2012 Comic-Con panel by yuumei 2012 Comic-Con panel by yuumei

I am back from Comic-Con!!! :D A giant thanks to dA for inviting me to present the panels :hug:

I know a lot of people couldn't make it simply because of the distance, cost, and the fact that tickets sold out a long time ago so here is all the slides that I presented at my panel :)

Up next! I will be making a 3D background tutorial :D expect to see it in the next few days or sooner~

Your art is really amazing tho Hug

I see loads of potential of your art becoming something great! :heart: Are you on Instagram? Because as far as exposure for your work, Instagram is a superior platform to deviantArt. I my (and many onther's) opinion it's become a better art platform in general, than deviantArt..
AnnRosalyn Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2017
Thank you so much. :) Actually I do have an instagram account. It's @annsnowfrost where I usually post my traditional art instead.

Thank you. I've followed you on and off for years and this is the first time that I've read this and, as others have said, it is incredibly helpful and inspiring. It helped me formed ideas on how to incorporate all of the things that I want to do in life together and hopefully I'll be able to make it happen with some hard work. Again, thank you for that.

Every time I think what I do is not enough, I come here and read this over and over again. I'm 16 and when I show any draw for my family, they just ignore it, so I WANT to grow up and show what I got for the world and You always help. Thanks <33

This world would be a sad place without you Yuumei, you've served as my inspiration as long as I could possibly remember. You inspire others to reach their dreams even though it seems like a fantasy. Sadly I'm being sent off to med school ;n; And once I get sucked into the medical field, I'll be too busy to enjoy art...probably never touching my tablet again. But for the last year of my freedom, I'm glad I had such a wonderful inspiration that continues to share her love and talents with the world around her.

The "I want to inspire as others have inspired me" part made me cry.

It's exactly the same thing that I want to accomplish (though I have to practice a lot more in future). And you, already accoplished that. Probably not everyone gets inspired by you. But I am ^^

I need to read this every time I feel like there's no hope, this makes me really happy and get me to know that there are always really nice people on dA. Make me feel more motivated too :D

This makes me happy.~
ipanaju Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014
Love how people make it on dA :--)

Still, the reality's very different...I think some people make it because they have visions and real talent (like you have) but there's also some people who become 'famous' all because of luck, and the people who actually have talent stay unknown. Really harsh to say it like that, but I've noticed a lot of this lately....

I've been on dA since I was 12 (now I'm turning 18) and I have still stayed unknown. Maybe because I lack of talent, or I haven't found the right concept yet. Sometimes I just feel like giving up....I would love to become a comic artist, but I feel like nowadays if you even want to get yourself a publisher, you have to be already known in the internet or something....: D

I truly love your art work so much and the stories you share! I hope to inspire my artist friend and encourage her to put more of her art work out there and be less afraid. I dont know, it may be weird, but if you are willing to give her a shout she could use it! She's a super awesome person but can be shy and very insecure about her art and I want her to make some more friends in the art community who can help her and just be encouraging to her as artists themselves = ) Just let me know if you are.

And Even if you don't, this was awesome to read and I am going to show her this tomorrow! = ) Thank u soooo much for sharing this.

I'm moved by your spirit for your life journey especially on keeping your talent...sometimes I feel somekind of upset with my art because it's not improving,but when I look at this posting....I realized we need to be PATIENT...well..thankyou very much! QwQ
Tsamato Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Being an artist has been a big dream of mine for a while, and you're one of my biggest inspirations. Your art always inspires me to keep moving forward with mine, you know? Thank you ^-^
Nyxxia Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've basically given up on drawing, but you are immensely inspiring me to draw more. Seriously. One day, I would love to become an amazing person like you.

Oh my Waaaah! (cries of happiness)  I'M FEEL SO DIFFERENT NOW... I'm really glad you made this! (Although comment this may not seem like much) This really inspired me and set me on the right path. :D

I really want to compare your 13 year old drawing of yugi to mine now.
NoranB Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh my gosh, you are such an inspiration for me. Being an artist is not my dream, and I don't plan on taking it further, but it's so great how you've achieved your dreams despite your parents' disagreement. I love your works and how they convey so much emotion.. you're just awesome, period.

So inspiring. Thank you very much.
Slipmaskin Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is very good advice. I bet many already knew that to get noticed one can only just keep drawing and get better, but it's still good to hear it from someone who inspires you like this.
You are a great inspiration for me. You make me want to continue improve and move forward, even though it feels tough and hopeless sometimes.

M-F-Munoz Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello! This is very helpful and it's obvious this took you a lot of time. I, myself, cannot attend your gatherings because of the distance, and the cost (and the visa). But, even if this account of mine is a new one, I've been in DA for quite some time, and you're a true reference. It's always nice to read your opinions about Art, as well as your stories... I thank you for showing us a bit more about yourself. It is, indeed, very helpful.

Akyll Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Thank you.
After reading all off your word, I got little more inspired to actually begin to draw again after 5, maybe 6 years with art block.
I have been a big fan of yours for ages, and I remember when you posted 1000 word. I can't relate to that story, but I cried like a river. Because you put so much feeling in all of your creations that touch people deep down.
Keep up the good work!
Kewarii Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
At the first look, I was like : oh my gosh so much text I'm too lazy to read this...
but then I started and I'm happy I read everything :) it's great to see, that even someone like you, who is now famouse and successfull , started like everyone on DA, as a 12-year-old jerk :D
your text cheers me on to practice more, so eventually I maybe will become a great artist, too :)
I have to say, thank you and I'm looking forward to see more of your great art :3

spring-sky Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Didn't finish reading this ,but I reached a point where I have to comment and ask :

Your 16-years-old drawings are way better than mine ,I'm 28 ,and to be honest ,I only started drawing anime style about 5 or 6 years ago . When I see talented young artists like you ,I can't prevent myself from thinking , Am I too late to improve ?

I don't intend to use art as a profession ,I'm already a dentist ,I just want to learn how to draw the things like I see them in my head . I keep feel that my talent is failing me ,and start to question if I have wasted my life and maybe I should have practiced drawing more sooner .

Do you have any advice that can help me ?
