Hello and firstly thanks for having such an informative site!
My name is well AtariKid at the moment till I befriend a few people I suppose, I'm a self taught artist who has been freelancing for a few years with traditional medium, just popping out the usual carbon copied dog and new baby portrait to pay for my weekends out and a new thing to subdue my consumer demeanor.
I'm not professionally trained bar from some high schooling and tried and failed art classes in local colleges.
Taking the leap from traditional work to digital hoping to get some sort of thing from it, Im not quite sure what yet.
I've been using the 4chan board /IC/ for many years but frankly the education of most of the kids on that are linear at best and just annoy me now. And branched out to find someplace else other that DevArt to get tips crits and showcase my art.
So thanks for having me here and I hope I can learn from this and let you see some wonderful stuff along the way =)
