:star: Juxta-Switching: An action or process in which two different characters either swap outfits, weaponry or abilities, or anything that allow them to be out-of-character or cosplay as each other, or perhaps both depending on the context. This mostly happens when a fanartist had completely lost his/her mind, or attempted to settle his/her ongoing curiosity.

:bulletblack: NOTE me the two characters you wanted see "juxta-switched" along with other important details I would need to know (epseically for the OCs and other characters I may be not familiar of. Remember, Knowledge is POWER).

Amanda Hampe
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States

I'm an artist with talent and skill inside of her.
I love to draw anytime; rain or shine or in the clouds of boredness.
I'm a kind of girl who loves to do mixed media attempts, espeically with eye shadow make-up.
I have a crazy imaginative mind that leads me to more stories and random ideas.
I keep an open mind at times and trying things that are new to me, like painting and digital art.
I am always known with my saying, "I may be strange to you, but that's the way I am."
I leave you now with my final greeting, "Keep on drawing!" :D

Man, it's been six years since I first started on deviantART, so where do I even begin?

I guess I should start off by informing the readers how I got on this site in the first place. It started about six years ago. My cousin, who is known as Parchife formally TopHatHedgie, introduced me to deviantART and since then I got hooked. I was formally Latias413 because during that time I was in great interest of Pokémon fandom and works, and Latias was one of my favorite legendary Pokémon in the third generation. Throughout the years I produced original works and fanarts to share with the community. I was very new to deviantART in the early years, so I didn't knew what to expect, like receiving llama badges, watch notications, joining clubs and participate in contests, etc. Mostly I get excited from anyone who likes and appreciated the work I did, and having fans alone had helped me to maintain and improve my work, and I persisted ever since.

Looking back from my old works and juxtapose them with my recent new ones, the improvement and the creatively and perhaps something else I cannot think of right now are distinguishable. In other words, they are easily noticed. I have better use of color and attention to details. I slightly but definitely improved on proportion and human anatomy. More practice is always needed, but I always get a great headstart. I also showed my other fandom interests, like Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, Kid Icarus, Super Smash Bros, etc. I had come up with crazy ideas like the Juxtaposition Theory and the concept of "Juxta-Switching". I should note that the word is my obsession and the main source of my works, and thus was the reason I changed my deviantART persona to LadyJuxtaposition. I made a lot of original characters to the point that I will never be alone in my imaginary world, and that itself made me happy.

So, this brings to the question which is the journal prompt: "How has deviantART helped you grow as an individual and/or as an artist?" The answer couldn't have been more obvious than it has. DeviantART, along with Facebook and Tumblr, had helped me share my artworks around the world from the comfort of my home, and with feedback and support from my watchers and fans inspired me to try something new and just surprise them over the innovations. They liked and appreciated my works and I always get immediate comments, even if they were small ones. Those were always appreciated. DeviantART had also helped me to explore different kinds of work, to see who are the artists, writers, animators, cosplayers, and craftspeople and their works, and for me personally, to become my one-stop store for image shopping when searching for references and inspiration. Most importantly, this site made me realized my talents and skills that motivated me to produce more works with improvements and innovations. As long I got fans who bestowed me their support with their comments, faves, and mentions, I continue forth expressing myself as an individual artist/fanartist until  the end of time.

As I leave you readers my self-art feature, Happy 14th Birthday deviantART. Thank you for the best six years and the many years more in the future. Always keep on Drawing and never stop! :D 

Works from 2008-2010

These are the works from my humble beginnings. It's the start of my artistic journey to self discovery and expression, along with fandoms. I tried numerous mediums and styles to explore my artistic voice, discover my options and determine my goals to achieve. In all frankness, they are not better than the works after them, basically because of the personal experience I had gained. But since I now looked back at them, it is amazing for me to see how much I improved in the past six years and how far I came from.

Works from 2011-2012

In a two-year timeframe, most of my works were fandoms of the Final Fantasy series, specifically Final Fantasy VII and Dissidia. Those games had generated rough drafting of the Juxtaposition Theory and the creation of numerous original characters, like the creative explorer Kirby Ribbon and the One-Winged-Demon Mephistopheles. In addition to the fanarts, I also tried photography and painting with a hint of mixed media. I took art classes in community college to maintain my drawing skills as much as I can. I was still in the stage of exploring and discovering my artistic potential, but it was at this point that I had an idea of what I want to do.

Works from 2013

A year ago, I decided I want to pursue a career as an illustrator and character creator. I have so much different characters and environments in mind, and I just put them on paper. Whether it's a rough sketch or a full colored drawing, my ideas were expressed effectively in a visual manner. I continue to practice drawing, coloring, and expressing my current fandom in fanarts, now from different Final Fantasy games. I partake in art trades and requests to persist my interests, and the people who requested me or do art trades with me were never disappointed. I got involved in art contests and enjoyed every one I entered. Those works here were much improved than my older works, obviously because of the practice and experience. With new watchers and supporters I obtained, I continue drawing like there is no tomorrow.

Works from 2014

And now, here I am, six years later. I had come from a long way and learned more of my potential artistic abilities, and I am not stopping there and never planned to. As long the motivated inspiration is in tact, I shall continue contributing my artworks to the art community and spreading the creativity to everyone.  The works below are fanarts in association of the Final Fantasy series and Nintendo games, like Super Smash Bros and Kid Icarus Uprising. I also put my "Juxta-Switching" concept to the test through cosplay and switching personas. I would predict that more works of this concept will come soon for I have numerous people in mind.

Hello again - I am here to let you know what happened. "Zero Suit Link" picture is currently temporarily closed due to some stupid user, who think I am a picture-theft. For more detail, please read the journal in my profile.

I only managed to get 2 out of 3 (Zero Suit Link is the one that still not returning) back in due to the permission. Zero Suit Link was also approved with permission, via the original owner through the Note. And it's just making it more harder to deal with... "Zero Suit Link" picture was already erased from the original owner's profile years ago... And I have yet to hear anything from the owner...

Heya, sorry for the delay. My family keeps hogging the one halfway-decent computer in the house... My laptop is being stupid, too, so it might take a bit longer for SoDaL part II. :(
