Let's start off with the basics shall we :D?
For one I haven't been to Anime-Planet in over a few years...why is a different matter entirely.
In any case, I'm 18 years old, I've yet to finish my school. I attend the High School of Applied Arts, senior graduate (I think that's how you call it, in any case I'm a 4th year).
I plan on attending the Academy of Applied Arts, after I finish, and later what life gives, and what I can grab for myself ;).
Most of my time is spent infront of a computer screen hapilly doodling away at Photoshop or various games, and in the case of anime and manga, a quarter of an inch away from the screen.
For the last several years, I've been, drawing anime, singular characters mostly, though and have yet to delve my hands into manga creation.
