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.

Thank you kindly.  There is no such things as talent... I have been painting for years and still learning.  Nobody was born able to.  It is all thru learning and dedication.  Everyone can do what I do if they practice.  :-)
