DailyDeviation! Cries out of happiness and dies.

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 28, 2015, 1:06 PM






I have never had a doubt that it would take me some more years to become good enough to get a Daily Deviation... if I'm lucky. Today, I came home from a long day of work and I immediately saw what could only be one person :+fav: Fav'ing my entire Gallery. I mean, over 90 Activity Messages? Come on! I was about to give that person my biggest thanks when I saw the comments on the font I uploaded two or three days ago:

Free fantasy font: LSW Drachenklaue by RetSamys

I mean... my heart grew three sizes today. Then, I died of cardiomegaly. Then, I recovered from this metaphor. But I am left with a warm and fuzzy feeling that I will hold in my chest for the rest of the week.

Thank you so, so much to @PirateLotus-Stock for featuring the DD. I'm not sure I deserve it, but I'll take it! I don't know who you are or why you are such a beautiful person, but I hope people reading this will check you out. Thank you for being part of our big community that I am lucky enough to be part of as well! Here's some of your work I liked and that I want to feature (I insist):

And also thank you all for all of the nice comments and the Faves and the watches. Wow! Celebrating with Pizza and a quick and ugly Journal Skin.

This is the most excited I've ever seen you be. Congratulations :tighthug: xD It's awesome that you got a DD! Although kinda funny (in a nice way) that you're so exceedingly happy and thankful for it.
Honestly though, it's very well deserved. And personally I think there's loads of stuff in your gallery worth a DD, but I'd never thought to actually suggest. I should learn how to.

People say that about me when they give me a whole bar of chocolate.
It really made my day and I feel really great about this one and having invested so much time.

You think so? Hah, I should find the energy to suggest some of your Deviations as well, your quality output is much higher than mine. You can actually draw stuff!

(I can't get another DD for another 6 months, just so you know. It's the rules.)

Well, I thought that I might get there... in ten or twenty years. I think you can do it!

First of all, Congrats on the DD!
Secondly - That was you? When I saw it on the DD, I was like: "That is a pretty nice font, might look at into it later." But, now? Wow. That's cool. And rather unexpected. XD

Thanks!
I know, right? It's hard for me to realise as well, but I actually did it! I can now stop making art completely. Just kidding, I won't.

:la: It's my pleasure! It's such a cool font, useful for all kinds of things, and I love the thought that went into it about how dragons would write with their claws.  Wonderful work, I'm glad lots of people are getting to see it :) :huggle:  And thank you for the feature ^^
