Aaaaa okkk well it’s been awhile since I drew this… I’m feeling incredibly nervous haha XD my heart is dropping slowly to the pit of my stomach.
I don’t know where to begin, but taking it slowly - I can’t believe it’s already June… shouldn’t it still be mid May haha. I underestimated the amount of time (as always) and had planned to do a drawing of Madison but I have a bit of a block, so I gave Thomas a try (who I also absolutely adore). I really didn’t want to miss out! Happy (late) May Appreciation Month, May!
So, I feel like I’m treating this like a confession lol. I’ve tried to leave messages/asks a few times in the past but backed out. The closest I’d come to leaving a message was when you followed me back, I really couldn’t help but holy shiet, what, what this has to be a mistake!? I always get these heart attacks when you like an art post, in which case I then melt under the heat of a thousand suns, or when you like a reblog… it reminds me you’re following me and just jfkldsjfa;lsdf
May I’ve always known you to be really (and really) friendly and approachable, your replies and posts on tumblr set that fact in stone haha. Your friendliness and just being the all-round, fantastic person you are is a reason why I’ve wanted to leave you a message for a long time. Though, I’m still considering to back out as I type this haha;; I’m not sure how to word myself in a clear, concise way. I feel this could potentially grow into a long winded story that’s based on what is now somewhat-muddled memories.
But I believe the gist of it is that I feel like I have stalked you… for quite a bit of time. XD The first time I came across your art was around when I was 11 on Neopets, it was of your Draik(s) and I was floored by the way you draw. It was also the year I swayed back and forth whether I wanted to ask my parents to buy a tablet and your art was one of the most influential in making the decision. This’ll probably all sound very cheezy, but I just knew then that when I grew up I wanted to be able to ‘draw like that’.
I feel like I have a whole lot of things to say but I’m still feeling nervous and have exhausted whatever thinking capacity I have, but aaa lol some things I want to vaguely mention are… Harry Potter, The Land Before Time, (..picking up the phone)(I am so absolutely terrified when my parents’ friends ask over the phone in Chinese, lol;;) and David Attenborough.
I absolutely love having your posts on my dashboard (it’s not the same when you’re not around haha), I don’t think I could possibly love it any more any other way. Now before I slide away into void… I hope you’ll like this, and yes enjoy every-month-is-May-appreciation-month. :)
