Ao No Exorcist by tesorone is a splendid work showcasing amazing use of contrasts and colors. The diversity of the colors uses, cool beside warm, creates a unique atmosphere and feeling to the whole piece. The shadowing and lighting showcase the seriousness of the character's expression while clearly displaying the fun that tesorone had creating this amazing fanart!
iLantiis, "I am so thankful for my sister and soulmate, laurenlorenz, who makes me laugh and smile day and night! I beg for kind thoughts and prayer for her while she battles lung cancer. A great mom, great sister and great friend, she deserves a long and healthy life to smile and help create more smiles!"

xiaolin-kirby-fan, "I'm thankful for my Fianceť, wolfie-bam because he always manages to inspire me when I talk to him and he has helped me with so many things in the time I've known him. I wish that things would start running smoothly for him in life and hope that his move goes well. I'm grateful to my entire family who have helped me to stay on my feet, picked me up when I was down and have been very supportive of me while I was moving up to Hastings for my foundation course, even if they couldn't physically be there to help me with it at the time. I'm glad that I have such great friends that have always cheered me up when I needed it most, before they even knew I'd been upset. They've been a great inspiration and truly helped me to get where I needed to be, especially Claire who often stopped me from getting distracted by doodles and websites and idiots in my class when I was falling behind. And to a lesser extent, thank goodness they put a mute/ pause option on the little advertisements that pop up on the internet, because I'm sick of them making me jump XD"
namenotrequired, "I'm thankful for Gwendolyn12 for all the happiness and support we can give each other I'm also thankful for the current and retired staff of dA (if you need one name, let's just say, +about or stafflist ) because without the home I have here, I wouldn't have most of the best things in my life; my girlfriend, many other great friends, my current career (inspired by dA) and many of the things that make my personality now, like my passion for helping people, my appreciation of many kinds of art and the inspiration to travel and meet people "

CyphonFiction, "I'm thankful for Nepholim because she's stuck by me no matter what the situation. She's also always nice and polite, I've never seen her raise her voice or act hateful towards anyone. I wish the world had more people like her. "
TinyFurrTails, "I'm thankful to three of my bestest friends! lilYumi-chan has been my collaborative partner for the longest time and everything we do together is FUN! she's one of the girls who will always stand by you and won't laugh when you're screaming out random colors when she's trying to draw VividFlow vivi is my silly buddy, she's my pin up partner, and my absolute most hilarious gal pal. I could never have as much fun drawing ridiculous doodles if she wasn't there making hilarious comments along the way, plus, nobody else will stand that much playful teasing! xineli is one of the coolest cats i know, something about her makes me laugh and she's a super supportive girl that opened up the chibi wonderland just enough to allow a furry to slip into the spotlight with her plus, she's always there to encourage u with a little present if you're not feeling well."
Sagistar, "I'm thankful for deviantART because this is the place where I share my art, meet many artists, made lots of nice foreign friends, catch art ideas and all of the stuff that made life one step better. Also, I'm thankful that I met Zim-Lovaa, I met her in real life until I found out that she's also on deviantART. We chatted, we had fun, we did lots of stuff together and became best friends even if we just met about 4 months ago. Because of deviantART, we became connected. She is the one I can open up my feelings to, ask for advice and I did the same for her because she deserves it. Not only that she's nice and is fun to talk to, she has really great art which makes people laugh, smile and inspired. I'm thankful I have met her, one of my true friends."
AmyNChan, "I'm thankful that on deviantart I found people like me who don't mind being random and fun~! and I'm also thankful for the fact that they don't mind when I go off on my religious moods. I love deviantart and I am so thankful I can express myself truthfully here~! *^_^* THANK YOU DA!!!! *^_^*"

I would like to thank my sister, ~Airglass, not only is she an amazing person that helps me through my daily life, but she also inspires me to do many of the drawings that I do and gives me a lot of motivation. Thank you!
I'd like to nominate my dear friend *lapaa for a feature, because she's just the most amazing girl you could ever meet. Lapaa is very smart, kind, and has a way with words. She's also got her heart in the right place. She's currently taking all commissions she gets and pouring them into two projects. One is a tablet teaching class at her school where she is informing her fellow artists about using tablets and digital art. Informing that even though people use a computer to draw, it's still art. The other is an art book which she is making and donating all the proceeds to Randall Children's Hospital Foundation of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, where her little sister was treated for leukemia. I simply want to help lapaa's art book sell well. [link] Many amazing artists signed up to be apart of it ^^
My most amazing friend ~16Jasmine16! She is always so amazing and kind and I love her. She's always there for me when I need her the most and she can always make me smile and laugh! Whenever I see her I can't help but smile because she's always giving me something to smile about. Thank you so much Jassy!
This year I'm thankful my boyfriend is strong and healthy. He has crohn's disease and has had it since he was 10. He's been fighting it since then and this last year we finally got it under control. But then it seemed to quickly fail, or so we thought. He apparently got gastritis and was in TONS of pain for at least three months. We thought it was his crohn's again, thinking his medicine wasn't working and he'd be suffering again while we found a new medicine. It was agonizing to watch him be in so much pain and be unable to do anything for him. I'm thankful it wasn't his crohn's and that he's now all better.
I want to thank of my friends who inspired me to start drawing, especially this girl over here ~PaperSkink505 because she is not only an amazing artist but also one of the kindest person I've ever met.
