Beautiful work of art - painful and heartbreaking to view.  Well done - you got the point across perfectly.  Makes me wish I could save them.

No, browsing art and seeing how other people do it is a great way to learn and find inspiration :)

This drawing I have looked at time and time again. The texture, fire, and lighting is fantastic, the scene tells the story. The one drawing haves people knowing the story. The action was awesome, there was action, romance and sadness packed into one painting perfectly. The scene was very cute, and I have to say a HUGE thumbs up because this was an awesome drawing I definitely am adding to favorites. I love it.

I so rarely post comments, but I think I should this time. Jocarra did such a phenomenal job on this piece and really put together exactly what I asked her to. It is for that ability that I come back to her time and again for art. I wanted to say that when I showed my friend it, he was thrilled and gave a huge thumbs up for the detail put into his character. It also gave us both a new drive and the original intent behind the scene wound up being altered so that their story could continue on.

Thanks Jen, truly. And maybe, just maybe this year, I might be able to commission you again. (I need more background art for the laptop D:)

<3 Thank you so much, it's always a really great feeling to know that the people I do art for really enjoyed what I made, or that it affected them on some level.  Probably one of the coolest parts of my job :)  I think it helped, though, that something really "clicked" with this image (I wish I had more control over which ones "click" with me!), and helped make this what it is.   I know how much characters and their stories can mean to people on a personal level, so it's flattering to hear it the art of the characters actually inspired something in the characters themselves, as it were.  Kind of a full-circle thing, neat :)

Anyway, thanks again!  Your support, even if it's "just" in comment form, is lovely and appreciated :)  Cheers!

I know I don't post on the images themselves very much. I tend to give my thanks in private, and it's usually a lot shorter than the genuine appreciation I feel for the work that's put in. You are still a phenomenal artist.

Thank you very much :)  And the story belongs to ~Kaelea and her friend, as it's an illustration of an RP scene, I believe - you'd have to ask her!

This is absolutely gorgeous. Firstly, I love the emotion expressed in this, and as usual, that detail. It's been so long since I've peeked through your delicious gallery, hah! :heart: This is probably one of my absolute favorites of yours, however. Beautiful work once again!
