Okay, first you thing you should know about me is that writing is a first and foremost favorite thing to do. Heck, I was writing before I could even write.
Instead, I usually used pictures I drew myself to tell the stories I wanted to tell.
Used to to do that often, in fact, to the point I did little else years and years ago. But, while my skills improved for awhile, that eventually kind of fizzled, and I couldn't get those art skills to improve any more. Frustrated, and knowing that my current level of artwork wasn't going to be of use as anything more than a mere on-the-side hobby that was extremely limited, I all but gave it up.
Thankfully, I have rediscovered this almost lost skill, and have gotten it to progress forward again. It's still not where I'd like it (the art you other users produce usually trample mine) but it's growing and is now at levels I'm growing fairly proud of, even if there's plenty more still to learn.
My hope by choosing to make use of this account on deviantART is to hopefully learn new tricks and progress that skill even further than where it stands now, and eventually put that skill to use on various serious art-related projects. Maybe a graphic novel-type thing...we'll see.
