Well, hello! This is my first journal, even though I've joined DeviantArt 5 months ago. But I suppose it's never too late, right?
I had a bit of a rocky start both with art and on DeviantArt. I'm new to digital art, and I hadn't drawn anything a long time. I pretty much started drawing again when I joined DA, except for a couple doodles to get accustomed to the whole software and techniques.
As you can tell NOW, my natural style is toon. For some reason thick outline, round shapes and strong color choices always looked pleasant to my eyes. But I love and admire so many different styles, and I was worried something like toon wouldn't be good enough. So I tried a bunch of different stuff, and by looking at my gallery, you can tell most of it is a mess. But it was indeed good practice! I'm learning stuff on my own, so every bit of trying new and different things helps me.
Also I'm really awkward. I'm a shy person and that made it really hard for me to get started working on the social asp
