Its astounding to see how much your style has changed over the years. the foundations are still there, sure, but if I didn't know you and someone showed me this compared to one of your older crusades inspired drawings, I never would have guessed that it was by the same artist. I guess it takes a while for your to learn how to play (or in your case, draw) like yourself, but regardless, you still remain one of my favorite artists to this day.
My life may have gone in a very different direction from yours after I left SVA. Truth be told, I barely sketch anymore, but I've had the opportunity to be around some amazing people in my time as I tried to find myself, and you were one of them. So thank you for doing what you do. My life was made a lot brighter in knowing you.
