Ill put it frank, ive had a rough couple of weeks with DA, and i also had a misunderstanding with a good friend which has gotten me upset so basically that's the icing on my cake. Im going to be leaving DA for a while.
I am basically heading some advice i was given, to which i guess i asked for which was answered, im not happy with my work basically and im going to search up a bit for myself and what i want to do, for myself.
I might be gone a few days, or a few weeks, months, maybe more. But i thought i would let you all know.
but dont worry people in my Summer contest i will still be keeping tabs on it and the winners will be announced on September 11th, as well as me giving commissions and watching trades im owed.
As well as checking my notes from time to time if anyone wants a commission or trade or has done a fan art (HAH i doubt it) or just wants to say hi, as i will only be available really on Skype and Steam.
But i will not be uploading anything but 1 thing. Which will be on august 31st.
The whole reason why i came back here about a year ago has been lost in translation. I mean.... nearly 6000 watchers since i came back last august. This was a dead 3 year old account with nothing on it back then.
I came here with 1 thing in mind, to vent, and vent i did. The lovely character Cordis was born. Then i made myself as a character, and i was suffering from major depression at the time. So this was the only way i could escape it.
I wanted Cordis to be this character that could be known for that reason, and she was....for a couple of months or so. Then everything just went tits up.
This is why im leaving, i want to rebuild the relationship i have with my characters (mainly Cordis) and what drawing them and what drawing means to me, in general.
I will be lurking here from time to time, i will check up on things. But for now, the only thing im going to upload it my Gods Finest Anniversary Manga, This was my best chance to actually make a proper story which people could
try to understand.
This basically :
Watch out for he release on the 31st.
I wont lie, i bet 90% of you didnt even know i created Cordis for the reason i did. To most people she is just as sexual character, she never used to be, she grew into it, and this i feel is wrong. To most people i probably seem like some self righteous guy that draws himself with woman, no, no im not. And these people are the ones that dont understand, that's 90% if not more of my watchers.
And i cant blame you all, im to blame, i lost my way to what i wanted and got so side tracked with watchers and numbers to even realise after a time i wasnt even drawing for myself.
Its a shame really, this wisdom costed a price it shouldn't have, i felt like i lost a close tide with a friend, we are still friends but not like before. That very much depresses me a lot.
But with this, me and Cordis will make our leave,
Though we can never be seen, we are always watching.
Though we can never be heard, we are always listening.
This was the rule i made when i created Cordis as the God of shadows.
I will be sortig out some lose tides like the last trade i owe someone and payments for commissions and such,
But for the rest of you, see you soon, hopefully as a better artist with a better Cordis.
Good bye for now.
