I'm writing this journal as a goodbye to my friends here.
DeviantART turned into a messy place, full of strange stuff and people, and I really don't feel like staying.
I'm tired of seeing great artists with lots of talent waste their limited time and effort to make delightful pieces of art go unnoticed, and some talentless kids with empty heads and lots of time in their hands make thousands of views a day.
Only a few of you (two, in fact) will take note of this journal. I have 29 watchers. It's not much, but I cherish every one of you as I've earned this through hard work for almost ten years now, switching from almost 7 accounts. It's been a long journey.
I'm not writing this journal to whine like "boo im not popular whyy", but most of my works here seem to go unnoticed. It's frustrating.
I do know, though, that I'm not insanely skilled, but I do put effort into my drawings and paintings, and try to improve every single day.
The second reason is that I'm actually quitting manga/anime and comic style. I do enjoy reading and watching those, and I will still look at uber awesome works from my favourite artists at tumblr, pixiv and anipan.
But I feel like pursuing something new, something different. After a while, manga/anime style gets a little boring, and I don't feel like drawing it as I used to. I have nothing against those who work with that style, the problem is with me. I want something new.
Working on my degree in Fine Arts showed me how big the art world is.
Thank you all for the support.
Goodbye, I hope you all have an immense amount of success in your lives, no matter what you do with it.
