whatever you do, don't listen to iffy, he is giving you terrible advice.
If you wan't to get into illustration, than the Angel Studios are a good option. You'll learn how to paint and draw like the old masters. And when you've mastered Classical Realism, almost anything is possible.
I really have to go now, but i'll come back, just don't take what iffy said to serious. By the looks of it, he has no idea what he's saying. (No offense dude)
Iffy - Are you doing drugs?
I'll explain myself later.. but until then classical realism is da shiznits
Wanted: 30 chinamen and a zeppelin for an elaborate practical joke... can you help?
