A stick can be anything to a child, and this child is ready to lead his knights to victory.
I drew the above at the tail end of lunch yesterday.
Intro to Me: I'm a programmer by trade, but I enjoyed drawing when I was younger. I was self-taught, never followed the "draw circles and boxes" rules in those learn-how-to-draw books, and created stories and the illustrations to go with them. I used to draw the people in my grade school, and it was amazing how well they turned out. The drawings, not the people. I don't know how the people turned out.
I took drawing and painting in high school. I never could get the hang of charcoal. I still have some of my drawings somewhere in my parents' basement.
Fast forward, I graduated with a BS in computer science, taking a few 3D programming courses. So if you need someone to use bezier curves or quaternions to animate your works of art, I can do that, but I'm still learning how to use the Gimp and Blender myself to create things. I was able to follow a Photoshop tutorial in the Gimp to create a cool space scene, though. Yes, there were lens flares, but I'm not ashamed. I didn't know better.
I'm out of practice, and it shows. I joined the club because I want to get back into drawing again. You don't know how many times I wanted to hit CTRL-Z with my pencil.
