I just wanted to say I came across your art on the Guild Wars 2 wiki and I was blown away. Want you to know that your artwork will be the skin of my new laptop. Keep doing what you do you're awesome.

Does anyone know if Rich's tutorials are still available? He had a forest horseman, a cliff scene, and one other one I think.

HUGE CONGRATZ to you Richard... I'm really glad for you bro. Keep us updated with your progress, I'm sure you'll learn so many new things over a new place.

Your work is very inspiring and absolutely fantastic!

It would be awesome if you posted some videos of your painting process. I'd love to see one of these paintings grow from a blank canvas into the finished product.
