Well, I thought why not, it can't be that bad
Well, maybe, we'll see.
My "first" journal dates back to 2011 but I've been around since about 2010.
When I first came here I had no scanner what so ever. Most of my drawings I uploaded where taken with a crappy camera xD
Had a lot of Person 3 fanart going around at that time. Good times. Good times. Sadly, I stopped posting for about a year since the camera wasn't working for me and at some point it got lost. I didn't go on my DA as much either. I didn't know the first thing about this website and to some degree I was still learning about computers.
It was around the time I started college that I finally got my own computer and was able to use the school's scanner to scan my drawing and post them up. It was also around the time I started my first set of point commissions. I always made my commissions cheap since I thought it would be nice for everyone to afford getting their character drawn. And I thought it might be fun too. I drew a lot of Vocaloid stuff back then xD I swear, I need to draw more fanart. School was a killer though and for a time I had to stop posting. Gotta say, Columbia College was not the one for me. Threw my confidence right out the window. I didn't stop drawing but for a time I stop uploading. I was a huge fan of Katekyo Hitman Reborn here. Used to draw fanart and make random stories up for fun. I only posted a few of those pictures up. I also had some Kuroshitsuji drawings I never posted. Lots of SebastianxCiel. I had been keeping up with a lot of manga around that year too; Mysterious Girlfriend X, Faster Then a Kiss, Pandora Hearts, and a few others.
Believe it or not, this is when I first got my tablet. Yep, my tablet's only two years old and still kicking xD Dying a bit though OTL. I have to admit, it was no easy feat learning how to use the damn thing. At some point I wanted to give up because I didn't think I could do it. But I spent hours and hours on that thing. I even started sketching pictures and then scanning them in so I could outline them, forcing my eyes and hands to get used to looking up at my computer screen as opposed to the paper. The drawings I made were preeeetty bad. I think they are still floating around somewhere. This was also the very first time I was flame so badly and people called my art worthless and terrible. It made me feel pretty bad and even though I had been called out for my drawings before what hurt most was that people thought it was self-promotion and assuming I thought I was some kind of hot-shot who couldn't take criticism. For about 24 hours I put all my drawings in storage and felt horrible for even trying to post my work. But...it was the words of not only my watchers but people who saw the post and talked to me instead of judging me that made me realize that I can't just throw in the towel. People are going to hate my work, flame it, even call me some pretty nasty names for it, but I had a goal in life I wanted to see come true. So, I took a break from DA for about a month and I took that time to improve. It wasn't much, but it was something I put my heart and soul in. I wouldn't be the person I am if it wasn't for the incident.
This is the year I found the wonders of RP Groups. The first group I joined and the closest to my heart is none other then
I saw the group and thought it looked fun and the characters were wonderful. At first I decided against joining, since I didn't think I would be any good, but...I changed my mind and made a character anyway. You can only imagine how happy I was that I was accepted ^^ It was Bond of Fate the introduced me to the great friends I have today. And it's because of these friends that I have the confidence to join more groups, even if I don't get accepted. But it's also helped me with my character development. If I could thank everyone I would but there would be too many! But you all know how you are and you all know I love you ^^ Thank you for everything you've done for me. This was also around the time I finally recorded my Utau PepperMint. My friend Ginger was kind enough to oto her for me and my friend Acie for talking to me and letting me just love her adorable Utau Hello!
Sadly, this year has not been the best. A lot happened, old scars came up, got a blast from the past, and I've overall felt alone. I'm hoping 2015 holds more promise but for now, I will leave it at this.
Now I know I've probably missed A LOT but this is my DA life xD I guess?
But hey, it's not all bad, right? ^^ I hope you all continue to follow me.
And hey, feel free to talk to me O u Q I don't bite at all. For now though, I'll see you all later ^^/
