Writing a gripe in a forum intended for gripes sure is an eye opener.  In general, I'm not especially impressed with the social skills, reasoning skills or empathy of Generations Y and Z.  However, some of the more intelligent feedback was useful.  Among this:

-However it may have appeared once, this site has always been about money over artists
-DeviantART is not something that you want on your business card (whoops)
-This shit happens, so do what needs to be done

So, uh...  This is it.  This site is no longer useful or important to me, and it's time to move on.  I'll keep an eye out for contact information requests for a while, and I'll leave links as I figure out where I'm going and what the hell I'm doing.  Thanks for the interest and support over these years, folks.  Keep doing the cool things that you do.  Over and out.

Thank you to everyone dropping by this page!

I like working on commission pieces when the opportunity presents itself, and monkeying around with art jewelery when it doesn't. I have a love of metal, and am fascinated with the possibilities presented by the staggering assortment of metals and alloys in our modern world. I admit that I'm a bit of a materials snob when it comes to my work, and it pains me to use plastics, most glass and most base metals, excluding copper.

In addition to being an artisan jeweler, I am also an aspiring cutler with an interest in practical yet beautiful knives. I'm just starting to get my forge techniques down, and hope to learn forge welding in days to come so that I can produce my own pattern welded billets.

I'd like to extend my thanks to all my watchers and those who :+fav: my work; I don't always have the energy to thank you individually, and I try not to over-clutter shout boxes with repeated thanks. I do make sure I have a look at your galleries in return for your moral support, though.

Maybe I've overlooked it somewhere, but I don't see where I can find your Morrowind replacer patches.  Do you have a link for that?  I don't think I've seen anything so beautifully detailed before.

I don't think what I understand you correctly, sorry about that. Did you mean plugins for Morrowind? I uploaded what I created - new models and icons, textures what you saw on my models you can find by google search "darknut's mw armor textures", If you didn't want use it - game will be use original textures. Plugins for English version does not ready, sorry, I want to create it soon when I get English version of Morrowind. "iron" and Both Indoril Armor versions, all what I've recreated in 3dsmax for this moment

Yes, that is what I meant.  I will look for the textures that you uploaded, and I hope that I will see your English plugins some day.  Thank you.
