Hello you guys :wave: 

Ah-hem... How are you all?
Well I hope? 

A few things I want to say: 

1. Thanks for the support on this boycott thing. I know to some people it's stupid and pointless but I really think/thought I was doing a good thing, if not mostly for myself to be honest. I needed a break and so why not? 
It did get the attention of an admin and stuff so I guess it wasn't completely useless. 
That aside I appreciate those that participated on their own volition, and thanks for understanding regardless of whether or not you agreed. 
To those who thought it was stupid and that I was an utter dumbass for doing it, oh well. I'm not here to appease you so ;P 

2. I posted this before but I'll do it again since people have asked despite it being posted. I'm still doing art guys, I haven't like ragequit art because of dA, good lord, haha! I've mostly been posting on Tumblr and Weasyl these days so if you're looking to keep up with my work I'm on those sites a lot.  
I haven't been drawing a lot of things I used to and to be honest my work has kind of moved to something else, haha! Been doing a lot of work with friends and collabs with people so... Yeah, it's different but the same I guess. 

3. I may be coming back a bit earlier than a month, I don't know. I'd kind of like to since I miss seeing the art and such but I'm a bit more cautious about posting my work here and if I do it will be watermarked clearly. As it were I got a couple notes telling me about art theft while I was gone so... It sucks but oh well, right? That just means I'll have to watermark things a bit more. 
I may post a couple pics today to dip my toes back in but I'm not sure yet. I know it sounds like I'm teasing or something but really it's just I'm unsure if I just come back early or stick to my guns regardless of the fact that I'm not sure they're doing anything anymore, haha! It sounded like a grand idea at the time but at this point it's more or less like 'what is the point?' since it appears that regardless it's not going to do anything. 
STILL... It helped me personally to step away from here for a while. I enjoyed it :) I missed this place but eh, I needed a break so... It was more for me than anything else. 

4. Lastly, to address the topic of commissions -- I may open a few in a while, not sure yet. I had big ambitions to open a bunch of them at the end of the month but to be honest I just don't want to. I don't know, I'm enjoying my freedom right now. I've got 2 commissions left and one of those is going to be pretty easy now that I have a direction and style to do with for sure, and the other will most likely be refunded because the person hasn't responded in the last 3-4 months. I won't open a bunch of them all at once because I don't want to have too much to do. I have a few options I've got that I could offer so... We'll see how it goes.

That all said, thanks again guys. 
A few friends have been trying to persuade me to come back here so... I may just listen and slowly meander back :XD: I don't know. We'll see how it goes.

Katobug! Thank you for the updated Tumblr thing, and introducing me to weasyl. I think I'm liking weasyl's setup more than dA's after so many years, but I can understand dA being familiar and people you know being here still and what not. Still however, I'm glad you're feeling better after your break!

Like a few people in the comments seem to be saying, I don't mind watermarks. If they keep your work safe, then that's all that matters. I haven't really posted art (as in drawins and stuff) on this site in several years, so I haven't experienced that first hand, but I can imagine how frustrating theft must be and wanting to prevent it.

Anywho, if you get your commissions up, I'm hopping in line if I can. Though honestly I'd have no idea what I would want you to draw.
