Hello everyone and welcome back to the Newspaper! This week we have a quick staff update, a player interview with @Anubis, a new Video of the Week by @Mechx, and another Weekly Tip! Without further ado. Promotions @Bart from Player to Server Support Congratulations Bart, and good luck! This week @Anubis volunteered to answer any of your questions. You can find her answers to those questions below! @Rosalina Q: ? A: The one and only doge god. Q: ? A: No Q: :cooldoge: ? A: No @Liquid Flame Q: Why is it the other time I ever heard you speak, you said hi to Mike? Fucking Mike??? A: I said hi to Cat as well Q: Also hows life been, are you still in college or did you graduate already? A: I graduated Dec. 2017. I'm working as a marketing coordinator for a small, local non-profit now. Currently looking around for a new job. Exploring getting into a fusion of marketing and content creation. Or joining the Air Force. Haven't decided yet. Q: How do you like either your Major/Degree depending on that last question? A: I enjoy it. My major is in marketing, a degree in business administration. Plus my minor in political science. It's versatile. There's a lot of transferable skills in business so I could theoretically get a job outside of marketing with my degree. I've had some offers for financial advisor jobs at various firms, but I hate finance. @Dragon Q: What got you into GFX design? A: When I started playing servers, sometime in 2009 or so, maybe a little sooner, I saw what some people could do (also keep in mind that, in general, RSPS GFX artist are not that good) and I wanted to be able to do what they did. So I taught myself. Q: What is your favorite thing about GFX design? A: Exploration. 80% of GFX is practice, but 20% of it is exploration. Looking for new resources and techniques. Looking at other people's work and speed arts for techniques. Learning new things is always a positive thing. It's fun to get a new technique or resource and then make something to try it out. Q: How far along are you in Legends of Tomorrow? A: I'm all caught up and waiting for the return™ in April. Q: What is your favorite show in the Arrowverse? A: Legends of Tomorrow. I know a lot of people say Arrow is far better and from a standard drama show point of view, it probably is. But I enjoy the idiocy that is Legends. It's so stupid and wild, its great. Plus Sara Lance is my favorite character in the Arrowverse. I haven't watched much of Arrow and Flash, and I quit watching Supergirl after S2. My hierarchy is probably Legends of Tomorrow > Arrow > Flash > Supergirl. Q: What was the name of that girl you used to have on your SS2 profile? A: I'm assuming you're talking about Chrissy Costanza. I had a lot of different girls in my profile pictures on SS2, but she was the main one. @Meoooow Q: Peaky Blinders or Blue Mountain State? A: Peaky Blinders Q: What is the meaning of life without drugs? A: Finding drugs Q: Why the name Anubis? Whats the inspiration? A: I started going by Anubis when I started SS1 back in 2009-2010. I wanted Apollo originally but that was obviously taken so I started trying other mythological god names off the top of my head and somehow Anubis wasn't taken. And I've gone by it ever since. There wasn't some deep meaningful inspiration. It was just the name I picked when I first started RSPS and the name I got known by. If I were to do the same now, I'd try to snipe the name Artemis. Q: Can I sniff coke off your butt? A: Can you? @Max Q: Do you secretly love me? A: I don't love anyone. So... no. Q: Does Doge forgive those who use false Doge emojis? A: Doge is a forgiving god. But he can only tolerate heathenism for so long before he will smote those who worship false idols. @Unluckers Q: do u like pineapple on pizza? A: Yes. @Vatmos Q: Is it gay if i tripped and kissed my homie on accident? A: It's as gay as it is to suck your own dick. @Aozaki Q: Why is your standard greeting "No"? A: Because it doesn't commit you to anything. I don't have to engage in a conversation that will give me brain cancer if I don't start off a conversation with hi. Q: What is your favorite TV show? A: It's a tossup between Legends of Tomorrow and Dr. Who. Q: Of all your previous artwork what would you say is your favorite style/piece? A: I would say my favorite style is something like this (x) But it could have been executed better. The lighting on the render could be improved a lot. That said I really like artwork from Shookera and SignumPL. Their styles are what I try to emulate in a lot of my work. Below is probably my favorite tag made by another creator. The lighting is gorgeous. (x) Q: Got any resources for artwork you can recommend to me for the future? A: All I can recommend is decide on a style you want to try out and search DeviantART for tags or PSD files and look at techniques. Or watch speed arts if your eyes and brain can process them quickly enough. Sleen Designs and Stylish Designs are both artists I watched to get some ideas. Also, if you ever want to branch out to graphics outside of RSPS, consider getting into social media layouts; Youtube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, etc. It's a good skill to have. Especially in today's world. I've found that in my job, my Photoshop skills have come in handy @Anunnaki Q: No or no ? A: Maybe. Q: Who would win a survivor island contest , Bear Grylls or Hillary Clinton A: no Q: Why is thieving a skill? A: Why is hitpoints a skill? Q: Haynus or Anunnaki? A: Neither Q: peanut butter or nutella? A: Peanut butter Q: Is it a good morning? A: Is it? Q: If you could change something about the forums what would it be? A: I'd bring back Flying Ak47 @Jayson Q: Why are you still here. Shouldn't you be slaving away for Brian A: lol. @Its 11 PM Q: You're still here? A: I'm a shadow of my former self and a figment of your imagination. Q: How many signatures have you made for everyone on Soulsplit and Soulplay? I'd prefer an EXACT count. A: 313 This week's video of the week goes to @Mechx! Remember to read the Refund Policy before requesting refunds!
