I'm seeing a ton of these here in dA, so I figured why the hell not?
I joined deviantART in August 2012. My reason for joining was so I could show people other than my family my artwork. I wasn't very social, because I was rather new to dA, but if I hadn't broken out of my shell, I wouldn't have made awesome friends like Tsuki-Nekota and uberdan!
At first, I didn't think people would like my art. It's kind of expected, like when you're the new kid in school and you're worried nobody will like you. But I said "Screw it" and posted some art. I saw that people liked what I did, so I kept on doing it. And that led me to the 34 watchers I have today.
DeviantART changed my life. It kinda gave me a confidence boost in a sense. I socialized a lot more, and also spread the word about my account while I was at it. Some still said my art sucked, but those people couldn't draw any better anyways.
That, folks, is my DeviantART story. What's yours?
