Thank you so much for answering!

I remember that picture by you. It's amazing! <3 I love the intensity of the colours. The dynamism of the whole picture. And those beautiful hands! So pretty! :heart:

 I'M FINALLY WRITING, HOLD MY BEER

Honestly, this year wasn't the best year of art for me (except summer time where I arted like mad)
My favourite from this year must be... 
Whisperer of Night
(it was a tie with Nightbird's Song but I have to choose one and this one speaks to me more because holy gods, I was dreaming for this concept and worked on the character a lot)

For your gallery, I have not one but two favourites which I cannot choose! So I put both
1) Conversations Skills
Good art and characters? Automatic check. Funny dialogues which cracked me up from start? Check. An angel who seemed to not have his morning coffee? Sign me up, even the idea is just amazing and now it's real, gods bless
2) Nice Night
Your details on dresses are mindblowing and colouring is awesome. Bonus points for Kurshan because he's my Magyar sinnamon bun (or more like a Chimney Cake tbh)(Btw, if you even go to Hungary, try one. you'll not be disappointed)

My faves for this year are:
ShinSekai by Yuumei- I love her art since the beginning but this one was just gorgeous with all the masks and background
Fantasy AU- Kenma by CanaryWitch- I'm a Haikyuu! trash and Kenma is my favourite character. I also love everything from this artist (Totally recommend!)They both come together? Perfection
Get up! by valachhim- This artist got into my radar pretty recently but I love her style. This character of hers and her 'horse' concept has it's own charm to it
The Revenant- Oscar 2016- 2016 was the worst year ever and I cannot wait for it to die slowly tomorrow. Only good thing happened? This

Enjoy the art (meanwhile, I'll stalk all the art sent here too) and Happy New Year already everyone! I'm glad to see most of us survived and ready for the next year. Brace yourselves, eat well, drink responsibly and keep rocking :horns:

Ah thanks so much for this! Not only links but also descriptions! Wow! :D
I loved that piece by you. It's already in my faves so I can't fav it again unfortunately! I hope the coming year will be better for you artwise and you have more time to draw! :hug:

Glad you like these two! I think they are amongst my own favourites this year too. Definitely enjoyed drawing the comic! :D (and I'm definitely checking out chimney cake btw)

And what great pieces from other galleries! <3 So awesome!

Happy new year to you too! :D

You are welcome! :hug: I enjoy writing up my feelings on certain pieces :dummy:

That's the plan for 2017. Onwards to more art and a quest for lost muses!
Chimney Cake is delicious, you can even find it in streets in closed glass cases for free try! (At least in Pest part they do show it in glass cases for tourists to try :XD:) Otherwise, it's pretty cheap for a good chunk and a popular street food :) 

Happy New Year :party: :la: :hug:

From your gallery -  it's for you by akitku
You caught autumn feeling very well here, and this national costumes full of details, and female character.. *___* I just love it!~
And I also really like this work, despite it is a commission. I love their quiet smiles so much...
Wish you luck and inspiration for new beautiful and warm artworks in new year)
From my gallery -  Cold Night's End  by faliessDragon
This is my favourite because it's one of the most positive and life-asserting from this year o.o
Aaaand it's time to promote friends, mwheheh!:D

Nice idea! :)

From your gallery I really like this one; the colours are beautiful and the detail in the feather cloaks contrasts wonderfully with the simplicity of the forest setting. Altogether very interesting and pleasing to look at. 

From Sleyf: Memories of Death. She has many more elaborate (and colourful) pieces in her gallery this year but for some reason I really liked this one. It has a great sense of movement, many fascinating details, and is both interesting and delightfully creepy. 

From InkyRose: Is this How it Ends for Us? really struck me with it's vibrant colours, complexity, and wonderful style. 

From HeSerpenty: Silver Prequel has great dramatic composition, pretty colours, and delightful and varied expressions.

From Lear-is-not-amused: Palette Challenge #35 for extreme levels of cuteness! :3 

From AymsterSilver: This portrait of Wilhelm for its great sense of atmosphere, fantastic line-quality and amusing green imp-things.

Anger management by akitku  This one's my favourite by you this year. I love everything about this piece, from their expressions to their clothing to the whole atmosphere. :love:

My own favourite thing: Probably this one - Resistance's Best Pilot by Mutantenfisch  from January, even though I've made quite the progress regarding digital art this year. Gotta give Poe some love. He's the most magnificent pilot ever. And totally not my man-crush... :love:

Me too! :heart: It would be wonderful if Disney made a spin-off movie just for him. But alas, I'm afraid this is wishful thinking.

Hi there! i've only been here a short while so i'm not sure if i have too many favorites from my own, ha. i don't think i can put up the picture, but here is a link to my favorite of yours so far:

akitku.deviantart.com/art/A-cu…

I love dogs, and the history behind the picture (i spent a lot of time last year reading about zoroastrianism)

for others, this:

amazingturtles.deviantart.com/…

darwin is a person i've long been fascinated by, and it's a playful and characterful picture.

I hope it's ok that i commented and that I shared these this way.

I'm so glad you like that one! Yeah, Zoroastrianism and Manicheism are fascinating topics. I wish I knew more...

Thank you for sharing the link! It's a great work! Faved! :D

Ah, thank you so much! :blush: You are so kind! 
But what about your own works? Or somebody else? I kind of meant for this to be a feature of the art that other people are really proud of or that they like in other people's galleries as well! :blushes:

Aha well since this was a poll, I thought I'd get away with picking just one of the options. ;P I have no favourite out of mine. They all suck lol.

It was about 1am over here yesterday and I wanted to share some friends' art as well but I was too damn tired. But now that I have the time…

Yeah, I didn't write it very clearly...:blush:

But thanks for sharing the links! What great works! <3 Faved!

But I don't agree with your assessment of your works at all. Your works are great this year. A shame you don't draw more! My favourite has to be this one: Lithia of Marandy by My-Sword-is-Bigger
It's splendid, the atmosphere, the elusive figure of Ruso in the back, the composition. Love it! <3

I actually did know what you meant, I was just being cheeky.

You'd agree if you saw the images in my head and had to compare them with the images that come out. Also, drawing is tedious and it's pretty thankless labour. Hours and hours get spent on a work that people will only look at for 10 seconds.
Really? Thanks. xD I really don't like the coloured version of this tbh. The uncoloured I'm happy with.
