For too long I've been putting all my eggs in one basket by calling deviantART my only online home for me to express myself. While I still love this community and log in every day, I've been feeling like I should jump on the bandwagon and get myself out there on some other platforms, so I recently made an Instagram account and have been adding a selection of artwork (and selfies of course) from my gallery there over the past few days, starting from oldest to newest and still have more to go before I have caught up. My dA name was taken there already (lol, why?) So here I am: www.instagram.com/chromattix/
I have too much artwork to bother uploading every single one so only a few from each year starting from 2008 and up were selected and all link back to the original deviations. Some might even be a little better resolution and unwatermarked than the ones here too but I'm still reluctant to give out huge printable files to just anyone, selling high-res files to people who want to print them for stuff helps pay my bills because I don't think I can stand pitching in any more hours as a damn waiter anymore
So hopefully reaching out to another platform will help me get somewhere better, either in art or modelling/fashion (a passion that I've been reluctant to follow and hope I'm not too old to try for now because it's really been pressing on my mind again lately) So because of this there might be a higher proportion of self portraits compared to my dA gallery, so if your'e in it just
for the art then your'e probably still better off following me here than there
Also been on Facebook for a while now [link]
Though admittedly that's more about personal stuff and less art-oriented.
I'm kinda all over the place trying to get my shit together so my upcoming 30's won't be as disappointing and eventless as my 20's were, I'm even dabbling into some dating apps since I'm just so tired of always being alone whenever I'm offline, so unfortunately there's no new art in the works until I either figure out what I want to do with myself (or just give up and go back to the way things were) But I'd say it's more to do with lack of time, not loss of interest. I still visit dA daily even if I can't answer all messages that day. DeviantART is my home, these other sites are just my, um - investment properties
