Super Mario Bros by TVsKyle

That is one very brilliant, amazing, and interesting deviation! Kyle, you've done an awesome job with this piece! What a great idea you...

With tons of Deviant Art users telling the stories of their experiences on the site in celebration of its 14th birthday... I bet now is the time for me to talk about my experiences with DA, as well.

I have a great artistic talent (or so I proclaim myself to have), and I've been drawing ever since I was just a little kid. But it wasn't until my 19th birthday that I discovered DA. In fact, it was my artistic talent and experiences that called me to join this site, and I'm proud to have been here for three years. For someone who's been drawing since his youth, I had to start somewhere, just like all the rest of us... but quite enough about that. I'm the kind of person who likes to keep much of his private life, shall I say, reserved.

Meanwhile, in all the time I've spent on DA, I've come to appreciate the artistic quality of the works of nearly every deviant in this community, but there is room for exceptions. I see that this site does contain a number of works that are directly copied from copyrighted sources (such as copyrighted official artworks, photo-manipulation, screen captures, etc. -- all of which I see as violations of the ToS), and even drawings that look sketchy, or unimaginative, or like they were made in kindergarten art time. In fact, I don't appreciate these types of drawings... I only appreciate DA submissions that their artists spent considerable time and effort on. Again, I do not condone copyright infringement or lack of imagination.

My current art style takes its influences predominantly from Western animation and comics. When I first started uploading work to DA, my art style had some aspects influenced by anime, but I've since diluted those considerably. I can't claim any specific work as an influence on my art style. But that doesn't matter; what matters is that I like my current style a lot better than the previous versions.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Born in Savannah, Georgia in the early 1990s, I am the son of a civil engineer and a former registered nurse. I have lived in my current hometown of Cary, North Carolina since 1994.
I have a versatile personality which allows me to possess many different interests in many different topics and people. I claim that I possess a great degree of intelligence, and I prove to be very literate -- I am able to read and write proficiently, and though my primary language is English, I speak several foreign languages as well. I show a diverse interest in studying, and though I may not have had a proper education (I was taught only in a couple of primary schools, an elementary school, and then I was homeschooled for a few years), I love to show a diverse interest in the world around me.
I possess a great artistic talent, and an art style that has cartoonish characteristics but is mostly realistic. I hate anything that is considered immoral, have zero tolerance for swearing or curses, and will stand no nonsense whatsoever. I despise much of the changes that have occurred in the world over the past 10 years, and I think that history would have been much better without such changes.
I am a born-again Christian (though not baptized), and I attend church and Sunday school regularly. My father once worked as a deacon.
