I'm a 2D/3D artist in the video game industry. Currently I work at Telltale Games as one of their Cinematic Artists. I view being an artist as a profession of continuous learning and passion. For every one thing I get good at, there are two things I need to learn :la:

I live in the San Francisco area, I'm a huge gamer (whenever I have the free time), and I love to mountain bike and swim. Over all, I'm just a big kid ;-P

Being Me Online And Cheeky TwitchCon

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 22, 2015, 12:59 PM

:battleShip:  It's funny, when I was trying to come up with my handle for gaming on Twitch/YouTube I already went through a few ideas.  Ones that I had actually used at one time or another.

When I first jumped on YouTube I was a bit leery of letting people know who I am.  Truth be told, working in the video game industry can be a bit weird with outside interests in the same area.  So I tried Blurrification and Spawn Point Podcast.  Both I thought were interesting, but more about not being me, then well, being something tied to me.

So when I started on Twitch, I wanted to start anew, but with something that would be tied to me for as long as I'm a gaming personality.  That's when I came up with "TheOnlyRyann." Having two "N"'s in my name has always made me easy to find on Google, it has separated me from other Ryan's at work or school, oddly enough was a point of being teased about when I was younger, all over just an extra "N."  We all want to feel unique, that there is only one of us.

The funny thing is, I still get crap from people about the name :D When I jump on chat in Twitch, I'll get someone named GasOil9000 saying, "My name is Ryan too!  So you aren't the only one!!!"  (most think the extra "N" is either some form of L337 speak or a typo)  So now I'm just getting cheeky about it as I'm going to TwitchCon.

Here's the sticker I'm making:

Anyone else have any tongue-in-cheek suggestions for my online handle? :evillaugh:
Totally down to hear them!

For the next Charity Event, I'm looking to raise $10k total! (from the 3k I've already raised) I dyed my hair pink last time, what should I do if we reach our goal this time? 

6 deviants said Shave head? :ohnoes: (never have done this before)
1 deviant said :O_o: Bleach/dye facial hair pink with a re-dye of my hair?
1 deviant said OTHER (please comment) :la:
No deviants said Eat a Habenero Pepper?! (I'm a horrible wimp when it comes to spice, this would destroy me)


PINKCharity by IMAGINeye

Yep, this happened! I personally raised over $3k for charity, so a promise is a promise, and hair went completely PINK! :wow:
People who like old school point-and-click adventure games need to try the newest King's Quest!
Holy crap :wow:
I got into PAX Prime! :la:
This will be my first time going!!! :faint:
