Uh, right, so... Might as well? Um... To be perfectly honest, I don't remember much from the 'early days.'.. I don't remember why
Apparently, though, I joined on Jan 23, 2009, so I would have been... -thinks- 15 years old, and in 9th grade. Damn. Freshman year of high school... Full of Algebra 2, Geometry, and a failed Drama class, oops. Right, so... 2009... 2009... Bloody hell, I can't even think of what might have made me join? Maybe it was friends, maybe I just stumbled across it, I dunno.
Oh look, the first thing I ever uploaded. Which can't be seen with my usual Journal skin so I guess I'll go default "no skin." Boo.
Huh... Yeah, that was from a set, where I had a sudden burst of actual skill for once and sketched based off official artwork.
The Pidgey is better. I couldn't reproduce this thing at all, ever. Nope.
Right, so... for most of the previous 5 or so years, I was developing my colouring skills. Colour, colour, colour. In fact, the below image is the only thing I really drew
until...oh... 2010, which is the 2nd image below. I'm not including the TraceArt because, well, traced. AKA cheating, so yeah.
After that, I started doing a little more actual drawing, in part thanks to High School art classes with Mr. Seidell, aka the coolest art teacher in existence (personal opinion but it's true). Dragons and cats, mostly. But they were horrible, except for one, my Shadow-Dragon mental persona.
Look at it, I'm actually rather proud of it~ Except the diamond-planet-moon-thing. That sucks.
This, however, is full of fail. Ew. Gross. In fact, why do I even still have
Still, mostly it's all colouring, because my passion is colouring. In fact, I've started to just calling myself a colourist because that's basically what I do. Used to be mostly traditional, but I've found I really enjoy digital.
I've also submitted some photographs taken from around my house, inside and out. Also some writing, lately roleplays from The-Golden-Butterfly. Man, that group... I haven't been a member for long but it's already helped me grow as an artist, writer, roleplayer... Absolute wonderful community, too <3 Truly amazing.
So yeah. About it. I actually wrote more than I thought I would, oops. Ah well.
