lol I dunno what to say that hasn't been said already. you will always be an inspiration to the graphics community. everything you touch is flawless, and I wish I had a tenth of your talent. your banners will always be supreme tbh - no one will come close to using stock the way you do. and ugh. I'm so glad you're making things regularly again!! it makes me super happy to see delicious Susan graphics ^_^ but anyway, keep being a goddess and never leave us <3 TDA would be empty without your light :3



p.s. you should make more stuff like [this] because I love bright, eclectic stuff and you manage to do that annoyingly well too :P

Susan! Your gallery is just as I remember it the first time I logged onto TDA and by that I mean that it is still absolute perfection. Your classic, timeless style is what I will always consider the foundation of this site and you deserve featured artist and more! Congratulations (and sorry to be so late)!

To be honest, I'm with Ande -- I've forever been wanting to nominate you to be FA but it was impossible with you as an admin for so long. While it's sad to see your pink (red?) gone, it's amazing to finally see you in gold. :loves: Since I joined in 2006 (and even before that, I'd seen your graphics around) you have been a huge inspiration. And you always will be, even if (God forbid) you quit and left. Your expertise and legendary style, talent, and eye for everything that makes a graphic epic will forever be remembered.

Plus you watch all the right TV shows. Which is a small part of what makes you an awesome person, as well.


You can count on being the person whose gallery I stalk most frequently.  :wub:  :worship:

Congratulations on making FA. Can't think of a person who deserves it more.

Thank you all very much for your comments and compliments!  :wub:  


It's a wonderful treat to be FA, even if I'm not as active around the site as I'd like to be.  It means a lot that people enjoy my graphics!

I feel like a tard for never having commented in here before in all the time I've spent at TDA.  

Hi. Me Char. I make up now for mistake.


Anyway, I feel like spending a lot of time in here and just osmosising your talent (or at least hoping to).

Your coloring, comp, and just your graphics in general are so legendary that there is much I'm sure I can learn at your (internet) knee.

Congrats on getting the Gold (quite belated, but whatev) and I'm so glad you're sticking around, even if you're no longer board staff :)

I wanted to choose a favorite but I couldn't.  Love everything.

I am blown away by your creativity. I just spent so much time staring at each graphic in your gallery, soaking in the detail and story. I will definitely be stalking your gallery often.

You know, I really hate it when school takes me hostage for a month or two and I come back and find out I miss all the important things in life...

Like Susan making A NEW GALLERY. :dance:

You have always been an inspiration to me, and I always come into your gallery to gaze upon your pretties. Your text, comp, coloring, stock and texture skills are all so perfect.

Never ever stop. Not completely sure what TDA would be without artists like you. I also found out you retired in April, and may I just say you were an amazing admin?

Thank you so so very much for all the time and energy you dedicated to TDA. Enjoy the blueish hue!

I kind of always come to your gallery in a state of shock and awe, but I always gain inspiration from your gallery.

Lots of talent you have Susan and I really admire your style and love how you have always done your own thing.

Thanks for just making amazing stuff still after all these years. <3

LOOK WHO'S MAKING GRAPHICS! XD I've been following your work for years, so I remember when you first started (I was pretty much a stalker on PC) and now that Admin isn't consuming too much of your time. The epicness just starts flowing more often! I freaking love every single one of your new stuff, or at least the stuff I consider new. Seriously, you and Alora are my inspirations for banners, signatures and blends. In terms of backgrounds and focusing on literally the tiniest details, from turning curtains into textures, image placement, text placement and image quality. The influence you've had on my graphics is pretty monumental and I'm sure a great deal of others can say the same. Anyways, just felt like saying I'm happy to see your new stuff and keep them coming. :D


Also way to make everyone elses banners seem so basic. ---> :dunced:
