Hi! I usually go by the name ThePortuguesePlayer in other sites and games. I came here from Need For Speed World, the game that recently went dead. For months I was trying to find a substitute up until I found one of Whitey's videos on Youtube. I had no idea of such a server in MTA, I didn't even know it was possible to change San Andreas so much this way! I went to try it, and, despite the body kit options not being great, I was extremely surprised at the NFS Carbon like vinyls. From all the features, this is one I was sure it was impossible to implement. It's impressive, and somehow all this is even stable, kudos for the developers, amazing work. It seems like I'm here to stay, even if only to recreate some of my old NFSW cars in SA.
To be honest, I don't like racing as much as I like creating the cars. Of course, NFS games like Underground, UG2, Carbon and ProStreet are big favorites because of their customization possibilities. After NFSW, I gave a shot at being a Youtuber for a game called Robocraft. It's one more of those cube building games. I created cars in it, and that was pretty much all I did. I hate the gameplay completely.
All this creating and designing comes from me being an graphics artist. I'm not much of a gamer, but, if the game is a good canvas for creativity, I'm all up for it.
As a hobby, I draw some webcomics, and do photography. I also do some sketches of toony looking cars as a timewaster, as it's something I draw with ease just to relax. The name Matthew Chow comes from a character of one of those comics, I usually use the names of my characters as game nicknames, just because, so I end up swapping names often.
Professionally, I'm a car painter at a small workshop. I get to work on plenty of normal cars but it's not unusual getting something more exotic once in a while.
During my experience of less than a year in that place, I've had the pleasure of working on cars like the Tesla S60, the Bentley Continental GTC, the Jaguar E-Type, the Lamborghini Huracán, Gallardo and Gallardo SuperLeggera, the Mazda RX-7 FD, the 68's Ford Mustang Fastback, the Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R and R33 GTS-t, the Toyota Corolla GT-86, and the usual classics like the Citroën Diane, Gen1 Mini Cooper and Ford Escort Mk1, and that's every fancy name that comes to memory.
Despite all this, not even once I had the pleasure of working on a Volkswagen Lupo, which is a shame, because it's my dream car.
Within the first week I got on this server, I contacted Quindo, asking him if he planned on making the Moonbeam a drivable car, one of a whole "Class M", for Minivan. He said no, and I got sad...
I would totally main that car, as I did in offline San Andreas.
However, I still aim to get something of mine into this game, specially some vinyls, I want my cars to look the best, even if I lose every race. As you may have guessed, I have experience on 2D digital drawing, but I also have basic knowledge of 3D modeling as well, so, someday, making a bodykit for one of my cars is a possibility. It would be really nice if I could get it ingame, so, it would be kind if someone would bother to explain how do things work here in that regard. In the meanwhile, if anyone needs help with any project, give me a shout and I might be able to help.
And sorry if my English goofs up once in a while, of course. I try my best in that regard, but sometimes something slips.
See you, as I fly through San Fierro!
