Mostly I write fantasy novels. I have been doing that since I was 10-11. Most of the things I draw now is traditional art related to my writing but I want to do digital once I learn how to use my tablet. I spend alot of time playing around on the computer when I'm not writing. >.<
Your situation is almost parallel to mine haha! I've also been on here for two years, but I've recently been getting active in the community. Digital art is one of my primary arts. I've made a few pixel icons quite a while ago, but I've found that it's not really my specialty.
I can shamefully say I haven't read the lotr books, but I've seen the movies and I liked them! I've read all the hp books though, and loved them all! I've seen the first few episodes of doctor who, but not much more than that. It seems like a pretty interesting show, though!
