Thank you, Lai! I myself am totally speechless at your compliments, I will strive to justify your faith and apreciation in my future work...God! it was hard trying to be serious for a change, thanks again my dear!

I regret that I havent clicked into this one earlier, though I've seen its thumbnail many times!
I am totally speechless cause I have seen very few artists nowadays with such serious skills like you. The animation in the boy's face, the vivid expression of the man (that's you, right? I shall say you are a funny guy, hehe) are just perfect. It seems everybody is turning to "digital" nowsdays, but your skill and idea will make your works always the best.

Oh I see you are Robin Hood, disregard my comment on your self portrait, I hadn't even seen this image yet and I thought you looked like Robin Hood. This is awesome, beautiful composition!

Thanks Sean! great comment, I didn't want to get too heavy with such a famous legend, so I opted for a more wimsical look

Oh, James - WONDERFUL! My most favorite legend, and he's awesome! I especially love the colors in the sky and the expressions on Much and Robin's faces. Just beautiful!
