can't say i know the name.
i just er, painted what i saw and wasn't really trying to do something like someone else.
sometimes every is perfect and i get it done in about half an hour (like i did for the third one up there) and sometimes it never seems to be right and takes me two weeks (like the last two).

hmm... always tempted to get my hands dirty again but too much of my time seems to be taken up by CAD work.

i didn't mean to say you tried to look like someone else. sometimes, i will draw something and it comes out looking like another artist's style. and i did not even mean to do it.

i was complimenting you highly. egon's work is awesome. yet your work does not really look like his. you have your own look, definitely. your work harkens to shiele. perhaps someone else would not make this connection.

oh no.... i'm not offended or anything.
hmm, i'm not really one for compliments; maybe because i know where the flaws are.

as for me, i take compliments when given, even if the drawing is f#$cked up. why not.
