There is a difference between opinion, and a valid critique. You've confused the two and assumed I'm making a personal observation about this piece when I'm offering a valid professional critique to the artist based on my experience and knowledge as a professional in this industry.
On the other hand, you decided to voice your personal opinion to me for absolutely no other reason other than you're a fan (hey you said it, not me). You used a piece of work by another artist which has a completely different setting (and therefore different lighting rules) to try to validate your personal opinion (NOT a critique).
It would probably be a good idea if you refrained from interfering with a professional critique when you are unable to offer a proper critique of your own. And again, critiques an artist receives are not up to you. And they have ZILCH to do with your personal opinions.
In no way am i attacking you or insinuating your artist talent are wrong, i find your art work to be great, but i work in an industry that despite what experts say people will like, they often do not agree with experts, And for the record i did go to Art institute of Boston in 1985 on a scholarship i just never completed it. and the only thing i really got out of it was this "art is the individual opinion, no 2 people will ever see the same picture the same way."
so you voice your professional opinion i voice my opinion as a fan.
and as i didnt see Rey ask for critique which is an available option when uploading a picture. to me or any other person that see's what you wrote would be looked as an opinion. and as Rey politely responded he thank you for the comment not the critique. I see you have commented on several of his art works before. I choose to disagree with your professional critique with my personal opinion. Hopefully we can leave it at that.
