Hello. I apologize for the inconvenience. I realized that I wasn't being fair so I'll just post the links to my new accounts here if interested. Thanks!:)

Instagram1
Instagram2 (professional?)
Tumblr
Twitter
(Patreon is under construction)
(Maybe another dA account later? DA kinda makes me mad tho.)

I will probably be moving to these new accounts on their respective services, mainly because I don't feel as comfortable uploading there on my old accounts (and sometimes a fresh start is the best option). Also, if I follow you with one of these accounts, it's me especially if we're on good terms/mutual then it's cool if you decide to follow back.;0

I don't mean to make everyone chase after me like this but I have to do what I have to do if moving on makes me happy.^^

It's high time for me to get serious and for me to be taken seriously!:eager:

Hello again. I apologize once more for my inactivity. I have been away getting things set up with new social media accounts for a more "professional" setup. I will use these accounts to post works I feel I did the best I could do on almost like a portfolio. I also decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to have a fresh start to give art another chance after my chaotic adolescent years.

You see, only a few people I know actually know I have these accounts so it's not popularity I'm seeking (though it would be nice). Also no need to worry about art theft unless it looks really suspicious. I seek a newfound trust. I'd like to have people to follow and to follow me who respect who I am as an artist currently and for the future, not anyone who's held hard feelings from the past as I've greatly moved on from that. Not everyone knows what happened and that's fine (I still don't because my mind wasn't right). I still don't have the help I need if you will and my family issues are worsening, but I'm getting there with my new understanding of things. I apologize if I was ever out of place taking out my stress on you guys. I always appreciate your patience and support.:thanks:

======
Okay so first thing's first, I will be slow with updating for now. I have to get back into the swing of things and focus on practice and creating artwork I like.
I have created new Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and Patreon accounts. I also have a Twitch for streaming when I can. Everything is still under construction however. I plan to make most of my accounts SFW and since it's already been marked, I'll leave the Tumblr for NSFW as well as SFW.

I will also apologize for reuploads. I need placeholders until I create new work. However, even creating new work will be difficult because I decided to spend time redesigning characters.^^; Oh, but I have been developing my characters' stories as well!

If you are interested in following my new accounts, please don't hesitate to send me a message/note so I can give you the link(s)!


Thanks again. :)

I sincerely apologize for the lack of activity as of late yet again. I'm just going to discuss updates.

First off, I'm a bit confused at the sudden influx of views I got around Easter/April 1st to April 2nd. It was about 50 pageviews or so when normally I've been getting about 10-20 thanks to my inactivity. Did people think I was gonna draw a bunny picture or something for Easter showcasing my guys? That's cute but not at the moment. I've been busy (and I've been inexplicably sick but it's probably worsening anxiety).

Oh yeah, and other than that, I've been further developing my characters and I've done over 10,000 of those little gesture drawings.

Well you see, a lot happened in March. I dropped my phone and it got ruined so I had to get another in the mail which set me back a few. I've also been trying to find a real job (consistent) so I had to update all of my IDs and info, etc. so I could actually stand a chance to get hired somewhere other than the occasional ushering gig I had since 2016. Later on in the month, I actually got a call back from a local movie theater to work there during the Film Festival so I had to prepare for the interview and eventually I got the job to work in April. However, I'm not 100% hired yet as it's a temp position (more than what I had in my life) as an usher (actually more janitorial) and if I do get this job, which I'll know in about a week after my long working weekend (many hours), it will not be as hectic as dealing with thousands of people each day. It will put me on the path to earning more money to pay off any owed debts and so I can afford better art supplies and technology, and to fund my video game and figure hobbies. I need another computer, eventually another phone, and I'd like an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for artwork this time. (I'd also like to try for medical school but even that takes money to get into a good program to cover prerequisites.)

So yeah, no time or motivation for artwork because of this and I'm still not ready to be as active as I was when I was a college kid. It's just too much competition for something people are supposed to simply enjoy. This even caused an artist I've admired to eventually quit. I am in a bad situation right now and it doesn't help matters when family thinks I'm joking when I say that I need money and a job. I don't even have a proper workspace for my artwork yet and by that I mean a nice clean room with a desk and whatever else. I'd do commissions if I felt confident enough in my environment. >_<

Sorry guys. Thanks for your patience. :)

can you tell me the criteria of being a badass artist? and why someone would fall painfully short of being one if they don't lack in technical skill?
i just would like to know so that i can become one. not because i still want to join your group. i DEFINITELY dont want to be judged by you people again, i would never do that
but since i'm so terribly uncool i figured i should ask why
