Sorry for the lack of updates. I got sick for a few days and it destroyed my momentum - adding to that additional family issues related to the fact that two people I'm close to are getting a divorce.
Also - even though I'm sure she'll never read this - one of the Artists I was following for a long time, StoryPony, recently (within the last day or so) left DeviantArt because of both school and health issues. She actually shut DOWN her dA. Gonna miss her - she had a really awesome and unique art style. A tip of my proverbial glass to her and other Deviants that have gone away.
