Recieved the 'Art of Howls moving castle' in the post today and it is really stunning. I've only seen the film recently, but it immediateley climed to my top 5 films. I really admire Miyazaki and his staff, the characters especially, unlike many animes the characters seem more real in Ghibli films, in thier attitude and appearence. The background art is also beautiful, i attempted to try one, but i failed, maybe i'll try again at one point.

Hiya, Nirvan! Thank you so much for stopping by; the gallery, and myself, are honured to have a visit from such a talented artist.

I had a look through the gallery; some outstanding work in there, man. Your talent for digital painting is seriously well developed; you're at a level that i don't think i'll ever reach.

Plus, you like Street Fighter IV! What's it like to be artistically skilled and have fine taste in videogames?

Thank you so much for your very nice comments. Although being my own worst critic i don't think i'm outstanding. I'm always trying to imrpove my digital painting, and am about to go into Uni to do Animation, so i need to improve alot of things. (Sure you weren't browsing my favourites page haha)

Yes, big fan of SFIV! Play a bit of everyone, but prefer Abel, Cammy, Balrog and M.Bison. What about you?

a) You're welcome! I think you have a lot of talent for digital painting, and you've clearly put a lot of time and effort into working with the techniques you use. I don't know whether you've heard of it, but there's a UK magazine called Imagine FX, which is a very useful resource for people like yourself interested in digital painting; there's also an accompanying forum, which i think would be very receptive to someone with your skill.

As for studying animation at uni, i think the industry could really do with someone like yourself. You clearly have fine taste in animation (i read your journal entry talking about Howl's Moving Castle), which combined with your talent for static art, may possibly be a very interesting combination. Do you have an 'ideal company' that you'd like to work with (e.g. Pixar)?

b) Me too! I'm a huge fan of fighting games (i'm a staff member of a DA fighting games group called Digital Dojo), and Street Fighter IV in particular. I'm fairly familiar with the whole cast myself, but the main characters i play are Sagat, Balrog, and Blanka.

Thank you again, really. I am trying hard these days to get better and try all different styles. Recently i havn't done any full illustrations but have been speedpaitning various character and vehicle designs.

Yes PIXAR would be great, but i live in London at the moment, so i'd probably start with smaller company maybe doing conceptual designs or storyboarding. In the future i'd like to freelance with my own company working with friends in the industry. It allows for freedom and lets your travel more. Are you a proffesional artist of sort?
