I decided to dust off this account mostly because in this time of five million social media accounts, a lot of people seem to flock back to DeviantArt as a means to get back to a space that's only for art, and I suppose I'll join in the capacity that I'll at least keep things fairly current. It was a little tough, though, because I have a history on this site that spans nearly 20 years and obviously I've changed a lot. When I joined in 2003, I was in 5th grade (too young to actually join DeviantArt), was neck deep in my new passion for drawing animated characters. Now it's 2022, I'm in my thirties, and I do this stuff for a living. While I appreciate my growth as a person reflected on the site, I did purge the account of most things I did before college. Obviously since I'm a working professional now, I don't want things I've made so many years ago in the past to represent what I'm doing in the present, which I hope you all can understand. Fanart, for example, is something I don't

i.also.here because of.Guru.larry video

Came here due to you being mentioned on Guru Larry's video.


HELLO YOU!

Heh, you got sort of name dropped in today's episode of Guru Larry

12:00 or so in this episode for the start of the Sonic thing from a few years back, I think.


Anyway, good art, lovely proportions, and some excellent shading on your pieces. Nice use of 'Twilight' times to create a stunning bit of imagery.
