I just got onto Deviant Art and I noticed soo many people making journals about their DA stories and I noticed that it's DA's birthday.
Well now...Might as well join the bandwagon.
Lets see........It started right around when I first discovered the television show of pastel colored horses back in August of 2012. After watching about halfway through season 1 of MLP, I looked up stuff about the show and then eventually turned to images on Google. I noticed a ton of OCs everywhere! Like...EVERYWHERE!!! So being the newbie in the fandom, I wanted an OC of my own of course!
So after finding the Pony Maker everyone uses (which I realize now looks god awful!), I made a few OCs and kept a few, but I mainly used the one I use now as myself. But then I had that urge to share it with people but didn't know where I could without anyone I knew in real life would see it. I looked at DA and it sparked making me think that I should join DA and post stuff I make on here.
As where I got the name "Zenkonto"?
Well the thing is not too long before I joined the fandom, I was playing Pokemon Red and I wanted to name my Charmander something (because I usually name my starter Pokemon). I decided to be creative and come up with the most random. but creative sounding name ever. Here's the thing though. I named my Charmander "Zenquento". I thought it sounded really cool at the time (it's soo freaking dumb. ). Now later on, I was making a name for my Playstation 3 account name. I was trying to remember what I named my Charmander on Pokemon Red so I could make that my PS3 account name. I was too lazy to check and I thought it was "Zenkonto". So that became my PS3 account name. I even made that part of my e-mail name.
So when I went to join DA, I needed a name for myself. And BAM!!! Zenkonto became my name!
I look back now and it kind of sounds silly, but it sticks to me now. Like my own code name. Unless I'm on Xbox. Then I'm just some person who made a Saving Pvt Ryan joke for his Gamertag .
I've noticed how I've changed a lot since I've joined the fandom and DA. I look back at some of my stuff I did with art and how I communicated with others and I now realize "Wow...I was stupid." Most of the stuff I made back then were just stuff I either put together and Photoshopped so badly or just saw somewhere and posted it here like Tumblr or something. Oh, and I wrote descriptions like I was popular and always had "lol" or something like that somewhere in it. I also used the "XD" face a lot. (I use Meow emoticons a lot now...and side thoughts in parenthesis...) Lol! XD.........
also I was very shy
Anyways, it's almost been two years being on Deviant Art AND being a Brony! The cool thing is that I can celebrate them at the same time since I officially started both on the same day.
I've seen myself change over the course of almost two years. I'm not much of an artist, but when I feel the need to get creative, I make stuff (whatever it is) and come here.
I've met some awesome people on DA over the years! You guys are awesome to talk to! *Hugs to you all*
