That’s right.
Still writing and the story is coming together nicely. This is gonna be so awesome!! XD (I hope) You have to “touch people’s hearts”, remember? ;) You can never avoid EVERY cliché, but if you focus on how the characters deal with everything, instead of the plot itself, it’ll work out :) Plot and logical connections are important of course, but the humanity and authenticity of the characters is what really matters. <3 <3 I think I’m getting the hang of this “writing-thing”. I was told being able to draw AND write gives you a huge advantage. (thank you, workshop)

I thought you guys deserved a little update. Don't worry, it will continue! I'm also planning to make some extra illustrations (that would be added as extra pages if it were to be printed one day. Leave that to me.)
Thank you all for your patience. I will indulge you as soon as I can :D

Oh and...buy lots of tissues. The drama, it just comes out of my hand and on the page. This story basically writes itself XD

Hey me again.  Sorry if i'm being that annoying fan you just want to stangle and enjoy watching his eyes explode in his sockets but I just have another question.  How long exactly did it take for you to perfect your art style.

Haha! No worries =p Oh jeez, it's far from perfect, but my current style developed over the last year or so. Of course, I've been drawing since I was 2. The key is to learn realism first. You can always branch out to any style from that, but realism has been successful for thousands of years. Every time I discover a new artist I like, it influences my style and changes it, hopefully for the better.

Haha, thanks, man :D Glad you enjoy my stuff. I'm basically self-taught, books and internet. I did do art school (graphic design) in college a few years ago, because I thought I'd need a degree. Turns out I don't. You just need the skill =p I barely learned anything at school. In fact, they told me to try out different stuff, but I didn't like that. I knew what I wanted to draw, but for some reason the teachers kept breaking my focus and made me doubt myself. I could never tell if they honestly thought I was good or not. Kinda made me depressed. But when I graduated I regained my focus, found some new great artists to learn from and here I am :) Honestly, I've improved a lot more outside of art school. They just didn't seem to have the right knowledge. 
What I do is, I find great artists I like and research in detail how they make their art. Their techniques, use of color etc. You just have to find the right people and for me they are almost all on the internet. Art school never did it for me, especially if you can already teach the teachers XD

Sorry for the long text =p Just my little story. There's books online you can download, like Andrew Loomis his stuff etc. Very useful for learning the basics. My goal is to always keep improving and bring fun and entertainment to people :) So hopefully, my art will keep getting better ;) Thanks again for the comment. I really appreciate it.

Mostly Andrew Loomis books. It's a real guidebook to drawing. It teaches anatomy, perpective and so on. There are multiple books from Loomis. Just type Andrew Loomis PDF, maybe something will pop up on google. I also have 2 books from Alex Ross, but they just have illustrations and sketches, no tutorials. He's awesome! Once you have the basic knowledge, you can learn just by watching someone paint or even by looking at the artwork itself. I like Matt Busch's work too. They're all illustrators. Anything I find really. There's a lot of stock photos of people here on DA to pratice figure drawing too. There's no limit :)
