Happy Birthday Deviant Art!
My story begins in 2006, I was 17, in the flourishing period of myspace, forumfree, splinder and msn. I was the administrator of a forum called "Blood & Tears" (for the song), was a forum that embraced the goth's philosophy that was very popular in those years.
I was responsible for the forum's graphics, and I became quite good at manipulating photos with Paint Shop Pro. Parallel, in the forum and in my blog, my photos became very famous, I was a pretty popular model.
So I decided to combine the two, making photo dressed in lace and corsets, and modifying them by the computer to create images very dark and ghostly. What better place if not deviant art to post them in high definition?
None of porn, some just a little sexy.
Here, in contrast to my forum, not met with great success, so I left Deviant Art without deleting the account.
My life went on forever hand in hand with the art. It took me a long time to finish high school, but I decided to go to university anyway. It was not a success, but I came back to the world of digital art, and discovered the magical world of photoshop!
Wow, I fell in love almost immediately and, after my birthday (my boyfriend gave me a wacom tablet that I still use <3) of the 2013 I began to produce.
My Harley Quinn was my FIRST FIRST attempt with Photoshop. She was born in April of 2013!
Btw I dusted my Deviant Art account, finding those old photos and... OMG they were horrible! ahahaha I was cute but I changed the photo so terrible!
So I erased everything! Embarrassed haha!
And I began again, much more mature but still very curious. I still have not learned all of this web site, sometimes I discover something new or fight with things that I don't understand, because I'm Italian and the English language still has many secrets for me.
Was Deviant Art, and the artists who make it up, to make me a better person and a better artist, getting day by day SO much support from all of you. A support that my family doesn't support me, but it doesn't matter, as long as there are people like YOU to support me,
this will be an endless journey and a wonderful one.
