@Asphodel: I definitely remember your name! It's lovely to see you around again. :hug: I haven't really been around anything HPFF-related for a while, so believe me when I say that it's really good to be back, too. Thank you so much for your kind comments on my graphics! I'm having a lot more fun with Photoshop than I ever did with GIMP. :D I really appreciate you coming and commenting in my gallery! I'll have to come check out yours soon! Have a wonderful day.


@Morgan: First off, a huge congratulations is deserved to you because of your recent promotion! You definitely deserved it. :loves: Thank you for dropping by to come and comment on my own gallery! I appreciate your lovely words. I've heard that from Rohini about the Doctor banner, and I think part of that effect comes from trying to put a touch of light on Ten's face... whoops. But thank you for pointing it out, because I do know that hard-cutting is something I need to work more on. Your crit very welcomed! Hopefully I'll join you in the junior ranks before too long. :) Looking forward to seeing you around the site!

Heyya, there Rachel, i come to your gallery now kay.


Well, i do love the composition of your banner, really i do, how you mastered the focal point with all that flowery background that kinda hard for me to mastered, but you really make the composition so well. Especially the clara one.  Amelia one is also nice because you can make me to look at two focal point at once, but still goes on with the flow. But maybe you could make some more depth in it by using coloring? Like playing around with selective color?


As for the icon cant complaint anything about it, and for your coloring, its really nice, hopefully i  can learn a lot from you


Anyway ciao

Thanks for stopping by, El! ♥ And thank you so much for your lovely comments, too. I'm so glad you like my banners -- that's a pretty new style for me, done for the UC challenge, and I've really been enjoying it! The Amy banner has a lighter coloring than the Clara one, for sure, so it does look a little interesting juxtaposed next to it.


Glad to see you're still hanging around! Looking forward to getting to know you better. :)

Congrats on the promo chick! 
very proud of you, it's awesome to see another stock user with a lot of potential. 

So, it isn't much - but here's a promo present from me to you. 
(I always make them with Judy in, something you'll have to get used to, seeing as I think if you keep on improving there'll be more promos in the future!) 




enjoy your new shade of blue!!!

Hi Rachel!


How have I not stopped by your lovely gallery until now!?  Well I am here now! (Better late than never I suppose).  :D


I love that your gallery has a more simple feel to it and isn't overloaded with graphics. 


Your banners are so lovely! I especially like the negative space one. It is well composed and so brilliant! AND that totally drop dead gorgeous Veritcal Banner!  :drop: WOW!!


I like how sharp your CI's are and your Sigs. I think you do a great job on conveying what your seeing in your mind into your work.


Congratulations on moving up to Junior Artist!! Very VERY well deserved! 


I look forward to seeing what else you create!!

Thank you so much for dropping by, Jenn! :hug: This campaign of commenting you've embarked on is beyond sweet. I think "simple" is the nice word for "is really picky with what graphics stay and what don't," because I'm really conscious of only wanting my very best graphics on display, so I appreciate that. :P Thanks so much for your sweet words! ♥ I hope to see you around often in the coming weeks and months!

Hey Rachel, I'm Ronnie.  :hiwave:  Whenever I see the title of your gallery pop up I have to smile, because The Office just might be about the greatest thing ever. A++++ on that. :P

Also, I love all of your banners; I like the minimalistic look of +this this one, it's just so cool. I also think you work really well with stock though, like in +this and +this. Also, that vertical banner? Gah, it's just so great and well composed, I wish I were brave enough to try making one.  :blush: 

Looking forward to seeing more from you very soon!

Hi Ronnie! Sorry that it took me so long to reply to this. :blush: But thank you for stopping by! The Office is literally one of my favorite things on earth. I can tell we're going to get along just fine. ♥ Thank you for all of your lovely compliments on my banners! I make too many of them. Your own graphics are gorgeous, and I need to stop by your gallery and squee properly. Soon!


Thank you again. ♥ Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to seeing you around!

Hi Rachel! I'm here because I saw your signature in PYLC and it's so gorgeous!! It's been a while since I've been in here and you've definitely improved. A lot! Your stock use seriously amazes me. How are you so good at stock it's basically impossible!!? Your first banner is one of your best I think, though everything is so amazing. I love how you color too! The first 3 banners especially have a beautiful dark mood. I think your specialty is dark coloring! ^_^ I actually really like that 4th banner too. It's cute! Make more graphics like this! :silly: Another one of my favorites would be your first CI. The comp is so unique and I just really love it. I can't wait to see more from you, Rachel! You are truly very very talented. :loves:

Hey, Charlotte! :glomp: Please forgive how shamefully long it took me to respond to your lovely comment here. I'm so glad that you think I've improved since you last stopped by here! Stock is my best friend -- I would so much rather deal with stock any day than textures, because textures honestly scare the crap out of me! I definitely lean toward dark coloring, too, and it's really nice to hear that someone else thinks that the two things I like best about graphic-making are my strong suits. You already know how much I admire you as an artist and enjoy having you as a friend, so to know that you like what I'm doing and think I have talent really means a lot to me!


Thanks for stopping by, lovely! :loves:
