Well, I never did really introduce myself. Of course, I've only been here for a short while.
I'm Drew from West Virginia.
I recently decided to get into game making because it seemed like it would be a good fit for my skills. I majored in art in college, I play keyboard, and I am good with computers (though programming is my least favorite part), so it seemed like a field I would do well in.
I've already posted my art in the art thread. I hope to post a screenshot or two from my first major game soon. This project will probably take a few months. Most of that will be getting things set up and learning. Hopefully later I'll have C2 down and be proficient in everything I need to do so I can just concentrate on doing the work.
Of course, I figure I'll always be learning something new to better myself and make improvements.
So far, I've mainly been following tutorials and getting things set up. I set up Photoshop as best I could for pixel art, I have collected a ton of art and references. I have videos and gifs of video games for reference (such as animations). Right now, I'm just practicing and trying out some ideas. I already have my first major project started. I'm just easing into it slowly.
You should be hearing more from me soon once I get a bit more done on my game!
