I have found deviantArt at a time when I have also discovered photoshop, gimp and paintool SAI and thought of making drawing mainstream of my career. By profession, I am an Agriculturist, but it was art that always helped me to sail away, often from reality. I believe that given the time, right education, and keeping my goals in mind, I will soon be what I really want to be, a graphic artist con fashion designer. Through my membership here, I have discovered a gazillion of artworks, ones that I truly admire and ones that I would really want to draw myself. I am just awestruck by how individuals who started from scratch were transformed into promising artists and how they share their knowledge without hesitation or reservations. Here I am reminded always to practice, continue to practice. So, in my spare time, I really spend time to do so. I do not know yet if I'm gonna make it big on this one, but I believe that if I pursue excellence, success will surely follow and I'm looking forward to that. My inspiration are the people in deviantArt who do not think they are 'little' but simply, a 'work-in-progress' because that way, I'm not limiting myself into a tiny space of unfounded insecurity. Somehow, with the help of fellow deviants, I am sure to progress. Thank you deviantArt, you are one cool friend! Here's the line up of artworks I've included on this journal.
The first one is my OC Melorry, well, if there's something I have found most amazing in deviantart, its the proliferation of original characters that highlight one's individualism as an artist. Truly I am delighted that artists here don't simply copy art from others, but make their own unique artwork and are proud of it.
The second one is a piece from a 30-day drawing challenge I found on deviantArt, and this is the first day challenge: 'my persona'.
The 3rd artwork is my Pokemon girl Hypno, one that garnered the most views on all my artwork on deviantart. I never thought that one of my work would actually reach 1000+ views, after all, I'm not that good...well I believe not yet.
The 4th one is Monette, one of my sketchbook drawings. I just want to celebrate traditional art and digital art mash-up. That's because deviantArt is not fully traditional nor digital, it is individualistic, as in 'do what you like' type of thing, something that I am really thankful for as an artist.
