This website! Oh boy this website! Happy Birthday deviantArt!
I have been a deviant for roughly 10 or so years. It REALLY doesn't feel like it's been that long but it apparently has. I mean when I joined, deviantArt looked like this:
I was only 13/14 when I joined up and it was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. deviantArt was there for me through some of the biggest milestones of my young life and through it all encouraged and inspired me to become a better artist.
When I first joined up my art looked like... well this. These are three of the first pieces I ever submitted.
Thanks to all of the friends I've made here, the resources and tutorials that were made available to me because of deviantArt, and just the encouragement to keep practicing and keep getting better that this website gave me. I'm proud of how much my art has grown during my tenure here. Below Find three of my latest pieces.
Happy 14th Birthday deviantArt! And thanks.
