I'm moving here: :iconsynderen: !

Before I explain the reasons, I'll first say -- no, it hasn't been an active account for 2 years XD only the last 2 months-ish.

REASONS (kinda long, I apologize): sooooo...I've gotten quite a few people asking the last few weeks "I don't understand...why? it seems kinda pointless moving" Yeah, I agree, moving accounts has always kinda confused me, especially since dA made it so easy to change your username. 
However, it's less a username thing and more a mental thing. Early high school, I was super active on this account. I tested out a range of styles and eventually settled on one that I loved (lots o detail and colors and drama hoooooo) which most people who watch this account know me for. Then, senior year of high school, life got REALLY busy and tough, and I had hardly any time for personal art. Freshmen year of college, I left my tablet at home, and thus I ended up on ~2 year "hiatus" as in, I wasn't doing serious art that whole time.

I tried to get back in the swing of things after getting my tablet back in the summer, but it was a really bumpy road. I guess the best way to explain, was I forgot how to draw. I forgot how to get inspired for pictures, and how to enjoy what I drew.

I dunno, sometimes you just see art by someone and you can tell their heart was in it. I could see my heart was in my older pics, but I couldn't remember how I'd done it! XD

I got really frustrated and self-conscious. I was trying to copy a style that I'd done years ago, but it was turning out worse; it was just a ghost of what I'd based it on, basically. And then I finally had an epiphany like "NO. GHAAAAA. I'm obviously not into this "style" anymore, which makes sense because that was over 2 years ago now! I have changed a lot in those two years, so will my art. I just need to go back to the phase where I test different styles and settle into the one that really belongs to me, figure out the 'roots' of what inspires me to draw in the first place."

So I did. Ugh it was a really frustrating phase, cuz so much of it was crappy. and that's basically why I've been so inactive the last several months xD I've been drawing a shit-ton, trying out stuff, figuring out what I really love now. FINDING MY CALLING /dies [ELABORATED A BIT HERE fav.me/d7qoz3r ]

And I think......the best place to post this new "art style" (in quotes because it's really not THAT different, but it's still different enough to me on a personal level) is on another account. Because I don't want to feel like it's "competing" with my old art, which is what had made me so upset and frustrated this whole time XD

So...yeah. That's it. I just need a fresh start with a new name and "new" art style, after all this time uvu it's a mental thing.

eek wow, that turned out long.
But yeah.. don't feel like you have to watch this new account, because it's NOT a continuation of THIS account! It's slightly different styles as I said, so I don't expect people who watched me for my old art to particularly like this one. (There are a few re-submits, mostly just cuz I feel they reflected my "new" style more)
And another quick thing: I'd hoped to make an announcement after I finished uploading my anthro art, but I keep making it faster than I submit it, so HEEEEE sorry if you aren't a huge fan of furries but you'll have to deal cuz I love drawing them hng they're real fun :iconheplz:

I'll post a few more "reminders" that I'm moving accounts, then this account will be completely inactive. I won't deactivate, but I will no longer be getting on~

So....until next time!

Funny, I normally check out all my watchers galleries, if only just to peek. Its actually odd that you slipped though the cracks. Basically I would have given a back watch instantly with a working style like yours. Not many people do soft cell and push for an eye full of detail. They all do it to be lazy and do less. I do it so I have time to do more, and so do you it seems. :)

Hey Indi! I saw that you already added my entry to the contest to your collection, so I guess I don't need to notify you. That tagging system is pretty neat, huh? Lol.

Well, I just thought I would drop by to say that all of the info is now there and ready for judging whenever you get around to it. I think when you added it, it was still missing like half of it's info, lol.

I had a lot of fun and I'm so happy to be a part of your contest! I hope my entry isn't super dry to read. :iconcryforeverplz:
