Before I ever wanted to be an artist, I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to write stories that would entertain people who might be a little like me, female, but not obsessed with romance and easily avoidable drama; interested in action, but wishing there was more of it geared toward female readers. I developed a fondness for fantasy and sci-fi in particular at this point, but as I tried to write (and I gave it a few years) I found that I could never finish what I started, and it became increasingly apparent that stories like the ones I was attempting to tell, could be difficult to express solely through wiriting. That was why I wanted to start drawing.
So once I decided to start drawing, I picked up the first how-to-draw book that caught my attention. That book was about drawing manga, and at that point, I had no idea that it was such a big deal. Actually, I still usually tend to draw manga or something resembling it just because that was the first thing I learned so it's easier. There are a lot of things I like about the manga style art, although I actually don't much care (or always know) if what I draw fits the style completely. If I want to do something differently from how I normally see it done, I do it differently. The books are my guides, not rules that I follow, and first and foremost, I still want to use comics to tell an entertaining story in my own way.
Other than that, I like to draw flowers with oil pastels, although I'm still working out a way to store the drawings (and to share them over the internet for that matter). If you've never worked with oil pastels before, they're like really big, really soft crayons for big kids and adults, and they blend on the page. Unfortunately, they tend to make little gooey balls that fall off the paper (and taste like wax, but how I know that is a story not worth telling). Anyway, if I do find a way to share these pictures (that doesn't involve my scanner getting gunked up with said gooey balls) I'll do so. Unless that happens though, you probably won't be seeing them. So that's a basic summary of my background in art. Hope you weren't too bored by it, and I hope you enjoy my being on deviantart as much as I do. :)

I'm an artist, but I still have a lot to learn and a lot to practice before I earn bragging rights. I started out wanting to write novels, but because I could never finish one, I decided to try to make my stories into comics instead. It's going... Actually I'll let you decide how it's going. I have no idea.
