The Crow’s Nest: Who Is Scarecrow?
Real name – Wayne Peters!
I am 30 and I live in Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, England, though I’m originally from Wales. I live with my cat, Tabby and my mate, Alexis.
I currently work for Acclaim UK as a 3d Artist. I have previously worked for Microsoft and Lionhead to varying degrees aswell as a slew of Quake2 and Half Life mods. My interests include drawing, painting, model making – either kits or from scratch, Role Playing (the old fashioned way! – remember dice!?), 3D animation and model-making on the Computer (I use 3D STUDIO MAX), More commonly I create Player Plug-in models for Quake2 and Half-Life. I have done extensive work for Airquake2, WANTED for Half Life and I am the author of several extensive Half Life modelling tutorials on Cold Fusion which you can link to on the left. I am often to be found on the Cold Fusion message forums answering pleas for help. Cold Fusion is a website I used to run, hosted by Planet Half-Life, dedicated to Half-Life modelling. It is now lorded over by Bamphalas. I have since moved on to other things.
I also enjoy character and hardware concept design. I primarily consider myself to be a character designer.
I love the cinema. My favourite Movies of all time are:
TERMINATOR (the first, not the appalling firework display that was T2)
ALIEN/ALIENS (not 3 or 4)
There are MANY others but those are the top five.
I watch very little TV but I do enjoy Doctor WHO, STAR TREK the next Generation, Babylon 5, Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Millennium, the Simpsons, League of Gentlemen.
