This doesnt belong to the giveaway/contest, but still it may be interesting for you to read! :D

My personal dA 3 1/2 years flashback:

My first submission:

Winters Wrath by JoJoesArt

With this picture it all started... My style was much much different back then and I was not really advanced in using Photoshop and my tablet, but I thought it was the first picture worth posting here on dA. I was mostly inspired by sandara by then, who is still one of my biggest rolemodels. :heart:

My first popular deviation:

Avatar Neytiri by JoJoesArt

This picture is the one, which started all the popularity and the overwhelming support I gained over the years. Avatar became the most popular movie of all time and I had much luck and kinda chose the perfect moment to draw and submit my Neytiri piece. Over night I got more than 1500 favourites and over 100 comments, which was the most exciting thing ever! My other pieces never got more than 50 favs back then. Till today the picture was downloaded more than 40,000 times, which is my most downloaded picture. This was really the starting point, because I also gained many more watchers and interest in my art. I still didn't really find my own style, I was still experimenting. :)

Fotolia Contest.. best decision ever:

God of Evanescence by JoJoesArt

I would call this the first picture, that really developed my own personal style. And it is one of my favourite pieces, even today! I submitted it to the Fotolia contest here on dA and it got the most popular of all entries over night. It was so exciting and overwhelming to read all the supportive comments and the picture is still among my most popular (most seen, most commented) pieces. It has also been my icon ever since! :D Even though I didn't win the contest, it still was the best decision to participate!

First Pokemon inspired piece:

I am here with you by JoJoesArt

Pokemon has always been my favourite game. It influenced my childhood and youth in a manner, that no other game or show could ever do. Till then I mostly drew fantasy pictures, dragons and stuff like that. I wasn't sure if my watchers would also appreciate Pokemon fanart, but when I submitted this painting I was tought differently! In no more than 3 days it had over 8000 favourites and 500 comments and was my first deviation to be the most popular of 1 week and even 1 month. Since then Pokemon became a major inspiration for me, not just because it was a popular topic, but because I always enjoyed drawing it and now saw, that people actually wanted to see more! :heart:

Simplicity makes the picture:

Night Bringer by JoJoesArt

This piece is one of my personal favourites. It is also one of the pictures, I spent no more than 5 hours on, so it is rather simple compared to many other pictures by me. But I learned, that a picture is much more about the atmosphere and idea than a massive amount of detail. This piece is also my most sold print, as it was featured by the staff of dA on the dA print shop. I am so happy to be able to even earn money with my hobby, it is still unbelievable for me!!

My first Daily Deviation:

Forgotten Fairytales by JoJoesArt

This piece by me was the first one to be featured as a Daily Deviation. It was the greatest honour for me, when I logged in and saw my piece down between all the awesome pictures, which were chosen to be featured. Till today I have received 4 DD's, of which each one is more than appreciated! :heart:

Princess Mononoke:

Princess Mononoke by JoJoesArt

This is my all time favourite picture of mine. The movie "Princess Mononoke" had a great impact on my childhood and I loved that movie ever since I can remember. When I finally got to draw a fanart, I was really satisfied with it and had so much fun drawing it! It also hugely developed my style and I improved in drawing humans! And it is my most popular deviation, with nearly 18,000 favourites as of this moment. I can't believe that many people decided to fav it! It is just incredible!! :la:

Universe:

Universe by JoJoesArt

This is the first traditional picture I was really really satisfied with! After all the years of drawing digitally I was not used to traditional art anymore, but my sister PixieCold kinda got me into it again! This picture means a lot to me and it also proves, that simple things often are better than the hyper complex ones! ^^

...

That was it about my little "flashback".. ^^ I really hope you enjoyed reading it! :D I am so happy about all the exposure, feedback and awesome opportunities this site has given me as an artist! Every one of my watchers contributes highly to my success and improvement and you all inspire me to keep going!! Thank you so much for everything! Without you I would be nothing! :heart: :heart:

Heyy my watchers!! :heart:

I am on facebook now!! :la: :la: :la: I think facebook offers a lot of cool features and a very wide audience, so I thought I should join there as well!! :D I will be posting my artworks and WIP's + unfinished or old works + tutorials etc. So you will get to see a lot more there than here on deviantart (which doesnt mean I will be less active here :D)

Here is the link to my page: www.facebook.com/JojoesArt

To celebrate this (and also to invite people to like my page.. hehe ^^), I decided to launch a little event, where you can win a FREE TRADITIONAL (Watercolor) COMMISSION by me!! Which means I will mail you the original painting via post for you to enjoy it!! :D

And also three other participants will get 100 dA points each!!! :la:

All you have to do to be able to win is the following (takes only 2 minutes):

1. Like my facebook fanpage www.facebook.com/JojoesArt

2. Fav this journal

3. Leave a comment here giving your facebook username (so I can check if you liked the site ^^)



Thats all!! :D

The winners will be picked totally randomly 3 days after I posted this journal!! :la:

If you want you can also share/like my site or my picture/s (right now there is only one, but many more will follow :D), it would make me so happy!! (and maybe it will even increase your chance of winning.. haha :D xD)

Thank you for your support!! :heart: Surely everyone is also invited to like my page without taking part in this event! ^^ I just thought it would be a nice start to dive into the world of facebook.. haha :D

Found myself in the ER last night with severe abdominal pains. Spent half the night thinking I was having an appendicitis, luckily got word back from the doctor that I had a ruptured ovarian cyst (not as lethal, but not much more pleasant XP ) and didn't have to go in for surgery.
