Hello everyone old and new! I SINCERELY apologize for the absence/limited activity. (Would've been back earlier if dA hadn't any issues with my 3-month membership rebilling so I apologize for having nothing fancy...ever.) I do, however, have to mention that today marks the 8th anniversary of this
account's creation. Oh, and please don't misunderstand. I've actually been on deviantART since 2007 so this year also marks my 10th anniversary here altogether.My original account:
(Please excuse the old art styles. I was 14-15 back then.)
I'm not sure if I will ever get around to making any commemorative works. I can't make any promises (though I considered a sketch dump of works since May). I've been too busy not doing actual artwork (WIPs) and kinda "practicing" or whatever first. You see, I've been doing these gesture drawings for 5 to almost 6 months now. They're really small and I do at least 20 a day for 20 minute sessions. Right now I'm on the verge of reaching 5000 drawings all referenced from Quickposes.com
. I would definitely recommend these and similar gesture drawings for any artist whether they're beginners or experienced. (I just hope I'm doing something right.)I've also been dealing with some family problems. I mean, I've always had those but my grandma had major construction on her house and my dad's been sick (and as usual, there's nothing I could do to help really). So there's that.
- I reached my 1000 dA watcher goal this year.
- I finally found a pretty safe place to upload confidently (IG).
- I still don't have a nice workspace to actually do art comfortably.
- I'm still no good at communicating with others (so forgive the inactivity).
I'll get back to you guys later! I'll have to go through my messages soon!
Also, I've been more active on Twitter and Instagram and on occasion, Tumblr. PLEASE follow me anywhere you like!
Out of all of these, I think I like Instagram the best. Not only do I feel more welcome there in comparison to the others listed, it's more forgiving if you're inactive sometimes (like me) and they don't really have that silly "visibility algorithm" thing going on as bad. Only thing is they are more strict on content.
Thank you very much for your time and as always I appreciate the support.
