First, I'd like to thank-you all for those who have been following this blog, whether making yourself known or not. It really helps out when you're looking around like a frightened animal who hasn't seen light for what seems a lifetime, and receiving a positive compliment. It makes me feel a lot better, honestly. I'm not aware that my work effects others, since I'm mostly too busy checking out other's work! So, thank-you.
Also, here is the finished pencil drawing of my thesis character, Lily. Paul Felix has made a huge influence on my work as of late, and I tried to emulate it here. His ability to make the unbelievable tangible in his illustrations is mind-blowing, like Milt Kahl's uncanniness to animate. Paul deserves so much more recognition than he receives. So here's to you, Paul!
Also....Go Apolo Ohno!! He's amazing!!
