My journey: Click to see How I got here

This is officially the last art I will make and have made being 14 years old and in under 2 hours I shall be 15!
Ahhh finally finished! ;D And after all that stressing over ideas I found one in the last minute and finished it before my 'late' bedtime *^*

>~< I do quiet like how this turned out and I can't say I'm not proud :'D although satisfaction never lasts long!

:heart: I just have no words; this was an immense amount of fun though I apologize I couldn't stream the lot of it! My internet cut out for quite a bit (1 hour to be exact) and it was fixed the moment I started recording so aha, bad timing eh?

But then again now there's a speedpaint to watch! :'D

:meow: Well what can I say?
This has been one fantastic year with everyone and I'm more than grateful for all the friends I've made, things I've learned, and inspiring art I've seen! :aww:

So thank you all!
^-^ I hope to continue to grow and learn more on my stay here :'D

And I hope you all had a lovely 2012 too~!
Happy Holidays & Happy /early/ New Years! :)
The Symbolism
As many of you know, I went through numerous sketches and concepts and quite a few characters before settling on this. I wanted to draw something and showed my year's worth of life here since it's been such a big part of me ever since I joined. I quite remember the day I turned 14 and how I never imagined this past 12 months would've gone by so quickly. I owe many thanks to this great community of artists, photographers, writers, sculptures, and all of the like- for the support and inspiration I found here. All my watchers and all my friends, I couldn't have had any more of a loving group of people so that's that, haha, thank you! :hug: As for how that relates to this, my idea was to bring all those experiences and all my emotions into one drawing, something I could redo in the following years before my birthday. I realized I was thinking far too hard about what I wanted to do when I could just let myself draw what I felt like drawing since that's when the best results are acheived ^-^ I started off by drawing my character Sen! Her design was meant to represent a tainted purity. I joined the deviantArt community as a naive 13 year old, two months before turning 14. I was fairly childish and nearsighted; only thinking of the future as far as I could see it which was never more than a few days ahead. Art had always been my escape from the harsher reality and though it still is, I've learned to accept many things I had cowardly ignored in the past. Thanks to many friends and experiences. I suppose Sen was meant to have a very whimsical and reserved look here while running through a forest of birch trees with painted eyes in a winter morning. Being watched by the nonexistant. Winter is my favorite season but to me, although it usually is a symbol of an ending; the year's end and the end of life for many- is it not also a beginning? Where the past is left to be and the future is given a chance to grow and move on? There is no beginning without an end and I believe that with the end of this year, it only means I'm running towards a new start. I hope very much that this comes through in the drawing and I've poured every bit of myself into this and I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do! :heart: Thank you.
