New year, new beginnings. Hello everyone!
I am very
excited to start being active here again after many years of art hiatuses, life occurrences and… online profiles I was… shamelessly leaving empty, just with the words “Coming back soon!”
creating expectations I was not ready to fulfil! Despite its ups and downs, I really
missed this place and I am looking forward to creating new art and new memories paired with it. Life is at a different kind of “difficult”
state right now but, as I want to focus on doing art professionally, I will be trying my best to find a workflow that fits me and start being consistently active in all my art accounts.
What are my feelings towards art now?
At the current moment, I have to admit that I am not feeling as confident about the art I produce as I used to feel once.
Art began to intimidate me more and more as the years went by and I am having a hard time trying new things in order to finally discover what I enjoy creating.
It feels as if the stuff I have in my head does not
match with what I end up making, leaving me frustrated every time I complete a piece. I end up being unmotivated to continue, art block occurs, and the cycle continues. And at the same time, I feel some sort of pressure that I do not want to have, which is mainly coming from me trying to be as professional as I can. I am afraid to try new things
or fully express myself
, I want to be consistent with my art style, something that I wish to escape from as the point of art is not pressuring yourself to replicate the same art format over, and over, and over, and two
, due to previous negative experiences, I have also become prone to avoiding producing things that would come out as “mistakes”
, pieces I will not like in the future. But, style comes naturally, with creating and practising on a constant basis, and if you are not going to experiment in an attempt to “defend”
yourself from mistakes then you will never
improve, never find what makes you feel happy to put down on paper, and that is one of the main, if not the most important,
goal I have with this account.
I want to finally experience making art as something that comes naturally
, create things that make me happy and start freelancing in the process. I want to feel less intimidated as well as making myself
less intimidating, express my creativity fully and slowly start introducing my headcanon story I have been developing for many years (which is the thing I have been most passionate about my whole artistic life). I hope this shows and, with your support, make the upcoming years with this identity my most fun, productive and cultivating artistic years of my life!
Gallery spam incoming!
In order to start building up my gallery and having a base of examples until I create new art, I am going to be uploading specific representative/favourite pieces of mine
from 2015 up until now. With that in mind, there is going to be a (small) spam of deviations
in your inbox and, perhaps, “mentions”
as I will be mentioning the people I originally made the pieces for, so I apologise about that in advance!
I just want to have everything sorted in my gallery, but I am going to make sure to also mention the current owners of any characters I am going to be uploading artwork of, if I managed to find them, so I hope that is a pleasant surprise (to anyone who did not know that art existed, that is). Going to start 2019 with a “blast from the past”
, a couple of recent pieces and a bunch of new art following after that!
In a few words, I am really
looking forward to starting drawing again, leaving my comfort zone, experimenting with new things, and I hope you stick around for that!
If you are coming from my previous account, thank you
for supporting me until this far and I would love to be hearing your feedback about the content I will be uploading.
There are still a couple things to sort out on this account and for now, I will be focusing on my gallery here
instead of other social media, but I am going to be informing everyone on where to find me elsewhere too as soon as I have everything ready in other places
. And, speaking of account preparations and other sites, deviantART is changing
with the Eclipse update coming closer and closer so
all my effort in summer to set this account’s layout up will be lost
I will have to start working on transferring/rebuilding my profile according to the new layout and customization options that will be available to us, as soon as the update is coming for everyone, together with informing the people that will be leaving the site about where else I will be posting my content. I hope Eclipse is not the death
but rather the resurrection
of this site because I would hate this place to go and I want to support it for as long as possible.
And that is all for now. Now, on to uploading all my art!
(Thank you for taking the time to read this. Wishing you a great day!)
