What country do you live in, and if applicable, what state?
My hometown is Indianapolis, Indiana(USA), home of legendary auto racing, horrible public transporation and obesity.
How do you choose what Miis you're going to make? Do you have a process?
I usually start off by finding a subject with a really big nose and ugly face. Haha! Just kidding; although, there probably is some truth to that. When I set out to make a new Mii I always avoid picking a person that is ultra hip or ironic (Chuck Norris, Michael Jackson, Hitler, etc...).Those kind of subjects are all the rage on the internet, so whats the point of making them when you know that a million other people will and have already done them? I also love to pay tribute to fallen heroes, which explains the Steve Irwin and Ray Charles miis that I've made.
Another thing that I take into consideration when making a Mii is how funny and stupid they look. A lot of Mii artists seem to gravitate more towards realism and seriousness as opposed to making ridiculous caricatures, and thats fine but it's definitely not my thing.
Which Mii do you feel is your best so far?
All of my favorites are pretty unpopular. I love my Phil Spector because he's trying so hard to look cool. I thought Keith Richards was one of my strongest in terms of how ugly and funny he looks.
What one (and only one) Mii piece would you add to the Mii Channel if you could?
Remember the Flash Mii generator, and how you could move the hair up and down? I was really bummed out when I discovered that you couldnt do that in the real generator and I'm hoping that Nintendo adds that in. Like everyone else, I'd love more colors, mouthes, etc.. Different outfits would be cool too. I'd love more hats because then I'd finally be able to make an Esteban or Chef Tony Mii. I have a bad feeling that Nintendo wont add much in the future. I think they designed the Miis to take up the least amount of memory/space so why would they add a bunch of stuff that could possibly complicate things?
What's your favorite experience with the Wii so far?
My favorite experience I've had with the Wii so far is when my friend Sarah played Wii Tennis while holding here newborn baby in her left arm while swinging the remote with here right. Sure it was wreckless and irresponsible, but if you can play a game comfortably with one hand while holding an infant, next-gen gameplay had finally arrived.
What game do you feel is missing from the Wii line-up most right now, given the Wii's unique control mechanic?
No Mario Galaxy at launch was a HUGE mistake. Remember when Nintendo used to launch new hardware with a brand-new Mario game or one that was at least set in the universe (Luigi's Mansion)? The Wii really needed a strong first party platformer not to mention a game that would silence the graphics *****s. Galaxy would have been perfect. Now they're saying that Galaxy wont come out until xmas of next year! What a bad decision!
Any additional props, plugs or comments?
I just wanted to say that all my Miis are a collaborative effort between me, my brother Shane ( he's the one who actually bought the Wii and the Chewbacca was almost all his idea) and our best friend Stuart. I'd also like to thank everyone on here that have encouraged me with such kind words and inspirations through your own works that often make my stuff look lame in comparison. Lastly, I'd like to express my gratitude and admiration for Jose Nintendo for creating such an amazing site. This guys been real good to us, and for that I thank him. Cheers to miiplaza.net! This is just he beginning!
