4,000,000

  • Eating: japanese candies
  • Drinking: Arnold Palmer
Today marks the day that my page has hit 4,000,000 views. I remember back in the day when I'd be excited over 400 views. It took a long time to get here, to gather a fantastic and supportive following. A lot of waiting, a lot of hoping that people enjoyed my work and so on.

It was always very daunting to go out and show my work to the world. Will people enjoy it? What if my concepts are stupid? What if this idea is too far fetched? Those are the types of questions that plagued my mind every day, and more-so when I began to brainstorm on LMS.

But I can't believe how genuinely outgoing the people of Deviantart, and all the other supporting websites have been towards my art. I always, always, tell people that Deviantart and it's community is not only the reason I'm where I am now, but the reason why LMS is what it is and hopefully, what it could become.

So without getting too mushy, let's all come to my place and have a huge group orgy!

Thanks again guys, and my treat to you:

Something about the internet that must be known to all artists. There is no such thing as to far fetched or to silly, there is quite the opposite in fact. If anyone doesnt give good advice or simply says mean things its because there not very good at it themselves.

With that being said, its always good to hear of a success story and im happy to see it happen before my eyes.

All I can say Dan, is that no very very few deserve all this success as much as you do. I know you've had quite a go round with LMS and I just wanted to tell you that I'm really glad it is finally all working out. Can't wait to get my copy.

Group orgy? Where do I sign up?

P.S. Congrats on the 4M :D

Congrsts dude, you deserve it! Ad I really don't think there's much you could do that we wouldn't be impressed with. I don't mean this in a really soppy 13-year-old-girl-screaming-omg-hearts-you-much kind of way, but media is getting to the point now where you can do almost anything, beyond any stretch of the imagination and still be cool. I really don't think you have anything to worry about with the content of your stuff, it's still going to blow peoples minds, and you will remain, as always, a huge inspiration to myself and millions of others :D

Congrats on the mega-milestone, man! You havvvvvvvvve the pooooowwwweerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! *insert Castle Greyskull here*

Seriously, you've accomplished amazing things here and I'm proud to say that I've been following your work since long before LMS. And with that in mind, I'd like to make a suggestion (since I know you actually read all these comments ;) ) : You, very seriously, have more influence than a DD. Use that to help other up-and-coming artists get some attention -- I mean the artists who have amazing talent but have a disgustingly small number of pageviews.

Basically, I'm suggesting you do a monthly (or as able) feature journal. I'm sure you could make a world of difference to a lot of people. As a starting suggestion, check this out... I already suggested it as a DD, but comic pages really don't get as much payback from those as other forms. [link]

Anyway, I know you're busy as hell keeping things rolling with your own stuff, but a quick ten-minute journal with a couple of links and you could send hundreds of people their way. Maybe thousands. Either way, keep on rockin'. ;)

I've known some artists on dA to flaunt their pageviews and/or somehow accumulate them without having much of an eye for art. But you, sir, deserve every single one and the right to brag about it. Heck, just get it over with and call yourself a god... oh wait...

Anyway, you've worked so hard to get to this point, AND you've been extremely appreciative, helpful, inspiring, and HUMBLE to your watchers. So congratulations and keep being awesome!
