Hey guys, today is Deviantart's 14th Birthday and I am here to celebrate it by talking about my story on how I joined deviantart.

It all started back in 2010, I began searching some Sonic the Hedgehog fanart through Google Images. What I realized that some of the pictures there were fan made and they all came from this website. When I saw that anyone can join on this site, I thought it would be fun to do. What made me decide to join? Well since I was searching for some pictures from Sonic Underground , I saw some great artwork from an artist here named RianaLD. I got me really inspired the more I saw her work and it also made me motivated to do a lot of things and trying out other stuff other than Sonic fan art. So one day I messaged her by e-mail and asked her a lot of questions and how she made me inspired to draw more. I used to draw a lot when I was a kid and grew up and still enjoy drawing until this point. I wanted to prove myself if many people like to see my art since I drew traditionally in the past and a lot of my friends enjoyed it. :) So after thinking about it, I finally decided to join Deviantart in September 2011 and that's where I began.

My first digital picture I drew here on DA was my main character Domestic the Hedgehog. Domestic the hedgehog by Domestic-hedgehog
I drew a lot of Sonic fan characters back in 2010 because everyone here was doing that and I wasn't a member at the time. Out of all the characters I had, I ended up using her. She was so unmain but I bother to put here as my main character in my account. To this point, I am surprised to see how much people likes my character Domestic :D

Since I was new at the time, I was asking for other drawers to draw my characters but it was kinda difficult because a lot of people I asked for were really busy. I also started to draw some pictures in MS paint when I started in September because I didn't had Sai or Photoshop to make my pictures look good, plus I wanted to improve my drawing skills digitally. When I first got my tablet, I found it kinda difficult to draw on the computer and I almost wanted to quit and draw more on paper because it was easier, but I then decided not to give up and keep practicing and my practice paid off in the end because it now looks better. :D During October, I wanted people to know me by taking request for the whole month of October. I must say that it did the trick because not only I took request for other people, but I also met a lot of great friends around that time and they have been supportive on my work since today. Thanks guys :dummy:
Oh and during that time, that's where I met Alex :giggle:

In the beginning of 2012, I manage to finally have Paint tool Sai and started drawing pictures a lot better. Since I kept improving, I got motivated to draw more and sometimes, great artists inspire me to draw more as well. Since I was having fun drawing on Sai, I took the opportunity to take point commissions as well as Art trades. I have met more people along the way and I did started to draw MLP a little bit where I got curious to see how it will come out. Not to mention, I drew Mario characters as well but it wasn't my first time. I used to draw them a lot when I was a kid, which I can say that I was a huge Mario fan back then lol :XD: I was not at school at the time so I drew a lot that year and later in the half of the year, Alex told me that he loved me and became boyfriend and girlfriend. Ha ha ha I would never forget what happened that day. :love: Ever since I met him in 2011, he has been a great and awesome person to talk to and he is very supportive on everything I do. I am so glad and happy to have him in my life <3 I really, really hope that we get to see each other very soon!

In 2013, I kept drawing more pictures, point commissions and other stuff. There was nothing much going on since it was kinda the same as last year where I met new people. It got me thinking that I should go to college soon and move on with my life. In any event, I also started watching some flash animations on youtube and guess what? I wanted to do that as well :XD: Though I never had the time or the chance to do them because I had other stuff to do on DA. I then decided to get the Flash program and would like to animate. Who knows? Maybe I can become a good animator in the future. I like to take chances :D

Well finally in 2014, I ended up going to college in the first semester but just because I go to school, does now mean I will not continue to do art here. No way! Drawing is what I always love doing and I always enjoy it. I can't wait to finish college soon and hopefully I get to animate something in Flash so I can show it on youtube. It just takes time and patience to do all that but I know I will succeed :dummy: With everyone's support, I can do anything! :D

Oh last thing I want to mention is that at this point, Alex and I created a story since last year where we are now creating today. The story is called "Demagia: Rise of the Sapphire Kingdom" It is still in work in progress but for now, I will just be doing their designs, backgrounds, and doodles from our story. Not to mention that this is a great opportunity for me to draw humans for more practice since I wasn't good at drawing them before. :/ The story will be done in a comic so it would be better and awesome to read. I hope that you guys find the story enjoyable once I get started on it. :)

Thank you so much for reading and for your support! :dummy:

Here are five pictures that I am going to feature.

This Is for u:) (Smile) (Smile) (Smile) Read till the end it's adorable! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and I asked,"why?"...​The angel said,"angels don't watch over angels!" Twenty angels are in your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine of them are playing and one is reading this message. God has seen you struggling with some things and god says its over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in god send this to 14 friends including me, if I don't get it back I guess I'm not one of them. As soon as you get 5 replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you... Not joking. Pass this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested and god is going to fix two big things tonight in your favor. If you believe in god drop everything and pass it on TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. DON'T BREAK THIS. SEND THIS TO 14 FRIENDS IN 10 MINUTES IT'S NOT THAT HARD. WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE

So Domestic, I saw some gameplay of Yume Nikki and I thought it was pretty cool puzzles and everything are real brain teasers. But have you ever heard of the sequel Ib?
