Sure, let's do this! (just as a warning, this can take a while because I love rambling about stuff like this ;))

I joined DeviantArt in December 2005. Not with this account though, but as :iconsuzume90:. I was fifteen at the time and some of my friends were also in DA, so I joined to chat with them and share our art to each other. I was never too active, I just posted random drawings there every once in a while. 

My first submission was an otaku girl with a pirate theme, drawn for a small 'event' me and my cousin held together.

Mostly I posted fanart to different anime and manga series, and also gifts to my friends. I was also trying to figure out copic markers at the time, but I later came to the conclusion that they're not for me. I slowly made art less and less, having even a gap of a full year without drawing anything.

In 2008 I got back into Pokemon by playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: The Red Rescue Team. I really wanted to sketch my team in the game (Kitsune the Eevee & Kippy the Mudkip). Suddenly it hit me how much I enjoyed drawing Pokemon and I drew them more and more. I didn't want to flood my old account with Pokemon art only, so I created this acount for Pokemon art only. So it happens that I didn't end up drawing anything else for years, and now my old account is abandoned.

At first I was just drawing simple full body pictures of Pokemon.

However, for a while I was really into creating Pokemon hybrids and fakemon too. I even did some game sprites at one point.

Then, in summer 2011, I found :iconpmd-explorers:. I was following :iconpurplekecleon: and really liked all the material they were producing for their group and I had to check what the group was about. As it was a group with the same consept as PMD games, I knew I had to join. And so Team Rowanberry was born.
Team Rowanberry by Tyltalis
PMD-E made me do things I had never done before: 1) draw fast without spending hours for just the sketch, 2) draw poses and angles that were actually challenging and 3) tell stories. And I loved every second of it. Before this point drawing had been only a fun way to pass time for me, but now it became something more: self-expression. I realised that I really loved telling stories, and I wanted to get better at it. I can't express enough how grateful I am to the group for that.

I also got a lot of friends and fans from PMD-E, which made the whole experience many time more fun. The collaborations, cameos, gifts... I was so happy for all of that!

When the group closed a year ago, it did hit me pretty hard. It was like popping a bubble I had been in and I was left wondering what I had been doing for the last two years of my life. I just had prioritized PMD-E above all else for such a long time that I needed some rearranging. I wasn't going to give up on my team before I was done with them, but university and work had to come first. That sadly has caused me to draw things less often for the last half a year, but I don't mind. I'm going to finish the story slowly but surely.

I also want to mention that besides storytelling, I've become much more ambitious with my art during the last few years. I used to be satisfied with my level of skill when I was just drawing simple pictures for fun. Now I know there's still a lot of things I want to learn about color theory and composition. Drawing plain pictures with simple poses isn't enough to keep me satisfied! In the end, I want to thank DA and PMD-Explorers for relighting my will to improve on art. And a special thanks to all my watchers, inspirations and friends!

(sorry for the super late reply)
Thank you! <3 I'm happy you like them. But I have to admit that I couldn't really make a very good tutorial for that. I just study all kinds of photos and use them as reference for backgrounds. This has also helped me:…
