Hi, my name is Tamin. |
I'm 20 and live in California. I am currently in college and intend on becoming an Astrophysicist. I'm currently working on my AA. I love anime and manga. (e.i. Dragonball, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail, etc..) My fav right now is Fairy Tail and Gajeel is definitely my fav character and I ship him hard with Levy XD. I love to read, always have, always will. I mostly use Photoshop CS6/CC (whichever I can get my hands on) but I have had training with other programs (Yay classes!). I also recently taken to making lineart so I use Illustrator CC if your curious.
P.S. I made that pic up there of me ^^
P.P.S. I have limited time to make art so uploads are kinda here and there, sorry... I like to think I make up for it with quality work though XD
