My Bio

Hi! I'm Spitestar. But I also go by Kitastorm (or kitastorme) on other sites.

I've been drawing ever since I learned to hold a pencil in my hand. I wasn't serious about drawing until I was about ten years old, and my art interest exploded. I watched a lot of anime and I thought to myself, "why can't I draw like that?", so I began my journey to become an artist.Since starting my path through the world of art, I've picked up sketching, and painting. Right now, digital art is my go to medium of drawing.

I want to try writing original books or manga/comics, but I'm the kind of person whose brain specializes in leaping from idea to idea and I always say I'll "get back to that." but almost never do.

Anyway, nice to meet you!

Hey guys, it's been a wild ride. Glad we all made it through the year. There's been a lot of downs, but hopefully you've still had some fun in spite of all this craziness with the world! As with last year's summary, I'm going to chat somewhat briefly (sort of) on my favorite works. ~~~ The first drawing I put out was for Violet Evergarden. The work was not originally supposed to be of Violet. It was supposed to just be a doodle/sketch for practicing perspective and angles. As I was working on it, I had heard about the new movie coming out and was pretty excited. I always thought VE was such a gorgeous series and wanted to make more art for it since I wasn't really happy with how the previous VE fan art looked. I tried really hard on the background/foreground. Originally, I wanted to make it more pastel, but the more I fiddled with the coloring and lighting the lest pastel it got. In the end, I was super happy with how it turned out. I didn't draw the parasol correctly (it should

Guess what? Once again my laptop is completely fecked. AGAIN! I got the blue screen of death yesterday... Right around the busiest time of year for my drawing and schoolwork. It seems to be a booting error, which I might be able to fix by factory resetting it. I'm not sure how to do that, but I hope I can get it to work again. I'm a poor ass college student who can't afford a new laptop right now. If I can't get it to work, I guess I'll have to buy a new one since fixing this one seems like a mute point. It's broken twice on me already so I'm left to wonder if there's something fundamentally wrong with it's make or components. Note, I did not download anything sketchy or update it this time. I had booted it up normally that morning, left for school, came back, turned it on, and bam. Blue screen of death! As a reminder to all my artist friends and watchers. BACK UP YOUR FILES! BACK UP YOUR ART PROGRAM SETTINGS! If you use Sai, copy the files with your brush settings, textures, etc. If

I know a lot of people are unhappy with DA retiring the old site, and I get that. I too really liked the design of the old sight, it was easy, and was far more user friendly than the new site. Old DA also has a more "personal (?)" feeling to it. Rather than a portfolio, it felt like a place to share whatever you wanted, no matter if it was a masterpiece or not. However, everything must change and we must either go with it, or move on to something else. I have been on DA for 7 years. Even if I didn't ever really use DA up until a few years ago, I still have a connection to this site. I've found so many great artists who have inspired me to work hard, and I don't think I would be where I am without them. If I hadn't found them on DA, who knows what my art would've looked like. For that reason, I think I'm staying. Personally, I love DA enough to stick with it, even if I'm not 100% on Eclipse. While it is entirely possible someday I'll move on to other platforms, I really want to try
