  24. beautiful beautiful work, man. Glad you have a blog.
    Two of these seem to share a common staring point? It happens to me a lot, getting a shape I like and playing with it in different sketches.

  25. Replying to everyone via email unless no default blogger email is given.

    German: Thanks! That's definitely a tool I use often but I think the two in question are actually two shots of the same scene/cinematic and were painted to directly correlate. :)

  28. Why isn't any of your work in the GW2 art book? Who do I have to blame for that misjustice?
