Thanks so much for the comment, Kristina! Your opinion means a lot to me, and I'm so glad you like my teeny gallery so far! :D I'm in search of new styles and ideas and I'd like to go a bit more conceptual, which is a challenge for me, so your encouragement is very much appreciated! :hug:

nO WHOSE IDEA WAS IT FOR ME TO BE SECOND
 
ok so i think you already know, andrea, that i adore your graphics and if you didn't, you know now. seriously though, how does one get that kind of crisp, dark lighting effect without any overcontrast or blur? it's just so unique and wow, dude. your skeleton blend looks so amazing, i swear i scrolled up to look at it like 3 times as i'm writing this. and every single one of your signatures-- i doubt you're actually human. i love the way you deal with simple figures on a simple background and yet it looks so cohesive and complex. and dude, your chapter images are on fleek (hopefully i used that right as i still don't know what it means don't judge).
 
so yeah, you totally deserve to be demoted. because otherwise, this gallery would would definitely be through the roof.

Andreaaaa! I absolutely adore you oh my gosh. Your gallery is stunning and your style has always been so elegant and effortless and I've admired it ever since I joined all those years ago :wub: My favourite is that last sig; the colours are so dark and mysterious. I also love love love the tom hiddleston blend :') the colouring and filtering of everything here is stunning and you really need to share some of your skills because WOW I want to be you.

 

Keep making the pretties, because I can't get enough :loves:

Ahh Andrea, I'm so glad I came to take a look at your new gallery because it's gorgeous! Your style is so unique and I've always admired the feel you give to your graphics, they often remind me of paintings actually, and the way you colour and filter is just so different and amazing!

I love your blends and both your CIs the most, to me they just embody and show off your style perfectly! Keep making more things I'm really excited to see what you're planning to try in the future ^_^

i hope you fill up your baby gallery with more pretties xx

Meena: I messed around with that skeleton blend for so long! I was resizing, moving, adjusting, and so on, so I'm so glad it worked for you! :)

 

VEEEEEEEEEE: :hug: That last sig is so old but I can't bear to take it down! :D I'm glad you like it! :wub:

 

Hannah: Thanks so much! I'm sort of going through a style or focus change, so it'll be interesting to see what happens. Thanks for the kudos!

 

Pooja: That's awesome that my style is recognizable! It's not flashy or anything, so I'm glad it stands out in its own way. More stuff to come

 

Thanks all for the great comments! I wasn't sure whether to start a new gallery, so everything I've seen and heard tells me I made the right choice. :wub:

Andrea!

You've long been an artist here I've admired, and while little things have changed your style has always been so decidedly you. Those hard cuts, the stock and the depth you fit into graphics has and always will blow my mind!

It's been a pleasure to watch your work grow and somehow improve (even though it was always beautiful) and I think it'll continue to do that!!

Happy Christmas,
Shels x

ANDREA  :hug: 

I feel like I don't say this enough (but you should know): you are my favourite human

I love love love you and your graphics, and you're just such a classic artist and you're like, the most grounded and humble person on TDA <33 I love that about you, and I love how your work is always so reflective of that, if that makes sense?? your graphics are so gentle, simple, so so so pretty, and screams of your style. Your blends are gorgeous, your colouring is out of this world, and the filtering and colouring on that hiddles blend just makes me die a little :wub: 

 

You're the bomb.com, and TDA would honestly not be the same without you! <33

 

also would just like to say that I am also a potato chip addict

which I think means we're soul mates

Shels: Thanks so much! I hope you're right! I know I need to experiment more, but it's good to know that what I've got is working. :hug:

 

VEEEEEE: I actually had potato chips today!  :eat:  :eat:  :eat: And wow! Your comments were so sweet and lovely and  :drop: . You're so wonderful, so I'll try to do you proud!  :hearts:

Hi Andrea! 

 

I love love love your gallery, because your style is awesome. I started linking to my favourite graphics, but then I stopped because I was linking to every single one! I love your blends and your cis, really; how do you make such an awkward size to work??? I love how everything is dark and moody, but neat and sharp at the same time. That second blend is literally awesome, and don't get me started on the colouring in the last one! Like we can still see the colour of his eyes?!

 

What I love in your CIs is the fact that you showed both really busy/complex comp (like the first two) and then an apparent (because it sure isn't really) simplicity with a top notch hardcutting; my favourite (if I had to pick one) is the last one, I love the colouring, the discreet white halo, all of it. 

 

Your sigs are a delight of subtle contrast between darkness and colours, I love it! I liked how you gave them a more dynamic feel, if you know what I mean, with less stock and more textures, and front view people. I love how you managed to blend together a soft feeling and a much grainier side on your second sig.

 

What I like in your banners is the fact that they show how well you work with a stock base (your last banner, which colouring is awesome and my fav) but also a much lighter style, like in your first banner, which I also love, and there it is, I've used this verb one time too many (see what your awesomeness does to me?!)

 

So apparently I wrote a novel to tell you how amazing you are and how much I love adore your work, I hope it's okay ^^ 

Catherine

I just came here to drool all over your newest CIs and your current sig. They're absolutely perfect! I love the colouring in your sig, and the way that it encompasses simplicity with the most wonderful depth. The filtering just looks so perfect too. So much clarity, despite it being quite a dark graphic.

Those first two CIs though. Texture use, colour, style - all perfect ♥ also the first one is kind of creepy, but in a good way.

So I came to squee those, and THEN I saw that Sherlock CI. I just adore Benedict YumCumberbatch, and Sherlock, and that CI is perfect. I love the font on that one, and the use of brushes. Gorgeous.

AND your banners. All of them. The third one especially. I love it when the banner reaaally successfully summarizes a story or idea, and you've done that perfectly.

So I'm just going to leave now...

Tooele pip ♥

Hello! 

 

First of all, I really like your style. It's so simple and unique and it's so distinguishable! Your current sig (the snape one) is beautiful! (just like everything else in your gallery.) RIP Alan Rickman. :'(

 

I love your CIs! They're so clean and neat and I really admire your texture use. 

 

I think your blends (every single one of them, I swear) are my favourite things in your gallery! They're so...perfect! The Kit Harrington one makes me drool because of Kit Harrington the colours and I love the Michael Fassbender-ness in here! Oh my goodness, I LOVE Michael Fassbender! xD I just want to keep that first blend forever.  :creepy:

 

The Merlin sig is a;ldkfja'fa;k I LOVE MERLIN TOO! -squeals- I think I'm going to spend too much time drooling in your gallery now.  :loves:
