I now have over a thousand watchers, and I just wanted to say Thank You Thank You Thank YOU!! To all of you guys that have chosen to add me to your watch I want you to know that I appreciate it very much!
I know that it's not a lot of watchers compared to some of you guys with thousands of watchers, but PERSONALLY I can't believe that over a thousand people have chosen to add me to their watch! WOW! I'm so honored!
And I'd love to do something to celebrate. So I'm holding a contest (well a drawing really) where I'll be giving one of my watchers a free commission as a thank you to you guys. I wish I had the time and energy to do commissions for everyone, but sadly I'm just one person and that many commission would take me years! lol But one
of you guys will get a free commission!Here's how it works
You must be a current watcher and leave a comment here telling me who your favorite artist is and why, by doing that you'll automatically get your name put into a drawing. After a few days I'll close the journal entry and draw one of the names at random. Whatever name I draw, that person gets a commission of their choice. This contest/drawing is for my watchers only, so if you want to participate you must be a current
watcher (I don't want people adding me to their watch just on the off chance that they will get a free commission! lol Watch me for my art! haha).
Doing it this way is for two reasons - One, it helps me to get to know you guys a little better. By knowing who your favorite artists are it gives me a better understanding of your artistic influences. And Two, it gives me more artists to look up and check out. If I like them too, then awesome! I can add them to my watch and gain inspiration from their work.
And that's one of the reasons why we are here right? To help inspire and motivate each other! The Free Commission
The winner of the drawing will get a free commission. You can commission me to color something, ink something, draw something, or all the above (draw, ink, and color something). I can work on your existing art or do something for you from scratch. But it must be a single image and nothing too complex (please don't ask me to color an image with a dozen characters in it lol, I just wouldn't have the time to do that and keep up with my paid commission work). So nothing too complex please!
So, as my third grade teacher liked to say - 'Get your thinking caps on' and tell me who YOUR favorite artist is and why. They don't have to be here on DA. And you can name more than one artist if you'd like. But you have to name at least one artist and tell me WHY they are your favorite. I look forward to seeing your responses.
Thank you again, to all of you for the watches and comments and all the awesome support! You guys keep me going and growing!
