I've got one advice for you. If you want to draw, even if you don't have talent. Just do it. ;)
Thanks man I'll try and remember that, If I draw I want it to come from my own imagination/inspiraton. I think I'm a pretty good mimic though but it doesn't FEEL the same ya know.
I also took your advice and posted one of my mimic drawings on the housepets fan art gallery, it's nothing special but I figure after a few dozen try's i'll start getting the hang of it.

You just need to give it try. If you won't even try, you won't know ;) But in the first place - have fun from it ;)

Greetings organic batteries, I am Deathwatch, a Scot who is in line to become a British Army Officer.

I found this comic yesterday, read through it, was sad because I eventually caught up with it and decide to join this forum.
About me: I am 16, a good writer (so far I've done three novels as part of a series) and moderate at drawing. A few of my hobbies are: Gaming, Drill, Walking, Geography, history, physics and debating. I am also enjoy making cakes, I show a great interest in tank regiments (where I hope to go) and am fond of both classical and metal music (Apocalyptica filled that gap for me.).

I also happen to be a walking encyclopedia when it comes to military knowledge.

Interesting may not be the exact word to describe someone who occasionally sits in a corner clutching a USSR banner muttering "Capitalists cannot get me, Capitalists cannot get me..." :P

Don''t get me wrong though, I'm the kind of person that would put a slice of C4 in your sandwich just to annoy you. HEIL ANTICS!

Ohai erryone, name's Jose, here you call me Gray, idunno where that gray thing came from, tho. But anyways, I saw one of the strips somewhere and thought it looked funny and cute, and that brought me to the official page, started from the first chapter and by some days I had read them all, I just loved the comic and couldn't just stop, and so now I'm like OH NO MUST WAIT TWO DAYS FOR A STRIP :C , haha, My favourite character is King(even though I'm totally a cat person), but also like grape and Wolf a lot. I somehow like drawing, so by some time I might be posting sum fan art ^^, aaaand I think that's pretty much all, don't want to bore anyone with more of this boring introduction :3

Welcome Deathwatch and Gray!

@Deathwatch: My best friend from primary school was like that, he loved anything to do with weapons, tanks or the military. I wouldn't be surprised if he joined the army by now! Also, I'm currently writing my first book and I just uploaded the prologue to DeviantArt. I know it's a bit forward but I'd love a professional opinion...? :oops:

@Gray: An introduction's never boring, it's the first step to a new friendship! :D I love King too, but I'm a total dog person. :P If you're on DeviantArt, put a link in your signature, it's always fun checking out new artists!
Feel like you need a friend? I'm happy to talk anytime! :D

I'm on DeviantArt now!

This is not an introduction so much as it is a reintroduction. I used to frequent this forum a year or two back, but for whatever reason I stopped coming here. Then I remembered that this place existed. I lurked some of the threads for a day and felt some really strong nostalgia. I'll get to the point now; I wanted to come back, but I had forgotten all my information, so I made a new account. I'm starting fresh.

My name is Chance. I am 17 and I like to read, write, play video games (I don't have terribly unique hobbies). I hope now to metaphorically frolic with you all in a field of internet flowers.

Yup, Cwitt was my old nickname. Just couldn't remember if I used it for a username here. Thanks for the re-welcome, Brent and Sleet.

we wondered where you'd gotten off to. Especially since your old account says it's inactive

Welcome back! The software that supports our forums apparently does not allow validation e-mails to be sent to Yahoo! e-mail addresses. Therefore, when you updated your account information, the system disabled your account due to an inability to confirm the new e-mail address (as an account security measure). If you want your old account back, it shouldn't be too hard for Rick to manually activate it. This wouldn't be the first time I've had him do such a thing. x3

Well, hello there, I guess? My name is Yury, I'm 17 and I currently live in Moscow, Russia (surprisingly). I'm about to leave school, and I plan to enter the Civil Aviation Univercity.
As you could have guessed, my mind is mostly filled with aerospace-related things. Also I tend to write some really short stories, but I never published any of them because they are really unpolished. Maybe later. At some point. When I feel like it. But no promises.
Also I like 50's-70's music (more pop than rock), 70's-90's films (mostly detectives and comedies), strategy and simulator games, and this webcomic, which I found about two weeks ago, but I already got one of the books :D
*quickly looks back at previous introductionary posts*
Well, looks like I've said everything that's needed... Welcome to me! ;)
P.S. No, I don't speak with that Hollywood-ish 'Bad Russian Guy' accent, it's quite difficult for me. But I can try if I get annoyed with that request :D
P.P.S. I guess I still have to pick any character's head from the comic as an avatar, as my drawing is good enough only for airline logos, heheh.
Yes, that is about the best thing to write that I could think of.

For the record, you don't have to use a character from the comic as your avatar. That's just something a lot of people choose. You can make it whatever you want! Within reason, of course.
