Also, I really like your art style!

The phrase on your title page "Art is Work, it Ain't Free!" is so true that it ought to be tattooed on some people's foreheads, backwards, so they can read it in mirrors.


(Interestingly, no one I've dealt with on DA or in commision work has not understood this, not yet, anyway. The outside world of commercial art* on the other hand well...sigh)


*"We'll have you and the other applicants for the job complete a typical assignment for our company,and we'll hire the one we like best. Of course, we'll keep the completed assignments."

Unfortunately I have gotten quite a few "commission" requests that were aghast that I would ask for compensation for work done.

Thanks for the fave

All I can say about your page is WOW! It looks we have many of the likes. I just will keep my eye on you and your works.:love:

Your most kind!
