    I used to play Medal of Honor Spearhead, and one of my friends on there told me about a site (Royal-Designs) that he had just made staff. And so I asked if he got paid and he said yeah sometimes depending on the customer. $$CHING CHING$$ So I thought it be all easy so I joined and started my journey there. Next after Royal-Designs went down I joined Fading-Art which lasted about 2-3 years. Once that went down me and a buddy off there created MTMCustomDesignz, then it was known as MTMDesignz. All 3 sites I was Admin-Lite or Admin, which is pretty good imo, mostly because I knew the most about computers there (mostly web programming)... Once they dropped I kind of floated around, then came here...

    I was 13 when I first started graphics. My greatest inspirers would be Destiny952. I knew him from when he first started GFX and followed his work all the way.

    saw some people with tags on a forum i used to go to, wanted to make some myself.

    originally, i wanted to learn to digipaint, because my art teacher said it's good to know, but i moved in 3d and stuff later.

    Signatures on Diablo 2 ladder / clan forums.

    It quickly grew into fascination with dreamweaver / flash imitations / photoshop and web design overall.

    I made logos for a website where you were a manager for a soccer team.
