oh gosh thank you so much for the support and feedback! ; u ; it's really an honour to be able to know that i was able to help and encourage you with my art (and i hope to continue doing so in the future!). the spreadsheet's been updated accordingly.

in regards to the raffle prize - "I prefer to have a work that inspired by the artist" - could you elaborate on that? :') just out of curiosity. and please don't worry about being put on the spot - the long duration is for people to make up their minds and not feel guilty about what they might want to say to me LOL

other people've mentioned maybe doing some artworks with animals, so i'll definitely try doing something along those lines with my original characters in the future! 

again, thank you for the support! (re: night skies - you might see something with glimpses of that in the next couple of weeks. C: )

For me, rather than ask an artist for a particular work is difficult. I am someone that always has to let the creativity flow. I have found some of my best work is a result of starting with an idea and as inspiration hits I alter my idea. The result is a completely unique piece that I could not really reproduce without prints of some kind. I love to surround myself with others inspiration and not what they were told or asked to do. I want to see the artist in the piece and not what I think I want. Sit down with your medium and begin blank. Be creative, start with an idea and run with it. When it feels done, it is. Even if it looks only like a blue square with dots. I look beyond the first impression and see the details, I imagine the brush strokes or lines as they form and how each part is a trademark flourish that should be encouraged and not honed. It makes it a part of the artist and not just their talent. I hope that makes sense.

thank you! ; u ; it's probably not going to end up happening b/c of the low number of participants, but i'm still compiling feedback to make a piece from the collected thoughts, so i'm hoping that might suffice more --- either way, i'll probably have to readjust how i do my raffles in the future (if i do future raffles crey)

So, you llama-ed me and I saw your art and was like "Why would someone good at art llama me, I know it doesn't mean much but they at least saw my file!" So, I'm not watching for free art, but if it seems I am then please, just don't even consider me! But I will make the journal post anyway, and pray for the best! Please, just reply if I am allowed to enter or not. ^-^ Thanks!

i give llamas cos they're fun to give out and my way of encouraging other people to continue creating art <: and it's fine! just make sure you comment with your journal post and a certain phrase before the 20th and you should be good (all others are optional but hilarious and/or helpful for me). 

i'm not sure if enough people will enter before the 20th, but it never hurts to try / o /

ahh hello! C: all you need to do really is just create a journal that links back to this raffle and then comment on the raffle with a certain phrase and the journal link; the extra stuff (feedback, picture/gif captions) are just ways to get extra tickets. 

but thank you alskjdfh --- i'm not sure if more people are going to join so i've just been going through the feedback given currently to see what i could do e q e

hello! the spreadsheet's been updated accordingly * U * 

i've never really experienced the bond between humans and animals, which is probably why there's uh --- about one artwork in my gallery with legit animals? it's definitely something to consider though so i'll try doing something along those lines! also, RE: chibis - slightly confused haha; could you elaborate?

and oh gosh :iconblushuplz::iconblushuplz::iconblushuplz: i hope to continue to be able to have my artworks do that for you! 

thank you for the support and feedback! it means a lot to me alskdjfh

The chibis -- well it's just about preference and personal taste I guess, lol... The coloring style is perfect of course, but I guess you can make them cuter :heart: maybe by drawing smaller bodies (but big heads), or shorten the arms and legs :D
You're welcome!! and thanks for the opportunity :D

eee hello! just a sidenote before i go onto reply to your feedback (thank you for the extremely comprehensive opinion! i'll do my best to incorporate your thoughts ww) in that for the picture/gif caption, you weren't supposed to use the original --- and the one that you linked was the original. ^^" in addition, i'm not sure if you've included the phrase anywhere in your comment - it's supposed to be a check to make sure that people read, and i know you've read, but protocol /orz so if you could just get that fixed (editing your comment or whatnot) i can validate your tickets!

alsdkjfh amg you definitely do have talent! everyone has potential to do something great, and art is a lifelong hobby - people inevitably do end up comparing themselves against others, but what matters more is your own personal growth; that's my opinion, but whatever works C: colouring wise, i'm not sure if i'd be able to make a tutorial given that i'm still experimenting around and there's always many ways to achieve the same effect, but i can definitely try taking more WIP shots of works and do progression gifs, if that'd help!

AHH YES FANART to be quite honest, i'm not a fan of entering mainstream fandoms sops - ship wars and so much hype and everything ; u ; last time i went mainstream was shingeki no kyojin and that seems...so long ago, holy shit. i still need to do fanart of it but i'd probably halfass it so :icondojimathumbsupplz: 

vocaloid wise, i do have a couple doodles/colour palette busts on my side account (angst-lord)! i'll probably try and do more of them with other fandoms in general because they're incredibly relaxing and a fun way for me to do fanart. RE: karneval - tbh i'd probably only draw tsukitachi really sops 

academia's a horrid art block, but if you're into sengoku basara / vagrant soldier ares / gangsta / pandora hearts , they're on my priority list when summer starts. that and lotsa fanart for all the rowboats of the numerous ships i pledged to go down with C: 

yeah a couple other people have mentioned doing more character-driven/portrait works and i'll probably go back to doing them more! at least so i don't scream about the other eye and everything haha --- i've noticed that my anatomical skills and the such have kind of become stagnant, so thanks for bringing that up www

here's to more pretty backgrounds that can hopefully let me collect your tears and soul :^)))))))

oH MYGOD BUT YOU'RE HELLA RAD TOO :iconheshipthemsohardplz::iconheshipthemsohardplz::iconheshipthemsohardplz::iconheshipthemsohardplz:

This was daunting when i first saw your response at 1am lolol. Edited my post with a new pic o3ob
i didn't actually know that image went with the quote - i Googled it and that came up so lol.

I'm glad my feedback was helpful, even if it's just a little bit. It would be awesome to see wip shots though!

I know the feeling re:fandoms. I joined the BH6 movie fandom really late and it was daunting and the drama was just *shudders* totes checking out your side account though!

I... actually haven't read/seen any of those lol. But i have friends who do so I'll definitely look forward to possible art this summer o3ob

Thanks ♡

Edit: i already follow angst-lord lol

omg why would it be daunting --- i try not to act like an arse unless someone's throwing shade at me and then i go salty af but yeah :iconmilly-fox:

//pats it's going to be okay shhhhhhh just think about if hiro died instead of tadashi and all will be well

if you have time though, do check out vagrant soldier ares at least! it's already completed; the art isn't exactly top notch, but the plot and character development are A+ fantastic ; u ; the fandom's extremely small though so it's both a blessing and a bane because i can't find any good fanfics yet there aren't any ships or diehard fangirls and i can keep all my bbies close to myself //ORZ

LMAO yeah i should probably use it more often now; i've been telling myself to make it more active with ~ tasteful ~ dumps, but that still hasn't happened.

Surprisingly the WK fandom is still going. We have a number of great epic level stories that still gets updated. The anime is.... well, it's very 90s lol. And a lot of the plot is actually in the dramas so unless you go hunting for the CDs or translation, the show seems kind of shallow. Also finding the OVA is a huge pain in the butt. And Gluhen still divides the fandom. And them there's Side B, lol

But if you like pretty boys and catchy music, totally go for it o3ob

1) i need to see a link back to the raffle with your journal before i can enter in your tickets.
2) if you could put your OC reference in the journal and not the comment, i'd appreciate it. (edit, re: OC - i'm slightly confused on what you're trying to specify here.)
