A lot of time has passed since I've been quite active on DeviantArt, and a lot has changed as well. I recently decided to return to DeviantArt and to draw on a more regular basis. I will be doing a few things different from now on however:

-I will not be drawing manga any more
After years of drawing manga almost exclusively I just thought it was time to move on to other styles. The amount of progress that I made during my manga drawing years was also very small in my opinion.

-Colour will be more standard
Most of my art that I made in the last year was only black and white, I want to implement more colour in my art in the future, to create more immersion and realism. Note that this is my first tame actually making coloured art in such a large scale, so please forgive my noob mistakes.

-More original work, less fan-art
In the end it is a lot of fun to draw fan-art, but personally I enjoy it way more if a piece is actually originally designed by myself. Maybe my art will look worse if I don't work from an exact reference, but I really want to focus on my own characters and stories. Maybe a full story will evolve eventually, not only do I draw on a daily basis, I've been taking story-writing lessons at school as well.  

-More experimental sucky art
After struggling with school I finally started to draw more often, this means I create more art, but not all of those drawings are good enough for my DeviantArt in my opinion. So I will not be uploading every drawing that I make, but sometimes I will combine some drawings and put them in the same artwork in order to avoid spamming peoples DeviantWatch. So the main upload format from this point will be either big and somewhat detailed pieces that took a lot of effort to make or complications of smaller doodle like drawings of knights or superheroes for instance.

These are basically the things you can expect from me from now on. I can't promise I will be uploading on a more regular base forever, but I will be trying to draw a lot more than I did in the past year. I regret some decisions I made back then and I have not been improving my drawing skills one bit. But I hope that some of these changes will help in the future.

Hey there!
Im from the leaderteam of :iconart-isourlifepotion: and would like to ask you some questions so we might be able to improve our group :)
Sooo, feel free to answer the questions honestly - it's not a test xDD Im just curious about what we could do better :3

1. How happy are you with the group as it is at the moment?
2. Do you read the Journals regularly?
3. What prevents you from becoming more active? (not enough time, etc?)
4. Do you have any suggestions what we could do more/improve on?

So, thats about it :)
I wish you a nice day!

Dear Camuro,

I am very happy with the group, it is very nice and interactive. I have joined the facebook group as well which I think is a great initiative. I do not read the journals often, but I do read all the facebook posts. The reason why I do not upload or contribute as frequently as I would want to is because of my full-time study.

What I would like to see added in the group is a larger variety of gallery options. A lot of artwork that I make do not actually fit into the existing folders, tough I am excited to share them.

Nice to hear that! ^-^
Also, if you want more folders in the gallery or have suggestions in general you can message the leader team at any time :)
Now, that we are at it, what kind of folders would you like to have?^^
InryDanmaku Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014
I think the number of folders is expanding quite nicely :), but I do a lot of setting and environmentally art which I am often very excited about, but they don't really fit in the 'maps' folder. I think some folders like that would be a nice addition.
