I found it almost seven years ago via MySpace (which I don't use anymore). My first reason was free exposure, but eventually I didn't need that anymore, and then (after a break) I discovered the forums. After a second break I decided to check up on everything, and was eventually persuaded by a fellow deviant to stay around. Now it's a little on and off, depending on my work situation.

Beautiful works. The technical skills, the conception, the vision behind those works, impacts me beyond words.

I first came about here when I was searching for pictures for my presentation. The works amaze me till today.

God told me in a dream about this wonderful landscape and how I would be the one to rule them all. :B

Step 4: Be $

Step 5: Be + :evillaugh:


On a more serious note, some Youtube I was following around when I was 9 had an account here. Lurker for years and years, having underaged accounts until I was old enough. :nod: Still, even when I was old enough (to comply with COPPA), I still didn't have my head in the game. :stare:


This all sounds like a plot to a shitty movie. :|

Well, I have to thank *Heleannor for this. I was watching a Youtube video by Heleannor about these 3D models she had up for download. I was SOOO desperate for the models. I went to the link in the description and it brought me to dA. When I saw that she only allowed people who have a dA account to get the model, I was so angry! So, I kinda made this account in anger. ^^;
The benefits of a dA account? I joined a group called FF7-RP and met the nicest group of people. They're like family to me, especially the founder. She's like an older sister to me. :)

I used to be a frequent visitor to fanart-central.net, but then I discovered this wonderful site through it. I was a constant visitor for a few years until my sister :katenotkatie: joined up. I finally worked up the courage, deciding to put up my writing and see what people thought of it.

And one of my favorite artists was the first to watch me! :D

I found out about it loosely over the years from being on the internet, but ultimately a friend pulled me on here. I have always enjoyed drawing pictures, and being able to view what other people have created and posting my own has been fun. I also find it interesting to see the kinds of people who are attracted to different fan bases, what styles people are interested in, and how others get around common artistic challenges.

I found it way back in HS (this is a new account) and I've always loved drawing, so it was perfect. I've only started doing digital art the past year and I'd say this community has been great for helping me further my potential. Having all this art floating around is great for creativity and inspiration! There's noother place like DA to me.

I use a Monoprice tablet, 10x12 inch, full function and highest pressure sensitivity. It cost me $60. Yes, 60. Not 600. 60. lmao

I also use Paint Tool Sai for basically all my drawings/painting at this point. It's cheaper than PS and much more streamlined.

lol As for how? Well, I'm an anime artist so I work with line art, and then color it in, then shade, etc. Even with such a simple program as Sai, there are a million ways to do things, which I love, because I'm always learning something new ^_^ I'm no where near professional, but I've improved a lot in the last 8 months and expect that I'll continue to improve as time goes on. Like I said, being on DA has been really good for me as an artist :)

i uploaded my first attempt, yesterday :)

ochanotsuki Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup, $60. I really prefer PTS just because its more streamlined for digital art without all the photomanipulation tools. It looks like your getting the hang of it (tablet) :) it took me a few weeks to really feel natural with my tablet, but now it's as easy as normal drawing ^_^.

I came here because I wanted to see *all* artwork of people I met in another forum. In the beginning, I didn't upload anything and just wrote comments and :+fav:ed other deviants' works. Today I am working in different media, and I am thankful for all the tutorials, good advice and inspiration I can find here.

Some people just have the talent to let you forget your doubts and just draw or write something. I'm not really good yet, but I am getting better and I have seen worse.

I think the pub section around here is two right turns. Be careful of all the red faced snoring drunkards though! They get a bit... Violent if you trip on their prone bodies and wake them up BEFORE the hangover is over. UNLESS you wake them up with a bottle of whiskey! :P

A friend in high school told me about it when they found out I enjoyed doing digital art, they used to have an account here but it's been dead for so long it's just a skeleton by now :skull: But I lasted, I think the forums pulls me back a lot, but even without them I would still stay as it's a constant source of inspiration as well as the best chance I have of getting my work known :)
