2000 Ponkey Watchers?! by AssasinMonkey 2000 Ponkey Watchers?! by AssasinMonkey
So I just realised, when I was streaming today, I actually reached 2000 watchers :O
I was not ready for this! so I made some quick OC sketches that ended up summing up my reaction this moment.

But oh gawd yes, everyone who has watched, or simply just looked at my art even, thank you all. This moment, I never imagined this moment. I'm actually one of those now with not just 4 digits, but starting with the number 2?

Back in January I reached 500, so amazing, then this amazing thing of a Daily Deviation happened in July happened when I almost reached 1000, boosting me right over the 4 digit barrier. And then, this fast, double that number?
*see reaction above*

This is so amazing. Hopefully I'll be able to make it worthwhile while I'm at it.
I'm definitely planning on sticking around, continuing what I've been doing so far, keep rolling as I'm rolling on the floor now.
I'll continue to share, may I be of use even, or especially, when I fall. I'll gladly fall some more if it means anything.

These moments, these landmarks, hit me hard, leaving me without words, realising it's actually... me... who these numbers are about....
it's... sinking in.

Back when I was at 500 watchers:
I still hold closely to the words I made back then.

You're one of the few people who's actual voice fits their OC perfectly. I can totally imagine this reaction.
When do we get to see more of your OC, s/he is so cute!

D'aw thanks, I do want to make him a bit more, I've really been neglecting my personal OC a lot. Especially now the design is starting to grow on me even more and sweet comments like these make me want to make even more! In all kinda of weird funny situations haha.
Might have to do one for Christmas or New Year at the least I think :D
I imaging letting your OC loose in the CAC studio could cause some funny pictures! 

And he would look cute in an Elf-hat/Santa-hat/Sinterklaas-hat 
or is he more like Zwarte Piet?
Congratz, man!
That's very well deserved, for sure.
You keep cranking out really strong pieces, and people know something's good when they see it (generally speaking).
I am personally one of the newer followers, and I'm not planning of going anywhere anytime soon.

I actually found the Scootadragon a while back, then forgot what your name was until someone else I watch put you in an 'honorable mentions' journal.

And thus came the day where not even the mighty Ponkey could deny himself becoming famous, DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN.

Congratulations! :glomp: It's great to see you get so far with your art! :)  I haven't been watching you long, but in the time I have,it has been a treat watching you grow at as an artist. Not only that, but you have also helped me get through my digital art block indirectly, so I thank you for that. Again, congratulations for watchers well earned. :clap:
