@JwichmanN hope it is nice to meet you. Never heard of you.
But you got some nice booties mind if I make some of it come alive?
You, sir, are a legend - an immensely skilled illustrator! I hope that some day, my own pin-ups are a fraction of the quality of yours. Probably won't happen, but it'll be fun trying. :)
Thanks my dude. I'll give you the same 2 pieces of advice given to me. Admire your heroes, but don't worry about what anyone else is doing, put 100% of your energy into your work and you'll achieve whatever plan you set forth! second, practice, practice, practice and when you think you've practiced enough, practice more! good luck. I'm excited to see what stories you have to offer the world!
