As you might remember, mine and Erlist's dog Nikita died a few months ago. We still miss her a lot (well, Triss is trying to make us happy, of course, and I must say she's successful ), so I was very surprised, when I received a wonderful drawing by sarelCmonster

I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art by DamaiMikaz
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already.
