Thank you! I'm holdin' on as best as I can, today. Hope you're off to a great start, though.
Also, you'll be glad to know (or not) that I found that post about "worst" generation starters and edited it thanks to your amazing interpretation of a Pokemon I never gave much thought to. I mean, I suppose there really is no worst Pokemon design wise, sometimes all that's required is a different angle.
Anyway, really you have inspiring art, and you've gained something of a Combusken convert, so I hope you'll keep up the awesome work!
