    You are so amazing at text, in particular. Like, all the time. I hate you.

    Congratulations to everyone!!! Xinyi, Forever Young is an amazing use of text to create a world and hands down my favorite! Also want to shout out to Aureola for such a cool use of text and compostion, and Alexandra for managing to put all that text together in a fun and bold way!

    thanks, i just became inspired by a word (forever young), because sometimes i feel like i wish i could stay young forever, then words just inspired other words and i just put it all down on the piece.

    Ooh, this is another category that should have the awards nominated along with actual pieces they're for. Xinyi, your award design is INCREDIBLE. I saved it even though the award wasn't for me. Your "Forever young" wallpaper was my absolute favorite as well, one of my top ten of the year. I've no idea how to create something like that, truly a piece of art/design in itself. I am so jealous of your typography skills!

    Thank you to all who voted for my piece and got it an actual placement among such brilliant entries! And congrats to all the winners!

    WOWzers! I'm stealing the word...these awards are fraking TEXTACTULAR!!! Might be my faves of the night in overall category. Started commenting on all the ones I liked and ended up listing them all!

    Adding text to a piece is one of the hardest things to do in fanart ever! I swear it takes me the longest to decide what looks good. I'm extremely honored that I got 7th, and thank you Kiera for the lovely design! I actually had a lot of fun with the text on the Ghostfacers wall once I figured out what I was doing, so I'm very proud it won.

    I'd be here for hours if I commented on everyone's fantastic displays of text, so I'm just gonna stick with my Top 5 Shout outs who won over my heart this year: Demetreas, Xinyi, Aureola, SayJay, and Sasha. You guys rocked my world!
