Rewind about 6 years and you'll see me as a 14 year old making an account here and leaving GaiaOnline for about two years, I did go back after awhile but I no longer use Gaia. Anyway I just came here because I was tired of using Gaia. I had used it for two years because I was into anime but I got bored of it eventually and wanted to try something different. Photobucket was one of the main art websites to go to at the time when you had a Gaia account, but I eventually discovered Deviantart and opted to try it out.
At first I tried it to look up some art and fave it, because there was so many good and funny stuff to find here that Photobucket did not have. I was more into anime back then than I am now, and if you'll look through my favorites you'll see that. I eventually decided to give to the community and post some drawings and comics, which I felt a bit more motivated by having some artistic friends as well. Though back then I didn't have a wacom, a tablet, or a photoshop. I just had a mouse and a computer so I drew on MS paint which of course didn't work out to well, but I did get better at using it and I got a decent following going. I then took my aim at writing fanfiction and that helped me get more people to check it out, and it helped with my confidence. I however back then encountered some problems a year later.
I had the wrong kind of people to be my friends and they would often insult me on my work, and it made me lose motivation, and I had this one "uber fan" that would nag me into making longer fanfics updated the next day. Before I would have no problem with that and I loved the positive feedback I got from people when they read my work and saw my drawings but at the time I just wasn't into it like I used to. I stopped talking to those people again, and after that I took a break from updates for a few years, so I could recover. But that didn't mean I stopped using my account. I still came here to look up art, and even give witty and kind compliments to other artists and writers that deserve. In my opinion "Keep it up" is a nice compliment but to me it sounds a bit too naggy to me so I always say things along the lines of me making a funny joke to make the artist laugh or "This is great, you got some real talent." So, it's like I'm saying "Good job" without making them feel pressured.
Nowadays I have recently gotten back into the swing of things. I uploaded some pictures, and I go a lot more on my computer that I'll upload in time. I also got some writing too work on as well. Lately, I was thinking of getting a reddit account for the sake of writing on it's NoSleep thing. Maybe.
