While I have some unexpected free time in the midst of my finals, I decided to write this.
In my previous journal, I mentioned I plan on leaving DeviantArt. This is very true still. I still don't want to be here anymore.
I think I didn't phrase my previous journal correctly. I'm not leaving because people didn't leave comments or anything. If you didn't feel like communicating often, that's fine. You do you. I don't communicate with many artists often either and that's the issue behind my departure. This site acts more like a social media platform and the way its set up makes people naturally gloss over art rather than taking at least a minute to look. It's not anyone's fault that this happens. It's just adaptation to a certain environment.
Again, the main reason I'm leaving is simply because I've outgrown this site. It's just not for me anymore and it's something I don't feel enthusiastic about anymore.
I will NOT be deleting the account itself. Reason being that my work is scattered throughout the internet in some way. Should I encounter my work being misused and it's something that I really need to handle, I can just refer back to this account and say, "I'm the owner. Fuck you. Make your own shit."
This coming Sunday, I'm logging out. I won't be on here anymore. That's it.
PS: If you want to find me... No. I kind of want a fresh start as an artist. You will find me again eventually. Just not now when I'm trying to figure out my redefinition.
