Everyone was doing these so I figured it wouldn't hurt if I wrote mine >.> I'm probably like half a year (figuratively) late but still
My history with DeviantART began in 2010. In 2010 I was 10-11, and I was... Stupid, to put it nicely. Also I wasn't quite familiar with the pokemon universe yet, rather I was a big fan of Mario. I played a lot of Mario games, such as Superstar Saga, which I still enjoy very much, Super Mario 64 DS, Galaxy and lots more. I liked the games so much I often looked up various pictures of Mario, Luigi and all the related characters, until once I came across Nintendrawer's Mario comic page here on DA. I still remember that it was her Super Mario Bros comic page 18 at the back of my hand, and I enjoyed it so much I read the whole thing, and it's still ongoing. She was one of my very first inspirations to me, as I looked through her gallery over and over again.
At this point I was drawing like crazy, with passion I've never been able to draw with ever again. Around at this time I started becoming a fan of Pokemon, I can still remember spending lots and lots of time in Bulbapedia, studying the various kinds of interesting pokemon. I started drawing them, too, and I was fairly proud of my works. So proud, in fact, that I wanted to make a DeviantART account too, to share my art with people and appreciate others'.
As I said, I was very stupid. I was also even more of a crybaby then than now. I was fairly new with English and the Internet, I couldn't navigate very well and was very very afraid to make accounts in social networks myself. I'd usually ask my brother or my sister to help me with managing with a laptop, but I genuinely thought they'd poke fun at me for wanting to make a DA account, so I kept my wishes to myself for several months.
Then came New Year 2011. I made a wish to somehow make a DA account, and then literally on the next day, January 1st, 2011, I worked up the guts to ask for help. And what do you know, they didn't make fun of me.
I was overjoyed and couldn't be happier. But then there was a hard decision to make: my nickname. I was also into the Kirby universe as well at the time, so I mixed the words Pokemon, Kirby and Mario, and an account by the name of Pokirio was born.
This was the very first deviation I've ever uploaded to DeviantART:
And these are some of my oldest works:
Yes, as you can see, my artsies were pretty terrible xD At least I made progress... I hope. I also made shitty fakemon but I'm afraid I won't be able to find any. I can remember though that the name of the 3rd stage of my grass starter was "Tulienonsterron", ahahaha, yes, I didn't quite know how the making fakemon process actually went, and again, the stupid thing
Anyway, my "career" in DeviantART went pretty swimmingly. I guess. Some time passed until I came across CookiemagiK and Krissi001's accounts full of funny little spherical creatures, called emoticons, which you see pretty much everywhere in DA. I came to like them a lot, and they had just enough tutorials in their galleries to fire me up and inspire me.
And thus my very first emoticon animation was born:
And while I was looking for the animation, I found MORE OLD STUFF, yay! I'm not even ashamed to show it since it's so fun.
I became more interested in emoticons than my regular artwork. I started to realize that slowly but surely as I improved over the months.
And then... I FLIPPED. I slowly became enraged and deleted all the non-pixel drawings from my gallery, thinking I was becoming real good at emotes and real bad at everything else and that drawing wasn't my thing anymore.
Of course, several days after I realised that was a pretty silly thing to assume and began filling the gallery with drawings again. I've since regretted letting my emotions take over, as I honestly like to look at my old stuff and see how much progress I've achieved.
At some point in 2012 I changed my nickname to Sylvaur since I didn't like Pokirio anymore.
And... That's just about it. Since that time I've been drawing nonstop.
I've hit my highs
And I've hit my lows.
And I'm so grateful for the three (and a half) years of my presence here in DeviantART. Not only did it serve me a major boost in my knowledge of the English language, it also helped me improve so much an an artist. And, of course, it's where I acquainted with so many wonderful people here. *_*
