Umm.. i'm not really good with words.. I'll try to make it short. I want to thank you ALL for you kind words and support.. Umm, idk.... drawing's gotta weird for me overtime.. I mean, not like in a BAD way, but it's shaping me as a person. I never thought I could turn my hobby into a profession, let alone even draw like this.. And I can't say I wasn't taught because I was blessed enough to have Alvin mentor me(so sick!!). Even getting the attention of all my inspirations, Joe Mad, Arn, AKIMAN?!?! Just the thought of it makes me wanna go back into my cave and practice constantly. Oh yeah.. i know i mostly post up roughs, thank you guys for dealing with those.. but I feel as though I'd rather perfect things little by little than make some HUUUUGE illos, and have like 2 mistakes.. I know, dumb logic, you should do big things regardless.. but I'm dumb like that. Okay let me stop rambling. I drew Ryu cuz he's basically the embodiment of self-improvement. It was either him or Goku...... I should've drew Goku....... I wish I could hadouken.. anyways... keep practicing.. And DON'T be discouraged if you message a famous artist and don't get a reply, or here i think it's a watch.... cuz most likely they're working,and if not that they're practicing.. they don't hate you or think they're too cool..... I'm rambling again. Sry. Late!

Definitely do some more finished stuff, dude. Compositional work, etc, even though you'll have mistakes. There isn't a perfect piece of art out at all in the world, man, but remember having slight imperfections make things better in the long run. :)

Well deserved 300K, bro. WELL DESERVED. :dance:
