Haha, wow.
10 years on deviantart.

I remember just stumbling onto DA one day, don'r really remember how or why. None of my IRL or online friends used it. I had been hanging around on small art forums, and a really fun oekaki board but drawing and art for me was mostly finding new cool things to do in photoshop and design insane websites with a lot of graphic heavy design and no content. :)

I remember finding www.misprintedtype.com/v4/ since my friend wanted to show me this really cool typography page and I was sold on brush grunge directly. Almost all of my first works are these images with so many different stamp brushes, I could be collecting textures and images to make into brushes for weeks, and mixing and mashing all of it together. I was hardly the first one to this (obviously) but I got really good feedback on what I did so I went on for a while. But it got old quickly and I wanted to learn how to draw and not just duplicate bits and pieces of what others had done already. So I got into illustrator, and photo manipulation and almost any other form you could create art digitaly. I wanted to try everything.

Now, we're here today 10 years later, and I think I have a pretty broad knowledge base of how to work with the tools I'm given. At 27 I might a little bit behind with my skill level in comparison to a lot of great talented people out there on the internet and DA, but I find it's now that I've come to really appreciate the process and the techniques I've learned these past 10 years. Previously I've always had the goal of the image I wanted to create and I wanted to get it out as fast as possibly with the least amount of effort. Now I thrive in the awesomeness of rendering and make things look nice, not because of a poorly executed cool concept, but taking my time and refining it until it's completely finished.

Not sure what I wanted to say with all that. But I want to thank DA and all you great artists out there for keeping me inspired and always bringing me to push myself and strive to become better.
