So, you are honest and this get's called "hostility".
Yeah, ok, if anyone thinks I am harsh, go do some real work for a REAL publisher, see what happens with your little "sensative"  attitude.
This is why I am NEVER working with another creator again, too many flakes.
When you first meet someone and think, "wow, they are an idiot" then you give them the benefit of the doubt, and get proved right.

Anyone who knows me, knows if I am gonna be hostile, I won't "sound" hostiel.

I think it's time for me to get back into publishing, at least some limited edition books, focus on quality, and just move forward.

Been learning some really cool colour techniques this summer, it's been my focus to increase my skills, I have kind of ignored colour for a long while, but now I find I can produce the kind of work I have always dreamed of doing, so now I need a project to apply these skills to.

My biggest regret is that due to health issues, I can no longer use Markers, at least not the good solvent based kind, so I figured out a process in which I can use the cheap-o dollar store water based markers to create a base, then apply Coloured pencil on top, blending it all into a cool effect.

Here is an example of the technique for your enjoyment.

Not the best scan, my scanner is dying and so is my Mac Mini, it's doing stupid usb tricks, which is usually the logic board.
But time will tell, I have to figure out a way to photograph the art, then import the images, I think this will give me a much better colour and saturation.

We can still see the idea that this mixed-media technique is clearly working for you -- so run with it!
