  • Mood: Artistic
Coalfoot 2 by cantbreath45  For a very long time, almost all of my art was lineart, I had a mouse and GIMP at my side, wielding them to never make anything more than something related to a roleplay, like character images or some scene of a sort. That was my dA life, perusing for stuff I liked, and filling in lineart. I was however, never content. I wanted to make more, I didn't want to rely on someone else to create art, but I didn't know what to do. As a traditional artist, I've been drawing for years and while I've gotten pretty good, I didn't have an exact means to transfer that artistry onto the computer, leaving me stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I was also, very lonely on dA, despite talking to other people rather often like those I roleplayed with, but never anyone to create art with.

That was however, until May 6th, 2013, when :iconconva: commented on the piece above, 'Coalfoot 2'. We talked, we talked a lot, next thing I knew we were talking constantly, supporting the other's art, supporting each other. I didn't realize just how much I was needing a real person to talk with on this site to keep me coming, to inspire me, but I had. Conva introduced me to others, :iconair-204: and :iconfoolscourage: being among them, I built up friends that were fellow artists. I became really happy with dA and art, and I finally had that push to move myself further and improve. 

Faith Refrence by cantbreath45 So the first version of Faith was born, back on July 19, 2013. It was the first thing I'd drawn on a tablet, the one I still currently use, a Wacom Bamboo Create using Sketchbook Express. It certainly was rough, but it was a start. Eventually she was turned into an anthropomorphic though she is drawn feral all the time just as well. I also started using GIMP more again for artistry, and color lining, something I very much so use now in anything I draw. The Freedom of No Pants by cantbreath45 Faith also, though being a fursona, started to get a story of her own. I had come up with a pair of cats that would also be fursonas,Darin Mewlith Reff (OLD) by cantbreath45 Karin Mewlith by cantbreath45 Darin (left) and Karin (right) Mewlith. At first they had spots but I later got rid of them. They also later became Faith's adopted kids, and I started using Sai Paint Tool until the trial ran out. Drawing them makes me extremely happy, as I use them to relate what is actually happening to me myself, or how I'm feeling. Walking Lessons by cantbreath45

I'd also joined a Warrior Cats Roleplay site called Warrior Cats Online (WCO) and to get practice in, and do something I love, I would open requests for whoever wanted me to draw their character. This practice quickly came in handy, as everything I was doing improved.I Found Warmth In The Paws of Enemies by cantbreath45 Smokewhite by cantbreath45 Deceptionstar by cantbreath45 Swallowsong and Twilightsky by cantbreath45
I started getting better with anatomy, backgrounds, colors, I started to shade, I found out I was rather good with drawing blood too. But in part, what was most important was how I made those people happy, as lots of people enjoy seeing their characters come to life beyond words of text. I started to use a program after Sai called MyPaint, a really nice one too that I rather enjoyed. Really great for sketching and had plenty of brushes. I only ever had minimal trouble with it. I started to get inspired with creating more and more.Together At Last by cantbreath45 Lovely Weather We're Having by cantbreath45 Leave Spirit by cantbreath45 I really liked the brushes actually.

Most recently, I stared doing requests again, and use a program called FireAlpaca, which is rather similar to Sai but entirely free and it really nice in its own right.Cody by cantbreath45 My backgrounds have improved.

Heatherflame by cantbreath45 My anatomy too.

Cloudflower by cantbreath45 My drive and creativity.

Amber by cantbreath45 My vision.

FlickerSplash Kicks Butt by cantbreath45 And my love for it.

So while I am far from the best, I am content with where I am now, but I plan on continuing to improve. Because I've finally found the people I needed to find, because I finally found the reason I draw. I have no want to be a professional artist, rather an author. But artistry, is something I love, because of the way I see it make other people happy. Which too me, is probably what is most important in the end. And it's what deviantART has taught me over five years. So happy birthday dA, let's keep up the great work.
