Words of Thanks

I wish I could personally thank every single one of you who has shown me and my art support, it's not always possible to reply personally to each comment I get. I do read every single one!
So I must give a heartfelt thank you here and let you know how much I appreciate all of your kind words and support over the years.
I hope continuing sharing with you little pieces of my soul through my art is thanks enough :hug:

FAQ

Where did you learn to draw?
I'm completely self taught! My high school art teacher told me cartoons were not art, so I didn't peruse any formal education in art. My drive came from within, to draw something into existence has always been intoxicating for me.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Drawing is the way I can best express myself. My art is like a visual diary, documenting feelings, thoughts and events. I find my inspirations all over, most often in everyday life, or the need get crap out of my head onto paper.
Please don't let me darker work fool you. I'm naturally a cheerful person; who has struggled with tough times. During the hard times I use drawing as an escape, a way to vent and put my story on paper, to be constructive with the destructive thoughts. It's been a life saver.

Do you do commissions?
Never, sorry. If someone is controlling my pen with their money I find it stifling. Staying independent is really important to me. I need to tell my own stories, an I know you guys appreciate seeing original work :)

Do you do requests?
No, sorry. See above. Minus money. This includes drawing you XD

What tools do you use?
PhotoShop CS6 and SAI, and a Wacom intuos3 drawing tablet, or my snazzy new Cintiq Companion. I recommend looking at Wacoms 'Bamboo' range if you're just starting out :)

Do you read your comments?
Every. Single. One. The support and feedback you give me is beautiful and often overwhelming I'm truly sorry I cannot reply to everyone (If I did I would never get any drawing done XD) but I read them all, and so many of you have touched me more deeply then you'll ever know :heart:

Can I use your art for something personal/non profit?
Please do! I love it when people use my art for wallpapers/backgrounds/tattoos/scrapbooks
I also love to see my work shared, as long as credit is provided :heart:

Can I use your art for my commercial product?
No. You may not use my art for your financial gain.

Can I do a school assignment about you?
What an honour ^-^ Please feel free to, though I'm sorry I can't personally answer questions, I have covered a lot in my full FAQ: fav.me/d5x4z8h

Can I create something inspired by you?
Wow, yes! I adore seeing works I helped inspire :heart: Please do. Stuff like this makes my day :)

Where can I buy prints?
You can order signed prints which I produce and sign personally form my store: destinyblue.storenvy.com/

I have more questions!
That's not actually a question ;)
But if you would like to know anything more please check out my long full FAQ here: fav.me/d5x4z8h

Thank you! :heart:

Draw This In Your Style! by DestinyBlue
Almost 2000 redraws of my fish hair girl (!!) 💙💙 I feel like I've collaborated with so many of you! It was so hard to chose who to feature let alone winners! 100 easily deserved to be up here!


I know there'll be some disappointed people, so please keep in mind my choices are imperfect, there certainly some more technically proficient pieces which didn't make it, I had to go with my heart, and I wanted some variety too.

See the top 10 print winners on my instagram 


But I'm also awarding 2 extra DeviantArt print winners: Goldfish by PrivateCoppery and The Colour of Water by BirdyBlubecause they are both fantastic!

Thank you to each and every one of you who redrew - I was so happy to see you breath life into my girl ^_^


This is not the end though! You are welcome to post your redraws forever! I'll keep her up in my gallery so you can come and be inspired whenever you need it.

Thank you for the Draw This In Your Style challenge! I've wanted to focus on creating art this summer and this challenge launched me into that. I usually say "This time I'll do it" but then I don't. Time flies by and I regret not doing things when I say I'll do them. If I had made art every time I told myself I would then I would've been a much better artist by now. I feel like this challenge helped me break this habit.

Thanks for being a talented, inspirational artist and a kind, intelligent person. You deserve every bit of praise you receive. I'm glad you exist. Hug

I don't know if it's intentional, Blue, but in most of your drawings, it makes me feel like warmth comes from within. And it may be as obvious as "Inner Glow" and as subtle as "Procrastination" and "Draw this your Style". I love this message: warmth comes from within! <3 Is it intentional? It's awesome! An awesome message in all your art!
