First off, sorry for like, not really posting anything recently. >_> I've been busy and crap. I'll try to get on all that art I owe.
BUT AT LEAST I WASN'T DEAD.
EXCEPT NOW I AM.
Secondly, for all of you who are too lazy to read everything I have written below, long story short is that these two people are amazing and you should all watch them or at least take a look at their page:
. They're truly brightened me up recently and both have incredible art. <3
For all of you amazing people who have spirit, perseverance, and are more amazing than the people who left after reading the thing above (just kidding, I'm sure those people are amazing too), I promise you that you won't be disappointed for reading what is below. Or so I hope.
Yesterday I got a note from one of my favorite people I met on here (no offense to the rest of y'all). I started following her a while back and she's one of the people I make sure to catch all of the art of and pay more attention to, because I love her art and I think it's under appreciated. She's also the sweetest thing ever. She was the one who drew my DeviantID, simply because I requested it. I didn't have to pay, didn't have to give her art, nothing. She just did it!
So continuing on, I got a note from her. She, randomly, as a present, drew me an icon to use!
So you see my icon? That's from her! And just to brag for her a little bit, it's the fourth icon she's ever made (I believe). That's how awesome she is. Furthermore, she does almost all of her work traditionally and has cute yet creepy designs. She deserves much more appreciation, so I would recommend you should all watch her or at least give her a little love.
<---that's her (she drew her own icon, too!)
Now I'm gonna art spam y'all with samples of her art:
BUT WAIT, I'M NOT DONE.
I was actually not going to post a journal for her until I had something to give back, but I got ANOTHER surprise today! So I have to thank both of these lovelies. <3
This one was from someone I follow a little less religiously (though that will certainly change now!) and found more recently.
. She has beautiful digital art and adopts and a wonderful personality (she's also gotten four DDs if her talent wasn't obvious enough). No worries, her art spam is below. Now she participated in the amazing April Fool's art thing this year and came up with an absolutely STUNNING marshmallow. Of course, I had already seen most of the art so was just about to delete that from my newsfeed thingy and look at more of her art... and then I read her description.
Near the bottom, she wrote, "It took me so long to complete this, show me love!! :'D
" AND HOW COULD I RESIST. I gave her and her art piece lots of love and we had an amusing and perfect conversation.BUT OMG I WASN'T EXPECTING TO GET SUCH LOVE BACK.
SHE GAVE ME A ONE MONTH TO DEVIANTART PREMIUM.
I literally saw the notification and was like "wait what I thought the free day was on the seventh" and then checked the date. And then looked at the notification again. For a few seconds. And then I realized just what had happened (the disbelief slowed down my brain a little bit). I don't know if you guys realize how much this means and surprises me, because DeviantArt Premium is one of those things I look at with longing before remembering that I'm poor. So yeah, you all need to follow her, too.
I'll put her icon here again just for emphasis:
ANOTHER ART SPAM:
Moving on, I just want to thank both of these amazing people once more. <3 I've been having a stressful month (lack of artistic motivation earlier on as well as some depression due to personal reasons followed by a week of finals) and these were the perfect gifts. I guess this is also a good time to remind all of you reading this that random acts of kindness truly are special and can change someone's day or week or life.
p.s. I'm going to try to challenge myself to draw at least 10-30 minutes everyday this month. <3
