My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 6:09 PM
Reaching Out by Kirona
I drew this picture to show, in a way, what I felt like back when I first joined dA, and what finding IamAnthro did for me.

I joined deviantART years and years ago under this account, but I was 16 and nervous, and tended mostly to lurk.  Eventually I stopped coming onto the site, only to return about two years later.  I couldn't remember my password here, so I created another account and, from there, joined dAmn - the deviantART messaging network - to actually interact with people.  There, I found IamAnthro, the official chatroom for anthro-related art.

Over the next several years, I managed to regain access to this account, and moved back permanently.  I kept going on dAmn, and IamAnthro became my "home" online.  I ended up promoted to a moderator position - and later, to the Senior Moderators group.  There were some rough times, sure, but it's still my home and I'm still happy to be involved in the community in that way.

I've honestly been somewhat of a lurker otherwise here on dA.  I don't comment on things very much, nor do I post in the forums.  I'm honestly surprised about how active I am on the chat network, really - I have some issues with anxiety, and that keeps me from saying things most anywhere.  But chatting has let me make a number of friends, and while some of them have moved on from dAmn, or from dA altogether, I'm still glad to have met them, just like I'm glad to know those I still keep in touch with, whether through dAmn or other means - Skype, Steam, and so on.

Year Two by CodyTehFox
CodyTehFox and his boyfriend StargazerBleu.  Two very good friends of mine I met - Cody through dAmn, and Bleu through Cody :meow:

Among the friends I've made on dAmn is Cody, who's probably my best friend an' things x3  He came onto dAmn a while back, and I was about, and we became friends rather quickly.  We've kept in touch over a long time, including a good period when Cody wasn't on dAmn at all anymore, for various reasons.  He's one of the few people who I've kept in good touch with even after they've left dAmn, actually.

In Quietness by AlectorFencer
A piece by AlectorFencer, an artist I admire very much.

Being on deviantART has shown me a number of amazing artists, such as AlectorFencer, whose art is well beyond what I can do myself - and, depening on how things go, quite possibly beyond what I'll ever be able to do.  But on the other hand, it's inspiring, and helps motivate me to keep working on my art.  If others can make such beautiful works, and if they can actually make a living off of their art, then there's a chance that I can too, eventually.

It's MURDER by squeedgemonster
A piece by squeedgemonster, another favorite artist of mine

Another artist I've run across is SqueedgeMonster - though admittedly, I found her through other sources, not on dA itself initially.  Still, her work is amazing, and reminds me that it's possible to make great art using cel-style shading, lots of stylization, and bright, fun colors.

Takeflight by darknatasha
darknatasha, yet another artist whose works I admire, made this piece

DarkNatasha is one of the first artists I came across on deviantART - and, admittedly, I found her via other means as well.  She, along with Jennadelle (an artist who's no longer on dA), created the art that got me interested in the furry community to start with.  And they also brought me here to dA - while this site isn't the center of furry activity, really, it's still a pretty decent hub, and has the benefit of attracting other great people too.

Jelly Head by VengefulSpirits
A picture by VengefulSpirits, whose art - and amazing improvement - I've been watching for years

VengefulSpirits is someone I've followed here (and on a few other sites) for a long time now.  Watching her skills develop, and her art improve, has been amazing, and is a great example of how even a great artist started somewhere less great.  And you have to admit, almost every artist started out not being "amazing" at art, talent or no talent.  It takes practice, and dedication, to become really good at this stuff.

Well, that's about all I have to say here x3  I hope everyone has a wonderful day :)
