My DeviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 12:59 PM
Bandwagon time!!

So I decided to share too, however, I don't really feel like shoving JUST my artwork up here is gonna do any good. You al already watch me, so you have seen my stuff. :L  So instead I'll be sharing stuff I have faved through the years. XD

Back when I joined dA in 2007(?) I was really in my anime phase. However it was Exileden that made me want to join dA. I saw many of her fanarts of Okami and I wanted to be able to see more. A few of my friends were also on deviantart, so I joined. Inuyasha, Wolf's Rain, Outlaw Star and Ranma 1/2 were my biggest offenders. rofl Yes, Offenders, because they stole all my time. From homework, I was in 11th grade during the 2007-08 school year. I used to draw a lot of that. This phase lasted a year or so. So here are some of my badly photod artworks from back then:

Sesshoumaru with a flute by Ahkward Battle of the Beasts 2 by Ahkward Grave of Inuyasha's Father by Ahkward Don't worry.... by Ahkward Adamant Barriage in the Demon by Ahkward


And some of my favorite faves that I could find, both fanart and original works

During 2009, Okami became especially big with me. I drew lots of fanart. I got my first tablet in 2009, but my artwork was very.... e____e It got worse before it got better! lol

2010 was a big changer for me, I switched my major into Animation, which had been Radiology Technology previously. I took my first art class in college and I saw a good improvement in a few months! :D Also, AVATAR (Pandora) finally came into my world and I really enjoyed it asn it's message. To this day I still love it and it's made a very large impact one me.

2011 was an odd year for me, I was really into Fullmetal alchemist and drew it often, however I created Ahk this year, so a lot of my work was in animation form. My interests varied still but I found the most inspiration in FMA/B (I was and still sort of am a big Jean Havoc fan.... ) Overall it was a year I moved more towards original work over fanart.

Mine:

Somepoint in 2012 I think, I don't recall, I got very fed up and angry that many people on dA were seeming to only watch me for the fanart. They didn't care much for the original artwork I posted and it upset me. So I went through a gallery purge and deleted most of it. :L I also created Koko that spring and when I started drawing Ahk and Koko together, I was told they looked like they came from the same world, so how did they know each other. That started Naor. :dummy: That summer I graduated from college with my animation degree and transferred to Ringling to continue education with a Bachelors in Fine Arts for Illustration.

I will sort of summarize the last 2 years together, since well, while I have improved a lot, most of my work has been dedicated to Naor, so sadly, not a lot of subject variation. e____e

It has been a very long journey so far, or it seems like it. I do intend to stay around for as long as possible.

I started Okami for the first time around 2 days ago and I'm having trouble inside the moon cave. I'm glad to say though that I have not died once in battle and for being 12 hrs in, I'm quite happy with that.

yeah, but I soon figured out that my file was glitched. I was in sei-an city trying to get all the trees. After two hours of looking I broke my rule of no walk throughs and realized I found them all but the game wasn't corresponding. So I have to delete that file >.< This time I'll take the games advice and make more than one save
