I was just surfing some info over at the CGSociety site when I came across your 04-18-2013, 07:14 PM post. I just wanted to tell you that I feel your work is absolutely stunning.Your style, cinematic and character development and modeling, is, to me, new and innovative. Your storyboard artwork and presentation were equally as remarkable and unique. I am also a CG artist and illustrator working on a short film. I didn’t go to college for CG, but I have a college education. I simply wanted to tell you that your work is excellent and above par. I’m going to follow your progress and hope to see your project make a major impact, so please don’t give up or out. Thanks for the inspiration. It came at the right moment!
