I love the details in your lineart/artwork! I love how the hair flows, how the fur looks comfortable to wear, how the rings of the mail in this drawing angled differently, how the weight of the lines vary.

I love the overall style in your gallery!

Mike Moses formerly of Richmond? This ring mail is righteous! the inconsistencies in the lay of them against his side really make this piece happen for me. A super fascinating blend of textures.

The way you organized the tones in this is fantastic--I'm impressed with the technical aspect of this. I sat here for awhile figuring out the order and shapes you printed in order to get the most out of only three colors on tone. Great work.

I laughed a bit when I read "-and- the ability to communicate with birds" (mostly because in my head I heard Eddie Izzards voice saying that line).
