Well then; hello all. Welcome back to the Devious Diesel Club. It's been some time since I last was active, and I apologize. I was busy the last couple of years just on my account and occasionally approving submissions. Here. When I got too busy to do that those submissions expired. My apologies. Last semester I was very busy with my new job and with passing a most important class: Advanced Graphics. See, outside of DA (or if you've seen my DA page), I'm a semi-amateur graphic designer. I finally found a style that works for me, and I passed with flying colors. Oh, and, for the record, the inactivity in 2015 largely chalks up to depression and rejection; my ex whom I was very attached to abandoned me in favor of Undertale. It's a long story and I won't bother with the finer details, so we'll leave it at that.
You know, I've been doing a lot of thinking. This group has had a lot of ups and downs. Back and forth between people annoying me or me being a dick. Well, no more, I say. I'm done with drama on DA. I want to give this group a fresh slate; which may include hiding of old comments and deletion of old blog posts. I'm a lot more chill now as you can see from the change in my demeanor here. I'm laid back, and more excepting and understanding, and just want peace.
I'm also taking the liberty of loosening up restrictions on my group. You wanna submit a pairing? Go ahead. Just make sure it's not dirty or...-shudder- engines and humans.
I'll also allow humanizations or anthro versions of characters; I don't think I really did before.
Of course all submissions will still undergo approval, and some of the old rules still apply, such as no nonsensical crossovers like Total Drama Island x Thomas or what have you.
Very soon, across the various folders, you'll be seeing some new artwork from an artist I've gotten to know in recent times:
. Electra here is a marvelous and talented artist who loves diesels (esp Warships like Diesel 10) and quite a creative person. I admit, I've not seen anything like the things she's come up with before. The two of us are very different people with different backgrounds and political alignments, but that hasn't stopped us from getting to know and respect each other. In fact, I respect her so much that I've asked her to be a contributing member to the group. So please, welcome her, take a look at her artwork, and be respectful.
Let the new age of the Diesels Group begin!
