Well this was a pleasant find! I used to watch you religiously on Youtube back in college. Clicked a recent piece of yours just now and your name jumped out at me (though you could argue the art did first). I owe you a lot of credit for many of the fundamental digital painting techniques I still use, and if I ever falter through a piece, it's because I've gone too long without watching you paint! This bit might sound weird, but you also have a very soothing voice to listen to. :D (Big Grin)  Your videos were calming and enlightening.
