I lost interest in dA; beside that, I'm fine :)

Keeping the profile in case anyone wants to talk.

Come see me on instagram @instavanangelo

Woah, why'd you lose interest? Just asking :)

There's a couple of reasons. Any way, I appreciate you stopping by my profile to ask :)

I mostly make small doodles in my notebooks nowadays, no more big A4 sized drawings. I just have a lot less free time now that I'm in college. So there's a pretty big quality drop.

And when I do draw something big, it's something personal for others. For example, last month I drew a portrait of my best friend's brother, who committed suicide, and it didn't feel right tot put that kind of thing up here.

I noticed that whenever I tried something different on this profile, much fewer people were interested. I mostly stuck with anime/manga but I wanted to try something else, and it's kind of demotivating when you do and it then gets no comments, three views and a fave. Of course, when you follow someone you expect something from them, like a style, but I noticed that that kept me from trying new things. Like, why post here when sharing it on other places actually gets me useful feedback?

So I just keep to sharing on instagram and sharing with close friends nowadays. Instead of leaving this account without a trace I figured I would at least let people know I wouldn't be uploading anymore :)

Oh no problem! I understand how you feel with switching to other art styles: it usually doesn't go well for anyone. People aren't so broad-minded when they watch other deviants it seems :hmm: I've tried not to care so much but I still do. I'm sorry this community isn't of much use for you anymore. I'm glad you didn't deactivate though ^^

Yeah deactivating would just seem a bit rude to all the people I've met on here, you know? And the free cloud storage for the drawings isn't so bad either :D
