I've kind of gone over this already in another journal but this time I'm going in more detail and adding pictures. I'm only doing this for the badge -3-
As I said, Professor Layton was my life
when I was 11, and I spent all my time researching it and watching videos on YouTube. One video was the speedpaint of the picture above~ It didn't take me long to track it down, but it's still a miracle.
Anyway, it lead me to dA and I made an account. Nothing was ever posted but it would have just been ponies and Professor Layton (primary school was a horrific experience, so my special interests kept me entertained inbetween best friends.) I deactivated the account when I started again, because it had my first and middle name in it and was basically the most narcissistic username conceivable, but I was
I got into photomanipulation through Howrse and made a second account in order to join someone's club. The picture above is probably the least eye-burning thing I produced, but of course it's still bad. As you can guess from the picture, I had started my weeaboo phase by this point.

This one isn't so bad in my opinion. And I still like Black Bird!
In October, I found anthro and disliked it at first but I thought the drawing was so good, it grew on me. But that picture's been deleted now, it seems :c
My first drawing of Ivory! Not my first anthro drawing, but I don't have the energy to upload that. The outfit is from "Allegra" by Kagamine Rin (right; I also drew this), which is and was my favourite song--I relate to it so much.
After starting anthro in February 2012 on this account (my third!) I made some new friends which was nice because I was very unhappy in late 2011 and early 2012. Neither my self-esteem nor scars have fully healed from this period, but I'm more social now than I ever was~! Hopefully I'll get out of my current artblock, which has been going on since last year, but I have been focusing on my religion more in the last few weeks, which is sad because I do like to draw my OCs D:
