You are an inspiration, sir. I hope to be as great as you are! I'm only able to do small wound effects with homemade prosthetics and flat makeups, but it would be fantastic if I could someday create a wonderful sculpted piece. My friends say I should be on Face Off someday... but I doubt it because I don't have the courage to be judged so hard. Looks like a lot of pressure... but it looks like it paid off with you! I really hope to chat or meet you someday in my life. One can only dream of it, though. Amazing work, by the way!
