o_o Thanks everyone for the crits and comments on the art!
Gah, turns out the guy I scouted (who was totally awesome) decided to just stay at Deviant-art. If anyone has the link so I can put it here, lemme know!
He's wicked. I'm surprised (and happy) that I got to him first :D but sad now that he's gone!
Also: this is a study I did from the Visual Development artist Paul Lasaine, from a piece he did for 'Surf's Up!'. (Not gonna upload it to portal because it's not original)
