My deviantART Story

Sun Aug 10, 2014, 11:21 PM
Well, seeing as how everyone else around here is doing this, I figure I might as well give a shot for anyone who might be interested.



In the beginning, a little over seven years ago, I had found out about Deviantart from random searches online. I loved the artwork that I saw, and I even liked the community, so I officially joined up to appreciate all the different work. For the next few years I mainly lurked observed from afar, and didn't really submit any of my own artwork. I was far too bashful at the time, and I also didn't really feel my skills or my ability to upload  my art was all that great.



Then one day, after some small personal  feeling of success after a project I did in college, I decided to try posting a little of my work.

Can't Take It With You Final by ColonelYeo The War Begins by ColonelYeo



Admittedly these weren't the greatest things I had ever made. Looking back that's even more obvious now. ^^;
But what feedback I did get back from them did actually help me overcome some of my personal fears about posting art. So began a long interval of practice and trying to come up with art I felt worthy enough to post here. And with time, practice, and even help from tutorials and other artists her on DA, I began to see an improvement.

Not only did I see my confidence and skill with drawn and digital art start to grow, but I also found that both a new hobby of mine, and a skill I wasn't aware of, counted as art too. I of course mean my models.

I would never have guessed earlier on I would had the skill necessary to not only paint models, but then be able to take pictures of them good enough to get a positive response. Or that in my attempts to appreciate artwork and give feedback where I could, I'd have gotten as much attention as I have. It really has felt good. :)


While things going on in the real world, and other sources over the years, have made me unable to be as active a contributor as I'd have liked, I do feel that DA has helped me to grow. I would never tried cultivating my artistic skill at all if I hadn't had this site nagging me at the back of my mind. What's more, it's also given me the chance to talk with people I would never have had the chance to speak with otherwise. A few of my closest friends I owe to meeting right here.



Hopefully one day I'll be able to get more of my act together and do some more creating. But until that day comes, I'm going to continue to do things that I like. And hopefully everyone who's been kind enough to stick with me all this time will still enjoy seeing my work crop up from time to time.
