Wow, this place sure has collected dust...
Sorry, guys, I don't mean to vanish as frequently as I do, but it's taken a lot to sort my life out, and get the treatments and good habits I needed to stay strong and functional. But, as I've posted many a time over the past decade or so, "I'm not dead".
(Thanks for all the kind birthday wishes, and the comments you've left on my art! It means so much to me that after all this time, many of you still enjoy it, and many of you still think of me. Thank you so, so much.)
This time I will not be foolish enough to promise anybody a time when I'll start updating this page again, but I'm not abandoning it. One of the many things that has changed-or evolved, depending on how you look at it- is my art style, and the techniques I use, and I need to practically relearn..! It seems strange, I spent a whole two years barely drawing anything, so it's almost like learning all over again, with new tools and a new optimism.
That said, a month ago I got a brand new tablet! A Surface Pro. I didn't think I ever could, but me and my family found that we could do this on a really good payment plan at Best Buy, so ol' Purg is part of the ~wave of the future~ now. XD You may see art sooner than later, but I'm super busy with commissions, too! I'll share some once I post them on my Ikaruga-Riku account.
I hope those of you who run across this are well! Please feel free to reconnect with me, it's been so long since I've been around DA that I don't know who's still here, and now that I am healthier and happier, I would love to rekindle some friendships.
