Hey there! 

So, I don't really know who's still around at this point but I figured this was worth writing anyway. I wanted to let you know I'm 'officially' taking my leave from deviantArt. I've been very inactive the past few years and attempted to get back into the swing of things a few times but to no real avail. And after a few recent policy changes that deviantart made, I really don't feel comfortable posting my art on this site anymore.

It was a pretty great seven years ( Wow!! Seven years! ), and I'll always appreciate the good things this site gave me , it was a great place where I met a lot of really fantastic people and got to share my art publicly for the first time. I think that's pretty swell. Thanks so much to everyone who watched me grow through these past years, from folks who saw me through the 'warriors' years and those who hopped in on the tail end of things and got to see me drawing my terrible characters for the first time. I really do appreciate the love you've given me. 

I don't see myself regularly uploading to this site anymore, perhaps one day in the future I'll wander back to do something like adoptables OTC's etc. I don't want to say I will never ever use deviantArt again because god knows maybe in the near future it'll clean up it's act and become more of the booming site it once was but I don't see it being very likely, hence this update. My oldest deviations are in storage so I can still look at them, but the rest of my gallery is going to stay up as it is, I don't feel a huge desire to close the account. I might bounce on now and then to poke around a few things but I'm not really going to be posting actively anymore. Deviantart will not be a good place to follow my work or contact me.

But!! My friends, I still make art ( like a lot actually, I'm attending college for it ), and I still post it on the internet. If you're still interested in following my work you can do so in any of these places below.

( My art, personal posts, things I like, it's very active and essentially what I use now instead of deviantArt, you can message me there and see me upload things on a daily basis!)

( just art posts! nothing but, sort of like a gallery ) 

( the real good stuff ) 

Thank you again for the great few years! I hope I can see some of you again on different platforms and just, thank you so much for helping keep me invested in art. Love you all and I hope to see you again soon! :heart:
