    I hate you!
    You have an amazing girl (although I do have a girlfriend too now), you can draw like a god (I'm talking Odin level here) you can play guitar pretty much like a god and you has an Axe-Fx.
    Thus,
    I hate you!

    John,

    Have you considered doing that for a living in the future? I mean, it's great as it is... if you're just a hobbyist, it means you could improve your skills a whole lot moar! :yesway:

    Why didn't you draw the bo-

    But in all seriousness, you have a shitload of talent. Most people can't shade to save their lives.

    I did, and it helped a lot! I hope you got my rep! :cheers:

    I didn't re-scan the picture, but she did take a picture of it when she got it to her apartment:

    I don't know if you can really tell from the picture, but in any case, it did help and I was surprised it made such a difference :) Cheers again, mate! :yesway:

    I've thought about studying graphic design of some sort, but I always end up wanting to take a 3-year sound engineering and recording program. It would be nice to be able to fall back on a day-job doing layouts and whatnot but at the same time, betting everything on the music card might also be the best motivation to get me somewhere with the music instead. And working with music, regardless of whether it's as a musician or songwriter or recording engineer or teacher, is what I strive for :yesway:

    Yeah, she was really happy! She said it was the most thoughtful gift she'd ever got from a guy, which was nice to hear :)

    Thanks, guys! :cheers:

    Got a bit bored just now and decided to add some colour to it... I've tried this before but never got the results I wanted, now I tried a new method and it finally worked :)
