Heya CA, I've been lurking on here for a while, and first off, I have to say I'm quite impressed (and definitely intimidated/humiliated by my own miniscule things that probably don't pass off as art on here) by the quality of this place, compared to some other well known sites.
My background is rather short, I'm 18, in my senior year of high school, and have no plans to pursue any kind of career in art.
I can't really sum up my interests, mainly because I like to wrap my head anything. I guess you could say I'm heavily into photography, cars, weapons, philosophy, debate, and electronics. I currently own a Intuos4, and some cheap sketchbook I got back during my Junior year of Furry/Anime drawing class, aka Art 1.
Really, ask me anything. I'm horrible at introductions.
TL;DR: I am a kid who is eager to learn how to get the images in his head onto paper or his tablet.
