Yeah, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. x3 I thought it would be fun to share my story for anyone to read if they were interested. Mine may not be the most exciting, but oh well.
My journey on Deviantart started on November 27th of 2009. One of my friends at school knew how much I loved art and she was telling me about this great art website that I should check out. After school I came home and made my first account, Oreocookeee. I didn't do much on that account other than post silly journals and favorite other people's artwork. Since I was unable to post artwork I kind of drifted away from the site.
In 2010 my uncle bought me my first tablet for my birthday. It was a Genius MousePen 8x6 and I thought it was the coolest thing ever...Until I spent a total of $90 (which was more than what the tablet it's self was worth) on three replacement pens over the span of a year. After my fourth pen broke I gave up and bought a Bamboo Pen and Touch in the summer of 2011. I don't have any drawings on DA from this time.
Then in December of 2012, after talking to one of my best friends (TF-Chaos
) I made my second account, the one I currently have. So you guys can all thank her because she's the reason I'm on here. xD Now I don't remember what my first upload was on here, but the oldest one in my gallery is this one.
This was uploaded January of 2013 and it was a gift for another one of my good friends from another website. According to my stats on here, January of 2013 was the "busiest" month of all time for me, as 19% of my uploads were posted then, which, is true. After joining I posted anything and everything I drew. Most of them where of my fursona at the time, Selene.
As you can see I wasn't very good at backgrounds, so when I found out I could do night scenes pretty well, that's all I would draw. lol
2013 was a pretty amazing year for me. I thought I was amazing at drawing (haha) and I had made some pretty cool friends along the way. S/O to redrumsociety corviids IceFire88
All those chats on skype and drawing memes were amazing.
As 2013 came to a close and 2014 rolled around I could see a HUGE improvement in my art as I went from that to this. I still can't believe how much I've improved over the span of a year.
This year has also brought even more amazing people into my life Finn87 codaboy11 monochromera
