This book was a big inspiration to start Barbarian Lord.

I cannot get enough of your warm-up sketches. Your line-work is so confident and your ideas so unique and complete! Sigh....(someday I will get there ^_^ )

Thanks Mike! But I'm not sure I know what you're talking about--your work looks great!

Thanks, that means a lot coming from you! Your work has been a major inspiration for me over the years (At least 2006...might be earlier! haha)

What I am specifically referring to is your sketches. Your lines are very loose, but yet exact..and convey complete ideas in a seemingly short amount of time. Especially your people! Sigh....
