There are wonderful artists at every turn here. There are pieces to learn from and new things to discover. There are friends to meet and feelings to be shared. Above all else, this little haven offers the like-minded individuals of the world, whose works well deserve being shared, to grow and become better themselves. I appreciate the time and effort of those who work everyday to make this that kind of place.

Heck, why not.
So anyway, I joined waaaaay back in 2008, on February 20th. Yup. Back then I drew from reference and tried to match it.
(my first submission)
I searched dA for art of my favorite TV shows and video games, and slowly started watching a few artists (not gonna mention any names this whole journal, 'cause I'll forget someone).
(Totally obsessed with Bleach a bit, and Fire Emblem and Golden Sun.)
Then I started joining groups and doing things like contests

Traditional Drawings and Paintings
These two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.
Pictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.

Bull by TimurKhabirov:thum
“Mistique Studio” is the rather-too-professional-sounding title for the collective artistic output of Misti Hope Wudtke, ostensibly a human being from the planet known locally as Earth. She currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, where she tries to find time for artwork in between professional development courses at UW (computer science) and working part-time in her Real Life field (GIS).
Misti works almost exclusively with watercolors, since acrylics dry out too fast and oils smell bad. Her favorite subjects are fantasy creatures, songbirds, horses, and pretty much anything except people, because hands are so blessed hard to draw. Yes, My Little Ponies were her favorite toy when she was little, and No, she does not like the new ugly ones, thank you very much.
In her spare time, Misti enjoys long walk in dark forbidding forests, exercising all the rights and responsibilities of a crazy cat lady, and talking about herself in the third person.
