I joined dA 6-7 years ago, when I was 12 I had been observing artist and others for at least a year before i finally decided to join this lovely site! Granted this isn't my first account but here's where it starts off. I has mostly found my way to dA throught my love of mythical creatures and wolves, I especially adored werewolves and lions and animals seeing so many people like and really inspired me to get going with art, there's SO MANY deviants i could name that have inspired me I could write at least two pages with the names of all of the deviants who's art i simply adore.
I chose these images in particular because they were the first images I saw of werewolves that truly looked like something realistic, and they really did inspire to start drawing wolves and dragons and many fantasy creatures [granted I've yet to get any better at it I swear I've made no progress in years] But they were the first images to inspire me and truly let me believe I could draw so much more than what I have in these years. [I'm still stuck in the I can't draw delusion because I've yet to reach the level I desire, I've become very harsh of a critic on myself which I think can be very counter productive.]
Another one of my great inspirations apart from is
This particular piece is one of my all time favorites because of the clear emotions shown in the characters, it really helps me to strive to get better at expressing all kinds of emotions with my drawings. All in all I've had a big amount of inspirations with a wonderful journey but i still have a very long way to go until I get better.
Either way back to my journey I drew quite a lot when I was twelve mostly lions and wolves, this isnt my first account on deviantart, so I do not have those images here, they are saved somewhere but no longer here. I had a lot of time to draw during school and outside of it but i feel like I've never really taken advantage of all of the time I've had up until recently when I've been drawing more so than ever before my gallery has over 100 submissions something I didn't have before.
My decision to change accounts came out of the fact I felt like I wasn't really living up to much of my potential although now I feel as that clean start to get away from whom I was in the past an immature kid might've also been bad for me, I still feel a bit unaccomplished as an artist because of my lack of commissions,and although I have been commissioned and I adored doing them for very fair prices, it seems I still cant get any kind of commissions going. I guess I still don't stand out enough to be commissioned yet. I'll be sure to work on becoming a more desired artist somehow. I still don't know what I'm doing wrong but I guess I'll figure it out one day. I'm currently on a break because of this very reason in fact, I wish to make a living out of art, being unable to get started on that is severely disappointing to me because I keep trying and trying and I'm failing quite a bit, a little too much if you ask me...but oh well. Maybe some day soon someone will commission me.
Id give you a preview of my last two year journey but its all in storage currently but if it ends up by popular demand I will remove things from storage and make them public once more.
