I was going to write a lengthy journal on how I've tired of DeviantArt. But I won't. Instead, I want to talk about my current art experience. I may be quiet but I am still creating. I'm sketching. I'm sculpting. I'm painting. I'm writing. I also study full time.

I feel like the content of my galley no longer reflects who I am. I always admired artists who could make good fanart, but it was never up my alley. My own fanart was always about one part self-fulfilment and another part getting unwarranted attention. And it continues to get it ten years after its creation despite its extraordinarily conventional forms. It's not about the art. It never was. And I'm twenty-four now; too old to care about fandom opinions.

My original content rarely gets as much attention. Perhaps it's not good enough. Perhaps it's posted on the wrong website. But actually, I'm happy with that.
I feel like I'm still looking for my true medium. I'm probably not. I'm probably just walking around waiting for the day that my art will become extraordinary. But trying new things is good for personal development, so that's something.

In short, Dev has been my online home since I was sixteen and it is time I moved on.

Thank you for being awesome!

Also, give these guys a watch, if you haven't already.

I'm contemplating deleting my gallery. But I might need another place to go first. We'll see, time will tell.
