    I am so glad that my video solved your mystery. Thank you! I got a friend visiting us last week from New York and she has not taken loquats for many years. She loves it so much that she had to take some seeds back with her in hope that she can grow them there.

    I just got back from vacation to South Carolina, and there was a fruit tree outside my room I couldn’t identify. Searched online for awhile, gave up, decided to watch my vids on youtube instead….and here’s my mystery tree! Thanks for the wonderful video, and for solving my mystery.

    Thank you! Actually, the first one was overdone after where was cut off, so I had to do the second one. Knowing when to stop is very important. Videotaping your drawing process may help you to analyze the problem.

    Nice man, I always think in the wip this is going to look like nothing nice, but in the end it always turns out beautiful. Oh and I also got the problem of overdoing it when I draw.
