I used to have that board bookmarked but forgot all about it.  It's cool they still use it. 

And no problem, you're stuff is awesome.  Sorry I barely use this site anymore.

I've been a lover of your artwork for the past 4 years and it has been the sole influence on my own work. Thank you so goddamn much for existing and making art, without it I would not have felt driven to improve my own creative outlets.

Hey, dude, have you ever thought of doing "Speed drawing" footage of your work in progress? It would be great to see (I have never really been able to work out how you do the highlights in you work). Here is an example of what I mean - [link]

hey sorry for taking awhile to get back to you but I'm stuck doing everything on my phone for now

I have thought about doing something like that I just don't have the means for that right now. as for highlights, I do them with a Bic whiteout pen and sometimes I color into those highlights.
