He's right, it doesn't. I really like that though.

Maps are really cool. I like stuff like that, but not drawing them, really. Most of what I draw is preexisting stuff, which does tend to get a lot of criticism because I can't really just come up with my own stuff. for example, when I was about 12, I used to tape anime for the sole purpose of pausing the frame I wanted to draw and draw it! Mind you this was very difficult since VCRs tend to automatically stop the tape when left on pause for more than like 5 minutes or something. Requiring me to rewind, play it through to that frame again, pause and resume drawing. Quit time consuming but I became very good at it.

My neat pausing skills came in handy later when I began to screen shot movies, concert DVDs and things like that for the purpose of icon making from MY OWN stuff. Well, I took the caps, so yeah.
I'll definitely share some of then when I get the chance. Most of what I got in my portfolio are random YuGiOh cards that my brother requested me to draw, said screen shots from anime (or video games) or pics out of video game strategy guides. Boy I am a nerd. And boy do I ramble a lot!
I like my first name, but my bland as hell last name that is actually more common as a first name can go to hell.

See, if I could draw, I'd probably do landscapes. I'm fascinated by them and a lot of my writing reflects that. And I don't see how sitting down on a hillside and drawing the valley below is really any more artistically valid than what you're doing, with the mad pausing skillz and all - both are just drawing what's in front of you!

And here's the model railway plan I have uploaded. I'm not sure it'll make any sense; some folks not into model railways get what's going on, while others just see a bunch of lines with little coherence. I've done much more complicated stuff than this, but I think this is my best work and the most accurately to scale of anything I've done: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ilwayplan1.jpg

What, you're growing younger?

I think any poll would just be unanimous. He needs to accept this fact and do it, rather than running off for dinner.

Damn, all this talk about food is making me hungry.
My supermarket's deli does this awesome hot Hungarian salami that I can't get enough of.

I'm thinking of going back for another one of the toasted lavash wraps.

Thanks. It's cool, just making sure you got that and my memo about the track switch.

My first name is too common for my liking, plus I just have a general distaste of the name, I just don't think it suits me. And my last name just sucks.

Yep, that's basically what I do. I can draw most animated things just by having a picture of it. There's one in particular that I did where I experimented with how I coloured it and it wound up looking like a colour print out unless you looked at it really close. It was awesome, I am so proud of that one. That may be the one you get to see whenever I can get a pic of a drawing or something. My friend's got a digital camera so I figure that's better than nothing since I don't have a scanner and I don't know anyone who does! I've actually shown people my drawings on webcam before. Not that it's a very good way to see them!

It doesn't really make a lot of sense to me, but it looks pretty awesome. And if I may just say, I do believe I love your handwriting.
