Watcher Appreciation: February by painted-bees Watcher Appreciation: February by painted-bees
I remember when I was quite a bit younger, there was this handful of artists on the internet that I really, really liked. They seemed to have a lot of online popularity, and I wondered what that must have been like. I remember wishing I could get them to draw a picture for me--and how it would have made my entire life if I ever got a piece of art from them or something (which has since progressed into an unhealthy commissioning addiction, but I digress). But who was I to them? As far as I knew, they probably didn't even know I was such an avid fan haha!

I remember imagining what I'd be like if I were ever super e-famous--and how I'd draw pictures for my audience for the hell of it.

Well, I'm not super e-famous--but still, there are a handful of folks who openly mention that I'm a favorite artist to them. As strange as it is to think about, I appreciate the fact like nothing else!

Among those folks, :icondualitydreams: is one of the first which come to mind. Super supportive, and a very present, it just made sense to me that she'd be the subject of the second month of this whole watcher appreciation deal :]

Here's my little shout out and word of thanks! You don't go unnoticed. Toots, I appreciate you! <3

The character is her Michail :]

You know, reading something like that in the author remarks makes me happy, because it shows that I'm not the only one who feels that way! XD However, you are a very good artist in your own right - but I know that even good artists have artists they look up to, and even the best ones long for stuff in others' styles. :)
