Eyepaint: Thanks! I've really begun to love ballpoint in the past couple years.
Munin: Wow, thanks so much for the compliments! I really do love the fantasy stuff, it's not quite as popular here, but it is one of the most challenging subjects to do realistically and very difficult to give input on sometimes. Ballpoint pen has made me much more confident, kind of forces it in a way, but now I just cover my mistakes with hatching!
Maria: Thanks! I'll be honest though, my trick to good hatching is to work small.
JJ: Thank you so much, I have really enjoyed sharing it all. I have done a couple other sketches but my pages are incomplete yet, so I have to finish them before I go on sharing them.
