Alright, kiddos, buckle up and join me on this ride. My deviantART story goes back about six years.
I found this website because I was a Narutard when I was 12. My dad had just gotten us internet, and naturally the first thing I did was look up Naruto shit. In fact, my first account here was
, which was banned several months after I made it because they enforced the rule of no 12 year olds on this site.
So, naturally what I did was creep around until I was old enough to make an account. Around when I turned 13, which was in early 2009, I made some random account that I don't even remember the name of. Months later in 2010, I made
, which is where many of my friends met me.
Let me just sum up 2010 in one picture.
SHITTY HETALIA FAN ART! Because summer of 2010 is when I got into Hetalia, and that anime consumed my life. I made an RP group called Hetalia High School, eventually renamed World Summit Academy, and let's just say that group is 100% why I quit group RP for a while. I fucked everything up as manager, almost every ex-member still hates me, and I learned that not all internet friends are genuine.
But there was one person I met that rocked.
Ilu Lovi <3
Anywho, I abandoned sasoritol for a while after WSA ended to get away from the drama, and thus I made
. This shortlived time is best summarized in more crappy Hetalia art:
The most notable thing that happened to me on this account was my best IRL friends Coffee-n-Ramen backstabbing me over god damn creative differences. There was one friend who I'll just call J that sort of stuck around, and she followed me when I went back to
, but I'll get into that later.
Upon going back to that old account, I improved somewhat. Got a tablet. Tablets are great. Had a friend named Russia-muffins. We talked every day on Skype call. But I hated the username sasoritol, and people started calling me Finny, so I made a new account.
The most notable thing here is my shift from Hetalia to drawing whatever the fuck I feel like at the moment. I tried a new style, too, and it worked for a while.
While on this account, I created my Ouran OC Piper Song, who turned out to be one of my most notable OCs to date. I never imagined so much thought would go into her. I made a couple more friends, but unfortunately in July, my father's health declined, adult protection got involved, and my sister and I were left to live alone.
This is where J comes in again, btw. I had some friendships that were taking a lot out of me to maintain, and rather than drift apart without any closure (and just in case Child Protection took me away since 16 year olds living with their older sisters weren't a good thing), I cut ties with them. J took it the hardest, and it was the hardest note for me to send. She resents me for it, and we've only talked a little bit since then, usually trying to work things out and restart our friendship, but I feel like she's fucked me over enough (bitch got me banned from our local writing group), so I'm not too keen on her anyway.
So, moving on, I needed an account to get away from all the shit. Somewhere to post art in private without worrying over whether or not my watchers will like it. That's when I created this account. It was originally named Tear-of-Violet, as I was going to go by Tear and purple is my favorite color.
I established myself here and eventually turned this into my main account. A lot of my watchers came from my doujin gone wrong Twist of Fate. All I can say about friends here is that I met Adri, love that girl, and fuck Cassy.
So, since you've all been watching me on this account, you know what's happened here. I jumped from fandom to fandom, mainly drew OCs, and only recently got back into doing fanart. My greatest amount of artistic progress has happened on this account, as I've gone from drawing potatoes such as
to semi-good compositions like
Also, I have some very notable OCs here now, including Piper, Taiyuki, and Antonio.
They're at least three of my favorites.
And that concludes this journey. I know this may seem to be a bit much in comparison to other stories, but I like to embrace my pass. Remembering the mistakes I made helps me improve as a person and an artist, and the good times that happened encourage me to strive for more. I don't have the same friends that I did years ago, and that's not a bad thing. People come and go, and even those that hate me and I dislike, I still hope they're doing well and wish them the best.
Except for J and Cassy. I don't wish death on them, but I do think they need to get their heads out of their assholes and look at the world without the precious rose colored classes they've built for themselves. If you two are somehow reading this, remember that I may have flaws, but you're no saints either <3
Anywho, thanks for reading! <3 Have a good day everyone!
