On Saturday i got a message from dA saying that it had been a whole year since i had joined.
Time does in fact fly. Too fast for me.
I pretty much started from square one when i got onto dA. I cannot express enough how much i'm glad i had at least some experience in Gmod before i joined. Within 12 months good god have i improved. :devagtf: was the first to welcome me into the community, i did some some pictures with him and it simply went from there. Since i was a stupid 15 year old back then and hadn't gotten through a whole lot of synapse pruning i was pretty much still a kid. Despite my age, just that it was how i acted. Thanks to my jolly ol' attitude i managed to attract some attention since i inexplicably dicked around with ~XtremeTerminator4
and around that time is when i met Therus. Things went swimmingly between us considering that he was, at least how i'm going to put it "A white knight." And then came the fanart. Since i was acting like ~Sirhardcoreelite
at the time i deserved all that came to me. I managed to turn things around and i evidently made amends with Xtreme. I was pretty much Bambi on ice and too ignorant at the time to realize how much of a "figure" in this context to the community. Therus came back on a GoW pic i did with Cole. With a different attitude towards me, of course i wasn't exactly warmed up to it due to the events a few months back. And then we clicked we both realized our burning passion for killing off MLP's Plot device and dead weight.
And then i managed to make amends with him.
I started to grow in popularity since i started doing comics about people. Of which many liked a lot. Just for my batshit spontaneous sense of humor. And then along came *SamTheOverlord
Sam was sorta like me back when i started, and that it meant a lot to him that such a "Famous" gmodder, or well known as i'm going to put it, was replying and giving him feedback. Sam really really has improved in his work, in a shorter timespan than i have. During the near end of the School year i got a Skype and one of my first calls ever was with him.
Words cannot express the amount of love i have for Skype, and how it's helped me connect better with the deviants here in the community. Over the summer i managed to get in better connections with a lot of deviants, *Therus-77
:darkrenegade92: (DarkShadow) ~KawaiiAstrix
And Filly Moonshine. (Also known as Sonicblastsomethingnumbersofthingy)
Then school started again.
That hasn't stopped me.
From then on i grew even further. I managed to get *TheInvertedShadow
's respect and now him and i are in good relations. :devtonjcnj: and i became good friends after our brief encounters in Skype chats, and my efforts to help him with "Brony with a Shotgun" which now has become "The late and Unusual Subscriber Milestone 2" which i cannot express how glad i am to be helping him produce it, as well as how fun it's been in the process. Tony had been aware of me during the start of "Reign of Terror" as i'm going to call it and shyed away from me up until August, or the near end of July. We clicked ever since he realized i liked
so much and since he's pretty much Twilight Sparkle fan #1, we've both had a mutual understanding. He really is appreciative of what i've done as well as i have for his.
Then i became moderator for the dA Team. That was a rather interesting experience. I'm not going to bother with that anymore.
I personally am going to say that i don't think that i'm deserving of all the popularity, all of that should be going to people who are absolutely fantastic at Gmod/SFM and are great at editing their pictures. Like ~JuavT
I'm a tad self-conscious about myself, and of course someone will probably tell me different and that i do deserve what i have. Of which i am more than appreciative of.
As much of a douche i have been, i'd like to thank all of you. For putting up with me and my biased personality. As well as commenting, watching, and favoriting my work. Thank you all. And for those who i have not mentioned needn't worry because you matter to me as well.I look forward to another great year.
Thanks, and have fun.
TB you're still not funny
