I just wanted to share a few thoughts this morning.

First off, thank you to all the people who leave comments weather they are positive or not. Maybe I speak for many artists maybe not but for me when I see a comment on one of my pieces, or on my profile, it makes me feel very good inside, appreciated, that people are actually taking the time to spread a positive vibe !

There are many comments that I have not responded to, and to the people who dont get a response to there comments or maybe wonder if the person really cares what he or she said, Listen, it does matter and everyone of your comments makes a difference. I apologize that I can not respond to them all, just know that it means allot to me, and for those who have become my fans, Thank you. 

Your excitement helps fuel mine, and when I am down or working on something difficult, it is always encouraging to just read some of the comments that people leave. Everything matters and you may think that leaving a comment may not have a big impact, but I tell you it does. It helps share love, creativity, positivity. When you give to another, it causes a wave, creates energy, it creates excitement and if you let it, it becomes contagious !

Because of you guys, my fans and fellow artists, know this, you guys help me out more then you know, so keep going and understand that your not just another peep on deviant art leaving comments, not sure if people even care if you do or not.

I do !

everything matters !

set your goals, dont let anyone fill your head with there point of view of your life, know what you want and go and get it ! have faith and know that everything you do matters, so become the greatest person you can become ! its going to be ok, you can do it !

Peace to you all

I love your art :) I just added the C. Greenwood books to my amazon wishlist because of your art ^_^ It is my dream to one day create good enough art to make cover art for fantasy books as you do :) So if you have any suggestions I'm all ears ^_^

Oh really ? that is fantastic, thank you very much ! There is a million different ways to become good or successful and something. My tid bit of advice is to first work within yourself. Because anything that you do, that you want to become good at will require allot of pain and frustration and when that happens you will say to your self, I am not good enough, it will never happen. If you say that it will happen so first before all things, work on your inner self and see your self in the future were you want to be and dont let anything or anyone say its not possible.

then pick up your pencil and start working. there is no secret to becoming skilled at something other then faith that it is possible to achieve your goal. Skills come with practice and practice brings pain and hard work. if you are willing to go through it, then you will become phenomenal !
