Hobbies other than Gaming

Postby Rick Nasty 1187 » Sun Feb 22, 2015 10:15 pm

I'm just curious what are your hobbies outside of gaming.

Me personally, I like woodworking and making things. There's nothing like having a few pieces of scrap wood and making something out of what other people would consider trash.
The most recent thing I've made was a Washington Redskins logo for my dad for his birthday. If anybody is interested in seeing it I could post a pic.

While I haven't done it in a while, I've enjoyed genealogy for some time. I had a very large genealogy file, but lost a lot of my source materials when my ex-wife and I split. A lot of my stuff just seemed to vanish before I could actually get my property from the house. Oh well.

I've also started getting into making models. I'm currently working on a vinyl model kit of Spider-Man 2099 (I've been purposely doing it slow because I put one together when I was in high school, but rushed it, and it came out looking like crap). When I'm done with that, I'm going to try making a custom vinyl model of Ghost Rider 2099. I've already picked up a vinyl Ghost Rider kit and a vinyl Robocop kit to use as the base parts for it. If somebody has a vinyl Ash from Evil Dead / Army of Darkness and doesn't plan on using the chainsaw hand, I'd love to take it... I don't want to purchase a full kit just for that one piece.

I like to work on Sudoku and logic puzzles (I have books that I take to work with me to work on during breaks) and I enjoy reading. Speaking of which, I need to check in and see what's going on with the "Book Club" because nothing has been posted since they chose "The Gunslinger" as the current book...

@HyruleBalverine if you are anything like me it doesn't matter how long you take on a project when you're done you still nitpick every little flaw and see many things you could have done to make it better.

@ozbundyboy I like collecting coins too but I don't have any that's worth anything just ones I like. Especially arcade tokens.

Outside of gaming, I read a lot of comics, and I also code in my spare time. I've recently got into cryptic crosswords, and also generally enjoy most puzzles, and board games.

Ok, so this may be a bit late to post on, I enjoy lots of hobbies outside of gaming. My biggest is 3D modeling. I like to make objects using computer programs, Autodesk Maya mostly, and set it up in a complete scene. Right now, I am still learning a lot about the program and I would like to learn Z-Brush. Maya tends to be great for non-organic items and Z-Brush is great for organic modeling. A chair is a great example of non-organic modeling where as a person is considered organic.

If you would like to see Z-Brush modeling at it's best - which is what I am aiming for - you can go to their site and take a look at the galleries. It's called PIXOLOGIC dot com. Go to the tab "About Z-Brush" and there will be a drop down menu. Pick the GALLERY option and peruse at your leisure.

I've also enjoyed genealogy...my family and I have been able to trace our roots down to our first ancestor in Canada in the 1600's...but we lose the trail when we get to France. The closest we got was a general location but being of Catholic in a region that was another religion as a majority played a part in losing the trace as he most likely would have had another name to hide his religion..or something along those lines.

Other than that...love reading and I collect random things. Video game related toys and hot wheels seem to be what I collect most (I have nothnig special or worth money...just collecting for the love of it and not a financial investement)
