I never knew this site existed!

Hi! I just made my account a few minutes ago so I'm still trying to figure out my way around this site. I've seen so many sites like this one made for uploading art and interacting with a community... but I have never seen this one in all the years I've been online!

I'm kind of scared to draw because I'm older and so many artists start out as kids or teenagers it makes me feel silly to have such a low skill level. This site seems really friendly and welcoming so I'm not so scared to learn here! It's never too late to learn, right? I also see that this site isn't as active as other ones which also makes me feel better, a smaller community is less intimidating!

My primary interests are manga/anime related (if you couldn't tell by my username) so that is the style I hope to get good at. I also hope to learn realism type painting, I would love to be able to draw animals! I also play some video games. I've only ever drawn a few times on paper so I hopefully my digital drawings don't look too bad.

Well, I'm really bad at introductions and I just realized I should say a bit more about who I am! I'm 20 years old, female, and I live in the United States. I think I'm kinda boring but I hope to make some friends here and get good at drawing!

Re: I never knew this site existed!

Hey ! big_smile Welcome to the family ! Im sure u'll like this site and make friends its indeed a very friendly community smile ! there's not any age limit or anything in arts, here we have people from all ages so dont worry(and ur not old to begin with)
btw really nice username (from durarara right? ..izaya is my fav character XD)
About the skills this site is very friendly and easy so ull get used to it pretty quickly (i recommend u start with flash draw its easy with basic tools,tho it has ink limit .. java is my favorite which might need a little bit more time to get used to the tools but despite that its the best program for realism, anime and other styles ..tho u might have a difficulty opening java draw cuz it doesnt open with chrome ..better use mozilla firefox... canvas draw is a mix of java and flash ,great for landscapes or abstract etc)
thats what u need to know about the site smile if u need any tips or help dont hesitate to ask big_smile and check out draw chat to meet many artists smile
cant wait to see ur drawings big_smile
