haha well I have to be honest I sort of feel deflated now after seeing his work! His sentiment and ideas are so close to mine yet so much better I don't feel like I want to do any more, it seems kind of pointless now. Oh well I will see how I feel about it in a day or two.
I see your point, the ideas are really close to each other and he has a very appealing style you see when it comes to games character concept art (which has to have a certain quality if released). However, I don't think the two of you were the firsts, yet alone the only ones to think about it. And I prefer your version: It's funny and creates the right atmosphere of make belief. And it's closer to the style I like.
Heh, small flux compensator drawn onto the Delorean (whatever that is). Also, Doctor Who kid? Heck yeah!
what you say is something I would say to another artist with similar hangups or insecurities and I absolutely agree with you! Art is so subjective and I know that. It's just a shame that artists are so self critical. I am the first to say, 'there will always be someone better than you out there, but there are also artist blah blah blah!' but it's medicine I need to swallow more often...OR I just need to slap myself in the face and shut the eff up
Oh god! Dx I didn't mean to do that! It isn't pointless at all! Its your own exploration and expression of your ideas. If it weren't for me you wouldn't have known about him and your series would still have continued, it doesn't make your work any less valuable, interesting or important. Your tones and way of telling your story are entirely unique.
Oh don't get me wrong, it's not your fault at all! I would have been brought to the attention of the other guys work at some point I'm sure( in fact I am surprised it's taken this long ). I will probably carry on at some point but at the moment I feel like it's not as good a series as I might have initially thought. Don't worry! Your intentions were honourable very complimentary and I really do appreciate it, I'm just a silly old artist feeling insecure AGAIN Ignore me and stay tuned, no doubt my Ezio and Doctor Who kids will pop up in the next day or week or two when I get over the woe is me and my artwork phase...AGAIN
