    Oh man I understand this artist so much aha, once you've got that vision in your head, you've just got to find a way to get it on paper. Amazing determination though, it's easy to give up during the first half of a project once you're starting to see it come together but it's still got so much work to do haha.... And to do it without hands, like, wow!
