It's been a few weeks since I first joined deviantART. At the time my only use of the site was to host my D&D pictures so I could link to them in my forum posts. As could be expected, my dedication to my DA page was minimal then.
But a few days later, I began my first ever marathon of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. What I first intended as a simple run-through of the first season grew exponentially out of control until I finished singing along Life in Equestria at the end of the third season. I became a Brony that day, and my use of this site changed accordingly.
's and Mr. Andrew Francis' birthdays were fast approaching, and I decided to draw a fanart of Wildfire and Shining Armor as per suggestions by the EQD. Once I finished them, I decided it couldn't hurt to submit them, so I did, and started joining FiM groups in DA as well. What resulted was a plethora of happy meetings. I met many new people, all of whom I was glad to be acquainted with, and I also discovered many awesome artists whose work never ceased to inspire. It could be said that my life as a Deviant never began until I sent in those two pictures.
This is my first journal entry, and absolutely not the last; I hope to enjoy all the joys that DA and Bronydom can offer, and have a blast drawing fanart in the process. I also would like to meet even more people, be inspired and inspire others myself, and rejoice in the friendship that kind people can offer me. I relish the things that may lay in the future, both here in DA and 'there' in the rest of my life. A turning point, if I may. May this turn be for the better.
This is Meto Maelstrom, signing out.
