I'm a second year student in the BA Game Design program at Sheridan college. Aside from drawing and gaming, I love sewing, snowboarding, collecting figures (especially dragons) and wearing Lolita fashion.
At first I wasn't gonna do this, but I found my old galleries and laughed my ass off at my old art, so I HAD to share it. Just. Wow.

So I've been on DA since March 19, 2004, when I was 13. I heard about DA from people on Neopets, and came here to share my art and learn how to draw digitally. My first account was OkapiCrazed.
My first deviation was this wacky pencil crayon drawing:
 Xaiiro the Mystic by OkapiCrazed
My first forays into digital art were on Paint, where I usually drew Neopets for myself and my friends, like these:
 Hjaar's new Lupish Look by OkapiCrazedKilala Art Trade by OkapiCrazed
My first tablet-drawn drawing was done in Photoshop 0.7, though I soon switched to CS:
 Dhoni, my new Chari by OkapiCrazed
I started out drawing really light, sketchy drawings that I colored through trial and error, and this was also a time where I used default brushes to make really tacky backgrounds (which, at the time, I thought were really awesome):

I struggled to "find my style" for many years, and looking back I can actually see bits and pieces of influence from artists that inspired me at the time. Check out my funky attempts at anatomy:

I also began developing personal characters and species, including a fursona:

Eventually I became fond of using clean, crisp lineart, and it became a sort of flag for my art to have clean lines and vibrant colors:

For a short while I really enjoyed using the pencil tool in Photoshop, and had some fun with colors and pixels:

On May 27, 2007 I made my second DA account, Bizcuit. I used the name Bizcuit/Biz online for many years, and really expanded my artistic abilities while using this account.
My first deviation as Biz:
 say hello by Bizcuit

I really pushed myself to add depth and atmosphere to my art, and went through a few phases in my style.

At some point I really pushed my anime style, and made a lot of fan art for prints:

In 2009 I wanted a fresh start after graduating high school, and created a new alias for myself as Sharky. I also fell in love with sharks, and created my albino shark pal here that my account is named for:

I was still drawing animals as well as people, and my style evolved into something much closer to how I draw today:

Aaaaaand finally, my current account albinosharky came along on December 15, 2011.
I was quite into the MLP:FiM fandom and was the lead artist behind Canada's first Brony convention, BronyCAN. A lot of my earlier work on this account is of ponies, and I kind of slowed down in terms of artistic improvement. I hope to keep on moving forward and never settling for less than my best, and all I can do is practice. Here are a few select pieces from my gallery that I feel showcase my development as an artist and a person.

Thanks for checking out my DA story! I'm now 23 years old and working toward a bachelor degree in video game design. Art has always been a part of my life, and thanks to the internet I've been able to grow exponentially in many different ways. It's been a long journey as an artist, and as much as DA frustrates me at times, I am grateful that it gave me the opportunity to share my art with all of you lovely people, and for opening my eyes to the vast wonders of art of the many people I admire.
