I would enjoy having premium membership which is why I set up this donation pool. If you enjoy my art and would like to support it I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you! :heart:

I am enjoying doing some holiday art trades with friends and all the art cards I am currently posting are part of it.  I was inspired to give these art cards a try years ago thanks to amazing artists like aimo, lubyelfears, and Chenria whose art cards (as well as their art) always inspire me to do more and get better with my own work.  I don't think I would still be around drawing and writing if it weren't for yuhime who took a chance on a beginning artist and honored me with an art trade a long while back.  She is still so far out of my league, but it was such a wonderful feeling to have someone agree to do that with me.  From that kind gesture a friendship blossomed and silly ideas, crazy art shenanigans and even a collab fanfic writing ensued.  She is the Cassandra to my Varric and I will always credit her for keeping me encouraged and pointing me to helpful resources and practices to help me be the artist I am today.

With Thanksgiving preparations being checked off, I was thinking of all I was appreciative for this year and wanted to say that I am thankful for all the amazing and inspiring artists here who will never know I exist who inspire me to push myself harder and to do better.  Sincerely thank you for showing us what can be done with loads of hard work and belief in ourselves, it keeps me going to hope I can come close to that.  I am thankful to all the watchers and viewers here who comment, fave, or enjoy what I do-ya'll have no idea how important that is to artists.  After spending hours on something it is nice to see someone else appreciates all your efforts.  I am thankful for the groups I am a part of because the admins and members are all awesome.  The communities here are wonderful that I've had the pleasure of being a part of.  Lastly, I especially want to thank my friends yuhime, CelticWolfwalker, ReelLifeJaneway2, and AdMacART for always being there for me on skype.  You have helped me stay sane and I truly love you all for that!

There are so many other friends I would love to point out, though I know I will accidentally leave someone out, but you all have my heartfelt thanks for your continued friendship and for all the smiles and happiness you bring.  Thank you for being amazing and for being here for me even when I seem absent.  You truly are fantastic and I promise it doesn't go unnoticed. :heart:  I hope everyone who reads this an amazing week and weekend no matter where you are.  I hope it is filled with many happy moments no matter how you spend it.  Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating and may you all be safe!

You are so welcome!  I love your style and your pencil drawings are diving! :heart:

:D I always think I should use more colour but I really like plain old pencil

I don't know why, but pencil drawings are really beautiful to me.  It is the lack of color that draws my eye to notice more things, like the expressive lines or small details that I would miss otherwise.  :love:
