What a surprise to get!

Hey everyone! I got a very pleasant surprise on Sunday, I logged onto my my deviant art account , which I had not been able to get to in a few weeks, to find out that I got a Daily Deviation on one of my drawings! Which explains the 2000 plus messages that were in my inbox when I logged in. I nearly fainted.

Mine is the sepia coloured sketch in the middle there.

Here's the full drawing: Titled "Angelique"

A Daily Deviation is hard to get on a place as big as Deviant Art...there's about 12 million people on DA and someone else who likes your drawing enough to get it featured on the front page of the site, kinda has to make a sales pitch to a designated gallery moderator as to why the piece deserves to be on the front page in the first place.  So, I'm really happy and honored to get noticed!

And it helped me get two sales on my paper dolls...yayyy! I'm hoping it will bring in some more commissions as well.  Fingers are crossed.

Just wanted to share this with all of you here.  I have a tutorial all ready for my next post...get ready for lots of pictures.  I always love to share my process with others.

Happy creating everyone!

  6. Congratulation! That is amazing. Although, I think I would cry if I had to suss through 2000 emails. Your work is incredible so it comes as no surprise that you would be honored in such a way.
