Exquisite! I have a personal relationship with Gargoyles. They followed me and poked fun at me all through Paris. Tricksters. Kept me from taking myself too seriously.

This is a really fine work, misterpaint! Helps to deliver the story so very well indeed!

Oh, forgot to mention:

CONGRATULATIONS on your professional work!!!!!!!!!!! May you become rich and famous.

misterpaint,
WOW and WOW!!!
Absolutely amazing art work. This painting is riveting, spell binding,
emotional and fearful but at the same time sad. I want to somehow
save his man who's despair has driven him to his knees. The talisman
that he wears around his neck has magical powers ... if only he would
recite the incantation that will free him from the clutches of all harm.
Striking, emotional, captivating and so well painted! :)

Thoroughly outstanding. This seems one of your strongest pieces of work I've seen. It's a knock-out, top drawer power image. Beautifully painted. I love it. :)

thx to all my friends http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa184/Faith5782/Rabbit%20emoticons/illustrations_tuzki001.gif
I hope soon to show you the real book, my pleasure is all yours. You have always supported and pushed me to improve, you are the best friends I could dream of.

Thanks, also by all those who came into this forum without knowing how to draw, including myself.

In October 2007 I started to draw for the first time. I remember perfectly the difficulties I had in the proportions and anatomy ...
in August 2008 after many experiments with photoshop, I discovered ArtRage and this forum ... and a world of passions invades my mind.

This is my first post in the forum .. My first experiment... sometimes watch it with emotion and respect.

Today I try to learn with that light in my eyes that lights the soul ... and you know what I'm talking about.

Thanks again to all my dear friends

La tua crescita artistica, perlomeno quella vista qui in Artrage, caro Stefano, è stata tanto veloce, quanto impressionante. Ora puoi ben annoverarti tra i migliori illustratori grafici e artisti professionisti.
Mi congratulo vivamente con te e spero che tu riesca a fare di questo tuo talento e opportunità una ottimo lavoro (o almeno secondo lavoro), proprio come avrei probabilmente dovuto cercare di fare anch'io.
I miei migliori auguri benedizioni perché tu abbia tutto il successo che, in tutta evidenza, meriti.
