Well let's see here, I'm 19 and I live in Guelph Canada. I'm currently taking a Studio Art major here at the University of Guelph. I've set my sights on doing something artistic for my career so after I get this degree it off to College. I don't draw nearly often enough but that should change as my more art intesive semesters show themselves. I'm really into Anime/Manga and consider it the best of all animation simply because 1 its of a higher quality than anything western (I'm refering to the high end of Anime like Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Blood the last Vampire, Escaflowne: a Girl in Gaia, and so forth NOT anthing that includes the word mon, Sailor moon makes me want to vomit, Dragonball is cool simply because of the concept and Vegeta). And 2 they don't shy away from anything. I don't know there's just something to be said about cartoons were people are routinely disembowled that I find so... so refreshing. My favoured artists are Akira Toriyama, Tod MacFarlen (is god!), Julie Dillon, and many others that I can't remember right now but I'll add them later. If you haven't experienced what the world of higher anime has to offer I suggest you take a look, starting with Escaflowne, sweet series and perhaps the one that has had the most influence on my art. I'm also into Roleplaying, I've played D&D for so many years my head hurts, and currently I'm running an online RPG. When I update the new layout I'll post the link. I do take requests, comissions are much better, and character exchanges are fun for everyone. So if you feel like it, e-mail me. We'll talk.
