It was about two years ago when I got my first DeviantART account. My friend had been showing me DA, and it looked really awesome to me. I was somewhere around 11-12 years of age, so I still felt the need to ask my parents for permission to get an online account. When I did ask them, they said "We'll think about it." If you've ever had parents, then you'll most definitely know that they probably never thought about it again.
I thought, "What the heck?" and just got a DA account anyways. I don't even remember the username I chose, but I know it was something really stupid that I later regretted. I think it had something to do with unicorns...*shrugs* Ah, well. Anyways, I barely posted anything on there, and the stuff that I did
post were really crude, mediocre drawings. Keep in mind that my parents still
didn't know that I had a DA, so I had to keep it secret all the time. I managed to gather, like, 5 watchers or something stupid like that. Wait, I just remembered! My username was WeirdUnicornPerson.
Yeah, I still regret it.
Eventually, I was using DA only for looking at my notifications and nothing else. I was scared to upload anything for fear that my parents would realize I have a DA, and would get mad at me, seeing as they'd flipped out when they'd found out I have a G-Mail. Around this time was when I had my own little renaissance--I was drawing more, and my drawings were getting better and better. My parents saw this, and said, "Wow, these are great drawings!" (When in reality they were actually pieces of crap.) One day they suggested, "You should get a DeviantART, because these drawings are turning out awesome!
" On the inside, I was sarcastically laughing like a maniac, and my eye almost twitched--I already had
a DA! Granted, it was a real bad account, and I never used it, and I figured that I would feel better and less like a traitor if I simply got another account, so I did! I deleted WeirdUnicornPerson
(ugh, why?) and created Monochrome-Crystal
(I'm actually thinking of changing this username too once I get a Premium, because I don't like it. Plus, there's a popular person on here with that exact name except without the hyphen, so I feel like I'm using their light.)
Since then, I've gathered 13 watchers, and this account is definitely blossoming more than the other. And I'm glad of it!
At the moment, my deviation with the most favs is this one:
. I must say, I am quite proud of it. I put lots of effort into it, trying to get the proportions correct and all that stuff. I even remember a little girl watching me as I drew this, and it made me feel a little proud that someone
could appreciate my work. I'm sure that if I drew Cadence now, I'd do a better job, but I'm still proud!
At the moment, my most viewed deviation is this one:
. Ah, how I love Shimmer. She's undoubtedly one of my favorite OCs. Mind you, she isn't a Mary Sue, and recently I've been trying to make a better effort of making her personality less plain, less perfect, because the fact that she's an alicorn makes it hard to tell people that she isn't a Sue. But I can't make her any other way, because it makes a lot more sense to the storyline when she's an alicorn (yes, there is a fanfiction with her in it, written by me. If you want me to post it on here, tell me, because at the moment I don't feel confident enough with it). But anyways, I do like this drawing. I feel like I could've done a better job with the proportions though. *shrugs* Ah, well. The past is in the paaaaaaaaaast! Let it go! Let it goooooo!
My personal favorite deviation are these:
. The first one because it's colored, I put a lot of effort into it, and despite what you say, it isn't that violent!
Trust me when I say this. My standards for mature filter are: If I felt sick while drawing it, then it needs mature content! If I felt perfectly normal, then there's no need for the filter. If those aren't your standards, then feel free to report me. I'm overall real proud of that first one. As for the second one, I always felt this nightly chill while drawing it, and even now I feel this ethereal peace peace while looking at it. I really
love the shading I put on that one, and how it kind of looks real. I really, really love it.
So, I suppose that was my DeviantART story! Hopefully I'll be able to upload more things in the future! That includes literature (fanfictions and excerpts from my stories), My Little Pony, and possibly even anime... Ahaha, well, toodles!
