Thought it was about time I got up the nerve and just started one of these on CA. The drive and support on these forums is really inspiring, and I think this is the place to help me get to the level of art I want to be at. My goal is to eventually be able to do concept work for the game industry, but I am also interested in doing illustration stuff as well.
UPDATE: Working on more illustration gigs. Moving original stuff from this post to a later page for safekeeping!
