Hey everybody!

Just wanted to thank all of you who purchased my Bog Witch tutorial! Everything went better than I had imagined and the response has been great :). I love seeing what people have done after applying the techniques. Also, thanks for all the messages! 

I honestly was hesitant about doing a tutorial because I think most people come into who they are by discovering a path on their own through guess work(trying to match styles but finding new approaches in the process) and constant practice. Tried my best not to have it simply stand as a step by step and more as a 'how I found this approach/how you can find yours' kind of tutorial. I hope thats how it was received, but either way, if you keep working for yourself you'll find whatever voice you end up growing into naturally.

Anyways, just wanted to leave this here and thank you all for supporting the tutorial! This means more time for Steve Lichman, StarVeil, Black Witch, and Skull & Shark!

Thanks again,

I absolutely love the StarVeil project. Such a unique style and the concepts are fantastically original. Great job!

I'd like to see more like those Skeletor and Shedder portraits.  They are amazing.  Maybe do other 80's baddies like Mumm-Ra, (80's) Megatron & Cobra Commander (Stormshadow, Firefly and Zartan would rock too).

I have a feeling that somebody saw your Ninja Turtles art, thought it was awesome (cause it is) and said "Hey, let's put that in a movie."

You have a really great body of work.  It's very diverse but unified in textures and color use, not an easy thing to do.  Thanks for sharing.

you look like Christian Bale; just one of my first thoughts seeing your ID.
