used your frosty edges brush here. didn't find it in your gallery :( [link]
just to tell you thanks for the word on you page about the map of the world,

keep on create, thank you again,
this is the way i feel Deviant, we are alone and then we can see and meet with the art of other,
if you have some time come and see what i'm trying to do.
thanks. i often feel that my understanding of everything around me is so utterly wrong that there's no hope of ever leading a 'normal' life, but if others think the same way, then that gives me a bit of hope.
forgot how sexy your voice is..
