It is very apparent that I long ago abandoned drawing and posting any of it here. Drawing is certainly not my strong suit but I've always wanted to be able to convey the things in my head to a visual form. Here lately I've been writing a lot but I don't really feel like deviant art is a suitable forum for written works. I do have an AO3 account now so if anyone would be interested in reading some fiction from some old ass anime series I can post my name over there. I've been using this place mostly to post photos in the last few years and while I am very, very, very, far away from anything remotely professional I do like to share the ones I find pleasing to myself. However, along with my kimono coordination's there has not been much else. I guess I'm kind of getting the itch to start drawing again. Fiddling around with things. Maybe now that I'm older and have more patience/focus I could actually improve some? I don't really know, I've just got so many ideas floating around in my head that I'd love to put into some form of visual media. I love writing and out of any artistic hobby I have pursued it is really what I am best at but I find the lack of any real comments or critic from people to be disheartening. Guess I can't have everything right? It's just that it's much easier for someone to look at something visual and take that in and have it affect them. Many times written works are well...too much work for people. Lazy bums.
But I mean, I do get it. Taking the time to read something is an investment and lets be honest, there are not a whole lot of prolific readers out there any more. Who wants to waste hours of their time reading something that could potentially turn out to be a huge disappointment? It's so much easier and less time consuming to just look at a drawing or painting or photo or whatever. Visuals give you instant gratification and that's really what society has become all about. It makes me kind of sad but that's just how things have turned out. Doesn't mean I will stop writing because I've always 99% of the time just written things for myself with the intent of having nobody see it ever. I guess...I just wish people would take more time than just clicking a 'like' button or a 'favorite' button. It is nice and flattering, don't get me wrong but it's also lazy on the part of the viewer and does absolutely nothing for the artist in terms of critic or compliment. Anyway...just some thoughts. If I ever do get around to drawing anything decent again I may post it here. Deviant art and I go waaaaaaay back so I think I'll always have an account here. Just wish I didn't have to pay for a premium account just to change my name. Literally none of the other stuff interests me in a premium account but I don't want to start from scratch with a new account either. I'm not fond of clutter in my real life or online and multiple accounts just seems well...like too much of a hassle. *shrug*
