Hard to believe I've been a member for 11 years now. DA has changed a lot since I joined, but I think the core has remained- and that's good. I've learned a lot from the other artists on this site and I've discovered entire worlds of art I never would have found otherwise. It's still the site I come to for tutorials and inspiration. Here's to your 14th, deviantART!

Below are some pieces that really inspired me over the years.

Archstyles: Classical Antiquity by Lenika86  Happy harpy by dark-tarou   First Rider's Call: Cover Art by pallanoph  hades and persephone 2 by sandara  Rise by Blackmane  Primavera by SachaKalis  1ae53 by argylekidd  Shi Kitsune Fox Plush Doll 2 by kaijumama  Anima: A kiss in the rain by Wen-M  Auroran Featherdrift by Zhon

I may not post my own art here too much, but the art I have encountered on this site has influenced my everyday left in many ways, from my web design and marketing ideas, my taste in color and framing and most importantly, given me a place to escape into something beautiful every time I visit.

There are tons more artists I watch and who are featured in my Favorites. Thank you to each and every one of you for sharing your talent with the world.
I think I've finally caught up on messages and such, but feel free to give me nudge if I've missed something!
...but if you can't come through on art, then you have no place demanding payment up front.

Been dealing with some bad eggs for far too long. =/
Hi all, dropping through to say that I've been a little slower than usual writing back to things because I've been sick. Apologies for any delays!
Hope you all have a lovely, wintery day. :)
I think auction sniping is in pretty poor taste.
Haven't been this sick in a good, long while.
I think I've caught up on notes and payments and such, but feel free to give me a poke if you are waiting on me for something.
I'm interested in collecting faeries and faerie knight adopts! If you create this type of adoptable or are interested in doing commissions / randoms (keyword style) for me, please let me know. I will be selective, but I will keep an eye out for future reference as well. :) I am especially interested in unusual / dark types of faeries and creatures to populate this little world I've got going in my head...

Edit: S'pose I should mention that I am willing to pay in points or USD.

I've been sucked into the world of adorable adoptables on here, halp.

How old are you now?

DeviantART = Tumblr?

I want Mos Burger.
If I :+fav:'d your piece, but didn't comment, please don't be offended. I see a lot of artists have been adding (sometimes borderline rude) demands or pleas for comments when :+fav:ing. I think this is a bit unfair.

My favorites are generally for me, but the fact that I picked your work to add to my collection means that it was something I found inspiring, helpful, beautiful, funny, or any number of complimentary things. It means I wanted to come back to it, see it again, be reminded of whatever feeling it evoked the first time I saw it. I may swing my again in the future to add in a comment, I may not.

Be happy in either case, as your work was appreciated.

Likewise, I'm happy as a clam any time I receive a :+fav: or comment. It's totally up to you to share your thoughts and if you choose to keep them to yourself, that's fine too.
Sharing the love:
Always the summers are slipping away.
