Well, to be fair, liking your art is how I found you, that's how most artists meet each other on DA unless they know each other from elsewhere. But after seeing your art, doing art trades with you, and trying to support you when you have something to talk about, I consider you one of my close friends here on Deviantart.
Not because I like your artworks, but I mainly care a lot about you. I consider you as an ally and I am here for you, even when you find yourself in some bad situations. I'm here to support you and I'll still be.
Thx, because I really couldn't choose one of those three. I don't like to irritate people on purpose, I don't think I can call you a friend, and that would leave "when make requests for Interest peaple", but that would make me an ahole and I wouldn't ask for RQ if I didn't like your art.
