My FacebookTumblr, and Twitter be here; I'd be very glad to connect with you!

Thank you so, so much for looking at this work. Emoticon: Bow You may see these original characters of mine appear in Skye! (The crazy-haired boy is "Hazen*," his friend with crazier hair is "Aria," and the chubs puffball is a not-so-smol Honduran white bat doing cardio.)

I wanted to give this as a gift artwork out to the super-sweet and impossibly patient friends who commissioned artwork from me over the years, but feel like I could have planned the perspectives and dynamism of this piece significantly better; I aim to do better next time! -- A dear person pointed out that "I've learned a lot; next time, I'll use that to do better, and learn even more" is something I say a lot, so I must get faster, learn faster, and make better work for y'all

= = = 

But for right now, I have an idea! I think y'all may like the background of this piece, so I'll release that after polishing it up! Here's a potato-quality sneak peek

The amount of detail in this is awesome and I love the mood it sets.

Do you might if I give one bit of con crit though? This is a solid enough piece as is, but I just wanted to mention something to keep in mind in future, not related to the perspective and dynamism as far as I know.

Ahahaha! I did dump a huge file onto DeviantART (which is so accepting of giant files. I'm uploading work to Artstation [10 MB limit] and Drawcrowd [2 MB limit] and have had to re-save a smaller version of many pics to keep 'em under Drawcrowd's tiny file limit.)

Oh, Pat'...! As I was looking at your avatar... I just noticed that you and kaleidomaru (Mark) both boast Bastion profile pics!
