I usually make it a point to thank everyone individually, because I never take interest in my work - by anyone - for granted, but in this case it's just too much! Every single comment and is truly appreciated though! It means a lot.

Thank you very much to *TreeClimber for the valuable WIP input and suggestions!
Had this one lying around for a couple of weeks, but had just not the time and spirit to put it up here^^ Well. Ain´t much to say here, but to tell you that my whole attention now rests on "traditional" art. That´s why there weren´t many updates from me lately
All made in PS, without references. 3-4 hours if I recall correctly...
