Hello, not sure any of my watchers are still around, but I wanted to write this for them too.
So, I haven't been around on DA for a long time and won't be probably. But firstly I wanted to say it out just how much fun and motivation it gave me!! a Lot!
I'm sure a lot of you have been/are like that you know, being too shy to show their works to others. I was (still kinda I am) like that, but at the same time I really wanted to share them. And I think Deviantart was the perfect place to do that. I don't think I ever really got a rude comment, (the worst were just some spams ), people were always very nice and supportive here. I know that like anyone can upload anything, and that might be risky for the quality and stuff, but I think it's awesome. You don't have to be afraid, you can just show whatever you made and usually the right people find it and like it, and that's just great. Of course that doesn't mean you'll have thousands of views and such, when I was younger I always thought woooah! I would love that! But I have to admit, it's better that many people didn't see my crap :'D And a fewer nice and encouraging comments meant a lot more. They really meant a lot, I'm very grateful for them and for all the favoriting, watching, and just being there to see what I made, because I was so excited to show it like everyday at that time what I drew. And it was also great that it made me enthusiastic and made me draw a lot and made me improve. So yeah, thank you very much for everyone who made me more motivated and ambitious! <3
I think now it's not the same anymore. I got less dependent from this site, less enthusiastic about views and favorites. It might sound sad, but I think it could be actually a good thing. I think that shows that I became more confident, more independent, and braver, not worrying too much now what people think... Okay, I still worry because I know my mistakes, I know I still have a long way to go, but I want to accept my stuff more, and I want to improve too!
Now I changed to tumblr actually. It was kinda scary at first, to start over kinda, but more fresh, and it's quite different. The main thing though I guess I love better is that it's a much better surface for animations.
I don't want to delete this site, because I want to keep my old drawings here, see where I came from, look at it and cringe at myself :'v also as I said, I have great memories from here, from very nice people too, I'm very grateful to them! To You! And that nice atmosphere will kinda remain here I think.
I hope to see some of you on tumblr, actually I already have! Believe it or not, I do remember lots of you, your works or names, and I do see you from time to time on tumblr, thank you for finding me!
I have lots of motivation still, I want to make SO many things, I hope I'll be able to, and I hope you'll see them too! (:
