*hugs* Hey man, it's natural to go through downs. This is probably not the first time.
I always loved Mat's prophecy, that he has to lose half the world.

Hey bud! thanks a lot for the words of comfort! I have been very busy with work and my baby girl. I am mostly browsing DA now and not submitting any works. I have several uncompleted paintings (at least 12-15 and counting lol). Some pencil and the rest digital. I will be back!!

I count on you buddy, I'll be back to activity as soon as I finish this project. Posting here and there.
Congrats on the baby girl, are you newly fathered again? :D

Tip for the future, post WIPs, I have seen it that people love to see those as well.

Thank you very much! I am glad you enjoyed my WoT works! Sorry for the very late response. I am so busy right now I barely so much on DA.

Oh dear, this one is actually great!:D The portrait looks like the Matt from the second to last book. Have you caught up reading yet?

Thank you very much! I only just picked up reading WoT from where I stopped. Abut 30% into book 11, but I am very distracted. My wife and I are expecting our first child within the week :D

Ah right!:) Now I know what I can safely say and what not;).

How exciting it must be to have your first child! Maybe it'll be a Christmas child:D. I wish you and your wife all the best in the new year and with the little one. Hope everything will go smoothly:).

Thank you very much!! We are very excited for the baby's arrival! I am also hoping she comes this year, the due date is the 28th of December :) This will also probably mean less activity from me on here for a while....granted I have not been submitting paintings lately.

Lol, but I can totally understand. I would be very distracted too if I were expecting (not for a few years still I hope). I wish you the best of times and good luck on being a dad!:)
