Yeah. I've been giving this a lot of thought over the past few weeks and have tried to convince myself to stay but I see no point at the moment. I was thinking about deactivating but I think it's a tad too drastic. I am seeing improvement in my art and I will continue to post art but likely only work to be used on other sites.
I won't lie, in fact I've hinted and mentioned it many times, I wish that some of the 69 watchers I have were a little more active. I know many of those who watch me are no longer active but is 10 out of 69 just favoriting something or making a one word comment too much to ask for? It's not even that I want to be popular but if you clicked the 'Watch' button and don't even bother to comment when I'm asking my watcher's advice or opinion then why did you bother watching me in the first place? I post Join.Me's in hopes I can get to know those who watch me better and I'm lucky if someone even bothers to look at the journal, let alone actually click the link to check out the session.
I don't see the point of being on this site, when it makes me feel bad about the art I do and it doesn't take much for me to hate my artwork. Why I recently put up free requests and only one person from those who watch me actually requested something, the others hadn't heard of me before then.
However when I posted this
for someone on Neopets, I thought that would be it but to my complete surprise that same person loved my work so much they asked me if I'd draw something else for them. There are many talents artists on Neopets are there are here on DeviantArt so I was quite surprised she approached me for a request. Nothing like that has happened here on DA and it actually made me feel proud of my work. On Pokefarm all I do is recolour sprites and I've gotten more interest there than here.
So taking everything into account, I'm going. I don't know when I'm coming back either but rest assured for those of you who do care, I will come back... eventually.
I would like to say thank you:
- I met you back on Neopets when we were first in that Sonic RP guild and you've been a good friend since, I really appreciate that!
- You've been a really great friend, I can't tell you how many time I've drawn Lance and Cara with their little daughter, just wish I'd drawn them to a quality I was comfortable with uploading. We don't often chat but when we do I always find myself having fun and you're artwork is always amazing. - I don't know you very well but you've been kind enough to comment and ask how I am every now and again and you're just as kind on Neopets. ^-^
Well, bye for now guys.
