My Deviantart Story

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 12:37 AM


So I joined dA back in December 4 in 2008. I am approaching my 6th year of dA and I've been active my entire time on here. 
An old friend whom is not here anymore introduced me to dA, and it seems out of all my original friends on dA, I am the only one left. 
I've made so many friends since, two of which I plan to meet personally when I'm able to afford it. 
They are Raenyras and Infernal-Feline

To me, dA is a community that brings people together so they can share their art and creations, stories and other things they find interesting. Here on dA, people are so supportive of other people's creations, I've noticed. 

When I joined dA, my art skill was, and lets be honest, pretty shit. I didn't know what layers were and I honestly didn't know how to use photoshop or anything like I do today. I didn't even have a tablet, and used the mouse to colour.

But then I got a tablet for my birthday and it came with the program called "Corel Painter" and thus my first digital image was born (still without layers and I still coloured over my scanned sketches)

After playing around with this program for a bit, I started to learn about Layers and how to draw lineart directly onto the computer. At this point I still traced my traditional sketches, but it was a start.

After practicing for a while, I eventually started to become more confident in my art abilities, and realized I preferred digital art to traditional art. I began working longer on each piece and putting more effects and effort into them, trying to make each one better than the last.

My art was improving, I was getting better. Eventually, I started to pump out even more complicated pictures, still on the theme of my old book "Crime Patrol", which is actually being recycled and reused for the series that happens after my current trilogy "Hunter's Moon".
At this stage, I started to create OCs that weren't apart of my books anymore, just random Characters that were for fun. Thus, Toni was born. She was a character I made to go with comicmaniac1's Andre Fille, a vampire.

Eventually I had my first ever couple with someone else, my Toni with comicmaniac1's Charlez (who now belongs to me after she gave him to me ^^)

It was fun as hell and great to share my character with someone else. Eventually I made OC couples with other people, but CM1 still remains the first person I ever put an OC with xD 


Nowadays, my OCs are entirely different. Almost all of my OCs now are directly related to my Trilogy "Hunter's Moon" and it excites me that I'm nearing completion of the first book and that I'll be able to finally share these characters with you all properly. 
Here are just some concepts of them for you:

The Party Girl by SironaBennetThe Elder by SironaBennetThe Egyptian by SironaBennetThe Ateyok Doctor by SironaBennetThe Mentor by SironaBennetThe Student by SironaBennetThe Blind Vigilante by SironaBennetThe Slave Trader by SironaBennetThe Aggressor by SironaBennetThe Spacewife by SironaBennetThe Necromancer by SironaBennetThe Advisor by SironaBennetThe Immortal by SironaBennetThe Immortal King by SironaBennet

Thank you for reading my very long but informative story, that's not just about me, but the growth of my OCs as well xD I've remembered everything for ages now and it's good to finally share with you my growth here on dA. 
Enjoy and here's to more years on dA :heart:

My Goal is to become a well known artist here on Deviant Art and to one day get a Daily Deviation :XD: I live through my art, and I hope you enjoy it.

No thanking please!!

You don't need to thank me for favs.
I appreciate that you're thankful but it's not necessary.

This stops most people from flocking my messages with thank yous, but there are still a few of you that still thank me. You're welcome for the fave, but there really is no need to thank me.
SERIOUSLY
