I've had a few years away from deviantart for no other purpose than the fact I found it difficult to get followers, and the really good artwork by other artists was making me sad; however, I've officially decided to take up art as a freelance job and on my very first day had quite a bit of luck (not through deviantart). That had inspired me... since the only thing I truly lacked in regards to getting my art notice is the advertisement. I've never been social about my art. I've never been one to show it off or flash it in someone's face.
It's about time I stop being so humble and do something with the skill I've spent years honing. So! To any of my remaining followers, I AM back. For good this time.
