Well... I'm not sure how many watchers are actually going to see this, considering it's been basically 8 months since my last journal, but let's do it anyway.

No doom and gloom for ya, just gotta say I've been thinking about my activity. I'm really not giving my all to DA anymore. I think I peaked in 2017, and I think that was a great time. Since then though, it's been harder to keep up. I'm seeing a lot of people I watch leave, but I think that's only because my gain/loss ratio isn't sustainable. I honestly don't remember how I got to meet so many artists before, but I think it was mostly stalking other people's favorites and seeing what kind of stuff they liked. :XD: I don't really seem to be able to browse as extensively, usually because I feel like I have a lot less time because of work. Plus to be honest, Twitter has a tendency of feeling a lot fresher because of the significantly more frequent updates, even if it's just text posts. I do still love the gallery format here. It's nice to be able to see an artist's work on display in a more archived way without worrying about it getting lost in the rapid fire feed. Though most of the time I don't take advantage of that, which is probably just changing interests.

I don't think I intend to leave DA outright anytime soon, but it feels really inconvenient to do things other than post art here anymore. I'm still happy to receive comments and notes from you all of course. :D I just can't say I'll be initiating nearly as often as I used to.

This is going to sound a lot like a goodbye, but I don't intend it to be just yet. Thanks to all the people who have stuck around to follow my artwork! I hope to keep making more.

If you're interested in seeing my more frequent sketches and stuff from other artists I share, feel free to also follow me over here: twitter.com/ShaidzArt If it's any incentive, I'm planning on doing a follower milestone raffle over there sometime soon. Be cool to have some of you guys join!
