My policy is to send them a note asking what kind of present they want~ :dummy:
And then hope they want something. :eager:

Speaking of, it's getting closer to your birthday now, isn't it? >w>

Weeeellllllll... >w>
:iconshamwowscoutplz: With the new ShamBONK, NOW YOU CAN! :boo:
lol But seriously, sometimes it kinda backfires. :giggle: Especially when I find something to do that I really like doing, at which point I often forget to do my drawings until the last minute (right now, for instance; it's going to be ~KirbytehPink's birthday soon, and I haven't even started on their present! ^^;). :dummy:

That's still closer than some birthdays. 8D

Hmm, I see. Yeah, it's so easy to get distracted x'D

That is one very good observation. B)
WonderSparks's avatar
WonderSparksHobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed it is. >w<" Luckily, I'm done the picture now. :dummy: (I guess it took me about 40 minutes or so, judging by my response time XD)

Definitely. 8D

Usually, I won't do give a birthday comment to someone I watch unless I'm a familiar face to them in some way, and I'm not just some anonymous watcher on their list.

In most cases, a lot of people whom I watch on DA are already people I have on Skype, usually from PMU. There are exceptions, of course. If that's the case, Skype is usually easier, but if not, I usually send them a DA comment. Sometimes I even send both if I have the extra time and feel like they are a closer friend or someone I have known over a long period of time.

As for drawings, wish I did more of those for people on their birthdays. I've been pretty good about it since I got my tablet, but usually I just whip up a nice little coloured doodle of one of their characters - nothing extraordinary enough to post on DA but a nice little thoughtful thing that still makes their day. :) It oftentimes depends on how busy my schedule is and how close of a friend I consider the person. For the few people I consider close friends, I will take time out of a busy schedule to make sure they get something from me.

I also noticed recently a lot of my close friends have birthdays around the same 3 months, between April and June! :ohnoes:

Hmm, I see. :) I usually just do it all the time, because I want to x')

I wish I did birthday drawings more often, but I have so many acquintances that it becomes impossible to draw it for anyone, plus my motivation won't cooperate all the time. Now it's just only when I have time and motivation, or when it's someone REALLY important.

Hah, most of my friends seem to have birthdays in September - December :'D
