Update (4/12/15): Added another awesome person to the roster that wished me a happy birthday~! :aww:

Note: At first I thought I lost my entire information when writing this, so I decided to OTL for the rest of the day yesterday. Then I remembered that auto-saves everything...!

Vahn Satoh
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I'm a Multimedia artist that found his love for drawing on August 29, 2005 who has never found interest before then. I hated drawing before because it was tedious.

Throughout my experience, I've had my ups and downs. I've received many discouragements from pursuing this path (and especially from my high school teacher) exclaiming that this is not a field for my future, only because I wasn't great at drawing.

Despite these harsh remarks, I pressed on.

However, because of my stubbornness and optimism to continue striving, I'm happily rewarded with people who continue to look forward to my work, as well as blessed with a wonderful person, :iconhungrysohma16:, who to this day continues to be my inspiration as to why I should keep on going both as an artist partner and as a fiancee.

And for all my hard work, I have officially graduated with a BA degree for Multimedia on December 2014.

Despite my improvements over the course of time, I still see myself as someone who's still new and fresh; always seeking guidance to others regardless of experience, whether it be on Deviantart, the internet itself, or in real life. As such, I always look to everyone to continue improving.

And that's who I wish to become in life: an inspiration to all hardworking artists out there; to show those fresh on the field that you don't have to be a genius or one has to have started drawing young.

To those who do wish to improve as an artist, here's my advice to you:

As long as you stay honest, patient and optimistic...anything is possible.

Be proud of who you are, and what you do; keep your head up, and strive forward.

And to always remember, that there is no such thing as perfection in the world...only experience.
