Power User Profile: Anarchangel

I've always liked long-time poster Anarchangel's stuff, and now I'm glad to get the chance to know him better. So do you, you lucky duck! I always wondered where the handle came from, and now I know. Though I have to confess, I thought maybe it was a play on "Anarchy" too. Oh well, wrong again!

Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present Anarchangel!

  1. Online name used in HeroMachine environs: Anarchangel
  2. A photo (or drawing) of you in "real life":
  3. Real name: Gabriel (Hence Anarchangel)
  4. Real city/state/country: Near Glasgow, Scotland.
  5. Real job: Bike messenger.
  6. Real age: 27
  7. Gender: Male
  8. Relationship status (married, single, in a long-term relationship, dating someone, "it's complicated", etc): Married

  9. Online archive of your creations: http://forums.ugo.com/showthread.php?t=37288
  10. The best piece of HeroMachine art you've created: Dragonfly:

  11. Favorite all-time geeky movie if any: I'd have to say "Star Wars". I'm a total geek for this franchise and have a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge about the expanded universe in my brain. Total geek.
  12. Favorite all-time geeky book if any: I'm not sure if it would be considered geeky but I love Alice in Wonderland.
  13. Favorite all-time geeky TV show if any: "Stargate SG-1"
  14. Favorite all-time comic book character if any: This changes all the time but one character I've always liked is Deadpool. Though I liked him more before everyone else jumped on the band wagon and he became popular.
  15. If you could have one super-heroic power in real life, you'd choose: Telekinesis, simply because it can be used in so many different ways. Using it to fly would be good but I'd probably end up slamming myself into the side of a building.

  16. In your leisure time you like to: I like to write and usually have at least three stories I try to get typed up. I've found online roleplaying to be quite an entertaining pass time and when I'm not being a geek I like to listen to music (I'm a total metal head).

  17. Character design turn-ons (things you love to see that make for a good design): Attention to detail. I'm the kind of person who looks over every inch of a character and when I see all the intricate little details that someone puts into their creations I can tell that they've put a lot of time and love into it.
  18. Character design turn-offs (things you hate to see that make for a bad design): Obvious mistakes. Like I said, I look at everything and something doesn't make sense, be it a backwards hand or an awkward pose, it ruins the image in my opinion.
  19. Best tip for a HeroMachine newbie: Stick with it. When I started out with the HeroMachine 3 program I couldn't do a damn thing with it and I was tempted to give up after seeing how great other people could make their characters look. But I kept at it and I learned from other users and now I like to think I can make some acceptable creations. Speaking of other users, don't be afraid to ask questions. The HeroMachine community as a whole are a helpful bunch and you can learn a lot from them all.
  20. Any personal message you'd like to share with the HeroMachine community about Geek Life: Embrace your geekiness. Geeks drive the world forward, pushing new ideas and new thoughts and bringing about change. It's good to be a geek. It's good to be unique. Once you start becoming like everyone else you're screwed. Also don't watch "Jersey Shore" or you'll die inside.
