Hello everyone, regretfully (and perhaps not surprisingly) this update is to inform that I'm going to be deactivating my DA account soon. If you'd like to continue to follow future art updates and developments from me, especially regarding my SYNTHESIS comic project (due to launch next year,) then please follow me on other social media platforms:

I may not have been posting often on these other platforms lately due to my continued full time employment, but I do post there more often than I do here, and I have more exciting updates lined up soon as SYNTHESIS' production ramps up. While both Twitter and Tumblr will have a lot of the same updates, I use my Tumblr for more lengthy posts and article-like submissions aside from art and life stuff.

  • I plan on creating an ArtStation or Behance soon to have a more traditional project-based log of my work, and I will post links to those on Twitter/Tumblr when I do. Lastly, don't forget my work will always be at my website, ORIANART, where you'll also find an updated hub of links for social media connections, including my formal contact address which is

It has been years since I've returned to use DeviantART and I think it's time to throw in the towel. DA's cumbersome layout and usability leaves a lot to be desired compared to other more streamlined platforms out there, to the point that this place is unfortunately just an additional chore to upkeep after other places (and I don't like doing chores.) There are other criticisms that keep me using other platforms instead, but I won't go into that here. Instead, for any of you who are still hanging around, let me just say a big

--- THANK YOU ---

to everyone who has followed me and supported me through these earlier years. (DA says I've been a member for almost 15 years but let's be fair I haven't really been around for the last 4.) The support helped me a lot through college and the years after. I promise that I have great things in store if you stick with me beyond DA.

I'll be leaving the account officially at the end of the year.

Edit: CORRECTION, I won't be DELETING the page, I'm going to be renaming my account to something generic and stripping my profile. All of my past work and tutorials and such will still be accessible, but I'm officially moving on from DA and leaving 'fox-orian' behind as a time capsule of sorts.

Please, PLEASE leave your resources that you don't mind keeping free for others to use up after you leave! They are a tremendous help!

Been watching your work since I started dA YEARS ago. Always a great help and inspiration.  Your stuff most closely matches the feeling I want to create in my own work so I'm studying everything you've got! My favorite is Monsoon Season :) Can't wait for Synthesis to come out! Good Luck! :D

your work is inspiring Fox. I know what you mean that you don't have enough time due to your day job. But still you create incredible art! You have my full respect!
