How do you think I did here? (This post specificly, not the whole thread.)
On that post, fine, and I think you're calming down on some of the others. I was never pro or semi-pro with art, but I used to act, play keyboard, draw, paint, and now mostly focus on 3d imagery. And I once moderated a forum site full of artists, and they would always leap to fray if someone criticized their work.
Worst mistake I ever made was selling all my synthesizers. I should have kept one, as I wish I had something to play on.
