I joined 13 years ago when I was still a teen and the internet was a much less densely populated landscape. I made good friends and interacted with a lot of kind strangers through DA. The validation I got for my drawings and paintings helped me stay excited and inspired, and I am grateful I had that opportunity. To those who were with me for the ride, thank you for sharing your encouragement and enjoyment of my art. I wish you and newcomers I haven't met all the best. You can email me if you need to get in touch: eyestrain89 at gmail.com.
Take care of yourselves and be creative when you can.
Cheers,
rt

It's been over 5 years since I last logged into this account and the first thing I read was your comment: I miss you and hope you're creating lots, wherever you are. I want to thank you from my heart and tell you how much your words and encouragement meant to me all those years ago--when I was still creating for just the sake of it. Your 2013 Artist Statement was profoundly personal and also very, very much spoke to where I am as a writer and an artist now. Thanks for being a friend when I needed it, and an inspiration to me today. Wherever you are I hope you are doing well, and creating what you want, because you want to. Much love, T <3

-touches your face-
I've been in Japan and the forest and my room, mostly. :lol:
I miss drawing together and learning from you. You taught me so much in such a short amount of time back then. I'm stoked you are still improving your art!

Your art is so amazing, I just have to watch you ><

May I ask you something?
I'm looking for contestants. It's an OC Contest about humans and fatasy, but its no must to draw the humans.

If you got the motivation and time, would you like to participate?
I don't mind if you say no. Many people already declined, and I understand if its not possible...

The Deadline is November 29th

Hey! Thanks for making yourself known. I realized after you walked off I should have asked your name, or at least your DA handle. :lol:

Amazing gallery, you use colour so beautifully! I should practise on that area more, too. : )

So kind of you to say so, but I think your use of color is already much stronger than my own... haha

No really, I think you understand colour far better than me... : ) (I wonder how long will we argue about this!)

I'll fight you!

... okay, not really. But thank you for the compliment. I have sooooo much left to learn. But color is fun, too. I finally understand the appeal of abstract artwork, because sometimes a subject just distracts from the real hero of the piece :)
