Happy Birthday, BookishDelight by Gojira007 Happy Birthday, BookishDelight by Gojira007
Hard to believe, but it's already been three years since I met :iconbookishdelight: online. Since then, she's proven herself, repeatedly, to be a good friend, an extremely talented author, and an inspiration to improve my own skills as an artist. I thus present to her, as a gift, this picture, showing her hard at work at the many wonderful stories she's made. Here's to many more, and to a happy, happy Birthday to her. ^_^

Maaan your skill for this kind of poster-composition remains OUT OF THIS WORLD. I love the flow of all the pages, the way the images almost seem to fit into their own narrative, and the way they contrast the darkr half of the image with Bookish. I love the soft expression on Bookish herself and her calm, relaxed posture. I love how you drew her curls. The whole thing just has an intimate feel that really gives the impression of talent hard at work, and it is amazing.

I do very much love Epic Poster compositions, so thank you as ever for your praise there. <3

And hey, what can I say?  :iconbookishdelight: is a very inspirational person, so it was pretty easy to draw on that 'n' siphon it into creative energy for this pic.  I really wasn't pleased with how the book page pictures scanned, so to hear you feel they came out coherently feels pretty good, likewise that you felt the choice to keep them colorless helped the pic's contrast.  

Thank you so much, as always, for your lovely comment. :hug:

Ironically enough, I would've liked MORE detail, myself, but glad you like. <3

I... um. Well. 

Oh, my, this is humbling. Partially because I was moved to tears by the product itself (saw this yesterday, took me this long to even come up with these few words -- I mean seriously, where does one even begin with something like this?) and partly because I still haven't been able to point out the origins of a full third of the scenes showcased here. (I've written way, waaaaaay too much, haven't I? ^^;) I might ask for a cheat sheet in the near future!

But all that aside: Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you so much, sir. :huggle: It's been an amazing, magical three years with you by my side. Here's to as many more and then some!

Well first off, :hug:.  Lots 'n' lots of :hug:. <3

Anyway!  

SO happy to hear you like it. ^3^  Downright touched to hear its effect on you was apparently so powerful, in fact; it's that very sort of impassioned response I strive for in all my work, so thank you sincerely for showing it here.
As for which pic goes to which story, don't worry too much about having trouble with it; the lines for those pics came out blurrier in the scan (or worse, cut off on occasion), and I wasn't able to color them in like I planned, so the clarity there is perhaps less than I would have liked.  Still, why WAIT for a cheat sheet when I happen to have one right here and ready to go? sta.sh/01htbgwls0cu ;3 <3
But as for writing "too much"?  I say thee nay!  Write more!  Write today!  Write tomorrow!  Write forever!  You're just s'darned good at it, and you always have something fun or important or very often both to say in every story you tell. :heart:

Here's to more and more years indeed, my friend.  You're welcome, you're welcome, you're welcome. :glomp:

Dayum, making all those tinier pictures must have taken a lot of thought and time! The setup is beautiful, stories just flowing, literally, from pencil and paper. Very smooth coloring on hair and body, and I love that scarf and the little twist in it as it falls. I'll be sure to go wish her well, too. :)

Heh...you think THAT'S crazy? If I hadn't run out of time, I would have colored all those little images in. XD
So happy to see you like it, too. The idea of the flowing images has actually been in my head for a while now, and it was very satisfying to finally get it down. Thank you so much. :hug:
