It's dA's 14th birthday and the first one I actually am a part of to celebrate for!
I knew of dA probably around the time of my middle school days, either from friends or my brother telling me I should get one since he knew I liked to draw a lot. In hindsight, I wish I did back then, but like many artists now, I didn't think my art was worth putting up yet. Self-doubt is such a horrible barricade. High school I got better, but I don't think I ended up giving dA thought around then. I especially couldn't once college applications, SATs, etc kicked in.
I finally gave it a go and joined dA late December 2011, middle of my college undergrad. Odd time I suppose but hey, I had the courage to show off my work. "Better late than never" is something I always say. Now, after building up some skills in both traditional and digital mediums, I'm putting some more work up.
Sadly, I'm a bit lazy at the moment with uploading work but I promise to any readers/watchers, my sketchbook is still getting filled up! It'll be my 2nd fully filled sketchbook within the year.
So many plans and so many drawings to get done with too little time in the day!
