So I opened up my deviantART browser this afternoon and did a double take. . .2,009 messages! I then discovered that Norke
, an awesome deviant artist and fellow digital painter, had featured me in his journal and garnered me a Daily Deviation (at least I think that's how it works, right?)!
Wow! A huge thanks to Norke! I also need to thank CainKinris
, who originally spotted my work and brought it to Norke's attention. You rock, CainKinris!
I'm truly honored by all the attention, emails and notes I've been receiving from everyone. I'm just very happy you all like the work I'm doing. It's truly gratifying as an artist to give others images that they enjoy looking at time and again. (I hope my work will stand up to repeat viewings.)
I've always tried to be an active member and respond to questions and comments when they come in. I'm in the middle of a few deadlines at the moment and just won't be able to dedicate the hours of time that it will take to respond to all of my comments. I'm going to get there eventually. However, if I don't reply to your comment right away, please don't get out of sorts with me. I'm going to make every effort to get to everyone in the order they came in. I'm definitely reading everything you send and appreciate all the kind words.
I'll keep posting more work as I get it done and it clears NDA. I'm just excited at this awesome turn of events. I think I need to go sit down now. Thanks again everybody!
