EDIT: Wow, I so stunned and thrilled to be honored with a Daily Deviantion. I can't express how much I appreciate your support. A million thanks go to $y2jenn for choosing my work and to `TomWilcox, who recommended King of Spades, for being such a considerate and supportive person and a great inspiration as an artist. The recommendation means a great deal to me. Those of you visiting me should be sure to check his work. The color and detail is astonding.
Welcome to evereyone who has just discovered me, I really appreciate you stopping by. I'll try to catch up to my messages soon, but thanks in advance for the wave, faves, and comments. I've just finished my finals, so I'll be able to spend more time here and with my artwork. Please enjoy your stay!
Wow, I really haven't had much of a presence here in the last few months. I'm sorry I haven't been more active, but please know that your faves, comments, views, and general good thoughts in my direction have not been unnoticed.
I hit three milestones in the past month at almost the same time: My 1 year DeviantArt anniversary, 100 watchers and 3000 views. I'm really thrilled that my work was so well received in my first year here. I anticipate being much more fun to watch this summer, when I don't have homework breathing down my neck.
I have one take-home final due Wednesday and a statement about my final portfolio due Friday, after which I am a free woman for the summer. After my move on Monday I'll be able to draw after work without guilt I've been a bit jealous of those of you who are on the semester system and finished already, but I'll have my summer soon enough.
So my summer goals are, of course, more of the card set and the 100 Theme Challenge. I'm planning to enter more contests, including perhaps `Endling's OC Tournament [link] can see Elysium or Adelaide as good fighters, and it would give me the motivation to make their character design sheets. ~testdrive's contest [link] and *cypherx's Best Friends illustration contest [link] are also intriguing. I have lots of fun character designs lurking in the margins of my class notebooks, so hopefully some of them will make into a presentable form.
I hope finals go well for those of you still at it, and a good summer to the rest of you!
