Haha, Okay I can accept to be a monster in a good way! When I first started painting some 3 years ago my work took a couple of days to complete a image and it still only looked half decent. But now 3 years later they go way faster so what I want to say is - Paint, paint, paint because it's the only way to improve. And I'm very happy you like it.
Thanks Sorr-ding-ding (I will never stop with those names! MOAHAHA!). Tablet will make things sooo much easier for you. Linework and such can be corrected super easy. Plus you can post it here on DA without using your bad cam.
