Your artwork is really great, Rick! I just wanted to say that you are one of my main inspirations to pick up drawing as one of my main hobbies, and that you achieve something that many other artists don't, and that is keeping an evolving artwork since you're not too shy when attempting new stuff with your art. It's really amazing!

You are so gifted, Rick. Enjoy every moment while you draw your first line on a screen/paper it's like flowers emerge from the pencil/pen and create something marvelous. I mean I know nothin' about art. Wish I can get to that place where you're at now. You'll always be an inspiration in my heart... Love Heart

Y'know? Looking back at the stuff you first submitted here, I can really see where some of your inspiration stemmed from for some of your earlier anthro styles (Yoshitaka Amano for example). It shows that practice really goes a long way.

Though I wanna ask you, when it comes to how you solidified your style, I am assuming you went into some formal art classes. Could you point me in a direction that could help me improve my drawing in terms of bodies/proportions? Like, do you know of any specific turtorials that are really helpful?

Art classes are okay in giving you a variety of things to do and look for, but they don't give you much direction when it comes to "your own style". Your style basically comes from the sum total of everything YOU like.

Though I will say, life drawing teaches you a LOT. Even if you key off of other artist's styles, all styles eventually point back to the natural world, so seeing where those forms come from help you figure out what you prefer the most.

Proportions are good things to memorize in any case; this helped me a lot right here Big Guide to Drawing the Body by Majnouna

I must dare to say, that I'm a HUGE fan of your work.
I've following you from years ago, but I wasn't willing to 
give the watch until now, well, because, I'm kind of shy
in this of Which people do you admire the most?
You're also an inspiration for me, y'know.
