My deviantART Story

Origins of an author


This looked fun, so I'm doing it as well. :B

Before joining dA, I was a member of fanfiction.net's community.  There, I had been a fan of a number of stories that were written in both the Sonic and Mario universes and I wanted to bring my works there as well.  Through there, I came across a few users that had their own galleries here.  I had also encountered a bunch of great art from other artists here.  I had browsed around extensively for a few months before I decided to bring my works here as well to see what people would think of them.

I still easily remember the first artist I watched here, :iconanjilasaurus:  Her Yoshi works at the time were just fantastic.

While I pretty much went on a big watching spree upon joining, some of the other artists I remember being amongst the first I watched were :iconardwick: and :iconrowiehz:

The first thing I did with my gallery was post everything in a quartet that I had written at the time.  The series involved a mixture of Mario, Sonic and Star Fox characters.  I had long since removed the stories as I can barely stand to look at them anymore, but I do believe that an artist should not forget their first steps.

I had also set forth to be heavily involved in the community in any way I can.  Whether it was my watching/faving sprees, suggesting things for DDs, creating the list of Yoshian Guardians or taking part in clubs, I wanted to be a part of the community.

That would eventually lead me to bringing Secret Santa events here.   I originally started them on the old YoshiArt Forums and after their success, I wanted to get the community involved here as well with them.  The first one was a major success and I believed that most those involved had a great time with the event.  Sadly, as the years passed, the interest dwindled until I canceled it last year.  That's okay though.  Some things are destined to end and it was great while it lasted.  Today I still continue to try and be involved with the community in some way or another.

As the years went by while I was here, I really started to find my passion for the art of writing.  Creating characters, worlds and tales was always an exhilarating experience and I loved it when I saw people enjoy them.  Yes, there was never many at its highest point, but even then, I was entertaining at least some.  In the end, as long as I made at least one person happy with the works I presented, then I was perfectly satisfied.

I also took pride in the many friendships that I was starting to establish through the community.  Many of them started when I first joined here.  Some started through YAF and then moved to here.  Regardless, I cherished the bonds that I was making.  I worked to make sure that I could help my friends in any way possible.  The goal to make them all happy was always there.

As much as I would love to mention all the great friends that I have made over these last eight years, there would be too many to mention and I'd rather not risk forgetting any of them.  You know who you are though.:)

This place also gave me the chance to meet several fellow users in real life, each providing a fantastic chance to meet a new person and further establish friendships.

The first ones I met were :iconchibipunk7231: and :iconbattosai8055:.  I had wanted to commission chibipunk for a drawing of my characters, Midnight and Laura.  We met one day at the local mall.  Not only was a deal made, but a great friendship was established.

I met with :iconbrute-force06: some time later.  We got the chance to hang out and play some games together, which was always a great time.

A couple years ago, I set out on a trip to San Antonio, where I would hang out with :iconneonoirex: :iconabyay: and :iconbreakingcloud: over the course of a week.  It was a fantastic time and while the trip did cause some stress for us all leading up to it, it was worth it in the end.  Eventually I wouldn't mind making another such trip one day.  However, for now, I have other priorities that must be taken care of.

As you can see, I have done many things while I have spent my time here on deviantART.  Yes, the last couple years have been very quiet for me, but the memories are always there.  The many friendships I have established, the unlocking of abilities and passion for writing, and all the experiences that I have gotten the chance to see all culminate into one grand time here in this community.  There is probably more that I can say about my time here on dA, but I think now is a good time to wrap this up.  So enjoy some of the many pics that I have received as gifts, trades or commissions over the years!
