No, you, back to Mayhem. NOW.

Greets. I am Aclute. The reason for my name? Well, I got tired of using random retarded names in the past, and this has already become one of my most fav. sites on the net, so I figured I'd use something more connected to me. My full name is Alexander Clute, so, just to be a smartass, I took the words and put them together. Kinda like the word acute, but with an l.

My interests? Many. I am a huge FPS and RPG game fan. I love animation and coding, though I'm still very mediocre at both. I have a great infatuation with anime and manga, although I'm not at all like what most people on the net call an otaku or weebo. I like a variety of music: Jazz, pop, techno, 70s and 80s hits, etc..

I tend to be spontaneously random at times, which some tend to find annoying to a moderate-high degree. I'm nearly done with highschool, and I just started trying to draw for the first time since about 3-4 years ago. In middleschool, I established a firm belief in my head that drawing was useless and unnecessary for much, but now that I've matured, I see how useful and fun it is. Since I was a kid I've had a wild imagination and even created dozens of my own anime characters in my head, but never could draw them well. After reading EGS, I became inspired to practice like mad and even though my drawings are still like scribbles and I have very few basic tools at my disposal, I intend to get some more advanced tools and continue my practice. I have always had hopes for many things and careers in my life, so I decided as a child that I wanted to be multi-talented, such as being good at programming, animation, and a variety of other things, because broadening my skills would broaden the amount of work I could find available to me later on in life.

I am thoroughly obsessed with EGS, and I have no idea why it inspired me in the first place other than it just did. I find it to be one of the best comics I've ever read and I'm currently attempting to enhance my drawing skills with my newfound hobby of attempting to make my own comic. I've thought of plotlines, characters, settings, the whole shibang, but my drawing skills are still lacking so for now I'm drawing basic sketches of my characters.

Anyway, good to be here!

Greets! I am Aclute. To explain specifically, my name is Alexander Clute, so I took both names and slapped 'em together.

Early on in my middleschool days, I fixated the belief into my mind that drawing would be useless for my future. After reading EGS and becoming obsessed with it, I became inspired to improve my own drawing, which, due to me not having drawn since middleschool, is essentially the level of a child's. Makes me feel insignificant, but it makes me feel happy at the same time because I'm trying to improve an aspect of myself that I just came to realize is a very important part of who I am.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to Dan's future comics!

It wasn't intentional. It was just the first picture of Tedd's complete head in color that he didn't look worried that I came across. I was going to move the eyes to stare up at Elliot, but I got lazy and well you reap the benefits of unintentional crotch humor :sleep:
-Besides, it's more like he is looking towards the abdomen (or some sort of off panel fire Elliot hasn't seen yet)

Ok...I thought I heard it mentioned somewhere (maybe in the newbie intro thread either here or on EGS Mayhem), anyone care to elaborate?
