First off, I HATE writing about myself. Now that that's over... I am an aspiring fantasy artist and a professional illustrator wannabe! :P I've been here for a couple months before the big crash, and have met some awesome people already. There are a lot of great artists out there, and it's nice to have a site with so much support for fellow members. Fantasy art, for me, is a release from the rest of the everyday world, which is WAY too full of cynicism for my taste. I'm open and friendly and I think constructive criticism is a good way to help me improve, so feel free to drop me a line!Update, June 2009.Well, I've been here rather a while now, and think it might be safe to say I'm back into my drawing more than once a year.  ;)  Those who have been watching me for a while may notice that a lot of the older artworks are gone.  I felt it was time for a gallery cleanout.  I did keep all of the wonderful comments people left me over the years that have helped me grow and develop my work (as I continue to grow and develop now), so your time was not wasted.I did keep those pieces up that people have favourited or added to tours in the past, however, as I didn't wish to cause big blank spots and 404 errors.  Thanks again everyone for your support! I like Drawing (duh), painting, music (singing, violin, piano, listening - you name it), math, cooking, hiking, wrestling (lately), playing around and having fun. Favourite movies Erm... I don't have any channels on my TV, so my favourite fantasy movies, I guess, are (series) Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, and the individual movies I guess Labyrinth? I loved the screenplay in Pan's Labyrinth as well, though some of the scenes squicked me. Favourite books LOTR, The Dark is Rising, Starship Troopers (the BOOK, not the movie).. And some others that I can't seem to think of. Favourite music Too many to list....
