I missed my dA "birthday" (March 11), so it comes as a bit of a surprise to find out I've been here for 8 years!!

When I first joined dA waaaay back in 2006, it was only so I could set the "mature" filter off to see the artwork some of the posters at the Amaz0ns forum were showing. For a couple of years, I actually avoided being more active because, quite frankly I'm not fond of the "deviant" part of deviantART's name, and didn't want to be too closely associated with a site that I thought at the time was created as a showcase for porn art. (I've since found out how surprisingly prudish dA's standards are concerning erotic art.)

But I did take the plunge, and now, 746 "deviations", over 3,000 watchers and 2,171,000 page views later, I'm glad I did. There are some really cool and great people here, and I thank you all for your watching, your faves, and your comments! (Well, except for that one left by some jerk who as much as said that because women like Tetsuko and Sonya can't exist in real life, I have no business drawing them.)

And now, to quote Peter Sellers from The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu, "on to the next bit."

Perhaps someone like Tet-chan can't exist, but I've seen plenty of women with boobs as big as Sonya's and bigger, and believe it or not, a lot of them were clothed. lol

Wow, crazy. I never thought about the registration date and apparently I am two months ahead of you (January) but 8 years as well. Seems those of us from Amaz0ns probably joined DA around the same time. Well, awesome either way. :)

Did you know this about the site name according to Wikipedia?:

"DeviantArt started as a site connected with people who took computer applications and modified them to their own tastes, or who “deviated” the applications from the original designs."

I also don't like the name, too many negative connotations.

It is a funny old site deviantART, but nice to see you're still around from time to time. Many consider you to be one of the Godfathers of the Female Muscle community, so you would be sorely missed.

Yeah, screw that dude that dissed lovely Tet-chan and Dr. Sonya! I admit my parents had the same thought about the site's name; I've since referred to it as "dA". Overall, congrats on your dA anniversary and give my love to Tetsuko and the other gals.:heart:

Hmmm.  :)  I remember seeing you "go deviant" when you signed up about six months after I'd set up shop here.  Glad you made it, and glad to have known you all that time.

And I'm glad and proud to have you as a fellow compatriot here.

I too find the disconnect between the name and their actions ironic.

And I joined for the same reason. I've really only been "active" for 6 months and I'm having a blast!

Congrats on the anniversary!

And THANK YOU for your amazing art as I've admired it for years.

One of the things I like about delurking is I get a chance to tell artists how much I appreciate their work!

You are right -- lots of great people here. If we could just get them to relax more and be a bit more deviant....

Sword-fighting skeletons can not exist in real life.  Ray Harryhausen had no business animating them.
