❤ Pictures for me
SO I saw people doing these recently, so I figured I might as well too~
I joined deviantART in September 2009 after two online friends at the time kept insisting I make an account. So I did...
But I didn't even touch it until January 2010 LOL I didn't even know how to use the site :'D
I remember saving drawings I liked to my computer because I didn't even know how to favorite them omg2010
: I got my first tablet for Christmas in 2009, which prompted me to start digital art and use this site 'u'
THIS being my first submission
Sadly, I've removed QUITE a bit of my old artwork from 2010 and 2011, but I used to post A LOT of things here
2010 was probably my most active year, and the year I improved the most.
As seen here, from a March drawing to a December drawing from the same year~
2010 was the year I was making new online friends such as
These guys are truly my online best friends and I don't know what I would have done without their support over the years 2011
: Another year of A LOT of drawing, making new friends, participating in contests, doing art trades, and birthday gifts~
I was also getting back to traditional art because I bought a big set of prismacolored pencils
In the late summer, I also opened commissions for the very first time, which was exciting for me!2012
: Sadly, 2012 wasn't my best year. I didn't get to draw a lot because school and personal issues were getting in the way OTL
I mostly had sloppy unfinished sketches and SAI files from that year, and I wasn't even talking to many people. My activity on this site went down A LOT
I still made some pieces that I was proud of, though, which is still a great thing2013
: A MUCH better year for me artwise. Even though I was in University and having a terrible time there, I was able to get back to drawing more ;u;
This was the year of me making pieces that I was actually SUPER proud of, and I did more fan arts and drawings of my own OCs
I felt like this was the year of me truly discovering my own style and getting back on track with my art <32014
: SO now we have less than 5 months of 2014, and I have no idea where the time went!
I've spent A LOT of this year sketching and practicing boys and making new characters
I've ALSO made a lot of pictures I've been proud of, one of them being my currently most popular picture!
The best thing about this year was returning to a picture I had abandoned last year because I wasn't good enough for it, and actually re-doing/finishing it this year
I think that's a clear sign that I've been improving a lot *A*
So I've had a pretty off and on 4 and a half years on this site. I know I used to be more active and talkative with people, and I'm sorry that's changed ;n;
Hopefully I can somehow find a balance between improving my artwork and still keeping in touch with the deviantART community like I was in 2010
A special thanks to all of my watchers and all of my friends for your endless support and encouragement!
I don't have much motivation for myself, so I don't know what I'd do without you <3
Here's to another year on this site and hopefully many more great ones!signed,AikasCupcake
