I loved reading your comments here. More than most of the other improvement memes here in deviantART. :)
I love how you used to draw for fun and still remain to do so (kind of); but you really improved. You worked hard for your art and you seemed to know what was wrong and what you were doing - even if it took quite a while to seriously do it right.
You're a huge inspiration to lots and lots of artists out there, Celesse, including me! Please don't ever stop doing what you do! :)
