I am a 13 year old artist who is in grade seven and homeschooled. I starting making MLP art in 2018. The way it happened was that I was setting up my mom's old PC for my own use. I was also playing around with programs and found MS Paint. I only use the pencil, so my first piece of art didn't turn out so well LOL. Then later I was on YouTube when I found a speedpaint. It was the first speedpaint I had ever seen, and I recognized the program, so I use the speedpaint as a tutorial. Now, I've become an artist, and I'm glad my parents finally let me have a DeviantArt account.
What I use:
Art programs: MS Paint, Medibang Paint Pro, Paint Tool SAI, Inkscape, and Paint Tool SAI 2
Platforms used: Windows 10 Home and IPad
Screen recorder for speedpaints: Bandicam
Video editor: Windows Live Movie Maker
