In my years of a deviantART member I've learned very much. Both from personal practise and the constantly changing of my life, but also from the inspiration and art from other people here on dA. From being an introverted person who didn't use much colour in my art, to a still introverted person, who dare to express herself more, not only in my art, but with my body and speech. To dare use colour in my art, and perfect my techniques at different media. Faster sketching with more accurate anatomy, traditional art with thick paint and thought put into. Digital art improved and still learning in all the different areas. That's why I choose these pictures, to show you my journey through the eight years here on dA.
The positive feedback and constructive critic have also helped a lot. Without deviantART I think I wouldn't had so much inspiring art to look at, to help me improve myself, and help others who's learning art when they wanted tips. I still stick to; Practise, practise, practise! Even if I'm not a frequent up-loader or my art, I still sketch and have to much of it to show in one picture. Maybe someday I will show deviantART my sketches. But that time hasn't come yet as I'm taking a bit step in my life right now, going to an Art school to do something I love. Express myself creatively. Take care everyone out there and do what your heart and guts tells you!
And one more thing. Happy birthday DeviantART!
Yours truly, Whatty/HMM.
