My favorites are my favorites :P
It's a niftey lil thing everyone's doin sooo... *aggressively jumps into bandwagon* LET'S DO THIS!!


     Uhhhh not too sure where to start ^^; lol I guess a good place to start will be when I first found out about Deviantart. I was in 5th or 6th grade and dA was still young site [only about uhh 5 years old more or less]. I've been drawing since I was 3 years old, but never thought about posting them online [back then I mainly used the internet for playing games on like AddictingGames and such]. I discovered dA via google but never joined until late my 8th grade year when I found out through my then-newfound friend Kiirosan96:iconkiirosan96: that it was actually free to make a Dev profile. So I joined and posted some of my art, which was mostly just fanart and bad fan characters :icontongueblush:. *goes to look for an example to show you* Oh yeah, I forgot I deleted them.... oh well I'm preeeeeeeeetty sure you wouldn't wanna see it anyway. :XD: *shudders* I drew a lot of Maplestory-related stuff. In fact, my very first submission was Maple related:Shout by ToxicThunderRECOVER 500000 HP AND MP by ToxicThunder

It was a parody of a game skill named "Shout!"... I guess you gotta play to understand lol. As you can see my first few submissions were all made in MS Paint, before I discovered the beauty of GIMP! [I know a lot of artists don't like it but I manage to make it work :XD:] I hung out with Kiiro a lot in chatrooms and did a few collabs with her and she was really my first true best friend here on Dev. Sadly though, she's not active anymore...

After she left, my profile got pretty slow and I didn't upload much. It wasn't until my Junior year of highschool that I really decided to pick up the pace with my uploads. I uploaded mostly traditional stuff, digital pieces being a rarity mostly because I felt I sucked at it compared to my traditional stuff. 

Then came the greatest thing to ever have happened to me here on Dev and the greatest thing to happen to me so far as an artist... the Tournament of Rings!! :iconoctournamentofrings: I remember every detail of that time. You see, I've been a big fan of Zeurel's:iconzeurel: animated "Escape from Niervera" entries and Unknown-person's :iconunknown-person: animated "Law of Talos" [possibly now the most famous oct] entries and I had been DYING to join one of these octs myself. So I made a journal asking my friends/watchers if they know of any accepting auditions right now. Then out of nowhere SeseMiroh:iconsesemiroh: comments on the journal and links me to ToR. She was a new user at the time [only about a week old] and had just 3 deviations up, but just by those 3 I could tell she was an ultra-talented artist! I had NO IDEA who she was at the time. She was just a stranger who suddenly popped up and commented on my journal. Let me tell you though, I'm really glad she did! :D She and I auditioned together and was the first friend I made not only in the tourny, but the first I've made on Dev in a while. Then I met Huntertallonian:iconhuntertallonian:,Shainbow:iconshainbow:,TheFaceInTheTree:iconthefaceinthetree:TheInfamousJoeLinder:icontheinfamousjoelinder:ScytheVale:iconscythevale:SpiderInks:iconspiderinks:darklightartist:icondarklightartist:trifle-confusion:icontrifle-confusion: [EDIT: and how could I ever forget Chezburg:iconchezburg:] and a bunch of other awesome talented artists [*cough* whom-you-should-all-watch-btw *cough*]! Everyone was nice, supportive and encouraging and gave great feedback! I love em all so much! ;U; ToR was the catalyst for me to push my art to its limits and truly helped my art improve TREMENDOUSLY. I mean look at this! I went from this: Flame the DK by ToxicThunder

To this:ToR Round 4 pg 2 by ToxicThunder

It's an awesome feeling to know just how much of a long way I've come since my early days here on Dev. Hating on our old art is something we're all guilty of, but you know what? It's best to look on it fondly, no matter how much it makes you cringe because that's where you came from. It shows how your art has so greatly developed since then. It's your history and should be something to be proud of! :D 

     Things have really picked up for me since then: I've been drawing and animating more and I even got recruited by Frederator Studios into the Channel Frederator Network! I have a couple projects in the works. I'm working on the first 5 pages of an online webcomic I'll have up before summer's end, I'm working on some animated shorts for my youtube channel, fleshing out possible plots for the Garvis comic, and also working on a special secret project that only one of you know about. :iconheplz: The trailer for said project should be up before the end of August. Anyway, that's my dA story and I'm darn proud of it! :) Thanks for reading and here are a few of my other artworks I done did. :P
