I have been here for 5 years; in all honesty for the first year or maybe the 2 years that I was here there was nothing being done from me. My story goes like this, I looked at artworks and used them to channel my thoughts into actions on many a roleplay(Looked at pics to gain inspiration on how to RP Fight) though other then that I talked to people, commented on art but what I did was simply look for some hours on end; admiring others skills which made me believe that to become an artist, to become even a good one was just not possible.
It all began with a Halloween Contest to make Deviant into a Monster; then the use of dollmakers to craft out characters but truthfully if it wasn't for the support of my comrades on here, I may not have gotten as far as I have; because the only way to get better is to try harder, try new things and to never, ever, give up; that is failure itself but what drove me on was my stubbornness, the sleepless nights where my mind sprouted idea's that had power within them. There is no true explanation for they are all true, I intend to keep Evolving as an Artist and as a Person. I'm starting out like the typical artist, who creates a fan character that is so much like an official character owned by a company but not anymore, slowly but surely these character(s) of mine are evolving alongside me into creations that stand as their own individual personalities, take this much advice folks there is no easy way in life to get what you want, you have to be persistent and want it enough to exceed, succeed and decree that you can do what you must do.
In recent years I have made some good friends, met unforgettable deviants and even collaborated with some exceptional artists who know the difference of what Art is, that it's a Skill not a Talent as a good artistic individual once said, so the story just goes like this; be as artistic as you can be, take advice that is good when it is given to you, don't rush, never rush, take your time and most importantly.....Have Fun!
