So, here is my "deviantART Story" journal...*hopes that I can still get the badge* :crossfingers: :luck:Picture # 1 (top left):
Shivadust. This is a character that I adopted from
back in the fall of 2013. I am still going through a pony art phase, and this was the most recent picture I had drawn in my gallery. Looking at all of these deviations I'm posting, I'm actually starting to sketch again. Maybe I'll post them in the future soon. Anyway, I wanted to start drawing adopted characters I had started to frequently buy on deviantart, so I figured I could draw them to show that I'm still thinking about my characters. I chose this one because, well, it is the most recent submission in my gallery, and I want to show off ponies.Picture # 2:
Savannah and Bengal. I often fantasize about what pets I would like to have when I own my own home. Some of the pets I dreamed of having were two beautiful cats, the savannah and the Bengal cat. After looking at some images of real images of the cats, I wanted to try to digitally paint them because I loved the way these beauties looked. I spent A LOT of time working on this one. I was also practicing some "realistic" effects as well. I chose this picture because I want to remind myself that I still want these cats as pets today.Picture # 3
: Old "Ponysona". After deviantart was filling endless submissions of what they would look like if they were ponies, I decided to join the bandwagon. I came up with this picture at first when I imagined what type of pony I would be. I chose a Pegasus because I often dream of having wings and flying. And, not to brag, but I can run really fast, almost like I'm not even touching the ground. (For other MLP:FIM fans out there, there is a particular athletic pony which you all know when I was thinking about why I wanted to be a Pegasus
). My "ponysona" has had alterations after this first submission, but I decided to chose this one for my journal for nostalgic purposes...and to show ponies again. Picture # 4
: Oriental Dragon. I'm having trouble finding art I really like after these last few submissions, and even though I don't think it's my best picture and probably an acquired taste for me, I still think it was good practice drawing a famous mythological creature. As you might tell, I drew this with colored pencils. Everyone has the issue of the dA submitted version not looking as good as the original, and I feel that same way about this picture. It was still, like I said, a good experience to draw something in a very specific, traditional style. I chose this picture because again, it is different from my usual digital submissions, and even if it's not my best, I still would like to recognize this picture as my own and that I can remind myself of improvement that I can make if I decide to draw a Chines dragon again.Picture # 5
: These are two original cat characters. The gray one my character; he is an alien cat named Ferkle who can travel through space to travel to unknown planets. I came up with his name while I was saying gibberish words
. The cat on the bottom belongs to
, who I believe is simply known as "Smelly Cat". (I couldn't find her reference for her character, sorry). I wanted to draw a good picture of my character besides just a reference, and I thought that I could have him interacting with a cat from another artist I know. It was fun drawing her character too. I chose this picture because I wanted to show one of my non-pony characters, and that I'm honoring another artists character as well.
Well, I hope that does it. Happy (belated) birthday, deviantART!
