My Deviant Art Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 2:17 PM
Profile | Gallery | Inbox


Edit: I did one of these for my other account too: My Deviant Art StoryI did this over at my other account :icondragondoodle: so I thought I'd do it over here too.
If you're interested in the full story go here:
This account was started so that I could have a place for my artwork related to my story. I initially didn't want it on my main account because I was incredibly insecure about what I was doing and felt like I just needed a safe place to put everything in case my computer died (which actually happened so it was a good idea). I never thought I'd share my story, nor did I think I'd gain many watchers beyond the few people I'd felt comfortable enough to share my story with.
I started this account in 2008 and my first picture was this one:
Just a nice picture of Raghnall and Eriantielle, the past rulers of my story.
 In the beginning I mostly just did pictures from the bits that I was writing and shared a few snippets of the script in prose:


I took to DA rather slowly. I wasn't a digital artist at all but a friend of mine got me involved with a Horror/Sci-Fi e-magazine in 2003 and I found myself doing illustrations for the stories. It was fun and I enjoyed having my art on the web for the first time.
Alas, the e-zine disappeared and I decided I wanted to have my pictures online somewhere else. Someone (I can't even remember who now) suggested I go onto DA.

My first picture posted was this one: Survival by dragondoodle
I look at it now and the sheer inexperience with using a computer is obvious. I think I used a mouse to draw with and used filters on a picture of myself. Really weird to look at now.

After posting all the stuff I felt I could from the e-zine I sort of forgot about DA for a while (I gave birth to my son so I think that can be excused). I posted some jewelry and gifts but I only had 4 followers and was fairly quiet.

In 2006 I became brave enough to enter my first DA contest. I didn't win but I was rather proud of the entry at the time: Iso, King of the Mountain by dragondoodle

In 2007 an online friend :icondragonpress: needed some filler strips for her bards comic. I volunteered because I was feeling like I needed to do more artistic stuff. I did a ten strip stretch based on a song by the people in the strip, again, I was rather proud of it at the time: Happily Ever After 1 by dragondoodle

In 2008 I found :iconsaintfighteraqua: and discovered someone who loved the original Oz books as much as I did. This was amazing to me that I could find like minded people in a place like dA. I made art and started having discussions in the comments of artwork for the first time. It was a breakthrough for me! Ozma by dragondoodle

I started working on my own story and made a new dA for it so that I could have only a select few watch my story (since I was nervous about sharing it at first) so in 2008 :icongirl-n-herhorse: became a reality. My first picture there was this one  The King and Queen by girl-n-herhorse

Things were still pretty quiet until 2009. I was lurking around on dA and discovered :icondestinyfall:'s stories. This was a HUGE step for me. Suddenly I was fangirling over stuff. I found others through her gifts and commissions and discovered I could become friends online! People approached me in notes when I went to their pages and some of those people I'm still friends with :aww: I made fanart for my new friends,
 :icondestinyfall:Super Loken by dragondoodle,
:iconwinterelf86:Gabriel - after a fight by dragondoodle, and
 :iconrivisindigoemporium: Lucette and Cloud by dragondoodle
I even gently encouraged two of them to collab on a story that I made illustrations for :giggle: Mael by the Ear by dragondoodle
My grasp of digital art was starting to improve slowly in 2010 and making gift art was really helping encourage my muse. :aww: I did art requests and more gifts and generally had a great time getting to know people. I started RPing with people I'd met on dA and became even closer friends with a few, making art of the RP's I was involved with and even did art trades.
:icondestinyfall: Carried Away by dragondoodle
 :iconwinterelf86:Shower Time by dragondoodle
:iconalex-weiss:Roaring 20's by dragondoodle
:iconcaptain-savvy:Sybil and Denton by dragondoodle
Encouraged by the fact that people were actually liking and reacting to my art I was determined to make my story into a comic, so I posted the first cover near the end of 2009 First Comic Cover - Beginnings by girl-n-herhorse and the first page in the beginning of 2010 G and her H Page 1 by girl-n-herhorse

I'm now up to page 76! G and her H Page 76 by girl-n-herhorse

So dA did a lot for me. It got me doing more art, encouraged me to connect with people online, and it took me places I never thought I'd go, like Boston Anime! :giggle: All in all I've made amazing friends and met fantastic people on dA and I wouldn't trade that experience for the world!

I still do fanart for friends, old and new like
 :iconmirz-alt: Gift Rasterman meets team Torrent by dragondoodle
  :iconzakuro-kona: Ryuko and Rysta by dragondoodle
:iconbloodyawfulkate:Birthday pressie for Freesia by girl-n-herhorse
:iconromanjones: Leelu by dragondoodle
and I still need to do something for :iconneptunes-sparks: who has been and amazing supporter and I've completely dropped the ball on that one ^^; Let me know what you would like and I'll get it to you ASAP, kiddo!

I have so many more watchers now that I can't even mention you all but know that you are all appreciated more than you can ever know! And Thank you to dA for being a place I could find a new way to express myself! :aww: You've taught this old dog new tricks for sure :giggle:
