Once upon a time I used to art.
United States
Ohai, DeviantArt. It's been a while.

I'm in college now; I haven't posted anything in months; I haven't done any art I'm proud of for even longer. But I showed some cosplay pictures to a friend last night, who insisted on looking at the rest of my gallery, and I was embarrassed.

A lot of my art was fanart for media I don't follow anymore. None of my older stuff even remotely resembles my current style. There was some emo stuff, some fanart, a lot of in-jokes with people I don't even really talk to anymore.

I say "was," of course, because I just deleted a lot of it. Over 20 of my older "pieces" (if they can so be called) are now removed from my gallery because frankly, I was becoming embarrassed of it. One could make the argument that "it shows your maturing style" or "sentimental value!" But if I'm going to keep an account going, I shouldn't have to be ashamed of most of the work in my gallery.

I didn't make any art for a long time. My computer futzed last spring, taking Photoshop with it, a new copy of which I have yet to acquire. But I've always been artistic, and very recently I began to express that again through a select few projects, both of which related to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And while I painted, I remembered how much I enjoyed doing this sort of thing, and I want to start doing more of it. I don't need a computer program to make art. Pencil and paper and brushes and acrylics are just as good.

So if I'm going to art again (I often use 'art' as a verb), I might as well show it to the Internet. And if I'm going to do that, I shouldn't have to avoid the dark recesses of my gallery. And that's why half of it's gone now.

I might axe my old journal entries, too. Hell, I don't even know if anyone's reading this. But I needed to do this, to clear the dusty cobwebs off my DA account, and start making things again.

Emerald out.
