My diviantART story

(My old art is so embarrassing but HERE WE GO!)

Dear Watchers / Friends

My story started out on an…odd note. I had an old account which a friend helped me set up. She introduced me to dA and because I liked drawing she helped me set up an account. Then our friendship turned sour and she logged in to some of my accounts (most of which she helped me set up) and caused a lot of chaos. So as soon as I found out about this, I changed all my passwords and decided to start a new dA so that I could continue my art without her knowing what my new name was.

That brings us to the more silly side of my beginnings here! I had to come up with a name real quick because of the hacking so I wanted to use “apples” as my dA name (was probably eating apples at the time :la: ) but it was already taken. Then I tried “apples-ish”, but I also liked “apples-ness”. Oh what the heck, I thought, let’s make it “apples-ishness”.


I’ve gone though a few subject matter “phases”. It started with Digimon Fanart (I’m putting these into storage again later, so if you want to see some of my oldest art this is your chance!):

Back then, there was not such a thing as a “group” so we had “clubs” instead, a deviantart account that reuploaded art that we sent in via links.


Then my focus became canine art, very much inspired by the craft works of WildSpiritWolf

Here’s some of her art that still gets me all happy about drawing canines.

Here’s some old art for you! I did one drawing of a canine for each country that took part in the World Cup of 2010.

Also started a comic in 2010 (or end 2009, can’t remember) and it was a great experience :)

From 2011 onward I started expanding my subject matter to include other animals besides canines and started drawing humans and did some animation and game art.

And that’s pretty much where I still am presently.

I’m still trying to find my “style” but as for subject matter, I will probably continue drawing humans and animals.


For the future, I want to start working on projects that will be more fulfilling. Currently, I’m working on a long term project that will hopefully come to light later on this year. 


Met some great people since I started six years ago, so have yourselves a mini art feature!
