Favourite genre of music: Rock (classic and contemporary), parody (aka-Weird Al), Movie soundtracks
Favourite photographer: Meh buddies
Favourite style of art: mine/the style of anyone who draws better than me

Favourite cartoon character: TOO MANY
But I think at this point I have to admit that my art has become a phase for me instead of a regular thing.

I haven't drawn more than a five-minute doodle in almost two years.

Clearing out a year's worth of messages that was SUPPOSED to result in me coming back here just resulted in me getting another year's worth of messages stacking up further degrading my motivation to do stuff here.

My half baked idea of unfollowing almost all the Tumblr blogs of artists I've found through Deviantart - including the blogs of friends from here - in an attempt to motivate me to come back here regularly backfired and I've lost out on months of contact with people.

I really don't know if coming back to Deviantart will ever be a regular thing for me again to be honest, and I feel really bad for that because every single one of you I've been friends with is someone I want to remain friends with in some capacity but the whole spending my online time split between finding a regular job (because haha fuck me most archaeology jobs at this point in my career are hopping around from project to project as hired work which can result in weeks or months between paychecks) and Tumblr, on top of the aforementioned lack of art for nearly two years, makes me feel like I'm not really gonna be a part of anyone's lives and vice versa in any big capacity anymore. And that really sucks but I know it's my fault
  • Listening to: meh
  • Reading: blah
  • Watching: jack shit
  • Playing: who cares? not me
  • Eating: I come here like twice a year nowadays
  • Drinking: so this part of journals is pointless to me

WOAH BRO your faves and comments are really awesome to see, thank you.

:iconpainiscupcakeplz: I'M BACK. SORT OF.

lol, I'm going to make a much better effort to fave and comment on stuff here again. Probably mostly gonna post art on my Tumblr tho just because :iconiunoplz: I feel like making myself a side art blog with occassional pics getting posted here too will work better for my current internet habits. Still feel like a bit of a dildo for letting deviantart fall by the wayside in the first place tho.

Nah don't force yourself, deviantart really isn't that great. You can post art anywhere you like, only thing is, commenting on tumblr isn't as organized as it is here. That's my only dislike about tumblr's notes system. In order to reply you've gotta make a whole new post and HOPE the person sees it.

I'd totally watch that blog.
I also saw your comment on Vero's dragon-D drawing and laughed seeing that our nsfw art has inspired you to attempt drawing again.:iconroflzplz:
 IS GOOD THOUGH made me kinda feel spechul I am inspirashun. :iconderpscoutplz:

Yeah that's my only complaint with Tumblr when it comes to art, because even though I keep replies set to on for all posts I make you only get like 140 characters in replies so the only way to comment longer than that is to reblog. Which I guess if its a drawing the person wants a lot of people to see but if it's like something really personal then you're stuck sending them an ask or making a post and hoping they see it.

But yeah since I think I'm going to make it it'll be something like jaredsartblog (actually that's probably exactly what it'll be since it's available lol)

yeah not sure why but seeing you two branching out like that made me decide to stop with the whole "pull out sketchbook and never do anything with it for a week before putting it away again" thing I've been doing forever now :iconlolwattplz: not sure how that works but I ain't complaining
