I'm here to offer dedicated and motivated beginners a method to provide their, what will be talents, into something productive. The idea is that a group of beginners from a variety of computer areas:
programming: c++, java, php, actionscript
design: art, photostop, character modelling/animation, map making
concept design: concept art and design, etc
sound editing: music, voices, effects, etc
come together to hone their skills. A group that becomes close knit and comfortable with sharing tips and helping each other
and inevitably can use their skills developed to produce something of production quality.
I myself am a beginner, dabbled a little in programming, but mainly 3d design.
The only requirement I'm looking for is that each person has at least completed 1 tutorial in their area of choice. However, this isnt limited to beginners; intermediate and advanced users are welcome.
The creation timeline is looking at, 1-3 months to gather the respective people. 2+ people per area so that they can help each other learn. 1-3 months for gathering ideas, deciding on what to design (game, web site, media). The rest will determine on how quickly each person is proceeding in their education.
If I do get enough support here, enough people interested, I will be creating either a channel on IRC, or a forum, (and of course Instant Messengers) so that we can communicate as a group.
For the meantime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
