So here's that update.
As you may have assessed, my deviantArt account is mostly inactive and has been for a number of years now, actually. I keep it around primarily to look at art I get linked to through external sites so that I can avoid the mature content filter, because viewing deviantArt without an account is like the Club Penguin of art websites. I occasionally pop by to clear out messages and I don't really go and look at anything.
I also just don't draw anymore. My graphics tablet is not only in disrepair, it's missing pieces. And between moving twice since my last post, being away at college, and just generally not keeping track of the thing because I never have the desire to use it, I will probably never find those pieces. Aside from one class that required me to draw and paint and a few concept sketches for cosplays I've done, I have not actually done any art in about a year and do not really consider myself to be an "artist" in the traditional sense of the word. Drawing is actually kind of depressing to me now. Because no matter how much I practice or try to learn, I don't improve. I fall back into old habits, or I'm inconsistent, or I'm too lazy to take extra time to make things look pretty, or I simply cannot master fine details. My hands are shaky and I am too impatient. So, with that in mind, do not expect any more updates from me in that department.
However, if people seemed genuinely interested, I might be willing to post cosplay pictures here. I have fallen in love with cosplay over the past two years, and am now a theatre major learning to become a theatre costumer. However, I don't plan to be active on this site anymore. My primary website these days is tumblr, and I presently have two blogs.
If you're interested in keeping in touch with me, you can do that through my recreational blog, which is www.eccentricpacifist.tumblr.com
If you're just interested in my cosplay stuff, I post all of that on www.q-q-kachoo.tumblr.com (I post all my cosplay stuff on my personal blog, too, but q-q-kachoo is specifically for cosplay and serves as an archive for my costume work. I'm still kind of an amateur, but I'm improving!)
Also, if you're just checking me out on here for the first time, be aware that all this stuff is ridiculously old. I'm not really the kind of person you see in my deviantArt posts anymore. I'm a lot older, probably markedly more bitter and sarcastic, a lot smarter, and a lot dumber. My personality has changed, and my fandoms have definitely changed.
Anyway, this'll probably be the last journal I ever post. But that certainly does not mean I'm gone. Hit me up on tumblr, or ask me for my Skype.
