Everyone seems to write a little something for this type of kiriban and it seems appropriate so here we go:
Firstly, I for one second never forget that all that I have is from God and if He wants He can take it away in a second though I hope He doesn't. That's my belief and I'm entitled to it and to say it and i thank Him for allowing me whatever success I have achieve however small or big. I also ask for forgiveness for all the wrong in it, and to be rewarded for any good in it.
Second, all the comments that you guys give me, mostly good and some bad, have helped me to grow as an artist. I am thuroughly convinced I still have a lot to learn and lot more potential as an artist. As much as possible i read all the comments you leave and if you all of a sudden get a response to your comment a few weeks down the line, well that's the proof that I do. Again, thank you for all your fandom and i wish you all the best in your quest for art if you are on that journey as well.
Third, I want to appologise to anyone that I have offended. The internet is a not a good forum in many ways to convey thoughts in that its limited insofar as it's ability to communicate intonation, and other nuances. Also, to all the female fans of mine, please don't take my approach or visualization of the female form as derogatory, in many cases I have to advertize my art and projects I work on to help pay bills. I have over the years taken off many of the art pieces that I now find offensive, and hopefully in comparison to everything else out there, you will find my art is not crass or lewd. I can't please everyone, nor am I perfect, but I thought it was an effort worth mention.
Fourth, to all those kind folks who want me to work on their projects for free or otherwise, please do note that i am not open for any work in the near future (like year or two). I am very humbled by the fact you want me to work on your projects however i am very picky what I work on and income is a very important thing as I have 4 mouths to feed and home to maintain. I wish you well on your projects, and I will make very plan and visable when I am able to accept jobs or commissions.
Fifth, You might notice that barring a few of the recent commissions i have done for NYCC in two days from this posting, that i haven't been posting as much. That is because I have work and i have a family that deserves my time and love. I am not in a position in my life anymore to feed my addiction night and day, nonetheless, I do try to make sure what you see is above average quality which you can evaluate.
Finally, I have some pretty large changes looming on the horizon which demand a lot of thought and introspection. For this reason you will also find that my blogTV posts are severely curtailed as well. No one said anything to me to make me mad, the tr0lls didn't win, but I need time to think. And with that i want to also add that all of my hardcore fans have and most likely will not ever leave me and I appreciate them and their friendship. To all may fans from casual to obsessive, I thank you!
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
