Thanks a lot for the watch, Ireally appreciate it! ^^
Np ^^

I dig your skeksis art and anatomy studies/tutorials. Useful for drawing skeksis.

And I dig your take on Sil a lot.

Thanks for such kind words! ^^
I'm really glad to know you enjoy my skeksis art, particularly the tutorials: been trying my best to render the most helpful ones I could! ^^
There's many more of them coming, about character expressions, head angles, skeksis anatomy 101, body types, clothing and added bulk (something that's really a thing with skeksis), and Ocs. 
I'm trying my best to finish and edit the next ones off so the next should be out pretty soon now ^^

Oh! Haha, that's amazing ^^ I'm happy to know you do ^^ (I admit that I always felt like the old depiction of Sil as the guy whose real motivation and his innermost plans you never completely guessed was...idk, honestly more appealing (at least to me,as an old fan) than the new full-fledged psychopath version who is literally a murderer and is basically always the culprit for anything bad happening anywhere.)
This is of course just a matter of preferences and nothing more, liking his new version is equally good ^^ However, it's refreshing and nice for me to see someone say they enjoy my "classic" take on the character as someone who actually is basically "envy incarnate" in many senses, and has the main motivation to gain approval, appraisal and admiration from his peers- and hopes to do this by gaining power. 
Have you ever seen the "Dark Crystal Creation myths" comics? ^^ *I'd recommend them, along with the Legends of the Dark Crystal manga ^^ *I think they're nested online for a free read tho I don't know where ^^; *
Those books wrote what I personally feel is the closest approach to how skekSil "felt like" in the old movie (again, this is just my opinion and it's fiction, all versions are okay and valid ;) )
To not spoil, I'll just say that in one of those stories, there's a phrase, most likely attributable to Sil, which says "Is there not a single being that will show me compassion? Is there really no love for me in all creation?!" -  
That's the innermost face of his character in a nutshell.   At least, the way I intepret him ^^

*Text wall, sorry, I am too talky sometimes ^^; *
Thank you, again, for so much kindness, I hope you'll enjoy my next uploads and find the next tutorials useful enough! ^^
I like AOR version of him, but I see it as him being stuck trying to hold the idiots of his court back from ruining -everything- he worked hard for. And it still went to all hell.

And yes, I fully agree SilSol was the Dark Heart. They were a singer and felt rejected by the world, and Sil is just a reaction from it. When no one likes you and treats you like scum, why should you care what they think?

Yet, in the end, he wants care and love and affection. He just feels he cannot get them through normal means. Like how skekEkt and skekAyuk are okay with each other and so are skekSo and skekZok. They CAN have genuine friendships, Sil is just bad at being open.

And no problem with the text wall ^^
