It seems like every year, I get at least one mermaid request, hahaa~
My cousin messaged me Monday to draw a mermaid for her nine year old daughter by Wednesday. I was told she was watching an anime with mermaids in it and was upset that there weren’t any in her skin colour, so this is going to be on her birthday cake!
Protip: Representation matters.
Good on you! It’s up to us to get more representation out there, and I’m glad to see you using your talents for such. Also, gorgeous mermaid art~! :D

I know you can do it! Best of luck! Shame I won’t be able to be there this year :( otherwise I’d get you some more cheesecake!
Noooo I was hoping to see you this year! :c I owe you a lot of messages and stuff anyway, though, so I should at least keep in touch with you more often.

/lays on floor, doesn’t move at all
I’d be joining you, but I’m so full of caffeine that I’m twiiiiitching
You're almost as beautiful as your art. Which means the more you improve your art, the hotter you'll be. ART SUCCUBUS/VAMPIRE.
THEY ALL DON’T NEED TO KNOW MY REAL MOTIVATION BEHIND IMPROVING

Shadi, I’ve followed you since the first incarnation of KMAS and the thing I’ve always loved about you is that you do what you wanna do. You don’t do shit to get popular. I see a lot of people do shit just to get reblogs and it shows in their work.
Holy shit, do we really go that far back? Man, KMAS felt like forever ago. But yeah; I never really was one to follow trends, because they never last, and especially these days they change so often. It’s a lot harder to get by doing your own thing, but I feel like people stick around longer because I am consistent. I’ve tried to do work for the sake of popularity and it’s such a chore and honestly not worth my time. I appreciate your reminder as to why I’m doing just fine.
