First off, congratulations on being FA! =D

 

I remember when we were MAs together- I admired you then, and I admire you all the more now. It's mind-boggling, how you can make pieces that are so simple yet so sophisticated at the same time! Your animation is amazing, your use of text out of this world, and I wish I could just steal those manipulation skills for myself and gobble them down :sean:(I tried to enter that recent manipulation challenge of yours, but I suck at it :tongue:)

To summarize- you are awesome. :glomp:

 

Edit: New page win! :sean:

Hey Golden.

 

I love your gallery, especially your banners. I just love the composition and the way the nature backgrounds look so real. Like it really looks at though the people are in that environment. :happy: The amount of detail and depth is just breathtaking and all the more beautiful because you use GIMP (I read somewhere that it's like a million times harder than Photoshop!)

Keep up the good work and Congrats on being featured artist, you definitely deserve the honor. :hug:

Hi Karine! I don't think we've met. Just wanted to pop in and say hello. :)

 

I love how subtle your style is. It's not whambaminyourface or anything, but in the best way possible. Your animation is simple but very original and I really enjoy that. Same with your text! Same with your text. Nothing is overly flashy but each graphic has its own distinct mood/feel to it (if that makes sense at all? :blink: ). I'm a fan. :happy:

I absolutely love the use of textures and your natural coloring. Everything looks so simple yet so complex which I adore. I esp. like the second to last banner and the second and third chapter images :wub:

i have loved +this ever since i first saw it. and +this is beautiful also shh it's one of my favourite mumford & sons songs. i've never been able to get used to gimp (which is basically why i'm a photoshop user), but you obviously have some sort of talent that i don't~ +this is so pretty :3

Oh

Hey Karine!

 

Just dropping by to leave you a bit of holiday love on your gallery!

 

First let me say thank you for all you do for the site throughout the year! You're so friendly and approachable and always willing to help, which I really appreciate. :)

 

So oddly enough, this is the first time I've been to your gallery. I'm sorry that I haven't made it here sooner. One thing I noticed right away is how crisp and clear your graphics are. Every single image is filtered and colored so perfectly.

 

Your Small Miracles banner is one of my favorites. It's gorgeous and the image you used is so haunting. The eyes have so much depth to them.

 

I also really like your Doctor Who blend. It's cool how the dalek lights up. :)

 

Wishing you happy holidays and a new year filled with all the wonderful things you deserve! :hug:

i adore the subtle gif use in this+ banner. but more than that, i love the composition, the coloring, the stock use.

this+ banner is so soft and perfectly blended.

and i 110% am in love with this+ bell jar book cover. honest to god, it makes me want to re-read the book ASAP.

your graphics are ah-may-zing.

Hi Karine!

 

What a lovely, soft gallery you have here! It's lovely to see you still managing to find the time to graphic despite staffing duties, so hats off to you for that <3

 

Your style is so distinctive, and gentle, and the animation in this is so dramatic and effective and makes me almost hold my breath in anticipation. :loves:

 

Thank you for everything you do!

GOODNESS your work is amazing!! I'm always hesitant to leave comments as a non-graphics person, but they're so minimal and powerful and I really, REALLY like your use of font. The composition for your chapter images especially is amazing.  Great work!
