I'm just your average guy: plays video games of various types, goes to college, and basically hangs out. I've recently taken up drawing, and although I still don't consider myself 'good' at it, I feel I'm better than I was when just starting out.
My profile pic was wonderfully crafted by :iconthecat101:. Thank you.

I don't like talking about myself much in public settings, but there is something thing I love, and that's inspiring others to do their best and making them feel good about what they have done so far.

Only, there is one thing I think I enjoy much more than that. And that's when people inspire me to do my best and make me feel good about what I've done.

But... I want to do better than what my best once was. So please do me this favor: Comment. Give me your opinions on my works. Tell me what you like about them, what you hate about them, what you love about them. Let me know what seems just right, or what seems just a tad off, or what looks like I completely botched.

Don't be afraid if it sounds like your being a little mean, if it's all for the purpose of improvement, I can handle it.
Interests
Yep...

Backstory-ish-thing: So... i have this yearly-ish cycle that I've noticed...  About every 10 months or so into the cycle I get completely disinterested with video games.  Not a single one seems to catch my eye or even feels worth the time to even consider playing.  Typically, this becomes a depressing time where I go potato on the couch, stare blankly at the TV, and sigh over all the wasted time I've lost.

Well, it's that time again.  So, I'll see you guys around... I'll be spending my days doing abso....
NO...  I refuse to fall into that slump again...  This time around I realize there are so many other things to do.  I could push an additional effort into my schoolwork, I could dedicate an additional hour or two to work.  But those are sorta lame...  What I'm really thinking is throwing all the time I can spare into finally getting a honest to goodness dA chat bot running and working AND dedicate the time I should have been to actually obtaining some degree of artistic talent.

Yah... I sortof had to stop and consider yet another 'promise' to start working on practicing my art.  But, I'm not promising anything this time.  Not a thing.  I guess this way the only one I fail if I don't work on my lack-of-artistic skills is myself.  And if I do start working on it, and improve, my work will show for itself.  In fact, I've already got my first 2 sketches drawn out, thanks to a drawing book I got months ago during the holidays:

First Dragon Try by DaringBlitz Second Try Dragon by DaringBlitz

They ARE of the same (or similar) dragon using the same technique from the book.  But what is practice if you don't go back and redo what you've done?  Any and all criticism is welcome (please try to keep it nice and constructive).  I already have some notes in the descriptions, ignore those, agree with them, disagree with them... w/e :shrug:.  I'll see about keeping a habit of posting these things and trying to get more criticism for them.

Welp... that's that status update submitted... See if anyone sees it.
I'm sort of curious if anyone actually looks at these things anymore.  Not that it's a big deal if no one does.  If there isn't anyone, I'll just have to get good and make people want to see my status updates.  :thumbsup:

See yeh around

NP, your Lord of the Beast submission is really good.

I keep promising myself that I will start practicing my drawing and sketching and always fall short on that promise.
I can at least take pleasure in the art of those who DO practice ^.^

*shrug* okay.  Not much happens outside of the journal updates that I try to post bi-weekly.

It sorta feels awkward to me in Bronies room now...  I don't that many people any more and I'm usually playing games on one screen and sitting in / watching chat in another, so I don't say much until someone says sumn to me or a conversation catches my eye.

I usually sit in my room, TheBlitzRoom, CJs room, LunaFortress, and Botdom.
