"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
Everyone look! Abielle is back! Am I talking in third person?
Why yes. Yes I am.
Okay world, I know what you're thinking...how dare you show your face after disappearing for practically a year??
Yes, well indeed I dare.
I haven't done any art or fanfics or whatever in so long. What I have been doing is writing a novel for my new original book series, "Hafu Sans Halo", slated to be out for the world to see in January.
So there's actually a really interesting story behind this. Back in the early 2000s I came with this crazy idea that I would be a manga-ka. So I brainstormed the story, complete with character sketches blah blah...
It was supposed to be a cool hybrid of shonen and shoujo styles. Turns out though, drawing is freaking hard so I pretty much forgot about it for like, 10+ years.
I decided sometime last fall that I still liked the story enough, so I turned it into a novel. I've wanted to write and publish a book for a long time so I'm still a bit amazed (and terrified, let's be honest) that it's happened. But a manga version might be something I attempt in the future as I (hopefully) get better at art in general.
And what does that have to do with Deviantart?
I think I will likely update Z-Homies in the near future, once I get my act together (keyword: time management skills, a work in progress). I still love doing fanart. If I feel up to it, I will draw more of it. But I hope to post OCs from my book, with the hopes of improving for future-manga-goals. It's a journey I hope others will take with me.
For those interested in learning more...
You can keep posted by visiting hafusanshalo.com and subscribing to my mailing list. Or follow me here on Deviantart, if you want to look at random pictures. I dunno.
Is this shameless self-promotion? Yes. It totally is.
And now. A trailer-ish video I made using the Sims.
