So, after a few more notes from some mentor friends of mine that I think really helped it out and I feel I'm finally ready to call this done and move on. If practice make perfect, I need to get on with more practice and stop wallowing in old projects. I have some stuff in the works that I'm pretty excited to get started on and ultimately be able to share with y'all!
Until then, I leave you with "Devil".
Also, I just updated my reel with this and some better selections of my past work:
