When I joined, I didn't even have my own internet connection at home. I didn't get internet access at home until I was in grade 11, in 2008. We finally convinced my mother that the internet is required to succeed in school now and that we're smart enough to avoid creeps. When my friends learnt I was going to have internet, they convinced me to get an account here and upload literally all of my pictures in one sitting. I didn't have internet yet, but I was at my friends house and we sat down and got it started. I made my account, and uploaded 73 pictures in one sitting. Those are all the first several pages of my gallery, and the reason why there's such a drastic amount of random style changes everywhere. There was no particular order to how we posted them, we just threw them all on and made an artists statement of "Will write later" on each one. 

So I've been a member since 2008, and I've tried to remain active for most of that time. 

Here's some art to share:

Lonely, Not Alone by slshimerdla

This is the first thing I ever added to my favorites. It was on the front page at the time, as far as I can remember, and I thought it was interesting. It was similar to some of the ideas I had been attempting (poorly) at the time, with angels and death.

Dino Dude 4 and 6 Years Later by gaypurpledinosaur

This is from the moment my style changed until fairly recently. That first horrible drawing was the first thing I drew using block structures for anatomy, and adding clothes over top of the figure rather than as a single unit. I used to draw the head, then the shirt, then the arms, then the legs, then the shoes. Now I draw the entire figure and pose, then flesh out the body, and THEN add clothes. 

Fairy Flower Girl 6-7 Years Later by gaypurpledinosaur

I feel like this is the best example of how I used to draw compared to how I currently draw. I used to read a lot of manga and watch a lot of anime, and I got used to drawing very thin characters with very large heads and very long legs. Now I study real people and it looks just a thousand times better. 

Totempole Goddess-Mother Earth by gaypurpledinosaur

I love paper mache, but it's so messy to do and takes up so much space and time that I don't ever do it anymore.

Pixel Avila by gaypurpledinosaur

I enjoy trying new things, and I find pixel art to be so charming. This is my best attempt at it so far.

Hell Hound by gaypurpledinosaur

And again, trying new things. I want to make more of these guys, but once again, there's an issue of free time and supplies.

Thanksgiving Dress by gaypurpledinosaur
I do love sewing as well.

 Interview with a Vampire by gaypurpledinosaur
This...this thing is the most popular thing in my gallery. It has nearly half the views of my main page. It has the most favorites, the most comments...just...ridiculous. I would redraw it, but I feel like it wouldn't be nearly as popular and that this one would continue to get all of the love still anyways. I never thought that a lame joke with my sister would get me so many favorites or views.

Dinosa by gaypurpledinosaur
This is Dinosa, he in the Gay Purple Dinosaur. That is all.

All the mains over the years. by gaypurpledinosaur
Annnd we'll finish it off with this. It needs an update since I have...yet again...more characters. Some stories died with artistic improvements...others have much more depressing ends. Arkin's story ends before it begins due to losing friends with characters in the story. I still miss everyone a lot.

So that's that. A bunch of random art. Enjoy.

Fly Away - WIP by gaypurpledinosaur
Fly Away - WIP
I used multiple references for this. senshistock.deviantart.com/art… i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/0… annnnd a few others of magpies as I skimmed through Google images. 

I want to colour this and give it a background. I actually attempted the same picture several months ago in a sketchbook and just couldn't get any of the poses right, so I gave up on it. It's not very often that I go back to the same idea after a few months. Usually if I fail once, I call that idea garbage.

Anyways, this still isn't the greatest picture ever, and I actually still prefer the first picture I drew of her. But I felt like drawing her again. Still no name.

Missed You by gaypurpledinosaur
Missed You
So many things went wrong with this picture...I messed up both of their hair, so I decided colouring it might make me happy...but it seems like I've forgotten how to colour properly...or the lighting in this room is just awful...either way, Kaz turned out waaaay too tan, and Avila's dress was way too dark..and Kaz wound up with orange hair somehow...it was all just awful. So I had to pull out pencil crayons to go over all the horrible marker mistakes. 

Soooo, I have to make up an excuse for the tan, probably being that Kaz has been adventuring for the past while and is just visiting town and saying hi to Avila. Having not been inside most days, a tan has appeared. 

I'm bad at making excuses. 

I'll colour something better later.

Anyways, Avila was always the bubbly and happy sibling, so she's all "Let me cling to you while you're here" and poor silent Pipsqueak won't say or do anything to stop her.

Angle Practice by gaypurpledinosaur
Angle Practice
I took a bunch of lousy selfies over the course of a few days at different angles and with different faces so I could try to transfer them over to my drawings. After failing at my attempts to draw the relationship between my own nose and my glasses, I gave up and drew Kaz instead. We have the same hair flip in the front, so it works. (Ironically, Kaz had the flip first, my hair kinda started it after I already had the character.) 

They aren't the greatest, so they're going to remain as sketches.

Practice by gaypurpledinosaur
Practice
I was looking up ear references...ears are really ugly and I still don't think it looks right. I also wanted to try new things with the nose and junk. So Kaz got to be the test subject this time.

I plan on colouring this eventually.
