From 1994 to 1996 I worked for a PC game development company called Capstone in Miami Florida. I created characters, maps and environments for Witchaven, Witchaven 2 and Tekwar as well as a couple of ill fated projects.
It was the best education I've ever had. I learned how to build and fix computers. I learned to use 3D Studio and a lot of other advanced software and was exposed to a whole new world of computing. Oh...and I met William Shatner.
Here are a couple of characters I created.
