>_< Pff, if yours is zero, mine's in the negative numbers, so hush you a'fore I bite you good. Rarrr! (sympathy for the uterus hating, though. Owwies)

Oh lol... now I remember where you got that from... My talent must be in the deep negatives in comparison to you...

Hey, that's weird. I think you got my markings wrong or something. ;)

Now now Brenda... one who can make a uber cute snow meow hugging her own tail sure's got talent in my book. *kicks himself for missing out on the auction*

I hope that's just your uterus talking. We all feel that way sometimes, but it doesn't make it a fact. I'd definitely be like, negative infinity, if you were the standard set. ;)

I recommend chocolate. Especially Entenmann's chocolate cake. Mmmm, chocolatey goodness.

Not everyone has more talent than you. ::Waves around her sketchbook:: You have more than I.

You have more talent and skill than you realize hon... it's hard to see sometimes, but we all know, and are happy to remind you that it's there.

Talent, pfft.

Sweetie, you have more talent then you'll ever be able to comprehend.

Prepare, but this is going to give you something to smile about, even if it sounds really, really corny. (Especially coming from someone you don't even know or associate with.)

I remember first seeing you on the Wolfhome boards selling a pose set, and afterwards you kept on trying to get my colors right. And the poses were so beautiful and I'd stare at the inked outline of them, and I'd take my finger to the screen and trace them. (I'm scanning some of my oldest art so anyone can see my VAST improvement...) And you were so nice about everything - like being this talented, wonderful artist - having so many people wanting to be just a smidgen as good as art at you... you didn't have that, "I am better than you because my art is 'better' than yours" attitude that some (really good) artists have.

I know I've said this before, but you have inspired me beyond belief. That's a talent, because at one time, I started drawing and someone said to me, "You call that art?" And I felt so, so bad. I cried because I was trying, I was working at it, and I put it up for critiques from anyone, because I was /dying/ to have someone say, "To make this better, fix the paw by doing this." Or something on that line. So for a while, I gave up drawing.

But then I came across your VCL gallery and I thought, "Ohmigod, this is so beautiful." And I started drawing again - and yes, it sucked even then. But I had you on my AIM BL for a while, and I was like, "Holy crap." So I asked you one day if I could look at the pose one of your pieces was in and use the pose in one of my pieces so I could practice it. I loved how the tail was and the face, and all of that, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get it to look even slightly like what you had drawn. I think maybe because I was trying too hard to get somewhere that probably takes years to get to.

I've worked like crazy to get somewhere near how you draw. You have this huge amount of talent, and I've talked about it with so many other artists in this "genre" of art, and we all agree that you are such a great artist, and a HUGE influence on art. A lot of people have chosen people like Solicit* or Goldenwolfen8 or Kyoht8 or Ebonytigress* to look towards for art ideas or references, or hell, even ideas on how to do things - but there are more people who look to your art because you're open about it. Your art doesn't come across as "Look, I have a stick up my ass" or "I spent ninety hours doing this - so obviously you can't do it...." Your art is open and says, "You can do it like this, you can be just like me, because you're an artist, and I'm an artist and although we may not be at the same level, you can get there."

I wrote one time in a comment to your journal about how to color white, and I never got around to thanking you for help with that. (I later used the technique you used in a piece in a piece I did. [It didn't turn out nearly the same, though.])

It takes talent to draw like you do. It takes talent to still be so nice when you're so openly idolized. It takes talent to smile and still be ready for the scrutiny of being an artist. It takes talent to make people who believe thay have no talent at all (like me) believe that they do have talent, and that they just need to work on it. And it takes talent to play off of "Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me..."

*'s- They're all great artists, but I don't look at their art HALF as much as I look at yours.

Sorry if I freaked you out with this comment x_o;

Thank you,
Jilly
