As we approach the end of BeyArMaMo 2017, I just want to take a little moment to thank you all for once again making October the most enjoyable, Bey-filled month ever. There's been so much awesome art posted over the last few weeks, both here on dA and out in the wider social media world, and it's been a real treat to see it all.
Y'know, I always find that I start October having forgotten just how much I love Beyblade but I always leave if feeling like I love it more. A lot of that is down to you and your own excitement. It really feels like we're a bit of a family here, getting together for a catch up, sharing this thing we love and enjoying talking about it and creating things in honour of it. I probably sound a little silly and sentimental but this event really does move me. And I know from the messages I receive that a lot of you guys feel the same way too. So thank you for sharing your art and your love of Beyblade with me and with all the fans of Beyblade who've been treated to your wonderful art this month.
Here in the UK there's just under four and half hours left before October, and BeyArMaMo, ends. Depending on where you are in the world there may be a little more or a little less time. Some of you might be furiously trying to finish your final piece and some of you might have finished with plenty of time to spare. Whether you've completed your chosen challenge or not, whether you started but couldn't finish, whether you had to scribble some days or leave some drawings unfinished, whether you joined in late or whether you simply cheered participants on, you're all winners. Without question.
All that remains now is for me to let you know that you can feel free to keep on posting your artwork over the next few days/weeks/months. The gallery will remain open until the new year so if you want to collect all your pieces, finish some off or whatever, you've plenty of time to do so. You can post your artwork whenever it's convenient for you so you don't need to worry about that. I look forward to seeing it all!
And so, that's it. Thanks again, m'dears, and I hope you enjoy the remaining hours of BeyArMaMo. And, hopefully, I'll see you next October to do it all again!
