Long time no see! It's wonderful to see you're still drawing as well as ever. I love the work on the cigar and the drink, and especially the smoke curl wisping up there.

Also reading the previous comments - I hope you'll be able to do away with those problems hindering you, if you haven't already. Looking forward to more artwork from you, sir; I'd been wondering about what happened to you for a while, so it's good to have you back!

Hi there!
How are you?

Indeed, indeed! It's been a long time.
I am also very happy to talk to you again. Your gallery is just terrific! Killing stuff. Your progress lately has been amazing.

Don't worry about me.
No big trouble. Just some common problems. A very expensive trip I did in America is still haunting me, also my graduation is annoying me... stuff like that.

Although I should post here more often.
The problem is that I only have studies and unfinished pieces.
I don't think I should post unfinished stuff here. I think deviantart is more for finished artwork.
I'll try to finish one weekly. I have tons to go.

But I am glad to be back again. I'll try to keep up to you guys, posting more regularly.
See ya!!!!!! =D

Well hello!! It feels like it's been an eternity since we really talked. I'm doing okay at the moment, you know how it can be (lol, thank you for asking though). I can't wait to see more work from you and to hear about your adventures while your were over here! ha, 3,000 miles and 4 states! I can see that happening VERY quickly! I haven't been doing much of anything really... heh my headaches have gotten to be quite a bit more of a pain in the neck and back of the head. :iconrimshotplz:( ha ha I know that's a bad joke... sorry... :blush: )

Well I better get to going hope we can talk on MSN soon!

I don't like to paint Still life myself, but I really appreciate people who can. And the reason I like this one so much is because it tells a story, it makes you wonder what happened, what's the story behind this. I always favor narrative over expression in a painting.

I'm doing great~ had some new opportunity open up for me, which I can't say until it's solid. But yeah, it's exciting.

LA Noire is absolutely a rare jewel in game, even for Rockstar, which always thrive to break boundaries. It's a slow game, but very touching, get you totally involved, because of the facial mo-cap technique, characters really start to have distinctive personalities. While before you have characters be happy or sad or angry, now they're arrogant, suspicious, agitated, defensive, scared, worried, hiding something... all that you can actually see from their face and body language. And the story is just amazing, I was crying and screaming at the end. So good. it has the emotional impact of a true Noire style crime movie, with a lot of twist and turns. I hope you get to play it.

How about you? anything exciting happened with you?

Hi there!!!!
How are you?
Yeah, another person talking about this game. I hope they release for PC soon.
I love this kind of game. It looks like mafia 2, but better.

Thanks for the compliment as well. I must say I liked too. Rare thing.
Cheers! =D

Hey, great to see another post from you. It's been a while I think.

Very cool still life painting subject. The vibrancy of colour in the drink really draws the eye and compliments everything around it, especially the cool white fedora. Have you been been playing LA Noire by any chance?

Hi there! Yeah! Its been a long time, indeed. I was very busy with annoying problems.
But I'll try to post more often from now on.
How are you my friend?

Thanks for the compliment. I am very glad to know you liked.
This one is supposed to be the cover of a biographic book about a famous Brazilian Jazz composer, called Tom Jobim. Bossa Nova is the name of this Jazz Genre in Brazil. It is some kind of smooth/cool ambient Jazz, more like Chet Baker or "Kind of Blues" album from Miles Davis.

No, I haven't seen LA Noire yet, which is a shame. I just browsed some pages about the game and it looks terrific! Amazing visual.
Unfortunately, I don't have PS3 yet, only the 2. I am investing too much money on a high end PC rig, so this is draining all my funds for other gaming platforms. I hope they'll release this game for PC, or I'll have to wait. It happened the same with red dead redemption.

Hope those problems get sorted out. I'm not doing bad myself, and I'm actually somewhere in the same boat as you when it comes to investing funds mainly on the computer. I seem to spend the most on peripherals, though (a gameboard, external harddisk, usb hub). I hope so too that Rockstar will at least port one of those games on the PC, but LA Noire is probably the most interesting at the moment.

Yeah, no big trouble.
Now I have a very good PC. Its is a lot more comfortable, specially while using Photoshop or Corel Painter. Good peripherals are VERY expensive.

I also bought a ATI HD 6970 for gaming. I am now a fanatical for ultra high graphics and 60+ FPS, always! Extreme gamers are insanely demanding. hehe
