Thank you to all the Deviants who have welcomed me in my first week at DA, you made me very excited to be here!
I don't feel there's much else I can say right now without pouring my heart out all over the floor, but please believe that it has really been appreciated. I hope I can pass along the enjoyment I'm getting from looking at all this wonderful artwork in the future, as I continue to work and improve my techniques.
For now, I'll say it again: thank you! And if you stumble across this and have some words of encouragement for someone both new to digital art and plagued by self doubt, I would be eternally grateful for that too
