So hello, and welcome to my dA page. I'm just a little pony that studies inapplicable math, befit only for an infirm ivory tower dweller. I'm also interested in anatomy, biology and death. Expect to find a lot of depressing stuffs in my gallery. My ponysona is Cosmia Nebula, and she is a freelancing astronomer and mathematician living somewhere near Ponyville Library.
Pinkamena is my favorite pony.

I joined dA on 2011-02-25, and I don't quite remember why I did that... *look into my favorite folder* oh, I guess I created the account to collect lion king art... My first fav was this:
Let's retrace back to prehistory.
When I was 13, I rediscovered an old cassette of The Lion King OST during one archeological hunt in my home, and got infatuated with TLK. I watched it again and again, and sang the songs, and tried my paws on fanfic, poetry and philosophical analysis on TLK. In summer of 2009, I found this beautiful place called The Lion King Fan Art Archive (TLKFAA), and the site consumed all my online life for the subsequent 2 years. Viewing all the art rekindled my long-lost desire to draw well. I also became obsessed with Kopa and Vitani (a common shipping in TLK fandom), an obsession that gave me my username "KopaLeo". I was led to dA through some links to dA on TLKFAA. Sometime in 2010, I got a dA account to collect dA art, but didn't use it much.
Then in 2011 summer, I noticed a certain blue rainbow pegasus everywhere in the MyLionKing Forum that I liked to visit, so after many encounters, I thought, "might as well check what the fuss is about" and watched this video on 2011-09-11 (I recorded this event in my diary)
I was intrigued, and watched the first episode on 2011-09-12, and soon finished all of season 1. I felt profound happiness, and grew a deep desire for a life as a pony in Equestria, more than my previous wish to be a lion in Pride Lands.
After some more time, I gave up TLK and fully devoted myself to MLP. There was no "MLPFAA", so I got a dA account, but I was busy with studies, so I didn't use it much.
Then after some watershed event, I suddenly had lots of free time and a very darkened psychology, and I started hoarding sad MLP art in my favorite folder. I became a contributor to in 2012 December, and has been there ever since, solemnly collecting every drop of pony sadness. Then I had even more free time, and started creating art myself. I was prompted to make my first submission, some kind of free verse in computerspeak. kopaleo.deviantart.com/art/Byt…
Then I made a few vector art with mouse. I was moderately satisfied with them, and they gave me the confidence that I could make something artistic. (curiously, the last one is my most fav'd piece so far, with 60 fav's)
Then I bought a tablet! Yes, I jumped directly into digital world, because I didn't have time to learn traditional art. I created this on the night of 2013-04-04, in a rush. And this is the first "polished" art I created, on 2013-04-11
And then I created my ponysona, Cosmia Nebula! But being the scientist I am, I carefully studied color theory, and conducted some research on the proper color scheme of ponies before creating my OC. It paid off. I never regretted my choice of colors (by a accident, Cosmia look like Maud, which is really felicitous, because Cosmia really loves Pinkamena).
I kind of stopped being artistically productive after 2013 September due to schoolwork, but I'll try to be more productive again, like how I used to be: in 2013 May, I made 11 pieces of art.
OK, time for some lists:
...comic: (took 3 days of nonstop work, my perfectionism drove me crazy, but also made this piece outstanding among my work)
...picture staring Twilight Sparkle: (drawn in an anxious period)
...picture staring me: (drawn while listen to Evanescence songs)
...picture overall: (Pinkamena... )
