I have won numerous awards for the same. Nitro's work is elegant and well executed. His graphics have a richness to them equal to some of the great artists of the past. His composition and use of color is one of the best I've ever seen and I was very proud to have voted him artist of the month." Thanks Rita!

Congrats, man! I've been viewing your artwork ever since I had the great fortune of seeing a link to your site on Ryan Bliss' User Gallery, and I am continually impressed! Keep up the fantastic work! I can't wait to see this project that you refer to doing when you get everything working properly. Again, my most sincere congratulations to you!!
Your eye for color, texture, light, and composition gives your images such a wonderful old-world Rembrandt quality. It is truly amazing that you have had no formal art training, for your CG imagery surpasses those that hold degrees in this field. Congratulations, and I look forward to viewing new postings to your gallery.
Feri is an inspiration to all of us who are self-taught. We see how much can be done.....and how there is always more to learn. I treasure the
Old World style of soft lighting and textures.....and apprecite the honest advice. God bless you my friend, Scott
Feri, You are my #1 favorite artist on the www, period. Your beautiful, ethereal scenes are an emotional experience. It's great to learn a little about your life and philosophy. It's obvious you put your heart and soul into each one you do. My favorite is "Will it Rain Today", simple yet a blow to the solar plexis. I hope you'll create many, many more of your stunning images. Now don't let all this go to your head...okay? Linda
Damn... 'tis good to see someone of such consummate talent recognized. Your work was among the first that I can recall seeing on Digital Blasphemy, and was a huge part of the persuasion that led me into CG art in the first place. Take a Bow, sir... you've more than earned it. /P
One of the great tests of art (visual, audio, written) is to measure how long you can look at it, how long can you listen to it and how often can you read it. I have enjoyed Country Morning as my wallpaper for several days now and I continue to be intrigued by the subtle colors and shadows. Wonderful. Thank you for sharing your art. Randy
Feri you really deserve this! We've talked before, we met at the site where hubert rules (say my hi to hubert & his hubism :). I have seen all your works that you've posted on this site and other 2 sites. I am continuosly amazed by your way of employing lights, shadows and textures. You are a Guru. And I am really glad to know the fact that your day job isnt related to cgi and you dont have any background in art. It means I have a hope too. Well of course it'll take sometime for me to get close to your skill, but hopefully not long. Yeah I got a 3d modelling software now :). So goodluck on upgrading. I really hope to see what's next. Respect. Dave. Btw cool glasses you got, are they the secret in all of your great renders ?).
