I'm very slow and hardly professional when it comes to Art Trades or Commissions, so if you're someone that's on a tight ship or likes work to be completed fast I recommend not ask me for stuff like that ;P i'm a very lazy Aussie you see :dance:

Before I start my "why i joined DeviantArt" I just want to thank the people that have supported and stood by me despite the huge lack of artistic activity that normally floats around my page :XD: 


I had known about DeviantArt ever since I had to collect landscape pictures for an art project sometime in 2008. But as most of you would have guessed the main reason why I joined DeviantArt was because of the thriving spectacle of not only AVP fans, but Xenomorphs fans, (something I had never seen, a general love for the creatures.) but the main thing holding me back was I could draw for shit :XD: (and no I wasn't a self conscious artist, I wasn't even an artist, had never put effort into any drawing in my life before I joined DA ;)) the main artists that caught my eye that made me really think about joining were :icondrakhand006::iconxenopreddragon::iconmmsmith1777::iconchrisozfulton: 

so I spent a few weeks checking out the locals work. As well as the interaction between the Deviants :nod: yes I'm finding other ways of saying "stalking" ;) because theirs no way of becoming a name on DA without having to stalk a bit :XD: after a while of being to unsure of joining or not I managed to sign up one day and basically send some compliments to people's work, most of the names listed above ;) and was shocked to get replies back. Seeing I was nothing more then a name with no icon :P 

But I had a really bad start despite some awesome welcoming friendships from :icondrakhand006::iconmmsmith1777: that's when I first learnt about how generally unpleasant some guys are on here, they watch you, talking about how great your work is. Get you excited, and then want nothing more then a watch back, or a compliment their way -_- and once you kinda looks successful? They beg for more and ask for shit. But they are all gone now ;) 

This basically made my page look like it would only last a few months. So my strategy for making friends and trying not to be seen as just some lazy moocher :XD:also my plan was to not show off my work or brag and talk about it with anyone unless asked, and when commenting on people's work:nod: as I noticed lots of accomplished artists getting spammed by links from "one-weekers" and feared the idea of my account being seen as nothing more them a similar entity. So my plan was basically, if I was to comment on someone's work it was to talk solely about their work, and how much I enjoyed their art (not in a obsessive kinda way). This strategy, mixed with the help of some semi-known friends and Drak and Smith kept me interested in DA for a few months. Lol

But it wasn't until I met :iconmrskaiz: possibly one of the most interesting fellas on DeviantArt, and talking to him about whatever, did I really take my time here seriously. He was also the first Deviant that actually took an interest in my work :nod: 

He taught me something very important about what makes a person stand out on DA. Your only as exciting as how you present yourself to the community:nod: and those of you who knew SKAIZY while he was very much active around here. He was a gigantic Xenomorph purple hoodie wearing legend! :XD: never had a down beat for the majority of the time I knew him which made any conversation with him delightful :nod: even though he is rarely active on DA and I have  spoken to him rarely on Skype and Facebook, I still consider him a close friend, and very much the reason as to why I started enjoying my time on DeviantArt more :D 

Once I started to become friends with :iconmrskaiz: I soon met a whole heap of others including :iconboo-tay: who back then was called "Dragon" something :XD: (I remember ;))and  :iconjkillyleagh953: and slowly through the year 2012 I got to a simple status that I to this day enjoy :) and eventually met the love of my life on DA :nod: :iconshewolfey: 

I learnt a lot about who I am thanks to DeviantArt :nod: and while I have had fallouts with the sight. It's still not a half bad place to talk to AVP fans :XD: 

But I better stop here as this is only meant to be how I joined DA :XD:
