I am no longer posting new art on DeviantArt. If you want to post real art and have it appreciated, head over to ArtStation. I think DA is bloated, non-intuitive, and filled with Weebo Fanart that should have been deleted a long time ago, or hyper-realistic commercial art promoted by our Californian overlords.
I am no longer accepting Trade or Commissions. No one seems to want them and those who do are unreasonable and don't want to pay me what I'm worth and/or are hard to work with.
I am no longer pursuing illustration as a means to a career or moneymaker, therefore I will not spend much time on it.
I am no longer suffering fools. Nor pitying them.
I am no longer trying to cater to an audience. Haven't had good response or feedback in some time anyway. Everyone is busy with their own shit and if you don't have time for me, I don't have time for you.
I am no longer burdened after making this decision. Pursue what you want and take your freedom back.
