Where did i state i look down upon him? i dont know the guy, I've only made any comments relating to his work, i dont mind people criticising my artwork when i post it, and other people shouldnt either, the same applies to his hummor. All i've been trying to do throughout this thread is dispell the myth that he is some sort of god. What scares me is that you're all defending his work, if i had a bunch of groupies going around saying "omgz dont crit davidskiwans artwork! it r teh uber 1337" I'd be more pissed at them than the people with something interesting to say. Plus, i dont think ive met many (if any) people on teh intarweb who arent guilty of what ive typed in the quote codeman, when the only impression you can give people is your words, you have to be consice, clever and to the point, and if you're any good at english, its pretty easy to do, and even harder to resist when people are attacking your viewpoint.
