uhh I will try to be brief!
I first discovered Deviantart randomly through an image on google, but didn't register, years passed and often I browsed for awesome art and it was artists like nami64
who inspired me to open an account. I bought a tablet and even though I sucked really bad I decided I would try my best to improve and someday be as good as my inspirations were. I thought I would never recieve a DD so you can imagine how thrilled I was and greatful now I am so proud to say I have gotten 3. It's an indescribable feeling.I deleted all my old deviations but you can still see them in the 2009 section of this post:
The first linework I ever colored here was nami64
(I deleted my deviation sadly so I can't show you D= )
Deviantart has played a big part of my artistic progress and my decision to make a career as an artist. If it weren't for this site and all the people I have met through here I probably would be doing something else that I didn't enjoy. Some of my happiest and saddest memories were made here. The first time someone believed in what I did and supported me/commissioned me was also here. I really don't want to get emotional so I will leave it here now hahaha.
Some of the first pieces of art I loved on da:
