you're a great artist but I have a question, and it's not to insult or crit in a bad way but I've noticed a few artists..probably more than a few actually have a Adam Hughesesque look to their work. Do think this is just a coincidence that I'm noticing or are higher level pencilers/artists being influenced by Hughes style?

Well, most artists are infuenced by other artists, and Adam Hughes is one of the most popular and best artists, so it would make sense that there would be a lot of artists who have an work inspired by him.

Adam has been a favorite artist of mine and I always list him as an influence.

thanks for clearing that up for me, I don't know why I never caught that before. A good/obvious example of this is Matt Hoffman and Frank Frazetta, pretty sure Hoffman was heavily influenced by Frank's style.

Love your work. So many artists just try to perfect drawing bodies and fall short on the face. Your faces are not only beautiful but always have such good expressions, which I think is more important to a character than how big their boobs are.

Especially with sketches, I make sure the face is correct before I get too carried away with anything else.

Real nice piece. I gotta try doing some sketches w/ my prisma pencils on Canson. I love the texture that the Canson Paper gives. Very inspiring.

super cool sketch! Did you do all your sketching at the table ?

No - it's impossible to get it all done at the table - I try to do a little bit at my hotel room before the show each day just to keep up.
