Wonderful feature! Thank you for everything you guys do :) :hug: I often feel that traditional media, and especially watercolors, are overlooked on DA in favor of digital, so I truly appreciate having this group as a haven of sorts. There are so many talented watercolorists here that continually inspire me. Thank you all!

Yes, Ithilloth did a wonderful job Panda Emoji-11 (Clap) [V1] 

Those are mine words and thoughts too :cutenod: 
I like art in every form, but you don't see traditional artworks very often...when you look through general groups, or artworks submitted for a contest. The majority is digital or photography :thinking: 

I must admit that when I vote somewhere, I tend to be more favorable for a traditional artwork. It's a way to "help" the traditionalist. Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]

Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way! I admit, I tend to vote for traditional works more myself. :nod:

it's funny to see the connection between the left picture and the right picture of each row ^^
Ithilloth Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2017   General Artist
Yes... they are strangely connected. :paranoid:
