Thanks for the fave, dear! :D

Hey, thanks a bunch for the watch! It's very kind of you, and I appreciate it. Have a great day!

It's no problem. Julian was telling me about you earlier and I was intrigued by both your critiques and artwork. I find your approach to art very interesting. It's both methodical and expressive. Though I have a similar approach, I haven't encountered many artists who share an appreciation for calculated expression. It was actually something I was self-conscious about for a long time because I didn't feel like a true artist. Sometimes, I still don't but it doesn't bother me as much seeing as studio art isn't my main mode for expression.

Anywho... I'm curious as to why all your artworks incorporate numbers in the titles. Would you mind telling me? I understand if its too personal in nature.

Unlike most, I don't value emotion much in an artwork in and of itself. It's not my preferred approach, only because it's rather subjective. I like to focus on objective aspects of artwork for myself because I think that in order to create a certain emotional impact when needed, a certain understanding of theory has to be grasped. I've been criticized a lot in my experience for being a technical artist; I have accepted failing grades in art classes because of my approach. I just think that, whatever the philosophical side of aestheticism people air, a respect for those on the other end of the spectrum should be maintained. For instance, I am utterly fascinated by Julian's work because it has a degree of emotion that my work has never had. Even though that's not my personal way of expressing my art, I still respect and applaud it greatly. :)

And oh, no, the numbers are fine. My files on my computers are always being copied and moved, so the meta data used for organizing the original files (date created, et cetera) are often lost. I like viewing my work in chronological order, so I date the files in YYMMDD format, so that when arranged "alphabetically" by the computer, they are in order.

I can agree. I think I hold a higher regard for pure expression than you do, but I will qualify it's insanely hard for me to appreciate an artist of any medium (studio art, music, film, performance studies) if they disregard classical training and theory. I mean, it can only enhance an artist's work and approach to music imo.

I'm kind of curious to know what your doodles would look like since you're so immersed in technicalities.

And, of course. I don't know why I didn't see that. The year in the beginning tripped me up. Though, it shouldn't have. Kind of ashamed of my so-called deductive reasoning skills atm.

Lol, I watched a couple vids. Very mindblowing stuff. Though, when I listen to prog jazz I like more guitar-based music. Piano is one of my least favorite instruments. It's an awesome accessory but I hardly ever like it to provide the driving instrumentation. Thanks for the recommendation.

thanks for the watch =]

No problem. Your newest Supes deviation is impressive--when I saw it, I knew I had to check out your page. I love your method and style. Your lineart is so crisp, like legit works from Shane Davis and your actual style is an awesome mesh of various animation styles. I'm not really into commissioning artists because I can normally just be satisfied with a replica sketch done by me, personally, but I was getting some ideas when I saw your X-Men art as well as your Black Quinn amalgamation.

Im really glad I can help inspire you! =]
