I realize I've been inactive and inconsistent for quite a while. I can't say whether that'll change any time soon since my motivation is sporadic and, well...inconsistent; but I have started drawing again lately, and I've made it my goal to invest much more into art and productivity.
I have decided to update my username to something less otaku-ish. Same goes for my Instagram which I'm a bit more active on: instagram.com/tashas_stuff
You'll see my latest post is actually one of my earliest works on here
Looking back at my old work, I have to give myself a bit of credit, I wasn't bad for a 15-16 year old, if I'd maintained the pace and passion for drawing I had during my earlier years on dA, I would have been so much better now. But I got burnt out and distracted, and during Art school of all places and times....
The past few months have been consumed with existential crises, self-discovery, and eye-opening insight. I have been seriously considering what exactly I want to do with art, and how I can fully utilize my voice and express my philosophies and insights.
These are, I would say, "the dark years" of quietly honing my skills until I'm ready to "unleash" them to the world. I don't know if that's a good or bad plan.
On a side note: One thing strange I've noticed on my deviantart is that I acquire several followers a week but my followers count has literally not changed for like 3+ years. This baffles me. Are people following me as quickly as they're unfollowing me?? I don't know what's going on here.
