My dA story is one of emotional rollercoasters and hiatus'...
I always kind of drew, but never thought I was any good and never thought I COULD get any good. Then around 4 years ago, someone very special to me saw my drawings and encouraged me to continue to practice and pursue the thing I love regardless of what anyone else thought. I found dA and really thought it was only for the best artists out there and at the time my skills were still extremely lacking...
I took a chance though and threw myself into the community with the hopes of making connections with other artists and art appreciators to make friends and of course, improve my skills. It was the best thing I've ever done for my art skills. I've met a lot of people and seen so many helpful tutorials. This art community is still my favorite on the internet and I wear my dA cap in public with pride.
I wasn't always active, although I was usually at least hanging around and admiring other's works. I've had ups and downs and considered quitting art a number of times... but I just can't... even if I don't draw everyday, it is and always will be a part of who I am.
Watching my new little girl grow and learn is a constant inspiration. I cannot wait to share this passion with her.
