Yayy lots of other people are doing this so I thought why the heck not, especially since this month marks the fourth year I've been on dA.
I joined deviantART in the summer before 7th grade. I was in an art camp and a friend of mine asked me if I had a deviantart, which I didn't even know existed, so of course I didn't. I went home and checked out the site and was basically just blown away by the front page because wowww ART!
For a while I didn't post anything because figuring out how to scan in sketches and make them look nice was a pain and I was satisfied with just checking out the awesome art on the site anyways. When I got a tablet that same summer, I started drawing like crazy. A lot of my first digital things were never really saved so I don't have them anymore to embarrass myself with. Instead you can have my first two deviations:
Ah yes these are masterpieces they should go in a museum somewhere.
(Funny story: Lefts and rights were always kind weird for me so for that Indigo picture I spent like an hour trying to figure out which ear the earring went on. In the end I still got it wrong. Which is why both his ears are pierced now.)
For the following years I proceeded to draw like crazy and post a lot of art of dubious quality. I only drew my original characters, which I had and still have a whole ton of, and I pretty much only drew Indigo. Like now. Wow not a lot has changed in that aspect.
In 2011 I joined my first two RP groups, Rogue Elementals and Toy-Store. I pretty much didn't do anything in either except for the last summer TS was open. The groups did let me get off my butt and test the social waters of dA though, and finally make some friends that I talk to often now.
In late 2011/2012 I decided the anime look was over-rated and tried ditching lines and going for a more realistic and painterly look.
In the following years I joined more RP groups with my online bffs (mainly just Dream-Agency
), made my own (which flopped pretty bad the first time, now MARK-BMG
) and I kept drawing. A lot.
Around late 2012 I decided that it would be cool to draw more cartoon-like which leads into my current style! I'm a very indecisive person haha.
