Hey there, galte! I'm glad to find you on dA again(though, I haven't been using the website frequently. been busy with life stuff)! I love seeing how much your art has improved overtime. Just beautiful works. I look forward to seeing more to come!
I also wanted to say that I know how you feel about wanting to focus more on your own original works and separating from the domain of fanart. My friend tells me the same thing about their own work. Building a foundation on your own stories and own art is so important. I also want to be confident and to have fun with the characters and stories I create myself. Just wanted to let you know I respect your decisions and am excited for any future stuff you have planned.
Hope you see this comment! Dunno if dA changed their messaging systems or not over the past few months or years haha. Gotta get back into art and writing this summer. Good luck out there! Have fun always!
