3 years have passed since the day I joined deviantArt, which is around the time I started taking drawing seriously(-ish).
Though I RARELY visit this account, I have never stopped drawing and finding different ways to "express" myself.
SO!!! How did I get into drawing? Well, below is one of the first few (dozen) drawings I made around 2009-2010.
My history with drawing is pretty short as I started kind of late drawing at around the age of 15-16; influenced solely by my dear friend AlRoss who I saw drawing some anime eyes in a (English?) class. I practically begged him to teach me to draw (I was a pretty annoying lad, still am I think xD), after which I started looking through online tutorials and step-by-step "How to draw Anime" sites. I remember when I would COMPLETELY block out the lectures of the teachers and just doodle/draw on my notes (don't have that luxury anymore...UNI!!!!).
Then Al started to introduce anime to me, and while Death Note was the first anime I ever watched, the one anime that made me fall head over heels is Full Metal Alchemist as evidence by my FMA fanarts.
Just look at them, WHAT IS WITH THAT FONT!?!?!?
*ahem* Anyway, anime pretty much sparked my addiction to drawing and have been told that I've been improving in a short amount of time.
But that's mainly because I have a lot of supporting teachers, friends, and family, each critiquing my work so I could improve upon it and draw a better piece. Then I started to dab in Photoshop, scanning my work and coloring it in.

Anywho, when I started to use Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop, I was going to graduate from High School and move on to Uni and ultimately not have enough time (and mostly because I'm a lazy SOB) as I started to use different artistic mediums like Photography and Filming. While I may not be here that often, I still draw and try my best to improve; in the meantime, enjoy these two pieces of which I am proud of
