I made this account 4 long years ago but didn't really use it because I was more into music at the time.
made a Deviantart account around the same time... but the average level on these forums seems noticeably higher, and the constant community challenges look good.
I've been pursuing art seriously for a couple years now... some voluntary work, and now some freelance. I'm kinda restless with styles, but that's probably something common to artists who haven't settled.
I'm Not much into total realism, but I've also grown out of a lot of cartoon & manga stuff I was into, so... trying to find where I'm at. how to combine the elements I like, what techniques to hone etc.
Oh, and write enough posts that my art doesn't need to hang around waiting for moderation, and I can get back to drawing
