bat vs bird by Authenti
bat vs bird
This is actually my favourite version of Penguin, and also my favourite Bat-cape. That is one heck of a cape I tell you what. Anyway I'm done with a finished piece for once so here I am throwing it on deviantART to prove I still plan on posting things here sometimes.

They're quieter than birds, at least. (Doodle of Jonathan Crane.)
I don't know how this got started, but I'm on board!

Back in December 2006 at the age of 13, I found deviantART through (I think) playing the ancient furry MMO called Furcadia and following a link in someone's character description. Ever the shameless furry, I decided enough was enough, made an OC and settled down on dA with my character with the goal of showing off my tremendous art skills to the world.

It was later, sometime in 2008, that I found BlackScythePack (hi, guys! good to know you're still around!) and dabbled in making some friends there. I met a lot of great people, most of whom have long moved on from deviantART, and most of my time was spent working too hard on technique and not enough on basic groundwork as far as my art was concerned. The next year I also met DeathToSquishies, who is still around and still kickin' rad in my humble opinion. Along with the dA crowd were SkyJukebox and Socks-and-Notebooks who, although we haven't talked in a long time, I couldn't be more proud of. Everyone's mostly on Tumblr these days (same tho) and their art has come along in leaps and bounds and just, wow, man. I didn't improve half that much in the amount of time we've been apart - and honestly, considering they were the artists on deviantART that influenced me to stop shoehorning myself into manga and start going with my own thing like they were, seeing them improve so much over time is a dang great inspiration. I dunno, man. I wouldn't be where I am today if not for the people I met that convinced me to keep drawing, to change up my style, to try my hand at the stuff I was bad at... I owe a lot to the people I met through deviantART.

Anyway, at some point in 2010 or 2011 (not sure which, actually!) I picked up and moved over to Tumblr. I slowly stopped being active here on dA, and it's only within the past few weeks that I started getting active on here again. So if you're reading this, now is probably a good time to come talk to me if you want to make friends! DeviantART seems very quiet lately, but I'm totally willing to make some new friends here and I hope no one feels too shy in coming to talk to me. It's a little lonely here what with most of the people I know gone off to their own corner of the internet! Also, feel free to recommend me to active dA chats or what have you. I'm very open to socialising right now.

Hit me up!
