My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 12:36 PM
or: An Ode to deviantART

14 Years!

This also makes you half my current age, which is sweet. Guess I've always had a thing for noticeable numbers. Speaking of which... my very first account I created with you tells me we've already had our 10th anniversary this January. Dude, since 2004, you've been a huge part of my creative development.

Seriously, it's crazy how much I've learned and how many extraordinary people I've met here, starting with the most amazing and talented folks from all over the world and even my neck of the woods (Frankfurt, Germany - back then, that was pretty extraordinary and most coincidental.) Funny, how simple comments turned into regular and long hangout and discussion sessions in dA chatrooms and eventually grew into devMEETs in cities all over Europe! (haven't managed to grab one in the States so far) And I'm so glad to have met the most amazing artists - painters, photographers, artisans, writers, 3D artists and cosplayers! It's extraordinary - whenever I met a new deviant it didn't matter where we grew up or how different we ought to have been to begin with - sharing the same passion for creativity (no matter the kind) really gave me the feeling of reuniting with a long lost soulmate - no exception (...so far :B :D). For those of you who visit conventions - it's similar, but way more intense. :D Which reminds me, I'm really sad I didn't get to chat some more with my latest IRL acquaintance, the AMAZING GeorgiaLe-FlayART ! (if you don't know her you should be very ashamed.) Girl, you rock! :heart:

In hindsight, it's pretty shocking to me how much I've learned and how significantly I've expanded my creative horizon in the past decade here, starting off with some uploaded drawings, photomanipulations and random photos (= results of a complete lack of understanding of apertures, stops, lenses or filters). The more I learned, the more interested in everything I became. Got my first wacom, practised some digital drawing and BOOM, made the leap into the 3D world, which had seemed so complex and intimidating from the start, and which I simply cannot live without anymore. :love:

I think it's pretty safe to say that without dA, I probably wouldn't have taken the creative path in my professional life, i.e. doing my master's in filmmaking, focusing on cinematography and production design, so that now I'm more than ready and eager to plunge into the development of videogames and their design and cinematics departments - something that had been long predicted by my LAN party dudes (do kids still do those these days? :XD:), but I'd been too aloof to take it seriously, no matter how much of a passionate gamer I'd been all my life. :D

So yeah, thanks again, deviantART (I'm wearing my dA caps, hoodie and T-shirt with pride) and

Happy 14th Birthday! :party:


I'm gonna start featuring artists in my journals from now on, and I'd like to start wiiiiith:


:icontigaer: - one of my lovely friends from 'back in the day', and I'm so glad we're still in touch! - Terragen had seemed too complex and 'howthehellcanyoudothat' to me back then - MUCH LOVE, CHRIS! You know I adore your art! ;) :kiss:
tigaer 's works always take my breath away - he's got an amazing sense for composition, colours and details. (guess I picked up my obsession for details from you, or at least subconsciously! XD) I could spend hours, just losing myself in his sceneries and the feeling of vast epicness that overpowers you - in a great sense.

If you checked out my mod "Shepard's Lounge/Office" in the latest version of XPS / XNA, did you notice any bugs/texture issues? It's being ported to SFM all right, no reports/complaints so far... but then I come across this: fav.me/d798wce :hmm:

Hey, I used your Leon Kennedy coat for my art, I hope you don't mind :) I'll probably use it in future artworks if it's OK with you.
