I'm not on DeviantART much anymore, and am out of the Sonic/Sonaze fandom. Because of this, mixed with terrible self-confidence, I have gotten rid of a lot of pictures, drawings, and stories that people loved. I have received many comments and messages asking why I took everything down. I say it's because I'm out of the Sonic fandom, or because I feel like my art can't compete with anything else, but in the grand scheme of things those are just excuses. Me taking everything down was selfish, I'm not going to deny that. Just because I am a major self-cynic with my art, just because I don't like Sonic anymore, doesn't mean I need to take it away from those who DO love it. One man's trash is another's treasure. But there's no treasure if the trash is permanently deleted. So with this being said, I want to formally apologise to all those that I've let down. I've got nine pages worth of items in storage. But unfortunately, that is all I can recover. I'm really sorry. I don't think there's much Sonaze artworks in there...but I've seen a few.
I sincerely apologise, everyone. While I will never see the appeal in my works, you see things I can't. If I go onto the Sonaze groups right now and look under "Artwork", to me, every piece I see I will believe is better than mine. Regarding drawing, the competition is much too high. I've pretty much stopped drawing entirely for the most part. I've drawn a few Xenoblade stuff, but they're all on my Alice the Xenoblader Facebook page, since Xenoblade is an obscure fandom and it won't get much if anything here. Another reason I stopped posting was because I noticed the traffic had declined significantly. The newest stories and artworks I posted weren't getting any traffic. That brought me to the conclusion that people are moving away from DeviantART. This, combined with the fact that I'm 21 and have an adult life to live (sadly), has discouraged me from coming onto dA as often. I'm still on here, and I'm still keeping my profile, but I've found a different way of expressing creativity through writing and YouTube. That being said, I'm still writing a lot...unlike my art, I am more confident in my stories and have been continuing to write. I've written three novel-length stories already. The last one I finished was over a thousand pages. When I read my stories, I get this "one more chapter" mentality...AND I'M THE WRITER! So I'm more confident in my stories, that's why you can find all of my stories in Scraps. But the stories you see in my Scraps are not as good as what I've been creating lately.
But that's irrelevant. I'm here to apologise to everyone for taking everything down. I won't be able to salvage EVERYTHING, but I will unstore all that I can from dA. I can understand if there are some people in my Watch list that resent me, and I cannot blame them. I selfishly deleted a lot of stuff because of MY feelings. I didn't stop to consider what other people would've felt by these actions. This wasn't just a single moment. In my history of being on DeviantART, I've frequently stored and unstored stuff. All BECAUSE of this self-cynicism. I want to apologise for that, as well.
My entire history on DA was based on me as a teenager...so naturally, the mistakes I've made were immature. But that doesn't justify it. I'll do what I can to salvage the stored stuff, but I don't think I can bring back EVERYTHING. I'm sorry guys
Again, if any of you resent me for the things that I've done, I don't blame you. It was selfish of me. If you forgive me, thank you for everything. If not, I understand.
Thank you for taking the time to read this...and again, I apologise.
By the time you've read this, I'll have unstored everything. There won't be a single deviation in storage. No matter how much I cringe at something in my storage, I'm still going to unstore it.
