so, this is my 100th post. for those who aren't aware, this is a redraw of the first ever drawing i posted on this account. i originally tried to post this drawing with an elaborate, sentimental caption, but instagram wasn't having it, so i'm just going to thank the people that inspire me and motivate me to improve both myself and my art constantly. firstly, i'd like to thank all of the fantastic friends i've made through here. @j.claudiio , @emiliedrawings , @cloudy.ink , @blueland.ann , @grauerkosmos , @danideldraw , @art_by_abraham , and so many more. i'm so lucky to know you amazing people, and i hope none of you ever stop creating. you're all so brilliant. next, i'd like to thank some of my inspirations in art who i hold as idols, who include @chloetersigni , @alefvernonart , and @marrowmoody . i constantly refer to your work if i'm desperate for motivation to draw. most importantly, i'd like to thank all forty eight thousand of you, for sticking around whenever it felt like nothing else could. you guys keep me energized, focused, and surprisingly, you also keep me sane. from the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for what you've done for me. and, of course, kudos to @littlebodybigheart herself for being my biggest inspiration and somehow keeping me interested despite only releasing photos every now and then these days. thank you.
