My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 3:37 PM


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:

Shades Of Blue 2 By Kimikiwi48-d2yf65x by kimikiwi48    Shades Of Red By Kimikiwi48-d2ycrxn by kimikiwi48
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.

Wait jk those are the better ones look at these instead:

No Such Thing as a Happy Ending by kimikiwi48    June Portrait by kimikiwi48    Scarlet Flames by kimikiwi48


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.

Honda: Ref Sheet by kimikiwi48    DA: Hey what loser by kimikiwi48    MARK: Spring Gardening by kimikiwi48    

In the end this just turned out to be a giant talk about the evolution of my style haha. There are a whole ton of artists that have had lots of impacts on the direction my art has taken and it's probably impossible to list them all. And then there are also the artists whose artwork I just love, even if I choose not to take on their style.
Even though I didn't say it much throughout the journal, deviantART (and tumblr) and their communities have been a huge influence on my art and I'm really glad that such places exists for us artists (: While there are some faults, there are also lots of great opportunities here, from helping to expand my inspiration pool to making friends (lol still working on that) to getting a freAKIN JOB (holy crap man that was a crazy great day for me). Let's all keep on arting!

Edit: lol I just read the actual guidelines from dA for these dA story journals whoops whateverrr

I'm a moody teenager who spends way too much time thinking about art and her characters.

The color blue is the way to my heart. Just saying.
