Quite a few years back I joined just because of all the amazing references I could find here. As the years passed I began sharing my art, and getting involved in the community. Presently, thanks to dA, I have grown as an artist but, most of all, I have found some of my best friends in this whacky place. Ash, Autumn, Serene, Rebecca, Jacob, Kat, Kiana, Marissa, Jess, and many more. People that have become a part of my daily life and I am so grateful. I chose these pieces of art not because they have shown my progress as an artist in the eyes of others, but the progress in my own eyes. It is very hard for an artist to see his or her art without flaws, but I would not change a single thing about these.
