As part of the new year (2015 in this case), I am cleaning up and ridding myself of things that I no longer want either because they stress me out, are no longer all that relevant to me, or a list of other reasons.
To that end, I am all but leaving deviantArt. I have been considering this for quite some time. I haven't posted here in a long time. Even though I do continue to do stuff and post it on the internet, I no longer post it here. In fact, it has been a good month or two since I've even popped in to see what's up. I don't browse anymore and barely even glance at artwork that pops up in my inbox.
On top of that, some shady business practices have come to light to me recently that makes me wish to remove myself from this community.
Still, I have hesitated for a while, wondering if I was just being hasty, but I have decided to do it this year. It's not just one factor, but several that guided this eventual choice.
I am keeping my account because I like my current portfolio and would like to keep it intact, but other than that, I am removing all art and journals.
If you wish to continue following my art, or want to interact with me for some reason, you can follow my Tumblr blogs. The Art of Shadu is one dedicated to my art and design work. NSZypher is my personal blog.
Good luck to you all!
