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...

I wouldn't possibly have time at this point to thank each and every one of you in person, though I promise I will! But I'd just like to say a big thank you to all the friends I've made here and on other sites :hug: You don't know how much it means to me!

This year, I've been distanced from my friends that I know outside the Internet. Some of you might expect it's due to the idea that my parents didn't want me to socialize with friends, but as summer went on, they started becoming more lenient, even encouraging me to invite my friends over for parties. I did start telling my friends that I was allowed to go to parties, hang out with them, etc. but it seemed like they didn't really want to talk to me, for some reason. I'm not really sure what changed, because we were all talking when school got out for summer break, but now it seems like most of them are trying to avoid me. Summer hangouts, birthday parties, movie nights...no invitations to any. I mean, I guess I'm upset about that, but I've been far from lonely this summer, thanks to all of you :3 
and for some reason i usually end up third-wheeling/ seventh-wheeling/ just being that awkward person while everyone else is talking at gatherings so maybe it's best that i don't go, and i usually choose not to go to parties and bonfires and such if i know who's going to be there and i know for sure that everyone will be busy talking to somebody else lol i'm so antisocial
like even if those people at the party are good friends of mine they aren't as close to me as they are to other people so they choose to talk to the other people instead and i'm like ok i guess you don't mind if i eat all this chocolate then?


This summer, I met so many great people from all around the world, as far away as Asia and Europe, and as close as right here in America! I'm soooo happy that I got to talk to all of you and I've really learned so much from all of our conversations ^^ I guess it might sound kind of lame that I probably have more real friends on the Internet than in my daily life, but I think you guys are such better friends than most of the people that I thought were my friends offline! *hugs everyone* It's been so much fun laughing [ and crying xD ] with all of you, and I think if I hadn't made so many friends online I'd probably be drowning in the hazes of antisocial summer life and just kinda floating around in a gray ghost form huehue
My parents have been a little worried because I told them that I don't really feel that close to any of my friends anymore, but they also really like that I'm getting to meet people of different cultures. 

I'm not crying
There's just something in my eye

Anyway *sniffles*
Thank you all so much ily you're all such wonderful people! I'm going to try and sort through things this year, and figure out who I actually think would be a good friend to me in my daily life, but for now, it's so comforting and it makes me so happy to know that even though I've never met many of you, you're still caring and accepting uvu :huggle: I guess this journal didn't make much sense but I'm not able to put how grateful I am into coherent words, and I don't want to keep repeating "thank you" but I'd just like to express how happy I am to have the chance to speak with each and every one of you! I hope that didn't sound creepy T_T But I guess I'll say it one more time, thankie all!

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
