I've been a deviant since September 24th 2006, and in all that time I've HATED my username! When I first signed up here, I had NO clue what to call myself, and it took me hours of headaches and frustrated hairpulling to come up with a name. And what a shitty name... Spyri. Wanna know where it came from? It's the last name of some random author, from some random book I had on my shelve at the time. I never even read the book! But I couldn't very well make a profile without a username. I really thought it would grow on me as time passed. I hoped I would grow to like it at some point. Well I didn't! It's almost 8 years later and I still hate it with all my body. So I changed my name. I finally came up with something I can stand to look at, and something that isn't some random throat-gagging-sound.
And this time my name has some significance to me. It's a name I came up with for my Steam account (feel free to add me if you are a Steam-user). It's somewhat inspired by my love for pirates - who doesn't love pirates? (not those crazy Somalia-pirates! Old school pirates!). I was thinking about pirates and flintlock pistols, and this little 'scene' appeared in my mind. It's awkward to explain, but imagine a pirate, with his gun, trying to explain to a tribe of cannibals what a gun is: it's a BOOMSTICK of course!
This is so DA-cliché. New name. New beginning. Bla bla.
I went through my gallery which has really suffered from my lack of attention, and put like 15+ of my deviations in my scrapbook. It's a common ailment here on DA to suffer from art block, and I am no exception. Mine has lasted for years, but I never understood why. I just lost my joy of drawing, and it has been horrible - as I'm sure everyone who has had an art block knows. Luckily for me (though I'm not sure that's the best term) I have found out what's be bothering me. Recently I have been to a psychiatrist and I am getting diagnosed with some mental disorders like bipolar disorder, anxiety and some other stuff.
I would like to deeply apologize to
I owe you an art trade and I feel so deeply ashamed about it. I was the one who proposed it, and I feel so ashamed that I could crawl into a hole in the ground and die, for not living up to my part of the trade. Please forgive me for my tardiness...
In other news, the weather is pretty great
