So apparently some people are posting up their DA stories today in honor of Deviantart's 14th birthday, so I figured why not! Seems like a nice idea (andalsoIhaven'tpostajournalentryinforeversorry)

Let's see, where to start... Well I joined a whole seven years ago (probably coming up on eight in a few months really) and I was in my first year of middle school (aka the third worst year of my life) and for some reason pretty much everyone in my grade was making deviantart accounts. Looking back on it I'm still not really sure why, since almost none of them were artists or had any interest in art all. I was hooked pretty quick and even after everyone else in seventh grade had lost interest I was still hanging around.

I didn't actually start posting art until like a year later when I actually figured out how to use a scanner though XD And for a long time I mostly posted pokemon, some RP wolf characters, and my neopet characters. Those neopet characters gradually shifted into the OCs I have today. I always think it's funny to go digging through the bowels of my gallery and find old art of Nova when I still had her age set at 17 for some reason X3 Thinking back though I also did a lot of art for the Warriors series and my silly fan made clans. And for a couple years that's all my account was; OCs and talking with the handful of friends I had.

AND THEN. PONIES.

I don't remember when exactly MLP crashed into my life, but I do recall that the seventh episode Dragonshy had just come out so I was in it pretty damn early! Part of what I liked about the show was that I could draw the characters, as silly as that sounds. My few attempts at humans were mediocre at best and thanks to neopets and pokemon most of what I had been drawing was either some kind of animalish thing or an anthro. I liked drawing ponies and I think I was pretty good at them! I also did a lot of work of :iconalexwarlorn: and his POV series, which garnered my art more attention then it had ever had.

MLP was a really big part of my high school experience and was a big comfort during my first tumultuous semester of college, but about halfway through my second year I did kind of find myself drifting away from it. It hasn't really inspired me artistically in quite awhile, though I still enjoy the show.

Homestuck, as probably all of you have noticed, has recently become my newest inspiration and it's really the first time I've ever really drawn human characters (thank you college drawing classes!) But who knows? Maybe I'll end up drifting away from that too in a few years, especially with the threat of the final act looming on the horizon. The very, very, very distant horizon.

And that's my story!
