The beginning of this year has given me more than I could ever wish for. My work is getting so much attention and I'm receiving so many wonderful comments and links to gorgeous artwork that I have the honor to be a part of.
When I joined DA two months ago, I had never expected that it would mark a whole new chapter in my life. I had never expected that people would call me beautiful and use pictures of ME to create the fantasy art that I have always loved. I have never considered being a model and never really liked being in front of the camera, but now I'm actually kind of a model! That sounds so weird to me... And all you wonderful people in here are giving me so many amazing complitments, that I have a constant population of butterflies in my stomach.
Actually, the reason I joined DA in the first place, was to get a chance to show my paintings. But then I discovered the word "stock model" and thought it would be awesome if I could be a part of maybe just a few fantasy works, so I could show them to my children one day, and they could be proud of their mother like I have always been of mine. So I submitted some pictures that my friend and I had taken for fun and now it's all happening so fast that I can't believe it!! My pictures have been used by so many amazingly talented artists, a lot of people watch me and comment my work, I stumble across pictures of myself on the internet once in a while, people are using my face for their profile pictures on DA and Facebook and suddenly I'm going to be on a book cover for this wonderful author: www.beccahamiltonbooks.com/201…
This is all so big that I can't quite grasp it yet. I'm still a bit confused as to how all this happened!
I'm totally high on happiness and my head goes like this all the time:
I just want to give you all my deepest gratitude for your support and this amazing opportunity. You really help me believe in myself.
You guys are truly amazing.
