I'd like to introduce myself,  My name is Reesa, I'm 29, and I'm from Redding California.  10 years ago I was in a car accident caused by a drunk driver.  I was completely paralyzed from the neck down.  Before the accident, I was 18 and just starting college to eventually become a paramedic.  As a child, I always had a creative side to me and I did alot of sketching.  I put off the creative side of me to persue other things, but now creating has become a big part of my life again.  I know there are quadraplegics that sketch with their mouths, but I just did NOT have the patience to go from stick figures to beautiful creations again, hehehe.  I do create art with my mouth, I just can't draw.  I really miss my hands.  I have been creating digital art for about 6 years now, a big portion of that time with paint shop pro.  I had been spending much of that time manipulating surfed art and making little siggies purely for my own amusement.  I started feeling like PSP just wasn't that much of a challenge for me, so I decided to try photoshop.  I can't describe how intimidating it was.  I have been working with photoshop for about a year and a half now.   I had also begun to visit Deviant Art and saw so much raw talent out there, and I wished so bad that my art could be worthy enough, that I could be courageous enough to fit in among the finest.  After some suggestion to try it, I decided to take the plunge and get myself an account.  Please bear with me, any mistakes I make are purely accidental.  There are many things I still need to learn how to do.  I'm happy to be here and make good friends.

I don’t know how your finances are but I’ d be honored to get you a 3 month subscription if you would like to try it out. You have a lovely gallery :love: even more impressive in that you only use brushes.

Also technically you don’t have to pay to add icons of your friend to your journals just follow the instructions in the FAQ #81: How can I make links to other deviants, deviations, or websites? under Avatar linking. It’s a bit of a pain and doing with a subscription is easier but it can still be done without one :D

You're welcome :) The search goes down from time to time on DA (as does the whole site). I understand from talking to an admin that they are undergoing some upgrading to the search feature.
