|The face behind the machinima.|
She has been drawing ever since she could pick up a crayon and has kept doing so her whole life, to the dismay of her teachers as she draws more than she does homework. In the early years of the 21st century she picked up painting her artwork on the computer with the program Corel PHOTO-PAINT 9, and later on Adobe Photoshop. She's been using it ever since. She has also tried her hand at sculpture, painting (with real paint), and graphic design (thanks to the help of her senior year art teacher). She is also a pretty avid writer, coming up with a new story almost every week, with almost every dream.
Aside from the hands on arts, Raven also delves a bit into the creation of music, and has a pretty good singing voice, though it has wained since her last choir class.
In 2009, Raven found a new passion. World of Warcraft machinima. In the beginning, she was inspired by Oxhorn, loving all of his video, watching them ten times a day, and trying to figure out how she could do the same thing. She had already been creating AMVs (anime music videos) and VGMVs (game music videos) for a few years, but couldn't figure out how to do what Oxhorn did with what little she had, which was, at the time, only Windows Movie Maker.
After browsing around youtube for a while, she found her answer: Sony Vegas. Even after she got that though, she wasn't able to do anything until she got fraps and then WoW model viewer. After than she spent about a year goofing around with the programs, trying to come up with something that was somewhat good.
Soon Raven discovered WoW music parodies when she found Nyhm, the first song she listened to of his was "Just Loot It." After listening to his music, as well as Gigi, Abandonation, ect, she decided to try her own hand at it. While she has a moderately good singing voice, she wasn't confident enough to really work at it and soon dropped that passion and went back to machinima.
For almost a year, Raven tried hard to get a video done, but, thanks to computer problems, school, relationships, raiding, rping, and low confindence, she wasn't able to make something she found good enough to post. After so many failures with model viewer, she decided to try in game footage. This was when she started making her video for "Looking Back No More." About a month later she found EmberIsolte's cover of Ninja Raiders and just had to make a video for it.
