You have excellent character designs, I hope you make more some time.
Thank you kindly!
Many thanks for the watch!! :D
Your contribution to the Drakengard 2 thread was the best goddamn thing. Kudos to your work!
Oh man, thanks. You know, I really should draw more stupid-awesome stuff for Lets Plays...
Same. Hell, I have a ton of dumb ideas I need to start scribbling for the FF8 thread.
great art. Look also to my drawings.
