Hi all:)

I just want to thank everyone who likes and supports my art. It might sound like a cliche, but it really isn't, I do feel satisfied and grateful when I get notified that someone added me to their watch. And, to add to that, my main DA goal is to make some specific tutorials about things I think are often ignored or under-analyzed. As I plan for them to be in a video format, decently long, solidly constructed and completely voiced, I wouldn't want to make them if nobody's going to see (and hopefully benefit) from them. So, that's another reason why I really, really appreciate people who watch me here on DA. Later on, I will address this in greater detail, but now I think it would be nonsensical. I touched the subject a bit here: Random thoughts and plans after my first raffle:)

I also firmly believe that people who watch me are genuinely interested in my work, as I deliberately avoid things like "watch for watch" or "watch me if you want to xyz" or faving things I don't even like to get "watched out of politeness/obligation".

So, while for some people with bunch of watchers, this journal entry might seem unnecessary or overly cliched or whatever, I really do feel this way and I really appreciate every single person that enjoys my work and finds it appealing enough to watch me or to comment or to give any input whatsoever.
I am in a very specific situation regarding my arm and shoulder for the last two years (Hopefully It will go away, I am not losing vigor or hope:) I will also address this in some detail sometime in the future, I don't think such whining would be appropriate now:) ), which basically renders me unable to do client work and to draw for more than 10-20 minutes a day. So, what I CAN do, is learn and learn and learn and occasionally express myself (when I manage to draw something in numerous 20-minutes parts:) ) here. So, I thought to myself, if I can't do work, I'll do what I CAN - which is, find people who appreciate my art and in the process, make those tutorials. I wouldn't have time for any of that if I was able to actually continue working at the pace I did before, so, this might be a blessing in disguise:D
I have no doubts things will get better, but when it will happen, I don't know. What I do know is when they get better, I will definitely still continue to pursue my goal of getting more people interested in my art which would lead to the ultimate goal of creating those tutorials which would actually end up being watched by somebody:)
I certainly don't plan on overworking myself to death (again), so I am sure to stay here on DA and continue with my goal and hopefully not only that, but get to know interesting people too.

So, while I know that if 100 people open a journal, 5 people will read it and 0 will comment on it, I still hope that some of you read this and also comment:) It would mean a lot and I would appreciate comments and discussion/exchange, as (as you can imagine) I do have time to truly commit to every single comment or person that would like to share a few words etc.

That said, this milestone would be great with some kind of a contest/raffle/giveaway, but I already have an ongoing raffle, which I started several days ago and which ends on sunday, 18. oct. So, it kinda overlapped, but I don't intend on stopping with those, so basically, it makes no difference. Let this ongoing raffle be also a "100 watchers" one, why not? Speaking of which, you can find it here:
[FINISHED] FREE RAFFLE - get a gurl drawn #2EDIT:
Ok, the time has come, this is essentially what the "brackets" look like:
Bullet; Green full body anime gurl prize applicants:
aaand, the winner is:
RyByg! So, RyByg, congratulations, I'll be sending you a note. Make sure you respond in ~48 hours:) You get a full-body anime gurl pinup-ish drawing:)
(btw, it seems that loves to give me 3's, first raffle was also number 3)
Bullet; Green portrait/bust anime gurl prize applicants:

That said, I did manage to scribble a funny commemorative drawing - it's a quicky, but I think it's funny and it kinda shows my appreciation, I hope:)

101 watcher 'thank you drawing'  :D by JBMDoolio

So, thanks again and feel free to comment and talk, ask me anything etc.

edit - lol, I got my 101st watcher as I was making this "100 watcher" journal and submission:) So, a quick edit of the drawing was in order (so, Tricity, you're the one line to the left of the "t" in the drawing:D)
