Ahh! Prettiness! <3 I think your Harry sig is my favorite... if only because he actually has green eyes. XD

Lol, jk. I actually really love your blend. It's so... interesting. I just want to sit here and stare at it for an hour or two. (x [If only I had that kind of time]

Correction: I want to sit here an stare at the whole thing for an hour or two. Everything is so different and unique and crazy-awesome I can't get over it! wub.gif

I wanna see more! So, I'm pretty sure I'll stalk your gallery check back every so often. (:

Hi Val! you're incredible!! jaw-dropping.gif I mean....can I have this?(;

if you don't make a tutorial, I will be very mad glaring.gif

ok no I won't, I lied. I just really wanted to use that emoticon tongue1.gif

your really do have incredible stuff though. all your banners are spot on - even your vertical ones! I think those are much harder. I also love the simple complex that you incorporate into your images.

^perfect song choice

just really great stuff! I can't wait to see what else you come up with in the future!

How have I not commented here before? I feel so bad, Val. Please don't hate me!
But you know I've always been a fan of your graphics. You pull off dark stuff so well in ways I wish I could!
I especially love +this signature and your first two banners (although I hate Katy Perry, haha).
Anyway, I have finally corrected my lack of gallery comment here! And we haven't talked in ages so I am going to your profile to say hello. You better still love meeeeee!

Possibly when of the only times where harry potter looks evil, in a good way. I really, really like the coloring. It's so dark and angsty. Lord Voldemort would be proud of you.
