mikebart may not be here to make fans, but I'm happy to say I am one. I think his work is of a very high quality and inspiring to a lot of us. whether he uses well established techniques or if he is helping develop new ways of using the existing tools, its still very cool
lets all try to stay calm here and be thankful there are still interesting and informative posts made in this community.
I know I've been somewhat short tempered in the past but I would like to think I've mellowed over time, and I personally don't have the time or energy to waste on typing anything negative. that's not a dig at anyone here, I would just like to see us all getting on and enjoying the technical and artistic discussions we have on this forum.
