Well, I apologize for my absence from dA over the past year.. but in all honesty, it has just lost its magic. Part of the reason why I feel this way is because it doesn't feel like a community
to me anymore, it's just one big popularity contest. And really, it's become so difficult for the "underdog" to even get noticed around here.
I used to feel like I was at home when I logged on every day. I just don't feel that anymore.
It's bittersweet for me, because if it wasn't for dA, I'm not sure I would be in the same creative place that I am now.
DA was the first place that I felt comfortable with expressing my creative side on the internet. So I will always love it for that reason alone.
With all of that said and done, I'm not leaving dA, nor do I think I ever will.. I just felt that I should explain why I have not been around. Regardless, I am still creating and still posting my work (some of it here on dA when I remember to). If you wish to keep up with me though, I would suggest keeping up with my Flickr. Flickr has drawn me in and I am in love once again. Flickr is my new home, for the time being.
If you care to view my recent work, here it is: [link]
Also, My dA subscription ran out a while back
I will keep posting here on dA, though. So you may see some new work pop up from me here and there, but my Flickr is more dependable.
I hope everyone is well, and I do miss all of my old friends around here. Do feel free to keep in touch with me.
