Words can not express the amazing experience I had this past week at SDCC thanks to DeviantArt. DA has always been there in my art journey, and they really made me feel like I am doing something right for the first time in my life. I have been part of so many "art communities" IRL, but the one community that I neglected since I started creating art wholeheartedly is the one I feel the most connected to.
DeviantArt was the first art website I joined 13 years ago, I posted my crappy drawings and sculptures, and horrible attempts at digital art. A few friends complemented me, and so did random people online. After some time I stopped using the site, for no real reason. A few years back I met @nevaeh-lee and decided to "rejoin" DA. I cleared out all my old art, changed my username to match all my other social media, and slowly started posting again. Fast forward to a few months ago and DA posted this:
I read it and was like "sure, I'll reply, why not. It's not like anything will come
wow wow! I've only made one journal entry on here (⌒_⌒; ) 13 years and only one entry.
I'm trying real hard to be more active on here. When I first created this account I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with art. There were a lot of horrible first attempts at digital art, and some not so bad traditional art, but in the end they all got deleted to make way for what I am really excited about! COMICS!
I've been making comics for the last 6 years or so, and it's been a lot of fun. Some have been on The Nib, and Eater (VOX), so I'm a bit proud of that. But I really hope to get my newest comic published one day. It's a longer one.
