Um, I was going to keep this off of DA (I've already talked about it on other more private sites I visit), but I wanted to share this before I disappear for several months without updates.

So, as the title says, my mom has breast cancer. It was a very sudden chunk of news I have not taken easily (I doubt anyone would). I was reassured a day or so afterward that medical treatment was more advanced nowadays and that she would be fine (thank you to those who have said that, it really helped :heart: ).

Now, I want to ask my friends here at DA to help me with a project I want to do for my mom to help her through her treatment.

I would like everyone to draw a tiger. My mom told me that her totem is a tiger. She tells me it's what gives her strength and hope.

Any type of tiger drawings will do; realistic, cartoony, anthro, whatever style you'd like. I would love to compile an unofficial (not published) artbook of tigers for my mom to help her through this. Please make sure you have your DA username somewhere on your piece of art so I can give credit to the person who drew the picture.

Also, everyone who contributes will be getting a piece of artwork from me (anything you'd like, as long as it falls under my guidelines) and possibly a one-month subscription to DA* (if the lowest is three months, I will even do that).

Please let me know if you're interested. The deadline is APRIL 30TH, and I will be showing off all submissions on my journal.

Thank you to anyone who participates in this. It will mean so much to my mom that people care. :)

* This is not a final decision, but will be announced if I am able to give out subscriptions to those who participate. Please stay tuned if you wish to know more!

Sorry to here the news but I'm sure your mom will be fine and from the news I've been hearing abour healthcare in the US it is on the up so that's good right.

If you want a tiger drawing I have one on my gallery if you wonnna take a look or do you want me to draw a completely new one?

Sure, Tiki, I'll participate. You don't have to do anything in return, I just want to help. c:

Praying for the best for your mum, one of my mum's friends recently got the all clear on her breast cancer, so hopefully it can be the same for her :heart:

I will draw a tiger for you, but I want nothing in return.

Again, I'm so sorry that you and your family have to go through this.

I'd be happy to contribute to the tiger project!

Damn... I'm really sorry to hear about this. Hopefully the treatment will be taken care of as soon as possible.

If anything I should plan out something for the drawing when I get the time..

I'll send my prayers though.

I hope she feels better soon. I will try to pick up my pencil again, but I don't want anything back for it if I do haha. You worry about your mom and not repaying people, alright?
