I deleted my gallery guys- I've got it all saved onto my computer now, and it's all set up on my website. I'm still sticking around to comment now and then, but I can only stay here knowing that my art is safe where I can protect. I learned the hard way that I'm the only one that can.
Updates will be at my website from now on. I managed to get an oekaki board hosted from oekakaiart.com
for you guys as well, so check it out. You can get to it from the Oekaki link on the navigation of my site. IF ANY OF YOU DIDN'T GET IT YET AND YOU WANT IT, SEND ME A COMMENT, A NOTE, OR AN EMAIL, AND I'LL SEND YOU THE LINK. 8)
The protection and pride I once felt in the place have faded for me. I will always have a spot in my heart for DA, but for what it once was, not what it is now. It's been...tainted somehow. I've never felt so betrayed, but hey, life goes on. It took me a month or so to understand that from the moment that my characters were stolen, but at least I finally understood.
To all of you: Thank you for all of your watches, favs, and comments. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support. It was a good run here on DA, for what it was worth, and I'm glad I posted here during that time. I improved greatly with my work, and I believe I have all of you to thank for that. You guys have been with me since I started back in October of '02, and I'm deeply grateful to all of you. I gained a lot of fans, and a lot of friends. You all hold a place in my heart, and I hope that just because I'm moving to a website of my own, that doesn't hinder you from stopping by and saying hello. I still appreciate your feedback, and I enjoy hearing your opinions on my work. I still want to improve, hence why I added the Forum and oekaki board. ;D (Although the latter is just for for you guys to have fun, nyohohoho.)
Alright...that finally off my chest, I'm movin' on. Thank you again, all of you.
