Ladies and Gentleman,
This is your friendly neighborhood Nobleheart giving you cheers on this December night, thinking about how rewarding it has been since I started roaming DeviantArt. For over two years, I have gone from art lover that collected various art pieces that pleased me to becoming an "Advancing Colorist". Also, I have made great strides in my storytelling, having a better and more meaningful understanding of character and world building. Lastly...I have made many good friends and acquaintances along the way, making my life that more richer of an experience. Let me make a shout-out to those wonderful people that I hold in high regard:
The "mother" of my beloved Lavender Snow and Tabitha Embers. It's through her providing me these beautiful angels, through adoption, that my creative roots was planted here. And it all began with this -
My first friend on DA and fellow hat lover.
My Danish Shewolf...my Watson...Meeting her was one of those "destiny" moments in one's life where you meet the right person for the best moments in life.
A "couple" of beautiful people that I'm so blessed to have befriended, as we have a special bond rooted in a special faith.
Each of these people hold a special place in my heart for what they have given me during my growth in these creative grounds. The work they did for me, the work that allowed me to build my creative identity and the meaningful connection beyond those things means a lot.
Meeting this great guy was very nice, but what he gave to me was even nicer...the keys to enter the world of Digital Artistry. My Quest for Color and all of the adventures I continue to embark on, wouldn't be as intriguing and rewarding if not for coming into his orbit.
Ah...My Boss Lady. It's funny how this one particular piece of art -
- would have me seeking to employ her for some great art of my girls, only to later on have me seeking to be employed by her. Another one of those "destiny" moments where you meet a person that's just so right for you to have in your lifetime.
These great artists are the commissioners that I called on to do great art for me and they delivered in such a marvelous way, that I'm both in amore and indebted to them in various amounts befitting their contribution to my overall love of art. I'm not afraid or ashamed to say that I'm a huge fan some of these fine people and that fandom is a lifelong one.
And lastly, my fandom of these people are out of pure admiration for their talent & skills and the inspiration they give me as I continue to develop my artistic self -
Honor and Harmony to one and all on this month of festive holidays and I will be looking forward to beginning again in the Year of 2014. Until then...
