Oh lordy where to start?
Ok, basically I started back on this little colorful site called BaltoSource in 2007. It use to be my main hub for art work. As time went on though, many of the artists that I grew to love left the site for other art sites of better quality. An old friend of mine suggested that I expand myself to other websites like FurAffinity and DeviantArt. Back then I was against it strongly, I dunno why I just didn't like either sites, but soon I caved and got an FA account, then before I knew it, I had a DeviantArt account. |D
The first ever picture I had on here was this Gir picture back in 2010
Haha, this was back when I use to use a cheap program called PhotoExplosion and I drew with a mouse. |D At first, all I ever did was a bunch of fan art and some original character pictures here and there... it seemed like it took me forever to get out of my Fan Art/ Balto Art drawing phase. Slowly I began to deviate from doing fan art, seeing that it would be better to focus on my own personal art work and maybe even try to take point commissions for it.
first point commission ever!
As time went on, I began to expand my art work as well as expand the number of people who followed me. I started off from just having a few people watching me to currently having 487 watchers. Which is a shocker really, to think that somehow 487 people actually like my art work. It's a blessing all in itself.
Watchers aren't the only reason though I continue doing what I do. In the fall of 2013 I started my first semester of college. I'm currently majoring in Graphics Animation. I'm really glad that I did go into it because the classes opened up my eyes to the art world. Before, the only knowledge and skills that I had were only what I had taught myself. I had never really read or studied different art forms, artists, and ect. Hell, I didn't even know what the principles of art were! And I was certainly more than happy to share some of the stuff I did at school with my watchers and friends on here
The drawback with college, was that I wasn't able to dish out as much art as I normally did. That still didn't deter me. Even if I wasn't able to be on DA as much as I wanted, I still found time to check up on friends, artists that I watched, and made time to fave art that caught my interest.
Currently, i'm going into my second year of college and I am still actively apart of the Deviant Art community. I am ever so grateful to all my friends, online family and watchers for their support and love. As such, I hope to continue on and create more art, more compositions and expand my gallery. <3
So that's about it for my DA story haha
I would like to give some thanks to , , , , and for being some of the best friends/ people that I know You guys all rock and I dunno where i'd be especially without all of your support and inspiring art works. You guys continue with what you are doing! <3
I would also like to thank all my art idols and inspirations for creating awesome art and for being great people as well. I will not name them off because that would be too many names on my part lol.
So, here's to you DA, Happy Birthday and thank you for giving me the opportunity to show off my creativity and giving me the ability to meet wonderful artists and make amazing friends!!
