My deviantART Story!

Wow! It's almost been 2 years since I joined deviantART! It's crazy how time just flies by, huh? :giggle:

With deviantART celebrating its 14th Birthday, let's take the time to reflect on what's happened over the years.

Here's my deviantART story:

Discovering dA & Creating my Account:
I discovered dA many, many years ago when I used to search for Digimon fanart at my friend's house! :XD: Due to the fact that I was pretty young and didn't have a computer with an internet connection, I didn't know much about this site nor did I understand what it was all about. Back then, when I read that people used "Photoshop" to create their art, I actually thought that "Photoshop" was some kind of store you could go to for making art!!! *hides face in embarrassment*

I decided to create an account 2 years ago after I was browsing dA for inspiration for my art projects. I though to myself, "Wow, the art here is incredible". And when I realised that this incredible art had been created by many talented artists from all over the world, I instantly decided that I would like to be a part of this and share my art with the world too. So that's why I made my account! :aww: Actually, I think I created it whilst I was at school during a lesson!

Making Friends & Being Inspired:
Within a couple of weeks of joining, I already made many wonderful friends whom I still talk with today. They supported my art and encouraged me to keep working hard at what I love doing. I loved checking here regularly to talk with them, view their beautiful art and read their journals. 

I would just like to take the time to mention some of these wonderful people:
:iconcromarlimo: :iconanzichan: :iconpralinkova-princezna: :iconteddypotts: :iconxiiibeatosensei:

Thank you very much, all of you! :heart:

Of course, I still continue to meet many incredible people here on dA. I would feature you all, but then my journal would never end!!

Growing as an Artist:
One thing that I can definitely say that dA has enabled me to do is grow as an artist. When I look back to the sorts of work I produced before joining and what I create now, I feel I have made a lot of progress. I am aware that I was still young back then, but being able to receive such encouraging comments on my work, along with helpful advice on how to improve, I feel that I have gained the confidence to try new things and ultimately grow as an artist. I cannot explain how valuable it has been to be able to talk with artists and learn from viewing their works. And whilst I know this sounds very cheesy and cliché, if I hadn't joined dA, I don't think I'd be making the art I do today, nor would I be as confident as a person as I am now. 

This is the first ever piece I submitted to dA:

Acer Leaves by xXNami-sanXx

It was something for one of my art projects! :XD:

The three pieces above are examples of my very early digital art. Before joining dA, I had only ever tried to draw and colour something digitally once - and that was on MS Paint with a mouse and only took me a few minutes! :giggle: When I started out working digitally, I didn't really know what I was doing. It was a case of experimenting and learning from my mistakes (NEVER try to draw and colour EVERYTHING on the background layer unless you want to go over the lines), but being able to view tutorials made by kind deviants really helped. A lot! :aww:

Here are the sorts of digital pieces I am able to create now:

I hope that I can continue to grow in confidence as an artist, meet new people and be inspired by the incredible work that is shared here. Thank you, deviantART, and thank you to everyone who has supported me through the years. It really does mean a lot to me. :love:

Here's to the next however many years!!!! :w00t:

:heart:

On another note, I'm going to be slow at replying to messages for a while since I'm going to be busy for the next couple of days.
