I really should have posted here by now o.O.

Anyway, I think my favorite things in your gallery are your signatures. They're all so busy but in the best way ever and you utilize so much to make them. They're so complex and beautiful. Of course, everything else is too, and your coloring is amazing. Keep up the good work!



praise be to enya!

Vany! What I love so much about your gallery is the huge variety of styles and color schemes and subjects and graphic types and everything else. You make so much and so beautifully, and I think you should be commended for your ability to consistently and so successfully transform your work. Awesome gallery, as always! :)

Happy valentines day!
Here's some spread the love crit from me to you!
Firstly because its crit, it means I have to say something constructive
so it will be very nitpicky because your work is so gorgeous!

My favourites of yours have to be your sigs and banners.
Their composition of your banners and use of stock is just amazing (and I love the angels)
The blending is seamless as well, so how you do it I have noooo idea but you've got to share the talent!!
Your sigs have a great mix of textures and stocks with them and the colouring on every sig is to die for!
As for the icons I could only dream to make them like you can. The same goes for your blends, I'm lost for words O_O
Finally your CI's you should definitely make more because the ones you have are so pretty I just have to see more.

If I have to give crit....
Maybe experiment with more B&W and mono colouring?
Then with a few of your icons, banners and sigs the people on them are a bit oversharpened and over saturated
so it might be something you want to watch out for.

wow, so three months later I'm actually replying to people! I'm terrible at keeping up with my gallery lately *hides*

Hayley jade - I put too many stuff that's why they look so busy lol I keep adding and adding til they look somewhat half decent xD Signatures are currently my fave thing to make too, so it's really nice to receive some positive feedback ^_^ thank you hun <3

Althea- Oh, i actually think I ran out of ideas and inspiring stuff :/ I've made so little in the past 4 months!! I'm glad you like whatever I make, it's good to know people like them even when I dont hehe xD

!revolt - thank you, so glad you like my gallery... there's not much new in here but I'll try to keep updating :P

killer queen - Oh, I love constructive criticism, it's always amazing to know what one can do to improve their graphics :) I agree, I tend to oversharpen and oversaturate... I'm addicted to coloring and filtering hehe! I'll try to restrain my addiction more often lol xD Thank you so much for the amazing comment :)

updated with 2 signatures and 2 banners in the last 3 or 4 months... jeez!!

I am terrible at keeping up with my gallery lately, I truly apologise for that! Seems like my muse is finally back (oh no, I hear some of you say :P) so I should update more often!!

ScareyKerri- aww thank you! Comments like yours are actually really inspiring and motivate me to keep going ^_^ I'm really glad you like what you see and hopefully the new addictions are still my old style hehe :P

nouvelle - Ha, I'm actually really rusty right now after not using photoshop in a regular basis... I think i've made 10 graphics the entire year lol I will try my hardest though to avoid those ugly graphics that usually make me cringe and feel like deleting my whole gallery lol Thank you for the super awesome comment, I really need to stop by your gallery sometime soon ^_^

Your work is so versatile but you still have such a unique style.

God, everything is so pretty.

If there's a profession to be had in graphic making, you should go for that! :D

Modthryth- I don't know if they are exactly pretties as I'm extremely rusty after nearly one year without opening photoshop, but thank you for the confidence in me :P 


mariposa- Thank you Tany ^_^ I'll try and stay active from now on to dust off my rustiness and keep up with all the new talent around here :)
