First of all, I don't do pixel art anymore. If you like to order a painting or a drawing from me, you can read my new commission info HERE
Second, I'm leaving Deviantart. The community and the website system here are never meant to support original pet artists like me. I'm not into fanarts, adoptables and I no longer paint semi realism pretty humanoid arts, so there will be nothing new from me that most DA members want to watch for. There's only few people in DA that will appreciate my current art style and my feathery kids so it's no longer worth my time hanging around here.
I'd like to focus on my Petopet store
now, creating more bird themed gifts for bird lovers. I also like to have more time drawing my comics for my blog
, especially after I have opened a Patreon account
. I believe this is the best for me.
I had thought about leaving DA for years since my passion gradually moved to animals. But I always postponed it due to some bitter sweet memories attached on all photos in my pet folders and some really nice people I've come to know. I thought that I could at least use DA for image storage but I've just got to face it, it's no longer necessary and I really have no more business here. DA has nothing more to offer me as a pet portrait artist. It's not DA's fault. I've changed. I've finally found what I really love doing in art and I realize the people who will enjoy my works are out there.
So, if you like my birds and my arts, please follow my bird facebook page
for their updates. If you have birds and like to show their pics/videos to me, or just to chat about birds, please join my facebook group
for bird lovers. If you love to read my bird comic strips, please subscribe to my comic blog
, you will get a notification via email for new comics. You can also find me and my birdie gang on my Tumblr
I won't delete any deviations, all those comments on my pet pics are very precious to me.
All previous arts I submitted here, the faves, the DD, my senior status... they are parts of my history as an artist, so I won't erase them. I might still come visit my pet photos once in a while, just to remember the good old days when I still had my dog, my hamsters, my quails, my bird Pocky... they all live here. This is like their "home" too.
Goodbye, DA... Thank you for all the fond memories. I've embarked on a new adventure... I hope some of you will join me in my new journey.
