Happy birthday to DA! You must've been born on the same year as me ovo but you're a few months older.
So, I joined DeviantART via Spark, mostly. Spark joined it pretty much straight after we turned 13, so she showed me DA muro and I was in awe at all of them brushed I was pretty much pulling the OwO face the whole time (Yes big eyes and all).
A little later I had forgotten about it, but got linked to it via Splash (pSarahdactyls). As soon as the page loaded, I recognised it and joined since Spark already had and all that crap, so whatever. Tbh the proper reasons I actually joined it was for:
1. Them brushes
2. I wanted to comment on Splashs profile.
So I did, and I felt achieved. I drew a lot on that first day, including my very first thing posted (no duh),
which omq I can't even bear to look at. So I also posted a crap fan art for Splash,
ew which my freaking amazing first watcher and best DA friend found me from!
In that first month, my mind was set on being like Splash, which I admit, was a very stupid thing to try and do. In the later months, I realised that I am not Splash, and I do not have to be like her, and that I was restricting myself. I just wanted to be as inspiring and talented as her. So I bought another character for myself, Joy,
, from TlTANlUM , and from then on made (and bought) a few more characters. This is my DA, not Splashes. I am allowed more then one character. (not saying that she's not, but I guess she doesn't for the sake of her fans)
I have a sense of my style now. I'm not a wannabe anymore, I'm doing, and trying to improve as much as I can. She still inspires me, but I have found so many more talented artists to admire as well.
Over the months I met and appreciated a bunch of friends who have done nothing but be amazing and support me,
and I love y'all so much :3 I love all of my watchers tbh, you guys are what helped me go from this:
and I couldn't have improved at all without you guys.
You guys have been there for me every step of the way, and I couldn't have even imagined anything like this happening way back in February when I clicked the sign up button.
I LOVE YOU ALL! DON'T STOP BEING AMAZING AND KEEP TEACHING ME HOW TO DO BETTER! I COULDN'T ASK FOR BETTER WATCHERS.
I LOVE FREAKING ALL OF YOU.
