I've held this account :icondark-spectrumds: for almost exactly nine years today. I've technically been on deviantART for about 11 years with my first account being this old thing: :icondark-spectrum:.

I don't feel too different though. I actually miss the days back in 2011-2013 when it was more lively (and I felt that I meant something to the community). Nowadays, it's way different especially with inactive accounts and people moving away as a whole (at least people I know).

I wasn't going to have any time to draw anything commemorating this (not like it's necessary) because I have to work the rest of the day away (not art-related). But I appreciate anyone who's bothered to stay here while I was on this account for so long. Thank you for any and all support. :)

If you don't mind my multiple accounts though, here's where you can find me:
  • Reading: My typed text
  • Playing: Dragon Quest VIII (3DS)
  • Drinking: Water
Hello. I apologize for the inconvenience. I realized that I wasn't being fair so I'll just post the links to my new accounts here if interested. Thanks!:)

Instagram1
Instagram2 (professional?)
Tumblr
Twitter
(Patreon is under construction)
(Maybe another dA account later? DA kinda makes me mad tho.)

I will probably be moving to these new accounts on their respective services, mainly because I don't feel as comfortable uploading there on my old accounts (and sometimes a fresh start is the best option). Also, if I follow you with one of these accounts, it's me especially if we're on good terms/mutual then it's cool if you decide to follow back.;0

I don't mean to make everyone chase after me like this but I have to do what I have to do if moving on makes me happy.^^

It's high time for me to get serious and for me to be taken seriously!:eager:

Hello again. I apologize once more for my inactivity. I have been away getting things set up with new social media accounts for a more "professional" setup. I will use these accounts to post works I feel I did the best I could do on almost like a portfolio. I also decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to have a fresh start to give art another chance after my chaotic adolescent years.

You see, only a few people I know actually know I have these accounts so it's not popularity I'm seeking (though it would be nice). Also no need to worry about art theft unless it looks really suspicious. I seek a newfound trust. I'd like to have people to follow and to follow me who respect who I am as an artist currently and for the future, not anyone who's held hard feelings from the past as I've greatly moved on from that. Not everyone knows what happened and that's fine (I still don't because my mind wasn't right). I still don't have the help I need if you will and my family issues are worsening, but I'm getting there with my new understanding of things. I apologize if I was ever out of place taking out my stress on you guys. I always appreciate your patience and support.:thanks:

======
Okay so first thing's first, I will be slow with updating for now. I have to get back into the swing of things and focus on practice and creating artwork I like.
I have created new Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and Patreon accounts. I also have a Twitch for streaming when I can. Everything is still under construction however. I plan to make most of my accounts SFW and since it's already been marked, I'll leave the Tumblr for NSFW as well as SFW.

I will also apologize for reuploads. I need placeholders until I create new work. However, even creating new work will be difficult because I decided to spend time redesigning characters.^^; Oh, but I have been developing my characters' stories as well!

If you are interested in following my new accounts, please don't hesitate to send me a message/note so I can give you the link(s)!


Thanks again. :)

can you tell me the criteria of being a badass artist? and why someone would fall painfully short of being one if they don't lack in technical skill?
i just would like to know so that i can become one. not because i still want to join your group. i DEFINITELY dont want to be judged by you people again, i would never do that
but since i'm so terribly uncool i figured i should ask why
