This is HT LGBTQ+ Artworks' official DeviantArt Profile. All SFW and some DA-compliant mature stuff will be featured here.
I'm an aro cis bi male artist with high-functioning autism but I'm pan on making NSFW fanart. I'm attracted to both females and males in real life but not on femboys and tomboys/butches.
I started making random digital art using MSPaint in my childhood during mid-90s but officially unveiled my first digital art account in DeviantArt in 2007 as theoleningrad. It was also the same year when I started using Adobe Photoshop instead of MSPaint for making art. Currently, I use both PS and Paint Tool SAI for making work.
Prior to 2010, most of my works in DA don't use my watermark because I haven't created one yet. The "HT" Logo was created back in 2009 but only used on works posted in my defunct Friendster account. That logo was subsequently unveiled on my newer works in DA. I decided to name it "HT Artworks" in 2012. Due to possibility of confusion with brands and firms bearing very similar names to mine, I decided to rebrand it to "HT LGBTQ+ Artworks" on 2020, reflecting my passion of making works with mostly LGBTQ+ themes.
The reason why I started to make NSFW art in 2015 because back in mid-2000s, I already seen Hentai from many fandoms like Anime and Cartoons (such as Disney). I have subsequently known about Yaoi/Bara during the same period. This was the same period when I suddenly knew about the old y!G in 2007 but decided not to join there yet because I was 16 years old back then and I was afraid that someone might be spying me. Due to lack of more gay art of characters from Seth MacFarlane's 3 shows (such as Stewie), I subsequently joined in 2015 and create more gay art of that fandom. On the same year, I opened my pixiv, Hentai Foundry, AllGayArt and FurAffinity accounts to expand fanbase.
Another reason why I joined the NSFW fandom because I was inspired from the works of Karmagik, frost969 (now zro5um), GP375, Iyumiblue, Salmagundi, SlashweilerDog, Yoshi & others.
In 2016, I subsequently expanded my fandom to include The Simpsons, Futurama and South Park in order to create more works with diversified fandom. I also created accounts in HicceArs, Rule34 Paheal and Tumblr as well. On the same year, the old y!G was suddenly shut down by hackers allegedly led by a former staff and I was very devastated, like many others, because we lost our home for Yaoi/Bara fandom and were forced to refuge elsewhere.
In first years after the old y!G's shutdown, this was the period where I include Bob's Burgers and Rick and Morty on my works because there are not enough Yaoi/Bara art of these fandoms. I created my Yaoi AI account as well. Unfortunately, I have a long hiatus from 2018 because I've got busier than usual and I couldn't make more art. The same year when I deleted my Tumblr page due to the site's subsequent ban on porn.
My interest of making NSFW art was renewed in 2020 when Y!gallery was revived once again. I want to thank all the staff who tried to revive this site once more and hopefully, update it to the newest site platform in the future. Many Yaoi artists, like me, were very happy about the site's revival. On the same year, I created my Baraag account. Choices: Stories You Play was subsequently added to my list of diversified fandom.
On 2021, I created BaraAddiction, newTumbl and Newgrounds profiles to expand more reach. Unfortunately, I lost all of my works' original files (created prior to May 2021) due to external HDD failure. Despite this incident, it won't put me down. I will still try to make more art as possible.
