Happy Birthday, DeviantART Community! Thanks for existing.
I was lucky enough to discover DeviantART through some really great friends of mine a couple years ago. It took a little getting used to, but it was inevitable. I fell in love with the site. My art wasn't necessarily good (and it's still not, in my opinion) but I'm improving. And DeviantART played a big part in that.
Through DeviantART I gained friends, confidence, encouragement, inspiration; and so much more.
There are so many people with talent on DeviantART, and those who work hard to reach their goals. It never ceases to amaze me how much work and dedication was put in to create such a wonderful place of expression and art.
I'm proud to be here to celebrate the 14th Birthday of the DeviantART Community.
Some of my works:
I chose this one, because it shows how I've improved. Which is a lot! I'm really proud of this. It's some of the first scenery I've done, as well.
I chose this one not because it's very good- but because in this case, I think it would represent the friendships I've created on DeviantART.
I chose this one, because Maleficent was a great film, and deviantART had inspired me to try a different form of art to show my appreciation for it.
(I feel like I'm repeating the first phrase over and over, I'm sorry.) I chose this deviantation, because it shows how well we're able to express ourselves on deviantart. And it helps, a lot of the time.
Also this; I know I've already mentioned how deviantART is wonderful for getting you to try new things... But I can't stress that enough! This position, I had never EVER in my life tried before. And I'm glad I did it, because now I have a new perspective, and a new skill. I'm a better artist for it.
Thank you for reading my story!
