(Before starting that, did you ever noticed the reference about the text that is displayed on top of each journal entry ? The picture belonging to the design ?)
I see many friends doing this stuff, and I find it's a good way telling what I think about this place. Actually, back to October 2011, I never thought it would turn like that, creating an account on dA (actually my second one ; on the first one, I never posted a lot of stuff, I tend to do a lot of "false starts" with blogs and art galleries). For the fun fact, it was the first time I took on EMP as my screen name, cause I didn't want people I know from other places to find me here (the reason why I closed my first account).
So, I created a dA account to motivate me to work more, post more stuff, share my work. I was, like, doodling for a long time, and I wanted to speed up on this, and the least I can say, that was a good idea. I did huuuge progress -and that's not over yet, I hope, cause that aint good enough- thanks to the many friends here that took some interest in my stuff.
I want to thank many people, for two reasons : the first is that, without a community, a website like dA is just nothing ; the second is that, without all of these many interactions I had the past few years, I would probably have left an empty hole instead of this gallery. So, yeah, let's hope I forget no one ! Let's see what did happen since I'm here :
I'll always remember my first watchers,
, the ones that first posted feedback on my work ; a lot of you aren't around anymore, but know that I'm still following your works
I worked hard on an OCT on
, despite the fact that the disease stroked hard this year, permitting me to understand more deeply what comic-art means. Thanks to
, who always had a look on my work, and whose critics helped me to carry on ; thanks to all the people that participated too,
and the others, managing to make the universe of TXP more consistent and attractive
I met IRL other artists from France, and that was the first time I made the link between my artistic work and people that weren't behind a screen,
(with whom I'm currently working on a French OCT,
and all the other people, I can't remember everyone I met. Thanks to
for managing this cool group that is
( yeah, I'm somewhere on the picture, and no, I won't tell you where... Those who knows, please don't spoil x: )
I met too people with awesome artworks, artists with really cool skills, with whom I sometimes exchange words about stuff not necessarily related to art. I'm so shy IRL that's a mystery how I could just have talked to you in the first place.
thanks for sharing my art so frequently
I'll repay it one day, when I'll find how
you shouldn't worry that much about your art, it always rocked (btw, I don't remember if I already told you, but I would never had started doing anthro art before founding your gallery)
I'm so jelly of your skills
I know I should comment more on your stuff, but I feel really inferior and never have anything to say XD
It would never have been the same if I never would have met you ; I wish you a lot of mimes in a near future
And still, I'm watching a lot of great artists that are so under-exposed ; I wish I would not be so scared to death about social interactions, but if you're passing by, know that your works have inspired me at some point or another. I'll find a way to climb up to your level one day...
I feel like a moron having written all of this indegestible block of text, but that was sincere ; I hope all of you guys will find your way through this harsh world.
I hope to stay another few years if I can
Thanks for reading. Thanks for everything
