Happy Easter everyone!
I wanted to write an update as my last journal sounded so productive and suggested I would be posting a lot over this year, however due to life, this will no longer be the case as much as I would like. I will still be active on here and try to reply to comments asap but please do not be offended if it takes me a week or more to reply as my life is currently very busy.
So I have also decided that I will no longer be posting personal updates about my life on dA any longer. I am just very concious of security and prefer random browsers not to know what I am doing from now on (I don't mind talking privately to my watchers however!).
I will however post purely art-related subjects and journals. Last year I have noticed a big decrease in interest of my artwork, and as much as I will try not to choose 'fame' over what I want to draw, I also find it hard to get motivated when I only get 70 favs on a picture which took me hours to complete. I think dA has become so clogged with so many users now that its hard to get seen, and although I now recognise that I am in fact not a good artist, I have spent about ten years of my life on this site and it means a lot to me. With this in mind I do not want to quit the site, however my constant motivator through all these years (and on my previous two accounts) has always had a common factor; my watchers. Now that interest is dying I feel like I need another motivation, and that will be in the shape of a style and theme change within my gallery. I'm aware that the whole of my art-life has been revolving around dragons and I am starting to get pretty embarrassed about that because I could have spend these years actually trying to improve in many different ways. So I won't drop this exactly, as its too important to me but do expect to see more variation and also so change in style!
I know I should be more active to re-gain an audience however sometimes what you want to do and what you can do are two different things and putting this to the side I'm pretty content and happy
A big thank you to all my long-term watchers who always make me feel great!
