So how can I start this off?
I've been here for about 4 years now, with 1 name change (it was an inside joke that I grew tired of) and loads of inspiration from many talented individuals I've descovered through this site.
When I first joined the community, I was adding sketches and ink work that I had done just to show what I did to pass the time. But as the years passed and I got older, I decided to change mediums and put my main focus into photography. Here are a few images to showcase what I've put myself into, what I'm proud of and how I've grown as an artist.
I won't go into detail about every image added, because they all have very long stories that accompany them.
What I will say is throughout the last few years of taking photographs, I've been critiqued, torn down, inspired, and shown that no matter what skill level you are, there's always a mutual respect for each other as artists.
With that said, I'll leave you with this:
We grow as individuals, but as an art community we grow as a whole.
Happy 14th Birthday deviantART, may there be many more!
