A couple of compliments from friends that came on the same day. One’s kinda funny.
“Can I just marry your art UwU”
I now pronounce Anonymous and my art, husband and wife (or wife and wife, or husband and husband; take your pick)
“I wanted to tell you that you are absolutely one of my favorite artists I see around here. I love your characteri design (which is distinct to your style as well as to each character they have striking differences so they all stand out but not necessarily overshadowing or crowding each other) as well as your tendency to so effortlessly balance curves and angular lines together, I could go on but there’s only so much room in an ask! Keep on artin’!”

My reaction to this ask! ^
AAAA, thank you LiWa! This has got to be one of the nicest things ever said about my art. I appreciate the compliment, as well as your interest in my silly stuff! I do try hard to create personalities rather than simply just characters (also, quite phobic about Same-Face Syndrome, which I suffer a bit from!), so the designs are reflections of the subjects. Quite like real people!
Thank you so much! And yes, I will keep on artin’, but after these darned exams. 10 more days till freedom!
