Wow.. You're not 17 and you're that good of an artist? I'm envious! I was no where near as awesome as you when I was that age! In fact, I really sucked! hahahaha I totally did that too! I used to write silly stories like that, all the characters were my age and they were doing all sorts of important stuff.. and they're like.. as you said, 12 year olds. hehehe!
It's just funny now. I used to have to write all my stories with the characters being my age, but now all the comic characters are alot younger (around six years younger, some more, some less) but it no longer bothers me at all. I'm really not sure why..
whooo 3D rpg character is cool. That program sounds pretty fun to play with, especially since you don't have to do all those annoying models. Oh, that's what sucks about 3D programs, you have to have a shit load of RAM to run them. I know how that is, I'm always trying to run MAX and I've only got 128mgs of RAM. It crashes constantly... ^^;
