Hi ! I'm Artist-Programmer ?

edited August 30 in Say Hello!
Hello !

My name is Dorian, I am 23 years old, Born in 1994 and French.
Autodidact in the soul.
I'm more Artist than Programmer (but I'm learning).

I am passionate about all forms of art, especially digital and multimedia.
Adoring the videos games and especially since I played my first FPS (Unreal Tournament at 10-12 years in mutli, I find it completely fun)
And even more so when I discovered Quake with that physical non-standard!
I also about 5 years at least on Urban Terror that I find far more cool than CS I hate.
I test all Arena / Fast-FPS or Old School :)

In short I have always been attracted by anti-conformist things.
And often have desires / thoughts to have been born before.

Audio (8 Years of Experience *)

I listened to sounds complex and repetitive when I was between 8 and 12 years old.
Mainly in the underground electronics genre. (Techno, Tribe, Hardtek, Hardcore)
Then start creating music in 2009 towards 14 years with Audacity and FL Studio.
Over time I have perfected myself in order to create and experiment in various styles.
I love mixing noise / glitch / chiptune / IDM with ambient / drone psychedelic athmospheres.

I have no limit, I have rejected it incessantly.
- Working with a slow or fast BPM (Tempo) (between 10 and 999, see more)
- Composition with noise (sound card)
- Various recording of my voice (singing / speaking / screaming, beatbox and whistles ...)
- Program a logical sequence of codes with IBNIZ (http://pelulamu.net/ibniz/)
- Use of Loligo (http://vanjacuk.de/loligo/)
- Play acoustic guitar, flute, melodica, djembe, harmonica, piano
- Circuit / Data bending (game boy color, radio and toys for children)
- Improvised Techniques, MIDI, Granular synthesis, Tracker and others.

Graphics / Level Design (7 Years of Experience *)

For 2D
I start making small editing using Photoshop with http://www.renders-graphiques.fr/
Then I learned the basics of Pixel Art as well as Digital Painting.
Some creations based on the vector rather than matrix.
Although I am not a real draftsman, I sometimes try to take a pencil / pen and a paper sheet from time to time.

- I now use software like Krita, Photofiltre, Inkscape, Pixeluvo
- Intensive use of filters and layers!
- Composition as with audio for a very psyche rendered ^^

For 3D
I know how to use Wings3D to create low poly objects as well as the UV Mapping technique

-Exploration with GTKRadiant (Urban Terror,PK3 extension) and Unreal Editor (Unreal Tournament 99)

Programming (6 Years of Experience *)
This really was a chaotic journey for me.
The reason is that I love reading everything and I quickly lost.

- Start with batch scripts about 15-16 years old.
- Wanted to learn C ++ with IDE Code :: Blocks.
Without success, far too complicate.
Particularly because of the OOP paradigm. Nevertheless this allowed me to have some bases.
- Learning of concepts with SDL / SFML / OPENGL libraries.
- Passage to the Python language that I did not like.
- Disappointed and discouraged, I have a good time.
- Much later, I resumed some tests with LÖVE and the language Lua.
- A little BASIC.
- Real advancement and good comphresention with Processing, https://processing.org/ (Based on Java) and (https://p5js.org/ for Javascript) !

Search for bugs/glitch in video games: https://github.com/hawkthorne/hawkthorne-journey

And to finish my Youtube link: www.youtube.com/user/MrLoubiTek
That shows FPS / Run / Jump and Bugs/Glitch.

In the future I would like.

- Learn Raylib =D Re-learn at the source !
- Make more Videos Games or Demoscene/Prototype
- Create maps (wad) for Doom. (Then why not Duke Nukem..)
- LiveCoding for Audio-Visual.
- Mastering concepts related to AI / Algorithms / Maths / Physics.
- Know the OOP to help me design and develop (Game Design/Pattern/Mecanic).
- Compile with DJGPP for DOS.
- To know the Assembler a little to reinforce the global comphresenion.
- Create Arts in general again and for Forever !

  • Hi Dorian! Welcome to the forum!

    Wow! What an impressive resume! You've done a lot of things! :smiley:

    Let me know any question about raylib (or games dev) you have!

    Best luck in your journey! :)
  • Yes, I would not hesitate to ask questions!
    And thank you!

    I forgot to mention Shadron: https://www.arteryengine.com/shadron/
    That is a very useful software to see shaders directly in real time. \0/
