I'm a person who takes online friendships seriously, especially in a community of artists. So, on that note, I really am sorry that I've pretty much abandoned all of you. Birthdays have been missed. Life updates have been ignored. There are deviation stacks from many of you that have nearly 100 entries and stretch all the way back to June. I'll catch up with all of you, I promise. I'll try harder. The last few months have been pretty rough on me. I've spent so much time trying to get a job so I don't end up homeless that I haven't really had much freedom or drive to do anything else. And the problem with deviantArt is that when you have SO MUCH you're behind on, using the website begins to feel more like a chore than an escape.

I also haven't uploaded since...oh, jeez, I think it was July. Every project I've worked on has been for someone else (paid or not), which mostly prevents me from posting it on here. I've barely had ANY time to draw for my own sake for months. And when I do, it's usually just a doodle or something that has no business being uploaded. I certainly haven't improved my digital art skills either. Not that my lack of uploading affects anyone but me.

Anyway, I'm really sorry that I've been neglectful to you guys. You're my friends and I should make more efforts to interact with you. Hoping you'll forgive me, and I promise to try harder.

Hello :) Don't worry! I've been exactly the same. I started a new job and I'm so wiped out I haven't had the time or energy to do any drawing or uploading. I've missed a lot on here too but sometimes these things happen Hun xx

I don't check dA notifications box for a week and I lose your return! my prearranged apologies for filling you with messages XD

Anyway, having stability in your life is the most important thing, so don't worry too much about dA. Yes, you'll probabily miss some things here but it's better some than all. You will spend more time when you'll have it (oh my, I probabily made some grammar errors here :P). For now, keep calm and draw any now and then (for work but also for you), to relax yourself and conserve your skills.

Any news about work?what's about the illustrated book?

Haha XD

I suppose so. You're right. Hey, even if you did make grammar errors, you still speak English better than most native English speakers. lol

Oh, nothing's happening with that. Pretty sure it's dead. What's happening with you?

Ah thanks, that's reassuring :D

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! ): Are you sure?maybe it's only paused. And now?Have you found something else?

About me?...dunno what to write...I want to draw but at the same time I don't want; but I'm kicking myself to keep on drawing. Also, I'm following news about America, thanks to the election result. Speaking of which, I'd like to suggest you to see BrainDead series, if you haven't see it yet ;) Lastly, I see Strange Magic and The Trollboxs (I'm so slow XD) <3

I'm pretty sure. Haven't seen any updates in a while. Nothing yet, but I keep looking.

Oh man, I know that feeling. It's rough. :(
I'm sorry you've been sucked into my country's ridiculous election cycle. XD I haven't seen it yet! But watching all the episodes shouldn't be hard...the show isn't getting another season.

Oh, what did you think of those?! I haven't seen the second one, but I actually kind of love Strange Magic. :XD:

Don't worry.
Watch it, if you can, it's funny (or I think so) (:

I like a lot Stange magic, lots details are so cute <3 (my sis love how they made the ears and the noses and the characters expressions); I see why many people classify it as a 'B-movie' but I can't help it, I had so much fun watching it :D My only regret is we couldn't find an english version of the movie; fortunately the dubbing is well done and they didn't translate the songs (it would be chilling!).
Trollbox is a small pearl; the style of the characters and the backgrounds is great; movements are very fluid (almost doesn't seem stop motion). Cute story, even if it's sometimes easily predictable; the stranger part of the story is at the very end, and it's a pity because in the rest of the film is pretty well done: mind you, this part does not ruin all the movie but it leaves you with a sense of...I don't know how to describe it, I probabily should use 'ugh' and 'really?' and then 'are you f**ing kidding me?!'. But watch it, if you can.

Ok!

Me too. :) I love just love the music and the characters.

I know exactly what you mean about the story. Honestly, I just can't really get over the art style of the Boxtrolls. I just really don't like how it looks. It looks like somebody tried to do watercolors on a brown paper bag.

Don't worry, that's totally ok! You currently have much more important things to do in life and I'm sure everyone of your friends here can understand that. Just take your time to sort things out in life. :hug: I wish you all the good luck in finding a job! :heart:

Well, I'd much rather be working on art and hanging on here; that's more important to me personally. But unfortunately, money is a thing. :/

Hey thanks! I've started getting work as an extra in movies and TV shows!

Aww I understand. I can't really compare this to your situation, but when I was overloaded with schoolwork, I had been away from here for like 4 months. I really missed it here. And I lost contact with a few of my close friends. It's sad these things happen, but I guess that's just life :/ But remember, when things are really bad in life, they can only get better! Once you're all settled, you can work on your own projects again and use your free time for things you like to do =) Don't forget to look forward to these days :hug:

Whoa that's so cool! Sounds like fun =D How is it? ^^

Yeah, I remember that. It's tough sometimes. Thanks for the reminder. :)

It's fun...when I actually get picked up for work. XD
