I'm not a new watcher, but since I'm a pretty silent one, I'd like to say howdy too I hope you don't mind that I don't comment much, cause I really love your work and you always brighten up my day, I just feel I don't really have anything constructive to say, your work is always amazing, even your doodles.
(I know this sounds cheesy and probably stupid, I'm sorry for that, but it's true )
For what it's worth, I've been watching your art for a while now, and it's really been inspiring! Although I feel bad since you're the same age as me, but I can't wait to see what you do next. The humor combined with skill really makes your art stand out!
Old watcher (for about a year? Maybe?) here. Your art is awesome and bright and colorful and hfusdg I LOVE IT ; u ; It's very unique to dA, which tends to be flooded by anime and artsy photos and stuff. Also, you're super-duper nice. >80
