For hitting 22222 hits over at dA. (Yeah, I'm small, lol)

I finally broke out my FANTASIA colored pencils, and they're rather pretty. :] They're smoother than Prang, so I like them. They're probably not nearly the same as Prismacolor, but whatever, I love them to pieces.
Anyway, more super-cute! Luke. (I don't normally draw things this cute, I'll have you know, LOL)

Lame BG, w/e. I just rather like the shading for his hair. Hehehe.

DAYUM, he's too cute when he's smiling! >.< I absolutely love your style of drawing, I really do. It's so pretty! And his HAIR. o.O Holy cruddermuffins. o.O The coloring's so smooth and pretty! ^^ *steals it for reference*

And what did you say about the coloring?! *shmacks again* Silly, 'tis pretty! I need to inject self-confidence straight into your bloodstream, I swear . . .

Trinity_FireAww, you're so nice~ :3 The hair color was fun, hahaha. It was yellow, then orange, then red, then more yellow on top.
I think this really helps; with the way I lift up my pencil as I make it to the highlighted areas, the coloring's a little grainy, but by going over that again with yellow, it really smoothens it out. And then I erase up a little bit of highlights to really stand out. :]
You should try this, btw. Your art is really good, but the edges of the coloring seem a little stiff. Try working with pressure! You need to keep your colored pencils somewhat sharp, and yes, I know, that's quite a difficult task. But try to learn to lift up your pencil as you come to the highlighted area or whatever to get these strokes that 'taper' to a point. That effect is mostly visible in my picture in the transition from orange to red in Luke's hair. So try it out, and I'm sure it'll make the hair look smoother. :] Well, at least, I like to do it. Hehe. ♥
Thanks for being so nice~ but seriously, you're way better than me in quite a few regards. u_u; I'm going to have to catch up now, haha!
sankyuu sankyuu~ *holds out arm for self-confidence injection* Uh-oh I see a big needle. *_____*!

KingdomHeartSheraMy style of coloring is slightly different then yours. XD I've tried and tried, but I just can't get the same transition from hair color to highlights. I'll do that- I'll give your new tips a try, though. <3 I just have a bad habit of forgetting. ^^;;

Quite a few? I can't think of one way that I'm better then you. XDDD Seriously, you're just too awesome, in more ways then one. <333 XD

Here, I'll bake it into doughnuts and peanutbutter cookies. <3 XD And send Lael-darling over with'em. ^^

The fabric folds are really nice too D=

Congratulations! ^__^
What are you counting as hits? I mean, do they have a counter of how many times people visit your gallery or... Hmm o.o
None the less, YAY =D

Trinity_FireI dunno; dA's is pretty much a pageview system for how many times people stop by your profile. 'Course, any click to your av or name goes to your profile, so you probably get a ton'a more hits than on FAC. Haha.
I've barely started at dA, so I'm actually pretty proud of 2222. Other people have over a mil, though. u_u; I avoid those popular people. LOL

G76*gasps* It seems like every drawing you do, you advance about 50 levels in front of everyone else. Oh probably seems like that because you do advance 50 levels in front of everyone else with each drawing. *gasps again*

Absolutely stunning - beautiful -
