So Everyone is doing this and I just feel like I should too??
I was a melodramatic middle schooler in 2006 when I found dA.
Actually, I found it through Neopets, and joined it cause my good friends
had accs in it! They were the first "art & story" group I ever joined, and they're still my good friends to this day.
Had I never joined their group in Neopets, I don't think I would have loved making characters and stories as I do now- Those times at Neopets were what assured me that I wanted to major in Art and continue making art and stories for the rest of my life.
So thank you, you now 7 year old kid infested website that made me feel for pixellated creatures.
But yeah, Deviantart is the longest art website I have stayed on. It's also my wall history- it has things from way back when I was a wee child, and I didn't realize how important it is to me now- all my art milestones can be seen on this account.
Now let's laugh at my old art!! Because that's realy what you're here for, don't lie
This is my first piece, and wow aren't those mountains amazingly rendered out?? dang I was a great 10 year old artist.
I remember being ridiculously proud of this one
HORSE WITH WINGS DESIGN WHAT WAS I THINKING
MY FIRST COMIC COVER EVER... I am cringing.
Ok I still love this one and some day I might remake it
and finally, where I am today:
My pride and joy, a recent work for my portfolio
My webcomic cover, go check it out!
I don't think I'll ever put stuff in storage because I like seeing where I've come from, and I don't think it's a shame to have old art on an account. I would like to show that I was a less skilled artist at some point in my life haha.
Anyways, I raise a glass for the future, godspeed, my artist friends.
Thanks Deviantart, for granting me friendships and a place to put my dragons.
