EDIT: SO, true to fashion, I wound up doing something and found out later that there was no reason for me to do the thing and I just look like a dumbass as a result (DA isn't actually doing the things mentioned in the post). Welp, oh well~ I still stand by the other sentiments I had for deleting everything though. It's just time for me to move on.
Gonna leave the journal entry up though. My last hurrah may as well be one that paints me as the giant idiot that I am.
Hey everyone, wanted to give you all one last update before this account goes silent.
It had come to my attention that because of some incredibly shady policies (source blog is pretty NSFW, as a warning) DA adopted in regards to hosting and using your art, I've since removed everything I've uploaded because fuck DA and what they're doing to other artists.
I'm not gonna lie, none of my work was remotely good enough to wind up sold and on a shirt. I nuked everything purely out of principle. Well, and partly because I almost never pick up the pen anymore. It's not a secret that any and all artwork from me has slowed to a halt. I honestly just don't have it in me anymore. At least not right now. I'm not sure if I will again.
I figure in the end, it's probably better this way. A lot of my early works were pretty cringey and hardly worth keeping, but I was using this account as a means of archiving all my work. And I won't lie when I said deleting everything was a bit painful, considering I had over eight years worth of work uploaded to this account. Lot of memories kept in everything. But, if nothing else, this is a fresh start, or a chance to start over.
I wanted to keep the account alive a bit longer though, to at least give the people who were kind enough to follow me and my work the courtesy of knowing why I did what I did. I owe everyone that much for the lack of new work. But also to act as a kind of warning of just how shady and scummy DA has gotten. If I find a new site to upload things to, I'll post it here.
If you want to get ahold of me for whatever reason, drop me a message on my tumblr.
Thanks to everyone that supported me over the years. It truly meant a lot, and it was for you that I made most of my work. Sorry it couldn't end on a happier note. See you when I see you~
