Grazie per i complimenti, KIMAHRI...

La verita e che non lo so quando tempo che cio messo... lo disegnato un poco a la volta, quando avevo un minuto libero in mezzo degli altri disegni (che aspettavo notizia dai diretori per andare avanti). Non so se la risposta fa sensa... pero sono contento che ti piace come e riuscito.

and my favourite independents too. especially in the left corner.

Artistically I love your perspective on this, with the core characters in various depths, but at the same time you avoid the whole 'oh you forgot 'blah blah blah' ' situation with the large amount of shadowed characters. Room for extras.

Looks amazing.
