My name is Mikkel, better know on the internet as Nilghai. I'm a game developer, and I have been working with game developing the last 4 years. I got my big focus on 3D graphic and 2D textures. I do 3D models for company commercials.

Well, i don't really know what kind of Blog relevant Post this is, but you're seem to be a young talent or you will be one day, if you're developing your skills the next years (but not all of them, otherwise you could be only half good in everything you do ) .
For your Age, there's some promising work to see. Try your best to get involved in some Projects on Desura or Moddb. Practice and Experience should always and ever exist in a (maybe young) creative Mind.

Long Comment, nothing special to say... but this was the most informative Blog Post in the last hours ; )
