TLDR; if you have any memories or saved artworks of his, please tell me, I need reassurance right now over this. I feel like my fucking art Dad died. Comment calling me a nostalgic asshole if you want just to show you even clicked on this, just say SOMETHING.
I just fucking can't believe
this is a thing and NObody is talking about, not even him, and NObody but me so far even made the tiniest effort to stop him (perhaps that's WHY, as if he feels no one cares), maybe because he's still using another account, but FFS, he is throwing FIVE ENTIRE FUCKING YEARS and hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds, maybe even thousands of amazing artworks in the paper shredder, with nary the tiniest notice (unless they're still up on pixiv/tumblr maybe). I mean, when he finishes Wicked Pump you better hold onto THAT because lord knows that's going to be buried alive under a thousand more artworks, mysteriously vanish when you look for it two years later before he just buries that account too. POSTERITY. MATTERS. Can you imagine if Da vinci, Picasso or John Signer sergeant did something like this and just obliterated every trace of work they did in their lives? Da Vinci died thinking HE was a failure! A man so brilliant people question if he was from this EARTH.
<This guy has been dead for 3 years, he made one artwork and never did anything ever again (or at least since), but you know what? people STILL fave it, people STILL went back to it, people STILL are watching him and Max himself actually went back and redrew his one hit wonder. Now people will never be able to do the same with his old account! people FIVE HUNDRED years from now could have seen it (assuming the site last that long), but now people who join next month won't.
Again, it is ironic of me to say this when me gallery is empty RN (because I STORED IT, not deleted it, just to keep it from distracting me from school) but please, ANY artists reading this,
I plead with you to NEVER do this to your fans, NEVER deactivate your account,
because once it's gone you can NEVER bring it back. Storing deviations has the exact fucking same effect of wiping the slate clean, but at ANY moment you can change your mind.
My art teachers have always pleaded with me left and right to preserve work, and when I was a depressed little Freshman/Sophomore, with fucking zero self esteem, I thought they were fucking crazy, and by all means I don't advocate saving EVERY last artwork, but my god, what he's doing is like if I just threw EVERY painting, every little drawing I ever made in art school, from astounding success to woeful failure, in a furnace, without telling a single person. Just what the heck, he doesn't even USE that account anymore, he has a new one, like just WHY??
