Helloo all!

Hello there, my name is Ant.

I have been doing graphics on and off now for about 10 months. I am totally self taught, and am only 16. So no job within it yet :p.

Anyways, found this site, googling around :)

I love to muck around in photoshop doing web layouts.
Used to create signatures for forums but see that as pointless now, as how will it help, aha. I also like to take photos too :D.

I really wanna get into Illustrator too, but taking things step by step atm.

Currently trying to make my templates into XHTML / CSS and then into wordpress :p.


PS: Would anyone suggest using wordpress as a CMS?

Yeah i had a portfolio, using GetSimple CMS, graphixant.com, but took it down while i work on a better layout. As you can see i just have a twitter update, thanks to Chris for his code.

Ermm, i'll tell you all when it's done. Just gunna get a new layout done. Code it up, maybe use wordpress. If not use GetSimple again and get a album up there using simpleviewer and flickr. (Found a tut on that somewhere).

Other than that, yeah i got a DA.

Thanks for the welcomes.. again!

I have decided to work more on my web layouts. (Practice, practice, and yeah more practice).

I also wanna get used to using Illustrator, as i know it's a great tool. Vectors, Logos, etc. I would love to be a good logo designer.

Then i will lean more towards the coding side. Rather get the design side down first.

Thanks again! Seems a nice friendly community here!

Welcome aboard Ant. Very impressive that you are already getting a good head start on a career in Graphic design and/or Photography. Being that young you can just create and don't worry about work yet though, for now I would say just have fun with it! I'll see you around the forums.:)

Yeah, Rhonda, i have even always loved graphic design. Not so keen on actual art, pen and paper drawing. Well infact, i used to love it until high school and the teachers were just pain in the asses.

I mean, i would look around on freelance websites, but theres no point at the moment. I would rather practice more and more to get my skills :D. But then again, i could always practice by entering something.

We will see ay ;) :D

Thanks for the even more welcomes!

Onartis. Hmmmm, not as far as i know.

The only other places i'm from are like, FringeFX, Digital-Remix and DA. I don't even really go there anymore, as the places are too busy and i don't get feedback. Whereas here, i get loads of feedback, it's great :D

I remember FringeFX. Guy that used to do the graphics for a few vBulletin styles I did spent a bit of time there and I joined up.
