Read it! You really have to, otherwise you miss out on something!°
Seriously... just read!
This might sound very random and sudden, but I was thinking a lot about my gallery here on DeviantArt lately, and also about how many people know it for the artwork I do.
I wanted to say how precious and meaningful every single comment and favourite is to me. Even when I seemed very quiet and seclusive for the past two years, you never gave up faith or hope in me and showed me to keep on going and never give up. I kept up uploading artworks here but most of the time, I didn't have the time to update my journals or to keep you updated about my artsy stuff and life. This really is something I want to change here, despite my come-back being slow, I gradually want to get more involved in the community of DA again and also help other artists to be pushed more into the light.
I've been a member of DA for 8 years, yet I became more active a while after making this account, and I gradually grew together with you, made beautiful friends. You helped me share my artwork with the world and never ceased to appreciate it. I *so* wanted to thank you for everything you do for me to keep me going. My love towards this community has grown, and with every step I make, I want to take you along. The past two years were so filled with negative and emotional stress that I neglected most of the communication with my fans such as comments as well as notes. I will be gradually working on replying to all of them <3 Thank you for your patience. <3
I have many dreams of realising my comic "Myre", to get out into the world together with my friends, make movies, travel a lot and most of all, do more artwork and improve!
Since many years, I have been trying to submit artwork to Ballisticpublishing EXPOSÉ but never made it in. Last year, one of my paintings "The Forgotten" made it into the shortlist, yet got booted out at the final judging round. Despite never making it in, I never gave up hope and tried to improve my painting skills and depictions of my visions. This year, I submitted new paintings to Exposé and received a message that one of my pieces got shortlisted! Then just some days ago, another painting got shortlisted too! So it's now two of my pieces being in the final judging round! It's so exciting!!! It's a sign to hope, to never lose faith and to stay strong against all waves coming towards you in life. I know you can make it, if you wish for it, and if you keep on working on your dreams and hopes!
Thank you so much for all the love, words and immense support you give me throughout this community!!! FINGERS CROSSED TOO!! XDD
Hopefully I can re-open my monthly artist feature Newspaper again, too! I will definitely keep you updated about it, as it has always been something small I could give back to you. <3
Also, as a sign of my appreciation, I will make a point raffle
in the coming days!
Keep your ears perked and your eyes open for it! It will contain a little Plant Spirit as well!
Also, you cann follow me on Twitter to be always up to date with me and my artwork. You can get as well in touch with me a lot quicker over there (yay for mobile devices!)
If you have it, poke me over there too! ~> AlectorFencer on Twitter
