Deviate by psivamp Deviate by psivamp
I dont think I have had this much fun making an emote in a long time.

This basically shows exactly how I felt finding deviantart... Like I was being forced to be like everyone else I knew... because honestly artists are looked down on where I live.

Then this place showed me that WHO CARES WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!? and it took a little while to sink in... but now Im to the point where I am actually fairly well known around my tiny little town as the artist... and now I have people coming to ME to do work for them thanks to deviantart having broken me from my original way of thinking.

Gosh, to think I have been around over half of the length of the time this place has been and look how much it has changed my life?

It broke me of thinking there was something wrong with me for wanting multicolored hair and piercings.

It showed me that my art isn't JUST some dumb little hobby and can actually be something other people enjoy.

I met the man I am going to marry next year on this site.

I met a ton of extremely close friends I have had the pleasure to hang out with in person.

I have spent countless hours, heartbreak and excitement on this site. I couldn't even begin to thank all of the staff who have ever made that possible. Deviantart has become my home away from home.



WOW I WROTE A NOVEL! :D :D

anyway specs:

238 frames.

took me 2 hours to do.

I did it the hard way and sort of regret that. Looking back I could have probably finished in an hour if I had taken the easy route.

Haha! This is awesome! However, I think the time when they just walk and nothing happens is too long.

You said that artists are looked down upon where you live?

:) I hope that your parents and or friends and family encouraged your art.

My mother heard the sentence, "I want to be an artist," and imediately thought 'starving'. The funny thing with that was she went to school to become an art professor at one time.

I love this emote. :) The word freedom is just written all over it.

My parents were less supportive when I was younger but now they have seen how much my work has progressed and are seemingly quite proud of me :D

My mother is one who insists I go to college.
I'm not one for that and well... she doesn't like what I would be willing to go to school for. *sighs*
I'm happy that your parents are proud of you.

Wow you amaze me with your amazing art and fast work! it took me 10 hours to go my little icon.

Awesomeness has a name, it's probably hat same as your own, I just don't know it, lol.

Deviant art is inspiring me to try harder and work with what i have instead of complaining i don't have the tools or know how to use the ones i do.

Hey a Michigander!

Anyway...

When I started I had a computer and microsoft paint. To animate I used a program i have long since forgotten the name of that I got from Tech TV. I had to create each frame in paint, then load them into the program to animate it.

Trust me, it wasnt pretty!

Then I got imageready (which is now part of photoshop) and i learned to animate through that and each time I do it... I learn more and it becomes easier.

The same goes for my photography, digital paintings and photomanipulations. The more I do it, the more I learn and somehow that makes me better.

Sometimes, I regress and do crappy pieces... but we all have to make a little manure to grow that pretty flower, you know?
