Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
I'm a 18-year-old fan artist. I'm a huge fan of non-human cartoony things and an absolute sucker for cute stuff (99% of which is Japanese). I reside in a humble college dorm as of September 2016
One Piece, Kirby, Sonic
Been drawing for about 5 years now. Started in middle school with a sudden urge to draw Sonic characters in my composition book with a mechanical pencil and Crayola colored pencils. And thank God for that spark because if I hadn't demonstrated potential in something during those 2 years I would have been fodder for the 8th graders.
I don't use art to escape anything, I just do it for fun. It's one of those things that you're proud to get better at because the results define your improvement so clearly. I don't try to pour my heart and soul into each stroke, it's more of an "I'll just draw this character again but a little more realistically than last time" kind of deal.
I'm OCD when it comes to making characters look like their official renders. Stylizing characters has always been something I've shied away from. I like the designs of the characters I see on the official merchandise. I don't need to give them giant noses or something so you know it's made by me just by looking at it.
I judge my art by 2 criteria: Shading and Pain wrought by the sight of it. Not really into symbolism and all that "open-to-interpretation" nonsense. I'm not going to draw a cucumber in the middle of the Sahara Desert to tell the world I'm lonely. I want people to enjoy the sight of characters they know and love, falling under the impression they'll never be lost to time.
All of my current work is done with a Wacom Bamboo Splash tablet and Photoshop CS6. Anything before April 2015 is Paint Tool Sai or mechanical/colored pencil.
