Hello to all of you! My name is John, but everyone calls me Luke.|
I've been a digital art hobbyist for a little over two years, but I have always been drawing cartoon characters on and off for as long as I can remember. After picking it back up again a few years ago on paper, and reading tutorials on this great site, I realized how much I really enjoyed art, and wanted to take it seriously. Within hardly a year of learning my way around GIMP, and drawing with a mouse in vectors, I knew I was serious about art, so I got myself a Wacom tablet to take things to the next level.
While I don't see myself taking classes and becoming an artist on a professional basis yet, (Would love to be an electrician!) I eventually want to use my skills with a tablet to produce web comics, and animate things for original video game projects. Cartoon artwork is something I love to enjoy or produce myself, I've always been that way.
A part of me feels there isn't a jack of all trades, but there also isn't just the one trade all of us can be good at. The path of Life doesn't only have Left or Right forks, there are many, and they all branch out in a myriad of different directions. I believe having multiple career paths open to you is the best way to enjoy life to its fullest, no matter what means you are constructive for the joy of others and yourself.
