[TL;DR] I'm leaving deviantART but I'm not closing this account. I will still upload finished artworks in the future but will no longer respond to comments and messages on here. If you wish to contact me, contact me on tumblr. Also, if you want to follow me on tumblr or Facebook. You can follow the links below.
I know what you're thinking: "YOU'RE LEAVING?"
Allow me to answer that with both Yes and No.
As the title indicates, this is my official notice of departure from deviantART. Despite being a part of this place for SO many years (almost 11 years). I'm just not as dedicated to it as I was back in the day and I've felt that way for a few years now. In retrospect, I owe a lot to dA for my growth as an artist and I've made lots of friends during my active years as a deviant but a lot of them are not as active on deviantART, have moved onto other platforms or just moved on from art altogether.
I won't be deactivating my account, deleting my gallery or anything crazy like that. I'll be keeping this account and I'll still upload artworks. It'll just be finished artworks so this account will be a portfolio more than anything. But yea, I'm essentially moving away from deviantART, and onto other platforms. Mainly tumblr and Facebook.
I just want to take this moment to thank every single person throughout the years that has supported me. From all of the faves, watches, messages, comments, gift subscriptions - I appreciate them all. I know I don't reply to enough messages or comments but I definitely read them all. I hope my departure doesn't cause any confusion, especially to my new watchers this year. I have been considering this for a long time and with the whole Core Membership that dA is trying to bring into the system, that was what made me decide to finally move away from dA as my main artist platform.
I'll be putting my focus towards tumblr and Facebook, but more focus on tumblr as I will be active on there with basically any and every art endeavour from now on. So if you wish to continue supporting me, you can follow the links at the top, I will appreciate it big time. If you choose to stay, no biggie. I wish us both the best of luck!
As of this journal post, I will no longer be responding to comments and messages here on dA. If you would like to contact me or ask me why I'm leaving deviantART, you can ask me on tumblr.
It's been fun while it lasted, guys. One love. Peace out
