First, thanks for the fav.

The advice I like to give to young artist is simply continue drawing whenever you can as often as you can.
Draw from life, meaning see the world around you and draw it. A tree, a car, a person sitting on a park bench.
Always have a small sketchbook on hand to doodle
and start taking life drawing classes. Drawing from a live model will really improve your work.

I know many artist are making the switch to an all digital workflow but oddly I hope it the traditional doesn't completely disappear. There's something nice original pencil and ink piece.
That said, you have a very nice style and pacing. I was just commenting on the pages of a young artist about the need to mix up viewing angles and provide environments for the characters to be in. I so hope he looks at you work.

Thank you for your kind comments and the watch.

I agree with you that I hope traditional methods do not disappear.
All the slick toys in the world will not make you a better illustrator, only the constant practice of your craft will which i have spent my lifetime doing.

I started using digital apps as a expansion of my skills not as a crutch, and a way to make some of the aspects of what I do quicker.

Thanks again
