Some of the best art on DA that doesn't get much attention. I'm a sucker for fur detail and drawings that look like photographs :3 (and miniature food, and macarons)

Hello there! Alright, first off, I would like to note that I am not the best artist, but I will try to critique based upon what I have...

Alright, so let's get started here... First focus is the wolf. Your fur technique is amazing, just one thing, I don't know if I'm not ...

So I’m just waiting on fate to come.
Wrap around me
Think about all the foreign places we could be

Just think of all the places we could be
I’ll be waiting, waiting on a brand new day

Alternatively titled "The Path to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome", this is my birthday gift to my best friend online, Friskusis! Happy birthday :hug: I'm sorry this is so late T.T 

My wrist is about to fall off. I also discovered that I do not, as previously thought, spend two hours on a drawing. Rather, I'd say I take about five hours or more. I'm not really sure if I should be happy or extremely frustrated by that fact.
Up until starting this drawing, I hadn't touched my tablet in about three months or so, so it was definitely strange to be drawing digitally again. Hopefully it doesn't seem too obvious ^^' 

Well, anyway, more experimentation. I'm absolutely exhausted [ I was drawing this and working on a project at the same time ], so that's all I have to write for now. deviantArt is doing evil things to my font, so my apologies for any illegible html.

Salut tout le monde!

Thanks for dropping by my page c: I'm a 15-year-old from sunny southern California, and I like cake, drawing ( of course! ) anime, natural sceneries, cute animals, car-racing games, alternative rock, and money.
Just like any teen, I guess :3

You'll see mostly wolves in my gallery because that's what I get commissioned for, but I grew up drawing dinosaurs and dragons, so those might appear every now and then in my artwork.

My parents hate the idea of me drawing, so technically I'm not allowed to draw ^^' and I've never taken art lessons, which I wish I could have...though, it's good to make the best of what I'm given.

Well, that's about it! (And no, I don't really live in Antarctica, obviously)

Feel free to check out the other places you'll find me :D
