Alright, so I joined dA April 17, 2011, so a bit over three years ago, when I was in 8th grade, my goodness. I became interested after I had watched some animations from tenshiketsueki1000
on her youtube channel, and then I clicked a link from her youtube channel to dA, and then I was like “oH COOL, THIS LOOKS LIKE A PRETTY COOL SITE.” And then I joined and all. I didn’t really do much on the site besides watch other peoples’ art. At first I was all like “man, Imma make a comic series thing or something and it’ll be all cool” and then two chapters in and I was like “nope, not doin this” then deleted all that. I posted a couple pictures when I had first started, but didn’t really do much besides watch other peoples’ art. During the summer that year I didn’t go on dA much, and that lasted for a good while, until around the middle of freshman year.
I had been browsing dA and an OCT had caught my eye. I had found Karl from the Law of Talos OCT and I had getting really interested in joining one, so I thought I’d join an OCT called The City OCT. I’d gone into the chat room of the group, and then I had made some of my first friends on dA (I haven’t talked to any of them in years tho OTL), but what had ended up happening is I didn’t join the OCT because I sucked as much then as I do now, and probably more then, so I couldn’t finish drawing cause I was slow as frick, and I wasn’t literate as I should’ve probably been or anything. This OCT also led to me becoming interested in anthromorphic animals because of a character that was in it that I thought was really cool.
Up until the OCT, I had just drawn humans primarily, and had probably never attempted any sort of animal or anything. Then, around the end of Freshman year, I had become more active on dA, looking through more stuff and trying to post more frequently or whatever, and then I had found some warriors art, and I was like “oh wow, warriors seems like something that looks pretty cool” then I found the SSS warriors animation and was like “Oh WOW, WARRIORS” so then I had gotten the first book from the library, and had started to draw cats. Shortly after I had gotten into warriors, I had gotten interested in roleplaying, but I hadn’t actually thought about doing it or anything.
I had watched some warriors groups and then, I had found a picture of Nobuo in there, and then thought it was a pretty awesome picture, and then I looked into the group and was like “oH wow, this looks awesome!” so then that was probably early September of 2012. I read the journals and then asked some questions, and then I was like “Imma try to join this” and then I had started making a character and everything. So then January of 2013 came, and I had created a character and everything, and I’m sure most people know this, but Cyrus had originally for Shadow-Tribe, and he was also as blue as the sky, and he got rejected first tribe, so then I went for Fire-Tribe and he got accepted
. TGB wasn’t my first rp group that I had joined though, I was accepted into OSAC with Leaftail about a week prior to that, although, I’m not sure how I made it in with him, his history wasn’t very well writtin and when I read it now, I’m like “?????”
But Ayyyy, TGB. I wasn’t too active in the chats the first month or two because I didn’t have any access to the chats because the school blocked it and I wasn’t allowed on the comp at home (?????) but then I got internet on this comp and was all like “AYYYYYY” Shortly after getting internet, I was like “ALRIGHT, IMPROVE ART CAUSE I SUCK, AND LIKE, EVERYONE IN TGB IS FRIGGIN AWESOME, AND GOTTA CATCH UP TO EVERYONE” and so I drew and then had the most improvement in that amount of time, than any other time I’ve drawn, so that was gr8
Hmm… that was about a year ago now. There’s been a lot of good things that have happened in the past year. I’ve made so many good friends, and best friends, (and a GF *INTENSE SWAGGLING OF EYEBROWS AT Sophister*
) and it’s just awesome to have every one of them
Also took me until 2 days ago to get to 100 watchers AYYYYYY B)
dA, especially for the past year and a half, has changed me so much, and although it can cause lots of stress and frustrations sometimes, I believe that it’s been for the better.
Alright, now that’s over //casually goes back to procrastinating on stuff that I should be doing//
