Pixel Artist Interviews (nvision)

on: June 08, 2006, 04:19:47 pm
Pixel Joint will now be featuring a new pixel artist on a regular basis (at least that's the idea) featuring some work, an interview and a bio.  For our initial launch randomblink interviewed nvision. Check it!

http://www.pixeljoint.com/2006/06/08/1766/featured-pixel-artist-nvision.htm

If you would like to nominate a pixel artist to be featured in the future or if you have any questions you'd like to see asked in future interviews post them here or PM me.  Thanks!

Can I suggest keeping a short leash on the "..."? =) It is a good tool to get people talking in an interview, but when you use it every time you say something, it either sounds like you are trying to create false suspense, or you have ADD and keep wandering away from the computer ;)

Very nice interview =D

Also maybe the interviewer can contain the 'oh yes, x thing, mmmmm, I like!' not that I mind, but it would upset a chit-chat type interview and derail. Over msn or something I guess it's not such a big deal. Generally, let the one being interviewed do most of the talking.

I totally agree with both of you.  I actually cleaned up the interview quite a bit (it WAS an instant messenger interview), but I will make sure to further edit in the future.

Edit:  I did take out some of the "..." and took out some of the interviewer comments.  Thanks again guys!

I noticed that the background color was starting to fade out the text as I stared at the story for a long time. Perhaps increase the font-size or change some colors?

I nominate Monsoon2d for the next interview! Gustav, if you can get him, too! Sals will probably have many interesting things to say, as would supergoat!

It's looking really good now, sedge =)

(the text-on-bg colors don't bother me but I can see how they would bother some people)

*four cheers*

@Helm:  Those are all good suggestions.  I'll hit them up and see if they are game.  As Filax_666 mentioned you'd be a pretty damn good interview as well.

Semi-off-topic, but you can adjust all sorts of stuff at Pixel Joint (although I know it's not immediately obvious). The text-size and font family adjustments can be found by hovering over the "Adjust Text" link at the top of articles and you can change the "theme" (colors) by creating an account and selecting a new theme in your profile. For example...
