Cheers Lennon, appreciate your comments...and your right, I'm working on those issues. I just invested in more anatomy books (some Bridgman) and have been reading up on colour theory, as well as trying to put it all into practise...its a long process but I feel like I'm learning.
I've been pretty hardcore occupied by work last month or so, I'll hopefully be able to post some in here because I've had some super fun commissions-so although having way too many 14-16hr days and destroying my back, all is good. Not had as much time to spend on it as I'd have liked, but I think towards the end of December I'll have a good few days to spend on last man standing...some of these are for that, and some for other work related things. More, hopefully to follow soon.
