I was first introduced to dA when a friend of mine made a piece of artwork for me and uploaded it onto dA to show it to me. I didn't think much of dA at the time. I just looked at the picture, downloaded it and that was that.
Then, whenever I wanted to find pictures on any particular subject, a lot of my Google search results led me to different people's deviations. That's when I realised that there was a vast amount of artwork on almost every subject available to view on dA and so I bookmarked dA.
I would browse artworks and photographs in my spare time, but after a while, I noticed that I was forgetting the deviants for some of my favourite artworks and I thought that it would be good if I could keep a track of all the deviants that I liked, and also all the deviations that I liked. So I made my dA account and added things to my favourites. I wasn't planning on uploading art to my account just then.
A good few months later, I wrote a little piece, and I wanted to be able to share it with some friends, so I decided to upload it to my dA. That was my first deviation. But apart from that one piece of writing, I uploaded nothing else.
A while later, I received a note from a deviant telling me I should not just favourite people's art, but upload some of my own art work too. So shortly after that, I uploaded my first drawing onto dA.
And recently, I have been doing chibi commissions on a game site that I go on, so I have been uploading art more regularly. And I guess that's all there is to my story~
Happy 14th Birthday dA!
