Hydro, are you going yourself, or is Will sending you a video with footage of it, or pictures, or anything at all?

well, I think Hydro does have a job doing graphics with a computer company (I forget exactly, but I know he did say something about doing computer or game graphics), so its possible he could go, but its going to be up to his schedule although he does live in LA and the GDC and later E3 is in LA.

Obviously I'm not Hydro but I do enjoy seeing other people draw established creatures (like Hugg's version of the naucean and baobas) Its a free country after all ;).
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well its too expensive for me to go as well as a little too far. As for sending me anything I have no idea. *crosses fings* one can only hope. However GDC did post his last speech, so eventully the public will get to see. ALso their is Gaming Steve reporting for us :D Hopefully he will bring back good info.

well, I think Hydro does have a job doing graphics with a computer company (I forget exactly, but I know he did say something about doing computer or game graphics), so its possible he could go, but its going to be up to his schedule although he does live in LA and the GDC and later E3 is in LA.

Nope i did not. I am just a Game Art and Design Major student at AIO. So Will if ya need an addtion to ya team i would more than happy to be hired *hint hint* And the GDC is not by LA its in  San Jose, California.  San Jose is just south of San Francisco and is just to far for me to go.

I forget exactly how I found this forum, but I do remember the first thread I ever clicked on was Hydro's Creature Index...  Therefore, the first creature I saw was the Naucean.  I saw a few pictures of it, and the first thoughts that ran through my head were, "Oh emm jee, this guy has too much time on his hands!"  Then I kept looking at the Naucean.  And I kept looking at other pictures of it.  And I kept looking at it.  And I kept looking at it.  The more I looked at it, the more I liked it, admired it.  I think the Naucean is going to be a huge part of Spore history.  After seeing it, I really really really wanted to make a creature of my own.  But like Will, my biggest bottleneck(Or smallest, depending on how you look at it) is my imagination.  I can't think of a fricken' creature to make.  After watching and re-watching the video, I doubted how possible the pseudomadible would be, with the tenticles and hands inside.  But holy crap, it shows what dedication and faith in Spore's creator can get you.  Pseudo-fame for you and your creature!  Congrats Hydro(and you too, Areku)!

Hah 8 pages later, Congrats man, I do really love the Naucean and how it looks, although, everything I had thought up was no so original, it gives me ideas. I'm glad to see your work helped you and the community as a whole. It also shows how great a guy Will is, plus that he wants a good game, one that will remain in gaming history.

Hehehehehe... he wants to see if all these strange creatures are possible, well if he wants to have an example of a human-like race put in the good word ;)  And I live very very close to San Jose, so there's a good chance I'll be there!

Congrats Hydro, how does it feel knowing everyone here wishes they were you?  :P
