Thanks for all the fish! :-)

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 2, 2012, 5:53 AM
My dear watchers and watcherettes (and, Emperor protect me, there's lots of you!),

I just wanted to stop real quick to thank you for all the Happy Birthday messages and congratulations as well as the encouragement and positive feedback you gave me on my last Journal ( aerion-the-faithful.deviantart… ).

Even though it wasn't meant to sound sad or as a cry for attention, you all showed me a lot of support and gave me some much needed honesty and perspective on how dA really works sometimes as well as what you like/don't like to see from my pencil. I think the true heart of dA lies within the community that's grown here, which (despite the ponies and bewbz!), has managed to survive and nurture artists through the years with great vigour. And I'm happy to have the best fans/watchers/followers around to keep doing that for me on a daily basis!

I will continue, as my latest deviation will attest, depicting the Warhammer 40,000 mythos, but I'll intersect it with more of my own creations to keep the balance in the Gallery. Another angle consists of finding other thing to illustrate within that realm, other than Imperial Forces. So there will be some forthcoming races I think you'll be thrilled to see.

Back to the drawing board now!

With a title like that, I thought you were saying "So long"! Just keep doing what you love and I'm sure you'll find a market for it.

I like your style generally. But I really like how you bring the 40k universe to life. Basically all the other pics I see are either so grimdark they taste like dirt or ridiculous sisters of battle/female space marine strip tease. Or MangaTau. Or they just aren't that good.

Of the ones that can draw [link] is good value for a comic style. But I think your work is better technically. And is much more evocative. There is a depth to each pic which you don't see very much in 40k art.

Perfectly understandable if you are a bit sick of most flavours of power armour by now though :P

Keep up the good work. I'll keep dropping in to see what you've been up to as you're at the top of my DA bookmarks.

Ditto to MaKo85's comment about LOTR. Except how about Ecthelion vs Gothmog at Gondolin.

WOHOO! Bring on the fantasy and dragons! :dance: (actually I would LOVE to see you draw the ever popular Gandalf vs. Balrog standoff...or hell ANYTHING LOTR)

Also give Ben a hug from Auntie Tina :3 :heart:

I think there's a fine line,

I still hear shouts of "sculpt it like this so it matches GW lizardmen" but when you differentiate yourself from that you make something your own, it's no longer the dreaded GW style that groups you with other people but draws attention to you as an artist.

Remember, you're free to post pics of the Skrapyard universe if you want to break up the 40k stuff. I'd love to attract some of your fans to check out the game.

Also, I'm now tempted to commission you to do MLP fanart just to see if it would make your head explode...

We'll be watching eagerly for any update Nic, but a Warhammer one is always especially cool from you. Good to hear you had some good feedback from the site. And happy birthday again. :D
