A phrase often spoken by Muslims before undertaking a task. It translates to: "In the name of Allah (God), the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful"
If you're just here randomly, welcome! I hope you like what you see! I'm still a learning artist so my stuff isn't very flashy, but I have so much fun drawing (when I find the time) and I'm striving to improve. It's mostly just fan art at the moment while I get more practice - when I do get around to drawing my own characters I want to make sure they look good.
If you're here because I've just spammed you with a bunch of faves and comments, I apologize! Chances are I've already added you to my watch list if I've faved most of your gallery already, but if I haven't it might just mean I found a few things in your gallery or profile I personally disagreed with or didn't like, or just that I only liked those particular deviations that I faved.
On the other hand if all those faves/comments made you happy, you're very welcome! >///<
Whenever someone leaves me comments, replies to my own comments, faves my art, watches me or gives me a llama badge - even for no reason - it makes me curious about that person. So I'll always go to check out that person's gallery to see what kind of artist or person they are. If I've visited your gallery, most likely I've looked at most of your art - and if you're an amazing artist or just a friendly-seeming person I couldn't help but comment on most of your deviations. This isn't just me dishing out random meaningless compliments every time someone pays me a little attention though - rest assured I only leave comments when something has genuinely caught my eye and I have something to say or if I want to let the person know I've looked at a particular thing I liked. >_<
Because I'm an amateur I love to look at other people's art in order to learn from them. I'll often scroll through the newest deviations and leave comments on things that have caught my eye (or favorite those I especially liked). When I love a majority of a person's gallery and feel like I would love to see more I'll watch them. However, if I added you to my Watch list, please don't feel obligated to Watch me back unless you genuinely liked my art and/or would like to get to know me better.
Also, you don't have to feel afraid to thank me for llama badges or comments or faves - I know lots of deviants don't like that, but even a "Thank you" makes me happy to see. It lets me know the artist actually cares that I looked at and liked their art, and seeing how happy this makes some of them makes me happy.
To My Watchers:
You don't know how much it means to me that you've put me on your Watch list! It's alright if you're not an active Watcher who leaves comments or favorites every single time I submit something. It's enough for me knowing that you've at least looked at my page.
I used to draw all the time as a kid, and in high school I even drew a series of comics with stick figures for awhile. Since around 10th grade up until this year (my last in university) I haven't drawn much of anything, and my skills have kind of frozen - I'm pretty sure my drawing style is still the same as it was when I was ten. Recently though I found the passion to get back into it again, and rather than lamenting my lack of talent I've learned to appreciate the style I have. And actually, it's been super fun! So now I just want to share what I've done with the world and see what happens!

Of course there's a lot more cartoons I've seen and love but these are the ones I consider the best. Also I dropped Supernatural at season 7.
