Thanks dude, you're totally right, it'd make studies all the more interesting too.
Been getting back into drawing, here's a WIP, sketched it on paper just as i was going to meet a friend about doing an animation... which's going well. A couple people from Weta are interested in helping us out which's fantastic.
I've been looking at creaturebox.com a lot recently... I love Dave's and Greg's work, and have just started to give a whack at his style. (if you go there now, and look on the main page, you'll see the orange robot pic that i was lookin' at while drawing this)
