Wow I guess everybody is doing these so I may as well too. I've been doing art digitally for about 6 years. I got a tablet when I was 12, and I joined DA, lying about my age. Well. I don did got banned because yeah. I didn't understand that sprite edits weren't okay to post. So I waited and rejoined.
Anyway, I've had this account for 5 years. I joined almost as soon as I turned 13. I had always LOVED drawing, and I always got yelled at and paper got taken away from me a LOT at school. I liked making characters for stories that never really got written. I mean, over the 5 years I've been here, I'm always astonished how much I've actually improved. I started out as AmmyRox (after Amaterasu from Okami) then continued into KaoFoxx (after my at-the-time-sona) then finally to Kaokay. Which is kind of a pun, like when you're annoyed with someone asking you to do something you say "Kay! Okay!!" so yeah. Here's some improvement chart and stuff
2009: Really bad OCs and one adoptable I didn't know what to do with since I had no idea what an adoptable WAS.
2010: I was really obsessed with Invader Zim because my friend was and yeah. I never posted the horrid comic we wrote together (our Irken OCs lived with Zim and Dib and had their babies) and if you read the description on the Umbreon, even that was about IZ. I still think Invader Zim is cool but I mean. It just brings back embarrassing memories.
2011: CATS. Thanks it's all your fault. and yes, Technoo started out as literally a memecat. FIRST DRAWING OF KAO. How embarrassing. That last drawing took me a REALLY long time to do. I remember livestreaming it and someone coming into the stream and saying "That's one sexy beast" and I was like uh.
2012: I got into MLP and then Portal. Then for some reason I stated doing this really dumb looking "sketchy" thing??? seriously though wtf was I thinking. For some reason my art got a lot of comments. Idk I never really get many comments anymore? I dunno I drew a LOT this year. Improved quite a bit too. I'm still Ammyrox at this point but I signed some stuff as Kao, I had wanted to change it already. I also had an ask blog for my pony oc. Don't look for it. Please. Anyway yeah. LOTS of improvement this year. There are a few things I really like even still from the summer. Sorry for the LOADS of posting here there's really no other way to summarize how much I drew and improved this year. At the VERY END of the year I got into homestuck.
2013: Wow 2012 was a big year for me. But last year I did quite a bit too! So here we goooo.... I did a few cutouts, along with my first attempts at digital painting. This is another year that I actually am still pretty pleased with a few pieces!! I FINALLY got to change my username. Twice. KaoFoxx and then finally Kaokay
THIS YEAR: Lots of improvement even still!! I've been experimenting and drastically improving with painting and coloring in general, and I'm proud of how far I've come!! I hope you all continue with me in my journey as I keep on improving and growing This year I finally got a larger tablet, and my wrist problems have completely gone away, since I'm now drawing ith my ARM rather than my wrist. This makes drawing easier, faster, and better for me.
