When I was still in middle school, I drew a little dragon (thumb on the far left) and at the time there was nothing specifically special about him he was just a cute little dragon. Time went on and I drew him a couple more times and decided to name him Draco. He gradually became my unofficial to official mascot for my Kirkia persona. DeviantART has helped me develop as an artist and inspire to try new techniques and mediums to find my own style. Draco has been recreated in Prismacolor pencil crayon, pen and ink, Prismacolor markers, and finally in digital form.
The tutorials and helpful tips that the artists on this site share with each other have helped me develop my skills and own style that I can feel proud of today. The community spirit of deviantART is amazing and feels like a family. The contests, giveaways, events, tutorials, forums and other aspects too numerous to count have made this place so much fun to be a part of! To be side by side with world famous artists is like a dream come true! I can honestly say that without deviantART i would not be where I am today.
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR BEING A PART OF THIS FAMILY!!! <3
