obligatory new years journal.... for all you peeps! xD
.....so... how have you all been? i feel like that weird cousin who left the family and just returned after years of not knowing where i went or what I've done with my life....
lets be honest here. i hardly update deviant art. and i feel really bad. this was my home, my first place to update art... and this is where i've gained friends and followers.
i will NEVER abandon deviant art. i hate all the people i've followed and decided to pack up ALL their art and leave... i see my faves and theres empty boxes with x's on them... i don't know what the image was... or who they were from. my favorites were my inspirations and a lot of them have disappeared. i don't ever want to do that to my fans and followers. and i never will.
I've read a lot of journals from people who have abandoned DA, and it's mostly because of art thieves. its true its unfair... DA has kinda gone downhill...but what can you do? watermark, watermark, watermark! most of the stuff being stolen is fan art. and thats something i have never really done until recently because, lets face it, fan art sells better at conventions.
last year i had a 365 day sketch challenge, and although i tripped at the finish line (and failed to draw 1 piece a day) i WAS able to draw 365 pieces of art. however...i only submitted a handful on here.
because i like my best work to be displayed here. but i'm considering updating all the old stuff just for the heck of it so you guys can see it here.
other than that... i have become VERY active on tumblr. my current home. but you know...it takes time to get used to it. i know i HATED it at first, but then i got the hang of it. ^^
ive also been adding stuff to my redbubble account. you can buy stuff!!! wuuuttt?!
anyway.... i'll try to check in on here once a month.
and to reiterate
