Damn, I'M proud of your achievements :P
And I look forward to learning from your experiences.
I also find your drawing skills intriguing. I used to draw caricatures, and didn't progress towards anything more advanced than that, but would really like to learn how to draw realistic paintings. Do you have any work online?
Also, you might wanna check out the Iman Maleki
site. I think his paintings are excellent, especially the woman sitting down writing a letter.
Take care, and all the best!
