My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 10:01 AM

sugar's journal

My story with DA started before I even joined, so here it goes!

It was 2005. I was a college freshmen, just starting to get interested in art again, despite the fact I was majoring in Music Education. I was still casually RPing with friends back home online, and we came up with fun characters. I wasn't a member of the site yet, actually, didn't even know it existed. My friend showed me his RPG character, which was based off this picture:

Art by Dustmeat (tried to find it on her profile, but couldn't)

I had never seen anything like it! It was a completely new concept to me!! He told me he found it on deviantART and that I should look up artists  darknatasha and Goldenwolf's paintings. So I did. I was hooked! I had never seen art like this before, it took my breath away!!
Ailah and Mahican by Goldenwolf Scenting The Wind by Goldenwolf Heart Song by Goldenwolf The Oath by Goldenwolf
Morning Watch by darknatasha Moon Song by darknatasha Forest Retreat by darknatasha Yin Yang Sketch by darknatasha
It was these pieces specifically, were some of the first drawings I saved on my computer. <3

Sadly, it wasn't enough at the time to peak my interest in art. I was still very busy trying to become a professional musician and teacher. But, flash forward to 2007. I had just married Kelly, I was off track that semester, wasn't having any luck finding work. I was board out of my mind by myself in our tiny apartment while my husband went to school and then to work in the evenings. I decided to get back into art to save myself from the many hours on my own. Naturally, I started drawing werewolves. Up until this point, I had only casually browsed deviantART, but I finally made it official in June 2007!

These were the first few drawings I had ever done and submitted on dA.

(The time stamp on some of these is way later, but I had just waited a while before submitting it to deviantART.)

Then I wanted to experiment with digital coloring (with a mouse, which SUCKED).

I wanted to improve even more. After seeing how amazing digital art was, I wanted to give it a go. That year for my birthday I received my very first tablet. A tiny little Wacom.

My first digital drawing EVER!
This is what I am by sugarpoultry (check the date, July 30th, day after my birthday. :) )

Then these followed:
Werewolf Anya - Fighting by sugarpoultry Wolf Gazing by sugarpoultry

I felt I was improving faster with digital then I was traditional, so I kept going and going and going! I didn't submit a whole lot, but I was gaining popularity over the next few years. Finally, somebody liked my art enough to note me and ask if they could pay me to draw something for them. I hadn't thought about doing commissions at all at this point, but I went ahead and did it for her. My first ever commissioned piece:
Commission for ItachiXme by sugarpoultry

Once the dA found out I did commissions, my account exploded!! Especially since at the time, I was on a werewolf high, so all I ever got was werewolf commissions!!

It's been pretty busy ever since, and honestly doing commissions had helped me improve over these last 7 years. There are so many useful tutorials and people willing to help. Being in school and later having a baby made it even more tricky, but I never gave up on my art. I was always doodling in class (naughty haha) and practicing new techniques at home. I was determined to get as good as the artists I admired. Still feel I have a ways to go. ;)

Well, my interests have shifted over the years. Obviously my werewolf art has slowed down significantly. I see this as a good thing, despite many of my followers who wish the endless stream of werewolf art would continue. ;) Sorry guys, but I've always gone through phases. I just happened to improve my art skills right as I was going through a werewolf phase. But gotta leave it to the werewolf/anthro fans. They are pretty amazing. Imagine if it had been mermaid, or generic fantasy, or fan art at the time. The outcome of my experience could have been way different! It's no surprise to anyone that werewolf art was the key to my growth. I may have lost interest in werewolves compared to then, but I still love them! They are still my favorite fictional creature of all time, and I do enjoy painting them. ;)

Whenever people ask me about how I got so good at art, I always say its because of deviantART. It really is! The community and resources here really are the best the internet has to offer! I always recommend this site to anyone, and if they complain they just aren't getting enough x or y out of their artist experience, they can if they gave this site a chance. :) Thanks deviantART, and happy birthday!!

----

Thank you everyone who over the years has supported me and appreciated my art. I know its changed a lot, but many of you have stuck with me and I just wanna give you a huge squishy hug! I've met and become friends with some amazing people on here. <3 I really feel blessed.


Thanks for reading!

Sugar, i went to the pennsylvania renaissance faire yesterday and i wore a Doctor Who shirt that i got from you, its similar to this one fav.me/d6gnp3k but it has the quote "The man who keep running never looking back because he dair not out of shame" and a lot of people loved it, i kept getting compliments, all people keept on telling me was even though the shirt is simple it has a big impact to it and its the only Doctor Who shirt that does not have a sonic screw driver or a tardis on it.

i just thought you would like to know :D
