My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 12:03 PM
I decided to post one deviation from each year I've been on deviantART to see my progress over the years!

I joined deviantART in 2003 when I was in high school. I actually had an account before this one (don't ask me the username though because I don't remember it!). But the first deviation I posted to this account is actually featured below. It was posted November 23, 2003. I was a junior in high school - so about 17 years old or so. I found deviantART through other users on neopets.com. I used to play that site all the time and I remember the first time I came across artwork that was done digitally - I was completely blown away and KNEW I had to get my hands on some programs so I could learn how to do it. This artist (I can't remember who it was, I apologize!) had a link to their deviantART account, so I followed it and decided to join the ranks.

I started my digital career with MS Paint and a mouse. Eventually, I was able to get myself different versions of Photoshop and my sophomore year of college I finally bought myself a tablet (which I actually still have and use btw...about 8 years later). By this time I had been accepted into the animation program at BYU and was quickly falling in love with character design and pre-visual development. I got a lot of my inspiration from deviantART and the amazing community of artists here.

I've been through a lot since I joined this site - you can see that through my work, or lack thereof in some cases. Since joining I've graduated high school, graduated college, got married, lost a child and gave birth to a second. I've grown from a young woman to an adult (but still a kid at heart!)

Even though life has this way of changing us, I always find myself returning to dA. Despite everything I've experienced in life - things that have caused long absences at times - I'm never gone for long. This site is home to me. It's helped me become the artist I am today and inspires me to continue to push myself. And even though there are only a handful of people on this site that I know in real life, I feel like so many people on here are part of my family. You've stuck with me through the good and bad, always there to offer congratulations or a hug or a shoulder to cry on. Anything I need, I know I can come here and find friends waiting for me. THAT'S where the magic of this site lives for me - within each of you. It's not the artwork, it's the friends that I think of first when I hear "deviantART".

Thank you dA, for giving me a home for my art. It's been such an amazing journey and I can't wait to see where it takes me next!
