I'm not abandoning this one but it'll strictly be for Sonic art now. That's what I established it as and I don't feel comfortable making a transition to other art, so I figured separating them would make more sense. I do want this new account to be my main once it's gained some following, so while I'm not abandoning this account. I am technically still moving to a new account. Take that how you will.
I am deleting non-Sonic work off this account and reuploading it on my other account. I won't touch the requests and gifts I've done in the past however. I don't like when artists delete/store work I've paid for so I won't do that to other people. (Not that I blame them for doing so, mind. It's still their work.) Below is just a (what was supposed to be brief XD) explanation as to why there's a new account. If you don't want to read it, just jump past it, it's cool. I included a TLDR for you. Aren't you special.
I love Sonic as a franchise and I enjoy playing the games. Admittedly though, I'm not very good at drawing the Official Sonic Characters (Heck, I wanted to draw Sticks when she was first leaked by Big Red Button but I never got around to it.) but I'm now feeling like my 'Sonic style' is better of being made my own with none of the defining Sonic features. Notably the prominent muzzle and connecting eyes. I've tried drawing my characters with 'noodle arms' before and it didn't sit well with me, so they've always been drawn with my knowledge of anatomy in mind.
I still enjoy drawing characters in the style from time to time though, which is why some of my current Sonic FC's will remain as such, rather than being changed to a more Anthropomorphic/cartoony style, or quite simply 'my style'.
- Rydi and her family aren't staying as a Sonic FC's as they had little connection to the Sonic franchise aside from style and a minor mention of Planet Eggs that can easily be changed. I'll either use my Sonic persona as a mascot or design/use another character to be identified as a 'main' FC.
- What I will say is I do have characters with ties to Chaos emeralds and their energy. So those guys will stay as Sonic FC's. For those of you wonderful people actually able to keep up with my characters. This is Spear and Lunar and the characters involved with their story.
I won't bother saying who is and isn't staying as Sonic FC's because there is a good chance nobody is familiar with half of them anyway. Don't worry if you haven't a clue who they are, they are practically non-existent in my gallery. Knew the ones I mentioned? Have a cookie. :3
I know half of my watchers probably can't remember why they watched me or who I even am. (Or maybe I'm the only one who has that problem?) and I know that moving accounts is pretty normal on DA but this is important to me. I want to be taken seriously as an artist and I feel like that can't be done with Sonic characters. I feel like I can't really improve the way I want to. I want to draw darker stuff and expand on the backstories of my OC's.TDLR;
I want to start drawing less Sonic related art but I still enjoy the style. So I made a new account to draw non-Sonic stuff. This will eventually become my main account, so I am technically moving accounts. RydiStorm
will be for Sonic work, nothing else. I know moving accounts is nothing new on DA but this is a big step for me. I have plans people, big plans.So my new account can be found here:
(It's still pretty bare because I'm reorganising and re-uploading non-Sonic art from this gallery every week or so to avoid art spam.)
This will have my other art. Mostly Nintendo fanart and concept work from the graphic novels I'm working on. So expect to see a whole array of stuffs!
Seriously though, if you're a Nintendo fan then I hope you'll check my new account out. I plan on uploading Zelda, Pokemon and even Splatoon art in the future.
Thanks for reading, that's all for now!
