Hello there, my name is ampyeen, or Collyn as I commonly go by. I've been sort of in the mix of Valve games since TF2 first was announced but I never had a proper computer to play any games other than that until 2014. With my options limited I've taked quite a huge liking to TF2. I've been here a few times before but decided against signing up for a while now since I wasn't really proficient with Hammer at all. Most of my experience had come with learning from 3kliks and messing around with Garry's Mod for the most part, but now I'm taking a stronger interest in solid projects that could have a bigger finished result. My biggest skills overall are probably 2D and 3D asset creation however, I'm like, a year into Blender and maybe a week into 3ds Max. I have a ton more to learn unfortunately. Actually that's kind of why I'm here. To learn. Maybe make friends. ...I already know a couple of people here as friends, but I'm not sure if I should mention them by name since they're sort of high-profile here, and I don't know how that would come off as. If they wanna disclose below, they can. Also I don't usually talk like this. I'll loosen up in time, probably.
