Hello there. I'm a third year student of Game Design at Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
I got into art by making avatars and signatures in Gimp/Photoshop before taking some serious traditional art classes at my high school and over the summer.
I've loved video games ever since I was little. I grew up with the PS2 before gaining a 360, Wii, and a PS3. As I've grown older, I've become fascinated with how games work as well have become entranced with the artwork and story that goes into a game.
Of course, I still want to play the games themselves. I'm Drakona1221 on the 360 and if you want to play a game that I have together, I'll be happy to help out.
Besides art and gaming, I've grown up around music and am a musician myself. I took the violin seriously from elementary school all the way through high school until I put it aside for marching band and indoor percussion. I learned I really enjoyed playing the bass drum and felt I really belonged in this musical community. They're activities I'll really miss in Canada heh.
In my down time, I love getting myself lost in a good book. I'm into fantasy and sci-fi genres but I wander into war stories once in a while, fictional or non-fictional. I read web comics and graphic novels as well, both for art and stories.
I'm a former member of a couple photoshop forums and communities, if you ever recall seeing a Cassafras, that's me.
