I reached 10000 watchers. Wow that's a lot.
Yeah a lot happened within the first few years I was drawing ponies. Lots of leaps with style change and that sort.
I think I've been drawing long enough to actually make one of these things. Unfortunately I'm pretty disappointing because if feels like my drawing skills have just
stagnated and even dropped after 2015. To top it off I really haven't drawn much in the past 2 years at all. The amount of art I drew in 2014 alone is almost 5 times of 2016+2017 (so far) altogether.
School hit me hard, but It wasn't the workload itself. (which should've been manageable if i didn't procrastinate) it was me being a dumb dumb stressed out idiot who thought procrastination was a good idea. yeah it really wasn't. I got around 5-6 hours of sleep on most days. Sometimes 2-4 if I was studying for a test. Bad decisions I make in my life
But at least I haven't pulled an all nighter yet!
Deviantart has been one hell of a ride. I think really the best part is how much the people I've met inspired me to draw more. Try new things, an in overall help me develop my style.
So I think its also due time for me to list some of my style inspirations.
When I started off, and was still mostly in the anime drawing community Yamio
was one of my greatest inspirations, and that also affected my early on pony lineart style (ultra shiny haha)
Later on I discovered Tsitra360
which was what made me try out doing some black and white art with the realistic hair and shading. and then, probably one of my favorite artists, Huussii
made me want to try out more backgrounds. Really amazing composition, colours, and scenery. If you haven't watched huussi, man are you missing out. `u` Speaking of backgrounds, I also was really inspired by Rain-Gear
amazing bg art. I loved the smooth glow his drawings always had. He unfortunately doesn't go on DA anymore, but his gallery is still there and beautiful
Also it was always fun going to the guy's streams. I'll miss em.
Someone I found a bit later on, but also someone who really inspired me with their anatomy. I loved her art the moment I saw it QVQ. Earthsong9405
. Like man, the way she draws ponies is so beautiful and creative. ( they all go so well with the character traits too!) Also the headcannons she writes are
. I actually did a few collabs with her and that always got me squealing haha. I was super excited when she asked haha.
Truth be told there are a lot more inspirations, but if I listed them all, I'd be sitting here for hours. `y`
If you have any questions feel free to ask! :3 I'll reply.
