hey everyone, its good to see you all again. that said theres some things i need to say.
first off id like to say sorry for not being on for...a year? maybe longer? I always meant to come back on sooner, but as usual things got busy. and to be fair, thats out of all of our control, and what iv been busy with has been very time consuming, college, moving and....well lots of personal details id rather not get into. but theres more to my absence to just being preoccupied .
being on deviant art for the first time a few years ago, i felt really content and happy because id always seen some....examples of deviant art by accident just from general web browsing, then during my first year of college, my friend told me a friend they knew used it, ok thats not much of an influence but long story short, i love to draw and was still getting used to social media, i think i joined deviant art way before Facebook. of course posting my kamen rider and power ranger monster drawings was a bit nerve racking, but after a while i began to post more, get feedback, and heck i built up enough confidence to try chatrooms, which was a bit up and down but thats just internet socialising for you. to be honest a lot of things sort of....put me off coming back here, for one thing a lot of people i had gotten to know started to leave, some are still here, even some i know from college ^^ but i was getting kind of discouraged as deviant art was sort of becoming a temporary hobby or one off thing before people move on to instagram or pinterest etc. I'm actually on a few social media sites/apps but i need to start using them more. not to mention i was ashamed because before i disappeared two people commissioned/requested art from me and well, i took too long for them, so long on one that the original person deactivated their account, I'm still a little confused, why delete them? then again its their choice....so yeah i had a lot of guilt after that, i finished it and hope to post it soon. whether it does any good well...
but, i want to come back to this place, to me its not just a website where fans can post questionable fan art of their favourite shows or an excuse to see how far you can go with art in terms of extremity or cringe factor, i always thought it was like Facebook but...with more pictures...ok more drawing pictures....look I'm not always good with words and i have a lot of self loathing issues, i cant say I'm expressing what i need to say all that well. i really like this place, I made good friends, drew some cool stuff, and to be honest id like to know how everyone is, everyone still remaining. communities i guess don't always last but some things don't always change, they don't say the same but what remains is always welcome to come back, i hope.
while iv been away a lots happened, iv moved onto my level 3 course in college with aspirations in either animation or illustration. iv moved to a new area, this kind of caused a lot of confusion and a bit of stress with my other family members, but thats been sorted out, roughly. iv been playing my console games a lot more recently, dark souls is......pleasant. oh and iv recently got a new phone, my old one i lost on new years. i really liked my old phone, it had photos i cant get back and it never seemed to break....well neither does this one but still. its where i found an app called
amino, i don't know what the general use is but for me its mostly used for joining and being a part of online communities of multiple things, transformers, power rangers, marvel, halo, yugioh, pacific rim etc. its really cool and a lot like here, albeit on mobile exclusively XP plus the whole reason i went there is because one of the communities is based on the animations of one, extremely talented
FENNAH, an animator on youtube who makes some great stuff. id recommend watching if your into independent animation and great quality rendering. i myself am having a go at both 2D and 3D animation software cause its always been of great interest to me....i mean Im literally just starting but hey better then nothing
I don't know when il start posting again, or what, i just hope i still have a place here and for anyone iv known before or gotten to know in the last few months, i hope youle still have me, i cant wait to start posting art again.
its good to be back
