    Thanks for that site! That's something that I've also been toying with the idea of.
    I go online sometimes, but ... everyone's spelling is really bad, and it's ... depressing.

    Wow, your'e a pixel artist? I'm sorry I'm intruding into this topic but do you have some links for pixelart tutorials? Frankly my favourite res is 320x240 and I'd like to learn more about some techs. I'm sort of an artist, well not famous yet, but who knows

    Yea ... check Zoggles' site for a bunch of tutorials. Pixelation also had a nice link list, but it's down currently.

    I know its not much but I was a QA tester for 4 months. I had dreams ever since I was younger of working in the industry and was happy to finally get the chance (all be it a short one). I just wanted to say that please evaluate everything before jumping into things. There is a lot more work involved (especially hours spent and stress) in any job in the game industry, especially a designer, more than I ever thought it would be. Be prepared for shitty hours and hard work. It may not be that way everywhere, but from my experiece and talking to others it's not a cakewalk. I'm not saying any job should be easy, but when you have dreams sometimes you may overlook or not realize all of the aspects. Good luck and I hope you reach your dreams. If you would like, I can share my short experience with you anytime...just send me a PM.
