Dont want to get too personal (stuff on the net can come back and haunt you
) but basically i'm a self taught artist, been drawing since i was like 5 or so.
My parents got me a how to draw book featuring Woody Woodpecker and some other cartoon characters; y'know how you're supposed to build up your drawings by first doing the stick figure, then adding the circles and cubes, cylinders, etc to get the shape of the thing you're drawing? yeah well i cheated and traced the finished drawings, HA! Only years later (like 10 years later) when I discovered the How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way book that i realized "$#%* I do have to draw the stick figures... and cubes... and cylinders".
At school I was always one of the go to kids for any particular drawing assignment (fellow deviant Emanuel "emrock77" Macias can back me up on this, he's a long time friend of mine and was also one of the "go to" kids, check him out emrok77.deviantart.com/
that's probably the only thing i was known for at school and the only time i would be popular, heh.
As a kid i wanted to be many things, when Top Gun and Iron Eagle were popular I wanted to be a fighter pilot, when i realized that wasnt gonna happen I wanted to become an animator seeing as how I liked to draw but never in my aspirations did i think of wanting to be a comic book artist, that is until one day it just hit me and i said to myself "I want to do a Spider-Man vs Batman comic" problem was i didn't know where to get comics! luckily i remembered that a nearby school supply store had a magazine rack and lo and behold they had Spidey and Batman comics! so i finally had my research material and that began my quest to get into this damn field of comic books.
I've literally spent over 2/3 of my life reading comics but i didn't consider wanting to get into comics until i was in my mid teens, meeting other like minded friends that sparked my imagination and creativity.
And here I am, still trying, honing my skills till one day, i'd like to attend a comic convention and be on the other side of the table.
