My nine years on dA - thoughts and conclusionsHello little ones.
If you still remember who I am, you probably noticed that my activity in recent years has dramatically decreased. Although being 'quite' alive on Tumblr and sometimes Facebook, I gradually withdrew (is that the right word?) myself from online communities due to lack of submissions and stuff to update in general. Real life struggles and tremendous amount of work took away both my time and will to sit focused during free evenings and create for myself. Doing freelance for living is satisfying, but in the long term becomes a killer for creativity, energy and social life. Especially when you're assigned to three big projects at the same time and suddenly you have no idea where the last five months have gone. O_O (happening to me atm)
But enough of that. Today I realised it'll soon be NINE years since I joined dA. Not only do I feel old (), but somehow... proud? Well,

Reason of my absence~~Hey guys You probably noticed that I've been very quiet for a while... a few months even. That's surely some time, so I better give you some explanation.
I didn't stop drawing or painting, so no worries. That's my everyday's job, but I don't feel like showing everything and can't show many things yet either. I just... stopped doing art for myself. Not permanently, of course, but I really needed to fill my free time with something different than my job .-. So I'm reading more books, playing more games and... I came back to my old hobby which is writing. I'm creating a fantasy love story for teenagers and it already has gained a lot of readers, but for now I'm doing this anonymously, so don't ask me for link. (and it's in Polish anyway) But I'll surely make a picture or two and then obviously show it to you.
However, I don't have much time for that either, due to maaaany personal events going on around me. I'll just say th
OMG WHATEdit: Thankyou thankyou thankyou I was totally stunned this morning but now I'm extremely flattered by all the kind words, favs and watches I get! thank you guys, that's so amazing!

I mean.... what, whyyyy xD
Thank you oh my. That's the second time I get DD for a tutorial, lol

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
