For the past few weeks i've noticed a crop of My DeviantArt Stories here. At first I didn't pay much attention to it but I found out it was to celebrate 14 years of DA. Also you get a neat little badge but I doubt I'll get one at this point. However I think doing reflections like this is good for you.

I started DA w a different account four years ago but it wasn't high quality work.  I only started drawing seriously back in July 2010. I learned about DA and thought it was a good way to keep myself accountable with my progress. Funny i say this because I haven't been doing a lot this month. After a few months my first account fell into disuse. I didn't make time for it or to improve my art. Eventually I started up my current account with my friend. Sadly she stopped drawing altogether but i continued.

I always felt insecure that my work would be overshadowed by digital art since quality and interest was better, but I stuck with traditional to improve my skills. I would practice the basics, focusing on Realism, do warm ups, draw still-lifes, animals, plants, large objects like cars and houses, but rarely draw people. However i decided to challenge this by drawing people using google image. Over four years I've made a lot of progress, met different people, made some friends and changed a lot of my thinking and way of doing things. I've started to appreciate the work I put into, take the time to reach out to people here. Now drawing is something I really enjoy doing and its become a hobby I take pride in.
