I was always fortunate enough to meet and talk with LazyDez after a while, and soon enough became friends. I won't lie, as it's on my FA page, but he's my primary art inspiration. The reason I got back into artwork was due to how much his own style motivates me. I don't know exactly what it is, but seeing his work makes me want to push myself and try to one day become close to his own.
I struggled with the poses and honestly had a friend -Cough VernonCross Cough- help out with it, as well as some tips on the anatomy as I was going along. The background took me a while, first time doing a full background on that sort of detail or so, and that water man...water sucks. XD Usual errors with hands/feet/faces but hey, we can't all be perfect right off the bat!
