First yay!


Hi Vanya! Your work is so beautiful, I add practically everything you make to my inspiration folder. :wub:

This is my favourite banner, the colouring and composition and dramione all just make it so perfect :loves:

Your composition on everything is stunning, I just can't even begin to comprehend how you do it. *-*

And your colouring is so... I dunno the word... Deep? xD And full. And just beautiful. :loves:

I love your gallery. I love you. That's sort of weird, sorry. :3

okay second. that's fine with me too :P

I admire your style so much, Vanya! :loves: Every graphic of yours looks dreamlike, or rather

like a fairytale. It seems like there is a story to everything in here, your graphics are so detailed

and, just, wonderful. Your coloring, imo, is the most unique and beautiful there is on this site -

and that's saying something, considering the amounds of great artists here.

Your filtering is so perfect, especially for your style, and your composition - WOW.

Banners, CI's, sigs - you have the most amazing comps, simply beautiful and perfect. :wub:

I really just love your graphics and I'll never know how you do it, especially how you

manage it to give them that magical appearance. :worship:

I'm such a big fan of your work! <3

Well make more explosive beauties! ^_^ I'll be back again!

I really love your colouring style and your composition. You know how to use stock without making things too cluttered, your text compliments your graphics instead of being in the way and you make things look really colourful without making it look overcoloured. One of these days you should really teach me your secrets, haha. Awesome gallery!

@ellie: No, that was not weird at all! Because, I love your style so much and for you to say that

you add me to your inspiration folder is just :edward: - *squees loudly and jumps

around* Awww, thank you and ily for being so kind :glomp:


@Leo: LEO, thank you! You know, you are always so nice to me

, but I always forget to drop by your gallery /islazy/ :tongue:. You love

Thank you for dropping by again! :hug:


@Alishya: will edit haha, thank you! You're so sweet! <3 Cheers for dropping by!


@Enya: Enya commented on my gallery? *hyperventilates from excitement*

EEEEP, thank you for being so lovely and compliment-y (is that a word?...) !


@Aisha: edittt. :glomp: thank you for being so nice! I'm blushing right now :blush:


@Sankavi: Aw, thank you! I'm not that special for you to be in awe :blush: In

fact, if you were to look at my psd, you'd probably be disappointed by the randomness (which

is why I've so much difficulty writing a tutorial despite wanting to

do that for ages! *digresses*) Anyway, thank you! :D


@ Sofia: thankyouthankyouthankyou! You are so kind! *finds the nearest squish-able thing in excitement and squishes*

*kitten leaps away and hisses* *sulks*

@Sama: will edit when you dooo :loves: You are so sweet! Thank you! *bounces* I can't even -- thankyou for the wonderful comment! :hearts:


@Sheryl <3: Ily, you amazing person, you! I remember when we were member artists together too! I do, I do *bounces* and we both entered

that MA challenge together- ermm..the two banner one... whatever :P

Hush! If I could make as brilliant graphics as you, you'd already gone to heaven, beat that, ha! :creepy:

I just don't understand how your colouring exists. Like, seriously, is it from a can? It's just crazy! It's nothing like what there is on tda. Your work is just pure fantasy, unrelenting and gorgeous. One thing I should say is that with your mindblowing colouring, it takes away your composition, as that vibrant colouring you do so well is the focal point. I have to say, your first and last banners and the one with Naomi Watts (i forget numbers;P) are my favourites, and with the first one especially that's to do with your composition, it's just mindblowing, i could talk all night about it :) I think that that's one thing you could do, is tone down colourings where you have interesting compositions.

And I'd say that for the balance in colouring and composition in your sigs are just spot on. I love how you cut off parts of faces or they blend into stock, it's fabulous, I wish I could do work like yours!

Most of the above was just nitpicking so you knew I wasn't just glorifying your work through rose tinted glass. It's awesome, basically. :)

Holy crap, Vanya. This is such an amazing gallery. Your talent makes me want to cry. Seriously. How do you use stock so well and color so perfectly? I don't understand. You must be magic. I want to pick a favorite, but I can't. I just want to hug all of these pretties to death.

Teach me to be awesome. Thanks<3

Wow. I finally meet THE legendary Azimuth.


Hello there, Vanya! :) <<cool name by the way :P


And i must say your gallery definitely lives up to its name. It's so wonderful... Your stock use, colouring, style... EVERYTHING is WONDERFUUUUL.

It's like stumbling upon Wonderland, but even better. You're such an inspiration, honestly. Sometimes i even see your MA graphics circulating around the old squee threads, and even the current ones.


And they're so lovely, even though that was when you first started. I would die in peace if i even had 1 out of 50 of your talent.

Great job with your gallery! :D it's just awesomesauce.
