I guess I will do one of those as well... Hmmm where to begin? I was always fan of drawings and fantasy world but never had any support when I did draw. Family only did say I only should draw it I can earn money by it but that kinda would kill the fun if I would do stuff only for others and only to get money rather than own stuff and get some fun of it. So I basicly did draw only when I had some time for myself (Which wasnt much sadly). I actually started to draw more once I arrived to Scotland and had more time. I was interduced to DA by a google search while I was looking for advice how to draw an realistic eye. I did make an account here only to thank that person for toturial. But since I already had account here I decided  can as well upload my traditional drawings. I was glad I got some feed backs so soon. I was flattered when I got few offers from people they would pay like 35$ for that one dragon pic I made.

Fable Dragon by Lakword

This kinda encourage me to draw again and put some of my works here. I applied for Glasgow School of art but it did turn out that it was to learn about the art rules and people ideology rather than how to work on own skills and learn new stuff. Also I hated 2 things about it.

1. Art got no rules. Its fun cuz you can do whatever you want and expres yourself. If someone tries to make me expres myself but only by his rules its not really freedom I was looking for in first place

2. Reputation of that school was soooo high it was hard to get there but people I knew who went there were very disapointed with the levels there. More talk than action

So I decided in the end to just stick with my own small drawings and expand skills on my own. I could only do traditional drawings but I wanted to try my skills in animation. I did save for tablet and I was a bit disapointed with it as it was like drawing in the air and it wasnt like I expected it to be. Its odd to draw on slippery piece of plastic while looking at screen. And borders of page were invisable or small move on tablet was a huge move on screen and I really had big problems getting used to it. My first digital arts were such a failure XD Animating stuff did go on low priority plan until I could get better at it. I noticed my digital style and traditional style look nothing alike. i guess new options and new rules forced me to forget what I learned on paper and do stuff other way. I draw with mouse and hair or fur with tablet. Ussualy only using tablet to color stuff. I was about 3 months on DA and I wasnt really active. Real adventure started when I wanted to do something stupid with bro at the end of the summer and we did decide to watch few episodes of MLP FiM just to see whats the big deal about it. We loved it! As much as it was shameful to admit and it really did feel like going against everything what I did belive... It was totally worth it. I really liked show. FLuttershy was my fav main character and I was watching a lot of Brony works on Youtube and DA. Also I really loved season 2 finally. Song was awsome and changelings were cool. I then actually started to chek changeling art and even started to speak a bit with people and comment on stuff. Then I found this guy art :iconsrmario: This specific art... MLP: Under Rain by SrMario It made me interested what was that guy and then someone explained me what OC actually means. I really did not know something like that was even a thing back then. Seemed strange but fun at same time. It kinda gave me the courage to make my own OC. I still think if it wasnt for :iconsrmario: I would not even start drawing MLP related stuff. He gave me courage and did open my eyes on new stuff which was so awsome. This guy became my hero on DA and even better. He did even became my friend. I sometiems worry I bother him too much XD

Anyway... I decided to make my first OC a changeling as well. Since like 99% of people did make ponies (40% of those were actually OP Alicorns XD) so I decided to make something diffrent and make a weak, small and not so ussual looking changeling. Thou I wasnt really good with RP stuff or fanfic thing like this and Flik would just be a decoration OC thing if it wasnt for this guy :iconzeksmorshar:. Zeks did explain me how things work in those and actually helped me more than he could even imagine. I had so much fun talking with him on DA and then on Skype along with :iconeisenfell: that we even decided to make our stories mix together. Well kinda like our OC start together at same place, split up and have own adventures and at one point meet again and continue story together and seperatly as well. Just share the same house. It kinda worked out but Zeks had so many ideas at same time that I got in the story waaaaaay further than him and also since he was so popular the RP responses from him were kinda slowing down so we decided to just minimize our stories. Still Zeks is my BFF and we talk almost everyday and try to become better artists. As did Flik story go on I got better with drawing and even tried some animating. I started to gain watchers but sadly out of like 100 only 3 did actually read the story ;( I had some problems with people who only tried to talk with me only so I could make them some free stuff so I got careful. I only did requests for people I knew for some time and I knew those are good people. I meet many good friends like :iconaz-derped-unicorn: :iconlaw44444: :icontrust-is-holy: :icondrakon-fireblade: :iconbard-of-void: :iconraedin: :iconmrkyuubi: :iconw0nderbolts: :iconzoruaofepic:  :iconkandykorn9::iconsrmario: :iconspyling: :iconzeksmorshar: :icontrust-is-holy: :iconinsanespyro::iconfuture--hearts: and even my love :iconglorhina:. They all helped me in some way during my work on Flik story and my art improvments. Some even did bother to read the story for which Im grateful :D Heh... I had to make some new OC beside FLik as with 1 OC I can only do just few actions. I did gave some part of me to each of my OC so I wont be selling none of them as I see many people do XD

So far DA is not only an art site for me. Its a place where I meet awsome people. I wont lie. I meet some ***** and fake friends here as well but good luck finding place where you wont get those. Its impossable! XD I really realy need to thank some people. Even if it is sounding stupid XD

:iconzeksmorshar: and :icontrust-is-holy: Thanks for helping me with so many problems each day. I know I can be an annoying troll sometimes and I really am grateful that you like me for who Im and for that you guys are trying to protect me from **** even if I dont ask for help. Im lucky to have you two as friends

:iconglorhina: I would never belive anyone a year ago thatits possable to find love of your life on internet. Until I meet you. It really was worried I wont find anyone ever. You proven me wrong. lol I still think youre perfect even if you dont aggre. Youre my little Fluttershy ;) And thanks again with helping em so much with my projects latley :D

:iconspyling: Dude! I dont care what you say! I love you XD Not in way I love Emmy but you know what I mean! I love talking with you and even arguing with you. Love your ideas and therories (Except the one with the box). Always a plesure. And best part is I can always count on your support in many things. I kinda feel guilty Im unable to properly reward you for all your support you always give me.

:iconinsanespyro: You dear sir... You are an As***** and a smartass. You give me nightmeres and putting images in my head that I never wanted to think about. You take extreame pleasure in doing all this and you making me be scared of a freaking pink pony... Still even with all those flaws I somehow find you funny. But seriously dude... Give Flik a brake. You trying too hard to destroy his pureness XD

:iconsrmario: I already told you all I wanted to tell you on Steam. I wont tell it again here but you know youre awsome friend and artist in my eyes! :D



So time passes by and Im on DA almost 2 years now. I improved my animating skills and found new ways to draw stuff as well and improve it. Examples here ;)
OC Preview Animation : Flik by Lakword The Hungry Changeling Part 10 by Lakword Happy Changeling Family by Lakword Flik Glass by Lakword Vella Glass by Lakword Vince Glass by Lakword OC Group Picture! by Lakword Teaseful Vince by Lakword Changelings Dance *NOT VALID ANYMORE* by Lakword Fire Changeling Type by Lakword Tomato goes Badass by Lakword HAPPY BIRTHDAT ZEKS!!! by Lakword Hazard and Vella X-Mass Card by Lakword Kintaro and Heartbeat by Lakword
Hopefully I will stay here for a while longer even if the MLP stuff died by greed and disapproval of some people. I still got fandom which is protecting itself and is trying to have fun ;) Keep up the good work guys. What wont kill us will make us stronger. Sorry for such a long post XD

Also watch those people. They are awsome artists and they are the reason I wanna be even better to at least even match their skill one day. They deserve every watcher out there ;)
