Exin (Cosine) (07.08.2007) (survey) graphician

Survey of Exin
Job: graphician

Survey submitted: Tue 07 Aug 2007 - 01:21:58

Handle, ex-handle(s):

Name, birthday, origin:
Sebastian, 1982, Leipzig

Group, ex-group(s):
I started in Anubis and Voodoo with lame converted manga pictures before I could draw decently well. Now I'm a lamer in Cosine because nobody wants my graphics...but for that later...

What was your first group, your role in that group and what did that group produce?:
Well, before that crap I wanted to form a own group with Exmembers from TigerCrew and others. Well, they fucked up and gave me the fault for it. Well, the coders were promising, we had also 2 capable musicians. But well, they made some lame demos afterwards that are not worth mentioning...

What motivates you to spend time on the scene?:
Oh, the friends i have there and that you can go to a party in nowhere to see the surprised look of them that someone from germany made it there.

What is your favorite color?:
Brown...maybe light brown....No, i'm not a military fan. But this is a colour that all 8 Bit machines deserve...

On what platform(s) did you begin your computing journey, and when was this?:
Oh, i was around 7 when i started on a K5120 with 2 diskdrives. It was mainly a CP/M machine. Much later i got a C64 for 9 Mega Drive Games.

What platform(s) do you use now?:
The Commodore Plus/4 and the Amstrad CPC.

What is/are your favorite piece(s) of music(s) - from a demo production or a scener (released outside of a demo)?:
Oh there are some musics on the Spectrum, belonging to a demo. Or was it from a collection? It was from the UK, thats all i know and it was on Spectrum. Sometimes i find these tunes again. Otherwise, i liked the music from the PC demo "1995" and from the C64 demo "Animal 2" by full force.

Which graphician, in and outside the demoscene, inspirated you the most?: Oh, i guess noone. You can see that on my style, its still crap. But for the rounder women, i like Brian's art and i even made some fanart about one of his characters. Its one of his favourites, which honored me.

What is/are your favorite picture(s) - from a demo production or a scener (released outside of a demo)?:
Uh...since there are not so many demos where pictures are important...i'd say some Demos where Diver/4D and Gas13 did the graphics. They were pretty cool.

What's the procedure when you start a new picture?:
White Background, black lines. The Head first with hair, mouth/muzzle position and the rest of the body. For non-personal art, i make the looking spot first.

What drawing/3d program are you using the most to express yourself? Why?:
a cross between multibotticelli (+4), Interpaint (C64) and Art Studio+ (CPC).

Botticelli has great control over the colours. Interpaint can use Amiga Mouse and Art Studio (OCP+) supports the CPC Plus.

Do you draw on any other platforms beside computers? (Painting, Graffiti etc): I draw on Paper sometimes for Comics. Otherwise, no...

Which project that you worked on was the most exciting and interesting for you? And why?:
On the pic where i actually won a competition...i did all night long at the party place....maybe thats why...

What is your favorite demo, intro, megademo, retrogame, slideshow, musicdisk, diskmag, wilddemo?:
Oh...i have so many favorites...On Amiga Hardwired, on C64 i enjoyed various but cant make out a single one...on PC only a few old ones or some with good music....As for musicdisks, i liked the TIA music disks alot. And i read diskmags but dont like the idea of it.

Discuss: minimalistic demos, cracktros, fucktros, joke demos, lamers, compo winners at big parties, demotools, diskmags, chiptunes, glenz vectors, programming languages, photoshop, textmode :
I take the Joke Demos. They should be the Party Winner!

What percentage of modern demos are 3d flybys?:

What percentage of older demos are the same effects recycled?:
I think in older demos they coded everything from scratch.

What platform(s) needs more demos?:
The Plus/4, CPC Plus, KC85/4, A7150, Atari TT, C128, Ti99/4A, Sega Mega CD just to name a few....

Please describe your personal experiences with your most favourite or impressive party you have ever been at.:
I liked the Mekka Symposium everytime. I would like to go to Assembly sometimes, or Euskal party.

How did the scene alter since you are taking an active part in it? Can you explain why?:
The scene went down on specific platforms like Amiga, ZX Spectrum and Atari. Now there are Demos for mainly the PC. But other Platforms became Popular, like the MSX, Plus/4, Vic20 and the Atari 2600. Its because they showed everything what could be done and these computers became boring. Except on PC. They reinvent themselves every day new.

What are your dreams/goals in life, did scene help you and have you achieved them yet?:
Oh, The Demoscene is just a nice thing to catch friends and have fun. It doesn have anything to do with my actual life.
