I've been bullied into told encouraged to get my act together and stop hanging around in the shadows... Figured I should post in here to say hi.

 

Hi! I'm Deni, a 19 year old, sometimes actress/ occasional drama teacher/ mostly bartender and cat fanatic from Scotland. I know some of you already from HPFT where I'm under the username Sleepingbagonthesofa (you lot are to blame for me being here) but if I don't then it's lovely to meet you!

 

I love Harry Potter and am undeniably a Gryffindor - with the lion tattoo to prove it. I started posting my writing and getting into the online ff community about six months ago and since then I can't imagine writing without it. Now it's my turn to throw myself into the world of TDA. 

 

I'm pretty new to making graphics but I've been learning quickly over the past few weeks. I can't wait to start building a gallery up and fixing the iffy attempts I've been making so far, being on here will only speed that up, right?

 

I can't wait to get to know you all better. 

All my love

 

~ Deni

Hi Zoe! I've been wanting to properly join for ages because I've heard from SO many people that their graphics got better when they joined, so here's hoping!

hi Deni! i'm Alison. welcome to tda! :hiwave: 

 

i'm a moderator for the Dueling Arena so i'm here to help if you have any questions or concerns on that front! I've also been around for a bit so in general I like to think myself helpful? x) so if you have questions at all or just wanna chat feel free to shoot me a pm :) i'm a little slow atm but I promise i'm here haha.

 

i'm so glad you decided to join! check out the Tutorial Center for some ideas on how to get started in making graphics and the Resource Arena is great for resources (duh) to also help with getting started - great texture and image packs, etc.

 

anyway after that speech welcome and I can't wait to see your graphics! <3 <3 <3

Hello friend! 

Welcome to TDA! I just got into graphic making like...six months ago? Seven? Somewhere in there, so I'm still relatively new. I definitely recommend the critique section and/or I like to stare at what other people have made to kind of see things that I can improve in my own stuff!! 

Regardless, I'm typically around so if you need help with something, feedback, or just want to scream at someone about literally anything, I'm your girl! 

Another thing to kind of help improve and get you in the groove of things is checking out the challenges for sure--it at least gives me an idea of what to make!

Lovely to meet you both!! I'll keep the PMing and screaming in mind, I will 100% have to do that at some point!

 

I need to check those out, I desperately need stock and image packs right now haha!

 

Thanks for the welcomes x

Hi Deni! :) Welcome to TDA. I can vouch that everything I know about graphic making I've learned from TDA and our wonderful community. I'm Taylor, one of the critique corner mods. I look forward to seeing you around and seeing your graphics when you post them. I'm always available if you want to reach out for a quick critique or advice or anything really.
