This is my first time ever participating in an online forum, so if I error in anyway please excuse me. My name is Julian Allen and I am a concept designer pretty new to the California area. I've been here now 2 years and am having the time of my life. I'm originally from Detroit, Mi and went to the Center for Creative Studies College of Art and Design where I received my BFA in Commercial Illustration. I finally put a website up and my goal is to network and make new friends. I'm pursuing the gaming industry and am at present trying to learn 3d texturing and modeling. I really enjoy this forum. For the past few weeks I reviewed and read the threads before I joined. From what I see this has to be one of the best forums I have ever visited. I'll end this now with the hope of making new friends as well as being a friend.
