Hey, everybody! Antoni, here, and guess what. I’m on DeviantArt.
For the longest time, I have mainly visited this site when I was a lad of fourteen and I have been getting a lot of creative inspiration from a lot of the fanart I saw. Even more so, I was initially hesitant to join DeviantArt because of certain dumb insecurities I had as an artist, in spite of the fact that I love to draw, especially fanart of my most favorite animated characters. Plus, I was still rather young, as taking criticism well was still in the development department, I only saw making visual art in terms of drawing as a hobby, and I thought that my drawing skills were very much not on par with those people who draw fanart on such a good to an exceptional level.
However, as time went on, I kind of toyed with the idea of being on here because I have some really good reviewer and artist friends and some relatives who have an account on DeviantArt and are very passionate about what they do and what they love. For that, I say more power to them and everything they do.
Yes, there is also some fetish art that I found usually involving characters getting abnormally fat or generally growing in size. Those are the art types I try to avoid, as they seem to promise empty creativity. I always strive to be inspired by fanart or original work which is not only creatively appealing but also enhancing and can cater to my love of animation. Thus, I finally made the decision to become a DeviantArtist not only to support the artists who have inspired me but to also bring my art pieces and passion to the table.
Would I want to make my drawing of fanart a regular thing aside from the YouTube reviews and blog posts I write on Manic Expression, TeamNightSaturn, and Steemit? Probably, because on the one hand, I have a lot of ideas going on in my crazy yet creative mind that I see why not. I have always had an innate desire to draw my favorite character pairings or OTPs, BroTPs and the like from my favorite cartoons, anime, and video games because I have always seen the plausibility in terms of the character chemistry in these pieces of media. On the other hand, it might not be done so regularly because of the time I have to commit to making my fanart come to fruition in terms of not making my illustrations sloppy nor unfinished but polished and well-detailed. Even more so, I have other priorities to accomplish not only as a reviewer, artist, and performer but also as a student. In other words, it might as well be done in my free time, if ever I feel like it or if ever I feel inspired to just do something.
With the fanart that I have so far as well as other ideas swimming on in my brain just wanting to be released, I thought it would be a great idea to be on DeviantArt to not only show my work as an artist who does drawing fanart as a hobby but to also make something of good quality. Moreover, I think it is actually therapeutic to be on here, as I do feel a sense of joy, relief, and gratitude whenever I draw something that I really love and I don’t have to bottle it up.
So, I hope you can follow me on DeviantArt, as I do have some interesting things to present. So far, I am really enjoying my time here, as I am really happy getting to know other artists and the work they have done as of late. As for new drawing-related projects, I intend to do something yet again with my four favorite bruisers in all of animated series history, Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls. Can you tell why I really like these four? Seriously, I am itching to draw more fanart with them as the main subject. Oh and don’t worry, I will definitely put in my Number 1 RRBxPPG OTP, Boomer/Bubbles or Boomubbles, in the works as well, as I have something really interesting for these two.
Until then, this is Antoni wishing you a lovely and warm spring.
