I became interested in Creatures while reading a science magazine that had information on Creatures in it.
I became involved in the CC three months before C2 came out. When Lis Morris did her Creatures fanfic, I read it and was so impressed, I asked if she would like me to illustrate it. She did and I did. I still feel her trilogy is the best Creatures fanfic out there. I also illoed' LilWashu's work...
I did a very short series of cartoons and fanfic for the CC as well. At one point Elf was working on some grendels and needed a very peaceful genome to work from..So she asked me for help. I just happened to have had a very gentle, peaceful Bruin norn named Dash...I decided his genome was perfect, so Elf got it and used it as she saw fit.
As time went on, there was lots of infighting in the CC over norn torture and other issues...Most of which I stayed out of. I basically just ignored the bad bits of the CC and went with the good and there was lots of good, and still is.
I feel Creatures has a lot of potential in both virtual and real life apps...Like pet bots and I'm glad to have been a part of the CC and to have gotten to watch it evolve over the years.
