So I have a confession to make to you guys. I fell real far behind on keeping up with replying to comments and the shit got way out of control with over 500 unanswered comments from me to you. It actually became a bit of a stressful feeling for me so I was trying to get back to each of you to say "Thank you" or give at least a nod so you know that, yes, I do read your comments and I appreciate every one of you. Anyway, the truth is that it was getting really time consuming to attempt to reply to everyone (especially because new comments come in with new art) so i had to go and delete all open comments and active conversations. It may be stupid of me to feel guilty over this, but I seriously hate doing such things. It just feels rude to never (or even rarely) reply to comments I I've never wated to be that guy. The DA community is great and I'd be half the artist I am with out you folks around.

With that said this is my attempt to buy you off and ask forgiveness. ;) I have a BUNCH of really nice stuff lined up to release over the next couple of weeks and I hope you stick around to see it. It's the beginning of a new convention season which means lots of cool covers and shit!

I really love this one. A lot of comic artists suffer from same-girl-different-hair syndrome, but her face is so unique and refreshing. She has this gettable girl-next-door kind of vibe that really goes well with the holiday spirit.
