yer the only professional that ever replies to your questions/comments anyway dood - so I think people will understand... specially after your poll...

y'know.... if you could just 'glance' at my deviant-page and tell me to 'quit pretending to be an artist and get a life' - or a 'keep crackin yer not that bad' it would really mean a lot man.... total respect you as an artist - you rock DN!!!! =)

Haha I put be an asshole because it was funny ... but I've been in the same position a few times and try to answer them all .. sometimes it takes a really long time and I'm sure people are like huh ? Who's this douhe respond 3 months later after I commented ...

But yeah maybe the other suggestion where you say thanks and that you've read them all and appreciate them but you're going to whipe the slate clean and try to keep up in the less busy times of the year.

Right after you've responded to my awesome comments of course !!!

hahaha

Good luck bud.

i said start here, I would say the asshole one, because thats not really being an ass. But you seem like the type to really wanna communicate with your fans, commenters, critiquers, and appreciators.

It's more than understandable why you can't get back to each and every comment left behind. You have a life and career going on, if there's people that cannot grasp that then you know who your true fans are. ;)

Feel free to skip this one by the way.

Good for you! It's admiral to see someone with such a busy schedule still eager to keep in touch with fans. Do the best that you can, and just continue to make wonderful art in the process.:)

Greatly appreciate the reply back by the way. You didn't have to, but it was a nice gesture and I take it to heart. :aww:

10k+ deviations, 7k+ messages here, so I'm no one to give advice
but basically, reply to the comments that are worth replying to if that makes sense- questions, really thought out comments
I'm sure people just saying "nice picture!" don't expect much of a reply
and if you want you could do a journal explaining your build-up of messages and thank them all at once.

You are one of the friendliest professional on DA and i know we all appreciate it, but understandably convention season can really wreck your schedule as you're traveling and still working deadlines. I'm just happy to see art from you dude!
