|Louis Royo Fan Art. Hand-drawn line art. Inked and colored in photoshop.|
I dapple in art, but mostly I enjoy looking at other's art.
My one true love is words. I am a writer, by nature, not profession, it chose me. I will eventually post some of my poems and stories here.
By profession I am a web/Graphics designer, so I guess you could say that I am an artist in that respect.
I very much enjoy Japanese animation and Manga, though I enjoy other art forms as well, it is one of my favorites.
Another medium I dapple in is Photography, I have taken both black and white photography as well as digital photography courses. I will eventually post up some of my work here.

Setting Futuristic New York City
Background 2 young Scientists find pieces of a meteorite, that have strange effects on humans. They have a difference of opinion as to how their discovery should be used. One of them steals some of them and disappears. He reappears years later, having formed an army, bent on gaining control and "purifying" the human race. (Hitler, anyone?) However, the other scientist, knowing he would try this, has formed his own defense army. They fight long and hard, and the mad scientist defeats them by framing the good guys, thus they are incarcerated for life. By the time his plan succeeds, he has lost so many soldiers, that he must retreat and regroup.
Synopsis: Tommy (Thomasina) Anderson is just a normal teenage girl with a shitty life, or so she thinks. One day her already out-of-control life spirals into something much more complicated as she learns the truth about her mother's death, her past, and her responsibilities. She vows revenge for her mother, and with the help of a band of unlikely heroes, she just might get it.
