long reply to this and got signed out. X|

Yes, music and background noise does help a lot *Remembering school* hehe! Everyday was an art class for me lol. I do occasionally doodle images I see in my dreams or what happens in my fantasy world (That seems to be drifting further away from me). But doodling is cheap, it's not real art.

I like how music stirs my feelings, like when I drew; my 'Yoshi peace' (Which looks so much more better in real life) Located in my fan arts. I was constantly listening to 'Return to innocence' by Enigma. Can you see how the song had an influence on that picture? hehe ^_^

It was about 6 or something years ago. (really feels longer)I was 16-17, and am the youngest person in the world to participate in the design of a game. I had my say about the appearance of some of the race cars, and the complete design of my own secret level. Tinkered and toyed with studio equipment - learned about every thing's purpose and the peoples jobs; Sooo much, that I found out how they made the sound effects of the cars' engines!: An elongated sound recording of a fart! LMAO Can you believe it??? :D

Thank you for your interest. :)

Could you tell more about your team and projects? what is your style of art i wonder? :)
