Interests
So.  Again to the random stragglers who happened to misclick some picture on the main page and end up on my site: Hello

A quick introduction to myself: I am a 20 something year old guy who aspired in art while equally conflicted to play music, graduated from UCR as an Econ Major.  (Spread thin much?)
I did crappily in school, but managed to get it together and graduate.  
Immediately I started working and saving for art school.  In the meantime however, I went to different classes and followed tutorials here and there.  It is only recently however, that I started to break open my bank to pay for classes that cost more than community college classes

To my "many" "loyal" "followers," and I use all three terms lightly:
In case you've wondered where I've been and what I've done in my absinthe

Still taking figure drawing workshop classes.  
Stumbled upon redenginestudios.blogspot.com/
Enrolled and took 2 classes on Environment (both similar though with different emphases
Took 1 class on Character Design

I guess that makes me a full time worker and student.  

I'm still not in a place where I'm happy with my art, and in many ways I feel inadequate.  My education history is a ragtag curriculum, best described as "getting whatever classes I can while working a fulltime job."  However in the meantime I can't deny I've improved immensely, and I feel like I have a better idea of skill level I want to achieve.  I know the exercises I need to do and a direction to head.  

No place to go but up I guess.

  • Watching: Life pass by
  • Playing: Smash
  • Eating: A lot of chicken

Hey and welcome on FGE, the currently biggest and probably also most active fighting game related community on dA :iconfighting-games-elite: saw that you wanted to join and you were auto-approved

We have currently 2 art collaborations ongoing there, one about the 20th Anniversary of Tekken and the FGE Project which is basically a growing colelction of fighting game characters by group members who claimed one of the characters.

Our next big art contest starts on the 1st Januar next year and the theme is not yet decided.

If you like to know more about our art collaborations, where and how they are hosted and maybe want to participate in one of them just comment.

I am the founder of FGE, welcome on board!

 Excellent work there with your Smash of the dames btw, it was approved by me of course!

I remembered a while back that you'd linked me to a deviantart page, and decided to look at it. I'm happy to be able to say how impressed I am with your stuff!
