I haven't been very active recently, so I thought 'what better way to kickstart my page back into life than a long monologue about the time I've spent here on Deviantart so far'? So here it is; my Deviantart story.
And it begins with a very special person,
My best friend in the universe, Andernell
We met in the first year of high school, she wanted my email, I told her that I only give my email to people with phone numbers, a universe was born. We found a common interest in only the choicest selection of anime the internet had to offer ('Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo' in particular)
, along with a love of Square Enix and drawing all kinds of weird shit involving our favourite characters. (No, not like that. Promise.)
She showed me Deviantart, and although the early relics of that time of our lives are all but erased (read: swept under the rug), there are a few of my early uploads that can give you a general idea of what went on.
(Of course, this isn't representative of Andernell's spawns - she had years of experience under her belt even then).
Then, as time went on, we practised our craft, fantasized about moving to Japan to become 'manga-ka', wore a lot of black, we slowly wormed our way out of that pit and grew together both as artists and as people. Nowadays, we still draw weird shit, wear a lot of black, and watch a lot of anime - but we're a hell of a lot less obnoxious about it. Desu.
During my time on Deviantart, as a fledgling deviant babu, I stumbled into the dAmn chatrooms. In my travels through the slightly less socially adept chatrooms (and I say that with love), I made some gorgeous friends, including these guys: GlynnRaynes Wolfy-Westy SpeculatingTurtle AlgorithmicOverlordJex-LumiKhoth
- whom are all giant nerds and I love them to bits. I also met GlynnRaynes
at the Download Festival '13, which was a fab weekend and I really want to do it again!!
As far as my art goes, I'm proud of how far I've come and I'm still as enthusiastic as ever to improve even more and see what the future holds! Thanks for nearly 7 great years, Deviantart.
