Its true, I have the art of Top Cow book and this is the cover picture, and Marc Silvestri's lines and Steve Firchow's coloring, and when I looked at this, I was like, "Um wait. Isn't Firshow's coloring", because you did the body and face so similar, and I like the witchblade better than Firchow's. I like the hair but I do prefer Steve's. However, it truly rivals the picture.
No need to be honored, your fantastic, and don't give up, no matter what people tell you. Because the people that bring you down, don't matter, and the people that bring you up don't mind what you do. Sometimes, you make a picture, and its not your best, cause everyone gets that, I know I do, quite frequently, lol, but when I look at your gallery, you excel at every piece you do, and when I saw your work for the first time on DeviantArt, I fell in love with your work. Please follow your passion and you will be rewarded. I can guarantee it.
