Well, let's see... I would have to say it all started back in '72. That was the year I was born. Grew up in sunny San Diego, and ended up spending the first 23 years of my life there. I could describe them, but I would bore you to tears, so we'll just leave it at that. I attended San Diego State University, and worked as graphic designer extraordinaire for Woodstock's pizza, where I continually drew little dragons (the mascot of Woodstock's), until I accidentally graduated from school.
I spent several weeks discovering, by trial and error, the techniques needed to make practically anything out of brushes. What I know is just the result of alot of hard thinking, and staring at a computer screen. I havent talked to Carmak or anyone that is really educated on the subject of 3d engines, and I’m sure that if I did, I’d have more to say on this subject.
