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.

Congrats!, and good luck with the raffle c:

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)

Of course, Sunnie. Anything for you. You put up with way too much of my shit. It's the least I can do.

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 /

:icongracefulsunshine: I threw your art and raffle url on Gaia and Mabinogi forums so hopefully you will be getting more watchers--not for the raffle, but for liking your art. ^^

alksjdfh thank you so much for doing so! :iconheshipthemsohardplz: ; u ; i should probably remember for if i ever do a raffle in the future to make it easier for people to join since it's likely that i'll end up just drawing something from the feedback for this one, haha, but thank you again!

I would love to join, but i don't have all the requirements. But is a nice idea! Good luck for everyone that joined.
gracefulsunshine's avatar
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
