Because this stuff is really important for posterity.

I started out on deviantArt because... hm... I think it was because my best friend IRL had an account and told me about it, so I started an account.  That would be TrustInDoubt, March of 2009.  At first it was really crappy emo poetry because I had just moved after my parents' divorce and I was a miserable little dork at the time.  Quickly shifted over into photography.  Self-taught amateur with a point-and-shoot thing but there were some pretty photos IMO here and there.  A few of my favs-

There were also a few crummy drawings of my equine RP characters, and uhh, yeah not a whole lot else.  It's mostly a dead account at this point, never liked the username and it's just clogged with junk.  But I was browsing howrse one day, saw a digital drawing being used as a stable banner, and it had a curious little watermark in the corner, Misty Meadow Stables.  So I googled, came across Kalesta and recognized the drawing as hers, sent her a note about the theft, and then ended up watching her because HORSIES.  After a few months I became brave enough to dip my toe into the strange new world she had introduced to me, namely HARPG.  Funny really, if art theft didn't exist then I might never have joined this community and my life would be quite different indeed...

For funsies, here's the piece that had been ripped from kalesta that lead me to her-

Sun Dance by Kalesta

That was in April 2011.  August 7th 2011 I created this account, Helsinge, and I felt like I finally found my niche in the art community.  My first character was Solly, and my art was... not beautiful at that point.  Most of my drawings had just been linearts, I rarely ever colored and certainly never shaded or drew backgrounds.

Since then, my art has improved so much.  Constant drawing and yearning for improvement has developed my anatomy, shading, backgrounds, and general artiness so much.  I even ventured into digital art, something I'd have never dreamed of otherwise.  I've also developed a deep love and attachment for my HARPG characters- in the past I had make-believe horses that my friend and I "rode" through the woods when I was a kid, and in more recent years I've become strongly attached to many of my RP characters.  But seeing my characters come to life on the screen and on paper....

...and seeing them loved and appreciated by others, is a joy that I cannot describe.

Sometimes I get frustrated with my art, or get a bit burned out on community nonsense.  But my love for my characters, and all the fantastic friends I've made here, keep me glued to deviantArt.  I love you guys.  I seriously do.  You have no idea how much joy you've brought me over the years.  Here's to many more years with you all :heart:

Art posted here is geared towards HARPG.

There is no need to thank me for favs/watches, I give them because I like your work and want to see more of it, not because I'm trying to be nice, so seeing your art is thanks enough :D

Please do not use my page to advertise your art/contests/whatever, beg for watches or favs, or spread chainletters. Such comments will be hidden.

I don't mind invites to competitions or groups that you think are relevant to me and/or my characters, however please don't send me invitations about new breeds or things like that.

I was perusing Google for refs for a super secret project (which won't be as secret as soon as I stop being lazy and note you about it) and I found this, and I thought you might like it: linky You've probably seen it already, but there's no such thing as too much cute, is there? :D
Helsinge Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist :giggle:   It is so funny to me that when people see a cute shetland pony, they think "Oh, helsinge would like that!"  On streams, on my profile, on skype... I get shown so many pony pictures and it's so awesome :squee:

(And super secret project, you say?  Now you have me curious!)
NightingaleStables Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
!!! You lucky thing, you can look at them whenever you want! :D (And you collect postcards, eh?... :plotting:) And it's probably because you have so many ponies, people already associate you with them. :D Helsinge the pony queen!

Hopefully I will be sending out notes when my classes end. ;)

Hihi yes, I have quite a pile of random postcards in a box under my bed :giggle: 

I will absolutely take the title of pony queen :evillaugh:

Hey love I have a question for ya. 

Besides Indi, what ponies do you have?
Helsinge Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
*sits down to count on fingers*

Adult shetlands I have are Squeak, Batman, Lovikka, and Wilhelmina (only the first has an official ref though, need to get cracking on that...)

Adult welshes are Solly, Alastair, and Leonora.

Two gotland ponies, Sotar'n and Fiera.

Ocha pony (made-up breed) Afazhi.

Baby shetlands would be Pippin, Kitt, Stormy, and Flameo, and baby welshie Aslan (again, no refs on those <.<)

I have a couple others as well but they haven't been introduced yet so they can stay in my brain for now.

Can you link me to the shetties that have refs?
Helsinge Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I can later tonight when I'm at the computer,  otherwise you can just search Squeak and Jones in my gallery since they're the only two with refs. May I ask what brought on the inquiry?
