First of all thanks you all so much! now here i am with answering personally what i skipped because i was too tired yesterday
Reinaldo: yep its been a hell of a rushjob since that comission stole me 3 of my 4 final days i wanted to put into this work. glad you still like the speedpaintfinish
told you on msn its the greates thing of all to meet great friends like you in here. congrats again on your final too! and bout ranking - no offense at all, if there’s countries where really noone cares about cg and no art is asked that is more concrete than a wallpaperpattern - no gameindustry, ahahahaha come and visit us ^^ top 10? high on that list ^^
cocoKnight: lol, yeah its kind of a candylight work, but i didnt want to create it in a purely almost monochromatic palette - its a rich book so i thought püainting a poster of it should bring in a much as possible of the impressions i had. agree the death’s grontguy left was a bit funny but since i had to rush extremely, i let a few parts as they were in nanner to fix as much as possible of what i was even less satisfied with.
prabath: thanks a lot mate. hope the colorpalette is more ballanced than the typical 80ies kitschful pieces. i’d be upset if it was cryingly overcolored
tony: ahahhaha sorry didnt have a pic of you but hint: next comission i have to apint is enchanted forrest - magic egypt. send me a pic of you and your home or i’ll make you simply the gnome as dewish - smoking a big fat shisha in it
MVDB: thanks a lot old friend
Musi: i am sooo happy you like my final run’s result. well i said it before i will make a clean up pass to bring it to the end it deserves in the next days so i have a nice portfoliopiece at least and all the work i put in apear in the best possible way and not best possible for the circumstances. thank you so much and i am happy you liked it! hehe, if you got an extratime, i cant wait to see a musi short!
Icedeyes: hehe thanks mate. yup the guy is a bit funny. since the show’s over, he’ll be fixed in the afterparty somewhen in the next days
Blackhand: THANK YOU mate. its been a great time and i wish i would have had way more time to look around and help, i find it only normal to tell someone what i think while looking at his work and more than all it would be the least you could do for your friends, right? so thanks a lot too old friend and hope to see many many more of your great works soon
Tolga: congrats again on your bombastic epic piece and your continuos encouragements and reviews. thank you so much for all your help on msn
Onkmer: ahahaha, yeah i went over my own progress back and forth, and at the end, i just said no matter what it takes, no matter how little sleep i get, i’ll bring it over the line cuz its been way too much work to being done for nada. yeah i tried to finish most of the important details as good as possible in the 1 day left to fix the biggest issues.congrats on your supertight final run too, we must have been side by side fighting the last seconds of the timer ^^ hahaha still dances with onkmer
Zephyri: tonsa thanks my light. what would i do without you. oh my, i am happy i finished it and brought it back home. promissed you. no matter what it takes and with a few sacrifices, been there, done that. wooohoooo! hugs
NinJaA55N: thank you so much old friend. you always been a huge help and not only a kick ass artist but also a longtime really great friend over these happy cgtalk years. thanks for all that!
Art: ahahaa yeah of cousre you were right but the big mess under the logo was even worse than the sketchy logo itself. saved it for a last minute decision and since the blue repeated and connected the lower and upper part fields, i decieded to keep the crappy logo. you created one of my favourite pieces too and its always a huge pleasure to watch your progress, you are one kick ass hell of a painter and of course it wasnt surprising at all you came up with a stack of eyecandy! hau rein ^^
