Your art seriously RAWEKS!! :3 What would you say is your biggest inspiration?
carnival Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Hrrnrmnmnmnmn~~~~ (Used to be competition :P )
-But these days there are quite a few contribution factors (rather than just one main one)

High on the list would be 'get the work done I've been paid for' ^^;
-As for personal work, tends to be wanting to see an idea realized to paper (either from music, dreams, passing thoughts, colour schemes, gifts for friends who are AMAZINGLY nice to me)

As well as to generally share with others \:3
'Art' has given me so VERY much in the way of making friends through it, meeting rad n nice people.. currently supporting my living expenses~ \|'3 try where I can to give back as much as I can spare! (which I will always feel is never enough~!)
CupcakeMew Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Sounds superbly busy but I bet it's worth it :3 I've graduated from college with a degree in animation last year and STILL having a hard time being employed in graphic design/animation /D Who knows though.. never give up hope!

The pancakes are out for blood! One of them got my knife and cut me. I was able to destroy it in the end but I fear some might have escaped. Beware of them if you smell jam, or sweet tomato sauce for I've heard rumours of them recruiting pizzas to their cause.
Stay strong.
