Hi there :D
I can't believe I haven't found you before.
I am completely in love with all your work!
You put so much effort and details in every one of them it's breathtaking :D
Your drawing style and colors are simply gorgeous!
Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see your future pieces :)

I'm also super excited to see an amazing artist loving the Fire Emblem series, I cant find many on the internet!

Hello!! :D (Sorry this comment is so late, I've been really inactive on DA ahaha) Thank you so much for your kind words, I often feel the style makes them all look simple so it means a lot that you notice the effort and details! Playing around with colors is one of my favorite things, so I'm really happy you like the results! Thank you for taking the time to stop by!!

I actually only just saw your picture of Zelda and Link in the Skyloft concept art costumes and realized you were the artist--it made me happy to see your rendition of Zelda in that outfit; the colors and style of the dress look so rustic and homey on her! I really like your clean cel-shading and the lighting you use, love the way you capture a different atmosphere befitting the character in each panel of your Masked Warriors piece, and your featured Avatar pieces look so solid and clean, the perspective and blur effect really give them a sense of depth!

also YEAHHHHHH WHERE ARE ALL THE FIRE EMBLEM ARTISTS I'm glad to meet someone else who appreciates this awesome series as well!! I think you have to look on Japanese sites to find most of the FE art, haha. FE Awakening has a pretty thriving fanbase on tumblr though; it sucked a lot of fanartists into the series, so there's that.

How do you get so many comments on every picture you've made? Is it luck?

You're gallery is totally breathtaking!!

I'm pretty sure about half of the comments in the numbers you see are usually me responding to people, haha. I've had really long discussions in the comments of some of these, and that boosts the tally a lot. But other than that, I would say it's because a lot of my drawings are fanart of popular things and I've been around for a while; if you look at, say, my Neopets doodles you'll see that I get far fewer comments on those than on Zelda illustrations. I think getting responses from people tends to come down to a combination of exposure (people actually finding your work in the first place), your own community participation (making people want to interact with you), and drawing things that elicit response (whether it's because they're well-drawn, funny, meaningful, controversial, or just in some way speak to people or reflect what they like).

Fair or not, it's a lot easier to get attention with fanart because people are already invested in the characters and universes of established work. I try to draw scenes that portray events or interaction between characters or funny things so that the storytelling or amusement factors of the scenarios make up for my artistic shortcomings. (Like any artist, I'm constantly learning and am well aware that I always have a lot to work on.)

In the end though, only the people who leave the comments know why they did so, so perhaps I should be asking you instead! I am really grateful to everyone who's left me feedback over the years, and thank you very much for your kind comment as well; I'm happy you enjoyed looking through my gallery! =)

Hiii I noticed a thing ( made it up :> ) Buuut, in my second profile of awakening, I paired MyUnit, Silver, with Panne and had my beautiful children. Then I noticed, ( If you've seen Wolf Children, you''l know) How much like Ame and Yuki I want them to be. Yarne would continue to embrace his inner bunny rabbit, and Robin will choose to become a hooman Tactician, like daddy. Aahhh, ideas. It's beautiful, man
