HELLO IM ALIVE
Holy shit look at dA being 14?? I remember when I first came on here, alllll the way back in 2007.
I was 13, and I had lived on Neopets prior. I wanted to be on this site so bad, but I told myself that I wouldn't join until I had a tablet and photoshop. And when I finally did, I was so excited (and utterly scared) to be here!
It was lonely and intimidating at first, but then someone watched me that made me stay. :iconemone", out of no where, watched a silly little 13 year old like me. It was that moment that I remember so vividly that I made the promise to stay and continue drawing.
Then I met a girl by the name of and her friend, . Back in that day, online friends was such a strange and new thing, and I couldn't believe I could talk to people all the way back in England on good old MSN! And then came , who I did so many trades with I can't even pick a number.
And then came ...Wowy. 2008. This girl has shaped me into the person I am now, whether she knows it or not. I'm still really good friends with her and even after months of no contact, she flew all the way cross country to go to a con with me. It's amazing and I thank this site for everything with our friendship <333
And then magic began to happen....people were looking at my stuff...and liking it! I was no longer just posting for myself, people were actually asking for my art, they told me they were fans, people I didn't even know. And then they wanted to commission me, something I never thought could happen. And I still get so happy and glowy when I do get commissioned, although now its mostly on FA, I know that it was you guys here that were with me from the start, and i thank you for everything!!!!
Then 3 years ago I ran into , finding out that all this time we'd been creeping each others art, but were too scared to talk to each other. We joined PA and made two characters that I couldn't love any more if I tried. And I made a best friend who I couldn't be more happy with if I tried QuQ
SO THANKS DA! Thanks for all the years, thanks for all the opportunity, and more than anything, thanks for all the people. All thee artists I've met, all the friends I've made, and all the laughs I've had. Thanks for all the support from everyone on here, thanks for all the love <3
I want to start posting here again, because I forget that this is where young little skai started.
