What never ceases to fascinate me is how often I find how small the world truly is from an artistic standpoint at least. What I originally perceive to be fanart of something turns out instead to be actually concept work for something I'm well familiar with, such as the respectful game to which this piece belongs. The people who work on games and movies and things like that seem so distant to me, as most often I only receive the finished work (aka the dvd or the game), but then I happen to stumble across things like this. It may only be small and fleeting, but there's a certain ounce of true magic that happens during moments like that
Now whenever I go back to whichever respected mediums, I can say 'I know somebody now who was involved in making this'. Truly remarkable.
