It's been a while. I'm not even entirely sure why it took me so long to come back, or why I left in the first place. Might have been drama to be completely honest. I've always been really quick to just jettison people from my life at the first hints of drama and even quicker to withdraw from social things if I'm feeling stressed. It's funny because it's not like I haven't been drawing, a lot even, and it's not like it's gone unposted, just not to here. It's always gone up on tumblr and more recently out to twitter too. So why did I leave this place that's perfect for art posting?
Did you know I stream art now? It's on twitch
and it's a good time, small time and just starting out as an affiliate, but it's nice and usually chill and I do requests on Wednesdays, you should stop by. If you've got a tumblr, you can follow me there too at @donebydani
and that's where all the art goes, without fail. @empressshilane
if you like twitter, although it's mostly art posts and 6am sleep drunk mini rants about something that's nagging at me in my vulnerable sleep deprived state. I think that's all the stuff that matters.
Anyway, it's been a long time and I've missed deviantart, in a weird way. I miss having people comment and having a good way to reply to them. I miss conversations about my art. Not that there were many of those before, but it happened and maybe I'm just being nostalgic for high school, gross as that might be but let's see how it goes. Maybe I stick around and make some new friends and seek out old ones. Maybe I just trail off again because it's not fulfilling enough for the time spent. We'll see but I'm going to go with cautious optimism.
