I should be working right now, but once in a while I get an itching feeling I need to vent some of my feelings and who better to than my friends and fans.
I think its is beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am best known for my involvement in Street Fighter work and the like. Most of what I have built my popularity on is Capcom related, and it was a calculated effort. Much of my fame, however small it is, is from that series.
Now, thats one thing, but another thing i have started to notice and feel is that my work is becoming too cheese cakey, and too suggestive. I know there are plenty of other things out there more racy and crazy than mine, but I have to start wondering at a certain point why it is you actually like my work and who actually likes my work.
Talking to my favourite art instructor about art and the conception thereof, i came across some ideas and input I hadn't heard before. In most case people just cheer me along in my career and enjoy in my success as well, but he was a bit more critical in a good way. In essence, he basically said that I should consider doing actual real art, like fine art as opposed to always the same thing here. This got me to thinking as to what do I want to be known for, but also spurns the question what am i known for.
In my mind, i feel i have vastly exploited the female form to make a living, and i worry that that makes me a hypocrite to what I believe is right, and has typecast-ed me. I have to put food on the table, but I am working to get to a place where i can be more selective of my work and try to evolve as an artist.
SO here I present to you a question, with an affixed poll for you to vote.
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
