~Hi, here's some random stuff about me and my art~
I started trying to do art in 8th grade, 5 years ago now, as a self-taught artist until 10th grade when I joined art classes in my school and where I began to thrive better with guidance. I have switched in the more recent years from anime and cartoon to a much more realistic style and I also have expanded my interests into stuff such as building stuff such as jewelry and sculptures and photography. I spend most of my time working on stuff for my art classes, which I don't usually post on here, but I do enjoy posting stuff on here as well. I also have been playing drums since 5th grade and have a forever love for cats. I hope you enjoy looking at my stuff!

Mr. Chair/Jodi

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

So I guess today, 5 years ago I started here on DA (although on my page right now it still says 4 years while having the correct date on it saying it should be 5), mostly to just look at artwork because at that point I didn't like nor care for doing art of my own but eventually in the September of that year is when my journey of art started. I remember a friend told me about ways you could learn it online since I was no longer in art classes at that point (this was 8th grade) and then I skyrocketed in dedicated, drawing 4 to 5 things every day and then staying up until really late to finish my homework as well. It looked horrifying, mostly because I refused to really learn from art teachers all my life so I had a long way to improve before I was even really at my grade level, but my dedication has really never wavered.

Now fast forward, I may not have always shown my dedication on here every now and again because it was personal drawings or projects for school that I'm just not a fan of putting online but with every year there has been a new amount of dedication I have given to my artwork, eventually joining Studio classes in my high school in sophomore year, then skipping from studio 2 to studio 4 for my senior year and beating the school record of pieces made in one year (45 to be exact and then some personal stuff or stuff for here as well that I didn't count) and one of my sculptures is planned to be hung in my high school. Within these 5 years art has went from something I begrudgingly admitted I sort of liked, to a passion and hobby, and now to something I plan on doing as a career (and I have gotten some commissions) and going to college for after working for this gap year so I have money to go to school. 

What this is all boiling down to is a big thank you to everyone who has watched me from the beginning and encouraged me throughout this journey, and I can't wait to see the improvement in my art in years to come. Also, thank you to anyone who as joined on this journey along the way. To anyone who thinks of their art isn't good enough now, know that it's only you improving and you'll get better as time goes on. I plan on being more active on here in general for the rest of the summer and posting photography stuff as well as drawings and of course cats. I'm also planning on doing some other stuff like maybe joining a site to sell my art at (no offense to individuals but this community is way too underpriced for their commissions and since we are all artists trying to earn money, it's a hard market on here).

Anyways, I hope everyone enjoys their day and whatever season they are in right now. Keep working on your art! :peace:

Journal History


I have like fifty ideas in my head but a commission to finish before I will let myself start too many of my bigger projects and it's frustrating! Like I never realized how slow I am at wood textures in color but I'm learning that the hard way.
It's been so hot and humid today that not having an air conditioner is painful today. It's like just breathing partial water where I am. Not great
Is it just me or is it weird going back to cheaper material after using nicer stuff for a while? Like it's not horrible and you know you used to use this stuff a lot but now it just feels wrong. My piece I did today was done on sketchbook paper that is fairly cheap and after using other kinds that were more durable for this past year fairly exclusively, this felt rather weird.
Update, deviantart is working okay again, not sure if it will happen again but I hope not because that was really weird
Is it just me or is deviantart loading really weird????? Like it doesn't want to load and as I try to delete notifications it keeps adding them back because "Unknown error" and then it sometimes just says error as I try to leave a page to go to another and have to reload it again.
