Heavy Metal 268 Cover by ISIKOL

AWESOME MOMENT for me!! The legenderay magazine "HEAVY METAL" is using one of my images as their cover for the April issue...
This is indeed my most recognized moment for what im trying to do for the last 3-4 years.
 But this couldn't be possibly if it wasn't forDeligaris  who was teaching me patiently for the last 2 years...
Nick i owe a lot to you and maril1 .thank you so much!
This is for you guys!

p.s. So many wonderful comments. Thank you all guys from the bottom of my heart! :)

:dance:  :eager: :excited:Just wanted to say congratulations. Well deserved.:nod: This must be a very exciting moment for you.:boogie: I would imagine this will open some new doors for you as well as many new opportunities. I remember the first U.S. release of H.M. magazine back in my stoner days.:weed: They regularly featured great artists such as Moebius (may he RIP), Richard Corben and H.R. Giger. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Hey Man, oh my GOD! This is one large steppin' stone my friend, Hope you know what this means, you are now among one of the GREATS! This magazine is well respected by some of the best artists in the world, and now you now in it!!!!!
I apologize I have been so transparent lately I'm reorganizing devineydesigns llc. lot of legal  crap, and have new brushes and designs coming to DAZ plus I took a little time off for my family and me. But I've seen what you been doing and its all so Freakin' Good! just wanted you to know, You are one of my true inspirations when I create material to sell. Without some of your illustrations to promote my products I could probably not been able to take time off.
Just wanted you to know how proud I am of you, and for all striving artists as well, you have given hope to all of us.
You are on your way, and I am glad to be a part of it.
Have a wonderful Day, your friend and admirer.
