Wow... DeviantaArt's 14th birthday. Congratulations, guys!
I came on DeviantArt back in 2009. Before I came here, I really liked the art here and what it had to offer. The best part was that you could share your art with other artists! A good, old friend of mine, actually introduced me to DeviantArt when we were on another forum. At first, I was nervous. But then, I thought, "Why not?" So registered and I placed my first artwork up; a bit nervous. I saw other people who had really nice art than me and was feeling down. I felt that no one would want to see my art. But as the years passed, more people came and supported me. I even made new friends!
The feeling of other people seeing your art, being on social media, and making new friends is amazing. I've had my ups and downs, but as an artist, we grow. We improve on our work and ourselves. I'm just so grateful to help others and artists help me. If I hadn't come to DeviantArt, I don't know where else I would be right now. This is my second home; my second family. Every artists has a gift. Never give up on your passions and always believe that you can reach your goals.
My first art on DA... But not my last.
I have other artworks that I cherish. I love all my art, but I've chosen these for the Journal.
Cryptic Yume is my very first webcomic ever made. It's about a young woman named Celeste. Her mission is to fight the evil Goatman and his minions from ruling Cryptica. It's a comic focused on cryptids, adventure, and lessons for young people. I was a bit nervous to do this, but as time went by, people loved it. I'm hoping to bring it back, once I have my Photoshop updated.
My first art to have over 50 faves. I was amazed! Gotta love the fans of Jeff the Killer. Creepypasta is one of my favorite places of horror. I believe that if people stay creative and also understand that it's not real, Creepypasta will live on.
A poster I did for a Black History Month contest. It was a fun experience. I always believed that people should never forget where they came from in life, especially when it comes to the movie/music/art/etc. industry. We should also never forget our family heritage and always treat each other as human beings.
Happy Birthday, DeviantArt. I pray that you guys live on forever. Stay strong and creative!
