This is such an amazing piece! All of the fine details, wrinkles, skin textures. I didn't know his name, but I knew exactly who he was when I saw him.
I wish I had the /time/ to put into learning as much as you have on doing this. But, maybe I made the /mistake/ of going to college and not getting any advance in a job regardless of having done so. So now I have to work full time to pay off my loans. *sigh* I have been messing around with Blender though here and there, and trying to learn it/relearn skills I haven't used in sometime by just looking up online tutorials. I would love to have a good copy of Maya, but hell would have to freeze over before I could actually afford to buy it. XP Again....the loans. Right now it's easier and not /quite/ as time consuming for me to practice 2D art instead. But on that alone, I feel there is still enormous amounts I need to learn before I will /really/ be all that good. People like my stuff, but I still feel as though I don't know nearly enough, or as much as I really should. But working forty hours doesn't always leave me with a lot of drive to sink loads and loads of time into even video games anymore.
