my escape from pluto by mikilana my escape from pluto by mikilana
[ ] and just as he who, with exhausted breath,
having escaped from sea to shore, turns back
to watch the dangerous waters he has quit,
[ ] so did my spirit, still a fugitive,
turn back to look intently at the pass
that never has let any man survive.

; canto i, from "inferno" by dante.

lol yeah I did too. I was so excited that it was featured. And I'll draw something soon. I have like, a whole bunch of art requests piled up at my computer but I don't have my tablet. It's been at school forever and this week is exam week so. That's kinda difficult. Plus I sprained my hand really bad and everything is so hard now. But when all my art I owe is finished I'll submit something spectacular. And dedicate it to you. :)

Wow, I'm.. speachless.
I've come to this piece numerous times in the past. I've considered suggesting it for a DD, but never got around to it-- but hey, I can't complain. You got another DD reguardless.

You.. are an inspiration. I feel the urge to create and be creative when I see your artwork. Truly, you are a diamond in the rough. Keep it up.. keep creating.

Of course! :hug: Your artwork has been motivating me to try out new things, but unfortunately I don't have that great of a computer or programs.. but I'm trying with what I got. I don't comment much due to.. well, the fact I don't really know how to compliment someone the way I want to {I'll have to work on that!}, but I do spend time just observing all the detail you put into what you do. It's amazing, to say the least.
