First of all, I want to say Happy 14th Birthday DeviantArt!!!
Well, I see that many people are doing this, so why not? This is gonna be a (quite boring) story of when I first joined in, about 2 years ago.
In 2012, I had just turned 13. I discovered this site through internet searches for "Fakemon", and I created this account just to be able to comment, fav and watch an amazing artist I found. And like that, I created my DA account the 31st of October.
In the beginning, I just browsed and faved Fakemon art, until I started uploading a bit of my own (crappy art, I must say).
Eventually, I made some friends who were in the Fakemon Community, and it was like that for a few months.
During that time, I met with a remarkable artist, tjmoonstudios. He introduced me to PMD RP groups, and he encouraged me to join Poke-Heroes-Guild, which I ultimately did.
I was a 13 year old idiot with no drawing skills, only in there for the experience. I think that my DeviantArt story began there, when I first made my real internet friends.
I eventually joined other groups, most of them failed or I quit, but it's been more than a year since I joined Poke-Heroes-Guild and that was the best thing that I could've possibly done. Because through that group I met my friends.
I have to say that I would not be the (slightly smarter) idiot that I am today without these incredible people:
, , , , , , , , , and even
Even if they don't know it, they've taught me most of what I know today, and they have been the best teachers/friends/mentors/anything that I've ever had. I don't know how to thank them, so just consider yourselves thanked, or something .
Anyways, that's my story. I think. Thanks for reading. I don't blame you if you didn't.
