My Bio
I've always enjoyed drawing since I was little. I went to university in 2005 and studied animation where I specialised in stop-motion. I came away with a 2:1 with honours! Whilst I would like to try my hand at animation professionally, it has currently fallen into the territory of a hobby.

Current Residence: In front of my laptop.
Operating System: Windows 10

To make matters worse it isn't even evident how to get to this area and it was just dumb luck that I stumbled upon it last week. So basically speaking, until the dA team does something to improve the situation with group notifications you may have to wait longer before seeing your submissions added to the

Eclipse and Me

Eclipse and Me

So, after the news that the "old" site will be shut down around May 20th and deviants will have to then exclusively use the new Eclipse site, I switched over in an attempt to get used to it before then. I've lasted 2 days and I don't want to put myself through it anymore. I don't like it. I've been a member of deviantART for 14 years and so I have seen many of the changes made to the site during that time. None of them have ever made me feel like this. None of them have ever been so drastic. With previous updates I could always see the benefit to what was being done, even if I knew it was going to take some getting used to. I can't see the be
