i am not just here because you gave me one of the *nicest* comments i've ever gotten. i would've stopped by anyway because your talent is just... no words:  :drop:


oh, hi, hello there, icons. those cuts? the composition and the use of color and textures? i die.


this+ casual banner, wherein vee uses textures and composition and frames her graphic in a way that alison could never even fathom whilst making something of her own? no big deal.


this+ banner with loud and bright coloring that doesn't look the least bit garish or out of place, and is in fact unbelievably admirable.


this+ blend where....well, where does her body end? WE WILL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE VEE IS A MAGICIAN. the composition. the center of focus. the controlled chaos. i. dream. of. this.


i could literally go on with everything you have here, but instead i'll just end with this+


what is even happening?? how do you come up with this?? the arms reaching around the circle are terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time! it should be eerie, but you've balanced it with grace and beauty. where did this all come from? what is in your head, woman?! magic, that's what.


xx Alison <3


ps: i can't even start with your digital paintings... xP

Vee, my love, 


I'm going to be honest


you're on my list of my fave top ten gimp staffers on this site


I say this not even knowing if there are ten gimp users who are staff


but I hope so honestly i can only think of three rn so maybe you're in my top three \o/ Either way, honestly people who make graphics like you do whilst using gimp which we all know can be a pain in the butt is just so inspirational to me an I honestly love your style and everything you do. Esp as you're so good with textures and using negative space too like esp in your blends. Your comp skills are amazing and I def think you should just teach me lots because idk how you do it. 

Also YOUR DRAWINGS they're gorgeous I could absolutely never. Honestly the best part is I still remember when you were younger and I first met you many many years ago and you were just starting out and it's so cool to see how far you've come. I'm so pleased, and I love your gallery lots!

cool gallery

i'm especially in love with EVERYTHING

if you would kindly show me how to make blends & digital paint that would make you a double queen (because you already are one)

oh yea and just graphicing in general would be nice because let's be real, one tutorial did not spill all of your secrets :/

nice talk (:

Hi Vee! 


Just wanted to drop by and leave you some gallery love for the holidays. 


I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I've never looked at your gallery before, but now that I'm here, let me just squee about how lovely everything is. 


Your digital paintings are phenomenal! I particularly love the first one because of the beautiful bright coloring on it. The pinks, blues, and yellows balance each other so well. I'm just floored by this. I can't paint in RL to save my life, let alone paint on a computer, so many kudos  to you. 


Your January banner is another favorite of mine. The comp is so cool and I love that you used such an interesting picture of the model. The coloring on it is just brilliant as well. I also love the text comp. 


Wishing you a happy holiday and a new year filled with exciting adventures! :hug:

hi vee, welcome back to tda! i don't think we've met, i'm charlotte (:

tbh i'm ecstatic that you've returned because i've always admired

your work; your style is one of my favorites! i remember reading your

texture use tutorial all the time when i first started out and it was the

most helpful thing ever, and it still is whenever i'm in a rut! +this new

banner is so gorg, really really incredible texture use. +this blend is

so perfect (i loving the abundance of seb stan in here) and +this halsey

painting is one of the most beautiful things i've ever seen. :loves: what do

you eat to churn out such beauties like these omg. share your magic pls *0*

I'm new to the site and have been looking at galleries for inspiration, and just wanted to say how much I love your work, especially your digital drawings! 

I aspire to be able to draw that well, and the use of the colour in the first image is so beautiful  :wub:

@charlotte: this is such a belated reply (oops) but you already know that i think you are wonderful and I adore you :wub: thank you so much for the comment my love <3


@vanna: thank you so much!! If you gave me a pencil and some paper I honestly wouldn't know where to start- I guess I'm just more comfortable with a tablet (and my undo button :P ). I can't wait to see your gallery!

Hiya Vee!


It's so good to see you online! I've been a stalker of your work a looong time ago, and it's great to see you online again, because your graphics are gorgeous!


I love the monochrome vs. colour style that you have going on and your colouring is such a lovely range of vibrant to soft that it's wonderful to see. I especially love this, this, this and how do you digital painting like this?!


Seriously amazing stuff you have :loves: :loves:


Keep it up!
