i think it's obvious, considering i last updated in the summer of 2013, but i'm officially saying that i will only be posting to this account in the future for convention purposes. i'm going through the process of clearing out my 7 year old gallery. not everything, there's a lot of nostalgia factor and it's good to see how far i've come, but some things are being deleted, some things are just going into the scraps.
as an explanation for where i went, i've been focusing a lot more on my graphic design work in the last year and a half. i also play a lot more games (4k+ hrs for gw2 dear god) There's not a whole lot of time left for illustration or fandom art, though i occasionally still do it for fun or for selling. i'll still post prints here, but that'll probably be it. if you would like to keep up with me, i blog regularly on tumblr @ amaranthined.tumblr.com and have a tag for my work. i do post doodles and writing and all that fun stuff there, but it's reblog-heavy.
it's not really good bye, but thanks to all of my watchers for your support over the years. i grew a lot as an artist over my time here, had a lot of great discussions, and met some lovely people. i wouldn't have made it to art school and to my current career path without the years i spent stumbling over terribad anime drawings and then my hesitant first steps into digital painting, the inspiration and encouragement for which i got from this site and the community here. i know it's been ages since i talked to any of you, but i hope you're all doing well.
for old time's sake, i am recommending an awesome song in the mood section.
