I have been on this website for 6 years now (that's what the website tells me). I made myself an account after seeing that there was a lots of great art on this website and I could easily fav stuff and such. I do not remember when I started to upload my own stuff on deviantart, but we all know it happened one day x) At the beginning, I was already a silent watcher. I watched some people but didn't really comment and such because I didn't feel like bothering them? Because yes, I am the kind of person that is scared of people and doesn't want to bother them and ruin their life with my worthless existence, so I kept quiet. One day though, I don't know how it happened, I think it's because I was on the Koei warrior website and found out they had a group on deviantart. So I went there, of course, saw the ''oc'' folder and I was like ''omfg for real'' and that's how I met what I call today the Koei Family and most of my active watchers (because I actually have watchers wtf!?).
I think the first person I even contacted was Hvalross x) When I saw her dynasty warrior oc being paired with Zhang He, I was all like ''holy shit, I am not the only one who likes freaking Zhang He!'' I think I commented something like ''ZHANG HE IS LOVE!'' or whatever and she had quite the friendly reply (yeah! I didn't scare her!). Then I am pretty sure I met Kavaro after and I was just a big fan of their ocs, art, style and everything. After meeting them through deviantart, I decided to upload my own dynasty warrior oc online and you all know her because she's one of my favorite, my precious Ling Ying.
However, I know that I was already posting stuff on dA before Ling Ying because I use to draw only traditionally and was taking pictures of my ugly stuff and such. I remember since the first drawing of Ling Ying (DW7 outfit) was digitalized (it that even a word?) by me after doing it with a simple pencil. I got a digital tablet a few months after one of my friend got one and I always wanted to try. Of course, it was really hard at first and I really felt like a piece of shit while trying to draw digitally, especially since I was so obsessed by comparing myself with my other friends. That's also why I gived up on my tablet for a while, and then I used it again and I keep doing it today.
After that, I got into other fandoms, of course, got new ocs, but I think Ling Ying is the one that made me meet incredible and friendly people. I am still an awkward person and don't feel like I hate you if I don't communicate often with you all, I guess I am just like this.
I know that I am more social than I use to be to the dA community. I actually comment on people stuff and talk with some one in a while, which is great! Also, since I've really got into the community, my english got incredibly better and more smooth, that is actually really awesome! Of course, you guys are maybe reading this and you're all like ''dude, I see so many mistakes'' but hey! I am too lazy right now to correct myself, so screw you all! è_é I still have a hard time with my damn verbs...
Anyway! This is pretty much the most interesting part of my story, I guess? Although I really don't think I am an interesting person at all. I am just that random girl from the internet!
For the curious!
Here's my first try ever with my digital tablet!
And here's what I can do today!
I am not an artist, I do not consider myself as such. I draw because it feels good and because it's a hobby and I do it to please myself. It's not something I would want to study seriously into even if I envy lots of artist, but hey! I should just love what I do and be proud of it! I did learn a lot by watching some of my dA friends and I am really grateful to them. I wouldn't be at this point without you guys, so please take care!
Happy 14th deviantART!
