Hi, I'm Vi:

a self-taught and self-doubting artist dwelling in an artistically nonchalant city,
accustomed to being laughed at by artistically nonchalant people for my choice to draw for a living.
Luckily, (or unluckily? Thus is the mystery of life...)
I'm also self-indulgent and self-deluded enough to just keep. on. drawing. anyways.

So here's what I'm about for now:
- Officially started my Deviantart journey on August 2nd, 2015
- On the mission to become more literate one drawing at a time
- Hoping to befriend some charming deviants along the way
- Determined to see this journey through to whatever end

For all its creators, seekers, and lovers,
here's to making more noise, space, and heart for Art.
The drug of my choice. The love of my life.

Thanks for visiting my page, hope you enjoyed your stay, and hope you'll return so that we might one day become friends.

Hello  Vi I want to personally thank you for joining my group I am happy to have you as a member and hope that you will enjoy being a part of this group welcome

Hi Lethal Woman (I believe Lana is your name?),
I'm flattered that you personally invited me to be a part of your group, 
thank you very much :love: 

I am being honest when I say that I marveled at the collection of works you curated for Ornithologists--
the overall quality of work is impressive, 
and there's so much inspiration and beauty to be found in every folder. 
I appreciate the effort, time, and care you put in to managing the group. 
Furthermore, I also respect how vocal and forthright you are about animal protection,
so thank you for that as well. 

Wishing you a lovely day~

I  totally appreciate that awesome comment. I work hard to try to get the best images which is not easy as I am pleased when someone will compliment as praiseworthy as you did so I thank you very much for that Vi. Oh yes animals always first and people second in my world. Again I thank you and may you have a lovely day as well.

I like your watercolors style! I'm trying to self-teach watercolors now. *watches you* ~
thevisualilliterate Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2017   Traditional Artist
Hi Ariella, 

Thank you Dance! 
I think watercolor is a medium that looks deceptively simple, 
but is actually quite difficult to master--
I'm figuring out how to use it proficiently still and not quite sure what my style is. 
Nevertheless, I think it's a very romantic and free flowing medium once you begin to get a hang of it,
and I'm so glad that you are serious about learning how to use watercolors :)
It's so worth it~
I think it's quite cool that you seem to draw influences from both eastern and western art,
and that you try to combine them in creative ways  grin wink 
Happy painting!

Thank you very much for your detailed reply! Yes, I'm serious about learning watercolors and having a great time doing it! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your art and watching your style develop too. And thank you for complimenting my east/west combo style ~ I lived in Japan for four years and actually I'm back in Japan right now visiting! Happy painting to you too! cute bear heart
