Thank you for liking my style. I am not a watercolor pro by any means, and have no formal training. What i do is layer colors from light to dark as i go. Hope that helps. =)

Hey there,

I realize you might be super busy and all that, but I was just wondering if you wanted to check out my event?

It's called, "I'm Real, Are You?" and the reason I'm holding it, is because I was recently a victim, among many other Deviants, to someone who had created a fake DeviantArt account with photos they stole from a Facebook. Long story short ~ They hurt a lot of people, and ruined a few lives in the process.

I'd really love it if you take part in the event, and help to bring back faith in people on DA and the internet, and let everyone know that there are people who can be trusted :heart:

Here's some more info! I'm Real, Are You?I came across a photo today that really jumped out at me. And in light of some situations that occurred in my life recently, I imediately decided it just made sense to pass it on and to do the same myself.
This is the photograph by :iconvintageshadow:
I want to do the same as him, and create my own photograph of myself with a hand written sign.
I think it's EXTREMELY important for my watchers to believe in me and who I am, because you guys are my family and my lifeline. Without you all, I would be a very lonely person.
It also pains me that in the current internet society, there are a lot of frauds and fakers, who pose to be people who they are not for multitudes of reasons. I want you all to know that I AM NOT one of those people. I am very much who I say I am and would never misrepresent myself no matter how much I disliked myself.
SO I'm going to create a little event out of this, and I'd really appreciate it if at least some of my watchers decided to take part in i

Thanks so much! :hug:

Gorgeous! <3
