Ok, I'm totally overwhelmed by the response I get from all of you. I mean, over 8000 pageviews in three days - are you kidding me?! I received nearly 500 comments in this time.
The thing is, that normally I'm a guy who wants to reply to feedback but the pure mass here makes it impossible for me to do this and that r e a l l y unnerves me. So, I'm using this journal entry here to give a collective feedback. I hope that you understand that.
Now, I'm really happy to get so much feedback to my work, especially to 'Welcome to the Wormworld'. Some of you, who visited my website, already have found out that this piece is related to a story I'm writing. I really care about this story and I currently plan to create an online graphic novel from it. I will keep you updated on this project, rest assured of that.
I started the new website three weeks ago and, to be honest, at first I thought by registering here at Deviantart I could just get some more hits on it and that's all. Well, although that worked out pretty well so far I want to tell you, that I really appreciate the feeling of community here and that I would feel bad if I would not give something back. As I wrote above, it's really hard for me to not be able to give feedback to all of your comments. But when the rush from the Daily Deviation feature ebbs away and the number of comments reaches a normal level, I will be happy to reply to your questions and feedback. Also, I will use my Deviantart page to keep you updated on my projects and my recent artwork.
For a moment I wondered if it might be a good idea to load more of my old artwork into my DA gallery. I decided not to do it. I don't want to dump too much of my old stuff here. I might find one or another darling from my archive and add it to the gallery but overall this page is supposed to be a place with fresh artwork and I really want to concentrate on the future and not so much on the past. However, if you are interested in more of my older artwork - which reaches back to 1998 - I invite you to visit my website where you'll find a retrospective of the last ten years among other exhibitions. Here's the www.daniellieske.com
I've received several print requests over the DA print service. I've had not enough time to check out this service yet but I will as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can purchase prints of some of my paintings on my website.
Ok, that's it for now. I'll be giving a ZBrush Workshop in the next three days and therefore won't be around. please enjoy the artwork and check back for updates in the future. I've made myself comfortable here at Deviantart and I will now check out all the great stuff that's around.
