I don't know how to begin this entry, so I'll just jump in.
I have not been on dA for long months, and even before that, I had only dropped in once in a very long while. It feels strange to be so disconnected, as dA had been my favorite place to hang around on the net, and definitely my number one place to go when I had new art to upload.
It changed around the time I started working my current job. Even though I draw and paint relatively a lot, I don't feel enough motivation to take photos or scan my pictures and edit them to put on dA anymore. I have shifted to Instagram, which requires almost no effort when uploading something. (
I wish you a very happy new year, I hope 2016 is going to be great for you! :D
All in all, 2015 was not very pleasant for me to be honest. I like to find the positivity in every situation, and of course I made some great memories, but last year started out quite horribly and all through the year there were too many bad things happening in my personal life and too many that just didn't go the way I hoped and planned.
So, I was happy to let 2015 go, and am really excited about the fresh start of this new year :D
The beginning has been far better than last year, I'm feeling great, and full of plans and newly found energy and det
I hope you're all so full of energy and joy as I am these days : D Spring is the best!
On the other hand, work still takes up much more of my time and efforts than I'd like to, and leaves much less to spend on art. Instead of 'big' pictures, I've been doing quick sketches just to keep my hands busy (still not busy enough, unfortunately, but I'm trying!)
I don't feel like uploading all those to dA, but I've made a tumblr sketchblog to showcase. Find me there if you care:
Also, if you have an artblog on tumblr and follow me, I'll probably follow back.
That's all - have a nice weekend!
It's a super late reaction from me, but woooooow,

Here's a cute crab in return <3
I've just moved about 75% of my gallery to Scraps.
I feel great attachment to my old pieces and have no intention of deleting them, but I also kind of don't want people to associate my art with my old drawings anymore. At first, I created a separate 'old art' folder within my gallery and removed the oldies only from the featured folder. But I noticed they still pop up on the right when someone looks at a picture of mine, and that's exactly what I wanted to stop. So sorry old art, out of the main gallery you go <3
Art-wise, I've been extremely motivated and focused since I've been back from my year in Japan.
Art is in my core,
