My seven-day link lock has expired, so I thought I'd start posting and say hi. I'm Matt Harding (aka Debu), a professional illustrator living and working out of Comberton, England. I'm a huge fan of all things TCG (I have a card YouTube channel, Joker's Wild, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAI-SZuwTN6fVAPz1Za3vqg; it covers all games, both digital and paper).
My experience with Duel Masters goes back a long way. Way back when the game first came out in the English language, I remember seeing it and getting excited, because I had just gotten into Yu-Gi-Oh! - it was the artwork that really appealed to me. I didn't get into it then, which was a mistake, but DM did have an effect on me.
... Fast forward twenty years or so, and I'm finally getting into the game properly. I've gone into considerable debt buying the starter decks up until Shadowclash, and am intending to teach my dad how to duel so that I've got someone to play with. I'll be posting DM videos to my channel as they're finished, too. So yes, a fairly good start to the hobby.
Speaking of, I've already posted about this, but as an artist, I'm always on the look-out for people that need artwork; if you've got a project that you would like illustrated, please feel free to either DM me, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org - all the work would be totally free of charge (the reward is working with great people on great projects). If you'd like to see my portfolio, it's at http://debureturns.deviantart.com - no DM artwork on there as of yet, but maybe that's something the forum could help me with.
That's about it. It's great to be here; I hope I can help some of you out in my own way, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you're interested!
