Hello... my name is Spike.
So, about m'self... I'm 20 years old at the time of this journal (11th Nov 2014) and I am a student at the University of Bolton, taking Animation and Illustration--hoping to become a professional illustrator, preferably in comics, one of these days ^.^
I was inspired to animate and draw by a lot of things, really. The biggest influences on me, honestly, were Bruce Timm's Animated DC Universe, which started before I was born, back in 1992 and I grew up watching Superhero shows and films, mostly directed by him. I didn't realise when I was younger, but he really did influence me in a lot of ways.
The second was Edd Gould, the sadly all-too-soon-deceased internet cartoonist, who I believe first got his start on this very site. His web cartoons, his style and his humour really made me want to make internet content of my own. He's also partly the reason I was drawn to this site as well.
In the near future, I'll be creating and uploading many things. These will be in the form of mostly Superhero comics and animations--some of which I have already either completed or am working on. I hope that, when those are uploaded, you guys will appreciate the work I create
I have never really been on this site before, besides for the few times I came here to watch the old Eddworld episodes in original format. Sooooo I'm still working out the place, all-new to me more-or-less, and very different from the sites I'm used to using.
I'm wondering, should anyone happen to come across this place, what your general thoughts about this site are, since I know zero people here and I'd love to know what the general consensus is about it from the people who frequent is (is this the kinda place people frequent? I don;t know ^^'')
I suppose all that's left to say is I hope my time here is a good one, and greetings to a whole new collection of people ^w^
