Alright well I figure I should write this for anyone that happened to be curious why I haven't posted anything here in a long long time. I'll be honest, deviantart was starting to wear on me, I had my account for 7 years and I had nothing to show for it. It felt like people where watching me for the sole reason I happened to do fanart that was a character or series they like and that was the only reason why I was watched above the fact that they liked me as an artist. At some point I decided to stop uploading my work here, I rarely see artist that are even half as serious as I am, and if they are they are on tiers of popularity and skill levels well above me, and I got stuck in this limbo. The fact that so many of these artist here on this place are very casual about art and easily upset with critique being an "attack" to their art really made it hard for me to interact with others more. I usually offer critique as way to help others and and hope I get some back myself but unfortunately I've had to stay quiet cause I often don't have much more to say aside from the generic "good job" which I just feel like is such an empty thing to hear when for me, I want people to help me get better.
So I do have works I have been doing but I hesitate to upload anything here, I used to think I wanted attention but that wasn't it, I was frustrated with the fact that it felt like I could do better but never knew how cause the usual comments I got where "great job!" or "I love this character <3" and comments like that. I've been staying away from deviantart for that reason trying to rethinking how or why I would start using this account (or make a new one and start fresh). This probably going to be ignored by everyone but if anyone has suggestions I'm all ears.
