Llama  If you came here to thank me for the llama, please just give a llama back instead, fav/comment on some of my pictures or watch me as a 'thank you'. It's far more appreciated.
Sad dummy Thank you messages make it harder for me to see actual comments on my drawings. :c

salmon heart bullet  So no need to thank me! You're welcome!!

If I may dare to criticize your work, I find your creations quite different in quality. Most of your last ones are very clean, interetsing and at a pro level (or similar level) and some look like thay are made by you but some years ago.

I am quite surprised of this. My advice, as a simple watcher and amateur, would be that you try to look to your creations and think about the way to improve every pieces you create.

And I know that not every a creator makes is not perfect, believe me, I know

That's interesting ...

Can you show me an example of this?

Of course. In your main gallery, in your last updates, the works are really incredible, both with the light, the atmosphere and the impression expressed by your creations.

But, "Be more careful around the fire" is for me very simple, very "basic" in comparison. I have the same impression with "Knight of the Moon". It is next to "Chasing the light" and honestly, i've the impression that you made the Knight years or monthes before. It is much more simple, both with the theme, the posture of the main object (monster or character) and the impression is very "normal", with less fantasy or dream.

In most of your creations, there is a lot of yourself, your inner work that is clearly showing at its best, but not in the two I mentioned, like some kind of regression. I still find the contrast very strong.

I hope that I'm expressiong clearly my impression, I'm really not trying to diminish your achievements or to sound like a snob or a troll.

Thank you, Marie! Your work is great, too! <3
