This is my first critique so bear with me. I want to say upfront that I think what you do is indispensable in the DA community. I have (and I assume others as well) have used your stuff pretty frequently, and often it has greatly improved whatever I was working on. The main concern I have with this one, and many like it, is that there is so much saturation and contrast that there are very few applications it can have other than a background, or as an unaltered texture for items. Heh, maybe my real complaint is that they are all so beautiful that I feel pangs of guilt altering them to suit my purposes. One thing I would like to see in the future from your work is more subtlety in the texture. Think more of transitions, and balance of color maybe. Maybe specify if you are making a texture to stand on its own as a piece or one that is specifically created to be used and abused.

This piece in particular would be an awesome starting point for a painting. There is so many strong strokes in there and contrasty goodness, that like staring at clouds images just pop out at you and inspire you to compose. I think maybe calling these textures are misleading. Some of the ones you create are indeed suited for texturing and various added-to applications, but maybe for works like this, we need a new term. I think they maybe more suited as inspirations. This is just my opinion on your stuff, I have often went to use one of your textures and just found the texture over powering my work. Maybe that is a commentary on my work more than yours, but this has been my experience.

In anycase, I love your stuff, you can completely ignore what I have said and I will continue to do so. But I figure maybe something from left field may kick start a different direction for you, much in the way your textures do for everyone else.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
10 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

in your work expresses what is best in the world of texture
I'm your fan and love every step you take
this work is a mix of shades of colors
which gives me the impression that even the common sense you create deviant art simple
your art is life and gives meaning to the end of your personality and shows the allied force technique which is very dificl to be done today
creating something involves feelings of the artist but requires technique and you have it all in this work as well as your entire gallery
I feel privileged to be able to have one your help and have a minimal notion of your enormous talent
unfortunately people do not understand what art is because they are so dumb they only observe with strangeness

but when someone feels and sees the creative work and the technique used so that person can have the slightest notion of art

I know exactly what you feel is as if you lived in a world where everyone is blind but you have vision it hurts but at the same time gives peace because as in your art and the only other people who have the real look of life can understand what is the pleasure and power of creating art that you did everything and then some reached its perfection in simplicity because it is what is the secret of creation
