This is my first journal entry in what feels like forever! I feel updates are in order but long story short...
I've been trying to move away from Deviantart.
The reasons being... I've been uncomfortable about posting my art here. There have been art thieves, and even Deviantart's system were able to come and take whatever they please without permission or right. Due to DA's policies, they're technically allowed to use whatever's posted on their site for their own gain (we're talking about marketing purposes and advertisement), and I stopped agreeing with their terms and left to expand my horizons like twitter and tumblr. Then commissions (and a second one-shot I made for Shonen Jump) took over my life and I slowly stopped posting personal art because of it. So there's been little to no word from me to all the people who've supported me for so long, and for that, I'm deeply sorry.
Which is why I decided to reopen my DA to get back in touch with people who enjoy my artwork. It may be a shaky relationship with DA, but until I start seeing red flags for myself, I'll work hard to regain a following here! Artwork will be a little slow, but I can start rebuilding my activity here by posting artwork that's been shown on other sites I've worked on these past couple years. Until I can get my momentum going again, I ask everyone who still would like to keep in touch with me to bear with me for a bit!
There's a lot of work I'd like to get to, so please allow me to get to it at my own pace!
