Thankyou very much. I really appreciate you taking the time to message me like this. ^_^

I actually ended up having a very quiet birthday this year, but it was still very nice.

And how have you been? Has life been treating you suitably well recently?

Sorry for not relpying quickly.
Depression hit me hard.
Currently I need to find a way to get to Sakura-con this year.
my friend is not going, she'd rather to to Everfree (pony con)
As for cosplays, I really want to try making something for a change.

Art wise. At a stand still.
I have to inspiration.
you?

Sorry for not relpying quickly.

-- That’s okay. I realize that real life issues have to come first every now and then.

Depression hit me hard.

-- I’m sorry to hear that life has been treating you so rough recently. Do you want someone to talk things through with, or is this more of a personal matter you’d rather not share?

Currently I need to find a way to get to Sakura-con this year.

-- That’s rather unfortunate. I’m not really much of a con goer myself, but from what I gather it is common practice for people to go together in order to share the expenses, right?

-- Is there no local con you can go to? Or is there something specific about Sakura-con?

my friend is not going, she'd rather to to Everfree (pony con)

-- The pony fan base seems to still be gaining momentum, but I didn’t realize that it had gone as far as having specialized pony cons. You think there would be enough pony related goings on at any anime/comic con to keep people satisfied.

As for cosplays, I really want to try making something for a change.

-- That’s a good idea. I know several cosplayers, and it seems like they get as much fun out of actually making their costumes as the do from wearing them. It’s a big part of the  hobby, and in many ways it’s an art form in it’s own rights.

-- If you’re feeling down, and a little lost art wise, perhaps taking up something new like making your own costumes is the way to go? Trying something new and exciting is often the best way to kickstart your imagination, and you did say it is something you’re already interested in trying.

-- Have you got any ideas for what costume you might like to start out on?

Art wise. At a stand still.
I have to inspiration.

-- That’s unfortunate. If you’re stuck, art wise, have you thought of expanding your horizons a little and trying something new?

-- It seems like a lot of your art is fanart featuring the same few characters/series over and over again, and while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, your horizons do seem a little narrow.

-- Have you thought of trying fanart from a totally new series? Or trying a fan comic even?

you?

-- September’s usually pretty busy for me, art wise, since it‘s the start of the Christmas rush. All the card and Christmas illustration work I get commissioned to do needs to be started well in advance, so everything can be printed up and ready in time for December, which means I’ve been spending a lot of my time drawing Santas and Christmas trees recently.

No problem. You're very welcome. ^_^

It's certainly a very impressive piece of work. The idea is very simple, yet you've executed it very well.

You see a lot of themed pictures on DeviantArt, characters based on zodiac symbols, or various colors, or the seven deadly sins... and the artist inevitably has to walk the razor edged tightrope between it looking too over the top and silly, and it being to understated and not really standing out.

What you did in your picture, was create a costume that is very aesthetically pleasing and original. You managed to make something stand out enough to be interesting, without being too over the top to be taken seriously, and that's something I felt was worthy of recognition.

No problem. ^_^

After seeing your latest picture, I thought it best to add you to the watch list.
I'm rapidly growing rather impressed with your versatility as an artist, and I feel that your work is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

Thanks for returning the favor, by the way. I appreciate the support. ^_^

You're artwork is certainly coming along very well, and I felt that it was important to let you know that. As an artist myself, I know how much it can mean when you realize that all the hard work you've put in has been noticed and appreciated.
