I'm an electrical engineer out of a tiny town in Southern California about 2.5 hours NE of LA. I used to draw a lot, but I don't find time or motivation for it any longer really. I started to dabble with photography in October 2010. I am REALLY enjoying it, so expect to see a lot of it from me! I do use my scraps, so don't forget to check those out. I skateboard when I have some place to skate (not very often around here). I'm an avid snowboarder, even if I can't ride like I used to (too old and out of practice now). I used to be a professional gamer. I'm pretty competitive and have competed in some way with just about everything I've ever taken seriously. I'm only a furry by technical default, as I actually consider myself a dragonkin. There are no pictures of my form or whatever, but I have combined a set of pictures and descriptions (link above). I'm an audiophile and LOOOOVE music but also love to make the music sound perfect. I like to work out. I'm also bi...not that that means much, nor should it =P

I miss you so much Athus. You were a cornerstone of my life for 10 years. My closest friend, and often more. Please wait for me.
The world is less without you Panda. You will be missed!
A lot of the photos uploaded here have been in the full, unshrunk dimensions. It is REALLY difficult to appreciate even an amazing picture when it is at 9999999 x 99999999 pixels. Even the best pictures look like crap at their full size. Nevermind image load time and server space. SoFurry even offers a separate submission option that allows you to upload your full sized photograph for printing purposes (icon/avatar/preview size, full size, and standard web viewing size). I recommend people take advantage of that.
Most editing software, I beleive even Microsoft Paint, can scale down an image. Gimp is a freeware program that is almost as capable as Photoshop and competely free (though not available for Mac or Linux), and I know that it is capable of resizing images. If you have Photoshop go to EDIT > IMAGE SIZE (or just hit ctrl+i or cmd+i). You can then resize down using percent or pixels. The dimensions are linked, so if you change the height to "x" pixels, the width will automatically adjust to ...
