it's a pity that you make magazine illustrations, with all the shiny happy people that tell nothing to me, when you have such talent for fantasy painting... makes me think you're wasting your skill. but well, maybe i'm not one to comment on that...
I concider myself fortunate to be able to make my living on art. I am, however, not an artist but an illustrator, and as such I cannot choose the temes of my illustrations.
The fantasy painting will have to remain a hobby for the time being.
Fantasy IS more fun though!
