Well since a lot of people I watch or follow on DA has been doing this, this inspired me to do my own c:
Well to start this story I discovered deviantart by the time I was in 6th grade in middle school [when 6th grade was still considered part of middle school]. It was there that I ended up saving some Fullmetal Alchemist pictures, primarily Pride Ed from the fanmade game Blue Bird Illusion. At that time I was finally choosing my career path as an artist or story writer at that time. Despite myself being on deviantart almost 24/7 to look at artworks aside from watching youtube videos and reading fanfiction, I wasn't able to have my own due to parental issues [I couldn't even get a Gaia or a Facebook go figure :/]. It was also during middle school I first developed my first original character Phoniex [who at that time was a bit different from what you see today
Here's one piece that I drew in middle school that was one of the first drawings of Phoniex:
It was only in highschool that my inspiration to story write and draw increased when I managed to meet with
, a director and cartoonist for Warner Bros. Studios. It was him that pushed me to continue writing and telling stories of my characters and continue drawing to what I aspired to be. It was also during my sophomore year in highschool that I met
first during the summer in tennis practice. We soon became very very close friends and ended up roleplaying together which in turned caused the birth of many other characters aside from Chaos, Bain, Phoniex, Inferno, Slash, Dagger, Lynda, Laura, and Demon, all of whom I already had just never drawn so much back then. It was later also that I also met
, who at the time was only drawing Sonic characters. It was around that time I finally managed to get my deviantart account and finally started uploading pictures of my sophomore year.
Here are some pictures of what I posted up once I got in:
But also during that time I was having some drama with both
, in which I either end up spending more time with the other or I end up ignoring some of them or just end up completely disregarding what they were feeling cause at the time they were the very first friends I honestly had in a very long time and since I didn't know how to handle being friends, I ended up messing up a lot of things. It somewhat dimmed in the end of my sophomore year and early junior year. Aside from that I also finally managed to grab my hands on a tablet during the early times of my junior year.
Here are some pics I posted during that point in time:
Now with junior year all the way up to my senior year was a rollercoaster of emotions. It was during a time I was having a lot more issues than I imagined. It starts right after I official met
had become acquainted/friends with her. It was also the time where I felt like I was being pushed away and also honestly felt like I was being replaced when
were hanging out more often than both
and I. It was also when I found out that was when she actually hated me for what I had done to both
and was lashing out at me because of it. At the time I already knew and felt the intense guilt from it, but that didn't really stop since it kind of escalated to my senior year in high school. Still I persisted and continued to post what I could. But good things came still cause that was when I met
and ColonelZuka and became friends with them.
Here are some pictures:
Then the rest is history. things got better, things got worse, so on and so forth in college but still I ended up continuing to draw through the years and have been improving since then. I'm on better terms with
, I still manage to be close friends to
. Got hooked onto playing Aion etc, though I honestly need to stop playing so much, I can't keep constantly playing anymore.
Some pics from then to now:
Well that's it, that's my DA story.
