I'm sorry guys, but I gotta be honest here. Lately, the site just hasn't been what it used to be and it's kept me from really visiting here much. As time passed, fewer and fewer people that I like have been sticking around, and fewer still have given any kind of meaningful comments or feedback on anything I post. I understand that life gets in the way, but there's something deeper than that going on as well. Something's changed, and I don't know what it is. I used to be a much crappier artist that drew a lot more, and even though it was terrible quality, each individual picture got much more attention than they do now. I'm not sure how to feel about that except disappointed.
I'll stay...but I don't know how often I'll post my work here. If I do post art, it's going to be fanart. Even then, I don't know...
This is for the friends that I've made here that I want to keep following, and for the talent that I can still discover here, and try to support them. If any of you out there in my watchers truly are interested in still seeing my art, I'll be at phunphishtiger.tumblr.com
primarily and you can check out the web manga that Dragon and I have started to post every Wednesday at ruteriawebmanga.tumblr.com
. If you want to show your support instead of being the ever more frequent, ever frustrating "I look even if I don't comment" kind of person, feel free to hop over to Tumblr and reblog/like/comment on my stuff there.
I'm really sorry if I sound resentful, but maybe I am. I think I have reason to be, even if it's better for me not to be. This site is dying, the number of supporters that I've had over the years has dwindled to a number I can count on one hand (I won't pretend I was truly popular before, but I was definitely more so than I am now), and I just don't know anymore. I think it's time to just try my luck as an artist elsewhere.
So...yeah. Not deactivating, but probably not going to submit much more in the way of artwork here. Sorry about that. I hope you all have a good day.
