But that doesn't mean I'm completely lost: I've drawn and written a bit these few weeks, and I plan to post fanart any time soon. Now I'm using my brother's mac, and things have been easier for me. I've finally cleaned my inbox filled with messages, and without further a do, let's dive into the past to know my dA story!! ^^
I've known deviantart ever since I got my first laptop, although I only searched for art of Naruto, Sonic and KH back then. When I finally decided to make an account, it didn't work that well, and I ended up deactivating that previous account of mine. A year later, however, still interested in the website, I made a new account, with the name I had based on one of my favorite kagerou project songs: HeadphoneActor! That name was already taken, so I put HeadphoneActress12, twelve being the age I had at the time. I knew some artists already, so I watched them, slowly finding out more about dA.
And then, one fateful day, my mother gave me watercolor for me to paint my drawings with, and I tried it almost immediately. This is what came out of it.
My first submission and watercolor painting. Now that I look at it, it's kinda bad XD But it sure didn't seem like back then... Experimenting with watercolors and finding out features in dA, games and new artists... It was the beginning of it all, of this account you guys support and like.
Either they were traditional... Drawing the things I loved most at the time... (POTC, Harry Potter, Anime, Vocaloid)
Or just me fooling around in other things...
It was what I did mostly. Even though those traditional drawings were based on other drawings I'd seen with different characters, It didn't matter if I got few comments or favorites. Anything would suffice and make my day.
And then I met and , two of my real life best friends. They didn't draw as well as I did, but neither did I compared to others. They drew different, but they understood me. And that mattered. Mary liked anime, like me, and I eventually introduced her to a lot of things (Like Vocaloid, the only thing she's more obsessed about xD) But most importantly, dA. Both her and LPS (who already knew about it) eventually joined in, and I saw both their styles get better, as we exchanged matters here and there. I felt more apart of this community, I felt more responsible of my account. But eventually, the things I would draw would slighty change.
In the last months of 2012, I discovered Pewdiepie from one of my real life friends, , who shared my likes of Eddsworld and Harry Potter. And this swedish youtuber was a new window in my life. Learning more about his bro army, I showed him to every friend of mine that did not know, and my contents slowly started to change:
Although I still had some shreds of my POTC geekiness and gifts for my friends, I began to dive into the world of youtube gaming through Pewdiepie and his hilarious adventures through all of these horror games. Finding out about Stephano, Piggeh, Mr. Chair, Barrels, Cry and every colorful character he met or made up with his jokes and high screams.
Learning about RPG horror games like Yume Nikki, Misao, Mad Father and Ib thanks to both Pewds and Cry...
Being a big fan of manga and comics, I tried to give it a shot and I came up one of my most successful comics:
Ib: You and me, Rendezvous. And yes, I know I never finished it, and that EVERYONE was itching for me to continue it, but I just got too lazy to do it. But to anyone out there waiting for it, I tell you: I will promise to remake it and finish it for good. I love the story, and I am so happy to have had the courage to actually draw it. I'm not saying this year, but definitely not that far away. ^^
With some anime, vocaloid and Kagerou Project temporary phases, time passed, when I came across with a series called Once upon a time, and I fell in love in a couple in special.
Rumbelle. It practically destroyed my life XD It was the main cause of me not drawing much of my Ib doujinshi. It had been the first time I had drawn so much of one couple, and I really owe it, because it was the first step of trying to evolve a less mangaish style. But, eventually I got over them too.
With a bit of a randomness phase of anime and finding out new games thanks to Pewdiepie, my knowledge about gaming became even more extent as my style was starting to change bit by bit.
Alice: Madness Returns and The Last of Us, two of Pewds's vast story series, quickly became my favorite games. But then I was swallowed in the world of BLEACH, obsessing about the vizards mostly, while I got my first indian ink bottle and began experimenting with it.
In the summer vacation of 2013, I started reading The Fellowship of the Ring. I had already seen the movies, but the book made me want to watch it again. And that's how my undying love for Boromir and Faramir started.
And around that time, I also began using tumblr far more often, and my blog quickly turned into a LOTR/The Hobbit blog. Searching through all the fan art I could find, I came across , who became one of my absolute favorite web artists. Not only that, she was a huge inspiration, as most of my LOTR drawings were based on what she did. Thanks to her, I also learned how to draw men even better, because up until then, they all look skinny and not burly at all.
I've mentioned her in some of my art ^^ She's also the one responsible for me starting to ship Durincest XD (KiliFili)
Anyway, moving on, it was also around that time I started to use coloured pencils with the watercolors, mostly because I couldn't make skin color with watercolors.
By the time it was Christmas, and I got my metal box of carandache pencils, I suddenly came to realize how much useful they were blended with the watercolors. And that began the current phase I'm on:
And of course, let's not forget the EzioLeo fanart, also a huge part of my deviant art story
