My icon was made by Zagittorch
I am Ultimate Ridley, just a guy who does stuff.
I engage in a variety of artistic endeavours, such as drawing traditionally, coloring digitally, writing fanfiction, original universe-building, and spriting. I am also completely self-taught, having been drawing since before I can even remember.
(...Or at least all of the above was true until I effectively quit drawing in 2014.)
Feel free to thank me for a favorite, because I do not favorite particularly often.
My interests can be seen below, but I should be able to provide you with more insight to them here.MUSIC I LIKE
Metal of the more melodic subgenres (plus black metal)...
...Or that's what 2014 Ridley would say. My metal intake has decreased significantly starting in 2016, when I transitioned more to folk music (by which I mean like actual medieval sounding stuff, not what comes up when you search folk music on iTunes). Metal is still important to me, but I can narrow the list of metal bands I actually listen to frequently down to about a dozen, give or take.VIDEO GAMES I LIKE
Name a relatively well-known game that came out before 2014 and there's a good chance I've played it. I like most of the games I play because I just like games in general. Except racing and sports games. I'm godawful at those.
Since this is my profile, I have some bragging rights: I am officially certified in Adobe Photoshop CS5 (despite always having been a GIMP boy, even back during the class we used Photoshop I'd pop in a flash drive with GIMP installed on it and boot that up instead), and I have a TestOut PC Pro certificate... take with those what you will.

I don't really read books. If you wanna get all offended at me dismissing a medium, please do me a favor and be sure to get just as offended when someone says they don't like video games.
I don't have one. See above.

I play with too many of them to just pick one.

History, conworlding and writing. I don't like writing books, no. I want to write for a TV show or game or something.
