DeviantArt provides no way to change your username so I'm going to have to just abandon this account and move to a new one if I don't want to be stuck with this name forever.

To that end, I am moving to the identity ObscureStar on DA.

I think I'm getting a bit lonely.  I spend most of my free time making things, be it art, sewing, or building gizmos and thingymabobs but what I don't really have is a decent social network for doing this kind of stuff so I spend a lot of time working in isolation and I realize that in some ways this reduces my overall creativity because either A)  I get lonely and browse the internet and waste time or B)  I'm not exchanging ideas with other people.  I'm just off in my own little world.

I'd like to grow and share and learn from others but I've never been good at finding people and the bay area is so huge and so impersonal that it's hard to ever really get to know anyone.  The only group I feel like I wouldn't get along well with are religious conservatives.  I actively like Burners, furries, and queers, but what I'd like most is a place to sit and create things with other creative people.  I need to be inspired.

Anyone out there got any ideas?

Not sure anyone reads journals so this is sort of a test.

I've been trying for a while to figure out how and where to put all of my art.  I do a lot of really varied stuff and it doesn't all really seem to belong together, so I tend to put my 'adult' and better rendered pieces here while putting more childish and cartoony stuff on sheezy art and anthro stuff mostly on furaffinity.  However, there's a lot of overlap and I sometimes find I end up posting the same bit of art to a couple different sites.

Also, I hate converting my animation to Flash so that ends up staying on my own site.

Anyone else have similar problems with sorting and if so, how do you solve it?
