First of all, thank you for presenting us with your art! It's divine!My name is Ady, I'm Brazilian, by chance I met your jobs and I really loved all of them. Especially, the spirit of fire and my Zodiac sign Capricorn. I've been looking for a beautiful design that represented my sign, would you mind if I use it?

This is just flat-out amazing! Your style is unique, composition is great, technique and color. It reminds me of old-time scratchboard with the crayon colors.

Thanks Dru

Its funny that you just mentioned the scratch boards, as I recently concluded an exercise on making scratch boards with my students . . .

Oh my god, I LOVE THIS SO MUCH, I love the arms, the details, pfft, it's just completely stunning!

Sorry if this is a bothering question at all, but I'm trying to make up my own version of the Capricorn... may I use a foreleg design a bit like yours? I just love it so much, of course, I'd credit you for it too.

You may appropriate the limb structure :)

Funny thing about this work was I used this as a sample to my students of using the proper knowledge of animal and human anatomy in creating believable creatures

Yeah, I do that a lot too, so I have a lot of biology books which have comparisions. :D

Thanks so much too!

I really like this design..... There is so much detail in the picture! I'm kinda speechless! I am a Capricorn. I have been looking for a good design for a Tattoo for myself & since I am not artistic I decided to look on Deviant Art. I am looking for Something Original & I really really like the amount of detail. I was just wondering if it would be ok with you to possibly use your design?

Thanks Robert

I am flattered that you like my work and consider it for a tattoo.

I did think about my works as tattoos, but I usually discourage people since the works are on a black background and will not translate too well in the opposite.

Why not I design you one based on the actual body part you want to place it on?

Thanks,

This was the first of the series, where I wanted to create a creature that seemed more believable than just a goat with a fish tail.

Greeting Ida

My thanks for the 'fave' and the kind words.

May I ask what is your astrological sign? I'll be uploading the rest of the works by the end of the week.

Well centaurs have recently been symbols of wisdom. In the past, they meant strength or lust.

Which one would you choose? :)
