Thank You for Views by lei-melendres Thank You for Views by lei-melendres
Hello Fellow Deviants!

This is just to celebrate my 100,000 views here on DeviantART
and if you were one of those views, this is my most sincere
(well actually, for you and for those who took part) letter.

This celebration meant a lot to me because few years ago. I
used to think achieving this many views with my old
artworks would be nearly impossible or would take a very
long time. I have my deviant account for a few years now
but it only gained around 10k views in 3years.

It was September 2010, when i posted my first doodle
online and it gained 10x more views than my average views
per artwork. Since then, the pages views started to go up in
an increasing rate and that gave me a lot of hopes for
myself as an artist.

The comments I received were really heart-warming and til'
now, the feeling of reading every comment hasn't changed.
I know I will never get tired of reading those comments over
and over again. I am really SORRY for those unreplied
comments on my artworks. God knows how much I want to
reply on each and everyone of them. And to make up for
that, i have decided to reply on every comments posted
directly on my deviant page, or my twitter [link] I know how
others feel when the person they admired so much doesn't
reply to their questions and comments. If only I could thank
each one of you personally, I will. I always find ways to
thank you all for the support you have given me. Your
comments and likes has really kept me going through my
hardships and I really want you all to know that.

I want to inspire people and especially my fellow artists to
strive, never give up in doing what you love the most. I
would tell you my story but it will take to much of your time.
I wish that someday, I'll have my chance of being a speaker
in a seminar that way, i will be able to inspire you more.

I also decided to quit my job as a graphic artist in an
advertising agency to pursue my dreams as an independent
artist so if you have requests(by that, i mean commissioned
works, haha), just let me know. ;-)


THANK YOU AGAIN AND DEFINITELY MORE DOODLES TO COME!


Keep in touch fellaz!

It's amazing what one can do with a marker. These are very well-done and, though simple, really make your talent shine! Amazing job!
