I just caught up reading the more than 700(!!!) messages you left me at my last journal and I'm pretty much left speechless.
I initially posted the message to give some clarity to the fact that I'm offline for days sometimes, and that it takes me a while to read my messages (as if it doesn't take time already, considering the amount of messages I receive). Since it's the internet, I didn't actually expect people to care. Let alone; so many people.

Apparently people send messages for me to DAcompliments, or even made journals to show their support to me.
Which is really kind, but it also surprises me. Don't get me wrong. I'm more or less used to getting tagged. Mostly for my journals. Occasionally even for my art -- but it seems like my writing is better anyway. But never for me personally. And to be honest, that isn't the kind of thing you'd expect of DeviantArt, where art is valued above the artist (and imo, that isn't a bad thing).

Dacompliments by DamaiMikaz

It's more or less the first time that I see people care about the artist, rather than the artist just being an often anonymous person who just posts stuff here.
And call me one heck of an emotional woman, but that kind of touched me.
I didn't expect DeviantArt to be so much of a community.

As for me. My health is pretty much in the same (awful) shape.
I'm still waiting for a letter from the hospital to be accepted for therapy.
I've got relatively good days, on which I'm "just tired". And I've got really bad days, on which the migraine pretty much forces me to spend all day in bed. 
I'm actively working on keeping stress out of my life as much as possible. Which includes working less hours, which gives me some time to actually sleep and do something other than just working and feeling tired. And which also includes spending less time behind a computer, since computer monitors pretty much strain the eyes anyway. Unfortunately this goes for digital art as well, as making it means spending a lot of time in front of a computer (which is bad for migraines). It doesn't keep me from making traditional art, however, which I enjoy a lot. 

What also surprised me is the amount of people that actually care of my characters and/or my Emion project;
I've had many people asking me questions about the project, or about the little descriptions that come with most of my drawings. 
To explain shortly; those descriptions are part of a novel being written by me. Because the Emion project is actually a novel being written by me, in my native language. The art part came later, as I gradually learned how to draw, and I wanted to give shape to the many characters of the story. To those being interested in the characters; I'm working on something like character sheets. And I've concepts for at least translating bits and pieces of the story to short-comics (making the entire story into a comic is not doable due to the excessive story length). But needless to say; the current situation that I'm in is not speeding up the process. 

While I did already know there were people interested in my project, a recent search for my username (yes, morbid curiosity) surprisingly lead me to a lot of people that made actual fanart of my characters (but who forgot to tag me somehow). I guess it was that moment when I really realized that there actually are a lot of people that care. Either about me, or about what I'm doing. And that completely silenced me.

So here I am, featuring some of the fanart people made for me and my project....

I would like to know if Emion would be translated in english! I am in a country where it is hard to get something like books and all, but tell me anyway if there is a way for us to have the book if english version was available

I'm currently still writing it in Dutch... and it's not even finished yet.
And after that, it still needs to be translated. So I'm sorry to disappoint you... but I won't expect it any soon.

Hello again, DamaiMikaz! Sorry it's taken me a while to get back you. I would like to thank you for featuring my tribute art in your Journal! Sometimes when I haven't drawn anything in a while, I go around DA looking for inspiration. Your art and personality made me want to do something small to show you that, even thou I don't know you personally, an artist's work can effect people in a positive way. 

It was so much fun drawing your character. I learned a lot about DA Muro, which I love, and a lot about you. 

I hope you find success with your project, 'Emion'. I hope you get the treatment you deserve soon. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. I support you.

Artist put part of his/her soul into their creation.
so... I think when ppl love your art, they love a part of you.

Oh my god, my art has been mentioned by the great DamaiMikaz! :la:
Nah, seriously.
I hope you get better soon. Take all the time you need, your health and well-being is more important than the internet. But it might be good for you to know, that back in dA there are a bunch of people who love to see your art, your journals, your polls and on the very top of that: yourself. You are one of the very few more famous artists, who interact with their watchers personally, which is wonderful. It must be though work, but be sure to know that what you manage to do is impressive.

On a side note, I would love to read that novel. I might even be able to understand it, since my mother tongue is similar to yours... well, let's see. :D
