The picture of myself is me with straight hair (it is normally so curly that my head is covered with raven ringlets.) I am a 22 year old male Texan who spends most of his time at work, doing school work, or spending time with his lovely wife. I believe that inspiration is infectious. Once one is inspired one is compelled to inspire. My presence on the web is for just that; to inspire as many as I can. I draw because if I didn’t I would go quite insane. The inspiration can’t be held back. It can’t be contained. Some let their inspiration out though song, though physical activities, through many other mediums. I release my inspiration through my drawings. I can only hope that they may also inspire. Also I’m occasionally tortured by images in my head that will not leave me alone! They drive me crazy as they refuse to allow me peace, so I must release them to paper so they will bother me no more. But generally they are rare.  I am now a member of the Comment Exchange. Members of the Comment Exchange promise to comment on the galleries of those that comment on their own. so if you comment on any of my pictures, stories, or main page, I promise to reciprocate in kind… that is if you leave a comment stating, ‘cool pic’ you will earn one of equal value on your gallery, if however, you give an awesome crit then you will earn an awesome crit in return. And no I don’t return comment for comment, the more you comment the more I am likely to comment more on your stuff, but the numbers of comments I give out is completely up to me. Still, I will return the favor in kind.One other thing, if i get mods choice ever/again i will try to return the favor of your comments but it may take me quite some time. Comment Exchange Comment Exchange Members To join Comment Exchange, simply become a registered user at: I take all comments and crits into consideration, even if I don’t respond. And although I may not immediately react and edit a piece, I will take your crit into consideration when next I draw something that includes such a thing. I also take suggestions, though I may not do every single thing you tell me too, I will take it into consideration, if you can truly inspire me then I will be more than happy to do my rendition of your concept. Well I just thought I’d add that in. I've been relatively uninspired for a few months. My muse is asleep, and now I'm sort of in a rut. I crave inspiration!I've got my own gallery up and I am selling prints, T-shirts and other products People keep saying they wish they had my tallent. This is in response to that wish. I have very little tallent. Great art is realy only 10% tallent. The other two qualities are much more important. Great art is 30% passion, one must love what they do and feel strongly about it. Lastly and most importantly, great art requires obsession, 60% obssession. the inability to stop creating. If you think you lack tallent don't worry about it much. Passion and Obsession are MUCH more important than talent will ever be.:: Last Updated Khaldun dragonfly ButterDragon 06/24/2004 :: Previous Update 3 new images PowerFae (revisited) FrogFae Got Blood?
