Personal Quote: "There are such things as 'cute demons & zombies'! You're talking to one right now!"
Over the years I have posted many pieces of art on DA. I started while in high school, took a small break, then once adjusted to college I continued. When my dad was diagnosed with head and neck cancer all art came to a screeching halt. I no longer saw beauty in the world, no inspiration. My time was fully devoted to my family. Luckily I had amazing friends both in real life and online that cared for me. They told me not to give up my passion for life. Their persistence got me into the spirit once more. Before I knew it, my dad had kicked cancer's ass and is now on the road to recovery.

With my dad going through recovery, and my family moving into a wonderful new home, I too have healed. I managed to come back to the wonderful world of art in full-swing, making  an art shoppe on GaiaOnline, and doing commissions like a Boss! I've just posted several of these commissions. Out of curiosity I clicked on my gallery to see everything I have displayed. my computer crashed twice and I lost a lot of my artwork. Luckily I had saved several of my older pieces on DA. As I looked at these older submissions, I started to realize how much I have grown as an artist. It also made me realize how much I have grown as a person in general. As the lines in my artwork became thinner, my skin grew thicker. The better the detail in clothing, the more I began to care about my self presentation. As my characters posing became more diverse, the more I started take chances. My art might not be the greatest, nor the most creative and original. none of that matters to me now. I see progression. In both my art and myself. It makes me proud to see where I've come from and how far I've traveled to get to where I am today. Now I'm left in wonder at where I'll go from here.

I've never actually been asked on DA before. n-n;

Uhm,I suppose I do sometimes. But I haven't been inspired lately to draw anything. I haven't been in a good mood the past few days and my attempts at draw have been terrible T^T
