HELLO I wanted to let folks watching here that I am super duper active on Twitter, @vantidart, and a little less so on Tumblr as vantid. On Twitter, I try to post mostly art, works in progress, and photos of the natural world that surrounds me.

I've been rather inactive on DA the last year or two. I was overwhelmed by the number of submissions in my inbox and could never browse them all.

However, I know there are folks who have been wanting them and I'd like to give everyone who does a chance to get them at this price. Until the end of February, I will be accepting 3 by 4 inch badges in coloured pencil for $100, plus shipping. After Texas Furry Fiesta and the end of the month, they will no longer be available for this price! I do not know how much I will charge for colored pen

Hey! I'm just dropping by to admire your art.
I love the expressions and the very realistic light effects. It's beautiful how you make the eyes of the animals you draw come to life and be so expressive, just as everything you draw. 
How long have you been drawing digitally? And when did you realize you want to become a professional artist?
Well, I'm not good with words, so..
Bye ^^;
