Your gallery is so gorgeous, wow!
I have always been such a fan of your graphics.
You have such amazing use of stock, it's crazy.
And then you also just have such genius composition.
Your stuff is just so wow and wonderful and I wish I had even a fraction of your talent.
Keep making more stuff so I can keep being in love with everythinggggg.
You're the besttt<3

I'll be honest. Most of the time I come here to see LOTR graphics and other fandoms that you did. It's like you're bffs with Tolkien and Jackson.

Kristina! I have to say that I'm so impressed with all your graphics! Your filtering and coloring are enviable, and your composition is simply fantastic. Your current sig is my favorite, but seriously, you do such a great job with all your graphics. Keep the pretties coming! :D

hey! :)
i don't believe I have ever really expressed just how much your style amazes me and how absolutely gorgeous your graphics are :wub:
YOUR STYLE. i don't even know how to explain it - it's just perfection, every graphic has such amazing technique, gorgeous colouring and mindblowing composition.. how do you do it?? :P
your animation is so good as well, and I'm jealous that you're able to do all the graphic types so well!
i think your banners are especially outstanding, but your chapter images, and blends (actually, everything) are just amazing :wub:
keep updating! :fangirl:

I saw this and died. Not even kidding, the LotR fan in me started fangirling like mad and I have an overwhelming urge to re-watch the while series again now (unfortunately, I don't have 10 hours to spare...)

You style is amazing, your colouring makes me swoon and your style leaves me breathless. I will definatly be a re-occurring stalker here.

I just cannot describe my love. Seriously, I can't. Every single thing, from banners to CI's to Book Covers to Blends to Icons to Signatures, everything is perfect.

So, I just stopped by when I saw your Gandalf signature and your recent 'Remus' CI... and homg, your stuff's amazing. :yes: I seriously love your style - everything is just so pretty. I could stare for hours and hours and still be picking out all the subtleties. So I will definitely be back to stare some more. :P

I'm never going to get over the CI you made me. And I mean, I just pm-ed you, but seriously, I'm going to want you to make all of my stuff now! (But I won't ask you because that would be a lot - but it's the thought that counts!)

I don't think I've ever been prouder to display a CI with my chapter and say, yes, this wonderful fantastic person made this for me!


But other than that CI... everything you do is stunning. YOUR USE OF STOCK!? :drop:


seriously. I think everyone wants to know. <3

Love your gallery, will visit again soon! :)
