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 365-DaysOfDoodles
My first deviation, doodle #1

Everything started as a very personal project on my Instagram account. I admit I was a little 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've 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.

 #141 The Little Mermaid by 365-DaysOfDoodles#182 Exposure by 365-DaysOfDoodles

 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

:bulletblue:Do you sketch first or do you draw entirely with pens?
I always make a pencil sketch first. Only then I add ink.
:bulletblue:What are the sizes of your notebook?
I draw on a 9X14 cm Moleskine, acid-free paper
:bulletblue:What tools do you draw with?
I draw with pencils for sketch and Staedtler ink pens. I often use a white paint as corrector for the lines inside black spaces.
:bulletblue:How are your blacks so even?
Firstly, I ink everything traditionally. I've been doing the coloring part digitally. After everything is done I increase contrast levels at Photoshop CS3.

Have you done a doodle of Harley Quinn? I didn't see one in your gallery. I bet you could do a great rendition of Harley and the Joker. I would love to see that!

Your journal doodles are fantastic! I love looking at them. :3
I have a couple questions:
What markers do you use?
Do you use a white-ink marker too?
Do you first sketch with pencil?

It's always awesome artists like you who are just so nice and awesome to inspire me to do better. I think I may try to do this eventually, it seems like a good way to improve looking at how great you are.
