Yup hopping on the bandwagon
been here since 2003-ish I think. Old account was which has been deleted a few years back
My account's oldest pieces of art (That I haven't deleted anyway )
these were my very first commissions. Thanks to these people for ordering from me <3 I was such a noob in digital art back then. This was fall 2011
Some of the newer ones that I'm proud of:
My account is technically 6 years old (almost 7 possibly) But I only became really active with it in summer 2011 when my maternity leave pay was stopping soon and I needed a way to make money. I developed some nasty anxiety and depression, and didn't want to go back to work. I really don't have many skills nor smarts and didn't want to attempt college either since I didn't know what I wanted to do xD.
I was working at a cleaning job and had no time for drawing, and this was my chance to get back into it, so I decided to turn to commissions. I learned quickly that it wasn't as easy to sell them as i thought. Everyone did them so I figured they were easy to sell. In my old age I became wiser in the way of internet-arting.
My biggest inspiration was and will always be who is a big influence over my current style, he just keeps getting better and better
I made some amazing friends and contacts here too. I don't get to talk to them all as much as I want to but they are all great
(AND MANY MANY MORE, sorry If I didn't list you~ There is alot of amazing people I wanted to list but didn't want to forget anyone)
Commissions were my focus and motivation. I just wanted to make money so I wouldn't have to go back. But it didn't exactly work out xD But that's okay. I still managed to improve my art quite a bit and learn alot. I got a kitchen job for now, but am looking into pet grooming as a career. I have decided to make a online webcomic soon, just waiting for the chance to start it. Deviantart was a great experience for me, glad to have been here
I think thats all I got to tell that was really interesting xD
