    Congrats MindCandyMan!

    You sir are a true inspiration. Now that you have gallery representation, a beautiful portfolio, and a professional studio it only makes sense for you to graduate fully from the student of ca to one of it's top pros. You give a lot of people hope and show the way as you keep pushing your skills. You have come a long way quickly. I look forward to seeing where you go in the future.

    The gallery is yours for your use. There is an editor tool on www.conceptart.org in the toolbar (main page) which will allow you to add and subtract the images and info. Feel free to do as you see fit.

    Much congrats...truly.


    Jason

    Oh...and for those of you who haven't seen how he made it where he is now, take a look here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=870

    Start at the beginning and meander through it. It will open your eyes...especially if you too are a beginner.

    Congratulations MindCandyMan! You really deserve this and you've been an inspiration since I came here less than a year ago. I hope to learn as much as you have while I'm here.

    Congrats man!!

    You are an inspiration to many people here, myself included. I remember discovering CA around the time you first started that thread and it was a great motivation for me.

    I had lurked on the forum for awhile and was amazed at all of the great artwork. Then I saw your thread, the daily dedicated effort and improvement, along with all the great comments of encouragement.. Your effort convinced me that with enough dedication and effort, you could learn how to make great art.. in fact everyone must invest this effort.

    You show us all what's possible! Thanks!

    Like me. When I visited CA forum for the first time few years ago, I saw few threads including yours and it really encouraged me to start sketchbook and draw daily. Thanks for inspiration.

    He is truly well-deserving, his story is one of the most inspirational! There were time when I wanted to give up on art, but seeing his thread encouraged me not that it really is possible to start from not the best art to become a great artist!

    Whenever I get pissed at my art/lack of progression I always think "mindcandyman went from beginner to pro in 5 years. do what he did and you'll be fine."

    Thank you candy man for all the buckets of inspiration

    Camping out in your thread was one the first things I did after finding out about this place. I think I followed a google link there just to see what the journey of an absolute rookie might look like. Needless to say it was pretty damn impressive and I've been hanging around CA ever since.

    Congradulations and thanks again for setting such a positive example for the rest of us.
    Look forward to seeing what comes next

    My god. Your sketchbook is insanely inspirational. I hope I can improve that much in such a small amount of time... I think I'll draw now.

    You should be the mascot for all art forums, to show people who are interested in art that hard work and dedication DO work. Congrats man, we haven't really talked but you deserve this.

    That news just made me feel like the world is a better place! It's brilliant to see somebody rewarded for so much hard work and sweat, and it couldn't happen to a nicer man. Congratulations, John!
