At the end of my Core membership...

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 17, 2019, 10:45 PM
There's an incredibly high chance I'll be removing this account. (disclaimer: it may be sooner; i haven't decided yet.)
However, I'll probably make a new account. The username will match my Twitch name, as I'll be making things more uniform. I never cared to do so before, but Twitch has essentially become central to me pushing me to explore drawing in a way I never bothered to try before. I drew two animals in April, but then never bothered to after that. I've done two in in two months. I explore semi-realistic. I used actual soft drawing pencils and explore watercolor. I actually have a little community forming, and though it is small right now... I'd like to actually try growing it more since there's actual engagement from the people who come to look at my work. Not only that, but I've seen more growth in my art since putting more time in there. I've had more fun there as well. It isn't necessarily all about numbers, but I can't say that has nothing to do with it. It feels less like shouting into a void and waiting to be heard.

I'll be focusing predominantly on Twitch (kattasticnj) and be present on Instagram (kattasticartnj).
I honestly don't see much point in putting a ton of effort into DeviantArt. I'm actually looking at other art-based websites that I may consider as a replacement for DeviantArt eventually. For now, I cannot entirely let go because of all the time I spent on here in the past. As I've previously said, this website just is not what it used to be, and I'm honestly just preparing myself mentally to accept that and move on.

I won't be forgetting everyone.
I've met a couple of super awesome folks, and I'd much prefer to continue following you. I won't name names, and I do hope the few of you I'm referring to do see this journal. I not only enjoy your art, but you've been the few I have managed any kind of interaction with. Again, I won't be leaving this account for about three months... And then I won't be gone from DA entirely; I'll just be starting over again by posting art to a new account from its inception. As I mentioned at the beginning, the username will be matching my Twitch name for the sake of consistency across platforms... But I'll have a mention to this account name for a while. 

            But again, I'll be spending the majority of my time on Twitch, streaming my art process for folks. As far as I'm concerned,  DA will be a dump site for finished works. I'll be putting my time and effort into other spaces.

United States
NJ-based, self-taught traditional artist getting back to doing the art thing. I'm trying to explore new mediums, draw some stuff I didn't really draw before, step a little out of my comfort zone. I'm also totally open for commissions, down for art trades & collabs, by the way.

side note: this deviantart account sat for two years unused and entirely empty before i finally returned to start making and posting art. form account can be found:


screw it; changed my name... whether i end up staying or leaving. yolooo
Been a while since I shared it here, but I'll be streaming in about 15mins (7PM EST):

This is where I spend most of my web and art time these days.

When you buy $500+ worth of stuff but actually pay UNDER $150. Wassup Cyber Monday~~

Do you ever see a piece of art on the front page, as Popular in the last 24hrs... and it just screams trace & recolor? :| :| :| :| :| :| :| :|

Nothing really beats searching for new job opportunities while at your current job. I really must be checking out if I'm seeing this as getting paid to job hunt. 

    The incoming change to HR management truly was a final straw for me. :|
