My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 11:24 PM
My deviant story is not one of the longest, I'm here since January 24th. As you may already know, I have started 2014 with the objective of drawing 1 doodle a day. For the whole year. (:

 #1 You're scarier than you think by Picolo-kun
My first deviation, doodle #1

Everything started as a very personal project on my Instagram account. I admit I was a bit afraid of joining dA and submitting my project in here.

In part, that was  because I don't think I can express myself in English as well as I can with my main language - which is Portuguese. Another reason was that I came across deviantART through very famous deviations so I used to see dA as a fancy art gallery, not as a digital community.  

Countdown by yuumei
guess which artwork first got me into dA? Yep, Yuumei's Countdown.

I was on high school when I discovered this site. It took me some time to figure out how deviantART really worked.

dA is about sharing your artwork disregarding how famous or "fancy" it is. These artists here are different in style, theme, media and colors. However, all of them are able to tell their own story. That's the way I wanted my art to be seen.

I was really surprised that so many people were interested in my art! It helped (and it still helps!) me to stay loyal to the 365 Days of Doodles project and to keep improving my doodles. 

#13 I want to see the sea by Picolo-kun#19 Show me your true color by Picolo-kun
 #141 The Little Mermaid by Picolo-kun#182 Exposure by Picolo-kun

 The feedback I got on dA (from anatomy issues to my pictures' quality) wouldn't be possible if I kept the project on Instagram or Facebook. The biggest advantage of being on dA is that it's a community. People here are very very often interested in the same stuff as you (or at least in art in a bigger sense of it heheh...).

I hold deviantART and the people I met here very dear to me. My username may say that I have only 365 days of deviantART but I wouldn't quit this place for anything. Thank you all for the great time!

I love your goal of 365 days of doodle, I too started this year with a goal of drawing a picture everyday.... I even got Facebook to help me make a list of 365 things but new University studies, break ups and moving pushed it right off track. After seeing how much you love it and the difference in your art (mine is terrible and I need all the help I can get) I might start up again.

Thanks for inspiring me XD!

I'm sorry for pointing out that backwards hand one time ;v;'

But I'm glad you've enjoyed your stay and had so much fun. it does suck a little bit that you've become a little harder to reach or get a response from, but that's to be expected with such a dramatic fanbase increase. x'D

Keep drawing dude! Cheers ;v;

Your work is extraordinary. I've never seen anything like it. Congratulations for being able to both express your unique personality and tell your own story in a single picture a day.
JadasArtVision Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I don't see how you have the time to do a "doodle" a day.  Many of them are incredibly detailed and should be called "Drawings" because they are so good.  How do you manage? Is it just for this year or will you continue the theme next year?

I admire you so much for keeping that challenge with (it seems) such ease! I wouldn't be capable to do it! I have so much things to do in my everyday (from university to family issues) that it seems just amazing for me, I wait everyday to see what are you going to upload next!
You're an amazing artist, you have a great backstory, and you don't have such a bad English as you feared haha
I love your style and it inspires me a lot, so keep up the good work and enjoy this loving community for much more than 365 days! :D

Gostei muito da sua história, acho que até me motivou para não desistir tão cedo, eu ainda tenho ainda uma longa "jornada" para melhorar meus desenhos!

well, glad you got on here. LOVE your work! 
isaroncoli Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2014
Sua arte é foda e sinceramente me sinto feliz ao dizer nas redes sociais, onde possuo amigos do exterior, que um artista que eles gostam vem da mesma terra que eu. Descobri recentemente que você pretende atender à uma convenção em são paulo e gostaria de saber se é a comic con ou comic con XP pois seria ótimo passar pela sua loja lá (ou exposição dependendo do que vai fazer).
