First I would like to point out that I'm just doing this for fun ....... and it may be short
So I discovered DA when I was saving alot of Sonic Pictures and when I went to the original, it would always lead me to DA. In Feb 7, 2009
, I finally made an account but that was it. I never really uploaded anything nor touched the account. I forgot that I even made an account until I came back to the site. During that time, I was mostly on my Youtube account doing nothing, beside looking around how to drawing things. On September 12, 2009 my first OC fan sonic character was uploaded because I finally got a scanner.
Sadly she hasn't made another appearance since, but she's still around. This was around when I was in middle school.
Here's a 2009 pictures I uploaded around that time.
After just uploading some scan pictures, a friend of my dad gave me photoshop and once after fooling around with it. I started to draw an scan pictures in it. And because I had no "life" I was uploading around 2-5 pictures in one day in 2010 but since some were mixed between sketched I uploaded things out of order. This was also the year that Diamond's wolf family was born. Along with others, but this was the year where I was recoloring Sonic X frames, but it was thanks to that I have my fan Characters today. During this time I was still in middle school around 8th grade. I was drawing everyday during my first years on DA but also in this time, my parents were bugging me about spending too much on drawing and it was a waste of time. But because of that I decided to keep drawing on paper and on Photoshop. This was also the year I discovered a person called KeiraWinstanley
sadly she's no longer around on DA ..... that I know of, but it was because of her and her character Keira the Wolf, Diamond was created as well. Along with Keira, I found
by Youtube, CosmaTheSeedrian
back when she use to do Cosma videos, a recolor of Cosmo. Which was something I loved to watch :3 But because of her, she was my first person I entered a contest in [sadly it wasn't until February 14, 2011 I finally clicked the watch button ]
Another person who I found by Youtube goes by the name of
It was also because of her, I wanted to get better and reach her level of skills. And that's when I started to work hard on using Photoshop.
During that time I also found
and started to follow her, but back then she was on a different account, which is no longer around. And many others. April 27, 2010
was also when I got my first watcher. The year 2010, had a lot of things happen to my, here and my outside life. I gain friends, one of them was
Who was the only one that got me into RPing, which was a lot fun :3 During this year I also made a group
but sadly it didn't go so well and while a year I deleted it.Here's some 2010 pictures I uploaded around that time.
Through out the 2011, I got into the Sondow wave l3 but it was because of this, I found who I fell in love of her drawings and Ecco Hedgephin. But because of her, I was even more determine to draw Sonic more and to improve more. In the middle of 2010, I met when I in my second ? year of high school. Believe it or not, it was her that I decided to reach out more on my drawings, rather than just drawing Sonic Characters, I wanted to draw more into the Anime kind. So that's when I drew more humans and to get better and maybe pass her in skill level, [sorry my friend but you know how I am :3] It was also this year, alot of drama happen in my life, fighting with friends, trying to get friends to stop fighting. Sometimes being out of the loop or ignored by and :iconCreature-Of-Civiltiy:
. Many things happen in mid 2010-11. These were also the years when I wanted to become an animator and that's when I started to animate things, but sadly never really followed through on finishing them. That was because I saw others who were the same age as me but then were much better on animating than me. That's stoped me for couple of months before I went back to it and started to upload them on my Youtube, but very little.
Here's some mid 2010-now pictures I uploaded around that time.
Well that's mostly my DA Story, the rest of 2011-13 was kinda the same with drama, meeting , watching other people here on Da. Improving on my art and will always be improving.
Thanks to all of the people that inspired me to keep going and to never give up on what I love to do. KeiraWinstanley
And to many more
