Scratch that, I took a stroll through your gallery again, and ready your bio. A LOT of work goes into what you do, passion is clearly woven amongst your pillars of expression. My piano playing doesn't even begin to bring it justice. Mucking around on the piano is just not anywhere near what you do. 

Laughably I was considering paying you to keep your art in my video, however, now I see it would just be ridiculous! 

Perhaps one day my piano playing will be as expressive as you are with your medium in art. If that day ever comes I won't just improvise to an art work of yours or any others that captivate me, that would do any justice whatsoever. No, I would write a piece, each note carried with thought with intent on replicating the beauty of your arts visage. With permission of coarse. Despite the fact that day is well beyond the horizon for me. :p

Your fractal art is captivating and moving, could I perhaps use some of your art work as backgrounds for my piano music videos? I would give you credit.

As an excerpt from my profile:

"Many people ask to use my artwork for album covers or various purposes. Unfortunately, as most of my artwork will likely be printed and sold in the future, I will not give permission for my artwork to be used for any purposes without proper compensation; "giving credit/popularity/linking to my page" is not acceptable compensation!"

Additionally, I request for the two images of mine that you already are using in your videos to be removed (58, which does not even credit me, and 55, which does).  If your music is specifically based on those images, which is why you are using them, then note me and we might be able to get something worked out. 

This is nothing against the music you have created, which I did listen to; I love piano and used to play it myself! Most of my artwork is generally created for personal reasons, and unless I specifically create it for another purpose, then I will not generally allow it to be used elsewhere without apt compensation.

First and foremost I apologize for not even giving you credit for No.58, and to post your artwork before even gaining conformation, it was childlike and rude. 
Secondly your art inspires me, I look upon your gallery and see my music reflected within many of your pieces art. However, I do understand your protectiveness, and while I believe art should be shared it is your right to obstruct. This does not bother me except only the fact that the image for No.55 practically inspired the piece. Music indicative of the influence of the ocean has always beckoned me, your art extracted that passion from me. It would be painful for me to remove it from that piece as I see it as synergistically fuzed with it's very nature. Might I ask you to let me keep that one? I have already blurred and whited out No.58, and am hesitant on No.55, albeit at your command I will rid it from the video. 

Empathy is in my gaze, for my music is fairly private. The music I share is in its entirety just a diary really. Recordings log my musical progress and document my ideas for future reiteration and influence. So, I see why some one perforating your artwork and slapping it into their own might be..disheartening? 

I would ask you if I could send you a piece of music and you create art to coincide with it, and vice versa. It's just that it seems like that might be too much to ask. If you are game though, and it isn't cumbersome for you to do then that would be great. 

Again I apologize, and please let me know your thoughts on No.55.

This makes me feel horrible for going on google images and just stealing art, I should really find people to ask for permission.

In the grand scheme of the Internet, it is very hard to enforce copyright, especially when some websites make it a pain to take down artwork even after filing a DMCA.

On Youtube, it's hard to tell if a channel is monetized or not.  While I honestly do not mind people sharing my artwork, I do mind people making money on videos that includes my artwork, using it for eye-candy or to attract popularity, using it to promote something, or other reasons without obtaining permission. I also dislike people putting words in my own mouth about what my artwork represents, which has occurred in the past. If it were linked in a description without the image being shown in the video, I'd be perfectly fine with it.  If the image is used as a background to the music, then that is something I would need to give my consent for.   I find that I need to be consistent with enforcing ownership of my artwork so that so that people don't consider it "stock" or "background" material that is free to use.

Exactly, your point is correct -- seeing someone taking my artwork and slapping it on a video is disheartening, as there is no 'good faith' effort to even contact or notify me beforehand.  This is what personally irks me -- if people enjoy my artwork and find it inspirational or cool, I would love to know well ahead of time and possibly work something out in positive terms rather than discovering it being used in a less-than-ideal situation.

Music is something that greatly inspires artwork that I create.  Note this text on my profile: "I am much more inclined to make something for a particular purpose than allow an existing work to be used for one."  That would be applicable in this situation -- the music would have to resonate with my mind in some sense emotionally should I make artwork inspired by it; but I wouldn't have opposition for doing so for a piece of music, provided that you are not monetizing your videos or are willing to work out something for that to occur.

Note me here on DA regarding 55; I would prefer to move that discussion into private conversation rather than public discussion.

"Float like an electromagnetically polarized butterfly, sting like a caffeinated hornet [the hands can't hit what the eyes can't see]" 

most ppl don't knwo that,that's how the rest of the Muhammed Ali quote goes although I think " Now you see me, now you don't. George [Foreman] thinks he will, but I know he won't." might be the more complete version.

I don't think there'd be too much of a difference, though I do agree it would be interesting to see.  I'd prefer for people to be inspired to create things based on what they see from this rather than imitating this exactly, however.

Partially so that I could study the techniques used in the paint to create some of the effects in here. And I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were the artist till just now; This wasn't a criticism, it was a personal wish. Also, partially, because of the spatial awareness that a physical production of this piece would imply would be both staggering, and inspiring. And I guess because Deviantart always ignores its incredible traditional artists.

Unfortunately, I wish I could do digital painting / character drawing, but I don't have the time to learn or attempt Yet Another Thing at full force currently xD  I probably could do abstract, traditional painting, but that's not something I want to pursue at the moment, nor have space or motivation to pursue.  Art is a hobby for me, not something I think I'll ever be living off of.

It's not that I think DA ignores traditional artists; rather that they're obscured for various reasons.  I have some mildly strong opinions why, but that discussion doesn't belong here.  It unfortunately takes a lot for artists to get noticed, inclusive of serious luck :/

Yeah, like I said, I wasn't criticizing you. I thought I was just idly discussing with a random person who'd seen your work, not the artist themselves.

I'm not at all sure what this is, or what it's supposed to represent, but the patterns are really cool; looking at it with your title it reminds me of some kind of a particularly wacky coffee.

Cop-out answer:  It's abstract so what it is supposed to represent can be up to you as the viewer. Chaos is an element of mine that I love including in my artwork.

More serious answer:  I generally stream-of-consciousness create titles for my artwork, so what I name them generally is what I consider it to represent. In a barebones sense I feel that it exudes energy and  hyperactive frenzy that one would experience as a hornet buzzing about on caffeine.  "Coffee" was included in the tags because coffee has caffeine :D
