I think I did this last year too, but here it is again:
I had found DA back when I was in middle school, but I never really had an account. I would go to look at all the Naruto fanart (back when I was into that) and find wallpapers for my desktop. I eventually made an account which was something along the lines of NarutoFangirl32 so I could save all the cool art I came across (and I think I posted one thing which was a screenshot of my desktop lol).
And then I didn't come back to DA for quite awhile, until 3 years ago when I wanted to try out for a DTA contest. Now I had never submitted actual art on DA before, especially stuff so crappy. I thought people would hate it be like 'ew that's gross', but I found out that I won the DTA and people really liked my crappy little drawing (taken with a crappy phone too).
So thus became the start of my account today! I started off with crappy cell-phone camera pictures, then to scanning my work, then to digital art where I've gotten better and better with each picture. C:
