Heads up! I'm going to be shutting down my two DeviantArt accounts tomorrow :iconimagni: :iconastrima:, so if you need to save any of my old old fanart for personal use then you have until 9am tomorrow (GMT). My Astrima account shut down years ago but i left my art archived there. I'm not really comfy with having my super old art on this type of open website anymore, i'd rather move it all to my website as an archive. So after 13 years of good and bad memories I'll be removing my art from there entirely. I wont *close* my account names but I'll leave a list of links that my art can be found at instead. Because there is NOTHING worse than trying to find an old artist online and they don't leave links or change their name 80000 times. So yeah. Got tired of uploading here and watching the site go down the pan over time. It was fantastic while it lasted but it just feels a tad Myspacey now and any sort of meaningful 'I'm leaving!' journal would be read by about 3 active people *lol*. Most of you follow me on other sites anyway, so i'm just giving myself one less place to upload to XD And don't worry, I wont be returning 3 weeks later, that's not my style, I'm too lazy :p
In 13 years I've only closed my account once, and that was to open a new one for Engelbaum. I've also never changed my name :D So i'd like to think that's some kind of record around here *lol*
Also note that the links I leave behind on the closing journal will be the only OFFICIAL places to find my work. Anywhere else is just a fake account pretending to be me or using my stuff without permission. So just pay attention to my links for proper content :)
Save your old favs now or forever wait a decade until I get around to reuploading them to my actual website (which will eventually happen, just not priority right now).
Thank you to everyone who i've met through DA for supporting my art for so many years. Very very appreciated <3

Keep drawing what matters to you!

To be fair from my understanding the site's TOS have been getting pretty underhanded anyway, so it might be for the best @_@ I've been debating closing down my DA as well, or at least getting a lot more selective about what I put on it and focusing on my art blog. Not entirely decided since DA is still a viable place for promoting your work, you know? >_o But yeah as far as community itself goes it's very... *shrug?* I don't even know if there is much of a community on here anymore. I've been out of the loop on this site for a long time

How would I still get ahold of ya if I wanted to? =O The ask box on your Engelbaum blog has been down for months. Not like I did anything but pester you with weird questions and BS tho, ha

Yeah my biggest gripe with DA thesedays is that I was here to see it's glory days back when the community was strong, the site wasn't buggy as shit, the traffic was useful and the layout was simple enough to be useful to artists. The Tos stuff happens every other year now and its normally people overreacting, but I'm too tired to care about it anymore XD;; The site had been a deadzone to me for about 4 years now and the only reason i was sticking around was in the hopes it would get better somehow, but its just been progressively more disappointing. I've been here for 13 years now and just kinda lost interest in it, which is sad, but if i put my energy into uploading to my main audiences sites and keep a really good archive of my old art on my own website then people don't need to miss me here at all :)
Asks on Tumblr are turned off for the foreseeable future because Tumblr can be such a shithole of negativity, lol. But you're more than welcome to email me at the usual address, PM me on Patreon, comment on FB or Twitter ^u^ :heart: Thank you for all the support bebe!

XD Dude it's ok. All my art will be uploaded to my website archive so nothing is going to be lost. I love my old art too much to delete it.

DA got mega boring and pointless and over convoluted to what it used to be (good) so I'm closing my account after 13 years to focus on building my own strong website for my art and comic, rather than piddling away here.

*Goes off to save everything as possible*

...I feel like crying now...

I mean...IDK, you are just so cool and someone that I really admired and I always felt a little better whenever I saw motivational pictures and journals from you because I always stressed out over everything. I'm barely on Tumblr but when I got a notification about you following me, I felt both happy and surprised since I didn't think I would be followed by someone as awesome as you. Plus I've come to love your characters in Engelbaum. Even though they aren't human, they truly show that they too have their flaws and worries which always hit me deep since I would relate to some of the problems.

But...this is your choice so if this is what you've decided to do then I wish you luck out there...I might send this message to you on Tumblr.

To end on a lighter/funny note; I just realized I've been seeing the name 'Imagni' wrong. For some reason I've been seeing it as IMAGINI. Brain, you little trickster, you.

*hugs* hey don't get sad :D I'm just shifting all my art to my own website, which I'll be updating very regularly from now on, so you won't miss anything at all. Engelbaum will update in the same places it always does weekly. The only thing thats changing is not being on DA, it'll give me more time to draw and focus on making the Engelbaum website strong for people to enjoy. Tumblr I don't really chat a lot on, but you can still contact me on twitter and FB ^^

LOL and don't worry, tons of people say her name wrong, even people who started reading in 2008 XDD;;
:heart: Thank you for the support. Please keep reading at the links i'm gonna upload in a second.

Of course i will, buhuhuuhuhuh XD Keep drawing and keep pushing through the pitfalls of being an artist. It's never ever easy and you'll want to quit a lot of things at many points. But don't give up. Your characters depend on you :heart:

Take care ^u^

LEAVE THE MEMORIES ALONE

To be honest once this account closes, checking your future uploads will start to dwindle since I always see your newest stuff on here. Every once in a while I can see what's going on on your other sites.

Wish you the best in your future endeavors nonetheless.

I'm being completely honest when telling you that the only reason I still use deviantART today is to keep up with your work. I know that there are other places to do so, so I'm glad I'll still be able to keep up with the amazing and exciting adventures of Madame TRiPPY! Thanks for all the constant inspiration and dedication to everything you do. I know this isn't goodbye, but it's still kinda sad to see this place go. But I'm sure there'll be many more exciting things to look forward to, elsewhere on the Interwebs. Thanks again for everything and I'll see you real soon! In a new area and in a new light!

Thank youuuuuuuuu for everything, it's super appreciated. :) I promise I'll get all my old stuff onto my website and focus on putting out more new Engelbaum pages to read regularly. I really want to add a lot of content to my website since I've kinda neglected it for months. I want that to me my main hub rather than a side thing.

I understand completely why you would move away from DA -- between policies and a web interface that are no longer looking out for your best interests or security, DA has become very irritating to work with. That plus fewer places to upload your art will make you feel more like an artist and less like a juggler with knives under high stress.

Luckily I now have a Tapastic account, so you'll still be seeing me around! If you spot a comment from Henna (or Henna-Lawsonia) -- that's me! (Also, let me know if you want my e-mail -- the provider for the old one I gave you ages ago is acting up, so I got a new one.)

THISTHISTHIS. I'm so sick of my message center bugging out. Also, I used to love the subscriptions but its just STUPID now. The site feels really soulless now. The way I see it, if people really care about my work they'll keep up with it in other places that work better for comics and artists. Thank you for the tapastic follow <3 throw me an email at my usual address if you ever want to contact me :heart:

Thank youuuuuu so much!

I'm just putting my work in better places that are more useful to my work and audience. DA has gone really downhill and I want to clear up any stray bits of art i have lying around gathering dust into one giant archive of my art over the years. I'll be uploading regularly at my usual places, just not DA anymore.

Take care and thanks for the support over the years ^_^ :heart:
