I started photoshopping and web designing when I was in grade 5 (obviously my stuff weren't great) and haven't stopped till a few years ago. University took a toll on my hobbies I made really "cute-sy" stuff that not a lot of people can accept though..but then I slowly started working with vectors and "real" images. Here are some I did most of them as sig/av requests for the forum I used to go to. If anyone wants a sig/av or anything, you can feel free to ask! I really want to practice again.
I use no stocks, brushes, only downloadable fonts and the tools on photoshop
Some of the hand-drawn pixel stuff I drew and then animated
