Since everybody seems to be doing this, I was like why not. By the way, it's the perfect moment to tell you all that I'm not dead! I'm still here, but I'm encountering a huge art block since May (feeling kind of depressed xD)
So here is the story of some random girl, who draws while every kind of lessons ...
Why is she on deviantArt? How come?
Browsing the internet and see all these beautiful artworks. She saw few artists improving while sharing their art on the internet. She had known deviantArt for few months, but she never had the courage to sign in.
One day, between two revisions for the first part of the French A Levels, she got fed up with biology and French literature. Starting her computer with a guilty conscious, she just began to browse through fanarts of her favourite anime. Then she came across yuumei's account. Totally amazed, she looked through the whole gallery and was like "I want to improve!"
This is why she signed in with the name of CakeCaptorLily.
Were there people helping her going forward?
Her first watcher is an ancient classmate from high school Csylia : she was the first one to show her groups to join (Generation-manfra). Joining this group was a great discover. The random girl, known as CakeCaptorLily, found out amazing artist from this huge site. These artists inspired her and gave her indirectly the wish to go further. Some of these artists are known under the names of Doria-Plume, naochiko, Hellobaby, Ry-Spirit, whispwill or melloskitten
Csylia wasn't the only one, who made her discover deviantArt's diversity. Tsukiiyo made this random girl co-founder of the group 21st-Century-Artist. This was a new experience for her.
Besides of these great artists, she made some friends, who encouraged her a lot. Her first dA friend is Arehandoro1986
Then she asked her friend NeroKuro and her sister baka-chan-chan to join.
After high school, she and her friend NeroKuro took different paths. Her friend once asked her if she wanted to join an RP-group. She didn't know what it was and didn't have the time to role play. Rena-Circa convinced her to start in this RP-group. She finally accepted and she met wonderful people like cyci15 and many other! Unfortunately the group closed, but it's still a good experience.
What she becomes today ...
Today, she's still online but not very active. Art blocks are just horrible things: no inspiration and no motivation.
Although, she improved a lot while the 3 years of membership.
