Thanks for the recent :+fav:s Mark - much appreciated! I actually seem to have got to the end of the Covid induced madness at work and have time to draw! Actually going to finish the Centauri competition that I ran (don't tell me how long ago it was I started that!) Anyway - hope all is going well :)

Neal Adams tribute - Ms Mystic
George Perez Tribute: Starfire

You're welcome. Glad you're finding the time to draw. I always look forward to the results :)

Hope to see more stuff from you soon - I finally got back to that Centauri competition you took part in (don't ask me how long ago that was) so my take on your Centauri clone is in the works :)

Thanks for the :+fav: for the latest commission - hope all is going well :)
