Howdy again folks.
I saw that I had several replies to my introduction thread and was somewhat disheartened to find that my identity had been questioned and that my thread had been locked by an administrator.
I was a little upset as I was then unable to reply to someone asking genuine questions about my project or to even attempt at defending myself.
Obviously I'm not looking to argue and I hope the administrators and moderators of this forum will oblige me by allowing this thread to stay open, both so that I may respond to anyone that wishes to ask me something and also so that I may use it as a place to clarify my identity among other users.
I don't normally do this as I'm not entirely comfortable with leaving footprints online that lead back to my personal life, but I've made the following video in an attempt to clear up any confusion to those who think I am some nebulous person by the name of "Andy".
I don't want to go forward with users thinking my every move are the act of a snake-in-the-grass or someone lying about their intentions, and would like to contribute as a part of the community and not someone constantly on stage for someone elses drama.

If there is anything else I can do (beyond obviously insecure things like showing my passport) to prove my identity as a new user to you all, I'd be happy to do so.
But if this is enough to satiate for now, I'd appreciate it if I could be respected for my actions as a new user going forward vs. people thinking I'm making up for transgressions that I had no part in.
Thank you for your time folks, and here's looking to the future of MFME! :-)
In response to @stevedude2 from my previous thread:
Keep up the good work Benjamoose, this really is quality stuff
How do you do the outlining? Is there a special tool in Photoshop or do you simply trace it by hand and keep redoing each bit until you're happy with it?
I wouldn't mind trying to redraw something one day but I only really use Paint.NET.
I use something called the "Pen Tool" in Photoshop. It allows you to make points and then adjust the curves in-between.
I'll see if I can do a quick clip showing how it works sometime.
There is definitely some trial and error involved when the original image is heavily compressed or low-resolution though!
