Okay, everyone is doing these and since DeviantART is actually superduper important to me I'll join too!
So where to begin?
I joined DeviantART almost five years ago. Just shortly after I had turned seventeen.
Around that age I developed an interest in dragons bacause I had been playing spyro games a lot. wich led me to searching for dragon pictures on the internet, wich in turn led me to This lovely website, wich I became addicted to almost immediately. Hahaha
And thus I created my own Dragon OC and made my account! yay!
This, was my first submission!
My OC, wich I named after myself ofcourse hahaha I remember being rather proud of it. while still a little underdeveloped at that current stage you can still clearly recognise my character in it. <3
I got serious with drawing and bought a drawing tablet.
Gawd, shortly after that I became a HUGE fan of the comic shaloneSK
made, featuring her own character Zonoya as well as Spyro and Cynder!
I made fanart.....
LOTS OF FANART. I'm not gonna show it, I was a terrible fanderp and i feel ashamed hahaha
At this point in time people began trolling me because my character looked awfully similar to Zonoya. Not that I did that on purpose or anything.. but still...that was not a good time for me at all. It was rather stressfull.
Back at home In real life I was quite..ehm a loner? I did not have too many friends at all so I bacame super happy when I made some awesome friends here on DA!
examples are Cursed-Midna
(Who is now my lovely boyfriend!) as well as many others, but that is a bit to much to sum up! I LOVE ALL MY WATCHERS!!!
You guys pulled me through some tough times and I'm so..so thankfull for that!
DeviantART has truly been a very important for me because of that reason! FRIENDS!!!
And so DeviantART became more and more fun and I kept improvig my art, and kept on making new friends, (and losing some occasionally, sadly enough that happened too.)
After a while I became Inactive though, due to school and such.., still i could never ever leave DeviantART completely. I always checked my messages several times a week. And kept looking at art to keep me inspired.
And I quietly tried to improve myself during the scarce free time I had.
This piece made me realise how much I had improved!
Style changes were made and improvements everywhere!
I'm so happy!
AND THIS ONE, GAWD I'M SO PROUD, It isn't even finished yet but still <3
This one ....for me... symbolises the personal growth DeviantART helps me make.!
Both on a personal emotional level as well as for my art ofcourse!
Currently I'm trying to be more active again. <3
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEVIANTART!!!
