I'm completely taken by surprise (how could I not be?), but I just found out that I got a Daily Deviation today for my work on Khajiit.

Khajiit by Temiree

I didn't even realize anything was amiss until I idly scrolled down my message center and saw someone congratulating me. I swear I froze for a few seconds after reading that. :lmao:

A huge shout out and thank you to FrostyPuppy for suggesting my work to KovoWolf, and of course Kovowolf herself for choosing it. I really appreciate being recognized again. Thank you so much you guys!

For some reason this one feels even more meaningful to me than last time. I think it's because I've been in an artistic rut lately, unable to find inspiration, energy, time, and sometimes self-confidence to make stuff like I used to. Work and life in general have been tougher than usual this month, and the weather hasn't helped either. I do feel like I'm on the upswing though, especially with spring and warmer weather around the corner, but receiving this DD definitely helps even more. =)

Also thank you to all the comments I've gotten as well, and I apologize for all the unanswered ones that were on that. I normally make a point to try to reply to everybody, but it looks like I somehow forgot to respond to them on that deviation. Whoops! :faint: I'll get to that soon!

Cheers, everyone! :w00t:

Hello there! I just went through your work and its safe to say that I am completely mesmerized by your art. :) I am sure you get that a lot so I am gonna move on to a question I want to ask you if you don't mind answering of course. I really like the speed paints and backgrounds you do. Just want to know what software you use for doing backgrounds? And also, how do you get to be so good? JK lol. Keep up the good work!

Hey there, I'm glad you like my work so much! =D Thank you!

For painting and backgrounds, I use Photoshop CS6. As for how I got to my current skill level, it's primarily a ton of practice, but I did my best also to observe things I saw too. If I saw a pretty landscape, I'd study it for a minute to see why it appealed to me, or why the light was the way it was. This goes for real life too. If I'm walking down the sidewalk and find the environment I'm in appealing, I'd look around and try to figure out why it was the way it was. You also have to look at objects too and figure out how light affects them. But most of all, it's practice!

Also to note, it's hugely helpful to have reference when you're drawing or painting. A lot of younger artists think it's cheating, but it really isn't. A lot of professional artists, for example, look up pictures of sunsets if they're about to paint one to help remind them of all the small details that make them look good that you sometimes forget about. =)

Wow. Thanks a lot for such a detailed follow up. I already knew that I want to be a good artist. Now, I know what kind of person I should become :) Thank you for such a humble response! I hope you won't mind my bothering you every now and then by asking questions while I am trying to learn and develop myself as an artist. Will you? :P
