*Is officially the worst human being and comment-answerer EVER* I'm sorry it has taken me so long to respond to these, you guys! Thank you ALL so very much for stopping by and for leaving such sweet comments and suggestions!
@Hannah - I'm so flattered that you think I'm off to a good start, and your comments about my sigs and CIs just ♥ . Honestly up until recently I thought they were my worst points! Haha, awww, I have to admit that CI was for a challenge, so I was kind of stepping out of my comfort zone there, but I'm glad it paid off and that you liked it so much! ♥ Thank you SO much for the offer, I'll definitely keep that in mind! Thank you again for stopping by and leaving those comments!
@Sis - I don't know whether to flail, scream, cry, run up and hug you, or some combination of the three! I'm BEYOND happy to see you here, too! And yes, I have a gallery, though it's NOTHING compared to yours OMG. When you wrote this comment, you were an MA and now you're all the way up to SENIOR! Like, what?!? That is SO amazing, and I owe you SO MANY congratulations and gallery comments and squishes!
D'awww, thank you!! ♥ I'm happy that you like the 'Fight Song' blend - I've actually been thinking of remaking it/doing another one based off the song, it really has become like my anthem lately. As for your comments about me being strong and you being able to feel my passion... there are just no words. About the color, thank you SO much for the compliments! Actually I think I'm kind of the opposite, I'm afraid of dark colors. Bright colors seem to work better with me, but dark colors.. *shudders* I'm so thrilled that you thought the sig and colorizations are good, and yes, I really do enjoy working with color! ♥
Thank you SO MUCH for all the squee-worthy kind words, and again, I'm thrilled to see you here, too! (And also omg I am SO SORRY for taking so long to respond!)
@Cee - Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments! I'm so happy that you think I have a nice start and good comp! Yes, I'm definitely experimenting a lot more these days, I really REALLY want to get better at this! I'm so thrilled that you like my icons, but hey, don't be so hard on yourself! I've just had a look at your gallery and your icons look AMAZING, especially the blue ones with the bubbles! And awww, I'm glad you think my text is up to par, also! ♥
*Squees* I honestly thought CIs and sigs were my weak point, so I can't tell you how happy it makes me that you think they're gorgeous! And I'm so flattered that you think colorization is my strong point, I really do enjoy working with color!
Thank you so, SO very much! You keep it up, as well, I really look forward to seeing more lovelies in your gallery soon, too! ♥
@Jenn - Eeek!! Thank you for the layout compliment! I'm a bit OCD so things tend to have their own particular place, I'm flailing because you think it looks clean cut and appealing to the eyes!
Thank you so much for the banner comments! I'm really glad that you think the colors are vibrant - as I've mentioned in other responses above this one, I really do love color! ♥
Thank you SO much for the icon crit. You're definitely right, the Mulan icons were a bit flat - they were honestly the FIRST icon set I ever made, which was originally why I had put them in here. By the time I made the Frozen ones, I'd learned and grown quite a bit, so I really do like those much better than the Mulan ones and feel a lot more proud of them, so I definitely agree with your crit and I really appreciate you pointing it out, and I'm so happy that you like the Frozen icons!
Omg, I am LOVING all these signature compliments! I really thought I was rubbish at sigs, but they're what I'm getting complimented on the most, which is awesome! And EEEK!! *Flails* You think I'm a natural at animation?!? *Dies* Thank you SO MUCH!
I am SO pleased that you love the simplicity.. honestly, I feel sometimes that my graphics are a little too simple and wish I could make those complex, breath-taking graphics that the Seniors/Graduates/Staffs make, so it really feels good to hear that, even though my graphics can definitely NOT compare with theirs, they're still enjoyable! ♥ Thank you SO much for all these amazing compliments, you're really making my head swell tonight!
@Amy - First of all, AMEH! I haven't seen you in FOREVER! *Squishes* And now that that's out of the way, on to this absolutely perfect comment! ♥
I'm so happy that you think I'm off to a good start. And omg SO MUCH YES - stock is so intimidating, especially when you go look at the Graduate+ Artist galleries! It's honestly SO much easier for me to use textures, mostly because I'm just afraid of stock, but I know that it's something I need to master if I want to move up in the ranks, so I'm definitely going to take your advice about trying different things! Thank you so much for the suggestion!
GAH, thank you! ♥ I'm so flattered that you think my use of color is great and brings my gallery to life!
You make an excellent point about the white text standing out too much, duly noted and thank you so much for bringing it up! I have been working on taking your advice and choosing colors that are already in the graphic for the text, and I will continue to do so, I really love how it's worked out so far and I can already see a huge difference, so thank you SO much for that advice!
*Squees* Thank you SO much for the animation compliments! I really do enjoy working with animation, although my animated graphics are kind of few and far between because working with animation can be a bit trying at times, lol.
Ugh, you're definitely right, and I think focal points will probably be the death of me, graphic-wise. I have OCD, so in my mind it's all about balance and "there's something on this side so there HAS TO BE something on that side", but it really doesn't work that way in graphic-making sometimes, so I've really got to work on controlling that urge! I've definitely taken your advice to heart and I'm trying to work on creating a focal point, I know I still need some practice though. Maybe taking a peek at a few tutorials or galleries will help! *Crosses fingers* Thank you SO much for this amazing piece of advice, as well! ♥
Aww, I'm so flattered that you like the Amanda Sig! That was something I made for a challenge, and really that challenged pushed me out of my comfort zone and I was quite pleased with how that turned out, so it really makes me feel good to know that you like it, as well! (I think I need to enter challenges that are out of my comfort zone more often! )
Thank you again, SO much, for everything! ♥
@Kenny - Oh my goodness, it definitely HAS been too long! I have missed you, and everyone else too, so much!
Thank you SO much for dropping by, and I can't tell you how it makes me that you think my gallery layout is beautiful!
Ahh, the Louis Weasley banner! I made that for a plunny I've had for a while now, I was trying to make myself get started writing it, lol. As for making the sides of the banner transparent, when you go into Photoshop/Gimp/Your Program of choice, you create a transparent canvas, and then decorate however you want. And, the pieces that you want to be transparent here on TDA, or over on the archives, etc, just leave them blank/transparent in the program. Then, when you're finished with your graphic, save it as a .PNG file. (If you save it as .JPG or something else, the program will insert white there where it was supposed to be transparent). But if you save as a .PNG and then upload it, everything that you left transparent when you created it will be transparent on the page!
I hope this helps, and thank you again SO much for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment! ♥
