Well well well, It's been a very, very, VERY long time since I've come back here.
I first entered deviantArt about ten years ago when I was in high school. As you can see back then I was very much into fractal art, especially when it is used to express music. Since then I spent one truly wonderful year here, discovering great art, meeting fantastic people and talent, and slowly growing my confidence in both my work and my sociability, of which back then and as I do to a lesser extent now suffer from a terrible shyness. But as I left high school and work became an all-consuming part of my life both my creativity and interest in dA had died out.
Back then I felt it would be a special part of me that would break and that the reality of where I was in the real world would compel me to lose myself. The truly sad thing is that that's exactly what happened; as time went on I became less than my creative and colourful self.
However, since last year I've had a reawakening in my creativity and felt that sooner or later I'd return to deviantArt, so here I am, ready to once again take perhaps a new plunge into this great community.
In my previous life here on dA I was mostly a fractal artist and dabbled into other areas like fiction writing and albeit faltering attempts at manga art - one of my key deficiencies IS, I still have this problem, a complete lack of ability to draw a face or indeed a body in any direction apart from forward facing, this is something I MUST be able to fix.
Today it is entirely my intention to shore up my manga artistry as well as produce some of my ideas for fictions in the fantasy and science-fiction genres, and with new music from my favorite musicians I may yet produce more fractal art, even though I have not made any new works so I more or less left dA.
