It's been 4 years since I've last been on DS and wow, time sure flies when you're having fun.
I am now 22 years of age. I graduated from school with a BS in Software Engineering and an AS in Hardware Engineering. I have a full time internship deal going on right now and I am very content with life!
I remember my DS days fondly. I remember the little competitions we had around here and the tutorials we'd write to improve the community
I wish I could come back here and say I practiced with Blender for 4 years, but somehow life gets really busy; I haven't touched Blender in years.
Fortunately, I have always loved web development and that fills my void for artistic experimentation quite handedly
I just wanted to stop by. I am at work right now and I accidentally clicked on a dusty old Blender materials link. It reminded me of this community and I had to see if everybody was still alive. Great memories in my old pm's and posts. You guys are great.
I see major improvements from Brektzar, Spartan-001, and DJM. I remember everybody on the "leaderboard" on the front page. IrascibleOne! I was always really impressed of your skills. I copied my Blender color scheme to match your videos because I liked DS so much. I come back to DS and I can't say I'm surprised to see it's changed once more
That car tutorial though, I still remember the render to this day. I miss Nismo, it is sad to see that he still has not returned.
I'm waiting for my life to settle down a bit more, but I hope to get back into Blender at some point. Expect to see more of me if that happens
