Hello again DeviantArt! Haven't seen your wonderful face since December
And hello to all my friends and watchers, i'm surprised I still have any after being so inactive all the damn time
So cutting straight to the point, I'm not as committed to DevaintArt as I have been before and after countless art blocks and frustrations I was ready to pack it all in and give up.
But I've had a few months to think and it hasn't been an easy few months. I've had my worries and my scares and my losses that I won't go into, but it's given me a good kick up the ass and made me realize how much I love my art and how dependent I am on it to keep me happy!
I've decided to stop the comic I've been giving myself false hope with. I had a fantastic story line for it, but I just never tamed my patience enough to sit down and see it through. Instead, that story has been picked apart and molded into a series of fantasy novels I have been writing outside of DA. Which leaves my horse character, Valentia. I will keep her, she is still mine and always will be and every now and then I will draw her but she won't be the main reason I use DeviantArt anymore.
I'm starting an almost clean slate with DeviantArt. I will delete all my crappy old art and begin to show you (hopefully) how diverse I am as an artist, and show you the different things besides horses that I love to draw! Saying that, I will still be doing horse art and a few commissions and random gifts for my pals, but for fun... and that's the thing I have forgotten, art is supposed to be fun
and expressive and I've allowed myself to become so wrapped up in getting it right that I can't breathe in the fear of getting it wrong!
Of course I appreciate dearly all of my watchers, those who comment, favourite and view my works and I thank you so much if you're still with me today and reading this journal
So I'm not promising art anytime soon, but it will come when it's ready
Thank you for reading, missing you all and I hope you're all well!
