I'm a hobbyist digital painter who considers himself an animator. Just about everything interests me though. I'm currently studying to be an electrical engineer so if my art production slows to a halt blame it on the engineering homework. :P

I'm always happy to answer any questions or chat about whatever ^^ Just throw me a note or comment on my latest journal or comment below. Make sure what you're saying actually makes sense though, you'd be amazed how often I get nonsensical comments with no context. Ok, not that often but it does happen. ;)

I've never really taken part in any of these deviantART events so I'm going to do this as part of my goal to be more active here.

This is the first picture I ever added to my favorites. It's interesting because it says a lot about how my interests really haven't changed. I came here looking for dragons several years ago and I'm still as interested in dragons as ever. Lately I've been doing lots of fan art to build up my skills but I look forward to painting lots of dragons in the future.

Then I found Shadowumbre. Her spectacular, vibrant digital paintings of dragons and griffons and other fantastical creatures filled my imagination. She was the one that ultimately inspired me to buy my first tablet and jump into the world of digital painting.

I then found Hibbary's artwork which was just as inspiring as Shadowumbre's and showed incredible skill in traditional media. She also amazed me with how she interacted with the community. Her artwork became a drive force behind my interest in art and lead me to learn watercolors. (I really need to start practicing and using watercolor regularly!)
Four Seasons by hibbary

This little animation carries a very fond memory as probably the first time I really realized I could actually learn to do amazing animations. May very well be one of the things to have really got me into 3d animation.

Lastly I think this is a good place to honor Hakubaikou, who has been missed but not forgotten. Her artwork still amazes and inspires me.

This post sure brought back a lot of very fond memories. Happy B-day DeviantART and thanks for all the memories! I look forward to many more.

Hey thanks ^_^

Sorry for the comment spam, I keep changing my mind (I keep comment spamming you lately)

definitely not 3d, it's like it was made in toonboom or something and has a 3d base for moving 2d shapes during battle scenes, it's weird. Not very good voice acting or mouth animations at all really (yet)

and now I get that it's a show made from a game so Idk if it's like Beyblade or something in that it's not a super quality show (though beyblade wasn't the worst, I watched it)

But I tend to like a few french animated things so I'm gonna watch it a while and see

Oh hey, Wakfu's characters and art style is designed by a popular artist on DA. I didn't know those characters were made into an animation.

Yah, looking at some of it's animation, it is a bit questionable. Not on par with most anime. Still looks like it might be interesting.

But yeah you should really check out RWBY. A season is only a couple hours so you could watch it pretty easily. I absolutely adore it.

Haha it's kind of corny (mouth animations)

I'm gonna get through it

I don't know if Wakfu is any good yet, I just started it on Netflix, but it looks like its a good example of an anime made in 3d, just for 3d anime reference

I still need to start RWBY
