#ThrowbackThursday

Here's a peek at my experiences starting out at deviantART and some major things that went on throughout my time here.

In the beginning...

The first time I've ever heard of deviantART was back on the late Nintendo NSider Forums' Fan Art board. There was a rule that mentioned "Don't link to deviantART." so naturally I was rather curious about it. ;D

The Heights of Syra'Turle by super-tuler

As time went on, more and more of my friends from NSider's Fan Art board have made their home on dA, such as Arbok-X, Bowser81889, cartoonlion, green-tk, and super-tuler. I then made the plunge in 2008 and I still enjoy being a part of the community here to this day.

Early Days

Wheat by marustagram

I started out on deviantART as MrLuigiFreak101 (gasp) and obviously I was a much younger/immature fellow then. I've made mistakes and learned from them. Made more friends, and lost a few. My friends helped me through those difficulties and I was inspired by cartoonlion and super-tuler to start making and posting art here. dA was a huge help in keeping my sanity as things took a nasty turn in my life.

The Age of Customization

Graffiti Building by AndrewNickson

As dA grew and updated their layouts, I was heavily inspired to learn about profile customization such as Journal and Gallery styles. I began making journal skins and made some for friends. I found out about customizing profile widgets and I made ridiculously heavy use of it.

Mingling About

Crowd by artbytheo

During the past few years, I was able to attend several deviantMEETS to meet new friends!



At these events, I've made strong friendships that I can't imagine what I would be like without them. They've inspired and helped me move forward and start making something of myself, and I'm very grateful to know them. (notable: wrecklinghaldronmarioluevanos)

Identity Shift

Metamorphosis by CrisVector

In 2011, I've made the change to LearlessFeader, coined by Cajunstarwalker. I was eager to use a name that sounds much more mature than my previous name, yet still pays an homage to the original.

Recovery and Keeping Up

Glitch by melonjaywalk

Things have slowed down a bit for me for the past two years due to college and several things that aren't working out the way I had hoped. I've been pretty unorganized, but I'm doing my best to get back into creating and sharing art and some design work here.

deviantART has been my long-term residence online, and it feels great to get back into the groove of things here.

What's next?

Hey, my comp crashed and I likely lost everything not backed up, such as the custom fonts I had downloaded. Do you have a link to the MarioLuigi2 font you created? I know that it is still somewhere on the web, but I don't know where to look. D: That font is one of the most important fonts I downloaded. ): The font was used in several of my files and will no longer work in those files if I need to go back and edit them. T_T Please...I need your help...
