Your videos really got me working hard on my artwork, so from me to you, a personal thank you and keep up the great work.  I purchased several of your videos from Idrawgirls and they were extremely helpful.  If you ever have a spare few moments, I'd love to hear any thoughts/critique on my work. You're great man.  ;)

Hi Xia!! It's me!! You know the guy that needs your help on the video game but, you requested a $50,000 sign in bonus contract which I can't b/c I'm not Bill Gates and I have no money at all? :3

XIA! You the man! I love your work, you've brought me so far with my work in the long run. I've been using your tutorials for over a year or two now on and off when i've had the time. I'm just trying to adjust to overlay now. By far you're one of my favorite concept artists! Your style is awesome. Thanks for giving tips and tricks and how to's for all these years for free. I've even bought one of your tutorials, very helpful. Thank you! Have a great 2014! :D
