Favorite animated show Dragon Ball series for sure, but the Avatar series (ATLA and Korra) round out the top 3.
Favorite non-animated show Probably Game of Thrones, Modern Family is really great too. House gets an honorable mention.
Favorite movie Not much of a movie person, idk.
Favorite video game Probably Battlefield 4 since that’s all I play, but in terms of nostalgia there’s Tomba 1 and 2, Spyro, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter among others.
Favorite food I don’t know, tacos? They’re good. Mini hotdogs are pretty good too. Oh, and sign me up for boneless buffalo wings any day.
Ralph started making Stick Nodes one day because he was bored. He grew up practically addicted to a stickfigure-animation program called Pivot which sparked his interest in both animation and game development.

Eventually he got into Flash animation and Flash game development. He released quite a few games into the Flash gaming community, check out his portfolio for links.

Once mobile devices started taking over, he moved over to attempt Android games. After a few failed attempts, he released Plunder Peril – a quick 2-3 week project that was meant as Android-development practice.

After Plunder Peril, Ralph began work on Stick Nodes and in August 2014, Stick Nodes was released on Android with the iOS version following in November. Stick Nodes is built in Java with the LibGDX framework and uses RoboVM to port to iOS.

Sean is the site administrator and creator of the stickfigure submission system as well as a majority of the DBZ stickfigures. He also has a funny accent.

At around age 12 he discovered Pivot, ended up on Droidz.org looking for stickfigures to use in his animations, got fairly good after about 2 years.

He decided to make a website to host his animations on after having been on the forums for a long time. That’s what got him into webdesign since the first iteration of his website was a terrible looking flash-based thing that at the time he thought was the best thing out.

After a while he realized how stupid it looked and behaved. So he looked into HTML and CSS, got it looking slightly better but it wasn’t until he found WordPress that it started looking decent.

After that he went off the grid for a bit, got his Cert IV in IT and Webdesign, cemented his understanding of the internet protocols.

Lately he’s been helping out around the Stick Nodes community and has been managing Animation Alpha. He’s also been looking into game development and has begun a project that he hopes to finish one day soon, he can’t really reveal anything about it but it’s for mobile devices and will be a 2D sidescroller.

Days random thing

Turks are the only nation that opened a new age 2 times.

“First one was summerians, they invented writing, and they started ages.”

“Second one was Turks, they started migration of tribes.”

“Third one is Turks too, if you never heard ‘Fall Of Constantine'”

“Fourth one is French’s, they made French revolution.”

And current age is French age, so thats why DmLan is R!CH.

(Bonus fact: İ dont know that “French Revolution” translation is true, i translated French Revolution in GUGL TRANSLET, so, i think GUGL TRANSLET, translated this French Revolution wrong to English)

(Bonus fact 2: DmLan is R!CH)
