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.  ;)
