Well I don't know about other people but I'm going to give you some attention.
Sometimes you must wonder if what you are doing is worthy of the effort. Art, while never actually enjoyed by anyone, can be hypothetically imagined as being pleasurable. Just follow me here, even if you enjoyed the process of creation wouldn't you want to use that time wisely? When you create art you have many options. You can just doodle stream-of-conscious imagery without thinking about it. You can picture an image in your head and try to record it to the best of your ability. You can work strictly to study your craft, which of course does nobody any good but can get you some props from art-forum users. Or you can tell yourself the old proverb (quoted directly), "I'm going to be great. I'm going to go right up to Da Vinci and pull down his pants and cut off his genitals and eat them and while I'm chewing them up and he's crying on the ground surrounded by his disciples I'm going to vomit my inferiority onto his bleeding ruined body and make a gang sign to let him know he's been owned." That is exactly what I think every artist truly aspires to. That is why you must be cerebral, tactful and most importantly tasteful. What do you want to achieve with your art? You want to make something that is an instant classic while pushing the medium itself forward. Not just a comment on art, but on existence itself. The power of imagination, the triumph of human achievement, or a deeply spiritual statement are all possibilities presented to you when you create art. You just have to think. You must plan: meticulously piecing together your masterpiece through weeks, possibly even years of studious, concentrated work! You can work on several of these projects at once, keeping an ongoing sketch and notebook of ideas. Analytically dissecting your work can aid the moment of inspiration to help forge something both visually appealing and meaningful. Not only will this be appreciated by your audience, enhancing your reputation and building a legacy as a bastion of intelligence and creativity, it will also give a deeper meaning to everything you do from that point forward. You will become more than you were before, transcending your apparent limitations to become something greater than a normal man. You have broken free of the enslavement that your genetics condemned you to, proven to yourself that you are one of the "great persons of history". A feeling such as this can not be achieved in any easy way, and that is why it is so special. Your careful planning and study has all been repaid by a single image, one that is so much more than a thousand lesser images put together. You have eaten Leonardo Da Vanciís genitals.
What Iím trying to say is that you have a pretty original style, and I appreciate that you made complete images and not just pin-ups. Having said that I hope I never see anything even remotely like this from you ever again. Greatness must be earned and nothing but severe discipline will help you. Your mind is more powerful than you believe, it only waits to serve you. You just have to tell it what to do.

Err... thanks man, an enjoyable read. I don't think I actually aspire to eating DaVinciís genitals though. :yuk:
