So it's been 8-9 years now that I've been on this website, and it's changed so much that I can barely recognize it anymore. My art style and mediums and brush settings and subjects change so much nowadays that it's really jarring to come to my own DA page sometimes. That is, when I do bother to log in every once in awhile.
I've also changed so much I can barely recognize myself anymore. I started on this site as a naive 13-year-old obsessed with anime with no life outside drawing on my binders during class, dreaming of one day growing up to be a famous artist. Now I'm 22 and getting ready to graduate from college and start my first full-time professional job that has nothing to do with art. I started out seeking an identity in how much people liked the stuff I drew and defining myself as 'alternative artsy weaboo' and now people around me rarely have any idea that I'm even interested in art at all because there is more to know about me than simply how good I am at drawing. How times have moved on.
I guess this is it, then. I will no longer upload art onto DA unless it is a redrawing of a previous work already in this gallery. I will also no longer answer messages unless it is a private note, and even then I can't guarantee a reply within 30 days. I won't be deactivating this account, though.
It's been a good couple of years! If you want to see what I've been up to both art and life-wise, please visit me at my Tumblr page.
