Geez, it's been awhile. Time to remove the dust and say a few things...
It's pretty obvious, but I haven't really been active with art lately. It's not that I don't enjoy it anymore; it's just not the hobby I enjoy doing currently on a daily basis. I have scribbled a few sketches down here and there throughout the past year with the intention of finishing them... only to never have them go far beyond the inking stage. Very often I find myself dissatisfied with what I've done simply because I find flaws I can't seem to fix right then and there, or I idle around and prod the piece for so long that I lose interest quickly. My interest in art will never die, but right now, I'm not as focused on it. I do tend to linger around on here, mostly just to favorite insanely glorious pieces. So, in a sense I'm not gone, just not active in other areas.
I still plan on lurking around, since I am watching a countless number of people whose galleries I've fallen in love with. But my own gallery will remain untouched for the time being. I have a LiveJournal set up that I may use for general art purposes and sketchwork, but it's currently inactive and essentially in reserve. Although, I am highly considering using it. I have considered using a Tumblr, and I do have an account set up, but... I have to be honest, I really am not a big fan of Tumblr, haha. Oh well.
This is Arty, signing off. Take care!
