Everyone's doing it and I thought it would be fun, even though I am pretty late but still c: I won't be saying much since I am trying to make it as short and easy to read as possible.
was the first person I watched on dA. I think that's the reason I wanted to join dA after all. To contact her and learn how can I even become that good? I was amazed by her art. I always thought you couldn't draw on computer as well except using ms paint. I tried to do what I saw on paper using several tools to get the result I wanted, so I had enough time to experiment a lot with many stuff, such as markers, oil/ soft pastels, chalk, watercolours, acrylics... seriously, everything. And then I discovered that digital art existed, so I began with Open Canvas, Gimp and a mouse.Qwuzanku
was the first person I spoke to here. She was willing to help me with anything I had trouble with, so she was my first online friend EVER
. We haven't lost contact at all, and she's helped me through many difficult times as well. I still love her and owe her so much ;A; <33
and nintendog's4ever as well, had super fun with those people <33 I still love them way too much, and I am glad to see them active here and there c: I haven't lost contact with anyone and that makes me happier than ever. I was watching Wolf's Rain back then, so from horse art I went into wolf art immediately and tried my best to master their anatomy.Avokeido
was the first people of my country I've met here. We were a threesome team back then, we would MSN together almost every day, having tons of fun and RP's with them! We were also anime buddies, I'll never forget the FMA or ATLA phases we've been through. I was still trying to become better at cell-shading back then, still had no human characters, only wolves. We were learning all together and I'll never forget those amazing art moments we had!Cederin
) was the first person I've ever got into their art so damn much after Hibikio. See, at first I was like "when I be 20 I'll definitely be on that level" so I was very relaxed. But when I came across Cederin I completely lost it. She was one year older than me and her art was gorgeous in front of my eyes. That's when I began to practice harder than ever before. I had to reach her level in a way. I did what all young children would do back then. I wanted to be her friend, to learn what are those magic secrets that made her a so amazing artist. In the end, I got something even better than magic tricks that didn't exist in the first place. I made a friend, I learned how to be patient and NEVER give up, no matter what. Evoli-niceli
came afterwards and became my friend as well c: I got happy because she was the first person who ever idolized me so much, I could finally understand how Cederin was feeling about me, so I decided to return the favor and help Evoli as much as I could so she could reach the level of art she wanted to. I've finally became to grow up.. or that's what I thought.
is very precious to me. Come to think of it, we met through youtube, when I hadn't credited someone from being inspired by their picture and they told me they were going to report me. Man, I don't know what happened, but we became friends and.. woah. Did many things together as well. We've art traded many times, as well as I did my first serious RP with them through skype. I am planning to turning that rp into a mini comic one day, definitely. Thank you for being with me Tosh, I hope you'll never stop creating
are also hella rad friends of mine. I firstly got into Ray's art, then into Chiaki's. With Chiaki we have a closer bond I must say, she's very precious to me too. Thanks to Ray I was into adding more color to my pictures and sometimes I'd also do painterly style because I was influenced a lot by her c: Then I was influenced as well with Chiaki's Cell shading abilities and DAMN when she posted painterly pictures as well.. it was simply mindblowing. We've been through many difficult times together, but we've overcome everything and I believe that both me and Chiaki have proved to ourselves that we're strong enough to overcome everything
.... simply mindblowing in all ways. I concider myself very lucky to have her as my friend. I learned how to be kind thanks to her, and help all of the people who were asking my help. She taught me many things about art and illustration. I am influenced a LOT by her. Keprion
THAT PRECIOUS BABY OF ME, I watched her firstly when she was taking a break from dA for a while. When she came back we became "glowing" sisters and damn, I just enjoy her company way too much. That cutie ;A;
. Both of them inspired me to study more from life and do speedpaints to improve my art, as well as reference a LOT! I'll throw all the possible glow at them, huehuehue <33Lhuin
also influenced my life a lot. While I was drawing, I realized that age didn't matter, but the amount of time your practice and how much you're willing to improve. Lhuin was the first "famous: person I've spoke to, thanks to her I overcame my stress of talking to people with breathtaking art. I knew after that, that if I was myself even in the online world, I'd definitely make friends with many people if I tried. Internet is a hard place for stuff like that, I bet we all know that. But there's always a way to make things work, and I found mine
inspired me a LOT as well, Oha was always willing to help me out when I had some trouble with art. I haven't really asked her for advice many times, but no matter what, every time I asked her about anything, she was willing to help me out.
Last but not least, RenePolumorfous
. I am very very grateful to have met those two wonderful people. I met Rene a lot earlier, though I was already a watcher of Tamberella but I was very afraid to talk to her till almost 2 years ago. Rene taught me how to appreciate all kinds of art and find very valuable things in art pieces they might not be super flashy or hella rad looking with one look. In other words, I finally understood that effects and good looking colors is not everything in a picture. I became to watch more people who had impressive art and learned how to be influenced by them and learn from everything. As for Tambs, I don't know how to begin.. Even though she's a super busy person, she taught me how to fight with my own power, in art AND life as well. Thanks to her I understood the connection between life and art. I've grown up as a person, as a future artist as well. I do not consider myself as an artist yet, but I am slowly getting out of that amateur level. Yeah, that's something I am sure of. I am grateful to her and I truly owe her. Once again, she reminded me how it is to be a good person, and gain knowledge from anything possible. Everyone can teach you things. Thank you so much for not giving up on me. Thanks to you, I've been inspired to inspire many people as well and I'll try my best to do that, through my greatest weapon. My art
This was longer than I was planning, oh my ; v ; it's okay if you didn't make it through the end. I made this to remind some important things to myself mostly, so I don't expect anyone to read this ^^
Anyway, next to my journal and on my profile page there are the people who are very important for me, as friends or influences. I didn't include some here because I've made friends with some recently, so I hope you understand c: I STILL LOVE YOU ALL!!
THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL THE SUPPORT THOSE 5 AMAZING YEARS! I HOPE WE'LL HAVE MANY THINGS TO SHARE FOR MANY MANY MORE YEARS! BE CREATIVE AND NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
