I really really love the color scheme and how you blended her skin, the outfit is pretty cool and the dog is just awesome, it looks very original and what can i say about the details of the mini city, i've allways been a huge fan of your work and as allways you impressed me!!!!
I think her feet are a bit odd, and she looks like she's falling ( i mean her pose) , everything looks a little crowded and its hard to separate the main character of the background, every element so to speak. but anyway, i'd say its a 95% awesome and 5% critique XD :D

No, that was directed to YOU. Very adorable that you came back after almost 7 months to reply though. You don't start off a complement with bigotry. "I DON'T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE, BUT I LIKE YOUR ART" ...the fact that you found that perfectly fine to say was like walking into a nice elegant restaurant(this particular painting) and seeing that someone took a giant dump in the bubbling aquarium....(the comments are the aquarium & YOU are the dump).

The fact that you tried to turn it around to make it look like some political statement versus exactly what it is; racism, is probably the saddest part. Not ONLY that, but you joined DA just to look at art and post bullshit like this. You don't even upload any art. Whats the point in you being here? You could've just as easily done us ALL a favor and NOT signed up, NOT said anything as far as "what type of people you hate" and just admired everyone's art from a far. But the fact that you had the arrogance to "MAKE IT KNOWN" that you are a racist, then back peddle from the lame point you were trying to make(i don't like black people... but i like this art.. no wait, africans they walk around barefoot in the desert looking for food & don't contribute to society like white people, but wait.. i don't like inner-city blacks i like eccentrics) and the fact that you contradicted yourself 4 times within the same conversation and them attempted to wrap it up in a nice little bow claiming you WEREN'T racist and how you only hate that particular PERSON... without realizing you were saying all of that speaks VOLUMES about your OBVIOUSLY bipolar issues and overall mental health.

Bottom line and last bit of advice; Seek help & stop spreading hate disguised as well-wishes. You might've been "smart" enough to confuse that other guy but I see right through you.

Well ok,

There isn't much to argue with in your reply. The contradictions you said I made, I do not see. It's possible that it's just a misunderstanding.

I don't see why it's embarrassing or wrong for me to say that I don't like African Americans, rather African American culture.

When I said I wasn't a racist, it was in a paragraph that was very hard to believe otherwise. Truth be told, I just really don't like the Black American culture, so of course it goes with out saying that an eccentric wouldn't bother me as they wouldn't be a representative of their culture. This isn't political, I hate everything black, except for those who are just themselves and not affiliated with the culture. Oh and point to where such an arrogant person such as myself "bow(ed)". I do not bow, I'm superior, lol.

Again, you're having delusions of grandeur in thinking that a "race" isn't in itself a part of "culture" and thinking that you saying you HATE it and the people therein isn't a racist idea or claim just helps solidify what im trying to explain to you. Try and keep up, sugarpants. By saying that you hate "African American" culture(as if the people arent a part of the "culture") but then saying "I like people to be themselves" is a misnomer, but from reading your reply I imagine you haven't the slightest clue of what any of that means. Just in your second block of text alone you're contradicting yourself.

"I hate everything black, except for those who are just themselves and not affiliated with the culture." I can sit here and dissect that quote until it SORT OF makes sense... but then I'd be doing you a favor, someone who says they don't like black people unless THEY act how YOU THINK they should act, and sees absolutely nothing wrong with having said/thought that.

Its almost like after you write something the memory of you doing so runs screaming from your jagged diseased empty porous wreck of a skull thus rendering you completely ignorant to the foolishness you just typed. Lucky you. Lots of people would pay good money to have that gift/defect. Heh, you pretty much proved JUST how "superior" you actually are('nt) by how utterly, embarrassingly unsuccessful you were at trying to paint yourself as NOT being a racist... after so brazenly professing it... for the 4th/5th time now. el oh el hurhur

I'm not racist, I don't think whites are better than blacks, I think that we are different. You guys like to go shoeless in the African desert while looking for food, whites tend to industrialize and make scientific advancements. We are different and because of that I don't think our races can get along with out getting in each others way.

Just think of your poor members in the inner cities, wouldn't they feel happier if police didn't mess with them while they were rioting or taking what is theirs. Wouldn't they be happier if they had a nice field to jump around in while throwing their spears?
