Add to that some really nice emails/comments that have totally, completely validated and encouraged me and I'm a happy Ellen.
I really must also note, having drug through another few dozen submissions this morning, that I'm honestly not trying to make myself as the end-all, know-all in fantasy art - I'm trying to be helpful and useful with my suggestions and reasons, not conceited. Heaven knows that many of the flaws I identify in pieces I reject - and accept - are flaws I struggle with too. It's MUCH easier to see these flaws when you haven't been eyeball to eyeball with your subject, and I am deliberately trying to look from a critical customer view. Don't read more into it than that, pretty please.
Also, I need a secretary. >.<
Hey, someone want to make me a few EMG/PA/EMG-Zine icons? *flutters eyelashes*
