My DeviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 6:41 AM

Hello guys, It's deviantART's 14th birthday, and I decided to write my deviant art story for you.


Back in 2007, I discovered DeviantART through a friend of mine, we used to be so into the metal band "Nightwish" and we used to appreciate the emotional photo manipulation artworks in here, especially the ones of MySweetDarkness. I decided to create an account to give feedback for the artworks I liked, I created my first account with a really silly username, I'm not going to share it, though.

So anyway, after a while I realised that my username is really stupid and we didn't have the ability to change usernames back then, so I created a new account on Jun 8th, 2008 and I named it Rudz-is-me (that's not better either).


I started uploading my art to dA and I made some really great friends. Especially darkredbbb who is my best friend now.

Here are two artworks that I uploaded around that time:

Adam And Eve by SRudy  Mary had a lamb by SRudy


in 2009, my artistic abilities have gotten more mature, and I found myself extremely interested in Greek Mythology. It was the same time I joined art school, and I started to discover art on deviantART more, and this helped me a lot in my studies.

In 2009 I received my first DD, on my "Greek Vase" from Kitten-of-Woe

Here are a few artworks from 2009:

Pan by SRudy  Ares by SRudy  Persephone by SRudy


In 2010, I met my best friend Rosane-Chawi, and many other amazing people, this year I also received my second DD, "Raven of Dispersion" from SRaffa.

Winds of New Beginnings by SRudy   Saint thor by SRudy


During this year, I started making even more friends on dA, I started writing loads of art features and art history articles, I got even more interested in the community as a whole. I even applied for CVing for the Traditional Art gallery. That year I also received my third DD, "I am the Cosmos", which is probably the most popular artwork in my gallery. Received from deshrubber 

I Am the Cosmos by SRudy

Whales Tails by SRudy   Dreams Made Flesh - mosaic by SRudy


In 2012 I was contacted by Wonder Woman concerning volunteering for deviantART, and I was very happy about it. I took care of the Traditional art gallery along with  her highness, STelariSRaffa, deshrubber and Astralseed.

I changed my username from Rudz-is-me to Salvador-Rudy

I became friends with a lot of amazing people from the team, people from all around the glob, we had so much fun planning dA events and writing stuff. It was a great experience to work with you guys.

I also started working on my project "DeviantAPP" Deviantart's iPhone app, it was later put under development with my friend Eli.

And yes, you guessed it, I received a 4th DD that year on my artwork "The Horizon Bleeds and Sucks it Thumb" my first painting DD.

The Horizon Bleeds And Sucks Its Thumb by SRudy


My term as a Traditional Art community volunteer ended, sadly, but that didn't stop me from doing my best to write art history journals and featuring great artworks even if only through journal features (Fried Days Features).

DeviantAPP was released on the AppStore.

I changed my username from Salvador-Rudy to SRudy (The shorter the better, that's what she never said).

This year I also got a 5th DD, which is "Ascension" my first ever ink drawing. it was suggested by STelari and featured by Astralseed

Ascension by SRudy

Ruthenium - Self Portrait by SRudy   Witchking of Angmar by SRudy


This year i worked on a new updated version of DeviantAPP, and until tis day it's still in beta development, I received my 6th DD from jane-beata, on my pointillism artwork "Raven"

My deviantART story surely doesn't end here, there's a lot more to come.

And long live deviantART! :heart:
