It's been weeks. I know it's not been unusual for me to disappear at random without so much as a message or trace, but it bothers me every time and I am getting tired of being so unreliable. I know this is a problem I need to deal with on my own, but it isn't fair.

However, I will admit that, on top of being more busy in my life than I have been in a long time at the moment, DeviantART has been losing some of its charm recently. Perhaps it is something in myself that is altering my interests as I grow older and my life grows more complex, or maybe I actually have been so occupied that I have had less interest in allotting free time in my day to drop by-- whatever the case may be, it breaks my heart and I do not want to succumb to a premature final goodbye, for that will happen when I determine it to.

With that said, I have one more thing to mention, which brings me to the real reason I write this: I want to thank you. Some of you who watch me and put up with my disappearing acts have continued to remain in contact with me here for a long time now, and I have never truly been able to express how grateful I am to you over comments or notes for the kind words you give me because it means a LOT; a lot more than I can express online. You know who you are, and your words, advice, connections, insight, stories, lessons, and moving creations are, beyond doubt, the very best thing on this enormous community I have ever encountered. You have forged warm connections which bear weight and emotion even over the anonymous expanse of cyberspace, and have put a smile on my face during times I have been feeling down.

Perhaps it is somewhat too personal or unbefitting of me to go on like this, but I feel it most appropriate to be expressed because it is the very truth. I cannot say it enough; so thank you, once again, from the bottom of my heart.

For now, there will be a general hiatus which may last a few weeks to a fair few months, during which I might drop by sporadically. As mentioned previously, this is not a final farewell. If you would like to contact me outside of DA, additionally, you may send me a note regarding such and I will get back to you as soon as possible. The option is always open.

Love and best wishes from me to you, in kindness and in thought. :)

This is me.

Not too long ago I used to be a terribly awkward high-school student with low self-esteem, a dim view of human nature, and a lack of interest in anything conventional or mainstream; I used to be quite full of myself, as though I was smarter than my peers and anyone else I associated with; and I used to have such a dim view of human nature that I though I so much more unique than the rest of the world. I was an angry young person who pushed a lot of people away from me for no reason at all. But, you know what? I'm tired of being like that.

I think it took me a while too long to figure out that such a way of life was so negative and unusual for me that I was growing weary of myself. Looking back, I realize I was just going through that same premature discomfort with myself that we are all familiar with as adolescents; such discomfort made me cantankerous. I wish it hadn't, but I am not unique or exemplary like that; I am only human, and that is the best I can do.

Now, I am gradually becoming more and more adult. I am getting older and wiser- approaching my summer, as my Dad would put it- and my discomfort is melting away. The world is looking less and less threatening; the days have grown so much brighter; my mind is clearer, and my thoughts are fuller. I laugh and cheer and share that exuberant joy with others, changing my reputation from introverted and bizarrely off-putting to likeable, kind, and sociable. I love being around my fellowmen and peers, hearing what they have to say, and smiling with them. I am developing a gentle love for humanity and am proud to be a part of it. Indeed, I still cry and feel sadness and anger; but those phases come so much less often and do not last as long. So much has changed.

Nowadays, my interests have fallen into scouring scientific articles about intriguing odds and ends in psychology, biology, and trivia. My imagination has grown so active that it has extended into the building of worlds and paracosms, stories and lore for those worlds, and beings to inhabit them. I enjoy listening to music, watching science fiction shows and movies, and spending happy days with the people closest to me, even in their passing- never shall I forget them. I look to days to come and my future as it unfolds before me with more of a smile.

Brikea (request for OOM8990) by I-Plexiglass
Brikea (request for OOM8990)
This was a request drawn for my good friend OOM8990 of his drow (dark elf) rogue Brikea, a character he created for a souped-up game of D&D 3.5 (has some derivatives from Pathfinder).

I have uploaded the sketch to DeviantART for the efficiency of references on his part. Otherwise, this was a solid, rudimentary exercise in proportion, female anatomy, and character design.
Feedback is always appreciated!

Brikea belongs to OOM8990.

I believe I've become somewhat good at identifying what artists want to hear about their pieces, and I delight in pouring out every analysis I can find. Their reactions make it all worth it- it gives me
a warm feeling inside. :)

Always a pleasure, Jo^^

I'm glad Artists like you know how to compliment and make yourself feel great about it instead of feeling a sense of complimenting yet feeling envious inside. That warm feeling you get after such comments definitely eliminates the feeling of feeling jealous, that's for sure!
Plus, why should we be? It should be embraced! And you're doing just that. ^^;

You're doing an awesome job. Keep those comments comin'!

Haha^^ I agree. I quite love seeing other artists' pleasure from hearing my comments, as I know it always helps in little ways. :)

Thanks so much-- I'd be happy to.
