I've been slacking off so far this year... but I managed to get something out for the massive Last Man Standing thunderdome at conceptart.org. Kind of a rush job... and looking at all the amazing entries people came out with, I'm feeling pretty motivated to start busting my ass again. The level gap between me and the pros is glaring me in the face, so I can't wait to start improving myself. Wasted half a year, and life is too short for that.
Go check out the last man standing threads in the finally finished forums on conceptart.org. Some high quality stuff.
