Seeing how the best way to party on this site today seems to be to tell your DA story I'mma join in on this hot party action!
So! DA story time! (So many explanation marks )
Now I know there's gonna be some of you out there thinking, "S.S, what DA story? You've only been on here for a year you goof."
That's true, but I've always looked on this site for advice and inspiration since I started drawing all those years ago. And it's because of two users on this site that I became an artist~
I found these two around 6th grade and their work just inspired me so much and made me want to create. For the rest of middle school I drew a butt ton and tried making my own stories. None of them really lasted for long, I'd just get bored of the idea or characters. That was untill in 7th grade, when I got the idea for Grimora. Somehow I didn't drop this story. This story was special, and so it lived. It's blossomed into something I would have never even dreamed of back then and I am so happy I never did scap this story.
Anywaysss tho, I never did end up making a DA account until recently for a few reasons.
1.) I just didn't feel like my stuff was good enough to be on this site for the longest time
2.) I wanted to do digital stuff for this site, and it wasn't until 8th grade that I could.
And 3.) I just had this strange idea to only make an account once I started High School. but once I did get my tablet I figured, "Ayy it's DA time here and now," and so made an account quickly after I could manage my tablet decently. :V
Before my account I sorta just ... stalked pages of artist I liked I guess. And now with my account I can still do that, but without the hassle of checking every few weeks only to see they haven't updated ohohoho
There's also the plus that this site has helped me improve and find great new artist as well as gotten me to explore the art community~
But ay, here's to more years of improvement for all of us, happy B-day DA~
