First of all Happy Birthday Deviantart!!!! Best wishes to the site and hope that it continues to flourish with the imagination and creativity of the people who work behind the scene and the members of the site.
I wasn't going to this but due to the fact I want to avoid my homework at the moment. I'll will tell you a tale of my adventure of Deviantart as the artist, Destiny-FaithAngel.In a time of myth and legend before Deviantart:
Before deviantart ... the very start I was a shy, timid girl who kept her nose in her books taking adventures to far of lands while keeping perfect A grade in her Visual Art classes. Other then reading I would draw all sorts of things from How to Draw manga/anime books to improve my skills. It wasn't until my best friend drag me out of the library after 2 years in Highschool and introduce to new people in my life which became my friends. From them I became more aware of the fandoms on the web and that was eventually introduce to Deviantart for the search of fanart.Beginning of the legend:
Starting out here I had a different account, I think it was HikariAngel or something but I don't know what reason it been too long (Maybe i forgot the password or something) I started a new account. I was 13 at the time and I started out to make my username I never noticed the mistype between Fate and Faith so instead of Destiny-FateAngel I became Destiny-FaithAngel but I didn't mind.
Anyway I started been a member here from October in 2008 but at that time I was only just a browser to the site without adding interesting to my profile. Just continue adding more art to the favourite collection. I was still a young teenager so been introduced to a place like this was super exciting and the first few deviantwatchers were my friends and at the beginning use this place to talk with each other. Choosing the heroic path:
Sooner then later I wanted to stop being a watcher from the sideline and start contributing to this amazing sociality. So this where the fun experimentation started and it range from anything drawn within my sketchbook to photographs of nature and anything that capture my attention when going on the family roadtrips and items that I had around the house.
This experimentation continue with a bit a fanfiction writing here and on the site Fanfiction.net under the same username but things started to change more once graduated highschool.
-Starting university meant that I got my hands on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Aftereffects, Bridge and other programs
-got my own laptop to use instead of the family main desktop pc
-Had enough cash to get a graphic tablet (And its still working to this day)
-My degree meant that I was drawing all the time for projects meaning that I would drawn eventually my own art and fanart.
Since university life happen I use this place to post what I've done and join many groups but still the main thing that I still do is favourite and my collections is expanding further then i can imagine and just wishes for subfolders in the favourite gallery. This place allows me to post all that I've done from uni and allows me to see how much I've change through the style of art that I've been expose at uni and here on deviantart. University projects: My own art:
Through out using deviantart I became a premium member which is great in some aspect though still wishing for subfolders in the fave gallery. I was presented with a choice of changing my username. I grew attach to my first username and I don't know whether to make the leap from Destiny-FaithAngel to MishaRose. The reason that I refer to myself more as Misha Rose as it more of nickname form of my first and middle name; is that somehow during the past years in highschool and uni I somehow ended up stuck in classes where there is another Michelle with me. Maybe someday I could use it as a way to label myself as a designer but I use it here on deviantart to avoid writing my name and also that most other social network I'm known as Misha Rose. My deviantart IDs:
Through this site I've seen many different artist grow and develop their skills and had become fans of their work. Such as KicsterAsh, Mikeinel, nicolaskole, bleedman, kiki-kit, LiyuConberma, mauroz, Avannak, Bonka-chan, rufftoon and Quinni. They are all an inspiration to me.
Other the using this place for inspiration I also use it for the fanart. There are heaps of amazing work here on everything and also stock images for referencing poses.Now to the Present:
University life, finish my degree and decide whether to do Honours or Professional for my final year of uni is the main thing on my mind. Even if it means dropping my side projects for now and be less active on deviantart for my gallery then the favorites gallery. This is due to trying to find an internship and at the same time start reworking my design portfolio.
I'm glad for deviantart to been apart of my life and help me develop as a graphic designer. I wouldn't know what to do without this place being here.
I would also like to thank all my watchers out there that are still watching me and I'm thankful that you enjoy my work.
This is Misha Rose
