I've already located a nice offer in eBay.uk for ProCreate, right after the holidays I'm ordering to test it. There are quite a lot of projects of mine which could benefit from it :)

Yeah, the jump in Elias' skill this year was really surprising for me. I couldn't be prouder.

To everybody who follows the custom action figure art that we do over at "Customs for the Kid", my son Elias is currently up for "Custom Action Figure Artist of the Year" in Toy News International's 2018 Toy Awards. If you could please take a few moments of your time to show him some support by registering and voting for him, he'd be super thankful. More details available in the link.

Brian, this was one of my most irritating registrations, I tried all my usual passwords and they were all declared "very weak". So let it be known that this is the first time I used my new password "IHateStupidShitLikeThat75". Elias ows me a beer if he wins ;) Good luck, though the other competitors are very good, too.

"I have to say, the competition was fierce, and the battle was intense, but thanks to all of you, I was able to walk away with a different view of myself then I had before the competition. I have been customizing for over eight years now, since I was just a little boy, and this unexpected recognition is a true testament to all the effort I put in to become the artist that I am today. When I first was nominated for the award, I thought to myself how could I possibly win against all these talented artists? Now, having won, I realized I had everything I needed. If it hadn't been for the extremely talented artists who have passed down their knowledge, encouragement, and support over the course of my training, I wouldn't be where I am today. Because I was one of the youngest artists in the community, I always wanted to be just as good as the ones I considered "The Masters". While everybody knows no one's journey is ever complete, I am certainly more confident in my skills now because of all your support. I have read all of your comments across social media boards and forums, and I found them all very moving. Especially, those of you who took the time to vote." - Elias

Both are great and I'd love to do them at some point :) I must check what are the differences between 5 POA Bodhi's jumpsuit and the Scanning crew one.
