I am GirlKirby and I have been a deviant since August 8, 2007. Even though 7 years have passed, I remember having my hands on a dA account like it was yesterday.What's your art history?
I began to draw when I could pick up crayons, pencils, pens, ect. as a toddler. I began to pursue drawing at 11 when I developed a secret crush on Link from the Zelda series. My siblings thought my work was a joke, making me the butt of them, but it made my first real friends at school happy.
One day, I had to move away to a new place because my house was rotting from the top 3 most poisonous molds in the world. I had no friends to appeal to for a while and I began to feel suicidal from the loneliness.How did you find out and join dA?
I remember my older sister, Rebeccannoying
, getting an account and I browsed the website almost everyday after the effect. The thought about having people all over the world seeing my work gave me a bit of hope through the tough 7th grade year. I asked my mom for an account and she wouldn't let me until I signed some dumb-ass contract. I greeted dA with this submission: Dialga Meets Mew.
I was a bit sad that this wasn't getting any attention, so I submitted a few more pieces. Eventually, I decided to talk to Razzl3erry
(she was known as DarkEmbrace217 back then) because I stalked her gallery prior to account creation. We became buds and had a ball with one another. Her and a few others were my motivation to keep going and not give up on life. These are my older submissions after Dialga Meets Mew.
I grew in many ways and developed new skills on my journey through the years. Below is my more recent work.
I want to say thank you to those who made my experience fantastic. I couldn't make it this far without you guys.
