demiJecht Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I kinda hate to ask this cause I bet you've been asked before but what are some of the common physical features for astrals? Like the masks are the meant to be random or are they meant to be something that resembles something from its owner, etc.
If you ever respond to this I will be happy and most likely die.

the reason i'm asking btw is cause i want to draw a astral for myself without it being a clone of alex's so yeah.

So you're the artist who made that awesome short story about the girl who thought she was from Pluto in the Flight Anthology!  Just stopping by to say I really liked it and keep up the great work!

Доброго времени суток! Наконец-то я Вас нашла!
Хочу поблагодарить за чудесные работы - ДРАМАкон и Ночную Школу!
Мы очень Вас любим в далёкой Сибири и ждём продолжения Ночной Школы, а также новых чудесных работ!!!
P.S. Было очень неожиданно и приятно узнать из одного Вашего интервью, что свой творческий путь Вы начали с ElfQuest! Как здорово, что про этот комикс ещё помнят)))
