Strangely reminded of that scene in Aladdin where they enter the mouth of the beast, where all the gold and prized jewelery is stashed.

Besides your obvious technical skills, I find it very captivating. It inspires me to consider the psychology of artists who produce this interesting stuff. Is this what you see when you close your eyes? What inspired you to make this?

It just happens... as I doodle I'll make subconscious decisions to go certain directions with the image. Sometimes I'll be listening to music and I'll feel a certain way or visualize something happening to me.

It is beautiful, inspiring, and altogether understandable ..there at least seems to be something similar/constant in your style and the inspiration for which seems to be unexplained, something boxy, robotic, stiff, and yet at the same time somehow full of curves, contrast, and humanism as well... you don't necessarily have to explain it although i would greatly appreciate it; your style is becoming your own... and with anything individualistic-- quite valuable, stick to it. congrats.

I love the way you paint light in pictures. You do a really good job of making things glow. I think this is my favorite piece so far. ...Of course, I tend to say that each time you paint something new. Haha.

Thanks Sam! The only problem with painting something really really good, is that now I have to try to one up it! I was gonna draw tonight, but I think I'm going to kick back and recharge.

Yeah, true. You always manage to one up your last work though, so I wouldn't be too worried. :)
