I am a big fan of anime, manga, video games, and J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, and those are the things I tend to skin. Also, since I don't use the cursors myself and don't have an icon editing program, I don't skin them. Same goes for MikroAmp. And I guess I should mention that I only skin images, not designs.
Other than that, I'm a college student at a really scary place where everyone's smarter than you are, so I tend to skin to escape difficult problem sets and stress in general. My other interests include reading, tarot, and chemistry.
