"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude."

With all the amazing poeple here on the art forum, its only a matter of time before you come across a user you want to thank for something. This thread is just for that.
But who would I want to thank? I hear you aske
Well, it could be anyone. But just to give you some Ideas
> Thank a mod for keeping the forums clean,
> Thank the guy who scouted you in the art portal,
> Thank someone for giving feedback on you art,
> Thank someone for hosting a great Collab/Contest,
> Thank someone for the pleasant cooperation (during the doubles for example),
> Thank someone for being a reliable bastard, so that you dont have to be one,
> Thank someone for just making awesome art,
> it could be anything!
But how should I thank them? You squeele.
Do what you do best, make them a Drawing!
But what should I draw? You wondere.
Draw them what ever you want
> Draw a portrait in which you glorify the object of your gratitude
> Draw the reason why you are thanking them
> Draw a cake
> Draw beautifull flowers
> Draw something you know they like
> Entirely up to you
But Im not that great of an artist... You sob
Well, thats all okay, just keep in mind. You are thanking someone. So make your drawing worth your thanks, it doesnt have to be a mona lisa, but at least make the user feel good.

One last thing !
I only want genuine thankfullness! It doesnt matter to me what you want to thank someone for, as long as you are genuinely gratefull for it. So no "thanks for making my life a little bit more miserable."-shit, okay?

It can be anyone, just make sure they will see this thread, so if you want to thank a non-art forum regular, id suggest sending them a link. Of course it is more fun to the rest of us if it is actually someon we know.
If you want to thank your mom for supporting you even if other poeple gave you a hard time about you art, thats fine with me. But well, you might as well just give her the drawing instead of posting it here.

Although there are a lot of people I'd like to thank, I choose XxDaRkReDxX because he was my first friend here and has always encouraged me. Plus, I'm in love with his art.

It's a (extremely) loose interpretation of one of his characters. I kind of tried to get the feel of his art in there, though I don't think I succeeded.

FULL SIZE.

Thank you!

OOoh well done! I think you did an excellent job in matching his style. It is very recognizable.
