Even though I've pretty much been only good at drawing as long as I can remember, I always wanted to make games, or at least draw things for them.
My first breakthrough was designing my own miniature shooting games with Blast Works (Wii), which I would put a month or more work into apiece. The fun I had, the feedback I received as well as the limitations of the software encouraged me to try something more ambitious. Not long after, I discovered Game Maker and have been using it ever since. :)
Right now I am working on several games as well as doing some graphics work for Dreamcast/ Neo Geo developer NGDEVTEAM.
