I'd really like to thank all of you for your continuing support over the years. The wonderful artist community I've found here on DA has inspired and motivated me to push my art skills farther than I ever imagined. I especially want to thank the people that I became friends with over the years, and those who took time out of their busy schedules to critique my artwork and help me improve. I know I haven't been very active the last few years, but I hope that I can change that in the future if I'm given the chance. You just never know what the world has in store for you! Just know that we're all in this together. There's nothing more important in this world than the people we know - our friends and family. Please make sure to never forget that.
For all those artists out there who question themselves, just know that your imagination is a gift and you have a skill that most people don't - the ability to bring your ideas to life. It may be frustrating sometimes when the art isn't going as planned, but everything you create has value and worth. You put a piece of yourself into everything you make, and there is an energy in your work that is uniquely yours even if you don't see it. Please don't ever lose your creative spark! You can create and do anything if you apply yourself to it!
