I just wanted to say I'm very grateful for the deviantART community, or at least the people I got in touch with. You guys changed my life, in a good way! Now, I want to thank you all personally, but still in a journal so everyone can see how amazing you are! ;D
First of all, thank you ~Myuna
, for the amazing bookmark you drew me for almost catching your kiriban! I received it today, and well, it really made my day! It's even more amazing in real.
The other small messages in it were really sweet, too. I'm very grateful that you wanted to do such an amazing thing. ^^
The group is just returning from having been inactive for a while, but I feel we can really make it an awesome and unique place, together with the help of some other great people, such as ~drosera-sundews
(and more, of course! ^^).
Then there's *Ziirux
. I randomly met you here on deviantART by commenting on one of your drawings, but you've become a good friend of me in the time we've known each other. Not only do I really enjoy chatting with you about... all kinds of things, really, but I also love to see you improve, something you've definitely been doing and I believe you can keep going! ^^
Next is DaybreaksDawn
, who offered the amazing silver fox pendant for the 'Fox Kits in Spring' contest from #FoxArtistsOfDA
. I'm wearing this necklace nearly every day, and I still love it every time I see it. It has really become a part of me, and for that, I'm very grateful.
This is an example of the silver fox pendant (this one's not mine, but it shows what it looks like):
Now, I want to thank =Gewalgon
for bringing me her beautiful message of hope. I don't know if saying thanks is enough, because you helped me embrace life more. I feel like a much more balanced person now. You are an amazing person, I said it before, but I'll just say it again.
Thank you *goiku
for the cool fox magnet I won through the same contest as the one with the necklace. I remember you got first in that one. ^^
And of course I can't forget =Snowshrum
, I love talking with you, and I still remember our random DA Muro conversations. xD
My classmates still remember the time when I made akutaq for them together with some others, thanks to your recipe. Lately one of them said we should make it again. xD
Also, I want to thank you for the awesome gifts you have made for me. ^^
And, finally, I want to thank firagare
for being one of the first people I got in touch with on this website, and the person I did my very first art trade with. We may not have talked much lately, but I still wanted to give you some special thanks. ^^
Also, a very happy birthday to you, and if you read this much later, I hope you had a great birthday anyway. xD
To all who made me gift art, or did trades with me (or otherwise made me art xD), thank you very much, all of you! I really love seeing my characters in other people's styles, so here's a little feature of some of my personal favourites from you (in no particular order).
Then, thank you very much to all of my active watchers, for your lovely comments, critiques, encouragement and for making deviantART a cool place! Without you I'm not sure if I would've still been here.
Thank you, all great artists out there, for sharing your beautiful works with the world! You have inspired me, amazed me, taught me things (even if not directly) and made me browse this website for hours and hours day after day. ^^
Last, but definitely not least, there's also a special thank-you to all people I know in real life who have an account here (and the people who don't, as well, if they'd ever read this o3o). I'm not sure if you'd like to get a random spam of mentions in your inbox, so I won't bother you with it, but I'll tell you again that you are awesome. Again and again you have proven to be great friends, during times that I was very happy, and during times I was sad. I'm very glad I have met you, everyone!
If you're reading this, and feel disappointed because I didn't mention you personally, please remember that I'm quite good at forgetting. You're awesome, you know! ;D
