your art is just amazing! I have no words for it.. I have a question on your website. Did you design the illustration on the two books?

Hey ;v; I know you're probably a bit flooded with feedback messages and I hope this doesn't bother you too much, but I'd just like to drop in with a comment.

I've known of you for many years now, I used to watch your speedpaints on your old account all the time, I absolutely loved the Okami ones and the LOZ ones. Seeing you on this account after finding it a few months back was breathtaking. You have improved in art in leaps and bounds- you've come very far. I want to thank you for being such an inspiration and fantastic artist ;u; It's been amazing seeing your latest artworks and it's just so crazy to imagine where you once were and where you are now. You were such a big inspiration back when I started in digital art (and some traditional) and you still remain to be so <3 Thank you for your time, this was a bit longer than I anticipated it to be, so I apologize. Have a good day <3
