Heyyyy, putting aside any ill-will whatsoever, I think your gallery is very impressive! Your figures and their framing within a scene are incredibly dynamic, and your rendered works are dripping with professionalism. Looking at your comic and comic-styled art pieces, I envy your skill in spotting blacks - I'm not too good at it, but looking at your stuff really helps me out. SWAT Kats, eh? Haven't seen that show in ages. Your fancomic makes me want to revisit the series. Your art style really pays tribute to the cartoon, I gotta admit.

I'm also a Vegeta fan. \o/

Betaaaaa! :wave:  I hope you are well, just saying hi after a long lull from DA. I've been going at my projects so I'll have more to show everyone.  I look forward to your new posts whenever they come :-)
