    Here we go folks!

    For those of you who enjoy sharing your art with others, working commissions, or trying to get yourself noticed by a somebody in the biz it's always nice to get your name out there. That's why this thread is in place:

    Name:
    Title(s):
    Years Experience:
    Resume-worthy experience:
    Tools of trade:
    Stylistic influences:
    Drawing subject preferences:
    Artwork:

    A run-down on each:

    Name: - You!
    Title(s): - What do you do? Pencils? Inks? Colors? Letters? 3D Modeling? Rendering? Etc.
    Years Experience: How long have you been working at your craft. If you started inking only 2 years ago but was doing pencils 4 years ago say so.
    Resume-worthy experience: If you were making a resume for a company what would you include? Keep it to top two or three here.
    Tools of trade: What brand of pencils? Paper? Markers? Pens? Photoshop? 3DMAX? etc.
    Stylistic influences: Who influences your art?
    Drawing subject preferences: What do you like to draw?
    Artwork: A link or two to your galleries online showing off your best stuff.
    E-Mail: If you don't have an e-mail address you want to share but want people to contact you I suggest making an alt. email where you can then reply to trustworthy customers without givng away your address.


    So for me it would go:
