Depression Resolved by joeFJ
Depression Resolved
Hi, Im Joe and I used to struggle with depression.

As most of you already know, this is a direct response to an amazing deviation by DestinyBlue called Depression. For me it was almost like providence or something divine to have encountered on my feed the other day.

Not only was Blue's piece so witty in its delivery and able to encapsulate how we who suffer with depression have to cope with people who don't understand what we go through, but her testimony that went with it left me speechless.

This is because much of what she described about the type of depression she suffered, I could relate to.

I feel when Blue shared such a personal story it gave people like myself and others an opportunity to talk to someone about their suffering. We no longer have to suffer alone because when we share art like this it brings awareness to the pain people feel inside and it allows us to know that it is ok for us to let each other know how we feel.

This is why Blue's character on the right is personified as bright and colorful, essentially she is hope. When we know we aren't the only ones going through something and other people are also fighting on to be themselves again, it gives us hope.

I just want you all to feel hope and let this piece brighten your day as Blue's artwork has brightened mine.

So by popular demand, the 10 10 10 chain has returned. JUST KIDDING.

This epic homie :iconmegancoral:MeganCoral was kind enough to tag me (folks must think im a really interesting person or something =D lol)
and heck. I love doing these things and mosst importantly I love you, whoever is reading this. You are loved.

Ok so I guess he didn't add this part which is YOU MUST ADD THE RULES. (Atleast this was the case with the original 10 10 10 chain I received).

Now I would add the rules, but it seems, either someone magically has the power to delete my journals or I got hacked or something. My first response to the 10 10 10 chain has disappeared from my records. =(

So without further ado, let me answer :iconmegancoral:'s wonderful questions for me.

Questions-

1. Why did you chose dA?

Actually it all started in 8th grade. My homeroom teacher saw that I was drawing all over her board and she had a daughter in high school who was amazing at art. So they showed me Deviant Art and soon after that I made my own page in 2012.

2. What do you do in your real life?

I am currently a college freshman, just finished my first year. But I am an aspiring writer, I am currently writing my first book that I intend to publish in the near future. It is called The Legend of He.

3. If you were to do something, what would it be other than this journal?

Being with my friends who are returning from their first year in college who I have not seen in a year =(... and watching The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, which I am about to in a couple of minutes. =D =D =D

4. How long have you been here?

On DA? Since 2012.

5. What was your best memories on dA? (List as many as you see fit)

Uhhh... I have not been super active since 2013 to now but I'd say just making wonderful friends with a couple of awesome guys here. We have a great community and I just simply love you guys on DA. I get to meet people who think just like me and have the same interests as me that I never could meet at school. Literally every kind of person is on DA. So yeah just my general experience off this community has been super positive. I love you guys!

6. What were your worsts? (List as many as you see fit)

To be honest, none. As I said before, positive community, positive people.

7. If you were to go back and change everything about yourself, would you? Answer why and why not.

LOL I ask myself this question all the time and to be honest with you its weird. If you ask me that now, now that I have matured and I am appreciative of my life and the people that make it, I would not change a thing... maybe get a girlfriend or two back when I was in high school but other than that, nada. But if you asked me that when I was in high school I would have probably said something like, "I wish I was never born". I changed A LOT.

8. How do you feel so far with the journal? Great? Then you can skip this one. I just wanted to fill this one

Yep exactly.

9. What are your hobbies on this site?

Meeting people, making art for you guys that makes you happy and encourages you and just having a great time and a positive experience. I love you guys, did I already say that =D?

10. What is great about dA? (List it, long or short.)

Wow man, I think I said it all. Well first of all it is an environment that gives people a financial platform that makes it easy for artist and audience to connect. There was a deviation a couple days ago talking about how the Marvel/DC system is not compatible with our day and age and a community like DA makes it easy for us to know about the artists and for the artist to feel like they are being appreciated.

Another thing I love about DA is the trememdous amount of amazing talent on here. Not just in skillfulness and professionalism of the art quality but the different ways people engage each other on an artistic and social level. Not every big Deviant is a signed artist but there are those who may not draw for a company or something but through their fan fics and unique delivery of art are able to garner the attention of many. I find that awesome.

And lastly I guess DA is just awesome for being there. I can spend the whole day faving people's art non stop and I love it. My fave thing to do here... is to fave your art! So send me your art.... I'll probably fave it. =D

Thank you MeganCoral this was fun!!!

The Hero of Justice is here!!! by joeFJ
The Hero of Justice is here!!!
Paint tool SAI+ Photoshop CS5 (7 hours)

Another fanart of one of my favorite anime characters as a kid. None other than the mischievous Gotenks in my favorite super saiyan form.

Supergirl by joeFJ
Supergirl
Paint Tool SAI (2 hours) + Photoshop CS5 (2 hour)

I'm not too fond of the modern portrayals of Supergirl but I always enjoyed her from Justice League and the Superman Animated Series from back in the day. Hope you guys like it too.

By any chance you think she and Gwen Stacy are related? =D =D =D

i heart Spider Gwen by joeFJ
i heart Spider Gwen
Paint Tool SAI (45 minutes) Photshop CS5 (5 hours).

YASSSSSS..... Finally done with concept art. Woo! Yes so for the time being I will be busy doing stuff like this... fanart. The first batch will be of my favorite female characters, like this one.

This was a load of fun to draw and much much easier than the concepts. Concepts literally take forever since I am literally creating a new character's design from scratch. Yeah... but fanarts well... the characters already exist so its just a matter of choosing what I want them to do =D.

Hope you guys like it.


Credit goes to Marvel and all the owners of Spider Gwen.

I'm from the Gambia and I enjoy drawing ALOT. If it was up to me it would be all I ever did (apart from certain other essentials). So stay tuned and you might just like what you see.

Wow so I've been gone for a minute (a year or 2 to be exact). For those of you bothered to know what I am currently doing with my life:

No I did not die somewhere =D I went to college (YAAAaaaayyy.... yeah, its a lot of work, takes a lot of time and costs a lot of money)





Y-yeah... Essentially I'm doing all that at college in the hopes of deciding what I want to do with my life....for the rest of my life.... if that makes any sense.... even remotely.





Anyway.

I know I'm terrible, I haven't posted nada for 3 years. I lost my digital tools but once I get my mojo back, I'll try to step up my game. So in the meantime,

Interests
