Hi Isaac! I remember your old website, MFZ - and the art on it - from when I was a kid!
Dang, I gotta say, you've gotten really good at illustration. I'm studying art right now and I hope someday that I'll get as good as what I've seen in your gallery. Is there anything you'd recommend for improving my artistic skill? (I'm studying the figure right now mostly, and I'm starting to gain interest in portraits as well..... I like drawing people =P)

Btw whatever happened to Kajin? I remember enjoying his Sonic sprite comic Insonicnia and I'm sad that he's seemingly disappeared to nowhere nowadays; I'd love to know what he's doing now.

Hey, thanks for the warm words! :)

It really depends on what you intend to pursue in art, and the market is much larger than you might think.
I can give you some knowledge/tips, but first what would you like to do? 

Studying the figure was a huge challenge for me, I haven't really posted anything recent but I've been practicing anatomy non stop for roughly a year now, pouring through anatomy books and lessons. When I do post another piece, I want the anatomy to be pretty spot on.

My bro Adam I won't go into too much detail since that's his private life, but he is set to be married in a year and is doing pretty well. We've been working on another private project together, and hopefully in a year or so I can post something from it ^^

That's a really good question; I hadn't actually considered that until now. :confused:
To answer your question though, illustration runs in my blood; I'm a storyteller and a designer, and I want to be able to express any sort of mood or stylistic approach that someone asks of me, whether it be a zany off-the-wall cartoon or a realistic down-to-earth portrait (currently cartooning is my strength; to be honest, I'm a cartoonist at heart so it's not too surprising that's the case).

The figure is challenging, I feel your pain there. I understand the basics but I need to study more of the details such as the individual bones & muscles soon (as well as the head! Gosh that's a difficult thing to draw :O).
What books do you recommend exactly? I own Figure Drawing for All It's Worth & Drawing the Head and Hands (both by Andrew Loomis) and I've been slowly dipping into Bridgman, Hogarth, and Vilppu's books over time as well.

That's awesome!! Congrats to he and his fiancee; as an old fan of his work I wish them both the best! :)
Very excited to hear about the fact you guys are working on something new as well! Looking forward to when you guys eventually put it out :D

Merry Christmas by the way! :)

For illustration, your absolutely going to want to look into background courses then; unfortunately that's an area I intend to look into during 2018 and can't give much advice for yet... 

However regarding Anatomy! Proko.com or the Proko youtube channel is great for learning the individual muscles and bones. But my absolute go to and biggest break through in anatomy was thanks to this book. Honestly 3D artists do anatomy the best, so it only makes sense to learn anatomy in 3D lol; the books on drawing in 2D never did squat for me and it was infuriating. The book does a wonderful job of showing all the muscles from different angles as well as positions, plus grouping and breaking them down into understandable sections. But you're still going to need to practice, and figure drawing is a must. 

My sketches overall have been quicker and more accurate as a result of the above, I'm hoping to produce Majora's Wrath and Oni Link in the near future to show off my new knowledge :) 
Hope this helps! 

Thank you, and hope you have a great New Years tomorrow!
