- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
