Rob Swackhamer re-visited the very first photoshoot he did with Allybelle as Azura from Fire Emblem: Fates. And he discusses what he had learned in that time since then.

When you don't want to do what everyone else is doing you're going to need to work hard to get somewhere. But you could potentially end up gaining so much more than you initially realized.
