I still think of this place so fondly
This is honestly where it all began for me, I feel like I remember all of it, all of the last 9ish years
Starting with old scanned pieces, drawing on pencil and paper and drawing over that with a mouse. Learning to press ctrl-s when I kept losing my progress when the power would go out during thunderstorms. Hours of every day spent just talking with ppl on here, creating completely free from misperceptions of self worth and doubt. Getting my first terrible little tablet, starting tiny animations.
I think I'm grateful I still have that passion and get to do what I like. I feel like one day I might come back here when the site is a lil more well structured, but for now it's nice to reminisce.
