So I have created a new pixiv account for now.
Hopefully that link works, if not just search for my name. I'm using the same name, and my current Ekaterina avatar here is my avatar there.
If you have a pixiv, you can follow me there. It is a Japanese site, and I like that. It's very interesting. I may try other places, but it is pixiv for now.
Now I'd much rather not be using pixiv. I'd like to just keep humming along here. But recent events may make that idea wishful thinking. But to be clear, the ball is in Deviantart's court. If I suddenly disappear, it wont be because I packed up and left, but because of a pointless ban because somebody is under the impression a character of mine is underage. I have not posted an underage character here. But apparently my statement of my own works does not matter.
I noticed that I have made 926 deviations in my time here. I started posting in February 2016, after working up the courage to post some things I had made. At the time, I felt most people would ignore me or tell me how terrible I was, and I would just move on to another thing and go back to gaming as a main hobby.
But it didn't quite work that way.
Most of the comments I received were positive, and I have to admit that made feel a little better about myself. It encouraged me to continue and get better. This place is something of a release, an escape. I really like it.
I very rarely look at stats. So most of these numbers were unknown to me.
As of now, I have 889 gallery deviations. I had no idea I had made that many!
I have over 102,000 pageviews.
Received 6762 comments...and I appreciate all of them.
My images were favorited 22,681 times
'Strawberry Fields Forever' is the most viewed with 7,542 views
'Sleeping Rose' is the most faved with 228 faves
1274 watchers, though many are not active now.
In the scope of things, they are not big numbers, but to me they feel very big. That users here clicked the favorite button 22,000 times on my works really blows my mind.
As I start up pixiv, I'm not even sure how I am going to do this. There's no way I can just upload 889 images! So some will be overlooked. It will certainly take a while.
As I said before, if you like some of my stuff, feel free to download them, as I cannot say how long they will stay up.
I will keep posting here as long as I can, and always appreciate the kind words many of you have given to me.
