Long time, no see...
So you guys might be wondering where I've been these past months and not being able to post art. I've been busy this summer and school started for me around 1 month ago. And for me this is an important year as a 9th grader, because after this grade I'll have to switch schools and choose what type of career path I want to take. I'm planning on taking the art and programming courses, and I'm striving to become a designer of sorts. But generally, this year has been absolutely stressful and I'm tired of a lot of things that had happened, so I'm taking a long break from a lot of stuff.
But enough about that, this means I'll be way less active than I already am, and generally I want to focus on work. And I've also lost interest in dA to an extent, since the site is sorta dying and I was never popular on here. While I do make art for the sole purpose of fun, it does feel lonely when you stumble across a lot of great art but the artists themselves have left the site. Most of my friends have also left the site, so it leaves me even more unmotivated to post. And I feel like no one appreciates my art as much as before...
I don't know if I'll abandon this site entirely but I will definitely not post much. I'll still try and check notes and my notifications, but that's about it. If I ever come back and post more often, I'll either clean my gallery a little or make a new account.
If you still want to contact or support me, I'm planning on being active on my tumblr art blog ( @praline-toff
). I also have a main blog you can contact me on for simple chatting ( @katchi-mae
). I might try and post elsewhere too (like twitter, but not til when my account is unlocked).
I'm also planning on closing down my main discord server, since it leaves me bad memories everytime I check it. I doubt I'll make a new server though, since I need a break from handling servers too (as I've been doing it since mid 2017). The only server I'll be trying to handle is my DR Roleplay one. If you want me to come onto your own or whatever server to talk with me more, feel free to add me on discord ( Maechi-Toff#3853, but sometimes this name changes randomly so feel free to ask me if it doesn't work). But I won't gurantee I'll talk much til I know you better.
I've also been trying to get into other fandoms or anime. And while I'm not out of the DR fandom yet, I am slowly losing interest and I need new things to talk about and draw fanart of. As of right now I'm getting back into watching Persona 5 let's plays, watching BNHA/MHA, Detroit: Become Human and Evangelion. I have a whole watch list of let's plays and anime I might check out. But no promises.
Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me for this long, and I'm sorry everything had to come to this. Hopefully we'll meet again at some point in time. I wish good luck to all of you.
