So there is a little tangent I went down this holiday; trying to establish a connection with someone I barely touched base with in 2004-2005. I did speak to them some back in the day, meeting on a place called the Chex Quest Talk forums. When I started going to Walters State I forgot about them, but recently I found them and decided to reach back out.
Suffice to say it went well, and I regret not doing it sooner. I could truly say I know what it feels like connecting with someone who you haven’t spoken to in over a decade. As a sort of gift for him, I drew him and Ki’voosh under some mistletoe, as he took a liking to her from my Ellowwood Keepers piece. And what do you know, he loved it.
A little while back, someone I knew on deviantART was having hardware problems. They were getting quite behind on requests and even their personal work, and it was coming to a complete standstill. All because a mouse on their PC wasn’t working.
Since my parents had come back from their store, they had a ton of computer stuff sitting around, including obsolete desktops. I took a spare PS/2 mouse lying around at the time, mailing it across the country to them. Long story short, they were extremely grateful and were able to resume work once again.
In return, they drew Princess Kida, together with Raine Sage and Twilight Princess Zelda. The joke is that Kida lost some sort of bet, and such she has to take on a “kawaii” persona, outfit included. They drummed up the last part but I really enjoyed it.
This is the first time I got thank-you art for anything I had done online, so it was quite thrilling to know I was able to help someone out! You can check out the artist here.
