@jose-ramos Thank you! Yeah, it looks great. just the boost I needed to keep me from giving up haha! I took classes from lee years ago and he's been prodding at me to get involved here and I GUESS he's probably right (as always).

People always willing to help. Thanks for the great compliment. I am working on that book right now. It is a Christmas tale from Tolstoy. Have a Happy Drawing day!
Welcome to the forums- I can relate. I used to do website coding as well (HTML, CSS and WordPress PHP stuff) but it turned into really boring web maintenance and coding rather than focus on design when I did it for local clients and I developed depression over the years doing it and got health problems. Much happier now doing what I want to do for a change.
