I'm trying to get started with some deviations and see what else I can do on deviantart.

Anyways I was hoping I could get to know some dudes and really get going with my account!

There's PLENTY to do on DA.
First you need to think about what it is you like to do. I noticed you have some literature in your gallery. You can join some literature clubs and share your stuff and read other peoples stuff and learn from them. Your front page is looking kind of bare, so you need to spice it up a little. Write a journal telling people why you joined and what you like to do creatively to give them a sense of who you are and a bit of an introduction to your art. Go to your settings and see how you can personalize the way you browse the community.

People get lost on DA for hours, you just gotta start exploring around a bit and eventually you'll find TONS of stuff to do on here.
Best of luck ;)

Hi there and thanks for the reply :)
Well I like a lot of generic stuff (like movies, video games etc.)but also like heavy metal and playing some tasty riffs on my guitar :horns:
How about you?

Hey. :D And no problem haha!
So you like music? Haha, I looooove playing an instrument. I play piano, but I also love hearing guitar. It really just helps you get away from it all, don't ya think? :)
Oh boy, I like a lot of things. xD Some of the basics, however, are Oreos, cats, and (obviously) art! :)

Yeah that's totally why I play - whenever I get depressed or angry or even bored I just play :D
yeah I like art too - Im just not very good at it! I'm better at writing tbh!
cats are awesome wish I had one-
:omg: Oreos are well nice!!

Definitely! The only thing different about me than most people who play instruments is that I like to play for myself. Like... I hate playing in front of other people. When someone asks me, I'm just like. ._.;
I just have like, the WORST stage fright possible and I'm terrified of messing up. But when it's just me there, I can play it perfectly(well, in my eyes haha)
Haha, most people prefer dogs! I love meeting cat people. :) Not assuming that you're a cat person, but anyone who at least likes cats haha.
I love Oreos, haha. xD

I know what you mean! I'm not in a band or anything I mostly just play for my own satisfaction :)Can't say I've ever tried being on stage with my guitar but I suspect I'd probably be the same!
Cats and dogs are both awesome, its nice to have someone to talk to who won't be a smartass and doesn't have a clue what you're on about sometimes :w00t:

Glad to see I'm not alone, ahah! And just curious, what type of guitar do you play? I'm assuming it's not acoustic, haha. Is it electric or bass?

Haha yes they are! They both definitely have their ups and downs. :) And yes, some people can be very frustrating sometimes, haha! That's why I sometimes just want to be alone! xD

I prefer to write adventure, but all I've written so far are twist-ending mystery/suspense stories.

Nice! Any particular bands?

And a period in history you like? What kind of movies? :la:

I like movies as well, and music and reading. Just the typical stuff, really.

otaconman Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I like a lot of 70's, 80's stuff like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Saxon etc.
but then again I also like new(ish) bands like A7x, Rise Against, Rammstein and a whole bunch of stuff that while not metal is still rock like Foo Fighters or Paramore. :horns:
How about you?

I like medieval history the most I guess :)
movies-wise not really fussed as long as it isnd a god-awful dance movie :bored:

How about you, what bands/movies d'you like?

That's pretty awesome.. quite a lot of heavy stuff, I guess.

Ah, I know the ones. :nod:

Lots of variety, but still rock-ish. :P

Why medieval?

That's fair enough. :lol:

I like Breaking Benjamin, Red, Lifehouse, and too many other bands to list.. music wise. Same with the movies. :P

Then colder. It's easier to warm up than it is to cool down - especially if it's humid -__-
