omg link watch out creepy dark link is going to take over. Dark link was always my fav villain since it represented link other personality. He has a conflict with himself through the game.

YES. This was probably my favorite part in the entire OoT game. So awesome to be fighting someone who knows your every move and will use them, and probably better than you will. :XD: Love Dark Link.

Damn...that must have taken hours to paint! I'm not nearly that good and I can put a week into a painting if I'm set on it turning out just the right way.

Paint is slower than CG, but it's sort of relaxing once you get into it, isn't it? I need to do it more often...

I agree, it’s by far my favorite medium to work with. I was about to go and make my first art for this account with it.

Paint can be a tedious thing to work with but if you like it enough then you can just sit back and enjoy it for hours without caring for food or water, or maybe I'm just crazy, but whatever. XD

I'm the same when drawing, regardless of medium, I can lose myself as easily in CG work as real paint. But yes, sometimes it's nice to actually get your hands down and dirty. ^_^

Dear Artist,

I would like to apologize to you for not being able to keep up with the art that has been piling up inside my messages. While i cannot make a well thought out comment about your work, i would like you to know that i have viewed it, and will continue to look at everything you submit to DA that arrives in my message box, for i would feel too guilty to delete any of the images without atleast looking at them first. Being without a subscription this is harder, so i will go through the art one by one in my box, and post this message.

Please forgive me for not being able to be more personal in my thoughts. I look forward to more of your art every day and again apologize for falling behind on my DA list. When i can finally knock out the 2,000 deviations in my box, i will return to regular, personal messages about the artwork im looking at.

Good luck to you and thank you for continuing to make DA a unique and special place by submitting your art for people like me to enjoy and be inspired by.

Respectfully,
-thejackbull

P.S. I apologize if this note reaches you several times. I am several months behind on the submissions.

Wow, this is beatiful (in a dark sort of way ^.^;; ) You really put yourself into this just to turn around and sale it. It's hard to do sometimes.

I know the whole mney bit. I would help ya out if I could. I am also saving up, but to go over seas. I wish you the best of luck though. I wish I could be a fly on the rocks to watch. That field of study has always had my attention.

have you ever thought of painting on masonite? you might like the surface and you can pick it up in any store that has a wood department or a lumber yard ^^

Nope, never tried that.. Canvasboard is just so cheap and easy to get a hold of, I haven't really experimented a lot with other surfaces.Not that I paint very often. ^_^
Maybe I'll give it a try. :)
