Hi everyone! I hope all you lovelies have been well.
It's been a long time coming and after careful thought and consideration, it's time for me to bid my farewells to everyone here on deviantART.
This site was where I began a great new step in my artistic journey, and I was so happy to meet so many amazing fellow artists. DA has always held a special place in my heart. But returning here once more after a long hiatus has left me feeling like I've grown up a lot. And the things I hold dear to me are not the things deviantART currently embraces.
There are many little reasons for my departure. But the final reason that cemented my decision has to do with the fact that I personally hold myself up to a high standard of creating high quality art. And with DA's current file compression (which I've known about for a while), I cannot achieve any sort of visual clarity with the painterly brush style in all my drawings I post. All social media sites have some level of compression, and that's

Though it may seem (through my absence of posts) that I've neglected painting altogether, but nothing could be further from the truth. I have been extremely active and still continue to be behind the scenes. Here on DeviantART, I choose only to post finished pieces. And as many of you are aware, I like to take my time and enjoy my painting process. But I know at the same time, many of you are also very eager to see more art from me.
And so for you, I present a little parade of all the artwork I've been working on. Everyth

It's been less than a week since I've posted this piece, and now the sudden DD for it has me smiling silly with sunshine! This art piece is so very near and dear to my heart in so many ways. Not only as it's a drawing for one of my favorite video games, but I learned so many new art techniques and had so many creative insights while working on it. Thanks to this piece, I now have a crystal clear goal of where I want to go with my art, and so to be awarded a Daily Deviation feels as if the wind is truly in my sails!
Awwwwwww~!! Thank you so much, Yami! I'm so sorry for the extremely belated reply, as life has been keeping me too busy lately. But nevertheless, your kind wishes touched my heart today and made me smile so brightly. Thank you so much for bringing great joy into my life.
